Natural Science – Global Warming

While some would call global warming a theory, others would call it a proven set of facts. Opinions differ vehemently. Let us consider global warming to be both a premise that the environment of the world as we know it is slowly, but very surely increasing in overall air and water temperature, and a promise that if whatever is causing this trend is not interrupted or challenged life on earth will dynamically be affected.

The prevailing counter opinion is that all that is presently perceived to be global warming is simply the result of a normal climactic swing in the direction of increased temperature. Continue reading…

 

Health Science – Nasal Congestion

Does your nose feel stuffed up and congested?  The annoying feeling of nasal obstruction is related to the humidity and temperature of inhaled air. There are findings that suggest sensory feedback from nasal airflow which contributes to the sensation of congestion. Researchers can use this knowledge to design and test treatments that are more effective for this familiar symptom of nasal sinus disease.

Usually caused by infection or allergy, nasal sinus disease is one of the most common medical conditions in the United States, afflicting approximately 33 million people with over $5.8 billion in healthcare costs annually. Continue reading…

 

A Few Ways to Look Good While Volunteering

Volunteering is a great use of time. We all like to do it, or at least we wish we could do more of it. It’s mostly great because of the people you get to help in the process, and the other volunteers that you get to meet.

We are going to bring this article into a different direction that we usually do. We’re going to talk about how to look good while you’re volunteering. Because, at the end of the day, if you’re doing what you love and you’re around a bunch of other people who love the same thing, it’s a perfect place to meet someone who has the same interest and also cares about people like you do. I’m not saying it should be your only incentive, but it might be an added incentive when you choose to volunteer when you’re too tired, or have too much going on. I could help give you a push!

We are going to go through a few different options for those who want to look good while they volunteer.

Makeup: choose some makeup that advertises lasting effects. This is especially true with mascara, which goes a long way if it’s waterproof. You are going to be out there sweating profusely. If you choose makeup that will run easily, it will have reverse effects. You’ll come out looking like complete crap, and that’s just not what we’re going for here. You also don’t want to put on makeup that has too bold of colors. You don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard. It should be sweet and subtle.

Clothes: clearly you want to wear something like workout clothes. But workout clothes can be very fashionable if you wear them right. They key to workout clothes in contrast. You don’t want to wear dark bottoms and a dark top. That will just look tacky. You want light bottoms and a dark top or dark bottoms with a light top. If you’re a guy, try a pair or light to medium gray shorts that come above the knee with a dark blue or black light fleece. The dark coloring will keep it from getting overly dirty, and the light shorts will complement the fleece well. This way you can look relatively stylish while you volunteer. Also, the people you are volunteering with will know that you also look good outside of the volunteering gig.

Hair: you don’t want to go overboard here. If you’re a girl, don’t do the whole nine. You don’t want to have full, heavy curls with half a can of hairspray in your hair, it will look unnatural, and ultimately superficial. Try a more classic, girls next door look. Maybe bring it back into a pony tail with some loose bangs hanging out, keep it tight and stylish, but also, you don’t want it to look like you’re trying too hard.

For guys, I would emphasize not using a product without matte. You want your hair to look good and stay in place, but you want to forfeit the shine.

Thanks for reading!

 

What You Need to Know about Solar Power

Eco-friendly living does not need to be restrictive. There is no need to live in caves and collect wood for fire just to preserve the nature. Simple things, like selective collection of trash or water waste limitations can minimize the impact people have on earth without yet affecting their overall comfort. Modern living, with all its appliances, gadgets and fancy food is an option even when you want to go green. One of the best examples to limit the carbon footprint and still enjoy the benefits of up-to-date technology is using solar electricity to hear and power your home.

Each year, the earth receives 174 petawatts of solar radiation. Part of it is sent back in space, another part is absorbed by the water and ground, while the last part is directed towards plants and animals. From this last portion of radiations, the humans need only a fraction to have regular power with minimum investment and almost no environment damage.

What is solar power?

Solar power is the technology used to harness sun’s radiant light and heat and transform them into electricity. The first solar device used to produce electricity was built in 1954 and even though its efficiency was rather low, its inventors had high hopes for it. And they were not wrong, as nowadays the solar power is one of the hottest trends in eco-friendly living.

Means of using solar rays in your household

There are numerous ways in which you can use the solar rays to increase the comfort in your home. They are grouped into two categories – the active means and the passive means of using solar rays.

Active means of employing solar power

The active means of using solar power are the ones which catch the solar rays and transform them into electricity or heat. The most popular such devices are the photovoltaic panels and the solar thermal power plants. The photovoltaic panels attract the light towards the semiconductor cells. When the light hits the cell, the electrons are detached from the atoms and start floating inside the cell to create electricity. Solar panels can be installed on the grid or off the grid. You can purchase one or more for individual use or can be grouped together to form solar power plants.

The solar thermal power plants are more similar to traditional power plants, but instead of using coal, the sun power is used. The sun heat is directed towards a container of water which starts boiling and produces electricity. Other plants use oil which is heated until boiling temperature. The oil heats the water to produce power. These plants are usually designed to serve a community and cannot be installed individually. Furthermore, they need professional installation and service for proper functioning.These means of obtaining electricity from solar rays are called supply side technology, because they offer a product/service and encourage its use.

Passive ways of using solar power

Heat absorbing building materials, large windows which enable light to pass inside and heat the air and a design which uses the sun power for heating and natural light inside the house are the main principles of the passive solar power. The buildings are specially designed to ventilate properly during the summer and absorb heat and light during winter time. This type of building is known as a demand side technology, because it reduces the need of using alternate resources for heat, electricity and cooling systems.

Although it has seen a considerable increase in the number of users, the solar power is far from reaching its high potential. Therefore, if you feel the need for an environmental friendly change in your life, take a sneak peak at what it has to offer. Whether you choose solar panels, design your house for maximized efficiency or ask your local power provider for green electricity, you are on the right track to reduce pollution and waste. All these with no sacrifice or side effects!

 

Can Cutting Trees Really Benefit the World’s Climate?

Contrary to popular belief and the ethical norm, cutting down trees is not always harmful for the environment. When done professionally and for the right reasons, the timber industry believes that the process can in fact provide a partial solution for climate change.

Take the case of all those overgrown forests that burned for instance. Burned trees produced a significantly large amount of carbon dioxide releasing them into our environment and consequently affecting climate change. According to Chris West of the American Forest Resource Council, if loggers were able to get to those forests first and thinned the trees, burning may never have happened.

In other words, West believes that rapid climate change no longer allows us to sit back and let Mother Nature take its course. We need to give her a hand and remove as much wood from overgrown forests and use them to build houses and furniture.

Professor Bruce Lippke, researcher at the University Of Washington College Of Forest Resources, backs up West saying that houses are excellent storage banks for carbon. Instead of emitting carbon into the air producing more greenhouse gases, houses made of wood store carbon for decades. Between concrete and wood houses, the latter is certainly the winner when it comes to less carbon dioxide emissions.

For those in the timber industries, it now comes down to knowing when and how to cut overgrown trees right without injuring other healthy trees in the forest. This is where the best chainsaw plays a vital role in improving the health of forest ecosystems. As a viable and powerful tool for loggers, the use of a chainsaw ensures that trees are felled safely and correctly.

When it comes to felling trees, safety always comes first. There is no room for carelessness which is why it’s paramount to choose the right chainsaw to use beforehand and The Power Toolbox is a great place to start when comparing the best options for personal and commercial logging available in the market today.

Timing is another factor to take into account when cutting trees. To help save the environment, loggers must get to the forests before its prime to burn naturally. Whether the trees are meant for building houses, furniture or as fuel, the best time to cut them down is during late fall through winter. At this time, sap saturation is at its lowest hence felling is easier.

The timber industry’s role in helping save forest ecosystems doesn’t stop with cutting down trees at the right time and use them to create savings account for carbon dioxide. Those in the business should also make it their mission to plant new trees in the cut forest to create a cycle that benefits not only the industry but also the environment and the economy.

Some might say, however, that the timber industry is only out to justify cutting more trees. There might be an ounce of truth to that but at the same time, what the like of West and Lippke are suggesting also has its own merits. Houses, after all, will continue to get build and overgrown forests will continue to burn naturally. In the end, the world’s climate can benefit if those trees are used to build houses as carbon storage instead.

 

How Teachers Can Make Students Care About Environmental Health

Caring for the Earth has become more than simply fashionable, it’s absolutely vital for future generations. Conservation offers a way for students – and adults – to become better educated about environmental issues and learn what actionable steps they can take to make a real difference. Teaching students about the environment can be a challenge, though. The concepts can be difficult and, at times, it can be hard for them to understand how doing something now will affect a planet later on. Besides there’s little information they can find in a research paper for sale. Here are seven quick tips for making the lesson easier for students without lessening its overall impact.

1. Start Early – Comparing care for the environment with planting a seed is a good analogy for a reason, students who develop an interest in the outdoors at an early age are more likely to carry that interest through to adulthood.

2. Let Them Get Dirty – If the school or local community has a shared garden or space to offer, make the most of it by supporting your year-long lesson with a hands on experiment in gardening. The benefits of a student garden have been well documented and it can be used to teach about the environment, agriculture and nutrition, making it perhaps the most multi-functional classroom in the world.

3. Get Out the Popcorn – Using independent films to educate students can help them to grasp more complex ideas and concepts without having to navigate through dense text. Bullfrog Films has become the go to source for well-made independent films covering a host of difficult topics, from environmental issues to economic reform.

4. Make it Relevant – Framing ecological issues in a way that is relevant can help students to be more engaged. Teaching High School students about the effects of car emissions can be a tough sell, until you show them how understanding fuel efficiency can help them stretch their gas money.

5. Connect The Earth to Their Goals – Older students may already have an idea of what they want to do as a career. Engage their long term goals with environmental health by finding common ground. Future engineers can connect with the work of the Hoover Dam, fashionistas can find out about sustainable materials and fair trade while future tech heads can learn about the technology that powers renewable energy and recycling.

6. Start Small – Regardless of when you begin lessons about the environment, start small. Smothering kids of any age with too much detail or tons of information can leave them feeling overwhelmed and, eventually, turned off to the idea.

7. Address the Other Side – Issues regarding the environment are the focus of a great deal of debate. As students get older and develop a better understanding of the science behind environmental health, address issues such as climate change denial and oil drilling head on. Don’t demonize the other side but, instead, focus on the science and sense in order to help students develop their own opinions and a better understanding of the issues.

 

The 3 Health Risks of Smoked Foods

One of Americans’ favorite pastimes is a classic barbecue. Family and friends enjoy each others’ company outdoors, while the smell of smoking meat wafts through the yard, enticing neighbors to join the gathering. But did you know that eating smoked or grilled foods can carry significant health implications? Here are three reasons you may be at risk by consuming smoked or grilled meats.

Sodium Content

While this risk factor applies mostly to cold smoked foods, the brining sometimes necessary for heat smoked foods can pose issues as well. Sodium, when used in moderation, is an essential part of your diet. It assists in the balance of electrolytes, fluid maintenance and enzyme functions. It can even help to regulate muscle contractions and prevent cramping. However, excess sodium can lead to stroke, high blood pressure, kidney stones and even heart failure. Cold smoking is a process by which food is cooked over a very low temperature after having been cured or fermented. The curing process adds a considerable amount of salt to the food; an ounce of smoked salmon contains 222 grams of sodium while an ounce of generic potato chips contains only 168 grams. This, of course, is not to say that potato chips are a healthier option than smoked fish. However, as with any snack, smoked meats must be consumed in moderation.

Botulism and Bacteria

Botulism is a food poisoning caused by improperly canned or preserved foods. It’s also caused by improperly fermented or cured meats. In addition to botulism, smoked foods also carry a risk of salmonella and other bacteria, and great care should be taken in preparing them. There are several factors which could cause an increased risk of bacteria in smoked foods, including an improperly cured piece of meat, the quality of the meat purchased for smoking, and the extent to which it is cooked on a smoker. Charcoal smoked food is susceptible to bacteria because the temperature of the smoker is largely unregulated. Internal smoker temperatures may vary greatly, particularly when checking, mopping or flipping meats, and may not cook properly; under-cooked meats are likely to contain harmful bacteria. Cold smoked, cured or fermented meats are especially likely to pose a threat due to the many steps involved in the processing. One way to decrease the risk of bacteria in your smoked meats is to ensure that the meat you purchase is fresh and local, and has not previously been frozen. Often a local butcher can provide meats which may be more safe for smoking.

Carcinogens

While not an immediate threat to your health, studies have proven that using charcoal to smoke meats will release carcinogens into the air, and as a result onto your food. Carcinogens are cancer-causing chemicals. The technical name for the carcinogens released from charcoal is “polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons”, or PAHs, but they’re simply chemicals which are released into the air while burning charcoal, oil, gas and garbage. Unfortunately, there is not only a cancer risk associated with eating charcoal-smoked foods, but also with the grilling process itself. Once inhaled, these PAHs will enter your body and target fat tissues, kidneys and your liver.

There are three ways you can reduce risk of sickness or even death caused by consuming smoked meats. The first, as mentioned previously, is to ensure that you are buying high quality fresh meats which come from local sources. The second is to use an electric smoker for smoking meats. Because the temperature is regulated in an electric smoker, and it does not require the use of charcoal, you will greatly reduce your exposure to bacteria and carcinogens. Electric Smoker Central is a great resource for reviews, tips and recipes which are posted by regular smoker users. Reading through the guest posts will allow you to choose the best electric smoker for you. Finally, if you feel that the taste and smell of charcoal-smoked meat is something that you’re not willing to forfeit, you may choose to purchase pure carbon charcoal. While not one hundred percent safe, burning pure charcoal may help to eliminate some of the risks associated with smoked meats. As with any decadent food, enjoy your smoked meats in moderation.

 

Simple Ways to Improve Everyone’s Life on Earth

One of the biggest trends today is the concept of “going green” in order to help the environment. Yet, many of the people who talk about doing this fail to actually put real steps into action. Many others simply don’t know what they’re supposed to do besides showing support for others. Here, you’ll learn about how to care for the earth, the environment, and yourself all at the same time. It’s a mission that everyone can get behind.

If you started a conversation on the street with random passersby and asked them about how to succeed in this mission, you’d probably get a lot of similar responses. The tried and true answer of recycling would likely be put forth by almost everyone, while many others may suggest donating to an environmental nonprofit agency, such as the EDF or another one of the very well known organizations.

Once you get started, you’ll see that there’s an amazing range of ways that you can improve your lifestyle based around being more eco-friendly and environmentally-conscious. For example, this simple list of 50 ways to help the planet showcases 50 simple ideas that you can incorporate on a day to day level, that cost you next to nothing in terms of convenience or actual expense, but enable you to drastically improve and alter your behavior for the better, and for the benefit of our planet.

Caring for yourself is inherently linked towards caring for the earth and the environment. As you learn about the ways that you can reduce your footprint, and have a more positive impact on your community and the world that you’re leaving behind for the next generation, you’ll also be learning about better ways to care for yourself, too.

For instance, eating organic, locally grown foods is a wonderful way to do both at the same time. Even when you need an extra boost to support your health goals, you can still choose organic. This article about organic protein powder might be a useful read for you. Organic protein provides superior nutrients from raw foods and organic sources, and you can be confident that you’re choosing a product which supports a healthful body as you’re living a lifestyle which supports a healthful environment.

Another great way to care for the earth, the environment and yourself all at the same time is by leaving the car keys at home, and opting for transportation methods such as walking or biking. You’ll get great exercise, you’ll enjoy the outdoors, and you won’t be polluting the world as you do it. You’ll even save money without having to pay for all of that gas, along with parking and whatever other expenses may arise.

Even if you can’t walk or bike to your destination, you could choose public transportation instead. Many communities today are making collective efforts to be more environmentally friendly, placing a premium on building the infrastructure for a greener society. That includes the installation of new walking and biking paths, systems such as bike-sharing and rental stations, and superior public transportation options.

When you are driving yourself around town, then utilizing a hybrid vehicle offers dramatic improvements in your gas mileage and in turn the negative impact you have on the environment. While the purchase of a new vehicle certainly represents an initial investment, in the long run, you’ll save money with superior fuel efficiency.

The same principle applies at your home, too. When you install solar panel systems or other alternative energy sources, you may pay more upfront, but over time you’ll reap the rewards of ongoing savings. You’ll even be able to take advantage of tax credits in most cases when you either purchase a hybrid or install a renewable energy system on your property.

Remember, improving our planet and the environment as a whole may seem like a massive mountain to move, and it may seem as if there’s no way that each person can actually make a difference. However, big goals are achieved with small steps, and it’s the responsibility of each individual to play their part. When you’re ready to take action, there’s a huge range of ways that you can care for the earth and the environment and begin having a proactive, positive impact.

 

The Pros and Cons of Buying Locally

There are a lot of misconceptions out there about buying locally. Many people believe that it is the most environmentally friendly way of buying food, even though this is not always the case. I am not questioning that buying locally has plenty of good effects on the local economy, or your health, but it might not be the greenest option.

I love going to the farmer’s market on a Saturday morning. I live three miles from it, so it is a perfect excuse for me to put on my running gear that I got from this website, and work out a bit while buying ingredients for the family lunch. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of buying locally!

First of all, buying locally stimulates the economy of your city. Buying from local vendors creates jobs, and keeps the money in the local economy. When you buy from local shops you develop relationships with the people who work there, which means that they will be more willing to purchase from you if you own a shop yourself.

Buying locally can be more healthy as you are aware of the local regulations. Which artificial materials are they allowed to use during manufacturing? What kind of soil are they allowed to use?

When you buy locally, you develop connections with the owners of the shops. These relationships mean that if there is a way, the vendor is going to go out of his way to ensure that your needs are met. They might hold back items for you, find difficult to get foods for you just because you two have a relationship.

Buying from local vendors means that it will be easier to find fresh food. The items are more likely to be crisp and tasty when they don’t have to travel for thousands of miles in cardboard boxes, they only have to be taken down the road. Only transporting the goods for a few miles means that there is less pollution and greenhouse gas emission.

However there are a few negatives when it comes to buying locally, so you need to stay clever if you want to make the best decision as far as being environmentally friendly is concerned. Sometimes producing goods locally can take up more resources than exporting them. For example growing tomatoes in Spain and transporting them to Minnesota is a lot cheaper than building artificial green houses locally. Not to mention that the tomatoes are going to taste better. Simply put there are resources that are hard to replace, and are specific to location, in this case the sunshine.

Local vendors are prone to operate on small scales, as they cater to a local market in most cases. On the other hand large operations who operate on a global scale know how to take advantage of economies of scale. They are able to strike better deals thanks to their connections and bargaining power. This means that they are able to produce cheaper goods, which can in turn be more economically friendly.

 

Social Rules of Camping

Most of the time camping is a social activity. Sure, you can go on a backpacking trip in the forest alone, but if you are going to stay at a campground you will be surrounded by countless families, and you will have to share the place with them. Just like in cities, there are certain rules that you have to adhere to in order to be a respected part of the community, and ensure that everybody  has a good time camping.

When you set up your accommodation for the night, you should be considerate of the placement of the tents of others. Don’t camp too close to them, leave at least two meters of space between tents, and don’t set up your hammock on the two trees that somebody else is camping right next to. You can find great and comfortable hammocks at this website. My favorite models are the poolside ones, you should bring one on your trip if the campground is next to a lake, or if it has a swimming pool.

It is crucial that you drive safely when you arrive. Many campgrounds let cars and RVs into the campground, so you can drive between tents of others until you find your final spot to stay. Needless to say that there are little children and pets running around at every campsite, so if you drive too fast you are threatening the lives of others. Be aware that the campsite is for people on foot, and you are only allowed in as a sign of trust that you will keep an eye out for the others, and not the other way around. Drive as slowly as you can, and pay close attention. It can save lives.

 Another rule that many get wrong is respecting the quiet time of others. Many people put out their record player and listen to loud music. I have no problem with music, but in the age of iPods, why not get an earplug, and spare everyone else from listening to the music. I don’t understand why that would be less enjoyable for you, while it would certainly let others carry on with their business unopposed.  The cardinal sin for me is listening to loud music after the Sun has gone down. Some people are shouting and having extremely loud conversations during the night. This prevents others from going to sleep. Consider the others around you, and don’t be too loud.

Many campers leave all their trash behind. This is very rude and inconsiderate in my book. I would certainly never leave chocolate papers and tissues lying around in my own home, and I doubt that these people would. I don’t understand why camping is any different. Picking up the trash after yourself is just part of being a decent human being.

The next very important thing is to not let your kids running loose unattended. I already wrote that they might get hit by campers who are driving on the campground. There are many other sources of danger on a campground for them, they might get lost for example. Kids can be a bit too loud in the heat of playing, so keeping a close eye on them is important in order to not bother other campers. I am not advocating being totally silent, but running wild, bumping into tents and RVs is not acceptable.

 

Change your air filter, reduce allergens, and save the environment

filterIt is very important to live a greener life and to help save the environment in any little way that we can. If every person in the world did a small thing everyday to be more environmentally friendly it would have a huge overall impact on the environment each and every day. With busy lives and careers it is not always easy to try to be green. But there are so many little things you can do that over time have a huge impact. If you can add one thing to your day that is environmentally friendly and do that one thing for a month it will become a habit. Then the next month you add another one small thing, and so on. After a year you are doing a dozen environmentally friendly things every single day, now imagine if every person did that what kind of impact would it have in one year?

There are very simple things you can do that not only help save the environment but can also make your life and your family’s lives better on a daily basis. Improving the way you live and the quality of your indoor air can have a great impact on your family’s health. Reducing air pollution and allergens in your home improves your indoor air quality, and the overall health of everyone that lives in your home.

One very simple, quick task you can do once a month to improve your indoor air quality, reduce pollution and better your family’s health is to change your air filters. By checking and changing your air filters in your furnace and air conditioning systems you reduce allergens in your home, improve your indoor air quality and your family’s health. That one simple five minute job, once a month has such a far reaching impact on everyone in your home as well as the environment as a whole.

Changing the air filters reduces the amount of energy required to run your heating and cooling systems, saving energy and money you spend on heating and cooling. Since your heating and cooling account for almost half of the energy used in your home that savings can add up very quickly. It also reduces costs of maintenance and repairs or replacements of your heating and cooling systems. The more efficient they operate the longer the systems will last without being repaired or replaced. In the long run you save each month on energy bills and you extend the lie of your heating and cooling systems for long term savings.

Allergens are the number one cause of unhealthy indoor air quality. By changing your air filters regularly you can reduce the allergens that are blown into your living space tremendously. When you check your air filters and see all the dust and debris you will understand why you should change these as often as once a month, at the very least they should be changed every three months. During seasons of heavy use you may want to check them twice a month to ensure it is clean.

 

Going Green With Your Skin Care

If we want to take care of our Earth, then we need to be willing to look beyond the obvious. We can’t just focus on things like recycling, driving a hybrid car, or whatever the environmentally friendly trend of the month is.

Instead, we need to make Eco-smart living an integral part of our daily lives. When we make such mundane decisions as how to take care of our skin, we need to think, “Am I making an environmentally friendly choice here”?

This may sound a bit silly, but hear me out. I chose this example to illustrate that even such seemingly unimportant decisions as this can become an opportunity for us to help our planet.

Think about it like this, you can treat acne or other skin problems in one of two different ways. Your first option is to go to a dermatologist and spend an exorbitant amount of money for the latest and greatest medicine or high-tech treatment. The problem with this option is that you are wasting valuable resources (in the form of your hard earned money) that could be used elsewhere, and when it comes down to it all of these resources are in some way derived from our use of mother Earth. You wouldn’t have that money without your use of this beautiful planet.

The second, and more Eco-smart option would be to choose an inexpensive natural remedy such as aloe Vera, apple cider vinegar, evening primrose oil, other essential oils or any number of other available remedies. These options are all much less expensive and more friendly to the environment. There’s very little waste involved and you save valuable resources which can be put to profitable use elsewhere.

If you are wondering how to get rid of blackheads overnight, stay away from those face cleansing wipes which fill up your wastebasket and then our landfills. Instead, try to improve your diet or lifestyle by eating better and getting rid of unhealthy habits like smoking or drinking.

If you aren’t eating a healthy diet, then there are numerous vitamins that you may be deficient in which could be contributing to your acne. These include vitamins A, E, C, zinc and others. However, I would not recommend going out and buying a bunch of tubes of vitamin A cream for acne. That would just create even more trash and it would be expensive which (as I’ve mentioned before) would be a waste of resources.

The environmentally friendly way to get vitamin A would be to start eating more fresh produce such as carrots or other orange vegetables. Try growing a vegetable garden and partaking of some of the Earth’s generous bounty.

You could even look into other natural remedies for acne such as Manuka honey, tea tree oil or even lemon juice. These things are great at killing the bacteria that causes acne and have way less side effects than most of the common doctor prescribed acne treatments. You can even use lemon juice to make a natural chemical peel because it’s full of citric acid.

So next time you’re wondering what you can do to help the environment, just take a second to think. All of our daily routines should be taken into consideration. You can find ways to be Eco-smart in the most unexpected places.
