Zoe Saldana Has A Hard Time Slowing Down

zoe-saldana-womens-health-cover__medium_4x3

It’s not surprise that we all get older; and when most people get older, they tend to slow down.  But not Zoe Saldana.  In an interview with Women’s Health U.K., the Guardians of the Galaxy star admitted her body isn’t what it was years ago, but how she knows she needs to slow down.

The 36-year-old admits;

“My body is less toned.  I do look in the mirror and see things I don’t want.  My first reaction is I breathe and I think, ‘I’m a woman.  I’m 36.  My body is changing.”

Zoe’s level of workouts and how much she works out are based off what her body tells her.

“I’ve learnt to listen to myself, so whenever I don’t feel like doing anything that starts with ‘I should’ then I don’t.”

When this interview took place, the public did not know that Zoe was pregnant, but now that the world knows, you can see why she would want to slow things down.

I’m exactly where I want to be. I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn’t. Because there have been times that I was really slender and I didn’t like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested – you’ll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it’s like “F**k it. Just be happy, regardless.”

New Trend: Eyelash Tinting Can Cause Blindness!

eye-lash-Tinting

Staying on top of the latest beauty trends can be a little tough, it seems like there is always something new; one week it’s eyelash extensions, now its eyelash tinting.

If your not hip to what eyelash tinting is, don’t feel bad. This is one beauty trend you may want to skip out on.  It can have some serious dangers. It sent one woman to the ER, thinking she may never be able to see again.

What exactly is Eyelash tinting?

Eyelash tinting is the process in which your eyelashes are dyed. It’s basically like having permanent mascara on. Dyed lashes enhance your eyes making them appear more noticeable.

However, the FDA states tha There is no dye on the market that is approved for eyelashes.  Putting any type of dye near, or around the eyes can cause blindness! Chemical burns can also occur on the skin around the eyes due to this tinting process. Hair follicles may not grow back as well, and you are at high risk of getting  a bacteria infection.

Dr. Oz, a well-known Surgeon and TV host says no one should ever get near your eyeballs with any dyes, tweezers or glue.

Both, eyelash tinting and eyelash extensions are illegal in New York and six other states, yet salons there still provide those services.

Here’s one womans horror story when her eyes were accidentally glued shut by a salon;

 “It was absolutely terrifying, I thought I was going blind. It was getting worse and worse–by Monday I couldn’t see anything and I couldn’t open my eyes at all. People said I looked like a monster. My eyes were really itchy and I looked like I had been crying.”

It took steroids, antibiotics and two weeks for this women to heal from this horror eyelash tinting experience.

A lot of women are going to great lengths to enhance their eyes with both eyelash tinting, and eyelash extensions without first considering the consequences.  Warning ladies! Ask yourselves, is it worth possibly compromising your eyesight over?

Olympian LoLo Jones, known for her  long jump between sports, she went from running track to bobsledding. In order to do so LoLo had to pack on the pounds, not just a couple of pounds, but thirty pounds to be able to hang with the other bobsledders.

Talk about all you can eat, this female athlete had to adhere to a strict 9,000 calorie diet to pack on the weight, including eating double bacon cheeseburgers and three 1,000 calorie protein shakes a day.

After competing at the Olympics in Russia for the American team, she decided to make the leap back over to track. This meant it was time for her to take off the pounds.

LoLo explained in an interview with ThePostGame.com even though she was happy to see the weight come off,  she was sad to see her booty go.

“It’s really tough, because I thought I could lose all the weight and I didn’t. I am still about 7 lbs overweight. And it’s not the way you want to keep it.. at first I had that nice bobsled butt, that I worked so hard to get, and I was like Yes!, this is going to stay, and all this other stuff is going to go…and the butt was the first thing to go and I was like NOOO!!! That’s the one thing I wanted to stay.”

Well LoLo if you win another medal in track, it will be well worth it! But consuming 9,0000 calories a day. Now that’s what you call dedication.

“Put your make-up on
Get your nails done
Curl your hair
Run the extra mile
Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?

Get your sexy on
Don’t be shy, girl
Take it off
This is what you want, to belong, so they like you
Do you like you?

 You don’t have to try so hard

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing”

Screen shot 2014-07-21 at 8.35.32 AM

It’s rare that you hear world-known models being fired for being overweight but that is exactly what happened to 28-year-old Chrissy Teigen.

The Sports Illustrated model revealed in an interview with DuJour that she was fired for being “too fat” from none other than Forever 21.

“I was actually fired from a job.  Forever 21, they booked me directly when I was much younger.  I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo.  They shot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I’m sitting in the makeup chair, and they say, ‘You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.’ And I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much. Honestly you’re the worst.”

Chrissy even shared the horrible news on Twitter.  A fan tweeted her, “saw something on E news that Forever 21 fired you for being fat?”

John Legends soon to be wife replied, “yep they suck and I hate them.”

Wow… But doesn’t Forever21 sell all sizes, even a  plus size line?

Dwayne Johnsons aka The Rock reveals his team Hercules diet plan.

He recently had to get into the best shape of his life (you would’ve though he was already there) for the role of “Hercules” and he wanted to share with all his instagram followers what his intense diet regimen consisted of to get there.

The ordinary person would eat 3 meals a day, including a couple of snacks. but if you want to pack on some lean mean muscle you need you need to add a whole lot more to your meals.

The rock revealed he had to eat seven times a day, and it wasn’t including snack it was  seven meals a day. Each meal consisted of either chicken, fish, protein powder, and egg whites. Along with rice, potatoes or oatmeal for carbohydrates and broccoli or asparagus seems to be his veggie of choice.

Dwayne explained this was no fad diet. He had to commit to this particular food plan for 22 weeks. His 14 egg whites a day, and over 3 pounds of lean meat helped him really turn in to the  greek God Hercules.

Check out the #TeamHercules meal plan below;

Adrienne Bailon Gets Her Butt Tattoo Removed

Screen shot 2014-07-17 at 8.39.18 AM

Adrienne Bailon has been pretty open about how she regrets getting one tattoo in particular, on her butt. And Finally she is getting it removed! Lawd, I know she is happy to say bye-bye to her butt tattoo that says her x-boyfriend’s name “Rob Kardashian” (I know her new boyfriend is happy too.)

The Real talk show host once dated Rob Kardashian in a very public relationship it 2007. Their love for each other was so “real” that they both got matching tattoo’s of each others names (except Adrienne’s name is on Rob’s ribs). But, when the couple split 5 years ago in 2009, their tattoo’s have lived on way past their love expiration date .

Adrienne has tried to remove the tattoo before but tattoo removals are not as easy and are very painful. She explains;

 

“I’ve had really painful experiences before, doing laser tattoo removal. Really smelling like flesh burning. Ahh!..For me getting the tattoo was painful, and living for the last past six years with somebodies name on your body is a little weird, and a bit more painful to have to like you know (one day) explain that to my kids..”

 

She is determined to get the tattoo removed for good but in a safe way, trying a new laser procedure  called “Picosure” that will take 5 sessions.

“PicoSure is an FDA-cleared laser tattoo removal technology that—in contrast to earlier methods—uses much shorter light pulses to break up ink pigments with less residual heating of surrounding tissue. Also used to treat age spots and pigmented skin.”

Tattoo removals can cost anywhere from $75-$5,000 depending on the location of the tattoo, size, ink color, and how many sessions it take to be completely removed.

Justin Bieber Is Back In The Gym & Warns #DontBeScared

20140716-131410-47650515.jpg

Justin Bieber has been flexing on Instagram but warns his Beliebers #DontBeScared. He recently has been sporting his shirtless self around the Hollywood scene, exuding much confidence with his defined set of abs and pecks on display.

Justin likes to get a good workout in, in the gym but also outdoors. If he’s not doing crunches or doing bicep curls with his trainer @thepatricknilsson, he’s hiking the canyons or skateboarding around for the Paparazzi to see.

A 1 hour session on a skateboard can burn up to 300 calories, hiking 200 calories or more (depending on the incline & speed.)

Didn’t it seem like just yesterday when Justin was a little boy with a fish bowl hair cut and no tattoos? lol. Boy they sure do grow up fast!

New Digital Birth Control Microchip That Can Turn On & Off

Screen shot 2014-07-14 at 8.13.42 AM

 

Ladies listen up! Soon you will be able to control your birth control with just a click of a button.

A Massachusetts start-up company named MicroChip just receIved a $4.6 Million dollar grant from Bill Gates to create the next form of contraception. This will allow women to plan their families, turning their fertility on and off.

So how does it work?

“The chip is implanted under the skin and releases small doses of the contraceptive hormone levonorgestrel on a daily basis, with enough capacity to last 16 years… it houses a series of micro-reservoirs covered by an ultra-thin titanium and platinum seal. The hormone is released by passing a small electric current from an internal battery through the seal, which melts it temporarily, allowing a 30 microgram dose of levonorgestrel to seep out each day. And it can be simply switched off by a wireless remote, avoiding the clinical procedures needed to deactivate other contraceptive implants.”

 

Dr. Robert Farra, a professor from MITdiscussed how easy this contraceptive is to use, explaining:

“The ability to turn the device on and off provides a certain convenience factor for those who are planning their family.”

 

Depending on how clinical trials turn out next year, the “digital pill” may be available in 2018. Microchip  also has other products in development that may change the medical game including drug delivery devices through microchips for patients who have Osteoporosis and MS as well as a Microchip rescue device for Diabetics.

 

What do you think about this digital pill? Would you want the digital pill?
