Manage Of Venice Learn To Care For You Skin With These 9 Awesome Tips

Do you suffer from dry and itchy skin? Are you embarrassed by scars, blemishes or peeling skin? Let the suffering stop and show off your beautiful skin! Below are tips to help you in your journey to good skin care. You can get the beautiful, glowing and healthy skin you always wanted!1. Relax! – Elevated stress levels can cause skin to become more sensitive and also initiate breakouts. Not to mention the wrinkles caused by constantly having a furrowed brow and clenched teeth! Try yoga or meditation to manage stress or just relax and take time out to do something you love. Relaxation techniques and learning coping skills will help reduce stress. Your skin can become damaged from stress. Your complexion will clear up significantly when you reduce environmental and emotional stressors. Having less stress in your life will be beneficial to the rest of your life too.2. Get Protection From The Sun. – Whenever you go outside, remember to use plenty of sunblock. If you fail to do this, your skin could undergo something called photo aging. The sun damages the cells in your skin and will cause your skin to prematurely age, leading to more wrinkles in your skin as you age.


If you use sunscreen to protect your delicate skin, try making your own, by adding pomegranate extract to your diet. Surprisingly enough, there are compounds in pomegranate that can help your skin protect itself from sun damage, even without an extra layer of sunscreen. You can increase your skin’s protection against the sun up to 25 percent, by consuming about 60 mg of pomegranate extract daily.3. Avoid Touching Your Face Often. To prevent breakouts of acne, try using facial care products that come in a spray-on applicator. This will keep you from transferring bacteria, oils and potentially irritating substances from your hands to your face while applying things like sunscreen or moisturizer. Having a more bacteria-free face can in turn reduce your chances of developing pimples.4. Cut Back On The Sweets – Avoid excessive eating of chocolate to ensure optimal skin. Most chocolate can cause acne when eaten in too large of quantities, causing the body (primarily the face) to over produce oil. Some chocolate is fine to eat, but only eat the suggested serving size of the chocolate product you are consuming.5. Remove Sweat And Oils From Your Skin Promptly. Try to bathe after exercising and try taking showers, at least twice a day. Make sure to use the body washes and soaps that work with your individual skin type. Also, make sure that you do not bathe with hot water and keep it warm or average. Bathing with hot water can strip the oil from your skin, leaving it very dry.6. Exfoliate After Shaving – Hair removal often comes with an unwanted result: ingrown hairs. After you wax or shave, exfoliate the area with a loofah or an over-the-counter scrub each time you take a shower. Make sure to scrub the skin for at least thirty seconds. Moisturize with aloe vera gel afterward. This will prevent ingrown hairs from forming.7. Try New Product To See What Works Best For You. Always look for free samples to try out new items. Ask at malls and beauty stores for complimentary products. Makeup reacts differently on various skin types and it is wise to find out which products will have a negative impact before spending tons of money. There is not a miracle product that works for everyone so be willing to test everything.8. Be Selective About Your Makeup. If you choose to wear foundation, it pays to know what kind to wear based on your skin type. The wrong foundation can make you look somewhat artificial, whereas the right foundation, applied properly, can really bring out the best in your skin. Foundations come in a number of different forms – powder, a mix of powder & cream, cream, whipped or foam, liquid/lotion – and they all apply and appear quite differently, so it’s worth doing the research to find out which type best suits your complexion.


9. Be Mindful Of Other Products You Use. If part of your skin care plan includes using organic materials then make sure that you know where the ingredients are coming from. Many companies do not share this information, which means you may be getting more than what you bargained for. Countries like Europe offer a stricter set of rules that trace the ingredients back to their source, so consider purchasing from them.Nobody should have to go through life being embarrassed by his or her skin. Using the tips above will help you get rid of blemishes, scars and dry, peeling skin. The tips will also help you have nourished, healthy skin that is radiant, beautiful and ready for the world to see

Artificial Intelligence and Our Humanity

We hear and read about it everywhere these days.

You hear people saying, “The future is now.”

“We have to give way to technology.”

“We’ll be better off and live better lives (maybe not even work) if we let AI do it.”

Yes, technology is here, and we are living at the dawn of the age of AI, and it’s a topic that we’ve seen and heard a lot more about this year.

I wonder what the opportunities will be for the average person. You know, the person who is not the founder of Facebook, Google or Amazon, which have placed such high barriers to entry that it will be rare for companies to break into that stratospheric league.

What’s Going to Happen with Humans?

Do you wonder what’s going to happen to the average person? AI are taking over customer service, writing, design, sales, law, and medicine. As a businessman and social entrepreneur, the reality is that if you’re looking at things in a purely bottom-line manner, using AI could make a whole lot of sense. They never get sick. They work 27/7/365. They never stop and can indeed produce more than any human can–in a lifetime. From a pure dollars and cents perspective, AI can make a lot of sense.

But then you have to wonder about the broader implications of AI, and I sense that society has not even started to get its head around the implications. If you pay even a little attention to the news, then you know that a few months ago Facebook engineers shut down and pulled the plug on AI that decided on its own to go ahead and develop a new language. It was more efficient for them to get the work done, but humans did not understand. It seems that the language was basic, but what happens if the AI had not been shut down? Would they have developed a highly sophisticated way to communicate and operate that completely excised human?

I agree that technology can be beneficial to society. I think most people would agree that we’d prefer to send a bot into a dangerous situation, say war, rather than ask our men and women to put their lives on the line. I think there’s something to be said for the rapidly expanding role of robotics in medicine. For example, the fact that we’ve started to print human organs with 3D is a significant advancement, and we have to hope that many lives will be saved.

The Deeper Issues Related to AI

My concern as I dig deeper into the issue of AI is what the implications are for the human race, and yes, that even includes how we in the philanthropic sector connect with each other and with the world we serve. As I noted in the previous article I wrote, the Partnership on AI, which is a collaborative effort between mega-companies such as Facebook, Apple, Google and leading non-profits such as UNICEF and Human Rights are trying to lead the conversation about the implications of AI in all of our lives.

If you tune in even a little bit into the conversation about AI, you know that we have to deal with many issues, including some of the following:

Safety: We don’t want to be in a situation where AI is created, and it is not obligated to protect human life.
Transparency: We had the recent situation with Facebook where they shut down AI, but who rules (government or business) when someone says “Houston, we have a problem”?
Labor and the Economy: Whose responsibility is it to train people as AI develops and what will their work functions be in light of a much more powerful AI partner? Will people even have jobs?
Society: For communities around the world, which certainly includes nonprofit and philanthropic work, what will be the impact of AI on philanthropy, education, charitable work, science, private/public partnerships, etc.

The reality seems to be apparently developing that there are few areas–if any–that AI will not touch.

Humanity’s Competitive Advantage

When I read about issues related to AI, I think of one thing–humanity. I believe we all have to get into the conversation now about the implications of AI. I’m someone who likes and values people precisely because we are imperfect. There is a lot of prose and poetry in the human condition. AI cannot love, demonstrate courage, hope, dream, feel fear, etc.

In my mind, those qualities are what makes humans so much better than AI. Our values are our competitive advantage in comparison to AI. There is something intrinsic within people (some call it a soul or spirit, others connect the scientific dots of all the elements that make up our brains, hearts, and bodies) that makes us unique, and yes, even exceptional.

We have a serious conversation that has to take place about AI, but it involves all humans, and we have to pay attention before we have a situation we did not bargain for in the age of technology.

The Path for Humanity as it Greets AI

In many ways, I hope that AI begins to break down the things that divide us and that we discover that as humans, we are all the same. We are. Take away the issues of money, race, religion, gender and everything else; we all bleed red.

We all hurt.

We all hope.

We all dream.

The way I see it, the time is now for humanity. It can be our finest hours at the dawn of a new age–provided we all get out of our own way and engage in a global dialogue about humanity in the age of AI.
