Breast care can never begin too early! Now that you are a Mommy, you will want to make sure you are safe and healthy. Breast Canser is a leading killer of woman, but following a few simple instructions can save your life. Doing a simple self breast examination each month is a must for all woman. Listed below are a few tips to help you get started:
1. Do your breast exam at the same time time each month, make sure to write down the day you do it on your calendar. A good ideas is to get bright colored stickers, put one on the day you plan on doing the exam, that way when you plan on doing it, you can't forget.
2. Look for lumps, hard knots, or skin that thickens or dimples, check for any change in the normal look or feel of your breasts.
3. Report ANY changes to your doctor or nurse.
4. Go for regular breast exams and pap tests
5. Ask you doctor about a mammogram
There are 3 different ways of doing a Self Breast Exam, I am listing them below:
1. Lying Down...
Place a pillow under your right shoulder. Put your right hand under your head. Check your entire breast area with your finger pads of your left hand. Use small circles and follow an up and down pattern. Use light, medium and firm pressure over each area of your breast. Repeat these steps on your left breast.
2. Before a Mirror...
Check for any changes in the shape or look of your breasts. Note any skin or nipple changes such as dimpling or nipple discharge. Inspect your breasts in four steps: arms at side, arms overhead, hands on hips pressing firmly to flex chest muscles, and bending forward
3. In the Shower...
Raise your right arm. With soapy hands and fingers flat, check your right breast. Use the method described in the "Lying Down" step. Repeat on your left breast
Listed Below are some FREE samples offers I have found, now that you have a child, you probably spend all your money on him or her, so here's a few goodies just for you....
Here are three great pieces of information for ya, these are great tips!!! Enjoy...
#1. Wash your face thoroughly. While your face is still
wet, rub in a small amount of petroleum jelly.
Continue wetting your face until the jelly is evenly
spread and does not appear greasy. Many expensive
health spas use this treatment, but never reveal that
this is their secret method. You will be surprised how
smooth and soft your skin feels. Remember that it will
not stay greasy if you continue to add water a little at a time.
#2. Pour apple cider vinegar into a basin of warm water
and splash your face thoroughly with it. Let this dry
without using a towel. If used once a day, this will
restore the natural ph-balance or acid mantle to your
skin. Acne sufferers should try this also, but be sure
to start with a perfectly clean face. Instead of
splashing it on, you can put some in a spray bottle
and just spray it on.
#3. After face is thoroughly washed, spray with cold
mineral water. After you apply makeup spray again.
Your makeup will stay fresher longer.
