    Five Celebrity Beauty Hacks We All Need This Season

    Spring is coming soon and you might have to be without your facial armor, so, here are

     FIVE CELEBRITY BEAUTY HACKS WE ALL NEED, THIS SPRING.

    LINDA MTOBA, or as she refers to herself: “THE GIRL WITH A WHOLE LOT OF DISNEY”, looks nothing less of a Disney princess every time we see her. The recently married, Isibaya star admits, in an article, that her good looks are by inheritance. She does mention, however, that to keep her skin looking flawless, she is never without sunscreen. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light gradually damages the elastane in the skin. Elastane is what keeps your skin from sagging. According to WEBMD, sun damage may not be apparent when you are young, but will definitely show later in life – and that’s not even half of it. The immediate effects of sunburn are discoloration and freckles.

    Here are my top three sunscreen products to keep you covered this season.

    •  LIPADOL (SPF 20).  This oil-based product is perfect for everyday wear. Don’t be scared away by the fact that it’s oil based, this oil supplements the skin’s natural oily layer that is stripped away by sun, wind and water. Please note, that this product is not for long days in the sun, rather, days where there is minimum sun exposure. This product will cost you approximately R79.95 (125ml)
    • CATAPHIL DAYLONG HIGH PROTECTION SPF FACE AND BODY LIPOSMAL SPRAY (SPF 30).  If you have sensitive skin, this brand name will sound very familiar to you. Not only is this sunscreen great for reaching hard to reach areas, it is water resistant and was scientifically designed not to block your pores. This product is good for everyday use and can be worn on the beach. This product will cost you, approximately R154.95 (150ml)

    BIONIKE DEFENSE SUN (SPF 50). This light-weight product, absorbs quickly and does not leave a sticky residue on your skin. It has been proven to protect from long term sun damage and has the “PRO-REPAIR Complex” that helps to strengthen “repair” mechanisms in the skin. This product will cost you approximately R149.95 (100ml).

    BOITY THULO is all about exercising regularly. Exercise increases blood flow in the body. The blood carries vital nutrients as well as oxygen to the cells in the body. This process will have your skin nourished and repaired from sun damage as well as pollutants. When the pores in the skin dilate during exercise, sweat carries the dirt and oil to the skins surface.

    NB. Ensure that you cleanse your face after a workout.

    GABRIELLE UNION has been twenty-four years old for a very long time. If you were wondering what kind of magic this fresh looking forty-four-year-old has been using to achieve this look, you are not alone. Gabrielle claims that she drinks a gallon (about eighteen glasses) of water every day. When asked how she drinks so much water in a single day, Union said that she drinks the first half of the gallon before noon, and the rest of the gallon, in the afternoon. This is extraordinary, but it seems to be working well. Ladies, hydration is key, for healthy looking skin.

    Here’s how you can hydrate your skin:

    • Drink at least eight glasses of water a day
    • Don’t wash your face with hot water. Keep the water warm (as cold as bearable)
    • Once a week, during your cleansing routine, before toning, apply a thick layer of non-scented aqueous cream for, at least, fifteen minutes and then, with toner/micellar water, wipe the aqueous cream off. You can then continue with your moisturizing routine.

    BONANG MATHEBA popularly known as QUEEN B! is always on the move. In her interview with True Love magazine earlier this year, she dished out five of her beauty secrets. One of them were: never going to bed with makeup on. No matter how tired you are, grab a wipe and give your skin a breather. Going to bed with makeup on will cause avoidable hiccups, such as breakouts, infection, broken eyelashes, wrinkles, chapped lips…the list goes on. It is a nightmare.

    Here are make-up removal products that will make this process a million times better and quicker.

    • GANIER MICELLAR WATER

    This one is my ultimate favorite makeup removing product- simply because it is so versatile. Not only will this product remove your makeup, you can use it as a toner as well. It has been proven to lift dirt from the skin, which means that there is no painful scrubbing for you anymore. Better yet, throw the GARNIER MICELLAR WATER MAKEUP REMOVING TOWELETTS in your shopping basket as well, and you will be looking forward to removing your makeup every time.

    Approximately R85.00 (400ml)

    • EUCERIN DERMATO CLEAN REFRESHING CLEANSING GEL NORMAL TO COMBINATION SKIN

    If you have sensitive skin, this product is for you. It is not fragranced, has no alcohol and is yet very effective.

    Approximately R156.00 (200ml)

    • NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST

    Neutrogena has come up with a revolutionary skin regime that keeps skin hydrated and they were sure to keep this tradition up – even in makeup removal. This product is perfect for sensitive skin as it cleanses and re-hydrates your skin at the same time.

    • Approximately R79.00 (200ml)

    BEYONCE follows doctors’ orders and exfoliates daily. In 2014, Beyoncé’s dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer released a book about skincare. In the book, Lancer simply describes exfoliating as, “just removing dull-skin debris and allowing oxygen to transfer the lower layers of skin.” There are many ways to exfoliate. Here are some ideas.

    • THE EXFOLIATION BRUSH.

    You could either get yourself an electric exfoliation brush, or a basic one. The electric one has a spinning nozzle which works extra hard to lift the dead cells from your skin, whereas the basic one will need you to do all the work. If this brush is cleaned every day, it is perfect for everyday use.

    Approximately R39.90 (Basic)/ R 120 (Electric)

    • CLEAN & CLEAR DAILY EXFOLIATING WASH

    This product has been good to so many of us – especially when we were suffering from acne in our teenage years, and guess what, CLEAN AND CLEAR “still got it”. This product is great for everyday exfoliation and will not leave your skin dry.

    Approximately R51.00 (150 ml)

    Keep every layer of yourself beautiful and where ever you go this season, don’t forget to take your shine along.

    Sophie Ndaba’s ICU Rumours?

    Sophie Ndaba has become a controversy, following weeks of an anxiety-ridden atmosphere, the star has become strong minded and resorted to sharing a video on Instagram to squeeze the death hearsay concerning her from fans and the public.

    This began two weeks back after her image was circulating on the Twitter trend list, thereafter the tittle-tattle spread of her death. It keeps on getting better; prior to her alleged death, she was body shamed for her weight loss. I mean how much more can one-person deal?

    Although through her Instagram video she did not disappoint; Sophie was on point, her bundles of hair were flowing with ease, her makeup could not look any better. Which served as evidence to her healthy, much alive self; so this confirms she is not dead, she is still kicking people.

    “Living with Diabetes is not a death sentence. I’m living a fabulous life,” she said.

    When the rumours surfaced, Sophie trended on Twitter; fans overloaded the platform with questions filled with concerns, confusion in a search to affirm the credibility of the rumours. Now, apparently, someone mentioned the Television show – Expresso to be the one that announced the news to the public, although the show refuted the claims with haste. No transparent sign to who or how the rumours were ignited.

    “These past few weeks I’ve been trending and trending and trending. It’s quite boring because I am not dead, I am not in ICU and I am not a zombie.”

    She still had the courtesy to show gratitude by thanking her fans that are showing support; she addressed the negative individuals as well and advised them to focus on better things than feeding on the downfall of others.

    Boity, becomes a rapper

    Who could have thought Boity was a rapper? This dates back to her interview with Slikour On Life, she has an independent recollection sharing the same space with the likes of Khuli Chana throughout a fight circa 2014.

    She states she was rapping along – “I was rapping along to, I believe, a Jay-Z song, and I remember Khuli being like, ‘we should do a song together,’ but I didn’t take it seriously, because I was like yeah, whatever,”  – this was stated during the interview.

    Love for Hip-hop has been part of her life’s passion, she was waiting for the courage and the right time. We are happy, she followed her passion and keep pushing.

    [“It’s been years. Everyone who is close to me knows that this is something that’s always been there. It’s not something that I would venture into, but the love and the passion for it has always been there. But the opportunity came about, and I guess the universe listened to my silent dreams, and I was presented with the opportunity.”]

    The beautiful part concerning the collaboration with Nasty C; she says, Nasty C, pushed and motivated her to drop the single. The world would be a better place if we encouraged each other to be the best that God created us to be.

    [“Nasty was like, ‘look you’ve got the talent, I’ve got a couple of songs for you, let’s do it.’ After he said it, I called him three weeks later, I was like, ‘were you being serious?’ And he was like, ‘I do not play with music, I wouldn’t risk that. So I want you to come into the studio, and let’s do it.”]

    Well, it happened, and its happening. She said she accepted the invite and welcomed direction and navigation. The good news is the Hip-Hop community, to be particular the women seem to be welcoming to her new venture in the rapping game. She dropped names such as Gigi Lamayne, Nadia Nakai and Rouge. Even our old G – Slikour is impressed with her technical skills and not missing the beat when delivering her lines.

    It’s amazing how this collaboration began as a spontaneous act on club 808 when Nasty C was there performing. Everyone thought they were just having fun, but look at what that has produced.  It has produced a hit people!

    They debuted the song “Whuz Dat – on Metro Fm, it was quite a surprise to everyone’s ear to hear our princess rap. And the other rappers have already talked on a collaboration when she has settled in and ready to play more of the game.

    [“Gigi was one of the first people to DM me, she was like: “Yo man, I’m so proud of you, taking this step and whenever you’re ready to do a collabo or a feature or whatever, I am on there,“ Gigi is fantastic,”]  – she stated.

    Even our young Mabree – Nomuzi Mabhena is on her team. “Nomuzi as well, as much as she hadn’t heard the song yet she was like: People have been so positive, I’m rooting for you… “Boity mentioned.

    Spread That Shea Butter

    Shea butter is everywhere and for good reason. The butter for the Gods comes from the Shea nut (pun intended) of the Karite tree which can be found throughout the Savannah belt of West Africa. The word Karite can be translated to Tree of Life. This name was rightly given as Shea butter has been praised for its ability to seemingly rebirth the skin and hair. So how exactly can this buttery beauty be used? Read on to find out.

    First things first- whatever Shea butter product you’re using you need to ensure that it’s unrefined as possible. Unrefined means that it hasn’t been as processed and still contains all it’s natural ingredients. Unrefined Shea butter will have a label that says unrefined. Then again that doesn’t prove anything. Secondly, when it comes to odour your Shea butter should not be odourless nor should it smell like a medicine cabinet. 

    • Body Rub

    Shea butter can be used as a moisturizer when applied to dry areas on the body. The butter is very high in Vitamins A, E & F which aids in cell regeneration and circulation. This means that Shea butter has the capacity to help the appearance of stretch marks as well as reduce cellulite.

    Pat your skin dry with a towel. Once you’ve dried yourself off after a bath, use your fingertips to apply the Shea butter to your body. Make sure to massage it in circular motions that that your body heat will melt the butter making it easier for the skin to absorb it

    • Made Up

    As it’s a great moisturizer, it would be a good idea to apply Shea butter on before putting on makeup. It’ll help replenish the skin. It also helps with eye bags and dark marks.

    • Whip Your Hair

    There’s a reason why Shea butter can be found as an ingredient in hair products. It helps with dandruff as well as sealing in moisture. Not to mention it’s quite the volumizer.

    It can be used as part of a deep conditioning routine. Massage the butter into your hair. Wrap it in a towel and let it set for 10-15 minutes. Rinse it out and from there use your choice of shampoo and conditioner.

    • And pout

    Yep. Shea butter also caters to your lips. You can actually create your own lip balm using Shea butter.

    • Stop scratching

    Shea butter has anti-inflammatory elements so it can reduce itchiness that comes from insect bites as well as limit the chances of the bitten are swelling.

    What are you waiting for? Grab your purse and go get that (unrefined) Shea butter!

    HHP dies, the dangers of depression.

    JOHANNESBURG –

    We have lost yet another artist and Mzansi mourns the passing of our Hip-hop legend (HHP.)

    One thing for sure; his death reveals the dangers of depression in our country. Many are the speculations circulating his death. Although one thing is for sure, he was experiencing depression; they said it to be years of depression, he was battling and finally, it ended his life.

    HHP’s real name Jabulani Tsambo has left us in shock; one of his hip-hop artist friend Slikour says there is not enough information circulating around about the effects of depression. He reckons our country and communities need to be told concerning the dangers of this disease.

    “I don’t know how we can start teaching ourselves to deal with it, people who live with it and what advice we give them.”  – Slikour

    Fellow South African’s, continue sending their condolences after the death of the legend; the respected,  the honoured by most in our country – HHP is indeed a legend in the music business even in his death.

    The platform of social media helps fanatics show love in such cases; many have been paying their respects to the fallen star – Jabulani Tsambo. Even our beloved Cassper Nyovest has joined,  highlighting his disbelief of the matter. One thing that stands out to most people is his sense of humour.

    “ He’ll be remembered for being himself. He’ll be remembered for humour as well, he was one for the funniest people you can ever be around. Obviously, he’ll be remembered for his rhymes, for his flow. He was larger than life.” – DJ Cleo also sated his recollection of the legend.

    This has evoked the concern that depression has on people. We need to be alert to the dangers depression poses on people from the early stages. When you have the thoughts of death, wishing to kill yourself to end your misery, it heads you to depression.

    You need to talk to someone or find professional help. Killing yourself cannot be the only solution, there are other ways we can deal with depression. Life can get difficult, but we have the power to overcome, we need to stand strong and never give up in life.

    Take care of your skin this summer.

    We wear our skin and, usually, we want to do it with pride and dignity. Your skin is not only your protective shell or a tool you used to touch or an ageing dictator. These things play a vital role, but also your skin is an important vessel, this means you need to take care better care of your skin. Summer has arrived and the UV levels can damage exposed skin. It may feel amazing; out and about in the sun, but the effects of sun exposure may not agree with you in the long run.

    Some stats; (American Academy of Dermatology – ADD) Approximately one in five Americans will grow some skin cancer during their lives. Those are not good statistics if you ask me, hence we have to be cautious in how we care for our skin.

    Make small changes

    Everything must begin gradually, you need originally prepare yourself before the winter ends. Replace some of your skin care products as you approach summer. It’s already summer, so let us work with what we have.

    It may happen, you are using soft cream cleansers that are gentle to the skin with hydrating moisturizers on your skin to prevent the dry, parched weather. Although, now since summer, alternate to lighter moisturizers and some foam cleansers to cater for the heat.

    Face care

    What is important is what you have on the inside, but do not neglect your face, people first recognise you with your facet right?  Every day, you are responsible to take better care of your skin. Especially during summer. Have a skincare regimen that promotes healthy skin.

    Make sure it hydrates your skin and keeps it polished. Be careful of your hands constantly touching your face, beware of dust and sweat exposed to your skin. Pimples and break out, and eczema is a pandemic that destroys the confidence in most cases and especially during summer.

    If it happens this dilemma affects you, seek medical help but wash your face throughout the day 2 – 3 times a day. Sometimes using a face wash or scented soap can cause us problems, even clean, pure water works.

     I read an article and Dr Deepali recommended exfoliation as one of the ways to keep your face clean.

    “Utilising a scrub once or twice a week in summers for all skin types is important, but, which scrub depends on your skin type. Acne prone skin needs Multani mitti (fullers earth), Chandan, rose water and basil whereas if you have dry and matured skin you should use egg white, lemon, Chandan and curd with a pinch of turmeric and besan too” –  states Dr Deepali.

    Sun protection, sun protection, sun

    Protection

    This cannot be stressed enough, sun protection is essential throughout the year. It has been stated by research; even though during winter the UVB rays are frail but the skin ageing Uva rays does not differ throughout the seasons.

    [“My recommendation is to wear an SPF30-50 to slow down the ageing process and keep your skin in optimal condition long-term. Although, should you have down-graded your SPF (or even worse, not used one) in the winter, then now is certainly the time to go back to daily SPF – no excuses.”]

    Avoid burning at all costs

    Do not expose yourself to the sun necessarily. I direct this to all skin types, be cautious of your so-called “sun tanning.” If you do not monitor your skin by protecting it then you will suffer the consequences.

    Your dress code is essential in summer, wear your hat; the rays are harmful and they can reach your scalp and your beautiful, handsome ears. Make sure you go for the hats with broad brims because they cover much more compared to using a cap.

    Why do you wake up in the morning?

    When you have a transparent understanding of your “Why”, it provides you with a comprehensive way of thinking and helps you make better choices, concerning your loved ones, business and work. This in return gives you a sense of fulfillment; a life of tranquility and serenity.

    THE WHY

    Why do wake up in the morning and do what you do? This has to do with everyone, regardless of your profession and social standing in life. This could be a mother, business leader, a clergyman OR a teenager. Do you have an understandable sense of direction or are you just taking each day as it comes, going with the flow?

    As an entrepreneur when you set up your organization, you need to discuss the “why” of what your business mission statement is about, otherwise, you won’t make it. In order to carry out your targeted goals and deliver what you have set out; it is pivotal for your “why” to be coherent.

    The world has no mercy to those that meander with no understanding of their purpose in life. How else do you hope to enjoy what you do when you do not even know why you are doing it? Life can be tedious, monotonous: you wake up, get ready, go to school, go to varsity, go to work; then repeat the whole entire scenario the following day.

    Every day you have to go through these emotions; you might be thinking: education is needed to have a job and I need a job for my bills to be paid right? These can stand out as logical reasons for most of us and to an extent they are mandatory, but is that what your world is about? Mediocrity is birthed out of doing something out of necessity than with a burning need.

    Think about this; if you are straightforward about why you do everything that you do; will that not produce clarity in your decisions? Your relationships will improve because of the intentions behind them; when they are clearly understood. The career you choose; the business you set up and the community development program you partake in, will be done with a sense of direction. You will be driven by what motivates you. All right, now, the biggest question: Do you want to live such an existence?

    I am talking to people that lack a sense of fulfillment in their lives. Do you crave to go to bed fulfilled and satisfied? Let us delve into what concepts to consider for a satisfied life.  What is driving you, a Lamborghini, Ferrari, or a bicycle? What is your motivating force, what turns your engine on? If you have uncovered this principle, you are on the right track, if not, worry not; there is always a chance for transformation as long as you are among the living.

    First, define what “success” means to you. I love how Earl Nightingale defines it – “Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” Do not conform to any book, article or motivational speaker’s definition of success. There is no universal meaning of success. Others will tell you it is power, beauty, money, influence, a certain position in society, is this true for you?

    This is not a one size fits all story, we have the right to define; you have the right to define your own success. Live out your unique purpose, as long as you are fulfilled, who cares about what others think? The reason most of us are stagnant has to do with the universal definition of success.

    People are diverse, blessed with each a unique set of fingerprints. Which makes it possible to want different things out of life.  Create a Life – Purpose Statement Take a moment out of your busy schedule to write your mission statement or maybe you can call it a vision statement. Simultaneously, the conception and mission statements should show your purpose.

    They navigate while you are walking on your journey, leading you to victory. Describe on paper what is your definition of a healthy working system. What are people doing and what experience’s are they having in your world? Decide what your role in that world will be? Then you will have a plain understanding of what your life will be. Once you have constructed a mission statement, identify what makes your tail wiggle, and complete on the inside.

    Contemplate further on the reasons, and compile goals that you will target on a daily base to draw tighter to your “Why”. When I read a book by Stephen. R. Covey on the 7 – Habits of Highly Effective People; on habit 2: Begin with the end in mind, he helps to put matters into perspective. What is habit 2 trying to convey? It is identified with a mental image – the capacity to picture in your perceiving what has not yet manifested.

    It is stepping by faith, believing that it has happened before you can have what you want; see it in your mind first and support it. You have to create it mentally; believe that is how things are done. Mentally created before the physical manifestation. This is compared to building a house; a blueprint is required before the construction can take place. When you don’t take a moment to visualise your life, the somewhat person you want to be and the objects you want to carry out; how then do you plan to get to your desired end?

    When you are not deliberate concerning the decisions in your life, others will make a plan for you and you will end up living by default. Take a look around you, what are you doing and how can what you are doing be used to push yourself towards your vision? MMmmhh… If you have not started asking questions, question yourself; am I getting warmer where I want to be in life?

    Do not sabotage yourself any further, no man is promised tomorrow, reach hold of today. Of course, we still call to be pragmatic and adaptable, people evolve, you need to be prepared to alter things as you progress. Your sense of success might be different a year from now, don’t be rigid, but welcome innovation, always find what triggers your X-factor.

    Don’t wish to be someone else, even the Kardashians struggle with Low Self-Esteem.

    The media bombards us with the epitome of beauty; the Kardashians appear to be the guide through our social media. They design every Instagram picture, video to evoke envy from fanatics; to yearn for the impossible beauty standards. Flawless skin, 0 size –  waist, and the big butts. The money; the man and the list is endless.

    You look at your life and think; “why can’t I look like that?”. It never dawns on you that these people are human beings with the same struggles as any other person. But then again, the facade that continues to perpetrate in the “forever happy” moments with friends and family through social media; it has become easy to accept the illusion.

    First, how do you compare yourself with someone with 100 million – followers from all over the world?

    Although, you realize that even wealth, beauty and stardom do not come packaged with high – self-esteem. When you are in the public eye most of the time, you are more vulnerable and at a high risk of a low self – esteem. With Facebook updates and Instagram comments, people see the need to express; they have a mouthful to share and most of it is pessimistic. Hence the importance of learning the traits of what might lead to a low self-esteem from the early stages and prevent it from causing you depression.

    When you hear the name – Kim Kardashian what goes through your mind; well that is a very controversial name, so there are a lot that surfaces. But one thing we can agree upon is her obsession with her appearance. It’s all about presentation with her, “perfection” for the world. We do not juxtapose people who appear to be “perfect” –  with people suffering from a low self- esteem. She seems to exude confidence, right?

    Have you ever experienced a day in your life where you wore the best outfit, makeup on sleek, arched eyebrows, and everyone thought you look outstanding? But deep down you did not feel beautiful enough. You kept on looking at others and thought to yourself; if I looked like her, then life would be better. Do you see what I mean? You can give people an illusion; we judge based on external factors and forget what happens on the inside.

    Let’s look at it this way, if we are wrong and Kim K is a confident person; why is she always altering her appearance, trying her utmost best to be “perfect,” (whatever that means?) She always dresses in the most seductive clothing; sometimes nude, uploading these images to the world to receive feedback. When you upload your images on social media, you are sourcing out feedback on how glorious you look. Looking for others to brush your ego,  scouting for validation and the approval of others.

    I understand, we need to take care of ourselves, and I always encourage improvement. Although, we need to remember; a thin line lies between enhancing what you have and pushing yourself because you seek validation . When you are sure of who you are; you don’t strive to prove to others you look good. You decide what you will perceive as good, regardless of what others say or think.

    Then we have our second Kardashian sister if you have watched the reality show, you know how severe her low self-esteem has been throughout the years. Her sisters, Kim K shadowed her, she has admitted to having a low self-esteem and had trouble showing her body for sexy – photo shoots. This is mind-blowing, for someone who appears to have it all.

    I mean when she updates her photos; her fans are always praising her on how beautiful she is, why then is she still self-conscious? It goes to show how you can have the fame, money; the lifestyle and still not feel good concerning yourself.

    We cannot dispute; being in front of the camera has its pros and cons. There is pressure, expectation for you to act a certain way;  to appear a certain way. People have ridiculous expectations, they themselves cannot live out. She is beautiful, not like anyone else but just the way she is; similar to her we struggle each day to accept ourselves because we compare how we look like with the next person. The label “ugly” is not her truth; people have a distorted perspective of beauty.

    Oh, my goodness, such an affliction placed on the young Jenner; self – esteem problems, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist for you to pay attention. They have esteemed her as the youngest billionaire; had her lips done – inflated; she shares similar curves with her older sister Kim K (rumor says they are artificial; instant curves).

    She always has heavy makeup. Her goal is to be perfect for the fans, for them to aspire to be her. She runs her own business which should give her ample confidence and has relevance in her celebrity  status. What more could you want from the world? With all that material wealth; enhancement done, still, she struggles with self -acceptance. Is it worth it?

    Behind the money, the lips, half-naked pictures is a young girl who wants to be valued. She is only 21 years young. Hard to believe. So much enhancement done, you could think she is older than her age. The alarming notion is how teenagers look up to her as the epitome of beauty, crazy. The daily struggle of these teenagers trying to meet the impossible standards of beauty and falling into depression is destroying their self-esteem.

    We are under the illusion, believing she has confidence while she is struggling herself. I mean, why does she go through so much for a picture on Instagram? When you look at her younger self-compared to her latest images; It leaves you in total amazement. She does not resemble a person who is confident, rather, someone with a low self-esteem trying so hard to convince the world she is confident.

    Learn the art of falling in love with yourself; appreciate your peculiar traits. They created you with a purpose; for a purpose. You add value to the world. Let no one tell you, you are not beautiful or good enough because you don’t fit societal standards. What you think of yourself is far more important than the opinions of others. No one, not even your idle, the celebrity, should ever make you feel you are not beautiful or worth it.
