    Exfoliate Naturally With Sand

    Beaches are a great way to relax while soaking in the sun at the same time. What could be better than reading a book, enjoying the sound of the ocean or engaging in water activities? The only downside about the beach is all that sand. It ends up in the folds of your bathing suit, tangled in your hair and in between your toes. When you’re frantically trying to remove all the sand from your feet at the end of the day, consider this. Beach sand is a natural way to soften the feet.

    Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells on the body’s surface revealing a new layer of skin underneath. This new layer of skin is softer and smoother because it has not been exposed to natural elements. Every time you walk on the beach with bare feet, you are reaping the benefits of exfoliation. This is because sand is coarse enough to help loosen the dry skin that builds up on your feet.

    With exfoliation, you can:

    Look Younger Your skin can tell someone a lot about your age. Wrinkled hands and feet, creases around the eyes and sagging skin are all signs of aged skin. Exfoliation reveals smooth, younger looking skin. If done on a regular basis, it can slow down the aging process.

    Exude Radiance Have you ever wondered why models and actresses always seem to have a glow about them? Well, it is not all about just using makeup. Exfoliation gives skin a natural glow that you cannot get from makeup. If you suffer from dull, tired skin exfoliation is a great way to keep your skin glowing.

    Feel Better, Literally You will notice a difference in the way your skin feels immediately. It will be soft to the touch and very smooth.

    Be Healthy Exfoliation cleanses the skin and opens the skin’s pores. This helps to reduce breakouts and fade blemishes.

    While exfoliation is beneficial, too much of it can actually dry or irritate the skin. Exfoliating once a week is a good place to start. Always follow up with a hydrating lotion to replace any moisture lost during the exfoliation process. So, if you are hitting the beach all the time, throw a bottle of lotion in your beach bag as well.

    Most of us go to a salon for our foot care needs. That is probably because we do not know too much about taking care of our own feet. Being pampered at a pedicure salon can be fun, but it can also be very expensive and you probably find yourself hiding your feet in between pedicure sessions.

    When exploring Caribbean Islands, one of many interesting facets of the culture are the different languages of the Caribbean Islands which are spoken. After you listen to English spoken there, it’s not American or of Great Britain dialects, but it has a unique accent that is definitely extremely charming to listen to. It definitely illustrates the diversity of the cultural background, and a history of the Caribbean that is intriguing and complex.

    You will find four official languages voiced within the Caribbean. However in addition there are a number of creoles and local patois (hybrid languages). A large number of the Creole languages of the Caribbean Islands are typically used for inter-ethnic communication. When looking at the different languages of the Caribbean, the four main languages are:

    Spanish (the earliest European language introduced and covers West and Central Caribbean)

    Dutch (on those islands of the Wonderland Antilles)

    English (North, Central and East)

    French (Central and East)

    In addition, there are several additional lesser native languages. Some of the local languages have grown extinct or are dying out.

    Within the Caribbean, the official language is generally determined by which ever colonial power (England, Spain, France, or the Netherlands) held sway on the island originally or longest. English would be the first or second language in many Caribbean islands in addition to being the unofficial “language of tourism”. It’s the state language of Anguilla, Antigua, the Bahamas, Barbados the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, St. Croix, St. John St. Kitts, and St. Thomas.

    Spanish is the language voiced by the majority of individuals, as it is the state language of the two largest islands, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, as well as sharing English as the official language of Puerto Rico and Trinidad/Tobago.

    French is spoken in Haiti, Martinique, and Guadeloupe, and St. Martin.

    Dutch is the official language of Curacao, St Maarten, and two very small islands.

    People who speak different languages of the Caribbean Islands dialects, which might be called Patois or Creole, speak a language that consists of an amalgamation between European English, Spanish, French, Dutch and African languages. That said, tourists end up finding themselves richly rewarded after they hear a ‘native language’ voiced, often a Creole is used as the domestic language.

    Right after obtaining independence, several Caribbean countries, in searching for national unity, decided on one language (usually the former colonial language) to be used in government and education. Recently, Caribbean countries have become more and more mindful of the significance of linguistic diversity. Language policies that are becoming developed today are pretty much targeted at multilingualism.
