n Boost your T

he key to staying beautiful is easy and involves making just a few small tweaks to your routine. From smooth, radiant skin to manicured brows, here are 10 ways that will make you look – and feel – irresist-

ible.

BEAUTY TIP 1: EXFOLIATE It’s often hard to keep up with our skin. One minute we’re smothering it in moisturiser, then the next it’s back to being dull and flaky. To complement your moisturiser and ensure that your skin stays lovelier for longer, make sure you leave extra time to exfoliate daily. Skin continually produces new cells and, as the new cells appear, the dead ones tend to sit on top of the skin making it appear dry and dull. When this happens, there’s not much point in moisturising. Try buttering up after you’ve buffed the old cells off, and you’ll notice a drastic change.

2: HAVE SEX Getting down and dirty is the ultimate beauty booster. Just 15 minutes a day spent doing the deed leaves your cheeks flushed, your lips lusciously red and your skin glowing and beautiful. Studies have shown that regular romps in the bedroom increase blood flow and bring essential nutrients and oxygen to the skin, which flush out harmful toxins and make us appear younger. Plus, having someone run their fingers through your tresses can give it that gorgeous, mussed-up, fresh-out-of-bed look.

3: DITCH THE ALCOHOL AND CIGARETTES Drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes doesn’t do our skin any favours. Smoking allows a staggering 4000 toxic substances into the body with every puff, and too much alcohol causes skin to dry out and eyes to become puffy – not the best start for boosting your natural beauty. Quit smoking and only drink in moderation to improve your skin’s elasticity and reduce puffy eyes. This is a sure-fire way to make you look younger and more beautiful.

4: REST

– easy ways to boost your beauty.

The phrase “beauty sleep” is famous for a reason; sleep really does make you beautiful. During periods of deep sleep our cells renew themselves, and lack of sleep - or poor quality of sleep - leaves us looking and feeling a bit worse for wear. If you have trouble getting your beauty sleep, try and relax. Add a few drops of aromatherapy oils to your bath, try deep-breathing exercises and avoid caffeinated beverages before you head to bed.

8: WEAR MINERAL MAKE-UP

5: STRENGTHEN YOUR HAIR Keratin - a type of protein - is the key structural component of our hair and nails. By eating protein-rich foods we can reinforce the keratin in our hair to make it healthier and stronger. It’s not all about what you put on your hair, but what you put in your body, too. Dietician Dawn Jackson explains: “The foundation of all our new hair, skin, and nail growth is in the nutrients we eat.” So it’s a good idea to boost the natural protein in your hair by eating protein-rich foods such as eggs, nuts, seeds, shellfish and meat for stronger, healthier locks.

6: GROOM YOUR EYEBROWS Few things can change your look as quickly and drastically as nicely plucked brows. The right brow shape can really frame your face and complement your favourite features, while bushy brows distract attention away from your best features. There are many different ways of removing your brow hair too - plucking, threading, tweezing and waxing - just find the way that suits you best and you’re well on your way to being more beautiful in an instant.

7: HAVE MORE FRUIT, VEGES, AND WATER It’s a beauty tip that we’ve heard time and time again, but it’s true: we are what we eat, and being healthy on the inside makes us even more beautiful on the outside. This tip is pretty straight-forward; drink plenty of water to flush out harmful toxins in your skin and increase skin’s elasticity, get plenty of exercise to sweat out the toxins, and eat a good variety of fruit and vegetables for vital nutrients that will make your skin glow

Don’t clog your pores with a thick, heavy foundation that won’t allow your skin to breathe. Instead, opt for kinder ways to cover imperfections such as mineral makeup or BB creams. Most mineral powders even help to prevent spots and BB creams moisturise your skin and even out skin tone without clogging your pores.

9: GO FOR A BRISK WALK A brisk walk is an excellent way to boost your circulation and get beautiful glowing skin. Walking improves your sleep, enhances mental function and helps to counteract depression. This will all reflect in your complexion as you’ll appear happier and healthier. You might be able to get rosy cheeks from a pot of blusher, but you won’t get the beautifully natural glow of flushed, healthy skin using a makeup palette.

10: PROTECT YOUR SKIN It’s important to protect your skin whatever the weather, particularly if yours is sensitive. As temperatures dip throughout the winter, we are more likely to crank up the heating, which can have a detrimental impact upon our skin by drying it out and making it appear aged. Summer skin can be dried out too, causing it to look dry, dull and flaky. To help prevent dry skin, make moisturising a regular part of your routine. Flare-free skin makes us look and feel beautiful.

Beat beauty bu W

e can’t seem to get away from the constant stream of new beauty products out there that promise this, that and the other, yet we hear very little about what we shouldn’t be doing in terms of beauty. We’ve put together a list of beauty no-nos to save you from investing pointless time and money into beauty steps that make you look older. Stay looking youthful and beautiful by avoiding these mistakes:

BLUSHER ON THE APPLES OF YOUR CHEEKS We all love a subtle flush of just-pinched pink on our cheeks to keep us looking fresh, but don’t apply it to the apples of your cheeks. As we age, the skin on our cheeks tends to sag - and what quicker way to make you look

Treat yourself to a new you this year Bring in this advert to receive a free cut and blow wave with any colour service. Conditions Apply Valid until end of April

36 Beach Road, Ashburton 03-308-9127

older than to highlight this? Instead, focus on your cheekbones. Sweep blusher up towards your temples to create the illusion of a thinner face and more defined cheekbones.

TANNING BEDS AND SUNBATHING Yes, you look great with that gleaming tan and yes, it sure does make your teeth look whiter – but is it really worth the risk of skin cancer and ageing skin? We all know the risks associated with sunbeds and sunbathing, but it really is a huge beauty blunder to avoid if you’d like to stay looking youthful. Even if you’re only venturing into the garden to hang your washing out, make sure you apply sunblock. If you’re going for the bronzed goddess look, get it out of a bottle.


bungles and look LOOSE POWDER

Powder is great for setting make-up, adding light coverage and helping with oily skin. The problem is though, the dusty quality of loose powder dries out your skin and highlights any fine lines, a recipe for making you look instantly older. Opt for pressed powder instead; this will still blot away oil and provide light coverage, but you’re less likely to apply too much.

DARK LIPSTICKS Don’t channel your inner goth if you want to look younger. As we age, our lips tend to lose some of that youthful plumpness that we used to brighten with a pop of colour when we were younger. Dark colours accentuate thinner lips and can add years to how old you look. Opt for flattering hues such as pretty pinks and muted berry colours instead.

NEGLECTING YOUR BROWS If your brows are sparse, giving them a little TLC can take years off your age. Use a brow pencil, no more than one shade darker than your natural brow colour, to gently fill in any gaps. If you’d prefer a softer look, use a powder and an angled brush. This is a fail-proof way to take years off your age.

LONG, LIFELESS HAIR If your skin looks like it’s heading south, a long hairstyle will only accentuate this, particularly if your hair is limp and lifeless. Opt for an angled style that creates shape and volume around your face - layers are an excellent way to achieve this look. We aren’t suggesting that you start chopping your hair into a bob if you’d like to keep it long, but make sure you add definition around the face with some layers if you are keeping it long.

DEAL WITH STRESS We all know prolonged periods of stress are

bad for our looks, but rarely do we take this on board and do anything about it. Stress prevention is the golden rule for a youthful you, and while it’s good to feel stress under certain situations where you need to take action, too much can seriously age you. What better excuse to treat yourself to a massage.

SKIPPING THE PRIMER If you thought primer was only used for those odd DIY jobs around the house, think again. Primer works miracles with older skin, as it helps to smooth out any lines you have on your

face. It also provides a good surface for makeup application. This means your make-up will have something to hold on to and so, by the end of the day, you won’t look as smudged and abstract as a Picasso work.

LACKING MOISTURE Nothing screams “older lady” like dry, lacklustre skin. Invest in a good moisturiser that is suited to your skin type and use it as part of your morning and evening skincare routine to keep skin from looking dry and wrinkly. Healthy, hydrated skin is the most important step to keeping you looking beautiful and youthful.

GLITZY EYE MAKE-UP Once a woman gets to a certain age, glitzy eye makeup becomes a no-no. Anything too glam and shimmery around your eyes will draw attention to those laugh lines and powdered shadows will sit within your crinkles. If you’ve managed to reach your 40th birthday (we hope you partied like a wild thing) you might also find your eyelids have become slacker. Plain, light, matte shadows will help create a less droopy look and make your eyes look larger and more youthful. For more lifestyle news see www.realbuzz.com

health symptoms you

T

oothache shouldn’t be left untreated. Yes, that headache probably is just a headache and yes, maybe dizziness is just a side effect from a heavy night – until it’s not. Keep an eye on any unfamiliar health symptoms because what we think are common health problems may turn out to be much worse. Here are seven health symptoms you should never ignore:

Health symptom 1: Severe toothache Although many of us tend to experience tooth sensitivities when we tuck into our favourite icecream or enjoy a cold drink, if you’re experiencing more sensitivity than usual, you need to go for a cavity check. Severe toothache can indicate that your tooth’s nerve has become damaged; a common side-effect of rotting teeth. If you ignore this, you could end up with an infected nerve as the bacteria spread around your mouth. A filling will solve the problem if the nerve hasn’t already become infected, but a root canal may be necessary if the infection has spread. Seek attention from your dentist as soon as possible.

should never ignore

2: Daily bloated stomach in women It’s not uncommon to feel like you’ve overindulged every now and again, particularly before your period. If you notice gas, severe abdominal pain, difficulty eating or all of the aforementioned daily, it’s worth paying a visit to a medical professional, who can either put your mind at ease by giving you the all-clear or refer you to a gynaecologist.

3: Intense and sudden headaches Sudden headaches that feel like no pain you’ve ever experienced before could be a sign of a ruptured aneurism – a burst blood vessel in the brain that requires immediate attention. Other symptoms that go hand-in-hand with a worryingly bad headache include chest pain, exhaustion and loss of vision, which could be signs of cardiac cephalalgia or meningitis. If you’ve been experiencing intense headaches that appear out of nowhere, make sure you seek advice from your doctor to catch any potential health problems as soon as possible.

4: Chest pain Many of us suffer from chest pain every now and again, particularly if we’ve enjoyed a delightfully spicy dish the previous evening. How do you know when chest pain becomes something more serious than just plain heartburn though? The answer is that you probably don’t without seeking medical attention. However, pressure on your chest - often described as feeling like an elephant sitting on you - or upper abdominal pain are just two of many signs of a heart attack. If you’re ever in any doubt, the doctor is always the best person to see.

5: Excessive body hair on women Although men and women grow hair all over their bodies, it’s unusual for women to sprout coarse hairs on their face, chest, stomach or around their nipples. If you find hair in places that aren’t typical of the female body, visit your doctor as this may be a sign of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. PCOS tends to develop when there is an imbalance of female hormones and can lead to irregular periods and infertility.

6: Unexplained weight loss Although you may diet and exercise in a conscious bid to lose weight, if you start losing more weight than you usually would or you’ve been losing weight without exercising or dieting, this could be a sign of something more serious. Unexplained weight loss can indicate an illness is manifesting itself in your body and may be a sign of diabetes, malnourishment, or a number of other dangerous health problems. All cases of unexplained weight loss should be evaluated by a medical professional.

7: Erectile dysfunction Erectile dysfunction can ruin more than just your sex life. Other negative side effects commonly associated with the problem of not being able to achieve or maintain an erection include depression and an increased risk of heart disease. Men are notorious for ignoring health symptoms: “Why do I need to visit the doctor about my broken wrist? Just stick some duct tape around it and I’ll be fine”. Though it’s great to look on the bright side of life, you must take any health symptoms seriously. For more lifestyle news see www.realbuzz.com

Captivating c C

umin is a popular spice particularly in Mexican, North African and Indian cuisines; it’s one of the spices that gives dishes a hot, peppery and spicy kick. It is also one of the main components of curry powder and a number of hot spice mixtures including garam masala and baharat, the North African hot spice blend that is used as a rub or flavour for lamb and other meat or poultry dishes.

YOU do it yourself

insulate

Time to

W

ith winter well and truly on its way, it is time to think about how warm your home will be this winter. A well-insulated home means more warmth, increased comfort and lower heating bills. And if you follow the right steps, putting in your own insulation is actually pretty straight forward, making it an ideal DIY job. It is estimated about half of all New Zealand homes (around 700,000) have insufficient ceiling or underfloor insulation. It is easiest to start with your ceiling when you think about insulation, followed by underfloor. Ceiling insulation is generally the easiest, cheapest and most effective insulation to install in your home. Because warm air rises, making your home easier and cheaper to heat starts with good insulation above. If you have an accessible roof space, it is easy to see if you have any insulation. If there isn’t any, then you need to get some, or if there is some insulation up there, you may simply need a top-up layer if it doesn’t cover the whole ceiling or you can see gaps. You may need to remove the old insulation and start again with a new layer if it is wet or damp in areas or has been damaged by rodents or birds. If your insulation is not below the level of your joists, a blanket type insulation is ideal as it rolls out over what is existing. Choosing the right level of insulation is done using a measure called ‘R-value’. These values measure the ability of the insulation to resist heat flow or sound. The higher the value, the greater the effectiveness of the insulation. Most retailers stock a full range of R-values and colder areas need a higher R-value. To work out how much insulation you need, calculate the m2 area you want to insulate. Use the total m2 area to select the right number of packs required. To calculate, draw a plan of

the outside of your home and measure the perimeter of each area to be insulated in metres, multiply the length by the width to give the total area in m2. Select the correct insulation and the correct Rrating for the area you live before you calculate how many bales of insulation you need. Coverage area per bale varies with different types and grades of insulation. Roof cavities and underfloors are dusty and glass wool insulation can irritate your skin, so wear protective clothing. When you are ready to install, place the packs onto the roof area and start from the farthest point from the manhole and work back. Insulation should be cut slightly oversize for a friction fit. If it is too small it will leave gaps and cut too big it compresses the insulation material, reducing its effectiveness. Leave a 25mm minimum clearance around vents, chimneys and downlights. Do not cover light transformers as this can become a fire hazard.

When installing ceiling insulation, remember to leave a 25mm minimum clearance around vents, chimneys and downlights.

Underfloor insulation Underfloor insulation is also a relatively inexpensive way to help make your home warmer, and in homes with accessible underfloor spaces, it’s relatively easy to do. If there is no insulation under your floor, either between or stapled to the underside of the

joists, then you need to get some. You may have to either repair what is already there, or remove the old insulation and replace it with new material if it has worked loose, or doesn’t sit hard against the underside of the floor boards, doesn’t extend under all of the

floor, has gaps in it, or bits missing, is foil and has taped seams that have come undone, or if it has been damaged. There are three different types of underfloor insulation. Foil types which work on reflection, fibre types and polystyrene types that work on

the principle of mass, that is trapped air. The different products bring different qualities to your home. Polythene down first on the ground helps stop any rising damp and makes installing insulation a lot more pleasant. Foil insulation works as a convectional and radiant barrier. It has been difficult to get the best performance out of traditional foils due to building construction methods and strength of products, however there are some newer types on the market that offer better performance features. The main advantage of foil is that it stops rising damp and is great for working in tighter areas. Foils are installed in blanket format, making them easy to install but there is risk of electrocu-

tion in using them so need to follow the instructions carefully. The general rule with fibre forms of insulation is that the thicker the product, the better it works. The most popular form of fibre underfloor insulation is polyester. The key advantage of fibre types of insulation is that they allow the floor to ‘breathe’ while still offering great thermal qualities. Precut products are available for fitting between your joists or alternatively blanket format is also available for attaching underneath the joists. They are not particulary suitable for high wind zones or where you have a rising damp issue but they do have a very long life. Polystyrene underfloor insulation is great for

dampening sound reverberation in wooden floorboards and also acts as a partial vapour barrier. It is available in a wide variety of widths (360mm, 410mm, 440mm, 470mm and 560mm) and is installed between your joists with each piece cut to size and friction-fit up in place. Many of the guidelines for ceiling insulation can be followed when installing underfloor insulation. Joist spacings under the floor can often be uneven, so you will need to keep an eye on your measurements and cut accordingly. Unlike the friction fit of ceiling insulation, underfloor insulation is fitted a little differently. Each piece of insulation needs to be cut at

least 30mm wider than the distance between the joist faces, and remember to take care when you cut. Slip the insulation into place, pushing one edge against the face of the joist and up to the underside of the floor. As you push the other side into place against the opposite joist, the edge will fold down the face of the joist. This method helps ensure there are no gaps between the insulation and the joists. If you’ve cut a little too big and the folded section protrudes beneath the bottom of the joist, just trim it back. Take care not to cover over wiring with insulation and cut insulation around plumbing, pipes or sub-framing.

Warren Gentle

loves his

hot rods

B

y his own admission, Ashburton’s Warren Gentle was “a bit of a larrikin” in his youth. The 54-year-old moved to Ashburton from his home town of Gore in 2004 with wife Isobel and their two children, and in following years other family members followed. Today he is a committed family man, but plans to get back into owning a hot rod at some stage in the future, even though those very same cars have been the source of some trouble in the past. He learned to drive when he was 17, but was actually on the roads from the age of 15, in a Mark II Zephyr, with a hot motor ofcourse. He bought his own car when he was 17, a 1966 PC Cresta, which could reach 138 miles per hour. “That’s the reason I lost my license,” he said. Although he wasn’t going that fast, it was instead 93 miles per hour, up Gore’s main street. “The cops took exception to it.” They were also not too impressed when the speeding driver got out of his vehicle and he tripped as his feet became tangled in the seatbelt. They soon found out this was due to the fact that he was drunk. Mr Gentle is the first to admit in those days he was all “testosterone and bull…….”, but overall he has no regrets. After two years and three months off the roads he sat his license again and he was soon driving a 1966 Chevrolet Impala, from which he removed the 283 cubic inch engine and

EEVERYONE HAS A STORY BY SUSAN SANDYS B replaced it with a 350 engine. He sold the car, but kept the engine, and put it in his next car, a 1952 Chevrolet. It was yellow with red flames streaming along the body work, something which was initially a source of embarrassment for his daughter Francine. It was the 1990s and Warren would run her to intermediate school in the car. “I had to drop her down the street from the school so her friends wouldn’t see it,” he said. But her friends ended up spotting her anyway, and they proceeded to tell her just how cool the car was. “So the next time I had to drop her outside the school gate.” Francine is today 32 with two children of her own. She and her partner and children followed her dad to Ashburton shortly after he and Isobel and their two children Keegan and Yazmin, today aged 12 and 16, moved here. “They have a really close knit bond with Francine’s kids,” Mr Gentle said.

Isobel’s mother also moved to the town, from Hokitika. What Mr Gentle and his wider family liked about the town was its availability of jobs and its good climate. Mr Gentle works in the boning room at Ashburton Meat Processors. He initially worked for CMP Canterbury when he first moved here. In Gore he first worked at as a shop assistant before in later years as a miller at the former Fleming and Company milling. Warren has found that here in Ashburton his surname is a rare one, not like in Gore where there are many Gentles, many of those related to his father. He and Isobel say they do get comments about the name. “All the time,” Isobel said. “People say ‘He must be gentle then’.” It was mainly at St David’s Union Church where she volunteers in the children’s church that many people commented, the name being similarly interesting as another parishioner’s surname of Love.
