Longyi by Kudumomo

By Marianne Comilang

Across the world’s myriad cultures, there don’t seem to be any universal norms in fashion, style, and standard attire. In some countries, for example, skirts remain the strict domain of women’s fashion. In other parts of the world, it is quite commonplace to see both men and women donning sarongs or skirts.

In Myanmar, the skirt, in this case called the longyi, is commonly worn by both genders as everyday attire. Ever since south Indian immigrants introduced the longyi to Myanmar in the 19th century, this sarong-like tube of cloth – worn floor-length and wrapped around the waist - has been the traditional mode of dress for many of Myanmar’s people.

Dry skin is a common issue in people of all ages, but it tends to be more prominent during the aging process. As the skin ages, it is more prone to losing moisture, and this is due to the natural process of collagen and hyaluronic acid depleting from the system. Skin becomes more prone to dryness, and during this time, the skin also becomes more prone to wrinkles. On a positive note, skin dryness can be easily treated, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing new wrinkles from forming. Listed below are 9 of the best treatments for dry skin wrinkles.
 
1. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is an extremely potent moisturizer, and when applied to the skin, it works wonders on dryness and irritation. Applying pure Vitamin E oil directly to your wrinkles can help to minimize their appearance and promote skin cell regeneration and healing, as the Vitamin E deeply absorbs and allows the skin to lock in moisture for long periods of time.

2. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is an amazing natural treatment for dry skin wrinkles. Aloe vera contains high levels of antioxidants, and its gel-like texture cools and soothes dry skin. You can apply pure aloe vera gel underneath the eyes to minimize bags and puffiness, and you can also apply the gel directly on the wrinkles around the eyes to minimize the appearance of crow's feet and fine lines caused by dryness.
 
3. Grape Seed Oil
Grape seed oil is rich in phenols, substances that promote hydration and elasticity. When applied directly to the skin, grape seed oil deeply penetrates and aids in skin cell regeneration and collagen production, allowing for soft, supple, and hydrated skin.
 
4. Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body and aids in tissue and joint lubrication. When applied to the skin, it helps to trap in moisture and promote suppleness. There are a variety of all-natural wrinkle creams that contain hyaluronic acid as well as additional emollient ingredients that work wonders on crow's feet, lip wrinkles and dryness caused by dehydrated skin.
 
5. Retinol
Retinol is the purest form of Vitamin A, a potent antioxidant that not only moisturizes the skin, it also gently exfoliates, allowing dry skin to fade away and reveal healthy and fresh new skin cells. Retinol is a common ingredient in all-natural eye and face creams due to its powerful healing and regenerating properties.

6. Green Tea Moisturizer
Green tea has been used for centuries as a cure-all for illnesses and is well known for its healing properties. It is a common ingredient in all-natural skin moisturizers due to its high catechin content. Catechins are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to fight free radicals and boost the immune system. Green tea moisturizers nourish and hydrate the skin, protecting it from future wrinkles and encouraging new skin cell production and regeneration.
 
7. Natural Facial Masks
Facial masks work well to nourish the skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles caused by dryness. An all natural mask containing avocado, banana and oatmeal is easy to make and works wonders on the skin. Applying this soothing mask once a week will not only moisturize the skin, the ingredients will deeply penetrate the skin and provide long lasting protection. Bananas and avocado contain high amounts of potassium as well as natural oils that help to balance out and protect dry skin, allowing for a beautiful and healthy glow.
 
8. Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter is deeply hydrating and contains high amounts of Vitamin K, a potent antioxidant that is essential in skin cell renewal. It also contains high amounts of Vitamin E, one of nature's most powerful moisturizers. The combination of vitamins along with the essential oils of the cocoa seed allow for deep hydration, minimizing wrinkles and preventing wrinkles from forming.
 
9. Evening Primrose Oil
Evening primrose oil has been used for centuries as a treatment for wrinkles, as it contains high amounts of fatty acid that are essential for moisture and skin cell renewal. Evening primrose oil can be applied alone, directly to the skin, and it is also found in a variety of all-natural wrinkle creams.
 
In Conclusion
Aging, dry skin and wrinkles are all part of the aging process, and are easily treatable. By taking some simple steps to moisturize the skin on a daily basis using all-natural wrinkle creams, you will find that your dry skin and wrinkles are greatly reduced, allowing for beautiful and youthful skin.

Will the new Ford F-150 Aluminum Design Carry Over to Global Ranger?

At the 2014 North American International Auto Show, we saw the future of Ford’s pickup design – aluminum and a lot of it. Through various displays, Ford showed how the truck could handle a beating and still deliver great fuel economy. One question that didn’t get addressed is: what about the Global Ford Ranger? Wouldn’t it benefit from the weight savings and improved fuel economy of aluminum design?

Ford launched the Global Ranger in 2011 as a compact, diesel-powered truck that left many then- U.S. Ranger owners salivating. The truck is being offered in more than 180 countries and is not available in the U.S. Basically, Ford figured that many U.S. Ranger customers would simply step up to the F-150. That hasn’t exactly happened and Ford has taken its share of criticism from automotive writers/experts and its own fans for not offering the Ranger in the U.S.

With the new F-150 being launched with a smaller Ecoboost engine it is mostly assured that Ford is still not considering bringing back the Ranger. (It may consider offering a small F-100 variant although that remains to seen). Ford says that the mid-size truck market in North America doesn’t make sense for them and don’t see a feasible way to build a Ford Ranger that would fit into its product portfolio.

In other countries like Australia, the “ute” pickups are quite popular. In fact, the used car market in Australia for the Global Ranger is quite strong . These utilitarian pickups don’t have the full-size competitors that are made in North America and thus, the business plan to build them for those markets is much stronger.

This begs the question though, if the aluminum-based design of the new F-150 is so superior, could it benefit the Global Ranger? The answer is undoubtedly yes. Will Ford build it? Most likely not.

Pop art and fashion have gone hand in hand for years, dating back to the 1950s. Men’s fashion has seen a steady increase graphic, printed and patterned clothing over the past few years, with pop art being at the forefront of this. Brands like FLY53 have had demonstrated their passion for pop art since the beginning.

Pop art takes the mundane and expresses this through fashion

We can’t discuss pop art without mentioning arguably the most famous artist of this genre, Andy Warhol. Warhol fused art and fashion to create pop art, to bring together celebrity culture, fashion, art, and advertising. Even in fashion today, Warhol’s work is featured on tops, bags, shoes, and anything else you can think of, with designers paying tribute to the man.

Whether it’s a printed t-shirt of comic strips, a jumper with a famous quote on, the layering up of a red jumper and blue shirt, men’s fashion is very much being influenced by pop art, and this is particular relevant right now, as fashion is becoming increasingly influenced by art to expand and develop new ways for people to express their personality through what they wear.

Being bold through the fusion of bright colours is very much the order of the day for men’s fashion at the moment. This type of striking symbolism is connected to pop art; just think about the Warhol soup cans, or the Marilyn Monroe print, both used a mixture of bold colours to stand out, and draw people in, so to that end, men’s fashion can very much relate to this technique of boldness through fashion.
