How to Get Rid of Burn Scars
Burn scars are the elevated, fibrous tissue left behind after you’ve received a serious first- or second-degree burn. If the scar tissue is relatively light, remove it with a moisturizing cream or silicone gel sheets. For scars left by more serious burns, try removing them through massage therapy or, for very deep or large scars, through surgery. In the case of more serious scarring (e.g., from third-degree burns), you won’t be able to fully remove the scar from your body, but you may be able to lighten the scar’s appearance.
How to Get Glitter Eye Shadow to Stick
Glitter is a fun way to make a dramatic statement with your eye makeup. The problem, though, is getting it to stay put. Thankfully there are a few new products that make it fast and easy to get the glitter to adhere perfectly to your eyes and stay there all night. If you don’t have one of these products yet, but really want to use your glitter eyeshadow, you can make your own primer using items you probably have on hand.

Low-Cholesterol Recipes: Homemade Pickled Ginger (Gari)

4.76 / 5 Stars | 21 Reviews

by Phoena

"Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends."
