How to Get a Good Facial

A facial can be one of the most relaxing things you can do for your face, or it can be a nightmare that results in breakouts and even infections. If you have just started shopping for a facialist, or you've had a negative experience and are considering another try, here are a few tips to help protect your skin and your experience.

Spa's Hygiene: Don't be afraid to check out the entire salon and ask questions. Any salon or spa that does facials should be spotless clean, not just the area where facials are performed, but the entire place. If it isn't, beware. Anyone who will be exposing your sensitive skin to treatments should be serious about cleanliness. Let the cleanliness and hygiene of those working in the salon or spa be your first indication as to whether or not you want to trust your face to them.

Therapist Consultations: You know you'll get a good facial if the therapist starts with a thorough consultation to discuss your concerns and determine your skin's needs. The correct facial prescription is crucial so that you walk out with brighter, more evenly toned skin.

Keep in mind that you should be totally honest when the therapist asks about your regular home skincare routine. Don't be embarrassed to admit you don't remove your make-up before sleeping. The facialist should ask you if you are using any products or medication that may affect what she uses. Be sure she knows if you're using retinol, vitamin C or any prescription drugs which may cause skin irritation. Being honest helps build a picture of what you're doing at home that makes your skin look the way it does.Also avoid facial altogether if you have a skin disease such as cystic acne or rosacea. Instead see a dermatologist for any treatments you may want to try.

During your facial treatment, you may experience some tingle as some products used in the procedure are actively changing your skin, but your facialist will let you know if this Sensation is normal. Stress and dehydration can make any product feel uncomfortable.

If you had a night out the previous day, your skin PH will have changes and the skin will try to drink up moisture too quickly. If you are stressed, the release of natural histamines in the body can make your skin react to facial products. However, keep in mind the fact that nothing about a facial should be painful so if any part of your treatment hurts feel free to ask the facialist to ease up.

After having a facial, here is how to make the results last:
  • Avoid wearing make-up on the same day you've had facial
  • For the next two days, stay out of the sun.
  • Only do a basic cleanse and moisturise your face.
  • For a lovely face, have a facial done at least once a month. This is how long it takes for the dead skin cells to be shed and for new skin cells to come to the surface.
A good facial is all you need for beautiful skin. You'll look great, with or without make-up if you look after your skin with regular preventative treatments.

How farmers can double their bean yield production

"As Jack slept, the beans germinated in the soil, and by morning a big beanstalk grew in their place. When Jack saw the great beanstalk, he immediately decided to climb..." This is a classic scenario of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' fairy tale. The same is true for Kenya's bean variety that climbs and spreads on sticks producing double the yield of local varieties.

Due to subdivision of land in Kenya, farmers are not able to produce enough beans to feed the 38.6 million people living in Kenya.This is mainly due to shrinking land sizes. This is the reason why high yielding varieties of beans that only need a small area to grow has been developed. These new varieties of beans require support with stakes (sticks) to climb on when they are growing.

The beans can grow up to a height of 3.5 meters. The long stems of this variety of beans enable it to produce more pods as compared to the normal bean varieties (bush bean).   With good management climbing beans can produce u…

Herbal Plants used for Alternative Medicine with no side effect

In a sad note, most indigenous informants keep herbal knowledge, especially the actual preparation methods, strictly secret. Luckily, an aged medicine man from Gatundu in Central Kenya, whose great knowledge of medicinal plants facilitated the write-up of this article.
In part one of this article, plants are grouped according to their medicinal use. According to the aged medicine man, simply boil the leaves, roots or the bark; add honey or milk or soup to sweeten the concoction. He recommends taking a glass in the morning and in the evening for preventive measures. 
He cautions on their medicinal uses which should be considered as neither preparation methods nor dosage prescription are provided. This is a topic that would require much more time and I have decided to leave it for part two of this article.
