Excess stress may give you a headache, a stomachache, or just a feeling of being “on edge.” But too much stress could also be doing a number on your mouth, teeth, gums, and overall health.

The potential fallout from stress and anxiety that can affect your oral health includes:

Mouth sores, including canker sores and cold sores
Clenching of teeth and teeth grinding (bruxism)
Poor oral hygiene and unhealthy eating routines
Periodontal (gum) disease or worsening of existing periodontal disease
So how can you prevent these oral health problems?

Mouth Sores

Canker sores — small ulcers with a white or grayish base and bordered in red — appear inside the mouth, sometimes in pairs or even greater numbers. Although experts aren’t sure what causes them — it could be immune system problems, bacteria, or viruses — they do think that stress, as well as fatigue and allergies, can increase the risk of getting them. . Canker sores are not contagious.

Most canker sores disappear in a week to 10 days. For relief from the irritation, try over-the-counter topical anesthetics. To reduce irritation, don’t eat spicy, hot foods or foods with a high acid content, such as tomatoes or citrus fruits.

Cold sores, also called fever blisters, are caused by the herpes simplex virus and are contagious. Cold sores are fluid-filled blisters that often appear on or around the lips, but can also crop up under the nose or around the chin area.

Emotional upset can trigger an outbreak. So can a fever, a sunburn, or skin abrasion.

Like canker sores, fever blisters often heal on their own in a week or so. Treatment is available, including over-the-counter remedies and prescription antiviral drugs. Ask your doctor or dentist if you could benefit from either. It’s important to start treatment as soon as you notice the cold sore forming.

Teeth Grinding

Stress may make you clench and grind your teeth — during the day or at night, and often unconsciously. Teeth grinding is also known as bruxism.

If you already clench and grind your teeth, stress could make the habit worse. And, grinding your teeth can lead to problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), located in front of the ear where the skull and lower jaw meet.

See your doctor and ask what can be done for the clenching and grinding. Your dentist may recommend a night guard, worn as you sleep, or another appliance to help you stop or minimize the actions.

How To Rock Her World!

Pay Attention
It’s easy to get lost in your own pleasure, but if you want to help a woman orgasm, you have to focus on her, too. It’s common for women to turn inward when they’re turned on, so don’t rely on moans of pleasure to guide your way. Instead, watch for tension in her muscles, especially in her hands, feet and pelvis. If you’re not sure, ask her to give you a sign when she’s getting close, like a squeeze of your hand.
Don’t Stop
If it seems like something’s working, don’t change it. When a woman is close to climaxing, she needs consistency, not variety. Keep using your penis, hand, mouth, toy, or whatever else to provide resistance to her clitoris while letting her do the work. This clitoral pressure is more important for her pleasure than simply thrusting.
Get Her On Top
When she’s ready for intercourse, pull her on top of you. Also called female-superior, it’s the best sex position for helping a woman climax because it provides clitoral stimulation. web hosting . You can also try CAT (coital alignment technique): You’re on top, but focus on deep thrusting while keeping pressure on her clitoris from your pelvis.
Relax And Enjoy
While you might both orgasm at the same time, it’s more likely that one of you will be first. Keep this in mind when it comes to dealing with premature ejaculation. If that’s you, don’t sweat it. Keep her in the window: It will take about 90 seconds to lose your erection, so she should still be able to climax if you’re providing consistent clitoral stimulation with your pelvis.
She Comes First
And if she comes first? Enjoy her orgasm, and congratulate yourself on a job well done. Most women have an innate capacity to achieve multiple orgasms, so get to work on that second one.

Top 10 Cities of 2011

By admin, April 29th, 2011,in Lifestyle » | 46 Comments »

No. 10: San Francisco, U.S.
It’s not called the San Francisco Bay Area for nothing. San Franciscans stretch out beyond the dense urban jungle to bike up Mount Diablo in the East Bay, hike the Marin Headlands or shuck fresh oysters along the north coast. San Francisco has one of the most dynamic food scenes in the United States, and a weekend of wine tasting is just 45 minutes away in Napa and Sonoma.
No. 9: Sydney, Australia
Sydneysiders love to party, and they love to eat. To join in with both, why not start in the harbor at Quay, then move on to the Opera Bar or the Rockpool Bar and Grill, newly opened in an Emil Sodersten building, for some style. For nightlife, tourists go to the Rocks, but the locals still love King’s Cross.
No. 8: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Going out in Buenos Aires is all about casual wear and flip-flops, with revelers hitting the town late. While foreigners are understandably intimidated by the steely glares of the porteños (port-dwellers), behind those pouting faces are some of the friendliest clubbers in the Southern Hemisphere.
No. 7: Miami, U.S.
While Miami may be best known for its beaches and the beautiful people who sprawl across them, culture isn’t given a backseat. Miami is North America’s emerging design capital, and given the plethora of party venues (and the great weather), there are tons of special events and festivals here all year, from wine and food festivals to music blowouts.
No. 6: Cape Town, South Africa
Two words: World Cup. Cape Town is South Africa’s glossiest city, and guys have much more than soccer to occupy them: all within a stone’s throw are windsurfing beaches, wineries, rock-climbing walls, and oh yeah, the continent’s best nightlife.
No. 5: London, UK
The cost of living in London is notoriously high, but it’s actually gone down in the past year, despite a continued surge in innovative food, design and nightlife. The city’s gearing up for the Olympics in 2012, which means new developments on the horizon.
No. 4: Madrid, Spain
Madrid gives New York City a run for its money as the city that never sleeps, with Madrileños beginning their evenings around 11 p.m. with shots and sangria and staggering home no earlier than 6 a.m.
No. 3: Tokyo, Japan
We’ll never cease to be amazed by Tokyo. From the food to the parties to the tech, we’re continually humbled. And the shopping — well, this is quite possibly the premier fashion city on earth, especially for menswear, with obscure brands and some of the best denim in the world available in stores that are designed to blow your mind.
No. 2: Melbourne, Australia
Melbourne is affordable, stylish and laid-back — basically all of our favorite qualities in a city. As the home of Aussie-rules football, you’ll never lack for willing opponents in a pickup game, and there’s a new stadium where you can go watch the pros, too.
No. 1: New York City, U.S.
There’s no place on earth that makes us happier to be men in 2010 than New York City. The Big Apple is always reinventing itself and never fails to surprise us with what comes next. Since the financial crisis, the high-gloss bottle service bars have been replaced by cozy speakeasies, and designer tapas bars have been replaced by burgers and suckling pig, which is definitely a step in the right direction.

Razor or Electric shaver?

By admin, April 29th, 2011,in Bold Style » | 63 Comments »

Better Man in brief …
Shave during or after a shower because the hot water opens your pores.
Contrary to popular belief, do not shave against the grain.
Must-have tool in your shaving kit? The badger brush.
About The Art Of Shaving
What was the inspiration for The Art of Shaving?
I had sensitive skin. That inspired my wife to help me avoid razor burn by creating the preshave oil in our kitchen in Chelsea.

Is there really an art to it?
No. Art elevates the act into something special. That’s what we’re really trying to say. We’ve turned it into a science where you’re able to get the perfect shave every day at home without compromising comfort or closeness.

Which camp can we count you in — manual or electric?

Do you recommend that for everyone?
Yes, unless you have some specific beliefs.

But you sell electric products in your store.
Those can be used wet, though. I don’t believe you should be using an electric shaver in your car or while eating cereal because you don’t have time. You’ve got to reevaluate the whole package at that point. We are not here to dictate. We are here to recommend, help and guide. I’ve tested electric many times, and it doesn’t give you the close shave that you want. But, if you don’t want a close shave, it could be an option.

Get The Perfect Shave
Take us through your skincare routine.
I like to use our face wash, and a couple of times a week I’ll use a scrub. I am also a big fan of our hydrating toner. It’s a nonalcoholic, 100 percent-pure rose-water toner that’s really refreshing. I usually use it after a shower (whether or not I’ve shaved) and might do a little moisturizing afterward. I don’t have very dry skin, so the toner is a really good routine for me.
