    decisiveness is defined as being char-acterized by firmness and decision. Being decisive means that you have the ability to decide. From the strength of a decision you then have the ability to act and we want to help you to

    purchase the best of your decisions. If leadership requires that you are able to make key

    decisions effectively, then decisiveness means being the leader of your own life. Decisiveness is both a skill you can build and an internal state you can summon when you need it.

    Decisive Latino magazine and its experts provide you with decision-making information on a broad array of consumer products and services from a cultural perspective. helps you process buying decisions with features that include video, audio, animated ads, and interactive editorials, where you can find everything you need and where you can be informed by the best experts at the time.

    We want you be part of the Decisive Latino fam-ily, being able to comment on articles and Ask the Experts for advice.

    All decisions are based on complete information and the best choice you can make is with the information you have. You cant know for sure whether your busi-ness idea will fail or succeed, you can gather informa-tion to help you refine it and to understand the risks, but ultimately you need to make a decision.

    The next time you are deciding what to eat, time yourself and only give a minute to answer. Once you get used to making decisions rapidly you will start to realize that clear, firm decision making often results in better decisions then ones where you stew around with the same information over and over again.

    Please visit our new Web site and get your subscrip-tion to the digital version of our magazines, and please, share this with your friends and family.

    This summer, let Decisive Latino help you be more decisive.

    collegiatecomplexionthere is nothing worse on skin than being in college. Your body is still changing and your hor-mones are running rampant, causing breakouts, combination skin, redness, and irritation. stress from new class loads, dating, late night studying (and partying, lets be honest), and just trying to fit in, can wreak havoc on your skin. here is a three-step strategy for you that will get you and your skin back in class with straight as!

    1) ba-bye breakouts! The first step to prevent a breakout is to understand the causes of

    breakouts. There are several reasons as to why your skin breaks outhormones, stress, bacteria and poor diet are the most common. Start an anti-blemish regimen from the inside out with good nutrition.

    INSIDE: For starters, drink at least 48 ounces of water a day and cut greasy or fried foods from your diet. Supplement your diet with vitamins A, C, E (vital antioxidants for cell regeneration) and zinc (or just use my Aqua-less Crystalline each day as a supplement). In your diet, be sure to get plenty of Omega-3s and eat foods rich in protein, isoflavones (through soy), and anti-inflammatory foods (through olive oil).

    OUTSIDE: I recommend cleansing and moisturizing twice daily with a brand that is not overly rich or overly drying (like my BORBA Clarifying line) and supplementing your skin with the appropriate boosters. For example, if you have oily skin, try using a mattifying masque once a week, or if you have blackheads, use a deep exfoliant twice a week. The key with the outside approach is to balance your skin to achieve homeostasis so your skin is less inclined to breakout.

    2) Camouflage the CulPrits!Covering up a breakout is a true art. To begin, wash your face and

    gently exfoliate. After towel-drying, cool down the affected breakout area by applying an ice pack (or some ice cubes in a sandwich bag) for twothree minutes. This will reduce the size and redness of the affected area. Then moisturize your face with your daily moisturizer, taking caution not to irritate the affected area. Then apply non-comedogenic

    makeuplight green over the affected area (to hide any red/pink ar-eas) followed by a foundation (all over), followed by a finishing powder (all over). By the time youre done, the only person who should know that you broke out is yourself.

    3) eat your way to flawless skin! These simple snacks can be thrown in your backpack for a skin boost

    throughout the day or replace greasy late night binges. DAY: Green veggies and other root vegetables, like radishes, are

    great fat-burning foods that help kick-start the body into losing weight. These appetite suppressants are free-radical scavengers and help flush out the system.

    NIGHT: Try c
