  • Guyside: Do you have recovery time covered in your exercise?

    Bob LeDrew
    19 Nov 2014 | 7:40 am
    Yoga. How hard can that be, right? Just a bunch women accessorizing and lying around on mats, right? Sitting on a mat? How hard could that be? Uh-uh. As I type this, my large thigh muscles are complaining, and my abdominal muscles are providing harmony vocals. All this after an “ambitious” session of Kundalini yoga on Monday. As in so many instances, my pain is my fault, for two reasons: I have had a fairly indolent fall, with not nearly the same level of activity — yoga or otherwise — that I might expect normally. Being reasonably competitive and interested in seeing what others were…

    Aging skin. It’s worth an occasional sigh, right? After all, at the end of the day, unless you are spending major dollars on a few nips and a few tucks and some filler and peels, well, you have to give into it. Or do you? The American Academy of Dermatology has issued a few wonderful tips on taking care of your skin in your 40s and 50s. I thought that I would devote today’s post to things you can do to promote good skin care: Protect your skin from the sun. Oh, my goodness; this should be a given at any age. With the surge in products to provide a healthy glow, there is absolutely…

    12 Nov 2014 | 8:13 am
    I’m not a father. It’s not gonna happen. It’s not a question of “waiting for the right woman” — I found her over 20 years ago, and that’s that — or of some unfortunate biological malfunction. When my partner and I were together a while, we started to talk about children, and we decided together that we would not have any. And quite a number of years ago, we took permanent steps to ensure that we weren’t going to have children. But there are kids in my life — lots of them. Friends’ children; neighbours’; nieces; nephews. And having been around other people’s…

It’s truly a double-edged, damn if you do, damn if you don’t topic, wrought with landmines and a path paved with…profit. Especially female sexual dysfunction. Female sexual dysfunction describes an amalgam of symptoms and issues around women and their sexual desire or lack thereof that include: a chronic lack of interest in sexual activity, avoidance of sexual contact, the inability to maintain excitement, difficulty in reaching orgasm after arousal, pain during intercourse,…

    I didn’t sleep well last night. Actually, I didn’t sleep last night. I went to bed in the evening feeling fully prepared and ready to sleep. I even fell asleep with little effort. For about 2 hours. Then I woke, and dozed, and woke again. I got up around 12:41 am and prowled the house quietly. Then back to bed; there were no monsters. I woke again shortly after 2:00 am, did the trip to the bathroom. Back to bed. Heard my partner wake and move about the house. Another sleepless being. Shortly after, I got up, and got more water. I kept trying to sleep. I kept dozing off, waking,…

    I have had my subscription to Ipsy.com for two years now.  For $10 a month I get five cosmetic items, plus a cosmetic bag.  I usually get several full size items, along with deluxe samples.  I get skin care, nail polish, hair care, etc.  As you can imagine, after two years, I have a lot of stuff. A lot of cool stuff that I usually put in a drawer and forget about.  I have a stash of unwanted stuff that I have been sending to my niece over the years.  For the most part, I love everything I get.  It is fun trying brands I have never heard off. I got some blue brown eye shadow that simply…

    Hot flushes, night sweats, bloating, lack of energy, low mood and disturbed sleep are some of the symptoms of the menopause. Some women sail through with little or no symptoms while others experience all that is on offer at this stage of life. Hot flushes and night sweats are the symptom that I get asked most about at the health store. Recently I wrote an article suggesting remedies to take for hot flushes/night sweats. Lady Care is another option if you are still looking for a solution. I have been talking to a lot of women who use Lady Care, it’s a magnet used to help relieve the symptoms…

  • 10 Things I Learned at My First Dirty Girl Mud Run

    Last year, I wrote a blog post about the Dirty Girl 5K Mud Run. At the time, and not having actually run the event, I was just hoping to inspire our readers to stay active and have a little fun. Little did I know that my next step would be signing up and spending an action-packed Saturday morning running, walking, and laughing my way through a muddy obstacle course. And you know what? I haven’t had that much fun in years. But somewhere between the Utopian Tubes and Dirty Dancing, I learned a few life lessons that I wasn’t expecting. It’s easy to get stuck in a comfort zone.

    Shaving is a ubiquitous morning ritual for men in our culture. We just take it for granted that after puberty a man will shave. It’s like brushing your teeth; you just do it. But, shaving can cause skin problems. And, taking a break from shaving can give your skin a rest. Support Movember, the No-Shave November movement, and give your skin a break too.

  • Why You Need to Wear a Sunscreen in Winter

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    7 Nov 2014 | 9:45 am
    Do You Need to Wear Sunscreen in Winter? UV rays cause skin aging and they are out all year. Yes, you may notice that the sun rays feel “softer” and less intense in the winter. They are to some extent because UVB, the summer sunburn ray, is much less prevalent. This is also the ray that makes vitamin D. But don’t be fooled.  UVA is out in full force; it is as strong in winter as it is in summer. It causes skin aging and irregular pigment, like melasma and sun spots. To prevent skin aging and irregular skin pigment, you need broad spectrum sun protection all year,…
