Eat Well: A Resveralife Guide for More Successful Holiday Recipes

Resveralife would like to believe that all there is to recipes is ingredient lists and preparation steps, but that would be far from the truth. There are times when you discover that despite following the recipe to the letter, the dish ends up being an epic fail. Some of the main reasons why recipes end up failing include missing ingredients, incomprehensible terms, lack of personalization, and more. To help you increases your chances of success when it comes to preparing the right recipes, Resveralife brings you an Eat Well Guide for more successful holiday recipes.

Dishes in kitchen making holiday recipes

Cooking Tips

Start off by properly reading the recipe. Browse through the cooking utensils required, the ingredient list and the cooking time. You’d be surprised at how much the little details matter. If you find certain jargons that seem to be incomprehensible, search for meanings online. When it comes to the picture of the dish being shown in the recipe, don’t get fooled. Your dish won’t look anything like the picture. These photographs were shot by professional photographers in studio environments. The ideal way to start off with recipes is to follow it exactly as mentioned during the first attempt. Do not try to increase/ reduce the portions or substitute ingredients. Once you gain your confidence of preparing the recipe, you can always start experimenting with the ingredients and the flavors. It is also important for you to understand that you should never try out a new recipe when you’re serving them to guests. Always stick to tried and tested methods because it reflects poorly on you if the recipe turns out to be a major flop during an event or a get-together. The ideal place to try out new recipes is during those family meals.Holiday pot roast meal with veggies

Stay on the lookout for recipes that are explained properly

There are some recipes which are perfectly explained and then there are those which are incomprehensible. The best recipes are always long enough and highly detailed. Short and to the point recipes are usually vague and confusing. The more details and advice a recipe offers, the easier it is to replicate the results. Stick to recipes that follow the most basic recipe rules – a decent introduction, a list of ingredients, nutritional information and preparation steps.

Eliminate the “worst” recipes from the list

We often come across all sorts of recipes in newspapers and magazines that are given by world famous chefs and celebrities – things like “Cupcakes – The Way X Makes Them”. It is important to consider that such recipes are usually full of errors, omissions and estimations. When journalists write about such recipes, it is usually to fill in the article space and interview famous personalities. The focus of the entire recipe is to showcase the chef’s image rather than offer the right recipes to readers. You can always use such recipes as a source of inspiration to improve on your existing recipes, but never base your dishes on these recipes.

Ultimately, when it comes to cooking, you can only get better with regular practice. The more you cook, the more you learn about various tastes and flavors.

Look Well: Makeup Tips for a Flawless Face

As women, we have all seen another woman at least once in our lives who seemed to have the most perfect face, whether or not it looked as though she had makeup on. Maybe some of us have gotten jealous or envious. No need – today, Resveralife would like to teach you a few makeup tips of your own so that you too can have a flawless face every day.

Young Woman Applying Cream On Her Face Over White Background

Step 1: Proper Cleansing and Moisturizing

Before you ever touch a sponge or brush to your face, proper cleansing and moisturizing techniques, done at least twice per day, will keep your skin fresh and clean with a youthful appearance. You always want to ensure you are painting on a fresh canvas, so to speak, and not painting over an already established painting. Always wash your makeup off at the end of the day before bed, and always moisturize with a moisturizing cream intended for the nighttime hours.

 

Step 2: Primer

Facial primer is the same kind of thing as primer in which you would use on your walls in your home before painting. It covers blemishes, freckles, and spots, while giving you a smooth application when it comes time to use foundation. It also helps your cosmetic products to ‘stick’ throughout the day, and also it helps them to stay in place and not crease in areas where they normally would, such as the eyes.

 

Step 3: Foundation

Foundation is really the item that will tie your face together and make or break your entire look. You don’t want to underdo it, otherwise you are using it for virtually no reason, however; you don’t want to overdo it, either. Nobody looks good with too much foundation caked on their face. Using a foundation color that matches your skin tone is essential. Another essential is to make sure you are using quality products from reputable companies. Foundation, depending on the type, is to be applied with fingertips, a makeup wedge or sponge, and/or a brush. It should evenly and smoothly cover the face and blend into the neck naturally.

Step 4: Blush

When applying blush and trying to attain a natural flawless look, the blush shouldn’t be too vibrant in color, and should only be applied to the apples of the cheeks. Also, don’t overdo the color. Use minimal amounts simply to give you the appearance of a naturally colored facial tone. Less is better, here. There are many different types of blush for your particular skin tone so be sure to consult with your favorite beauty store for some ideas on what colors work for you.

 

Step 5: Eyeliner

There’s just something about eyeliner that can make a face look absolutely fantastic – or, on the opposite end of the spectrum, terrible. Proper eyeliner application should be done by applying close to the lash line, and never going heavy on the bottom lash line. Blending the liner on the bottom lash line is also a good idea, whether using a smudge brush or your fingertip. For those who like the look of liquid eyeliner, practice really does make perfect. There are many ways to apply eyeliner for a flawless, gorgeous look. Experimenting with different styles is the best way to know what works best for you.

 

Step 6: Eye Shadow

Eye Shadow is one of the best components of the cosmetic world. It can do so much for your eye shape and color. You can make your entire appearance change to match whatever your mood through the use of eye shadow. The smoky eye look is a classic which looks great no matter the occasion or outfit. You can go subtle or dramatic – it’s up to you. With a multitude of colors and styles, eye shadow is just one of those things you can learn to do and rock it fantastically.

Applying red lipstick

Step 7: Lipstick

Lipstick is fun to use and can give your face that extra pop of color you’re missing. You can mix and match your lipstick to co-ordinate with your outfit, shoes, or handbag, and whether you have dramatic makeup on your face or are going for a subtle look, lipstick can set the whole look off on the right foot. Using a lipstick brush is the best way to get smooth, even coverage and ensure the product is properly applied where it should be.

 

Practice Makes Perfect

Cosmetic products are a lot of fun to play with and sometimes, it can take practice to get the look you really want. Practice does make perfect. So, try some of the above cosmetic products out for yourself and soon you will find yourself becoming your very own makeup professional in no time.

Resveralife on Live Well: Indulge Your Senses

The transition from the warmer months to the cooler months might call for more drastic measures than a simple wardrobe change. As the cold weather begins to throw its tantrums, you need to bundle up and start spending more time cozying yourself indoors. This leads to your skin becoming dehydrated. According to the owner of Amba Health and Beauty Spa, Corrina MacConnel, one of the biggest culprits when it comes to tormenting your skin during the winters is the heat that you put on in your home and in your car. During the summer months, the skin absorbs more moisture. You also eat more fresh fruits and drink more water. Furthermore, your skin gets its Vitamin D naturally from the sun. However, as the cooler months arrive, your skin loses its moisture and its beautiful summer glow. Vine Vera believes that you don’t really need an excuse to pamper your skin, but the loss of moisture certainly gives you the ideal excuse to enjoy beauty and wellness treatments. This Resveralife Live Well Guide helps you understand how to best indulge your senses.

Bring back your glowing looks

The cooler temperatures can dry up the natural oils that are present in your skin because of the lack of humidity in the air. Moreover, the cold winds also lead to windburns and chapping on your exposed skin. This makes it extremely important to pamper your skin, so as to prevent ghastly looks and bring back your summer glow. There are a few spa treatments that certainly stand out when it comes to bringing back glowing looks. The Organic Men’s Facial at the Rosseau Spa, the Hydradermie Facial at the Amba Spa and the Beaute Neuve Treatment at the Amba Spa are worth mention. Alternatively, you can also try out Vine Vera’s Vitamin C Deep Peeling, Vitamin C Serum and the Vitamin C Day Cream. These three products from the VineVera Vitamin C Collection can help you bring back your long lost radiance, target the appearance of issues like acne and sensitive skin and make your skin glow like before.

Indulge in Manicures and Pedicures

Manicures and pedicures are an ideal way of ensuring that your hands and feet look soft, beautiful and healthy. Whether you apply polish to make your nails look beautiful or indulge in a luxe treatment to get spa-perfect nails, you can choose from all sorts of manicures and pedicures at the top spas in your city. All Amba Spas offer you with regular manicures and pedicures that come along with refreshing aromatherapy wraps around your neck and a soothing foot scrub. And as for the best colors to sport this winter, think of things like golds, silvers, reds, dark purples and grays. Nail lovers are also likely to fall in love with the treatments offered by the HM Spa. Not only can one choose from a vast variety of colors, the soak-off gel offerings create intense sensations as well.

Get Epic Massages

Exfoliating scrubs, body wraps and full body massages are certainly the best and most relaxing treatments that you can offer to your body in the cooler months. Things like hot stone massages help you to relax your muscles and increase the blood circulation. You can also use all sorts of body wraps to replenish your skin and make your skin look younger and fresher. One of the best options is the Couple Massage at The Rosseau Spa. This exciting experience includes a customized facial, a couple’s massage, aromatherapy bath and a scrub. Alternatively, you can simply delight yourself with one of Vine Vera’s luxurious masks that can help you enjoy a spa-like experience at the comfort of your home.

Simply put, even though you don’t really need excuses to pamper your skin, the dehydration that the cooler months bring along with them certainly give you the perfect excuse to take some time off to pamper your skin.

Artistic rendering of persons body

Resveralife on Live Well: Art and Your Health

Although it might not be news to you that art can have a major impact on your mood, it might certainly be news to you that art can have a major impact on your health as well. Recent research has actually shown that picking and hanging the right artwork in a room can help to improve the mood  and the overall health of its occupant. It is obvious that any form of art can contribute to the psychological well-being of an individual. It might not be the greatest source of happiness for everyone and everyone might not be highly skilled in it, but it is more than likely to give all sorts of people a lot of happiness. This post tries to shows you how art and your health might be connected.

In the recent years, there have been a number of studies that have been conducted to determine the impact that art has to play on the overall well-being and health of a person. It has been shown that art can actually supplement proper care and medicine in helping out people with physical or mental health issues. Research has gone on to show that engaging the person in art can actually prevent the disease from developing and create a sense of well-being.

The proof of the existence of a positive relationship between art and your health was discovered in a study conducted by the Health Working Group in the year 2007. This study found out that there was substantial evidence that art helped in creating an environment that promoted and developed good health. This study was backed by a paper published by the British Medical Association in the year 2011. This paper measured the improvements caused by arts and humanities programs on hospital inpatients and found out that such programs helped to shorten the duration of the hospital stay, reduce the consumption of drugs, improve mental balance, bring about positive psychological changes and promote better doctor-patient relationships.

According to Dr. Daniel Levitin from the McGill University, music can actually activate certain areas of your brain the same way that chocolates, orgasms or opium manage to. Dr. Levitin also states that music might also be the last thing that fades away from the memories of people suffering from diseases like the Alzheimer’s Disease. Furthermore, recent studies discovered that singing releases a set of substances that play the role of painkillers for your brain. The vast impact that music had to offer to the overall well-being of a person led to the development of things like music therapy as well.

Another art that is believed to be highly beneficial in terms of easing the pain and the stress caused is art therapy. Megan Robb, a certified art therapist, believes that traumatic memories are usually stored in the brain in the form of images. This makes art therapy an ideal way to access these memories and heal the patients. Once these images are drawn, words can be formed in order to describe them. Resveralife came across a few studies supported by the NIH that have also shown that art can help in improving the quality of life of an individual, reduce the fatigue suffered by cancer patients and also help out with issues like depression.

Other forms of art that have also shown to help you live well include writing and dancing.

Resveralife Asks: Can Wine Replace the Gym?

Some might consider wine to be a toxic irritant in the system, but recent reports seem to show that the ancients might have got it right once again by substituting water with wines in their diets. A number of studies now state that this grape based intoxicant might have antioxidant qualities to offer to the human body. This simply makes us wonder whether wine can help us feel healthier or not and how much of wine should we be drinking. After all, drinking more wine is what the entire French Paradox is about, isn’t it?

 

Wine was considered to be a staple in ancient times because water was more or less contaminated with pathogens and deadly diseases. Moreover, in many places water ended up becoming a luxury, whereas wine could be found everywhere. Such was its popularity, that it managed to linger on for centuries when countless other alcohols came and went. And as many wine lovers would love to swear by, they still seem younger than many of their non-drinking buddies.

 

In a recent study that was conducted to determine whether wine consumption had any benefits, researchers have discovered that red wine contains an active ingredient known as Resveratrol, an ingredient that is commonly found in nuts and red grapes. Resveratrol is considered to offer significant anti-aging benefits with regular use and it is also believed to be one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world. Numerous wine based studies also confirm that Resveratrol has a way of improving the cardiovascular health of our elderly, when used in the right doses.

 

In fact, another study also mentioned out that red wine could be effectively termed as a substitute to exercising because it helped to protect muscle loss and preserve muscle tone. However, despite these results, Resveratrol studies are still in their nascent stages and it is always best to drink wine in moderation.

 

What you can do is that you can alter your daily routines to accommodate some red wine and give your body with the wondrous benefits that Resveratrol has to offer. And No. Don’t be lazy. We don’t mean that skipping out on your daily exercise is ok. Here are a few things that you can do.

  • Maintain your daily exercise routine. Resveratrol might be helping you with muscle toning and preventing muscle loss, but exercising is about a lot more than maintaining your muscles. It also has a lot to do with keeping you healthy. What you can do is that you could wind down with a glass of wine. This helps you to look good as well as feel good.
  • Bring in the reds. Dessert wines might taste fantabulous, but they don’t offer you with any Resveratrol whatsoever. So, cut out on the tastes that a Chardonnay has to offer. Red wine is just as tasty and its extremely healthy too.
  • Always drink in moderation. Resveratrol might be beneficial for your body, but always drink wine in moderation. Wine also contains alcoholic content and sugar that can accumulate toxins and poisons in your body. Drinking too much of wine can also cause a lot of internal damage to your body. Remember, wine can act as a Resveratrol supplement, it cannot act as a replacement for healthy lifestyles.

 

To sum up, can wine replace the gym? Nope!
