Ingrown hairs actually grow below this layer, and they have to be properly cared for. Washing and exfoliating before and after the wax can help prevent the ingrown hairs as well as the bumps that are common with waxing. Furthermore, if you use an ingrown hair treatment cream, you’re likely to see better results.You have to wait for the hair to grow really long before waxing.While there has to be something for the wax to grasp onto, the hair in most cases only needs to be a ¼ in long. Most people achieve this length in a very short time usually less than two weeks. Eyebrows on the other hand only need 1/8 of an inch. This means that for most people you only need to wax once a month instead of shaving often.Waxing will make my hair grow back thicker and darker.I’m not sure how this one started, but it’s one you hear all the time. The truth is that when you wax, your hair is removed from the root. It takes time for that hair to even begin to grow back and most people are completely hairless for a couple weeks, usually three before they have to worry about it. When you wax, you actually damage the hair follicle and in a lot of cases, that hair will never grow back again. If it does, it grows back thinner than before.Waxing will make my skin sag or stretch out. When skin gets like this, it has nothing to do with waxing no matter how long you’ve been doing it for. Sagging skin is caused by a loss in collagen, muscle tone, bad eating habits, or other unrelated habits you may have. No matter how much you actually wax, it has very little to do with how your skin might act.After waxing, I can do whatever I want: go to the tanning bed, hang out in the sun, etc….When you wax, your skin, naturally becomes sensitive especially to sources of heat. You’ve literally just antagonized your skin by pulling all the hairs out of it. Heat is not kind to skin and it is damaging by itself. Using heat will just inflame the skin even more; in actuality, you need to relax out of the sun, saunas, steam rooms, hot tubs, etc, and enjoy some cool air conditioning and moisturize your skin.

Germany: Optimistic we’ll have a vaccine in coming months and certainly next year

first_imgGerman Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Thursday he expected there to be a COVID-19 vaccine in the coming months and definitely next year, speaking after the public health agency withdrew a report suggesting there would be one in autumn.”I’m optimistic that in the next months, and certainly in the next year, there can be a vaccine,” Spahn told ZDF television.His forecast appeared to chime with a report that the Robert Koch Institute issued on Wednesday and later withdrew, in which the public health agency said it expected a vaccine by the autumn. The institute later said the document was not up-to-date and had been published in error. Topics : Spahn declined to name a specific month in which the vaccine would be ready, saying it was not yet possible to determine how often people would need to be vaccinated or how long-lasting the immunity it conferred would be.He added: “But one thing we can say is that thanks to us all working together – researchers, scientists, the public – we will probably have a vaccine faster than ever before in the history of humanity.”German Research Minister Anja Karliczek has previously said any vaccine was unlikely to be widely available before the middle of next year.Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on Tuesday that Russia had become the first country to grant regulatory approval to a COVID-19 vaccine after less than two months of human testing.center_img Spahn repeated his skepticism of that vaccine, dubbed “Sputnik V”, saying it had not yet been broad tests like with other vaccines and there was relatively little data about it.The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Germany increased by 1,445 to 219,964, data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for infectious diseases showed on Thursday, while the reported death toll rose by 4 to 9,211.last_img read more

McDermott gets approval for reorganization plan

first_imgThe U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas has confirmed McDermott’s plan of reorganization and approved the sale of Lummus Technology to a joint partnership between The Chatterjee Group and Rhône Capital.McDermott filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in late January 2020 to eliminate $4.6 billion of debt.The company announced the confirmation of its plan of reorganization on Thursday, March 12.David Dickson, President and Chief Executive Officer of McDermott, said: “With the support of our creditors, employees, customers and suppliers, we have been able to confirm our plan of reorganization less than two months after we initially filed for Chapter 11.”“This is a significant achievement and allows us to emerge in the near-term as a stronger, more competitive player, with a sustainable capital structure that matches the strength of our operating business.”Under the terms of the plan, McDermott will complete a comprehensive restructuring transaction to de-lever its balance sheet and immediately position the company for long-term growth. The transaction will allow the company to emerge with more cash on hand than debt, eliminating over $4.6 billion of debt.The company expects to emerge in the second quarter following the receipt of regulatory approval for the sale of Lummus Technology to the joint partnership.As announced on January 21, 2020, subsidiaries of McDermott entered into a share and asset purchase agreement to sell Lummus Technology to the joint partnership, as the “stalking horse bidder,” for a base purchase price of $2.725 billion, subject to higher or otherwise better bids received through a court-supervised auction process.Proceeds from the sale of Lummus Technology are expected to repay McDermott’s DIP financing in full, as well as fund emergence costs and provide cash to the balance sheet for long-term liquidity.last_img read more

Still a fan, Rashford hurt by Man Utd’s decline

first_imgFILE PHOTO: Marcus RashfordLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Marcus Rashford wants to put Manchester United “back where they belong” after ending speculation over his future by penning a new four-year contract to remain at Old Trafford.The 21-year-old had attracted interest from Barcelona, among others, with his previous deal running out in 2020.However, Rashford, a product of the United academy, wants to lead the rebuilding at United and believes he has felt the Red Devils’ fall from grace under several different managers in recent years more than most as a fan of the club.“It is a huge sense of pride and a huge feeling for me to sign the contract,” Rashford told The Times.“Manchester United are one big family. Some clubs don’t have that. That’s why United are more than a football club to me.“Me being a fan changes the emotional side of it. Say we lose a game, it affects me more than it should because I’m a fan. It hurts every day to see where we are now, (compared) to where we’ve been in the past.“It makes me more determined to put the club back where they belong.”United finished 32 points behind local rivals and champions Manchester City in sixth in the Premier League last season and missed out on Champions League qualification. Rashford believes the 20-time English champions can return to competing for the top honours in the coming seasons.“There’s nothing I want more than to see the club winning the Premier League again, winning the Champions League again,” he added.“Everybody here deserves much, much more than what we’re giving them right now, not only the fans, the club itself. They don’t deserve to be where they are now.“As players, we’re the ones who have the opportunity to try and forget about the past five, six years and put the club back on track.”The appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager to replace Jose Mourinho also played a part in convincing Rashford to stay at the club.And he backed the Norwegian to succeed where David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Mourinho have failed in the six years since Alex Ferguson’s retirement.“The players have faith in the manager now,” said Rashford. “It can take two or three seasons but I feel we’re ready to take the first step.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Proteas fall short in World T20

first_imgWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material Afridi played the pivotal innings for the Pakistanis, cracking 51 off 34 balls, in a total of 149 for 4. Shoab Malik weighed in with 34 off 39, while Kamran Akmal struck a quick-fire 23 off only 12 balls at the top of the order. “These formidable achievements will stand them in good stead as they move on to the meet the next challenges. CSA has every faith in them to continue to be rated as one of the world’s best cricket teams in all forms of the game. He added that Pakistan played their best game, and singled out Shahid Afridi’s contribution with bat and ball. Afridi’s bowling especially, said Smith, made all the difference in the game. He destroyed England with a haul of 3 for 15 in 3.5 overs and was even more devastating against the West Indies, knocking over 4 for 13 in his four overs. Handed a tough test, he aced it. AB de Villiers was the third highest run scorer in the event and Graeme Smith was eleventh on the list. T20 recordCricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Gerald Majola commented: “We must remember that the Proteas have set a world record of seven consecutive T20 international victories. They are also number one in the world at 50-over cricket, and they have just completed their best-ever season in test cricket. NewcomersIt should be remembered, too, that Van der Merwe, like Parnell , is a relative newcomer to the international stage. With players like these emerging, South Africa has the talent and the toughness to become an even better team. They need to do it soon, however, with stars like Kallis, now 33, and Gibbs, 35, closer to the end than the beginning of their careers. Opening bowlersThe South African opening bowling pair, Dale Steyn and Wayne Parnell, were excellent, capturing nine wickets each. Both Van der Merwe and Parnell returned economy rates of less than six runs an over – the standard for excellent in the T20 game – while Johan Botha and Dale Steyn were not far above the mark. The Proteas have the ability to prove they are number one. Yet, despite all the successes between major ICC tournament, that recognition will be given only once they have won one of those major titles. “It’s a very, very disappointing result,” said Smith after the match. “One runs out of words to say when you don’t get over the finishing line.” South Africa’s challenge in the ICC World Twenty 20 came to a halt in the semi-finals at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, England on Thursday, as Graeme Smith and company fell to Pakistan by seven runs. It was a bitterly disappointing result for a team that, up until that point, looked like the best side in the tournament. Afridi undermined the South African batting effort, capturing 2 for 16 in his four overs and removing the dangerous Herschelle Gibbs and AB de Villiers for five and one respectively. He was an easy choice for man of the match.center_img 19 June 2009 ResultsDuring the tournament South Africa thrashed Scotland by 130 runs, edged New Zealand by one run, cruised to a seven-wicket win over England, won by 20 runs against the West Indies, and defeated defending champions India by 12 runs. Some will, no doubt, trot out the by now familiar choker’s tag, but the facts presented by Majola make for impressive reading. After a record number of wins in succession, the law of averages was against the Proteas. While the Proteas have enjoyed a sustained run of success in all forms of the game in recent times, one area in which they have trailed is in the toss – one wonders just how much more successful they could have been with luck at the spin of the coin – and so it proved on Thursday as Pakistan’s Younis Khan won the toss and elected to bat. The impact of an individualIn the 20 overs per side game, individuals have a far greater opportunity to swing the result of a match than in 50 overs a side matches or test matches; the effects of strong individual efforts are dissipated the longer a contest lasts. Unfortunately for South Africa, Afridi fired in their semi-final showdown, and his contribution proved to be the difference between the sides. It looked, at one stage, as if Pakistan might reach 170, but excellent bowling at the death by Dale Steyn and Wayne Parnell halted their momentum. Despite yet another disappointing exit from a big International Cricket Council event, a look at the bigger picture reveals that it was a very good tournament for South Africa, and it underlined the fact that the Proteas have become the best all-round team in the game in all forms of cricket. Kallis, who was controversially left out of the South African team for the inaugural World Twenty20 two years ago, proved his worth by leading all run scorers in the tournament, totalling 238. He also achieved the highest average – 59.50 – for those players who scored at least 100 runs. South African replySouth Africa, in their reply, managed 142 for 5 in their 20 overs. Jacques Kallis top scored with 64 off 54 deliveries, while JP Duminy finished unbeaten on 44 off 39 balls, but there was little other support. Among the bowlers, Roelof van der Merwe picked up 10 wickets, tied with Shahid Afridi and Ajantha Mendis, and trailing only Lasith Malinga on 11 and Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal on 12. The emergence of Parnell was particularly significant. The 19-year-old, in his first major tournament, showed that he has what it takes to make a lasting impact on the game. Displaying the temperament of a veteran, he was superb opening the innings with the new ball and just as good finishing an innings.last_img read more
