Five (5) fastest healing piercings

Hello everyone! If you are interested in getting a piercing, there is a lot of thought that needs to go into your decision.  Will it hurt?  How long will it take to heal?  These are just two of the many questions you might have.  Besides the initial pinch, there's one main downside to getting pierced:  the healing process .   Cartilage piercings  are very popular.  Cartilage is a connective tissue that is harder than the skin but softer than the bones.   Any ear piercing other than lobe piercing is a cartilage piercing.  Each cartilage piercing has a different name based on the area of cartilage that is being pierced.  Some of these piercings are the snug, upper helix, anti-helix, conch, orbital, daith, and tragus.  If you want more information about ear piercings,  click here !  The most common cartilage piercing is the helix piercing.

Body hair removal

Hello everyone! Methods of hair removal have been practised in virtually all human cultures since at least the Neolithic era.  These hair removal methods have varied in different times and areas, but shaving was and still is the most common method.   Body hair has long shaped gender dynamics, served as an indicator of social class and defined notions of femininity and the “ideal body”.  Today, most women feel like they have to remove body hair as if they have no other option.  There's something unsettling about that, however, perceptions are slowly shifting.    Removing body hair or growing it out is a personal choice! If you choose to remove it there are two types of hair removal:  depilation (surface removal by shaving, dissolving), or  epilation  (removal of the entire hair, such as waxing or plucking).  I’ve written various posts about this topic in the past, today’s post is a roundup of my  hair removal related blog posts.  This way you can find them

Six (6) teas I always have in my pantry ☕ 🍵

Hello everyone! As I told you in my previous post: Effective ways to treat cellulite , I don't like the smell of coffee.  As a matter of fact, I never drank a sip of coffee in my life!  Conversely, I do love teas; I try to drink 3 to 4 cups a day.  But which teas or tisanes you might ask - there are so many to choose from.   True  teas  come from the Camellia sinensis plant, while a herbal infusion , or  tisane  is any plant-derived drink other than true tea.  From berry blends to green tea to Earl Grey, the many versions of chai, black, breakfast, and whatever else.  There are so many  options. Healthy teas are nothing new to the world, but culturally, many of us have forgotten how to use them.  Irrespective of how we feel about holistic medicine, the power of tea is undeniable. These are the 6 teas I always have in my pantry and a little information about their benefits … Green Let me start with one of the most well-known teas.  Essentially,
