What Men Say About Your Lisptick Color

Most women like to wear lipstick because it adds color, protection and beauty to the lips. There are many varieties of lipstick available in the market. But don’t you know that men have something to say about the colors of your lipstick and what does it mean to them?

Classic Red - It means “that’s a look-at-me color”. It also an “I-want-attention kind of color.  That is why when you’re at the bar looking for some people to meet it can work as a beacon to catch attention to men.

Hot Pink – It’s more punk, rock star, adventurous. It says you’re not afraid of a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll.

Dark Purple/burgundy – It implies that she is not afraid to take risks, that she is edgy and could be challenging in a good way but not that she has a dark side but it implies that she is different.

Neutral – When you wear lipstick with the same color of your skin, you look like a corpse, it’s upsetting.

Bright Orange – It makes men think that she’s got a spicy personality and is probably a lot of fun. It gives a very confident outlook, not afraid to try something that’s different.

Your Handshake Determines Your Health Condition

A new research finds that simple handshake gesture could determine the health condition of a person like if you want to know if you have the risk for dementia and stroke. Surprisingly, the firmness in your handshake not only shows the sign of confidence, according to doctors it may be a barometer of your health too. The researchers conducted to 2,500 men and women in which they presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 64th Annual Meeting and linked the risk of dementia and stroke to how strong their handshakes were at the beginning of the study. If you have a stronger grip it was associated with a 42% lower risk of stroke in people over age 65 compared with other study participants with flimsier grasps. What does it mean? And what’s the connection? According to Dr. Erica Camargo of the Boston Medical Center that vascular problems in the brain manifest themselves in a wide variety of ways. The suspicion is that if your grip is particularly weak, it could be a sign that your overall cardiovascular health isn’t in the best shape.

How to Ptotect Yourself From Flu Virus

It’s been a week already that I experienced dry coughing, cold sweats, sore throat, muscle pain and light fever which I suspected to be an influenza or flu. So I decided to have checked by a doctor and she diagnosed it as flu. Flu is a respiratory illness that is caused by a virus. It is highly contagious and is usually spread by the coughs and sneezes of a person who is infected. You can catch up flu by touching an infected person through shaking of hands. For adults it can be contagious one day before getting symptoms and up to seven days after becoming ill which means that you can spread the flu virus before you even know you are infected. Below are the symptoms of influenza.
1.      high temperature
2.      cold sweats (shivers)
3.      headache
4.      aching joints, aching limbs
5.      fatigue
6.      gastro intestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
These symptoms may linger for about a week. The feeling of tiredness and gloom can continue for several weeks. If you don’t take the right precautions, most probably you will catch the flu virus. Getting vaccinated could be the best defense in order to be protected. Other way to fight flu virus is to strengthen your immune system by eating healthy foods, exercising at least four days in a week and sleeping for at least 8 hours a night. And also, wash your hands with warm water and soap every time you shake hands or touch a surface that may be contaminated with flu virus. That is why you always carry an alcohol based sanitizer, and don’t touch your mouth, eyes or nose without washing your hands first.
