~ Cellulite and Menopause ~

Cellulite and menopause :

Cellulite is not a direct by-product of menopause, but many women start noticing this dreaded skin change during the menopausal years. Sometimes called ‘orange peel’ skin or ‘cottage cheese’ skin, cellulite is a condition that affects a woman’s self esteem. In our obsession with perfect bodies, cellulite encroaches on almost every aspect of women’s emotional well-being.

Cellulite defined ........
The term cellulite came into popular use during the 1970s to describe the dimpled skin many women get on their thighs, buttocks, and abdomens. Cellulite is nothing more than a fancy word for plain old fat. Specifically, cellulite refers to the pockets of fat that become trapped between the layers of skin.

Cellulite: trapped fat?
The outer layer of our skin, called the epidermis, covers the deeper inner layer of skin known as the dermis. Additionally, there are three deeper (subcutaneous) layers of fat underneath the dermis. Normally these layers support each other evenly, giving the outer layer of skin (epidermis) a taut, smooth appearance. Skin tissues found in these layers surround the fat deposits and keep them in place.

When the structure of these skin tissues breaks down, the result is the fat gathers into small pockets that are no longer held together in a tight structure. These fat pockets are trapped within the skin’s layers and begin to transform individually. No longer are the fat pockets strung together in a firm layer, but rather become spread out. Now the fat pockets are more visible at the skin’s outer surface.

Women and cellulite ......
About 90% of all women beyond adolescence will develop cellulite during their lifetimes. Cellulite can appear at any time, but often becomes more noticeable during menopause and peri-menopause. Menopause is not a direct cause of cellulite, but some experts point out that estrogen levels are responsible for maintaining strong connective tissue. As our estrogen levels decrease during menopause, the greater the risk for developing that orange peel complexion. But many women will begin to see signs of cellulite long before menopause or peri-menopause.

Men store their fat cells differently, and tend to have more fat around the abdominal area. Women on the other hand have more fat cells to begin with, and these are mostly concentrated around the hips, thighs, and buttocks. Men’s fat cells tend to maintain more firmness and support within the skin than women’s fat cells.

Stages of cellulite .........

*Mild cellulite is normally not visible under normal standing conditions or when lying down. But when you squeeze your buttock or thighs, you will notice some dimpled skin.

*Moderate cellulite is more visible when standing and the skin appears slightly or moderately dimpled.

*Severe cellulite is very easily detected and the skin appears to have a rough texture like that of an orange peel or cottage cheese.

Causes of cellulite :
Besides the aging process, cellulite is often blamed on a diet high in fats and/or processed foods, a lack of exercise and a lack of water in the skin. Yet cellulite strikes women of all shapes and sizes; being thin does not guarantee a life free from dimpled skin. Once the connecting tissues in the skin weaken due to age, the skin’s elasticity and firmness are affected.

No real cure ......
Despite an abundance of so-called cures and treatments for cellulite there is no real way to get rid of cellulite. Women spend millions of dollars every year searching for magical creams, lotions, and even surgeries to deal with cellulite.

Changing our diets to lessen fat intake can help to shrink the size of fat cells and pockets we have, but the fat cells themselves will never melt away or disappear. Exercise is crucial for maintaining good overall health, but there are no true methods to target specific areas of the body for spot treatments. Exercise is great for strengthening our muscles and is good for our skin, yet is unable to really penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin.

Cellulite is inevitable for most of us; even the most avid athletes will end up with cellulite at some point in their lives. There are no real cures to deal with cellulite, and many women end up spending a great deal of money to prop up their emotional selves. Many experts tell us that we need to learn to accept our bodies for what they are and be proud of who we are. Cellulite makes that process just a little bit more difficult.

~ Menyukat Bahan-bahan ~

Ada pelbagai cara menyukat bahan-bahan. Ibu-ibu kita dahulu menyukat bahan dengan gelas, cawan, mangkuk, sudu makan dan ada juga yang main agak-agak saja atau cukup basah. Apabila buat kuih atau kek sekejap jadi dan sekejap tak jadi. Maklumlah, alat penyukatnya berubah-ubah, hari ni pakai cawan, esok lusa pakai mangkuk pula. Dengan kemudahan moden sekarang, pelbagai alat dicipta untuk memudahkan anda menimbang atau menyukat bahan-bahan. Ada penimbang digital, penimbang jarum (spring) atau pun cawan yang standard. Semuanya ada dijual di kedai bahan kek ataupun di pasaraya biasa. Di Malaysia, kita menggunakan timbangan metrik menggantikan timbangan paun (lb) dan aun (oz). Tetapi jika kita rajin melayari internet, kita boleh dapati resipi-resipi orang Amerika banyak yang menggunakan cawan (cup) dan paun. Memang bermasalah jika kita hendak mencuba resipi mereka kerana terpaksa menukarkannya kepada gram. Berikut adalah carta ringkas sukatan imperial dan juga metrik.

1 oz - 25 gm
9 oz - 250 gm
16oz (1 lb) - 450 gm
2 lb 4 oz - 1 kg
1 cawan mentega - 250 gm
1 cawan gula - 250 gm
1 cawan tepung - 125 gm
2 cawan tepung - 250 gm
1 camca kecil/teh - 5 gm

Tip Menyukat Bahan :

1. Adalah lebih mudah dan tepat jika menggunakan penimbang digital. Saya menggunakan jenama Tanita dan telah digunakan selama lebih 5 tahun tanpa sebarang masalah. Memang berbaloi membelinya walaupun harganya agak mahal.

2. Apabila menyukat tepung, gemburkan atau ayakkan ia dahulu baru disukat atau ditimbang. Jika menyukat dengan cawan, jangan ditekan tepung itu kerana ia akan menjadi padat dan sukatannya telah berlebihan. Ratakan permukaannya dengan pisau. Ia tak sepatutnya disukat membumbung.

3. Sudu/camca kecil atau sudu/camca teh, sukatannya hampir sama tetapi sudu makan dan sudu besar ianya berlainan

.4. Cecair boleh disukat dengan gram atau dengan mililiter (ml). 100 gm air dengan 100 ml air adalah lebih kurang sama sukatannya.

~ Easy bread recipe ~

Ingredients :

To makes 2 loaves:

* 7 tsp dry yeast granules
* 2 cups boiling water
* 4 tsp honey
* 2 cups cold water
* 2¾ cups wholemeal flour
* 2¾ cups white flour (choose high grade or bakers flour if possible)
* 4 tbsp pumpkin seeds
* 2 cups sunflower seeds
* 3 tsp salt


1. Firstly preheat your oven to just 180ºF (80ºC) and grease and line two 5 x 9 inch bread tins with baking paper.

2. In a bowl, combine the honey with the boiling water and stir to dissolve. Next, add the cold water and yeast and put to one side for 10 minutes so the yeast can activate (you will see some ‘froth’ form on the surface of the water).

3. Give the yeast mixture a good stir and then add the wholemeal and white flour, sunflower seeds and salt and mix until it is evenly combined. The mixture will be a very ‘loose’ and wet but don’t worry.

4. Now divide the wet mixture between your two prepared bread tins, spreading the dough so it is even distributed. Next, sprinkle the pumpkin seeds on the top of the dough. To ensure that the bread rises evenly and cooks without splitting, run a sharp knife through the top of each loaf in 4 or 5 places.

5. Place your loaves into your preheated oven and bake for just 20 minutes at 180ºF (80ºC), then turn the oven temperature up to 410ºF (210ºC) and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. To check if your bread is cooked simply tap each loaf – they should sound hollow. Turn the loaves out onto a cooling rack while they are still hot and leave them to cool.

~ Homemade bagel recipe ~

Ingredients :

4 cups bread flour

1 Tbls sugar

1 tsps salt

1 Tbls vegetable oil

2 tsps instant yeast

1-1/4- 1-1/2 cups of warm water.

Method :

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Knead well.
The dough should feel stiff, but add the extra water if it's really stiff, or you can't get all the dry flour incorporated.

Plop the dough down onto the counter, and knead for about ten minutes, or until the dough is uniform and smooth.

Cut the dough into 8 equal sized balls, and let rest for 10-20 minutes.

Pre heat your oven to 425.

Now, take each of the dough balls and using two hands, roll it into a little snake on the counter. When the snake is longer than the width of your two hands, wrap it around your dominant roiling hand. The dough rope should be wrapped so the overlapping ends are together at your palm, near the start of your fingers. Now take the two overlapping ends, and use your palm to squish/roll these two ends together. Once the dough is fused, you should have a perfectly circular bagel-to-be!

Let your bagels rest on the counter for about 20 minutes, and meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil, and grease a large baking tray lightly. You can just rub a splash of vegetable oil and rub it around.

After the 20 minute wait, your bagels will start to look puffy, and it's time to get them boiling! Add them as many at a time as you can to your boiling water without crowding them. Boil for about a minute, turn them over, and boil for another minute. Take them out a let dry for a minute and then place them on your oiled baking tray. Repeat until all the bagels are boiled.

Add the tray to the oven, and after 10 minutes, flip the bagels over, bake for another ten minutes; and they're done!

Let them cool for at least 20 minutes, get the cream cheese ready, and feast on what's got to be one of the best weekend brunch treats possible!

* You can add any toppings you like to these. To make sesame, onions, poppy seed, caraway etc. etc. bagels just have a dry plate ready with the seed or spice topping spread out on it. After the bagels have come out of the boiling water, place them face down onto the seeds, and then place the seed side up onto the baking tray. Bake and flip as for plain bagels.

( Add the beaten eggs into the cooled syrup,
then add a big pinch of custard powder and vanilla essence.
Do teh tarik motions on the mixture many times and keep it refrigerated as well. )

Pour the ingredients into a mixing bowl and start mixing them.
The dough has to “rubbed” as though you are massaging a person’s back.
Take note that the butter has to be slightly cold.
After the dough is done, it has to be refrigerated.

Line the tart moulds with the pastry (dough) by making a small ball,
then press it over the moulds.
Keep in mind that the pastry must not be too thin,
or the egg tart will break easily when done.

Take the egg mixture out from the fridge and do a couple of teh tarik motions again. Pour the egg mixture into the moulds, slightly more than 3 quarter full.
Bake them in oven for 25-30 minutes at 180°C.
To know whether the egg tarts are ready, shake the moulds slightly.
If the egg mixture is firm and the pastry is golden brown, it’s done!

Lastly, overturn the egg tarts in put into individual paper cups quickly. Serve!

Ingredients for dough :


Egg Tart :

How to treat Gastric trouble and Acidity? :-

Acidity can be a result of defective digestion or stress. It is the accumulation of liquid inside the cavity. It is a common problem; it may be associated with overeating, constipation, menstruation, food allergy and certain diseases.

Sleeping after meals doubles gas and acidity that increases burning and sour sensation.
Drink hot water after meals for easy digestion, it is also good for weight reduction.
Include ginger, mint leaves and garlic in your daily food. These are good for easy gas and acidity.

Reduce daily intake of coffee and tea. Drink enough water every day to keep you healthy.
Avoid eating sweets after the meals and stop drinking water after eating sweets.
Include fruits in your morning meal. Fibers and natural supplements help to retain energy and overcome acidity related problems of the stomach.

Avoid factors that make stress. Do not forget that stress is a reason for many diseases and controlling stress is enough for curing many diseases.

Avoid spicy foods, vinegar, black tea, chocolate etc. these are a reason for gas and acidity.
Drinking coconut water daily is good for gas and acidity

Eat vanilla ice cream or drink a glass of cold milk to get immediate relief from gas and acidity.

Take one piece of clove(bunga cengkih) and chew it slowly. This is a good way to give you relief from acidity within minutes.

Take a piece of ginger and chew it with little bit salt. This is good for immediate relief from gas and acidity

Avoid raw vegetable salads like onion, cabbage and radish. These are acidity generating vegetables.

* Flatulence (perut kembung)

Causes of Gastric Trouble:
The main cause of the disease is our faulty eating habits. Eating in hurry, eating at wrong time, talking during eating, excessive intake of water during eating and eating of more spicy food are the factors which increase the gastric trouble. Taking of more hot and more cold meal also help developing this condition. Tense and irritated mind is also a major cause of Gastric trouble.

After cleansing the bowels with lemon water enema, Mud pack and Hip bath may be taken. The food substances responsible for wind formation may be avoided and light and Sattvic food may be adhered to. Full concentration over meal may be given during eating and food should be masticated properly. Weekly fast may be kept.

Tips to remember in healing gastric :

1) the use of Apple cider vinegar as an aid or digestive. Apple cider vinegar can be taken as a dilution in a glass of water. One teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, consumed once in two days is useful in calming the inflamed gastric tract.

2) Drinking a good amount of water every day can help in sealing the sphincter muscle tightly over the stomach and cut down the risk of the gastric acid from refluxing up the throat.

3) Boil a little clove and garlic and drink it.

4) Drinking a glass of water with a little bit of baking soda mixed in it will provide almost instant relief.

5) Coconut water is known to be extremely beneficial when it comes to treating gastritis as it provides the stomach with the required amount of rest along with a replenishment of essential nutrients and vitamins. The stomach can actually be returned to a normal condition simply by drinking nothing but coconut water for a period of twenty four hours.

6) Fasting for a period of two or three days will help the stomach to rest and allow the toxic conditions causing any inflammation to subside.

~ Vitamin E ~

8 Great Ways That Vitamin E Helps the Skin :

Vitamin E helps the skin by protecting it from the sun, retaining the natural moisture of the skin, aiding in the absorption of vitamin A, fighting and preventing acne, fighting skin aging, treating sunburns, reducing the appearance of scars, and preventing skin cancer.

Vitamin E is well-known for its many health benefits. But, aside from promoting overall health, vitamin E also has many positive effects on the skin. That is why many beauty treatments and skincare items are infused with vitamin E. Some of the rich natural sources of this essential vitamin are grains, nuts, dairy products and natural oils like argan oil products and sunflower oil. Here are some ways that vitamin E can help your skin:

1) Protects the skin from the sun

Vitamin E offers protection from the sun. In fact, sunscreen lotions use vitamin E as a primary ingredient. Sunscreen lotions with vitamin E seal the skin's epidermis layer, thereby protecting it from the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun.

2) Retains the natural moisture of the skin

Vitamin E helps prevent skin dehydration and is effective in sealing in moisture in the skin. When skin is properly moisturized it looks radiant, youthful and healthy.

3) Aids in the absorption of vitamin A

Vitamin A is also essential for the body and can promote good eyesight and healthy skin. In fact, many skin treatments also have vitamin A as an ingredient. On the other hand, insufficient amounts of vitamin A can be harmful for the body, and vitamin E helps prevent the negative consequences of this deficiency by helping the body absorb and regulate vitamin A.

4) Fights and prevents acne

Vitamin E oil has profound effects on acne and blemishes. Some research has shown that vitamin E helps prevent acne and other skin breakouts. Additionally acne patients have claimed that acne lesions heal faster when vitamin E is applied topically on the skin.

5) Fights skin aging

Vitamin E is well-known to be a powerful antioxidant. It fights free radicals and detoxifies the body. Because of this, vitamin E is effective as an anti-aging treatment and helps fight the signs of skin aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. Taking vitamin E supplements of as little as 400 milligrams daily can have profound effects on your skin's texture and can decrease wrinkles and sun damage.

6) Treats sunburns

Vitamin E is calming and soothing for the skin. It is also popular for its anti-inflammatory properties. You can treat sunburns, darkened skin areas, dark spots and liver spots caused by sun exposure with vitamin E. Additionally, it is advisable to slather vitamin E oil onto the skin about 20 minutes before going out into the sun.

7) Reduces the appearnance of scars

Regularly using vitamin E oil will have positive effects on scars and stretch marks. Scars are caused by the formation of collagen on the skin and some experts explain that vitamin E helps decrease the strength of the collagen strands. Because of this, the scars become more pliable and easier to treat.

8) Prevents skin cancer

The potent antioxidant properties of vitamin E coupled with its sun protection properties make it effective for preventing skin cancer and severe skin damage.

Whether it's argan oil products or vitamin E supplements, it is a great idea to include vitamin E in one's diet, health and beauty routine.
