Fran Fernández: “This Alcorcón wants more”

first_imgWhat can the last two signings, Perea and Mula, contribute to the team?Well, I think they can contribute a lot to the team. They are two kids that I think will fit very well in the workforce and come very hungry. Mula is going to bring us in the outside game, has an overflow and can add us to completion. Perea is very versatile and can give us different positions. In principle the two would arrive at the match against Numancia.They are two signings made in the early days of the Winter Market and I have the impression that they try to address very diagnostic needs by the coaching staff and the sports management.Yes, it is like that. We are very happy with the squad and the work of the team, but we thought we were somewhat short in some positions. With these movements I think we left the template almost closed. We had several conversations with the sports management and we wanted the additions to arrive soon to join the team as soon as possible since we have a very important January. They are also a profile of young soccer player and wanting to grow up that we wanted him to be with us.Do you consider the incorporation chapter closed? Everything that can be improved will be well received. But with these two signings and with the illusion that we have in the current template we cannot think of anything other than that the template is closed. I am happy with the template I have.Have you forgotten the anger of the game against Extremadura?The words I said in Extremadura have had a great impact. However, I just said something obvious, that there are players who have to give more level of what they are giving because they came to highlight and make a difference. It is time to react. We have the entire second round ahead.Which plot of the game gives you more headaches?We have gone through several phases. We started being very offensive but weak in defense. Little by little we have evolved and improved a lot in defense, but in attack we have room for improvement. Not only can we improve on the goal, in the definition, we have to be more decisive in attack.Keep growingWhat is true is that Alcorcón has competed in all matches.I think the only game we haven’t competed against is Zaragoza. I think that the last three games have been superior and we have generated, but we have not added victories. We need something else on the offensive plot.Are the next weeks decisive to see what the Alcorcón will fight at the end of the season?We are in a quiet situation, but with an eye on the backs that come very strong. We want more and we are working for it. I think we have to improve in everything and especially in home games. I am sure that we will continue to grow as a team.Are you worried that after seven games without winning, this situation affects the head of the players in some moments of the matches?Of course. We want to free the player and be calm and confident. We are creating occasions and competing. Every game is a world and I am very happy with the last matches except the last 20 minutes in Extremadura.I guess eager to give the fans a victory.You are right. Our hobby deserves much more. The time has come to not ask for more and give them to us. Take one more step for the fans to push us. We really want the three points to stay in Santo Domingo.What does the Numancia tell you?Knows how to adapt to each game and each situation. It fits little since it has a great defensive solidity. It is dangerous in offensive transition. They are very close and well worked. They will make it difficult for us. The Alcorcón does not go through its best moment of the season. Saying this is obvious. The potters do not know what it is to win in the last seven games, six in the League and one in the Cup that led to the elimination of the category. This next Wednesday the Numancia will measure the aspirations of an Alcorcón that needs to re-savor the three points. More in Santo Domingo. And it is that the first part of the season has been something strange for the potters. Accustomed to making Santo Domingo a fort, on that occasion, the team has only added eight points. However, far from home he is unbeaten and is the 3rd best visitor to the Smartbank League. In 13th position, with 28 points and in a quiet area, Alcorcón will try to take another step to be able to dream in the last part of the season. Of all this, the signings, the lack of gunpowder and the next rival we talked with the potter coach Fran Fernández.last_img read more

24 Awesome Beauty Tricks to Brush Up Your Makeup Skills

first_imgPeople from all over the world spend hefty sums of money in their attempts to look beautiful as quickly as possible. But what most people often forget is that it’s usually the small things that count the most when it comes to looking put together. It’s sometimes enough to brush or blow-dry your hair in a different way to make it look better, healthier, and stronger, for example. And some people have found such solutions for almost every kind of self-care.We have collected tips and tricks that will help you be beautiful and confident without emptying your pockets, wallets, and bank accounts.1. Get hair with volume and thicker locks.Experts recommend adding 3 parts sea salt to 2 parts shampoo. Mix it up well and use the scrub to wash your hair. Adding sea salt to your shampoo will help exfoliate your hair and make it look vibrant and healthy.2. Blow-dry your hair upside down.Haven’t perfected your blow-dry technique for that extra voluminous look and bounce? Don’t worry. The perfect way to blow-dry your hair is to do so with your hair upside-down. This not only gives your hair that perfect voluminous look and bounce that you’ve always craved, but it also minimizes the damage done to the upper side of your hair from the heat of the dryer.3. Get the perfect blowout look.Nobody wants a bad hair day on any given day, especially when you want to look your very best. But if you are running out of time or forgot to wash your hair, here is a hack to give your hair the perfect blowout look, albeit a fake one: Dust a bit of powder (preferably baby powder) on the roots of your hair and comb through it. Curl the ends of your hair and you’ll have just achieved the perfect blowout look.4. DIY hair diffuserIf you do not have a diffuser attachment for your hair dryer, use a strainer as a diffuser to get wonderful curly hair.5. Use a plastic bag for deep conditioning treatment.Wash your hair and dry it using a clean towel. Apply conditioner generously, twist your hair up and clip it on the top of your head. Cover your hair with a plastic bag and keep it on for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, rinse your hair and remember not to blow dry.6. Make dried out eyeliner work again.Despite being easy to apply and providing clean and smudge-proof color, felt-tip liners have a drawback: they tend to dry up pretty quickly. Luckily, there is an easy fix: open up the end of the liner (most either unscrew on their own or can be pulled out with tweezers) and then pull out the little felt rod inside using something other than your fingers, as it could get messy. Then, insert the felt tip the other way, with the side previously inside to now be on the outside.7. Quick cure for under-eye bags:Let’s face the truth — under-eye bags happen and sometimes there is nothing we can do to prevent them. And when we do get them, they seem to attract a lot of unwanted attention. While there is no way to get rid of them, applying eye cream stored in the refrigerator can help you minimize its appearance. So free up some space in your refrigerator and store your eye cream there.8. The best natural face scrub:Coconut oil is the elixir of skin, so add to it some coffee grounds in a 1:1 ratio and you have the perfect homemade natural face scrub. Apply it to your face and leave it for at least 15 minutes up to an hour. Rinse with warm water and enjoy glowing skin. This may also be used as a body scrub.9. Get the perfect color tone from any foundation.If you accidentally purchased a foundation that is too dark for your skin, add some moisturizer to it as this will help lighten it.10. DIY way to get rid of blackheadsMix a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and 3 tablespoons of honey to make a thick paste. Use your fingers to gently dab it onto your dry skin. Rub it in a circular motion for five minutes (or you may leave it applied overnight) and then wash off with warm water. Honey is a natural antibiotic and it pulls out dirt from your open pores while cinnamon has antimicrobial properties that remove dirt in pores and gently removes excess sebum from the skin’s surface to prevent blackheads.11. The (icy) path to a glamorous faceRubbing an ice cube over your face before applying makeup helps close the pores and reduces redness for glowing skin. It also helps your makeup last longer. Rubbing ice cubes can also go a long way in warding off wrinkles and premature aging.12. The fan brush hack: you don’t have a fan brush: Use a normal brush and put a bobby pin. While this is a great technique, make sure that you don’t permanently leave the bobby pins on the brush you’d also love to use in its original state.13. Brush cleaning board, the magical glue gun way!Brush cleaning boards are quite expensive, yet surprisingly easy to make. A small hack is to create your own board using a glue gun and a plastic board. You can use them to create scribbles to imitate brush cleaning boards similar to the expensive ones.14. Use baby shampoo to clean makeup brushes.Instead of buying the crazy brush cleansers that are super expensive, just use baby shampoo and the brush cleaning board described above.15. Use toothpaste for treating pimples.Wash your face with warm water to remove excess oil and dirt, then pat dry. Squeeze a little toothpaste onto your finger and apply directly over the pimples. Be careful not to apply outside the pimple region. Let it stay for 2 hours and then clean using a soft moist cloth carefully so as not to damage the skin. Then wash your face with warm water and pat dry.16. Brush your lips after brushing your teeth.Gently rub your lips with a dry toothbrush. It will help scrub off the dead skin and will make your lips smoother. It will also boost blood flow to your lips thereby making them softer and more sensual.17. Make lipstick last longerPut on a layer of lipstick, then lay a tissue across your lips. Dust some translucent powder over the tissue to make the color stay on longer.18. Broken lipstick fix:Mending broken lipstick is easy if you know how to do it. To mend the broken lipstick, expose the broken end that is still set in the base. Carefully melt the broken edges of the lipstick with a match or a lighter and then press the broken ends together gently. Put the lipstick in the fridge for about 45 minutes.19. Get stronger and healthier nailsIf you suffer from brittle and weak nails, there is a great homemade remedy for you. Massaging coconut oil into your cuticles and nails on a frequent basis will add moisture and will strengthen your nails which will result in strong nails that won’t chip. Being a natural anti-fungal agent, coconut oil will also get rid of any nail fungus you might have.20. Remove nail polish stainsMake a paste of one tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide and 2 tablespoons of baking soda in warm water. Dip your nails in this paste for 5 minutes. The chemicals will remove any stains left from nail polish and you will be ready to apply new polish.21. Use cooking spray to dry nail polish faster.Using a quick-drying nail spray is not an uncommon practice in ensuring that the nail polish dries faster. However, there’s another spray you can easily find in your kitchen that can provide similar results: cooking spray. Once you finish painting your nails, spray them with cooking spray. Leave for a few minutes and then wash it off.22. Get perfectly soft heelsPamper yourself with a healing foot treatment while you are asleep. Apply any peppermint moisturizer or vaseline to your cracked feet, then put on some comfy, cushioned socks and head to bed. That’s it. Wake up with soft and smooth feet.23. Get pedicure-perfect feetTo get pedicure-perfect feet, use Alka-Seltzer tablets. Yes, you read that right. A solution for perfect feet. Now that’s what you call a hack! Alka-Seltzer tablets contain citric acid and baking soda. Drop the tablets in warm water and soak your feet in it. The chemicals will react with water and will help smoothen your skin.24. The correct way to apply perfume:While the perfume indrusty wants us to spray their perfume all over our bodies, it’s actually not at all necessary. The photograph shows the only points where you need to apply perfume to get the best results.Sourcelast_img read more
