Love the almond milk! But I might try soy for mine
Yum! Good recipe, thanks for sharing this :)
Interesting that you put in almond milk rather than just regular milk. How come? @Nisfit
The dates sound like such a good idea!
@caricakes Thats what I was thinking, I don't really need protein powder every day so I'd be fine without it.

Six Healthy Snacks that Keep You Hydrated
Whether you’re outside playing a game, or enjoying a nice afternoon hike on your favorite nature trail, staying hydrated is crucial especially when the weather gets warmer. But, what happens when you’re feeling parched and you find yourself stuck at your 9-5 desk job? It’s easy to grab that Coke from the vending machine, or pick up the cupcake in the communal kitchen; however, choosing those items over water will arguably keep you more dehydrated. Below, you will find a list of alternative snacks that are filled with fluids and keep you feeling guilt-free throughout the day. Watermelon You can dice them or cut into small wedges to create bite size pieces. Pick up with a toothpick or fork to reduce sticky fingers and having to run to the sink to rinse your hands every 5 minutes. Celery If you love crunchy textures, celery is the perfect alternative to chips, pretzels, and crackers. Celery is 95% water and filled with potassium and vitamin K and can easily be paired with peanut butter or hummus to add some extra flavor. Cucumbers Filled with vitamin B6 and K, cucumbers are refreshing to eat and hydrating to the body, which is why you see a lot of people wearing them over their eyes or in a facial mask. Mix in a salad or eat them alone to get the maximum hydration needed as your day progresses. Strawberries This berry is a healthy sweet treat option that’s loaded with vitamin C and Fiber. Throw some into your yogurt or make a nice summer salad with a low-fat dressing to keep you feeling full and hydrated. Grapefruit If you’re in the mood for a snack that’s both tangy and citrus flavored, then grapefruit is the perfect option. It not only lowers your cholesterol, but also shrinks your waistline for those looking to lose a couple extra pounds. It’s easy enough to slice it in half and eat it right out of the rind. Cantaloupe Both sweet and nutritious, this fruit provides high levels of vitamin A and C, while being a low calorie snack. You can freeze it into sherbet, or puree it, and add it into your favorite smoothie.
Lasers Vs Chemical Peels - What's Best For Your Skin?
Scarring from acne? Fine lines and wrinkles? Pigmentation and sun spots? Is any of this ringing a bell? They do happen, regrettably, and when they do, we panic. We've looked everywhere, from skincare products that claim to remove age spots to lengthy Google searches, expecting to find the 'magic' treatment that can eradicate the skin's textural imperfections and beyond. Fortunately, there are alternatives. Chemical peels and laser treatments, two skin resurfacing techniques that remove damaged skin to encourage skin regeneration, are used. What is the final outcome? Smoother and more rejuvenated skin. Combating skin problems has never been easier, but if you're new to the world of skin resurfacing, it might be intimidating. What Is the Difference Between Chemical Peels and Laser Treatments? Skin resurfacing techniques such as chemical peels and laser treatments remove old skin to promote the formation of new skin. Both procedures are frequently used to treat acne scars and hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun exposure issues such as pigmentation spots. Chemical peels and laser treatments are distinguished by the procedure itself. The first, as the name implies, employs chemical treatments to remove damaged skin, whilst the second employs lasers. Chemical peels use different amounts of acid solutions to treat the skin's outer layer. There are three types of peels: superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial chemical peels (for example, VI Peel and lactic acid peels) are delicate and exfoliate the skin lightly with weak acids. Medium chemical peels (for example, glycolic acid peels and TCA peels) are more invasive and penetrate the middle and outer layers of the skin. Deep chemical peels (e.g., phenol acid peels) are the most potent, employing strong acids to penetrate as well as remove damaged skin cells. Laser resurfacing treatments use light beams to penetrate the skin, eliminating one column at a time. Although laser removal is more exact, it is often more expensive than chemical peels. There are two types of lasers: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers (such as CO2 and erbium) offer the best effects by vaporizing the skin. Non-ablative lasers (for example, Fraxel) are less intrusive to the skin because they heat it rather than destroying it. Because non-ablative lasers are less strong than ablative lasers, numerous sessions may be required to achieve the optimum results. While chemical peels and laser treatments are distinct in their advantages and the concerns they address, there is some overlap in the issues they address. A strong TCA (trichloroacetic acid) chemical peel, for example, can give resurfacing comparable to that of a resurfacing laser, or both peels and lasers can be utilized to treat acne and acne scars. In terms of skin tone, the two surgeries are also dissimilar. Chemical peels assist those with darker skin tones the most because they are an excellent pigmentation treatment. People with dark skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation concerns such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to an overabundance of melanin in their skin (PIH). Acid solutions are used in chemical peels to encourage collagen formation, and antioxidants are used to further penetrate and treat pigmentation in darker skin. What Are the Most Common Chemical Peel Types? Vi Peel The VI Peel is a painless, mild peel that is appropriate for all skin types and tones. It is made up of trichloroacetic acid, Retin-A, salicylic acid, phenol, and vitamin C and is widely used to treat hyperpigmentation and repair UV damage. Lactic peel A lactic peel is made from milk and is ideal for dry or sensitive skin. It balances the pH of the skin and exfoliates gently by dissolving dead skin cells. Glycolic peel Glycolic acid, which is used in glycolic peels, stimulates the synthesis of new collagen and elastin by targeting the skin's outer layer. It is frequently used to treat acne, acne scars, and to tighten pores. TCA peel A TCA peel, which is more harsh than a glycolic peel, contains trichloroacetic acid. It is commonly used to lighten skin pigmentation and smooth wrinkles. Phenol peel To address severe wrinkles and discolouration, a phenol peel penetrates the skin thoroughly. When compared to gentler peels, it typically necessitates a lengthy recovery period and may be unpleasant. What Are the Most Frequently Used Laser Treatments? Fraxel Laser Treatment The Fraxel Laser Treatment uses FDA-approved fractional laser technology to revitalize skin. This laser is best effective on acne scars and tiny wrinkles that are mild to moderate in severity. CO2 Laser Treatment The CO2 Laser Treatment uses pixelated carbon dioxide lasers to treat more severe skin issues like deep wrinkles and acne scars. In general, this laser is unsuccessful for treating skin redness. Erbium Laser The Erbium laser is a less invasive and gentler laser treatment than the CO2 laser. The laser increases collagen formation by penetrating the epidermis (the outer skin layer). It's commonly used to remove wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Which Of These Is the Best Skin Care Treatment? It all boils down to your skin type and concerns, in a nutshell. It can be difficult to determine the best course of action, therefore it is always advisable to visit with a dermatologist to discuss your concerns and treatment choices. Not all chemical peels and laser procedures are suited for people with darker skin tones. Are you unsure about your situation? When in doubt, always consult a dermatologist. THE MOST EFFECTIVE ACNE SCAR TREATMENT A chemical peel used to treat hyperpigmentation. Textural changes, such as atrophic or indented scars, respond better to laser skin treatments. A TCA chemical peel, on the other hand, can help with acne scars. Combination methods, which include laser, peels, subcision, and/or dermal fillers, are widely used. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IF THIS IS MY FIRST CHEMICAL PEEL/LASER TREATMENT? With chemical peels, expect some redness and peeling following, depending on the type of peel. Not every peel results in apparent peeling. Post-laser skin side effects may include redness, peeling, swelling, and bruising, depending on the laser used. If you use topical treatments, you should discontinue them a few days before the procedure. You may be advised to stop using retinoids, hydroxy acids, benzoyl peroxide, or other harsh, drying, and potentially irritating substances depending on the peel and laser. As a preventative step, patients with a history of cold sores may be given antiviral drugs. WILL A CHEMICAL PEEL OR A LASER TREATMENT BE APPROPRIATE FOR MY SKIN? If you have any of the following conditions, you should avoid chemical peels and laser treatments: - Active infections in the treatment regions - Will be exposed to sunlight after treatment - Have a history of keloids or hypertrophic scars. - A lack of enough post-treatment recuperation time. - Have a darker skin tone (this applies to certain types of chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments). Whether you choose a chemical peel or a laser treatment, there is a resurfacing skin option for you!

(**You don’t need to peel the limes and lemon if you own a high-quality juicer) Juice the lemon, limes, ginger, and grapefruits. Then, juice the pineapple. Pour over ice. Salud! (Cheers in Spanish for you non-Spanish speakers) What’s So Important about Vitamin C? Vitamin C is required for repairing and maintaining cells and bones – not to mention fighting off infections. It even lowers your cancer and cardiovascular disease risks. We need to continuously consume vitamin C rich foods – as our bodies don’t store vitamin C. http://bit.ly/1CJLF0i
Botox And Fillers For Men. How Different Is It Than Women's Anti-Aging?
Botox and dermal fillers make no gender discrimination. It is enticing to both men and women. Men's cosmetics and beauty treatments are becoming increasingly popular. From procedures and treatment areas to locating the proper dermatologist, here's what men really ought to know about dermal fillers and neurotoxins. Injectable Techniques for Men Injectable therapies for men and women differ in a variety of ways. They are based on biological distinctions in the aging process, the composition of muscle fibers in the face, and bone structure. Then there's the matter of skin quality to consider. Because men's skin is thicker, a more robust product can frequently be utilized. The perception of attractiveness has an impact on injectable procedures as well. Our society's judgment of what qualities are feminine or masculine is taken into account while planning injectable treatments. Men, for example, should avoid using filler on the lateral of the cheekbone like women do since it provides a more feminine impression. An arched brow, as well as a very high cheekbone or a small chin, is a typically feminine look, yet generalizations are not always the rule. You generally wouldn't want to generate those conventionally feminine characteristics unless that's the patient's starting bone structure. Also, don't disregard society opinions of wrinkles and fine lines. In women, injectables are routinely used to smooth the skin, although wrinkles are less of a concern in men. The ultimate goal is to restore men's facial angularity and reduce the look of exhaustion or tension, rather than to reduce wrinkles. The sort of product used is also influenced by this distinction in purpose. Certain dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, which can hold a lot of water, may not be appropriate for men, whereas Radiesse holds less water and produces better definition. The former is a HA filler, whereas the latter is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa). So, to achieve the best effects, it's all about quantity, quality, and the type of product you're using. The Benefits of Injectables for Men Fillers and neuromodulators are effective anti-aging treatments that can also be utilized to enhance and define one's appearance. Non-surgical injectables actually serve a vital purpose for guys who desire to rejuvenate their looks when you consider male anatomy. Men's hair is insufficient to conceal actual surgical scars. As a result, skillfully administered Botox and filler can be a strong tool for non-surgical rejuvenation. Neurotoxin Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are common neurotoxins used to soften the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. Because men without lines can appear excessively feminine and unnatural, it is necessary to decrease rather than eradicate these wrinkles. One of the first signs of aging in men is between the brows, where they acquire vertical lines called glabellar or '11' lines. These lines are created by frowning and squinting, and males are more likely than women to acquire deep creases here since their skin is thicker and heavier. Botox can assist to relax the'muscles of disapproval,' also known as the corrugator muscles in medicine, and smooth this area, preventing deep wrinkles from forming and taking up residence. While certain lines may be thought to be 'handsome,' others may communicate unwanted emotion. Men with glabellar lines are advised that they appear angry or disapproving when they are not. Most men seek neuromodulators such as Botox to open their eyes and decrease wrinkles. However, prudence is required. As a result, they do not appear to have had any treatment. Dermal Fillers Men choose to treat the under eye hollow or tear trough with filler. As we age, we all lose volume here, but the thicker quality of men's skin and the bone structure of the face in this area make volume loss more evident. What was the final outcome? Under the brow, there are deep shadows. This provides the impression of dark circles and weariness. What is the answer? A modest amount of dermal filler in this area helps to reduce shadows and gives them a more relaxed appearance. Men also seek to increase the definition of their chin and jawline, soften their nasolabial creases, and address volume loss in the lower cheekbones. The idea is to appear masculine and rejuvenated rather than faultless. If You Are Not Yet Ready For Injectables For guys, lasers are routinely utilized as a "gateway" technique. The Brilliant + Clear The Complete treatment is suitable for men who want to improve the appearance of fine lines and discolouration without having to undergo prolonged downtime. For the best outcomes, three 30-minute sessions spread out over three months are required. Most patients are able to resume normal activities right away, making it an excellent choice for individuals who prefer to keep out of the spotlight and avoid downtime. It's a fantastic approach to organically rejuvenate the skin by employing two different types of energy to build more collagen and level out the skin tone. Men's Injectables Upkeep Male patients are no different, since routine maintenance is an unavoidable component of any injectable therapy. Neurotoxin dissolves in four months, whereas filler might endure from six months to two years. The area of the face injected, as well as the type of filler used, influence the exact longevity. Men are less likely than women to come in for regular maintenance visits, thus longevity, or the lack thereof, might be an issue for some. On average, most men will come in twice a year, which is generally more than enough. Furthermore, while men and women might expect comparable outcomes in terms of how long injectable neurotoxin and filler persist, the amount of product needed to accomplish results varies. Men require nearly double the amount of product that women do.
