Editor’s Letter

ON VALENTINE’S DAY WE CELEBRATE SELF-LOVE

W

ith every day that brings us closer to Valentine’s Day, love fills the air and the most dominant talk among people is around candlelit dinners and rekindling the sparks of romance. You switch on your TV and all the movies are about couples celebrating their love, and this has left me thinking where does this leave the single ladies on the day were everyone celebrates with their significant other. Love is a universal language, and nothing beats the feeling of being loved, desired, and appreciated. But is it only through relationships that we can feel loved?

My life philosophy has always been summed up in self-love; it is simply the key to everything. And for this exact reason, this Valentine’s issue is dedicated to every single woman who’s in search for love. It is about time every woman takes this day as an opportunity to celebrate her self-worth, to dig deeper in her soul and appreciate the beauty within and to heal herself emotionally. Love yourself enough to give a deaf ear to all the self-sabotaging negative talk that overwhelms your mind. Stop setting all the blame on yourself for being single, stop thinking it is all your fault that you are on your own. You are simply single because you haven’t met the man who’s fascinated by who you are, even with all your flaws and imperfections. On Valentine’s Day, promise yourself not to settle for less. Never allow your flaws to scare you of being on your own till you find the man who appreciates you for who you are; or I’d rather say till he finds his way to your heart! Don’t settle to fill the emptiness, cherish your own company and trust me, you’ll be surprised by the many things you yet have to discover in yourself. Celebrate who you are, appreciate who you are, and before you dedicate all the love and energy to the wrong person, better dedicate this love to you. It all begins and ends with self-love. Only when you love yourself truly and deeply enough, will everything else fall in place.

Tangled wires, spirals and hoops, are all fused with the jewelry to become an artistic statement about the hold technology has over the human race.

NATURAL REMEDIES TO WHITEN YOUR TEETH Baking Soda & Lemon This is known as one of the most effective remedies that can give amazing results. The chemical reaction of these two ingredients together work miracles in whitening your teeth naturally. Mix a couple of teaspoons of baking soda and add to them a sufficient amount of lemon juice till you form a paste. With a good amount of the mixture on the toothbrush, apply and brush as you normally do and leave for one minute. Use this remedy only once a month as frequent use can affect your teeth enamel.

Charcoal

Turmeric

A very simple method to whiten your teeth and is totally hassle free. Charcoal is an absorbent substance that removes all the toxins that leave your teeth yellowish. Just dab a wet toothbrush on charcoal powder. Brush your teeth slightly and gently without rubbing or scratching hard. Leave the charcoal on your teeth for three minutes then brush clean and watch your teeth getting instantly whiter.

Don’t let that yellow color of turmeric scare you away, because surprisingly it will whiten your teeth. The good thing about turmeric is it being too gentle on your teeth and doesn’t cause any damage to your teeth enamel. All you’ll need is a quarter teaspoon of turmeric and mix it with few drops of water to make a paste. Brush your teeth gently and leave for about five minutes. Wash your teeth thoroughly to make sure there are no turmeric grains stuck between your teeth.

Coconut Oil Oil pulling has been recently known as an effective method that effectively whitens your teeth. It is as basic as swishing oil in your mouth to get rid of any plaque or bacteria in your mouth. Coconut oil also helps in reducing inflammation and treats bleeding gum. Warm a teaspoon of coconut oil – incase solidified- until it liquefies. Swish the oil in your mouth for 15 minutes then wash and brush your teeth normally. Repeat this remedy every day preferably in the morning. 18 | FEBRUARY 2018

Everything You Need To Know About

Body Contouring

H 20 | FEBRUARY 2018

BY: DR. OMAR SOLIMAN

aving the ideal body has always been everyone’s target over centuries; one that is healthy, radiant and fit. Diet and exercise, supported with proper sleep, are still the most reliable and sustainable choices to attain that goal. Sometimes, even with religious calorie counting, people can have pesky areas of stubborn fat. Love handles, muffin tops or the thigh gaps are all areas of frustration and major concerns for many. This is what has led to the vastly increasing high demand for body contouring procedures.


Back in the days, solutions for these irritating concerns about the body figure meant paying a visit to the plastic surgeon for a surgical intervention for fat reduction such as liposuction.

workout after the procedure for the best outcomes. Again, multiple sessions maybe needed and the results are observed 3 - 4 months after.

LOW LEVEL LASER TREATMENTS: Today, science has a lot to offer to help melt that fat away. New modalities like Radio frequency, Cryotherapy and laser treatments have proven themselves to be reliable and efficient in treating excess fat with noninvasive, zero downtime procedures. How most of these different techniques work, depends on some basic facts about the fat under your skin or subcutaneous adipose tissue. Adipocytes, or fat cells, are temperature sensitive, at least more sensitive than all of the surrounding tissue. Targeting that specific layer of fat with an energy delivering device will result in visible fat loss. The energy delivered must be precise and controlled for the best results.

CRYOLYPOLYSIS: This technique relies on freezing the fat causing their destruction. The process involves having well selected applicators creating a vacuum for the fat freezing it for 30 to 60 minutes. It will feel cold in the beginning but after a while the area is numbed resulting in painless procedures. This must be followed by massaging the treated area and the patient is encouraged to massage at home. Patients will typically notice results after 3 months bearing in mind that multiple sessions may be needed.

“Applicator selection and placement is paramount to success” RADIOFREQUENCY: This energy modality has been used for many purposes over the last 75 years. Radiofrequency depends on heat to destroy the fat cells. Deeper penetrating devices will result in better fat loss. It has a very high safety profile and sessions can last anywhere between 15 minutes to 90 minutes. The procedure feels like a massage with intense heat and no pain should be felt. People continue their day normally. In our practice, we encourage a good

Lasers can also be used for fat reduction! Lasers rely on heat like radiofrequency to target the fat. Wavelengths of light between 532 nm and 635 nm have been shown to improve fat directly and indirectly by altering the expression of the appetite hormone, leptin. Multiple sessions might be needed and the results will show in a few months.

MESOTHERAPY: This is a controversial treatment modality largely because it is difficult to identify what is being injected. This technique involves having multiple injections into the problematic fat with the target of destroying the fat cells and/or rupture of the membrane. Approved injections contain the materials “Phosphatidylcholine” and “Deoxycholate” (PPC/DC). There might be some pain associated with the series of injections in the areas that need to be treated and multiple sessions are required.

There is no substitute to sensible eating and leading a healthy lifestyle. Noninvasive modalities typically require multiple treatment sessions and the final results will appear after 2 - 4 months. Side effects include redness of the area that can last a few hours at most, slight discomfort and uneven fat reduction. Always ask what is being injected in your body in cases of mesotherapy. People who have unrealistic expectations about the outcomes of these procedures are not good candidates for them, neither are patients who think that noninvasive fat reduction treatments are an alternative to a good diet. There is no “Best Treatment” when it comes to body contouring. People will invariably respond to different treatments in different time frames if at all. Have realistic expectations and talk to your certified doctor about which option works best for you!

Interview

YASMINE GHAITH

A Journey of Hope, Faith, and Invincibility

B

ack in the days when we were young, we used to hear stories about superheroes. We watched them in movies, we admired their strength and bravery, but in the back of our heads and as we matured up, we began to tell ourselves “this is only a fiction, those heroes don’t exist in our reality”. But today’s story isn’t about a fictional super hero; this is a story of a woman, a fighter, a warrior of hope and faith. A woman who began her career teaching kids and little did she know that her life will carry a powerful message to teach to adults as well. Through her spontaneity and genuineness, Yasmine Ghaith captures the hearts, setting an inspirational role model for every woman. Driven by hope and faith, she chose to take control of the turn of events instead of being controlled by them, just to prove to the world that miracles happen, and yes, super heroes exist for real.

24 | FEBRUARY 2018


1.FIRST, WE’D LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE INSPIRATIONAL STRONG WOMAN YOU ARE AS YOU’VE CAPTURED HEARTS OF EGYPTIANS WITH YOUR ROLE IN ‘HALAWET EL DONIA’? Let me begin by telling you that I have never considered or planned to start acting at any point in my life. I’ve graduated from Faculty of Mass Communications; however I didn’t work in the field of Media. I was a teacher for eight years and at some point I created my own fashion line. My life was totally away from the spotlights of fame, until one day my life took a totally unexpected turn, and that’s when I’ve found out that I was diagnosed with cancer. It is strange how things change in the instant, the mere instant; yet at the end of the day it’s your choice how you can make use of that change. We don’t have control over our destiny, but we are the only ones who can control how to respond to it. That’s why I decided to blog about my journey and here’s where the story has begun. 2.SO, HOW DID YOU GET THIS ROLE AND WHAT WAS YOUR TAKE ON ACCEPTING IT, ESPECIALLY THAT IT TELLS YOUR STORY AGAINST CANCER? It was a mere coincidence. When I began blogging my experience, every word sincerely reflected how I felt deep within and this is why my words were heartfelt by many people. Day by day, my posts on Facebook were massively shared. Then one day, I received a phone call from Mohamed Mashish, the producrer of ‘Halawet el Donia’ proposing the idea of taking the role of Heba and in his own words he told me “The positive message you are sending is reaching thousands of people, and it is about time it reaches

FEBRUARY 2018 | 25


millions”. Even though I had no acting experience, never had I for a moment hesitated to accept the role. It was a dream that my story would reach millions of people to help inspire, support, and make a difference in peoples’ lives, even if it was just one person. My secret formula was using positive affirmations on daily basis to give myself confidence telling myself “I’ll be a confident actress; I’ll be a really good one” I even recorded them and listened to them day and night. When I first stood in front of the camera, I felt tensed and nervous, then suddenly as we began to shoot, everything flowed so smoothly and spontaneously. It just felt so right and was the best distraction that kept my spirit up during my treatment. 3.WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BLOG ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE? Well, I’ve watched a documentary for Louise Hay, a motivational speaker and author. A strong woman who has struggled throughout her life, emotionally and physically, and has undergone many hardships that would break any human being, yet in the middle of this all, she fought bravely and has turned her life to a healing lesson to many people. It did inspire me then that I want to be like this woman. I want to share my story, I want to make a change in people’s life, I want to spread positivity. I took it from there and ever since, I’ve never stopped writing. 4.THROUGH ALL THE HARD TIMES WHAT WAS YOUR SOURCE OF STRENGTH AND SUPPORT THAT KEPT YOU GOING? When I first knew I was diagnosed 26 | FEBRUARY 2018

with breast cancer I was overwhelmed by feelings of despair and hopelessness, even anger. It did hit me so hard how my whole life has changed in just three days. Amid those feeling of despair; fear takes over one’s mind and heart. But just as strong as those feelings were, one thing has always remained stronger and more superior; the survival instinct. I looked at my son, who was only four years old then, and I was just twenty-nine and I thought; I want to live, for myself, for my son. I got a hold on myself and I decided to fight this battle, with hope, faith and strength. I began to seek support and help from a life coach, and I read more

about breast cancer, because I also wanted to spread awareness on it. 5.WHAT WAS YOUR BIGGEST PARENTING CHALLENGE? The biggest challenge was in trying to explain all this to my son; especially he was too young to grasp what’s happening. Before I began with my treatments, we sat down and talked then I told him “Mommy is a bit sick and not feeling well. I’ll be better but my doctor told me that my medicine will be your hugs and kisses and telling me that you love me” and ever since this moment he is showering me with his love. It was hard to explain to him many things,


especially when my hear began to lose my hair. I started to show him pictures of celebrities in short haircuts suggesting having a similar one but again because he was too young to understand he wasn’t fine. I began to walk around the house with a beanie and by time he began to adapt with the whole situation. 6.HOW DID THIS WHOLE JOURNEY CHANGE YOU? People say everything happens for a reason, but sometimes when it comes to a real tough battle, your mind at the beginning may not comprehend the real reason why. There have been moments when I’ve thought to myself why me? Why me at this very young age? I felt that all the odds were against me and couldn’t believe that any good can come out of this. I knew there’s no choice but to accept the situation and to make peace with destiny. When life gives you a real tough test, you begin to discover new things about yourself. The pain I went through, be it physical, emotional or psychological has drained me at times but it also made me the strong person I am today. I learned what it means to have faith, and to appreciate the smaller and simpler things in life, and most importantly you get to feel the love and support of your family and close friends. I have asked myself many times, if it’s real that everything happens for a reason, what is the reason behind this tough lesson? But my strong faith gave me the answer, and that is to keep sending a message of hope and faith to everyone who’s fighting their own battles differently. 7.WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU ARE TRULY PASSIONATE ABOUT? I love all forms of arts. It began by

drawing at a very young age, then I discovered a passion for fashion designing as well as vwriting. Then here I am now, discovering a new passion for acting and planning to continue with it.

will it mean you will forget about the important people in your life. But do yourself a favor and create some quality time for yourself, live and enjoy life with all your heart. Be happy no matter what.

8.SINCE YOU PLAN TO CARRY ON WITH ACTING, TELL US ABOUT A ROLE YOU’D LIKE TO PLAY? Without a second thought, I’d love to play the biography of Louise Hay.

10.IF YOU ARE GOING TO SEND A MESSAGE TO WOMEN ALL OVER THE WORLD WHAT WOULD IT BE? Hope! Never underestimate the power of hope. No matter how hard life gets, and how tough the battle you’re fighting, it is through hope that miracles happen.

9.DEFINE SELF-LOVE FROM YOUR OWN PERSPECTIVE It is confidence, faith, and deciding you deserve to live happily. It is ok to be selfish at times, it is fine to keep everything aside for a while and focus on yourself, and never

11.AND FINALLY, WHAT IS THE MOTTO YOU LIKE TO LIVE BY? Be happy! Live your life to the fullest. FEBRUARY 2018 | 27

Ways To Maximize Space With Room Dividers

D

BY: HANAN MARWAN

ividers preserve the essence of an open space plan while enjoying a fair share of privacy. When talking about room dividers, people usually picture a huge space divided by curtains or screens. When in fact, they can serve in dividing rooms use to maximize space and maintain flexibility with a sense of openness. In compressed spaces, a freestanding closet can act as a divider between the living room and the bedroom for example.

30 | FEBRUARY 2018


Just imagine living in a rental; you are likely unable to make permanent structural changes to your space or don’t want to spend that much on a temporary living space. In this case, nothing is more appealing than dividers, to carve out designated areas that function differently. Especially since they add a sense of decor to the space. After all, it’s not a bare solid wall.

Let go of traditional solutions and invent your own. Create your own folding screens out of weathered wooden doors and windows. Fix a mirror against a narrow thin wall to give the illusion of a freestanding one; or create a pony wall if your confident with your DIY skills. Your bed’s headboard, a largely spread bookshelf, or sliding doors are all perfect divider ideas. A divider wall can be made of a various set of materials, hence can be of different forms.

SIGNS YOUR BODY IS CRYING FOR VITAMIN D

whenever we notice any health issues, we link them to various reasons usually overlooking vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D plays a vital role in our body’s several systems and if your intake isn’t sufficient for your body you’ll begin to notice several health problems.

What are the symptoms of vitamin D deficiency? • Hair Loss: Despite the fact that hair loss can be a cause of various issues like stress or anemia, Vitamin D deficiency has been one of the main causes linked to hair loss. • Bone Weakness: Vitamin D plays a vital role in calcium absorption and bone density. Deficiency in Vitamin D can increase the risk of fractures and bone pain. • High blood pressure: Vitamin D is important for heart health as it helps regulate the blood pressure so individuals who have a lack in Vitamin D are more likely to suffer from high blood pressure. • Depression: Researches have found that vitamin D affects the level of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is responsible for the happiness feelings. • Fatigue: Among many people who suffer from fatigue and tiredness, a very few can link it to vitamin D deficiency and it is usually overlooked. If you complain of daytime fatigue consult your doctor on taking vitamin D supplements.

3 Ways to beat Vitamin D deficiency

TREATMENT

One way to avoid Vitamin D Deficiency is to take Vitamin D supplements but make sure to check your blood pressure and to consult your doctor.

ORANGE JUICE AND MILK

Orange juice contains a good amount of Vitamin D that will benefit the body. Dairy products and especially the milk is a good source of vitamin D.

SUNLIGHT

Direct exposure to sunlight can actually help in increasing the amount of vitamin D entering the body, but make sure not to spend so much time in direct sunlight as this can cause skin cancer.

Time To Fall In Love With Yourself ! BY: JULIE-ANN ODELL

I

n the month of Valentine’s, start treating yourself like someone you love.

The number one relationship that determines the quality of all other relationships in your life is the one you have with yourself, and yet many people cannot understand the concept of self-love. They seem to believe that they are not allowed to put themselves first for fear of being labeled selfish. However, whether you want to land your dream job, or find your soul mate, it all comes down to self-love; as what you want from the outside world you have to be first from the inside.

38 | FEBRUARY 2018

Loving yourself is a continual process that is not always easy. Some days you might feel like you are your own best champion. Other days, the self-love journey can feel nonexistent, and negative ideas can pop up out of nowhere. This is when it’s time to send away the voice of the inner critic and start removing self-sabotaging behaviors. Somewhere along life’s journey we started doubting ourselves and chose to believe the negative stories we were told growing up. Somebody should pull us all aside at about age 25 and tell us that we don’t have to keep replaying the old thought patterns. Instead, we can rewire our thoughts to be

loving, positive and empowering and send the negative self-talk away. Our brains are one of the most powerful tools on the planet. When you know that you have the power to manage and change every thought, you can retrain your mind to think in ways that foster positive emotions. Become aware of your choices and see how you allow your mind to perform acts of self-sabotage: Self-Doubt says, “I won’t get that job. Why would they hire me?” Self-Love says, “You’ve earned this job. You’re passionate about it and you can bring something unique to the team.” Both are talking to you, it just depends on


who you choose to hear. Over time, as you make positive, mindful choices in your day to day life, the neural pathways in your brain actually physically rewire and form new patterns. This is the foundation for all your happiness, as now a recording of self-love starts playing and this influences whom you pick for a mate and how well you take care of your health, etc. The more love you have for yourself, the more you will attract people and circumstances to support your wellbeing. However, it isn’t something you can buy in a beauty makeover. Or, get by reading something inspirational. Or, bring into your life with a new relationship. Although they all feel gratifying, you can’t grow in self-love through these types of extrinsic experiences. Loving oneself intrinsically takes dedication and effort. So, let’s take a look at some steps in the right direction: Think Self-Love: Meditate and practice daily, positive affirmations. Be mindful and listen to your self-talk, so that you can lower the volume of your inner critic until it disappears. Choose to be your own best friend and stop punishing yourself for being imperfect. Remember you learn and grow from your mistakes. Practice Self-Love: Nourish yourself daily through healthy activities, like spending time in nature, eating healthy meals, regular exercise, proper sleep, and healthy social interactions. Create an organized and pleasing home environment. Schedule regular health check-ups. Make time for leisure activities and learn to say “no” to avoid over-committing. Absorb Self-Love: Invest in your education and gift yourself

with knowledge. Treat yourself to the wisdom gained from travel. Limited funds? Consider volunteer work or pooling resources with friends. Feel Self-Love: Book regular, relaxing massages. Release stress by taking a hot bath. Moisturize your skin and treat yourself to spa treatments. Know you are worth extraordinary care. Attract Self-Love: Bring the right people into your life. Get rid of “frenemies” and surround

yourself with people who inspire you and accept you for who you are. One of our greatest life lessons is learning how to fully accept and love ourselves, for only when we are truly aligned with our unique spirit, can we completely give and receive real love. It’s time! Take a vow and promise to love yourself each and every day, so that you can start celebrating your awesomeness.

Relationships

PUT YOURSELF FIRST! WHY SELFLOVE IS THE KEY TO FINDING TRUE LOVE

H

BY: SARAH KHALED

e or she is the most wonderful person you have met. Everything seems perfect, nearly too good to be true. You are truly happy. All of your friends love this new person in your life, aside from one or two who are always doubtful about this whole relationship. Time passes and everything is starting to plateau, even decline. Over time, the thoughts of those doubtful friends begin to resonate even more deeply. Still, something in you is crying for you to hold on, and not to give up just yet. Now you’ve realized that your whole existence is identified by your partner. It’s time to wake up!

42 | FEBRUARY 2018


person you want to be. Self-love is quite sexy; it leads to thorough self-awareness and more realistic aspirations of desires in a significant other. Create the opportunity to control what makes you happy and manage your personal contentment. By increasing your own self-love, you simultaneously strengthen your ability to connect with others. BETWEEN SELF-LOVE AND EGO Although it’s very easy to confuse self-love with ego, these two aren’t very different in their meanings either. Self-love is the respect you have for yourself, while ego is your understanding of your own importance. Self-love comes first when you believe in yourself and then comes your ego, which helps you realize just how important and special you are.

WHERE IS YOUR SELFLOVE? Healthy relationships occur between two people who are comfortable with themselves, in addition to one another. Love only develops after making your own happiness a top priority. Most of the people I meet are so scared to accept their flaws that they often fall in love for the wrong reasons. Be it battling loneliness or settling down to ease away pain, happiness means much more when it’s obtained as a result of working toward becoming the

THE SECRET POTION IN RELATIONSHIPS Do you know that feeling when you meet somebody and feel the chemistry right away? That instant, magnetic connection that’s overwhelming and difficult to ignore? You actually attract what you are. If you are awesome, you will attract awesomeness. If you are a mess, you will attract a mess. Work on your issues to become self-aware about where you have room for improvement. Strive to be in a relationship in which both parties have discovered themselves independently. Trying to find this clarity from someone else will lead to a downward spiral of inconsistent contentment. The status of “in a relationship” should not reflect a dependency on someone else, but rather, the power of togetherness. Be careful and picky with whoever has the honor to hold your heart. Make

your destiny a destination of choice, not a chance. Happiness is an individual state of mind that is in your possession. Hold the key to the lock of life, beware of love and do not allow access to unworthy individuals. NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, KEEP THESE TIPS IN MIND FOR YOUR SELFLOVE… 1. It takes time. What you need to do first is make up your mind and prepare yourself to become a new person. If it takes losing a few people who don’t respect you, so be it. 2. Be ready for vengeance. The people who strike back at your changes are always the people who were manipulating you and using you which led to your low self-esteem in the first place. Anyone who truly cares about you would be happy to see the new you. 3. Put your foot down. The easiest way for someone to use you or take you for granted is by testing you and asking for small favors, which get bigger and bigger with time. Don’t let others test your boundaries. Learn to say no to people who try to use you, even if it’s something insignificant. 4. Your importance. Do you really give yourself the same importance as you give your partner or your friends? You need to start focusing on your own happiness first. 5. Believe in yourself. Low self-love starts when you start doubting yourself and your capabilities. Improve on what you perceive as flaws about yourself and bring that confidence back into your life. Always remember; find out who you are. Don’t look for someone else to do it for you and this when you will find love. It’s never too late. FEBRUARY 2018 | 43
