One of only two men in a group of 60 women, Simmons figured his chances to meet someone were pretty high, however, the entrepreneur got a lot more from the class than just a date.

Health: What happens when you sleep with make up on

Let’s be honest, sleeping in make up happens to a lot of us yes?

It is proven that sleeping with make up for one night may not have drastic effects on your skin.

We have highlighted what happens when you sleep with your make up on;

Clogged pores

Sleeping with make up is suicide to your pores.

Most of these make up products have products that are are very heavy on your skin hence when you sleep with your make up on, it just clogs up your skin.

Outbreak of acne

Acne is such a deal breaker.

And any product you put on your face has consequences.

Some of the consequences may be acne especially if you do not clean up make up after that long day at the office.

This may also be as a result of clogged up pores as highlighted in the previous point.

Damage to your skin cells

Some products may damage your skin cells in big ways.

Let’s talk about fake make up, you know, those one that you buy in down town.

Yes those ones, so imagine putting that make up on and then sleeping with that make up.

Not only will you invite the aging god mother, your skin is about to go a whole 360 degrees turn for the worst

Premature aging

In all honesty, no one wants to have wrinkles at 20.

Sleeping in make up can increase exposure to radicals which may lead to premature aging that could harm your skin.

Take care of your skin so that it can take care of you.

Study: Wearing shoes indoors could be good for your health

Leads to dried up skin

Cleansing wipes may not give you that clean no make up look.

Instead, it may lead to dried up skin which may lead to break outs and worse peeling of your skin.

Thus as you remove that make up, take care of your skin by using a moisturizer to even the imbalance after make up removal

6 relationship rules every man and woman should follow

To my dear ladies:

Ladies, it has been said that ya’ll are a very expensive commodity and most of the ladies sell themselves short for peanuts. It is high time you respect yourselves and know your value as a well-respected woman.

Stop being bitter from the past. Life is too short to keep grudges and always being angry over what happened to you in the past. Life, on the other hand, is sweet only if you open your eyes to see that for yourself.

Stop falling for looks and money. This act makes all women look like golddiggers and lazy in the fact they don’t want to break a sweat to earn a dime for themselves. Money and looks are not everything in a man, try looking at the other attributes that he may have, for at the end of it all these things are vanity.

Set your standards high. This doesn’t necessarily mean you are high maintenance, this simply means you want to differentiate from the rest. Those who cannot afford your standards should just keep moving on because you do not have time for broke ni**as with no future. But also remember, it is also very important to have your own before entering a relationship.

PDA

Close your mouth and listen at times. It has come to be known that women are loudmouths and do not listen in an argument or admit whenever they may be wrong and take advise. I would like to tell the ladies to be slow to speak and quick to listen for the Bible says,

“Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror.”

Stop thinking about him, because he is not thinking about you ladies

Motivate each other. Women have been known to be their worst enemies. They compete instead of motivating each other in doing better. Hence why ladies are never happy and jealous of each other. Girls support each other for no man is an island, we cannot do without each other.

Don’t be naive. Never show that you do not know anything or have any experience in whatever you may be asked about. With lack of knowledge may result in you being used or taken advantage of for not being experienced at a given field or unsophisticated.

For my fellow men;

Stop being full of pride. Men are known for being proud in their accomplishments or how big their genitalia is. I would like to advise my fellow men to reduce their egos and humble themselves for we tend to like to exaggerate in activities of being strong or being se3ually active.

BLACK-COUPLE-SAD-facebook

Men keep your se3 life confidential. It goes without saying, bedroom matters should be kept confidential. But men tend to publicize it like it is an accomplishment having bagged a shawty for either a one night stand or having bagged a hommies shawty.

Stop flexing like you got it all. Instagram will be the death of us all I must say. Many self-acclaimed men love to show off their wealth on the gram. This makes other people who watch their posts feel discouraged and want to commit suicide because they feel like they are not living their worth on this world. This tends to discourage people who work hard to earn their coins.

Learn to respect women. No man should be caught disrespecting a woman whatsoever. Also as a man, you shouldn’t lay your hand on a woman no matter what. This makes you less of a man.

Show off your girl and try to be faithful. Men are very proud when they bag themselves a pretty girl. Want to show them off as a trophy and it is a sign that you are proud of your lady and love her and not ashamed of his pick. But yet again, cheating scandals tend to evolve mostly on the guy’s side, but do not get me wrong, I ain’t saying women don’t cheat but all I am saying is that men should try to be faithful and love just one woman at a time.

Pick up a Bible and read my guy! Sin has warped our ability to clearly reflect God’s image. God’s Spirit uses the Bible to transform us to reflect the image of Jesus Christ in every area of our lives. As we read the Bible as individuals and with other believers, God grows us in godliness. God uses his Word to transform us into clearer reflections of his Son, Jesus Christ. It also rebukes us.

Teach your brothers the same. Let us all be our brother’s keeper. Let us all look after each other and help each other when we down. Life is a rollercoaster and we may never know when our turn may reach and may be our turn to seek for help or advise.

Simple ‘yet crucial’ rule of thumb for cooking

The first? Never fry naked

As simple as it may sound, many people do forget simple safety measures in the kitchen.

‘Along the same lines, wear shoes. Dropping a knife blade down or a boiling pot of noodles on your bare feet is no good,’ one man wrote on Reddit.

‘A dull blade is more dangerous than a sharp blade,’ one chef wrote.

Other popular tips included adding salt per taste, add more butter if in doubt, avoiding over seasoning and mastering prep.

‘Cooking is 90% prep, 10% execution. By the time you’re ready to start cooking, pretty much everything should be laid out for you in the order and fashion that you want to use it,’ a chef explained.

WHAT ARE THE BEST SIMPLE COOKING TIPS?

– Clean up as you go

– Natural chicken or vegetable stock is better than artificial stock

– You can always add more salt, but never take out salt

– Unless it’s a dessert, it needs garlic

– Master cooking eggs and you can cook anything

– Underdone veggies are better than overdone veggies
