Ultimate Beard Grooming Advice

Any man who has a beard will tell you that they can be something of a mission to keep in order. Just growing a beard is not necessarily in itself a problem, but keeping it looking its best can often be much more challenging than you might suppose. If you have a beard, then you will probably be aware of this. And if you are thinking of growing one, it is helpful to know what might lie ahead for you. There is actually a lot to bear in mind when it comes to grooming a beard, and it is worth learning as much as you can as soon as you can. In this article, we are going to take you through the four main stages of beard care. Let’s take a look.

Trimming

First of all, you need to remember the importance of keeping on top of the length. An unruly beard is not quite so attractive as one which has been properly tamed, and that is why this first stage is so important. You need to make sure that you are trimming it on a regular basis. You might also want to consider shaving any areas where you don’t want hair at all – for example, around the bottom of the neck or above the cheekbones. In these cases, an electric shaver might be best. Take a look at Manly Matters for more on this subject.

Washing

You can often tell an unwashed beard from quite a distance, and needless to say it doesn’t often look very attractive. If you find yourself leaving your beard, or not washing it at all, you might end up with a beard which is slightly greasy or even unpleasantly itchy. To avoid this, make sure you wash it regularly. Basically, treat it the same as hair – that is, wash it just as often, and use shampoo and conditioner just the same. This will ensure that you keep your beard in the best condition possible.

Combing

You might not have thought of this side of things, but combing can prove to be surprisingly important in looking after a beard. After all, proper regular combing ensures that your beard hairs do not get too tangled, which in turn keeps it looking healthy and stops it from being itchy, one of the main annoyances of having a beard. Make sure to comb it once a day if necessary, otherwise at least twice a week. You might be surprised at the difference it can make.

Oils & Balms

Once all that is done, all that is left now is to use any oils and balms which you might find necessary to keep your beard hair in great condition. There are a great many oils and balms out there, and it is well worth spending some time trying them out and seeing if you can find a favourite. Once you find one which seems to work well with your own hair, make sure you stick with it. Finding the right oils and balms can really make a huge difference to how healthy your beard looks and feels.

Planning Fun Games For Family Events Or Parties.

I love poolside parties. If you have a swimming pool in your home, holding poolside parties is a great way to make full use of the swimming pool. Many people do not fully utilize their swimming pool. Poolside BBQ parties are usually held in the evening and some are also held in the day.

If you are planning on having a poolside party for adults or family event, a day party with water games included will be fun for those who love water. One great water game to consider is the water barrel or the water roller ball game. It is a safe and fun game. The water roller balls are inflatable and can be used in the swimming pool, lake or seaside. The participants can safely tumble around on the water within the water barrel or water roller ball without fear of nasty accidents or serious injuries. Older children can safely enjoy the game under proper adult supervision. There is a lot of active movement involved in this game, especially with the tumbling and balancing in the water barrel. It is an effective and a fun way to exercise.

Another fun game to consider is the bubble soccer or bubble football game. You will have a ball of a time with the bubble soccer or bubble football. Participants will be bouncing off their feet when they come in contact with one another and it is hilarious to watch the player struggling to get close to the ball. This is another fun way to exercise especially when the players struggle to get back on their feet with their bubble soccer suits when they are knocked off balance by their opponents.

Bubble soccer or bubble football game can be played outdoor or indoor. The inflatable bubble soccer or football suits are light and conveniently transported from place to place. These inflatable water barrel, water roller balls and bubble soccer balls can be purchased online. For the various products available and their prices, you can check online or you can go to Inflatable-zone.com to start with.

What is the greatest video game cover ever created?

Me and my sister grew playing video games and the way we choose the video disc was where in the cover. Yes! actually, back in the 90’s Nintendo, Japanese gaming company, produces a lot of games to choose from with for your family computer and my sister and I are too thrilled to try them all but we cant as we just have limited budget to spend at times hence we both decided to just pick the game which has the best game cover as we are sure that the cover itself plays a big marketing strategy to sell the item or game they trying to offer.

So the question is..

How many times have you been interested in playing a game thanks to the cover art catching your eye?

With hundreds, if not thousands, of titles to choose from depending on which console you own, many publishers and developers will take their time creating a cover for their video game so that it grabs the attention and hopefully leads to a gamer choosing that title over the many others on a store shelf.

To find out which is the greatest video game cover ever created, managed print specialist United Carlton has set out this shortlist of five standout examples. Check out their picks then head onto their Twitter page to let them know which one you believe to be the best, or if you have any favourites that we haven’t covered.

Heavy Rain

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Heavy-Rain-PS3/dp/B002BWONF8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714153&sr=8-2&keywords=heavy+rain)

The cover of Heavy Rain does an excellent job of making the art of origami look incredibly dramatic. What’s particularly great about this is that you will actually have to play the game to grasp the meaning behind the cover’s image.

With the origami figure slowly being destroyed by the pouring rain, the cover also fits perfectly with the game’s dark, moody and unusual tone and visual style.

Limbo

(Cover art can be seen here: http://www.game.co.uk/en/limbo-171641)

Twisted, terrifying, dark, minimalist and unsettling are all words that can be used to describe the 2010 Indie fan favourite game Limbo.

The game’s cover art is reflective of all of these words too, with the black-and-white image of a faceless child wandering into the light having a creepy tone to it but also one which makes you want to explore just what this puzzle game is about.

Borderlands

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/2K-Games-Borderlands-Xbox-360/dp/B0026IBHHY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714175&sr=8-2&keywords=borderlands)

How do you make your IP stand out when it’s going up against sure-fire hits like Halo 3: ODST and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2? When it comes to Gearbox Software and the original Borderlands game, the answer was simple: create a cover that catches the eye and is rather controversial.

Instead of featuring the game’s protagonist, the cover featured a bandit from the RPG shooter pretending to shoot himself in the head along with a glimpse into the game being the splatter. All dressed up in a cartoon style complete with heavy cell shading to reflect the game’s unique art direction.

Ico

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-ICO/dp/B00005UJSY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714211&sr=8-2&keywords=ico)

Boy meets girl is one of the most traditional stories that you can think of, though Ico did a fine job of wrapping this theme up in a soft-spoken and artistic game.

The cover of Ico works perfectly in that it demonstrates that this puzzle game is doing something that is different from the norm, while also being as minimalistic as the open space that games get to explore once the disc loads.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

(Cover art can be seen here: http://www.game.co.uk/en/uncharted-2-among-thieves-38971)

Sometimes a game cover creates itself from the action that you discover by actually playing the game. This is certainly the case for the cover of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Anyone who has played this pulsating action game is sure to remember the heart-pounding mission of trying to escape a derailed train, so the cover is effective in providing a glimpse about the thrilling ride you have waiting for you.

 photo reebok-hall-of-fame-usa-collection-1_zpsrluawqdh.png

I loved all the collaborative items that these well known brands and labels are worked together with. Actually, these items where pretty rare and sometimes these are the most expensive to have because it’s like you’re buying off the two brands in one item at the same time, especially those high-end brands which made them collaborative items an limited edition which these fashion enthusiasts and icons are dying to have for.

But overall these collection is a must watch and wait as am sure that they gonna hit the market, soon as it gets released..

Three Reasons It Is Important to Have a Primary Care Physician

 photo 46401709_Subscription_S_zpszxbi1w2w.jpg

Often people ignore the value of a primary care physician for their health, but the truth of the matter is that this type of doctor is fundamental to good health care. There are many good reasons for this, and the following are only a few of the most notable.

A general practitioner is your first priority for good health

Although a specialist is important for many ailments, the truth is that a general practitioner is more able to know when and which specialist you should see. Sometimes people complain that their insurance will not cover the cost of a specialist without a referral from another doctor, and in some instances, this may mean they need to see a general practitioner. However, insurance companies know the value of the opinion of a general practitioner. It is this type of doctor that knows when you need specialized care and when you do not. If you were to see a specialist first, it is the specialist that may not be able to treat you properly. Without first knowing your entire medical history, a specialist can easily misdiagnose you or not provide all of the treatment needed.

A primary care physician knows you best

When you go to a single doctor for all of your basic health care needs, this doctor will have your entire medical history, and if you have been going to the same doctor for a long time, they will not only have recent test results, but they will also have experience in treating you. A doctor can know how to properly diagnose a patient, but when he or she knows the patient, they are better able to offer effective treatments. From experience, they will know what their patient is likely to do when given certain treatment options. How much they are likely to do on their own to contribute to their recovery. Examples include such things as diet and exercise.

They help to prevent trips to the emergency room

When you have a primary doctor that you see for check-ups and any complaints you may have between check-ups, you will be given advice on what to do to keep yourself healthy.
Not only will you know what you need to do to stay healthy, but any ongoing medical issues that require medication, you will have a prescription for. In addition, seeing your doctor on a regular basis will increase the likelihood of catching a medical issue before it develops into a situation that requires emergency medical attention.

There is certainly a primary care physician Spring TX office near you, so if you don’t have one now, you should look for one as soon as possible. Your health should be a top priority in your life.

Easy and Affordable Bathroom Upgrades

 photo sfnt-axor-hansgrohe-critterio-993x400_zpsr9la1wgu.jpg

The living room and the bedroom aren’t the only rooms in the house that needs attention. The bathroom should also look nice and comfortable. If you have a chaotic and cluttered bathroom, there’re plenty of simple upgrades that’ll make an unimpressive bathroom feel brand new. Replace an old, rusty faucet with Phylrich faucets that’re elegant, luxurious, functional, and of top-notch quality. Turn an unused nightstand into storage for small towels, toiletries, makeup, and hair tools. You can also make a vintage inspired towel rack that’ll be perfect for hanging towels. Another simple upgrade is to install a pedestal sink that’s not only elegant but is also a space saver.

A bath and kitchen tile is another easy upgrade. A freshly tiled floor can brighten your bathroom and your mood and wouldn’t put a hole in your pocket if you do the job yourself. A stylish vintage dresser vanity complete with modern plumbing will definitely look good in your bathroom. If you have a bathtub that lacks wide ledges, hang a multilevel fruit basket for additional storage and space. For a feeling of peace, put a wall paper or paint the walls with a calming color like sky blue or baby pink. There should also be scented candles and flowers around the bathroom.

Shop for bathroom fixtures, kitchen, and other consumer-friendly products of superior quality at PlumbTile.

Vitamin D: Everything you need to know

Men’s these days are pretty busy to think about their total whole being. I meant, they dont prioritized their heath at all but through this post you can merely understand on how important of supplementing was that can make you think that you should act now and have all the nutrients available that your body mostly need, most especially the vitamin D that you can learn more here: https://www.multivits.co.uk/.

 photo earth-day-nourish-bowl-mckel-hill-nutrition-stripped-1_zpsttqs3a8w.jpg

When it comes to our health, it seems like we’re continually bombarded with new guidelines. A recent government report has offered some new guidelines about the amount of vitamin D we should consume on a daily basis.

As a general rule, everyone — adults and children over the age of one alike — should consume 10 micrograms of vitamin D every day. But why? Here, vitamin D supplement retailer, Pharma Nord, explains what the vitamin does and why it’s so important.

 photo vitamindpreventsprostatecancergrowth_zpsjhe6cx6h.png

What does vitamin D do?

Vitamin D is important as it helps the body absorb calcium and phosphate from our diet. Because calcium and phosphate are essential for maintaining healthy bones, teeth and muscles, it’s vital that we keep vitamin D at the optimum level.

We get the majority of our vitamin D through exposure to direct sunlight. However, some does come from our diet and is found in oily fish, red meat and eggs.

Because we rely on sunlight predominantly for vitamin D, it’s often difficult to get the amount that we require during autumn and winter. This is because sunlight doesn’t contain enough UVB radiation between October and early March in the UK. Instead, many people take supplements or change their diet to try and up their vitamin intake and prevent a deficiency occurring.

What happens if you don’t get enough vitamin D?

If your levels of vitamin D drop too low, you will have a deficiency. In children, low levels of vitamin D can cause rickets, a condition that can cause bone deformities as a result of soft, weak bones. Common symptoms of this are bone pain, poor growth, bowed legs, curvature of the spine and thickened ankles, wrists and knees.

In adults, the condition is called osteomalacia and causes muscle and bone pain, as well as small fractures in some cases.

Who does vitamin D deficiencies effect?

Some people are more at risk of vitamin D deficiencies than others. Those at greater risk include babies from birth to one year old, children aged between one and four and people who aren’t exposed to the sun regularly. This may be because they have little or no mobility or cover their skin while outdoors.

Will supplements help?

Public health officials have recommended that everyone considers taking vitamin D supplements in autumn and winter to boost their vitamin D levels.

Your home might be under attack! How CCTV can help defend it.

Good news , folks! because the best way to secure your home and even your kids are now here. Try to check Umix CCTV for you to see on how awesome it’s features are  and how convenient this to use.

 photo umix_zpsir5kyzdr.jpg

Between April 2015 and March 2016, there were 375,034 cases of burglary in the UK.

In a 2000 Home Office study, the average burglary cost £2,300. Adjusted for inflation, this figure now sits at £3,600. With smaller, easily stolen items now littering the average home thanks to technological advancements, it’s possible to add even more to this figure.  And, if a burglar steals your car keys and drives off with your vehicle, this cost could soar further.

So how do you protect yourself? Aside from locking doors and windows and making sure you don’t leave your bins or anything climbable near the upper levels of your property, you could try installing CCTV, such as an IP camera from UMIX.

Is home CCTV worth it?

CCTV systems are an excellent deterrent for home protection – a study by the University of Leicester found that they are the single biggest deterrent in pre-planned crime. This means that burglars who are selecting their targets are less likely to choose your home for their theft.

The same study also found that when CCTV owners display warning signs, burglars may be less likely to attempt theft as they know the homeowner is clued up about crime and has taken steps to prevent it.

CCTV also increases the likelihood of catching offenders in the act, which can result in apprehension and therefore, deterrence. This was the case in April this year, when two men were arrested in South Gloucestershire after being caught on CCTV.  Afterwards, police stressed the usefulness of community intelligence and public support in catching criminals.

Not convinced? A chilling case came to light in 2015 when Lisa MacKenzie’s CCTV footage went viral after she fitted a camera to her property after a previous break in attempt, capturing a would-be intruder trying to enter her home.

The camera system also came with CCTV warning signs, which must be fitted by law. These, the police said, may well have deterred the man’s attempts to break in.

So, if you want to protect your property by deterring burglars or catch them in the act, installing a home CCTV system is a great way to help protect the property. Make sure you also have burglar alarms, strong locks and good lighting, as police say these factors are very important for home security.

What about dummy cameras? Don’t rely on a dummy security camera. They may deter some thieves, but experienced burglars can spot the difference. Also, if the burglar is not deterred and goes ahead with the theft, you won’t have any video evidence like a real CCTV system provides.

Residential CCTV Law

If you’ve decided to fit a CCTV system, you’ll need to know the rules to avoid breaching privacy law – so be aware before you install one.

  • CCTV systems can be installed as part of an individual’s right to protect their property – but must reasonably respect the privacy of others.
  • This means considering whether your camera looks into neighbouring properties or public pavements – as people can complain to the police or the Surveillance Camera Commissioner if you do so.
  • Inform your neighbours about your system and put up a notice to let people know a CCTV system is in place.
  • Regularly delete any recordings that are not vital for your property’s protection.

With a proper knowledge of the law and a CCTV system fitted to your home, you can help deter thieves and live a burglar-free life. Worried about the cost? For most people, CCTV is worth the investment to avoid losing out on thousands of pounds worth of goods.

Shopping For the Best Riding Gear

 photo motor_zpsas9ddglw.jpg

Taking safety precautions when riding a motorcycle is important. The right helmet, knee and elbow protectors, and leather suits should be worn. Another function of clothing for motorcyclists is to make sure that your body doesn’t get too cold or too hot. The most important aspect of a helmet is its fit. Shop at a trusted store that specializes in helmets and make sure that it fits and is comfortable to wear. The helmet should fit rather tightly when you try it for the first time and when you shake your head, the helmet shouldn’t move around.

The second thing that should be well protected are your hands that’s why wearing well-fitted gloves is a must. Buy gloves that allow you to feel the handlebars very well and protect against sliding. Leather gloves should be worn during warm weather while gloves with Goretex lining should be worn in cold weather to keep your hands dry. A glove with a separate inner glove made from Windstopper outbound link keeps your hands warmer (if you really want warm hands) compared to those with a stitched in bulky liner. Another important motorcycle clothing is a leather suit. Make sure that it fits perfectly, especially when you’re sitting.
