BUST FIRMING CREAMS ON HOW THEY WORK
The bust has a natural propensity to sag and become flaccid, which in turn obscures the delicate feminine physique and makes it less balanced than it should be. There are some ways to stop this process and help give your breasts firmness and extra smoothness. Using only ingredients that retain moisture balances the skins Ph. and allows a good invigorating massage. You can try one or both of the following methods to see which works best for you.
Bust firming creams containing phyto estrogen plant molecules whose structure mimics estrogen. This is the structure that, according to the makers of these creams, give notice to the brain to produce more estrogen. In turn, the release of estrogen stimulates breast growth. The specific ingredients of these creams usually include wild yam, fenugreek, and red clover root and aloe burdock. Other ingredients include vegetable oils, vitamins (toning and firming the skin), and vitamin E that softens the skin.
The creams are applied directly to the breasts by hand. Many firming creams suggest applying the cream by massaging into the bust, as if a lotion is applied. Most women bust creams are applied once a day, for 5 minutes. Once the cream is applied, phyto estrogens supposedly help stimulate greater blood flow to the breast which causes to enlarge. It is during the application that phyto estrogens supposedly penetrate the breast tissue and "fool" the brain to grow breasts. Some creams have an oral herbal supplement used in conjunction with the cream for more effective results

HOW TO CARE FOR EYE CONTOUR
Wrinkles may appear at very young age and "crow's feet" from ages 30 to 40.
The eye area ages earlier, there are fewer collagen fibers, elastin, and no sweat glands and is not that oily in this area. There is a large concentration of blood vessels and lymphatic systems that are slower.
The area around the eyes needs special care because your skin is sensitive.
Wrinkles around the eyes are the first to appear, given the multitude of movements you make with them during the day. The area around the eyes has 22 muscles and the skin is very thin and sensitive. The thickness is 0.33 mm and is still very fragile to external aggressions i.e. (cold, wind, sun, polluted environments ...).
The bags, in most cases are due to a thickening of the skin, water retention and fat under the eyelids.
To keep the area around the eyes looking better it’s necessary to rest and hydrate this area enough so it remains elastic.
Basic rules for the eye care:
Use suitable eye contour RICH IN NUTRIENTS
You’re twenty, thirty, and forty and over, you must use an eye contour for: wrinkles, dark circles, bags, lack of hydration...
Application around the eyes
After cleaning the skin use a toner and moisturizer. Then put a drop of eye contour on the middle and ring fingers (the application around the eyes has to be with these fingers because they have the least power in hand). Apply the eye contour by gently massaging around the eye area.
Then with these two fingers, you tap around the contour of the eye, also moving to the outside of the eye (where the crow's feet are formed), making sure not to get cream in the eye which can irritate. The purpose of the tapping is to massage the area to better penetrate the cream and have a greater effect.
The area of application is usually around the eyes for (bags, dark circles and crow's feet), but if you have a swollen upper eyelid it can also get a little to lower inflammation. The upper eyelid by itself is usually very fatty, so it is not necessary to apply every day in this area.
On cleaned face apply around the eyes morning and night.
Beware of this area
Remember that the area around the eyes is the most delicate on the face, so you have to be very subtle when it comes to removing make up or applying a moisturizer.
Do not overload with makeup
Always apply concealer, but remember that "less is more" when it comes to makeup, especially in that area. Beware of powder products because they can revive and create wrinkles that do not exist.
CHIGACO ARTICLE ON OBESITY IN THE ABDOMEN
CHICAGO (AP) — The number of American men and women with big-bellied, apple-shaped figures — the most dangerous kind of obesity — has climbed at a startling rate over the past decade, according to a government study.
People whose fat has settled mostly around their waistlines instead of in their hips, thighs, buttocks or all over are known to run a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes and other obesity-related ailments.
Fifty-four percent of U.S. adults have abdominal obesity, up from 46 percent in 1999-2000, researchers reported in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association. Abdominal obesity is defined as a waistline of more than 35 inches in women and more than 40 inches in men.
During the 12-year period studied, the average waist size in the U.S. expanded to 38 inches for women, a gain of 2 inches. It grew to 40 inches for men, a 1-inch increase.
"The increase is a concern. There's no question about that," said Dr. William Dietz, an obesity expert formerly with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, now at George Washington University.
The expansion in waistlines came even as the overall level of obesity — as defined not by waist size but by body mass index, of BMI, a weight-to-height ratio — held fairly steady.
"What it suggests is that even though the obesity rate may be stable, fat distribution may be changing, which would mean that we shouldn't be complacent about the plateau," said Dietz, who was not involved in the study.
Dr. Earl Ford, a CDC researcher and the study's lead author, said the seemingly contradictory trends are puzzling. He said it could be that Americans are exercising less and getting flabby. But because fat weighs less than muscle, they are not necessarily getting heavier.
The study cites other possible reasons for the increase in belly fat, including sleep deprivation and certain medicines. Also, researchers said the increase might be related to pesticides, the plastics additive BPA and other chemicals that mimic hormones that can affect weight. But the connection is speculative and unproven.
Belly fat not only makes people look apple-shaped but often means fat has built up deep inside the body, around the liver and other abdominal organs.
Compared with fat that lies closer to the surface, this "visceral" fat secretes lower levels of beneficial hormones and higher levels of inflammatory substances linked to obesity-related ailments, Dr. Lisa Neff, an obesity specialist at Northwestern University. She was not involved in the study.
"In people of the same weight, the person who carries weight around the middle is going to have higher risks" of obesity-related ailments, Neff said.
By 2011-12, the last year studied, 44 percent of men suffered from abdominal obesity, up from 37 percent. The trend was more pronounced among women: By 2011-12, about two-thirds of all women were affected, up from just over half in 1999-2000.
The researchers analyzed data from CDC health surveys and in-person exams. Adults' average age during those years was 45.
Previously released data from the same surveys indicate that about 35 percent of U.S. adults are obese, a level that hasn't budged much in recent years. Those surveys define obesity as a BMI of at least 30. For example, someone who is 5-foot-4 — the average U.S. woman's height — would be obese at 175 pounds.
Ford said that for both kinds of obesity, the bottom-line message for patients is probably the same: diet and exercise.
