Best Beaches in the USA in 2015

Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, Hawaii

Preparing for 2015 summer vacations? Find out what beaches in the USA are best this year.

Last week  Professor Stephen Leatherman of Florida International University  known as Dr. Beach revealed which ten beaches in the USA are best. He makes this list each year and now is the time for 2015 edition as the summer is coming. This year the title of top beach in the USA received Waimanalo Bay Beach Park located on Oahu, Hawaii.

Dr. Beach estimates beaches by 50 criteria such as water and sand quality, amenities,  environmental management. Waimanalo Bay Beach Park received highest marks in all categories and it is ahead of Barefoot Beach in Florida. In past several years Leatherman introduced some new criteria for beaches estimation. The talk is about no-smoking rules. and safety.

Leatherman explained that when the talk is about litter on beaches, most frequently are seen there cigarette butts and plastic, therefore he gave higher marks to those beaches that are clean. On the beaches where smoking was permitted it was normal to gather ten cigarette butts in a square meter. In Oahu smoking is banned on beaches and that makes their beaches clean. This helped the Oahu beach to win this year the highest place in top 10 best US beaches. Another factor which plays an important role is beach location. Waimanalo is located in a quiet town near an Air Force base, far away from the noisy city of Waikiki.

Leatherman says that the beach is very beautiful and few people know about this place. That is one more reason why it is so clean and perfect. The beach is the longest in Oahu, the water is blue and not very deep here. It is a safe place. Though there are a lot of amazing beaches in Hawaii, but not every beach can be called safe.

It should be said that Waimanalo Bay is a perfect place for fising and there is a lot of fish here. However, the waters here are calm and this place is not for surfing.

In 2015 list of best US beaches was included one more Hawaii beach. The talk is about  Hamoa Beach on Maui . Generally speaking, Hawaii beaches receive highest marks from Leatherman for years.

2015 Top 10 Beaches in the USA:
1. Waimanalo Bay Beach Park, Hawaii;
2. Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs, Florida;
3. St. George Island State Park on the Florida Panhandle;
4. Hamoa Beach on Maui, Hawaii;
5. Cape Hatteras, Outer Banks of North Carolina;
6. Cape Florida State Park in Key Biscayne, Florida;
7. Coast Guard Beach on Cape Cod, Massachusetts;
8. Beachwalker Park on Kiawah Island, South Carlolina;

What is Gommage and How to Use It

Facial Care

The word “gommage” comes from French “gomme” which literally means “eraser”. Gommage is a cosmetic product or procedure specially created to remove upper layer of skin in order to peel dead cells off. This helps to improve structure and look of the skin.

Skin peel-off is a natural physiological processes. However, a number of negative factors may break this process and this leads to breaking of most important skin functions such as breathing. These negative factors are:
– inadequate skin hygiene;
– vitamin deficiency;
– poor ecology;
– stresses and diseases.
As a result skin becomes dull and looks unhealthy. It needs a special care.

With time, skin loses its ability to remove dead cells alone. It needs our help and here our best aids are gommage or scrub.

What is the difference between gommage and scrub?
Both gommage and scrub are exfoliators and have the same function – to remove upper layer of skin that is dead cells. What differes them is the approach to the removal. Scrub acts mechanically with small particles, while gommage acts with fruit acids or enzymes. This makes peel-off with gommage softer and more delicate. Due to its roughness, scrub is not recommended for sensitive and tender skin. However, all types of skin need additional cosmetic peeling and here comes gommage! It is suitable for all skin types!

Gommage contains no hard particles like scrub. Its fruit acids or enzymes dissolve dead cells and in this way they are gently removed. Besides effective exfoliation, micro massage of skin stimulates blood circulation, accelerates cellular metabolism eliminates stagnant conditions, and improves protective function of skin. In case of regular gommage use, skin becomes fresh, more elastic and looks younger.

Gommage contains ingredients which actively moisturize and nourish skin, enhance metabolism, improve aqua and oily balance of skin, but aromatic olis make the process of peeling especially pleasant.

How often gommage should be used?
Well, it depends on skin type:
– oily or mixed skin type – 3 times a week;
– normal or dry skin – 1 time a week;
– mature skin (45+) – 1-2 times a week.

When gommage should not be used?
Do not use gommage before sun, freeze, wind exposure because after procedure the skin is extrimely vulnerable.

Is there any age limits on gommage use?
No. Women of any age may easily use it as skin always needs additional peeling.

In the end it may be said that gommage is a magic solution. Women with problematic and oily skin were waiting for such a solution for a long time and now may enjoy the novelty from French cosmetic makers. Yeah, French created it and they are best makers of gommage. Therefore look for French producers: Yves Rocher, Yon-Ka, Payot, Clarins and more. On some gommages is written “scrub”, so be careful and look on ingredients.

Gift Ideas for Her on Valentine’s Day

Love

It is February and soon people in many countries of the world will celebrate Valentine’s Day, most romantic holiday of the year. Now is the time to choose a gift for your dear Valentine. In this article we provide recommendations for men who are searching best gifts for their beloved women.

First let us go into history of this holiday.
Valentine’s Day is celebrated annually on February 14. It is believed that the holiday comes from both ancient Roman and Christian traditions. The Catholic Encyclopedia writes that there were three Christian saints who beared the name of Valentine: priest in Rome,  bishop in Terni and one churchman about whom nothing is known. All them were martyred on 14th February, but the first of them was honored by Pope Gelasius.

Many scientists suggest that this Christian priest lived around 270 AD in Rome and he fell into disgrace of Roman emperor Claudius II. It was the time when the Roman Empire began to fade and Claudius II needed soldiers. He believed that married men were attached to their families, which prevents them from being good soldiers. He considered that marriage makes men weak. Therefore, in order to have a good army, Claudius II prohibited marriage by an edict. People disliked the edict, but did not protest because of fear. In these conditions, priest Valentine was the one who dared to hold secret marriage ceremonies of soldiers.  When Claudius II found out about it, he ordered to take the priest in prision, where he tried to turn him into Roman religion. However, Valentine did not refuse from Christianity and as a result was executed on February 14. Thus Valentine became a fearless symbol of love.

Top Non-Filter Cigarettes

Astra Non-FilterWhen you are looking for a quality smoke, you normally ask your friends for an advice or recall well-known cigarette brands in your mind which inspire confidence. Marketing departments know that if a brand name or logo appears frequently in front of man’s eyes, this brand fixes firmly in his mind. Then he starts to trust this brand because he is familiar with it.

When the talk is about no-filter cigarettes, people can hardly recall a cigarette brand which has such products in its range. This is because non-filters are not promoted like filters. Why? Because filter cigarettes are for mass consumption and non-filters are for a narrow circle of consumers, because not all smokers like the harsh taste of tobacco which non-filters give. Filters in cigarettes help to make smoking milder.

That is the reason why non-filters are usually used only by experienced smokers. They say that cigarettes without filters allow them to feel true taste of tobacco.  Moreover, they say that in production of non-filter cigarettes is used tobacco of higher quality than in filter cigarettes!

Non-filters are strongest among all kinds of cigarettes and it is common feature which joins them. Incredible, but seems to be true as experienced smokers are true professionsls in tobacco. In this post we will look through one famous cigarettes brand and some brands less known to large public.

1. Camel Non-Filter (tar 10mg, nicotine 0.8mg)

This is most popular cigarettes brand among non-filters. The manufacturer is R.J. Reynolds Tobacco, one of leading tobacco companies worldwide. Probably most of us heard this brand name, saw its logo or even saw its ads. These cigarettes are packed in a soft pack and are made of Turkish tobacco which gives them a sweet taste.

2. Leana Non-Filter (tar 15mg, nicotine 1.3mg)

This is a product of famous tobacco maker in Moldova called Tutun-CTC. These cigarettes belong to the Oriental (Moldavian) Blend East type. The package is made of carton.

3. Nistru Non-Filter (tar 16mg, nicotine 1.3mg)

Just like Leana, it is produced by Tutun-CTC and also contains Oriental (Moldavian) Blend of tobaccos. However, tobaccos are mixed in different proportions, which makes the taste different. Nistru are little bit stronger than Leana.

4. Astra Non-Filter (tar 16mg, nicotine 1.3mg)

Another product of Tutun-CTC. Astra is a very popular cigarette brand in Moldova. For many years smokers choose it due to high quality tobacco used in its Oriental Blend.

5. Plugarul (tar 18mg, nicotine 1.3mg)

It is strongest cigarette brand among non-filters presented in this list. The manufacturer — Tutun-CTC famous for its quality brands. Plugarul is packed in a soft pack which makes it suitable for any pocket.

6. Hilton Original Non-Filter (tar 10mg, nicotine 0.8mg)

This is a product by British American Tobacco. It is as mild as Camel Non-Filters but has a different taste. What is unusual in these cigarettes is that they are non-filters but have a filter imitation! There is no cellulose but only paper! The unusual filter makes smoking really unusual.

The strength of all these cigarettes aloows to make an amazing smoke rings, because the stronger cigarettes are the better rings you get.
