Kerasal is a foot ointment. It is used to help make your feet softer. You can by it at most drug stores. I got mine at Walgreen’s. This stuff is like a miracle cream. I have been doing all kinds of experiments. Who would have thought??
I love the stuff! I originally purchased it for my elbows. Yes, my elbows. I was getting rough elbows from leaning on them a lot while working Online. Nothing worked. I tried everything, including; Vaseline, moisturizers, olive oil, vitamin e oil, you name it. Nothing would even touch the roughness.
Then, I though, hey, let me try some heel ointment. This is where Kerasal came in. It worked almost instantly. Seriously. I was shocked. After a few applications, my elbows were no longer rough. Yeah!
So, then I actually used it for it’s original purpose…LOL…my heels. Guess what? It worked there too!
Me being me decided not to stop there. I though man, if this stuff is that good and moisture filled, why not try it on some wrinkles. LOL. Yes, I went there. As soon as I put it on, I noticed the line fade a tad. I put it on the one I blame my husband on. LOL. You know the one between the eyebrows. It’s a line that drives me nuts.
It is slowly fading. I mean it is still there. However, the Kerasal has definitely diminished it enough that I feel better about it.
Kerasal is so much more than foot ointment. It is a beauty product that every woman should have. It has so many uses and I am still experimenting with it. Buy some. Use it. LOL. Let me know how it worked for you!

Positive Woman. You need to associate with people who share your vision. People who will cheer you on and be there to help pick you up when you fall or fail. People who will be up beat and a positive influence. No one needs to be around people who are always finding faul, and pointing out all the reasons they can’t, or should not do something. Learn to be a positive voice in your own mind as well. How we feel about ourselves shines through whether we realize it or not

Applying the nail care tips below will help you maintain your fingernails in prime condition.
As our fingernails are so noticeable and convey a message about us to everyone we meet, it is essential we take just a little time and educate ourselves on how to care for them well.
What follows is a list of nail care tips divided into do’s and don’ts…
Nail Care Tips: The DO’S
DO drink plenty of water each day. It’s good for your general health and a well hydrated body contributes to healthy nails. Cracked nails may indicate the need for greater fluid intake.
DO apply varnish remover before applying nail polish. This removes any grease on the surface of the nail and gives extra life to the nail polish, so make sure you do this regardless of whether there is old polish on your nails or not.
DO take vitamin supplements unless your doctor advises otherwise due to other health considerations. Vitamins A, C, E, and B12 are especially important. Additionally, calcium, zinc, iron, protein, and folic acid will help avoid white marks appearing on the nails and prevent nails from becoming brittle. Research the foods you need to provide you with these essential vitamins and supplements.
DO use a good quality buffer preferably once a week, no more than twice a week. Be sure not to buff too vigorously and not for too long to avoid damaging the nail. Just a brief gentle buff before applying nail polish can help prevent the polish from peeling due to a rough or uneven surface on the nail.
DO use a soft nail file rather than an emery board. Emery boards can be too rough and damage the nail easily unless used with great care. Better to use a soft cushion nail file and wash it regularly for repeated use. It almost goes without saying, metal nail files are a definite NO NO!
DO wear protective gloves when doing any work that requires the hands to be submerged in water or come in contact with chemicals. Preferably use gloves with a cotton lining so they remain dry inside. Fungus loves a moist environment.
DO give attention to the cuticles regularly, using a moisturizing cream often to avoid the cuticles from drying out. Overgrown and ungroomed cuticles can adversely affect nail growth.
Nail Care Tips: The DON’TS
DON’T file backwards and forwards as this can cause splits in the nails which become even worse if water penetrates after hand washing. Rather use a gentle one way stroking action with the file along with a little patience.
DON’T file the corners of the nail as this can weaken them and make them more susceptible to breaking. File straight across in a way that produces a soft, oval shape. Pointed nails break easily.
DON’T file nails when they are wet. Make sure they are completely dry.
DON’T use varnish remover and reapply nail polish more than once or twice a week. Preferably select a varnish remover that contains moisturizers to avoid the nails drying out.
DON’T use your nails to scratch hard surfaces, pick at an object, remove staples, or serve as a digging tool. Just take a minute to get a proper tool for the job and avoid sacrificing your nails!
DON’T over manicure the cuticles as this can damage them causing them to thicken and overgrow.
DON’T ever cut the cuticles or use metal or sharp objects to push them back. Purchase the proper tool for the job, an Orange Stick. Hold it at an angle and gently push the cuticles back without damaging them. Using a cuticle remover first will help make the job easier and avoid damaging this sensitive skin.
After a nail care session, conduct a little test. To see how smooth your nails really are run them down an old pair of tights or pantyhose. Any snags will help you locate the nail that needs further attention.
The nail care tips listed above require some time and effort and perhaps initially a small investment to obtain the necessary professional tools. However, once you have them and get into a nail care routine, the benefits will make it all worthwhile.
You will feel confident and flash your nails with pride.

Applying Mascara - For best results you should apply two coats of mascara. This will give you enough definition to really make your lashes stand out. You must allow the first coat to dry completely before applying the second coat. Otherwise, you may wind up with clumpy tarantula eyes, a definite no no.
Broken Lipstick. Have you ever had the cap of your lipstick fall off in your purse? I have! If your lipstick breaks, take off the broken portion with a tissue, then slowly wave a lit match under the broken piece of lipstick. When it’s melted enough to be pliable, place it back on the base. Finally, put it in the refrigerator, uncovered for 5 minutes.
Problem: Pimples. If you have an unsightly pimple pop up it can be a real downer, especially if you have plans that night!
Solution: If you catch it before it becomes a monster, apply fresh lemon juice to it every night before bed. It will dry it out. You do not want to apply it to your whole face or you may dry out your face. This is for targeted spots only.
Listening. This is a vital ingredient to a healthy relationship, and proper communication. Many women, like myself, are multi-taskers. This can be a problem when communicating. We are not really listening if our eyes are on our task and not on the person speaking to us. Eye contact is key. When we give the person speaking to us eye contact, we are forcing ourselves to listen to what they are saying. So, look the person in the eye, pay attention, and respond at the appropriate times during the conversation. When these concepts are applied, we should be well on our way to better communication and listening.

Communication is one of the most important parts of a healthy relationship. It is important to be honest when you are communicating with someone. Good, honest communication builds trust in a relationship. Listening is another important part of communication. It tells the other person that they are important to you. Always keep the lines of communication open and healthy in all of your relationships.
