Londoners Beauty Habits

I’ve just come back from vacation and could not miss wrinting about Londoners beauty habits.  So many things impressed me that I have a lot of articles to write about Londoners beauty habits.

First of all, London is the largest metropolitan area in UK, and some say is the largest urban zone in Europe Union.  London is like a global city, being great in so many domanins like education, commerce,  finance, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport, entertainment, art, healthcare and fashion.

I was surprise to see statistics that said that more than 45% of the population of London are not British, being composed by white british, white irish, white east europeans, Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Black Caribbean, black African (nigerians and ghanaians), Chinese and an important range of mixed population.

Imagine now the chalange for beauticians to creat beauty products for such a huge range of skin types, each with his particularities. But in London in not difficult to find it. Not even are so many beauty centers, shops, salons, pharmacies, supermarkets, etc, but also people take care of themselves each day.

Being such a big city, is mandatory to leave home to work very early in the morning. Many use the tubes, and women use the time becoming experts in quick make-up, or eat on the run, being preocupied for health, reading magazins about beauty, buying DVD’s with workout exercises, all of them defining the Londoners beauty habits.

I will be back with diet recipes.


Do you know about weight risks? Overweight confers a variety of risks on women, particularly when fat stores are centered in the abdominal or truncal areas of the body.

These risks include:

– coronary heart disease;

– hypertension;

– dyslipidemias, including elevated levels of very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and LDL-C;

– diabetes;

– gallstone formation;

– and cancers of the reproductive organs.

Excess body weight has also been linked to increased risk for osteoarthritis of the knee, stress incontinence, infertility, and increased risk of infection after surgery.

Knowing the weight risks, most women used to not eat, in order to lose weight, but will have secondary effects on the human organism. Start diet after talking with a nutrition, or afert reading carefully the articles online. And let me tell you a secret – drink lots of WATER ! Read here about its benefits!

Throughout the course of their lives, women are vulnerable to several weight related health risks associated with being overweight, losing weight, and being underweight by choice.

Healthy body weight refers to a body size that falls within a BMI range of 20 to 25. BMI values below and above this range are associated with increased health risks. Increasingly, WHR is used in conjunction with BMI to assess weight related health risk.

The WHR is a better indicator of abdominal or truncal adiposity, a measurement more closely linked to a greater risk of  diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers. A WHR greater than 0.85 puts women at higher risk of  weightrelated health problems.

Between one quarter to one third of North American adult women are overweight. In certain native and ethnic  populations, this figure may be substantially higher. Evidence indicates that there is a weight-gaining trend among adults, despite a preoccupation with body weight and despite the massive effort and billions of dollars spent in Canada and the United States trying to control weight.
