I sought out medical aesthetics in Singapore recently due to a condition I’ve noticed as I get older. I think we’ve all heard about someone having a turkey neck? That’s where the skin underneath your chin starts to visibly droop as you get older. I’m not quite to the point of turkey neck, thankfully, but I have noticed a loosening of the skin on the lower part of my face. The reason this happens is that your body doesn’t produce as much collagen as you get older. I needed some help to get that collagen flowing again so my skin would tighten up.

I actually tried just taking collagen supplements at first, but didn’t notice a difference after taking the pills for a few months. A friend who had the same condition suggested I look up an aesthetic clinic here in Singapore to get the help I needed. They apparently …

During a game of baseball with my friends, I was acting as the pitcher. I’ve done pitching for years and I’m pretty good at it. I have a pretty fast arm and can throw some great balls that will get most people out. At our most recent game, I threw a lot of pitches, and after one pitch my arm started to hurt. I had somehow pulled a muscle. After going to the doctor, he told me that my arm would be fine with some rest, and I could take a Soma pill in the meantime to ease the pain.

I’ve heard of a few different pain relieving medications, but I’ve never heard of Soma before the doctor mentioned it. Still, he seemed to think that it would work for my shoulder, so I used it. Once I took one of the pills, I didn’t feel any pain in my …

You either love or hate the hunt for the perfect shoes. If you want to make it more enjoyable, continue reading. The article below is intended to help you do precisely that.

Never wear your sneakers without putting on a pair of socks first. This can be damaging to your foot due to rubbing. In addition, you could experience foot fungus. You need to wear some cotton socks and use foot powder in order to make sure your feet stay dry.

In fact, the best shoes will feel perfect the first time you slip them on. If the pair you are trying do not feel right, do not buy them even if they look great.
