Everyone wants great looking skin—especially those who live in cold climates like Minnesota, where winters are long and bitterly cold. Cold weather can be harsh on your skin and leave behind skin that is itchy, dry and filled with blotches. However, there are ways to keep your skin looking great.
Protect Your Skin with Sunscreen
One way to keep your skin young and fresh is by using sunscreen. Even on cloudy days, experts advise using sunscreen because almost 80% of the sun’s rays can still reach your skin. Another way to keep your skin looking great is to use a moisturizer twice a day and change the moisturizer according to the seasons. Use a thicker moisturizer when the temperature is extremely cold and a thinner one when temperatures are milder.
Add Exercise, Diet and Fresh Air!
Another way to keep your skin fresh and young is to avoid using hot water on your skin—especially when taking a shower or bath. And, by lowering your heating system, you can keep more moisture on your face. Exercising is another great way to keep your skin looking great because exercise increases your circulation and takes nourishment from foods that you eat, and transfers them directly to your skin. Eating fish is still another way to keep your skin moist and youthful looking. The omega 3 fatty acids in fish revitalize and strengthen the skin. Using a humidifier in your home also helps because it puts back moisture into the air.
Exfoliating one’s skin also helps to keep skin smooth and prevents dry patches from forming. In addition, check out permanent dermal fillers for a more youthful looking skin.
Are you looking for the best sport team? The ideal name for your fantasy sports team can intimidate your opponents, giving you an advantage before your players even set foot on the field. The right name demonstrates your superior knowledge and ability to think. This puts your fantasy opponents on defense from the start and we all know we need our offense to score our points. The key is to be clever without being confusing. A clever name only works if your opponents understand what you are saying. Avoid higher level thought processes. For example anything involving a math equation or scientific principles should be avoided at all costs. I have made the mistake of being too intellectual. My fantasy football team was named Dante’s Infernos and I was labeled the league nerd within moments. This does not strike fear into the heart of your opponents. Who fears a nerd? Another mistake to avoid is naming the team after a personal favorite college or pro team. I love the Iowa Hawkeyes but the name is neither clever nor intimidating. It only displays your unoriginality to the rest of the league. Instead of using your favorite team name, mock a rival’s name.
Stick with pop culture and most players will comprehend your team’s name. I like to use commercials, television, and movies. Almost everyone has some exposure to these mediums. One name I have used before was Gaga Monster Inc. Everyone knew who I was talking about and some expressed their jealousy over my obviously superior name. A great name can be concocted if your turn a television show or movie title into some sport related name. I turned Snakes on a Plane in to “Snakes break the Plane.” Not my best work but it displays my point of combining sports related terminology and elements of pop culture. If I can keep an opponent’s mind on their name versus my team’s name and off of their lineups, I have already won the first battle.
It is very vital that you know what team you need to idolize for! Make sure that you know where to find it.
