Health Tips Every Woman Should Use
There are so many things that revolve around health. Some women tend to think that they are healthy just because they are not overweight. However, health goes beyond the weight and there are things that every woman needs to do to remain healthy and fit. Health can play a huge role on how energetic and joyous you feel and it can also make a huge difference to how you look and feel about yourself.
1. Give more attention to your well-being. Women generally have plenty of responsibilities, but it is important to remember your health and take care of it as well. You should ensure that you exercise, eat right and enjoy enough sleep. Time might seem too precious to have time for this, but when you have a schedule in place, you can manage to do it all.
2. Fight off the stereotypes. If there is one thing that can bring a woman down and promote bad habits that can ruin health, then it is dealing with stereotypes and going through abuse, violence, discrimination and inequality. If you are facing any of these damaging issues at your workplace or home, make a point to stand your ground and defend your rights. You can actually make a bold move to move away or cut your connections with such people who do not give you peace.
3. Keep your physical and mental health in check. Alcoholism, anxiety, depression and stress are some of the issues that can get real serious in women. Get help as soon as any of them start disturbing you to keep off the greater risks they come with. A health care provider can guide you through such issues and make recommendations that will help bounce you back to good health.
4. Find out about all health issues that common in females. They include things such as UTIs, incontinence, overactive bladder, joint pains and others. Ensure that you know everything about health as far as family history goes and make a point of having regular checks just to get assurance that all is well. Such checks can help manage underlying issues before they come out in full force. It also helps to know your risks for stroke and heart disease because women tend to be at higher risks.
5. Keep your weight healthy. Maintaining a healthy weight is very important in keeping your health and general well-being in check. Remember that women have less muscle but more fats compared to men, hence you should keep your calories in check. Keep your BMI within the right healthy range, engage in physical activities and exercise and always eat a balanced diet. There are so many healthy foods low in calorie that you can still enjoy and maintain a healthy weight.
6. Remember your reproductive health. Sexual health is usually neglected yet it plays an important role in your overall health. Taking care of it is one of the best ways of how to stay healthy. Talk to your healthcare provider about prevention of STDs, safe sex and even screening procedures that can help you out. Reproduction covers female cancers, menstruation, contraception, pregnancy and breastfeeding, breast health, menopause and infertility.

Stay Away From THE SUN:
Although we can’t deny the benefits of the sun’s Vitamin D, in addition it gives us an amazing tan that we’ve been waiting for the summer to get it, but the UV rays of the sun are harmful for our skin & it might cause skin cancer & it is one of the main reasons for dark spots, age spots & freckles. So try to avoid the sun from 10 PM till 4 PM, the sun is so strong at that time & it damages the skin texture, Make sure that you apply a 50+ SPF every morning & keep it in your purse in case you want to apply it again during the day, even if you are walking on the street going to lunch or coming back home from work, you need to put SPF to protect your skin. although using moisturiser cream in the morning is not a bad idea.
Niacinamide or as commonly used as Vitamin B3, Niacinamide is a great lightening and whitening agent that works by reducing melanin in the skin and increasing collagen, which results in a more bright and radiant looking skin, also, it reduces the look of dark spots and illuminates and evens skin tone.

Also, you can add it to your diet by eating More Fish, Salmon, Tuna, Chicken & turkey, & in veggies, lentils, lima beans and peanuts.
Laugh out Loud:
Who said that LOL can’t help the skin to heal & make it look healthier, in fact laughing & being happy is the best remedy for you & your skin. Laughing moves facial muscles, so why not Laugh, it’s free! Just think of it when you are stressed & worried your skin becomes worn-out, wrinkles & pimples starts to appear!
So RELAX! Get the stress out of your life, who needs stress to keep things going? No one wants to be stressed out, we all have our problems & we will always face things in life that doesn’t go the way we want, but if you want to go on and have a healthy life, you will need to keep the stress & negative vibes behind you no matter what hard your life circumstances are.

Do some physical activities, lift your legs up when you come back from work, have a walk with a friend, or a walk in the park, watch your favorite comedy show, watch the sky & let you mind wander! Try to get enough sleep from 6-7 hours per day, & most of all try to enjoy life and live each moment as it is.
Honey & Yogurt:
Honey is a great moisturiser & lightening agent, it has Anti bacterial properties & helps to get rid of acne scars, you can apply pure honey on your face & leave it for 15 minutes, do it at least once per week.
The Lactic acid in yogurt has whitening effects, & it simply works by applying plain yogurt on your skin for 5 minutes then wash it with warm water, once or twice per week & you will get a whiter & lighter skin, Yogurt is a great agent for skin whitening.
And in case you end up preparing more than you can use, you can always eat the rest, it’s healthy and tastes really good.
Aloe Vera Gel:
When it comes to Aloe Vera, I can call it a magic plant! It has astonishing & marvellous properties for the skin & body. Aloe vera improves hyperpigmentation and restores the skin natural colour. Hyper-pigmentation is one of the main causes of uneven skin tone.
It will rejuvenate skin cells and reconstruct broken skin, it also lightens dark spots & fade age spots. Since it is not easy for all of to find the plant & cut the gel to put it on your face, you can get those bottles of Aloe Vera gel from Any natural store or pharmacy, make sure the ingredients is only aloe vera gel & no chemicals added to it.
Simply, put the gel on your face & leave it from 15-30 minutes, then wash it with warm water, do this process twice per week or every other night.
Tumeric Mask for dark spots:
Untraditional, but worth a try. Tumeric is a yellow powder that has been used in cooking rice, but it has an amazing effect to help getting rid of dark spots, it has Antiseptic & anti-bacterial properties & it brightens the skin. You only need one spoon of turmeric with some water to form a paste, and put it on affected areas, don’t put it on your whole face because it will dry your skin. Do that every night & you will notice that the dark spots are getting lighter gradually.
Drink A lot Of Water:
I personally drink 4 cups of warm water when I wake up in the morning, it improves my skin & keeps it hydrated.Water is essential for Life, about 70% of Human body is water, so drinking water is vital to maintain a healthy lifestyle & most of all a healthy skin!
Water is very important to eliminate the toxins from the body, hydrates & purify the skin, you should drink at least 8 cups of water per day, if you find it so hard and you don’t like to drink a lot of water, you can put some lemon slices to give it a good taste, & to motivate you more you can do this amazing water challenge & put it a reminder on your phone.
Keep Your Skin Hydrated:
Make sure you make you keep your skin hydrated and moisturized all the time by using a skin moisturizer cream every morning & before you sleep, hydrated skin is a healthy skin, so try to choose a whitening or lightening moisturizer cream, so you get light, even and hydrated skin.
Wash your face everyday with cold water, it refreshes & lifts the skin.
Make sure to clean the make up every night before you sleep, makeup is a must for any girl of us, but sleeping with makeup will harm your skin & prevents it from breathing at night.
So make sure you remove all foundation, eyeliner, mascara & lipstick before going to bed no matter how exhausted you are or how hard you partied.
The formula that improves brain health is the same as that for the body. There is nothing more basic and simple than feeding on whole grains, green leafy vegetables and fruits.
Whole Grain Foods
Truly, not very many foods do compare with a hearty whole grain bread by Liesbeth Smit. Besides the unsaturated fats, this bread is loaded with good carbohydrates, protein and fiber from 4 different types of whole grain flour: buckwheat, barley, rye and wheat; 3 types of seeds: flax seeds, sunflower, pumpkin and 2 other ingredients like rolled oats and wheat bran.
Since there are no hard and fast rules in making this bread, why not replace familiar grains with some ancient heritage ones for novelty and variety in your diet at the same time?
For example, the most nutritious fonio grain is rich in important amino acids not found in wheat, and can help synthesize protein. Moreover, its low sugar content makes it an ideal food for people with diabetes.
On the other hand, sorghum is very much like wheat; and can be baked into breads. It contains mostly carbohydrates and some protein but has more vitamin B than maize.
Then there is teff with many nutritional feathers in its cap: high mineral content, complete food in essential amino acids, and a great source of carbohydrates and fiber.
Green Leafy Vegetables
In general, all vegetables and fruits have flavonoids and carotenoids which are highly efficient antioxidants. Dark green leafy vegetables, for example, are good sources of vitamin E, and folate that helps break down an amino acid responsible for brain shrinkage. Leafy greens also contain essential amino acids and are a great source of vitamin K, which enhances cognitive function and improves brainpower.
Notably,villagers living in remote Asian regions live off wild leafy vegetables and are none the worse for it. For instance, Shiri villagers of Cheju Island, South Korea gather 24 species of wild leafy vegetables daily for food; while those in Medak district of Andhra Pradesh, India, are kept alive by 79 species of uncultivated leafy greens.
It is clear the Asian urban menu is inextricable from leafy greens. For example, leafy green savories include Thull’s morogo leaf pie and Chuang Shu Chih’s spinach pancake, the Aubuchon family’s baked mushroom grits with Chinese spinach and Malcolm Riley’s young pumpkin leaves in ground peanut.
Further, leafy greens paired with noodles have remained the same all these years: wonton noodle soup with flowering Chinese cabbage and flat flour ban mian noodle with shredded potato leaves. Besides, Madame Lee-Chen’s penchant for using blanched greens like Tientsin cabbage leaves, mustard leaves, and stalks of flowering white cabbage leaves as garnish shows a connection between food choices and health.
However, the only recipe for leafy greens from Helen Clucas’ visit to rural China is white cabbage seasoned with ginger. This may be due to the fact that leafy greens are rarely served to guests.
Fruits: Avocado and Safou
As it is, the natural sugars of fruits can stimulate your brain. For instance, avocados improve blood and oxygen flow to your brain, suggests a website of the Villanova University. In addition, healthy unsaturated fats in avocados help keep your brain cell membranes flexible, according to Kansas State University. Lastly, as a rich source of the antioxidant vitamin E, this fruit can lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s, as research by Morris, suggests.
Nevertheless, the avocado has found a new competitor in safou or butterfruit, a tropical African forest fruit, which is a combination of avocado proteins, and the vitamins and minerals of an olive. It protects your brain with abundant powerful antioxidants like Vitamins A and C from damage by free radicals. More importantly, its store of magnesium boosts the functions of the nerves and enhances brain health.
Thus, there is no mystery surrounding the best brain foods; in fact, the lack of it, makes you think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.
Feeding plants leads naturally to an interest in trees; just as wholesome home feeding, to whole foods, natural remedies and a plant-based diet. This briefly encapsulates the natural world of Kez Sze, author, publisher and researcher.
