Reach for a vitamin C serum daily to help keep the wrinkles at bay. A topical vitamin C serum is an oil-and-water-based cosmetic product that delivers concentrated vitamin C. Vitamin C serums, whether from the drugstore or a high-end department store, offer two major advantages over moisturizers: rapid absorption and deep penetration. These two traits create a distinctive characteristic of serums -- their ability to produce results in less time than other products. Vitamin C serums are specialists designed to deliver a high concentration of vitamin C. Although the formula is oil-and-water-based, it is created to have an oil-free texture.

is the holiest month for Muslims. Every year, around the world fast during daylight hours, but what is it really about? P What is Ramadan? Ramadan is the ninth month in the Muslim lunar calendar. Healthy adult Muslims fast in Ramadan from dawn until dusk. This includes abstaining from drinking, eating, immoral acts and anger. Other acts of worship such as prayer, reading the Quran and charity are also encouraged during Ramadan. Muslims also believe that the Quran was revealed in Ramadan.

It is common for mosques to host large iftars, especially for the poor and needy. Nightly prayers called Tarawih are also held in mosques after iftar.
Flowers play an important role during Easter time. Lily plants can be found on the altar and in many homes, with the beautiful trumpet-shaped white flowers symbolizing purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life - the spiritual essence of Easter.

The Bermuda lily was introduced to America in 1880, but a severe virus in 1898 ruined the Bermuda lily industry. Lily bulb production came to the U.

You may have been told that in order to be healthy, you must drink eight glasses of water each day, and each glass must contain 8 ounces of water. You may also have been told that only water will fulfill this requirement, not other liquids that contain either caffeine or alcohol. Both ideas appear to be myths, according to Dr. Heinz Valtin of the Dartmouth College Medical School. In a 2002 paper published in the "American Journal of Physiology," Dr. Valtin found no scientific evidence supporting consumption of eight glasses of water daily. He did find studies that suggested that caffeinated beverages and mild alcoholic drinks, such as beer, can contribute to the water needed by your body. What do you, the trees, and a hamster have in common? Give up? You all need water. All living things
