We all know spinach is a good source of iron, and it contains many health benefits… BUT, do we all know the side effect from eating spinach?

Spinach = Calcium Blocker.

Despite how good it tastes, guess we gotta go easy on it. When you eat spinach with other foods, the total amount of calcium that you could have absorbed are interfered by this oxalic acid in spinach; and thus, many amounts of calcium from other foods and the spinach itself go to waste.

Here’s the good news, there are many vegetables that can give you as much as nutrition:

  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Bok Choy
  • Chinese Cabbage
  • etc…

Sometimes you just miss eating spinach… Guess that’d be fine! You still can eat spinach occasionally, preferably by itself, so you won’t waste the calcium from other foods… And get your calcium daily intake later on ;)

To put it bluntly, beautiful eyes are healthy eyes! If you’re eyes are unhealthy, no make up can make them look truly good.

Someone wrote: “Healthy eyes are those with clear whites, and the iris is bright and the lids are not granulated. Healthy eyes move easily and lend animation to the whole face.”

Honestly, I love to go natural.

I think eyes are very delicate; I wouldn’t dare to put some chemical drops just to get rid of the redness, or etc… Unless, if it’s an eye medication, of course (>_<)

Few simple habits to beautify your eyes:

  1. Don’t stare on the computer screen for too long. Let your eyes rest.
  2. When you read, make sure you have adequate amount of lighting — not too much, not too less.
  3. Get your beauty sleep! Yes, the quantity does matter, but the time when you start sleeping matters as well.
  4. Go on a detox. I really couldn’t stress this more. After you went on a good detox, you’ll see your eyes brighter — it sparkles, literally. A sign of true health from within.

Let make-up complements your beauty, not covers up your flaw.

Simplest make-up trick to make your beautiful eyes come out even more:

  1. Eyeliner/Eye definer
  2. Mascara

These two should do the magic for a natural, everyday look :)

If you would like something more, there are so many good make-up tutorials all over the net. My favs are Bubzbeauty’s, Catalina’s, Kandee Johnson’s, Miss Jessica Harlow’s channels…and so on

P.S. You gotta appear well-groomed as well, so trimmed your eye brows! ;)

P.P.S. It’s not a lie when one said ‘eyes are the windows to your soul’ — have confidence and be happy! It’s shown. You could even feel the difference how your eyes sparkled when you’re clothed with those two! xx
