1. Sex balances hormones.
Acne is a manifestation of an internal imbalance that is most often
routed in a hormonal imbalance, specifically in the imbalance of sex
hormones such as testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. Sex balances
your hormone levels, which may help in keeping your skin clearer.

solutions in the U.S and global marketplace. According to Dr. Agnes,
scientists have found that cocoa can contain more antioxidants per cup
than red wine or green tea.
There is also data suggesting that regular eating (or drinking) of
dark chocolate without sugar (or strong dark chocolate-based cocoa
[without sugar]) can calm skin that’s been irritated by sun exposure,
and in general, improve skin texture, hydration and appearance. Cocoa
butter is actually a familiar additive to many cosmetic products such as
body butters, creams or scrubs.
She notes that, in general, chocolate and chocolate-based products
are good natural choices to improve your skin. It will act as a
moisturizer (makes skin smoother and more supple); calm irritated, dry
skin; promote rejuvenation from inside out and help detoxification.

Appetizer: Fresh Oysters on half a shell, lemon wedges; arrange on crushed ice
Oysters are very rich in zinc, which is essential for testosterone
production and the maintenance of healthy sperm. Even though women have
far less testosterone than men, it plays a key part in the female libido
as well. Oysters also boost dopamine, a hormone, which results in
increased libido in both men and women.
Main Course: Broiled trout or wild salmon; stir-fry asparagus with crushed garlic; avocado salad.
Trout and wild salmon are high in Omega-3, which will certainly increase
overall health and sexual stamina, improve mood and memory and of
course bring a healthy glow to your skin. Asparagus has plenty of
Vitamin B that helps increase production of histamine. Histamine is
important for healthy sex drive for both men and women. Garlic contains
Allicin, a compound credited with increasing blood flow to the sexual
organs. Some experts believe that garlic is a very powerful
aphrodisiac–but it doesn’t work overnight, so you will need to make it a
part of your daily diet to see the real effects. Avocado is rich in
folic acid for increased energy, and its healthy fats help many body
functions. It also contains Vitamin B6, which is instrumental in the
production of androgens (male hormones) that are so important for both
women and men in supporting their sex drive.

for two perhaps? You’re excited, ready to go and then, you look in the
mirror and a pimple rudely popped up on your face in a most noticeable
place. A normal reaction is to pop it —but don’t do it! It will only

acne scar. Here is what you can do!

So you have a hot date planned? You’re unbelievably excited, and
then, you look in the mirror and a pimple rudely popped up on your face
in a most noticeable place. For most of us, we not only want to jump in
bed and hide under the covers until the zit disappears, but we want to
pop it. Both “solutions” actually won’t help at all!
Popping the pimple will not “kill it” but rather “kills” more of your
skin cells by inviting more bacteria in and facilitating more
inflammation. Also, the more concentrated dead skin cells means more
visible acne marks. Find out how to get rid of that baby in an effective
