Eyebrows Much?!

Here is the latest attempt at fixing my eyebrows. Yes, I am a man, who is desperate to get fuller, thicker, more masculine-looking eye brows.
Although I previously purchased ABS Brow Wiz, I had to return it because I found the NYX Retractable eye liner (and a spooly brush) to work just fine. Coupled with Benefit's Gimme Brow in light brown, I attempted to use makeup to achieve a brow that met my goal.
Next, as many of you know, I tried out my Cardini eyebrow prosthetic (made of human hair, attached to a thin sheet of clear material) that cost me $50. It needed to be trimmed a bit just to get it on my face right.
Take a look at the results of FIRST TIME TRIAL AND ERROR:
The top pic is what my brows look like when I wake up. Too thin, yet battered and messy at the same time. Life sucks.
In the middle picture, though I didn't clean up my brows, I wanted to see what I could achieve with makeup. I felt that clipping and tweezing (to clean them up) would negatively impact my pursuit.
The pic on the bottom clearly shows that I am wearing a prosthetic. The hairs are thicker than mine, even though they are made of read human hair. Also, the material, where it meets the skin, looks like my skin is flaking. It's weird.
While I like the thickness of the prosthetic, it's CLEARLY TOO THICK! And too obvious that it's an attachment.
Verdict (so far...)
I am going to continue playing with the prosthetic. Trimming it more. Shaping it. Using a better adhesive. Then I will make a decision on how I feel.
As far as the makeup, I think that my NYX brown is TOO BROWN! I need to go lighter and will pick up a gray/brown or a tawny or something like that. I still want to play around with it as this was my first and only attempt.
What do you all think? YES, HONESTY IS TOTALLY COOL. I'm not going to freak out.
Thank you!

I love the middle brow, but I'm honestly feeling the prosthetic. I do think you should trim the top a bit, but I feel like it would be the best fit if it was a bit thinner on the top.
Im determined to fine tune it and give an update. soon. lol you're right, gotta be bold and own it @hikaymm
@marshalledgar I've just accepted that if I want to get better at makeup I gotta put my face out there lol XD!! Glad you shared. It really does look great, just gotta keep fine tuning the look~
I have to say that I was hesitant to share this card because it's a vulnerable feeling. once it's out, it's out. but your comments are amazing!!! definitely thrilled kinda that I shared this. I sooooo appreciate the other Vinglers who openly share their makeup and hair and nail cards. you're right @hikaymm about a lighter color and putting less product on the inner. needs to still look natural
Alright, two suggestions!! I would say go with either 2 or 3. The prostethic is definitely too much there (which you know!) but I think it could be worked with. You actually might need to blend along the edges of it to give it a more natural look with some makeup still. As for 2, I think you might be able to achieve a look you like with makeup, but definitely go with a lighter color!! And maybe try putting less product in the inner part of your brow to give it more natural dimensions

What's The Point Of Wearing a Wig Cap And Not Wearing a Wig Cap?
It all depends on your choice. If you feel confident and safe enough, you can always wear a wig without a cap. If you have lost all or only a few hairs, you should wear a wig cap. The wig cap provides extra comfort between the 5x5 closure wig and the head for women with sensitive skin and scalp. Wigs can irritate delicate skin because they are rough. Wig caps can make long curly wigs more comfortable for those who have lost all their hair. benefit: Even if you have a lot of natural hair, wigs can make your scalp feel itchy and embarrassing. The ombre blonde lace front wig cap provides a layer of protection between the wig and the skin. If you have stray hairs under your wig, a wig cap may help. They securely lock all the hair under the wig and prevent any stray hair from escaping. Shortcoming: If you live in a hot climate and can't stand the heat, you should avoid wearing wig caps. When sweat and oil build up on your head, it can lead to a rash and possibly hair loss in the future. Consider the following tips when making a decision: 1. The head area. This varies from person to person, and if you have a bigger head, you may find wig caps rather unpleasant. If you wear a wig cap for a long time, you may get a headache. If you have a smaller head, the wig cap may slip under the wig and cause the wig to fall out. 2. Cotton and nylon wig caps are the most common, although they are not suitable for people with sensitive scalps. And nylon hats can be itchy and uncomfortable. 3. If you live in a hot climate, you may want to avoid wig caps. Adding another layer of cloth makes the heat intolerable. 4. If you must wear a wig cap, make sure it is clean and fit. Tips for Wearing a Wig Without a Hat If you don't want to wear a wig with a wig cap, you should keep the following tips in mind. 1. Choose the right size, wigs that are too tight around the head may cause hair loss and breakage. 2. Don't forget to wash the wig cap to remove debris and bacteria from the hair and scalp. 3. Be sure to wear a wig that allows the scalp to breathe. Wigs without caps are lighter and allow more airflow to the scalp, so capless wigs won't make you feel as hot as standard wig caps. 4. Don't ignore your hairline. To avoid damaging the edges, place the wig cap behind the ear, not forgetting the hairline. 5. If possible, avoid using adhesives to avoid hair loss or breakage near the hairline. 6. If you have a sensitive scalp, you should avoid wearing wigs made from synthetic hair. Excessive itching, burning, and scalp discomfort may be due to the sensitivity of the wig material. 7. Take time for regular haircuts and deep conditioning treatments between wigs.
The Best and Worst Ways to Get Rid of Blackheads
Some people don't even know they have acne because it doesn't look like a blemish at all. Acne comes in many different shapes, sizes, and colours. Take blackheads, those pesky dark-colored spots filled with gunk. If you've ever tried to squeeze one, you're likely to have found yourself facing down an angry bump instead, and you'll have quickly regretted it. So, what is the best way to get rid of this kind of acne on your skin? Before we look at the causes and who is most likely to get blackheads, let's look at who is most likely to get them. Blackheads are caused by a lot of different factors. People who get blackheads have too much sebum (oil), dead skin, and possibly C. acnes (the bacteria that causes acne) stuck in their hair follicles, which makes it hard for them to clean. When these things are exposed to the air, they turn black. Blackheads are called comedones in medicine. As acne starts to form, comedones start to form. When the follicle gets bigger and bigger, it can break open and spill its contents into the surrounding skin layer, which is called the dermis. This can cause an inflammatory response. This shows up on the skin as an inflammatory papule, which is more commonly known as a pimple. This is a lot more dangerous than a blackhead. Acne-prone people are more likely to get blackheads, but there is also a genetic predisposition. Hormones also play a role, causing sebum to be made (skin oil). Enlarged pores can also be found in people who have had a lot of sun damage. Ostia (small openings) can look bigger and more dilated if there is less collagen in the dermis around the hair follicle. People with the condition Favre-Racouchot have large blackheads on parts of their skin that have been sunburned. This is a very extreme example of this, though. Skin care: how to avoid getting blackheads Topical or oral retinoids can be used to keep blackheads at bay, such as prescription drugs like tretinoin or Retin-A. Adapalene, also known as Differin, is an over-the-counter retinoid that can be used to treat comedonal acne. Patients with more severe comedonal acne may need to take oral retinoids, like isotretinoin or Accutane, to get better. adds that chemical exfoliants can also be good, but doesn't like scrubs because they can irritate the skin. Getting rid of blackheads is the best way to do it. If you already have blackheads, there are a few dermatologist-approved ways to get rid of them. Some of them are also good ways to keep them from coming back. Make sure you use products that have Salicylic Acid in them. Salicylic acid, which is a beta hydroxy acid, is one of the best things you can use to get rid of blackheads. It increases cell turnover and unclogs pores. adds that the acne treatment can help dry out active acne lesions because it is a mild chemical irritant, which can help dry them out. A lot of research shows that salicylic acid can help with acne. Small double-blind and controlled studies show that people who used a 2 percent salicylic acid wash for two weeks had less acne lesions in 30 of the people who took part in the study. Add a Retinoid to Your Routine. Retinoids, which can be bought with a prescription (like Retin-A) or over the counter (Differin), are a good way to get rid of blackheads on the skin. Retinoids help keep the follicular ostia (where hair grows) from becoming blocked. They do this by promoting skin turnover and reducing the "stickiness" of the skin cells. When you start using retinoid cream, comedones may get worse because cell turnover increases against a clogged opening, causing the pores to widen even more. If you keep getting help for your skin condition, the blocked ostia will start to get better, and with more skin turnover, they are less likely to get blocked again in the future. You can also use retinoid to fight ageing and regenerate your skin. Take a look at Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Alpha hydroxy acids, like glycolic acid and lactic acid, can also be good for your skin. Salicylic acid is better at unclogging pores, though. Choose an in-office treatment with your Dermatologist. People who see a dermatologist can help them get rid of their dark spots on their skin. You can get in-office treatments that can help make your pores look less noticeable. Those are called laser treatments, and they don't hurt. They include nonablative resurfacing like Fraxel laser, Clear + Brilliant laser, and microneedling. While some people are happy with the results of a single treatment, others may need more than one to get the results they want. Worst Ways to Get Blackheads Out of Your Skin Harsh Scrubs. Some people want to use an exfoliating scrub right away to get rid of all their dead skin. People who use chemical exfoliators like AHAs should avoid over-exfoliating with a granule scrub like they might have been told to do as a teen, when they manually scrubbed the grains into their skin until it was red. Harsh scrubs can strip your natural oils and make your skin more oily, says a doctor at the hospital. Manual Extractions. Fight the urge to pop any pimples that you see. If you squeeze your blackheads, you can cause the follicle to break open and cause an inflammatory lesion, or cyst, to form. As a result, you can turn your blackhead into something that's much more serious on your skin Keep in mind that the closer a blackhead is to the surface of your skin, the less risky it is to get rid of it. Suction tools. Tech that says it can remove sebum from pores may sound good, but these products may do more harm than good, so be careful. This suction can be bad for the skin on your face. It can cause broken blood vessels, or telangiectasias, to appear, especially around your nose. Final Thoughts While it might be almost impossible not to try to remove that blackhead with your own two fingers, try your best not to do it. Prevention is the best medicine. The best way to get rid of blackheads is to use a few effective ingredients, such as retinoids, which are both good for your skin and good for keeping new blackheads away. Take your skin to a dermatologist for help.
Do You Really Have Acne And How To Deal With It?
You probably started getting acne in middle school and thought you'd grow out of it. It didn't work out that way for you. Now that you're in your mid-20s, you're wondering why the zits won't go away. If acne is still making you feel bad, keep reading to learn what causes it, what the symptoms are, and how to get rid of it for good. What Is Acne Vulgaris? People who have acne vulgaris (AV) have noninflammatory lesions (blackheads and whiteheads), inflammatory lesions (papules, pustules, and nodules), and different amounts of scarring. It's called acne vulgaris, and it's the scientific name for what we call "acne." Acne vulgaris is a common condition that affects about 85% of people at some point in their lives. It mostly happens during the teenage years. Even though, as you probably already know, AV can still show up even when you're an adult. In fact, 50.9 percent of women between the ages of 20 and 29 have AV, and the rate drops off a little in women between the ages of 40 and 49. (26.3 percent). Women are more likely to get adult acne than men are to get it. In fact, some research shows that women make up 66% of dermatology practitioner visits. Women over the age of 25 also make up one third of all visits to dermatologists for acne, too. What Causes Acne Vulgaris? People get acne because of four main things: * Keratin and dead skin cells that build up in the follicle. This causes comedones to form. * Hormones make sebum production go up and down (androgen) * A buildup of the P. acnes bacteria in the follicle * Inflammation. * Genetics, a high-glycemic-index diet (like chocolate and dairy), and other lifestyle factors, like smoking, can also lead to acne, but these things don't always cause it. How To Recognise Acne Vulgaris? Women can get acne at any age and in different degrees of severity. Female patients may be more likely to get acne on the lower third of their face, especially on their chin and jawline. Acne lesions range from comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) to papules, pustules, cysts, and nodules, which are all different kinds of things on the skin. Women who have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may have acne vulgaris as a sign of the condition. Other symptoms, such as hirsutism (excessive hair growth) or menstrual irregularities, may also happen at the same time as AV. How To Manage Acneic Skin Type? The good news is that there are many ways to treat acne vulgaris, from mild acne to severe acne. Topical creams/ gels: Benzoyl peroxide Retinoids Azelaic acid Topical treatments are one of the mainstays for people with mild to moderate acne. These lotions and creams can be bought over the counter and with a prescription. Benzoyl peroxide is often used to treat acne. It comes in a range of strengths (2.5 percent to 10 percent) and formulations (cream, gel, wash, foam, gel, leave-on and wash-off). There are dead skin cells that benzyl peroxide breaks down. Then, keratin plugs up the hair follicle with keratin. Benzoyl peroxide is also an anti-inflammatory agent that can fight bacteria. As you get more blackheads and whiteheads, you might use a topical retinoid. Retinoids are comedolytic, which means they break down the plug in the follicle and remove the hair. Retinoids are also anti-inflammatory, and they work well with other topical treatments for all types of acne. Azelaic acid is another topical treatment that works as a comedolytic, an antimicrobial, and a pain reliever. You can find it in whole grains, like wheat, rye and barley. This acid is found naturally. In people with sensitive skin, azelaic acid should be used with care. This is because it can make their skin red, burn, and itch. For severe acne vulgaris, treatment options are as follows: Prescription retinoids Oral antibiotics Isotretinoin If you have acne, you should not just take an antibiotic pill to treat it. This is because antibiotic resistance has been increasing. So, it is best to use antibiotics only a few times a week and in combination with other treatment methods. There is an FDA-approved drug for people who have severe AV. It can also be used to treat people who have moderate acne that is either treatment-resistant or comes back quickly after stopping oral antibiotics. Isotretinoin, which is used to treat acne, has been shown to cut down on sebum production, the number of acne lesions, and the scarring caused by acne. There are also other treatment options, like taking an oral medication called spironolactone, which is usually taken with an oral contraceptive pill to get the best results. Takeaways If adult acne is ruining your life, don't worry. There are a lot of ways to keep the pimples at bay, and they all work. A treatment option is available for you and your skin, from benzoyl peroxide to retinoids and isotretinoin, so you can find one that works best for you and your skin.
Stop Washing Your Face in The Shower - Here's Why.
Women with sensitive skin, acne prone skin, or dry skin have probably heard a common refrain from their expert friends and family about how their shower time could be exacerbating their problems. It's such a common refrain in the skincare world that some people question whether you should even shower daily — for reasons other than the potential harm to your face. What kind of shower is best for your facial skin? Long or short? Is it better to bathe with cold or warm water? The truth is that the verdict on showers and their benefits for the skin on your face isn't all that clear, and rather than accepting one opinion as "gospel," you should consider your own skin needs and how showering may help or stop you from getting your face what it needs in order to glow. What Happens to Your Skin in a Shower? The question of what showering does to your skin is perhaps the most important information in this discussion — and there are already some disagreements. However, the general consensus is that showering daily can have a few negative effects on your skin and the skin on your face. In the worst-case scenario, daily showering can exacerbate skin problems such as dry skin, itching, cracking, and bacterial overgrowth. Showering can help reduce skin bacteria, which is sometimes beneficial — but not always. While it may come as a surprise, bacteria are not all bad. In fact, bacteria and the health of your skin have a close relationship. Bacteria are necessary for the health of your skin. For example, in order for your immune system to function properly, it must be exposed to microorganisms on a regular basis. Keeping your skin clean and free of dirt and bacteria does not make you healthier; instead, it prevents your immune system from properly training its antibodies for future encounters. As a result, the antibacterial soaps that many people use in showers and hand scrubbing situations may kill off the important 'should be here' bacteria. When this happens, you're merely making room for more dangerous bacteria to colonise. And this is a major concern for people who take hot showers frequently, because excessive showering can cause your skin to dry and crack over time, allowing these more dangerous bacteria to enter your body beneath the skin barrier. This can lead to major issues, infections, and problems in the future. Is it bad to wash your face while you shower? Despite all of our warnings, there are still plenty of reasons to take our advice with a grain of salt. While a celebrity dermatologist may recommend you not to wash your face during your shower routine, the reality is that there is very little evidence to suggest any danger to your face in particular. We couldn't find any studies that suggested that washing your face in the shower could cause an increase in acne, wrinkles, dryness, or skin conditions like rosacea or eczema. The wrong products, many of which may be in your shower, are what will cause your skin problems. For example, the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD) recommends avoiding alcohol and abrasive cleaners, as well as sponges, washcloths and mesh cleaning tools that can irritate your skin. That means that many of the tools you use to wash your body (and may have in your shower) aren't good for your facial skin. And, after a thorough body scrub, remember not to scrub too hard on your face. Cleansers should be applied with your fingertips, and the cleanser should be removed with the same care. And, as the AAD points out, there's the issue of water temperature, which they recommend for face washing be "lukewarm." This is likely unhappy news if you enjoy hot or cold showers. Is water temperature important? You're probably wondering, "Why the big deal about hot water?" What about saunas, steam rooms and hot towels? "What exactly is it about my shower water that is so bad for my face?" As it turns out, there's a lot that can go wrong with it. Excessively hot water has been linked to an increased risk of irritation and inflammation of the skin on your face, according to research. As far as we're concerned, this does not imply that taking a shower is bad for your face. It does, however, imply that your face-specific routine may be best staged outside of the shower, where you can control temperature, reduce the risk of injury due to water temperature fluctuations, and generally do better work for your skin health. You may be wondering about the benefits of steam and whether they mitigate the risk of irritation. Steam and hot water have numerous benefits for your skin — and the things that live in your skin. Steam can loosen and soften buildup, making blackheads and other solid blemishes easier to remove from your pores. Steaming your skin can also provide additional benefits for serums and moisturisers later on. Topical products can often be better accepted by your skin by opening up your pores and making your skin more permeable. And, contrary to popular belief, steam is beneficial to your skin's relative moisture levels. It can not only help you add water to your individual skin cells, but it can also help make subsequent products like moisturisers and serums more effective. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, steam increases blood flow in your skin's blood vessels, which can lead to increased collagen production and, eventually, plump and firm skin. All of this being said, it is recommended that you use a hot towel or bowl rather than a shower, as this gives you more control over the time and level of contact water has with your face, as well as the ability to adjust the temperature. These things are important for people who have rosacea and redness, as well as those who have broken capillaries. Women with sensitive skin should exercise caution as well, as steaming can aggravate inflammatory conditions (which means people with eczema should also be wary). When You Should Wash Your Face Instead So, the shower is off, and we both agree on that. So, where do you wash your face? When, where, and why? You should wash your face twice a day, plus more if you get sweaty, as you might after exercise or time in the sun. In most cases, washing once in the morning and once at night is sufficient. According to what we can tell, you're fine to do one of those washes right after a shower — lukewarm water and a non-abrasive, non-alcoholic cleanser are the gentle combination you'll need. Just remember to be a little gentler than you would be with your back, legs, or feet. By the way, now is the ideal time to apply a moisturiser. Hot showers (especially long ones) can dry out your skin, and for people with psoriasis and other skin issues, they can aggravate existing problems. The best time to replenish lost moisture and protect yourself for the day ahead is after your post-shower face wash.
Best Ways to Take Care of Your Skin
When you’re looking for the best way to take care of your skin, you want to ensure that you’re treating your skin and that your skin is healthy and strong. You might be tempted to go to the store and buy a moisturizer with everything your skin needs. But, there are many things that you can do to ensure that your skin stays healthy and strong. Below are several simple ways to take care of your skin. How to Manage Your Skin Issues? There are certain types of skin problems that may arise due to a bad diet and nutrition. This is because our skin is sensitive to what we eat. A skin problem is likely to occur if we take in a diet that is not healthy for us, and it could cause our skin to become inflamed, red, swollen, dry, and itchy. We ought to consume more fruits and vegetables as a result. If you are constantly breaking out, it may be time to consider your skincare routine. You might need a break to cleanse and hydrate your skin from years of overuse, but when you return, your skin may have developed an unhealthy dependence on chemicals. How to Stay Healthy and Fresh? If you want to be fit and healthy, there are lots of tips you can follow. However, when it comes to exercise, it’s crucial that you make sure you’re getting enough calories. Exercising too little can lead to muscle loss while exercising too much can lead to fatigue and injury. It’s also essential that you rest and recover between workouts. When it comes to nutrition, it’s important to eat enough, but not too much. A balanced diet should provide you with all the vitamins and minerals you require. Make sure you drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and sugary drinks. You may not realize it, but the food you eat can affect your skin. Certain foods, such as those high in sugar or salt, can clog the pores and cause breakouts. While it’s tempting to blame your diet for acne, there are other factors to consider, including stress, hormonal changes, and even genetics. How to Pick the Best Product? A good way to pick the best skincare products for your skin type is to start by making a decision as to what type of skincare regime you currently have. Some people like to just wash their face every day, others may like to use a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer twice daily, and uses a product made up of natural oils as a two-step routine. This should help you determine the products that you need to consider for your skin type. With today’s products, especially those for skincare, there’s always a huge debate on whether or not a product is actually working for anyone. A lot of times, it seems like everyone wants the same thing out of a skincare product; you see ads that talk about glowing skin, but what they don’t tell you is that this is because they are marketing toward women and not men. Women spend a lot more time looking after their skin than men do, so if a product doesn’t address this need specifically, it could be a bad choice for the men who might just end up buying it for a woman anyway. In conclusion, Skin conditions are very common and often have an impact on your life. Even though we all have skin issues at times, not everyone has the knowledge and the proper tools to deal with these problems. If you are experiencing any kind of skin issue, whether it is acne, scars, stretch marks, dry skin, oily skin, or acne rosacea, you need to seek medical advice as soon as possible. This is important because, once you ignore the problem, it will only worsen and become harder to treat.
How To Treat Acne Scars
If you look in the mirror and see acne scars, then you probably walk away frustrated because there's virtually no solution outside of expensive (and painful) laser and filler treatments. But did you know about aloe vera gel? You know, the all natural stuff that you can get at any health food store (and most drug stores) for less than $20! According to Readers Digest, "a 2014 study of 60 participants suffering from mild to severe acne looked at whether adding aloe vera gel to a standard topical retinoid treatment would increase healing." Remarkably, those that combined the cream and the aloe vera gel saw reduced inflammation and significantly reduced scarring. The combination of retinoids, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid contribute to the dramatic efficacy. TIP: Apply both aloe vera gel and your preferred retinol treatment twice a day to see results in about 4 weeks. @jordanhamilton @kaminisingh @alywoah @TessStevens @mikayla @ChelseaHeyes @QueenYuki @KyotieWolf @kristenadams @Donnas @stargaze @flymetothemoon @ImUrBestFriend @galinda @Bekka @RaquelArredondo @jazziejazz @rmayra1 @prgurl4u2envy @DemiP @alannasofia @petname83 @TinaDang @dimplequeen @tiffany1922 @atmi @ZoilaObregon @brinJSN @CelinaGonzalez @JessicaChaney @Animaniafreak @CrystalBlunt @AliciaJaneth @NaraA @TurtleyTurtles @sherrysahar @raenel @CandaceJordan @LemonLassie @AprilNapier @peahyr @MyAffairWith @SarahRegulski @HappyLulie @GingerMJones @humairaa @yellowbug18 @reaper412 @hikaymm
The Anti-Aging Diet: Foods That Maintain Youthful Skin
Is it possible to look younger by changing what you eat? Yes. As for what you eat, it can take years off your looks. The right foods are full of things that fight ageing and wrinkles. Getting to know antioxidants: The anti-wrinkle heroes How can what you eat have such a big impact on your body? There are a lot of things that help. Antioxidants are important. They are nutrients that can protect your body from the ageing effects of free radicals, a process called oxidation, which is bad for your body. There are many natural things that happen in your body and in the world that make free radicals. These things include exposure to the sun and cigarette smoke, as well as chemicals and even exercise. There are two types of free radicals: molecules or atoms that have lost one of their electrons and are now unpaired, which makes them dangerous. When an atom or molecule isn't stable, it looks for other atoms or molecules (yours) to stabilise it. This causes a chain reaction of unstable atoms and molecules in your body. When this happens, your cells' DNA changes. This is a big deal because it affects your skin and your entire body. There are a lot of things that make us age, like oxidative stress and inflammation. Eat a lot of fiber-rich foods like fruits and vegetables. The more you eat each day, the more young you will look. Fruits and vegetables are usually low in calories and can help your body get rid of toxins and start over. Colorful berries. Antioxidant anthocyanin is what makes berries blue, red, and purple in colour, and it is what makes them healthy. If you want to get a healthy dose of this powerful antioxidant, you should eat a lot of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, pomegranates, cherries and blood oranges, to name a few of the best foods. There are many powerful antioxidants in these foods. They repair and protect your skin cells. Broccoli and broccoli sprouts. Other foods that have a lot of powerful antioxidants are cranberries, onions, and apples. They contain Quercetin. It's also a natural anti-inflammatory agent, which helps fight the No. 2 cause of ageing, which is inflammation. You can get 30 times more antioxidants from broccoli sprouts than you can from regular broccoli. Spinach. Lutein is found in spinach, kale, corn, and a lot of other foods. It can give your skin more antioxidant power and make your skin more hydrated. Garlic. Garlic contains allium; an antioxidant that packs a punch. It is a free-radical fighter that can help your skin and your immune system. Garlic, onions, and scallions all have it. Beans. Eat your beans as well. There are a lot of black beans and black soybeans that have a lot of anthocyanin, which makes them look black. Soybeans are also a good source of isoflavones, which have been linked to anti-aging properties, and they are also high in fibre. Tea. Catechins, which are found in green tea, dark chocolate, and red wine, are another antioxidant that does a lot of good. They can help you stay healthy. Have four to six cups of tea with lemon every day. This helps the antioxidants in your cells work better. Wine. Resveratrol, which is found in red wine, has a lot of anti-aging properties. Catechins are also found in red wine. It's another powerful antioxidant. Yellow and orange root vegetables. Make sure your food has a lot of beta-carotene, which is good for your health. These antioxidants are very good for your skin and eyes. Carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, and squash are all good choices. Tomatoes. Lycopene, which is found in red grapefruit, tomatoes, watermelon, and pink grapefruit, is a powerful weapon against free radicals. It can also be found in other fruits and vegetables. It can slow down sun-induced ageing and get rid of free radicals. Fill your glass with tomato juice every day. Nuts. Eat some nuts and seeds every day. They have a lot of good fat that helps your skin look fuller, antioxidants, and a lot of minerals that are good for your skin, too. Salmon. At least three times a week, eat salmon. It has a lot of good things for your skin, from the omega-3s to the high-quality protein that it has. For six weeks, you should make it a part of your diet. You'll start to see more plump, younger skin. Water. Do this: drink six to eight glasses of water a day. As long as you are writing with decaffeinated tea, that counts, too! Caffeinated drinks can make you less hydrated, which can make your skin look drier. Final word As much as possible, eat fruits and vegetables that are already cooked or raw. To keep all of the antioxidants, steaming is the best way to do it. Also, cut back on sweets. Avoid processed, refined foods and sugars, which can make your body more active with free radicals. As often as possible, choose from all of these great foods that fight ageing and wrinkles. You'll be on your way to a healthy, younger-looking you.
8 Habits That Cause Premature Wrinkles And Skin Aging
People of all ages have beautiful skin. But as time goes on, the glow of your skin can fade. Cut back on these habits that can make your skin look older before it's ready. 1. You can get dark circles and fine lines if you keep rubbing your eyes all the time. People get under-eye bags when the muscles around their eyes weaken as they get older. If you keep rubbing your eyes, it will be fine. It won't have any long-term effects. Continuous eye rubbing can cause an issue by increasing inflammation in the area. Keeping your eyes rubbed all the time can make the lines around your eyes look worse. I often see this as a problem for people with eczema, who may rub their eyes too much because they are itchy and hurt. Some people call them Dennie-Morgan lines because they look like a black eye when they get them. That's not all. It can darken the skin around the eyes if you pull, tug, and rub on the skin there. Determine what is making you rub your eyes. You should see an allergist to figure out what's causing your eyes to itch and to treat your symptoms. A dermatologist can help you figure out what kind of treatment is best for your eczema. 2. Not getting enough sleep hurts your skin's ability to grow new, healthy skin. A good night's sleep is important for energy, concentration, and having a good complexion. At night, the skin is in a state of renewal, and it starts to grow new skin. When you don't get enough sleep, it can show on your face. A study of 60 women published in Clinical and Experimental Dermatology in January 2015 found that women who didn't get enough sleep, which was defined as five hours or less, had more signs of ageing, a weaker skin barrier, and less satisfaction with their looks. You can get enough sleep if you follow the National Sleep Foundation's four tips: Every day, go to bed and wake up at the same time. This will help your body get used to the same times. Set up your bedroom in a dark, cool, and quiet way. Finish your meal at least two to three hours before going to sleep. If you drink a lot of caffeine in the afternoon, you should cut back a lot. 3. It can be hard to get a clean line when you use a straw. Were you born with a straw? It may keep your teeth from getting stained, but it can also make your mouth look older. This is a sign that your skin is getting older. There are muscles in the area around your lips when you drink from a straw. There is a better chance of getting that crease in the skin if we work those muscles more. It's the same reason that people who smoke get wrinkles around the mouth, like they do. To find the lines, you can keep your lips pursed over and over again. The best way to avoid straws is to not use them at all. 4. When you are stressed, cortisol is released, which causes collagen to break down. Whenever we are stressed, we feel it in every part of our bodies. Your skin is part of this. If you're always worried or can't sleep, your body is always making stress hormones, which can make you look older than you should. Inflammation and sagging skin are both caused by the stress hormone cortisol, which also breaks down collagen. Stress, because of the increased inflammation, has been shown to speed up the ageing process in studies. Stress can be reduced primarily by making changes to your lifestyle, like eating well, getting enough sleep, and practising meditation. All of these things have a big impact on the way your body and face look as you get older. Find out what truly relaxes you and do it often. 5. Using makeup to protect your skin from the sun exposes your skin to UV rays. SPF is the best way to keep your skin from getting older before it should. Ultraviolet (UV) light exposure caused about 80% of the visible signs of ageing on the face, like wrinkles and changes in pigmentation. You may not be protecting your skin from harmful UV rays if you only use makeup that has SPF in it. It blocks UVB rays but not UVA rays, which cause fine lines and brown spots. Most makeup blocks UVB but not UVA. As a bonus, to get the sunscreen benefit, you'd have to put on a lot of make-up. Makeup will add extra protection to sunscreen, but it's likely not enough on its own. Before you put on your makeup, put on a broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen or moisturiser. Broad-spectrum means that the product will protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, which can make your skin age. As well as their makeup, people need SPF to keep them safe. SPF 30 is a good level of protection for most people. 6. Sun damage can happen to your neck and hands if you don't pay attention. Ultraviolet light is the single most important thing you can do to keep from getting older. Even if you use sunscreen every day, you might forget about your neck and hands. This might be why they're the first places to show your age. Previous research found that women with visible veins and wrinkles on the hands were perceived to be older than their peers with plumper hands, even if they were the same age. In time, we lose some of our ability to move freely. The hands lose volume and fat, which makes the skin clear and wrinkled. Your skin kind of thins out, so your hands don't look as big. In this picture, you can see the veins a little better. They look wrinkly. As a result of long-term sun exposure, the skin on the neck can turn dark and look older. In the same way, you can try to avoid harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. If you must go outside, it's the easiest thing to do is find shade and wear a hat with a brim and sunscreen. She says that some of her patients wear gloves that protect their hands from the sun when they drive. 7. If You Don't Wear Sunglasses, You Risk Damage to Your Eyes and the Skin Around them. As we've said, UV rays can damage the eyelid, cornea, lens, and retina. Sunglasses protect the eyes from these rays, which can also damage the skin around the eyes. These movements like squinting, laughing, and frowning can make your face look older over time. The more you use your muscles to make these movements, the more wrinkles and lines will show up when your face is at rest. Even in the dead of winter, you should wear sunglasses. The more protection you have, the better off you will be. Look for a pair that says 100% protection against both UVA and UVB or 100% protection against UV 400 on the package. 8. Soap can make wrinkles worse. Despite what your grandparents say, soap bars are often full of harsh detergents that strip the skin of its natural oils, making it dry and flaky. Even though dry skin doesn't cause wrinkles on its own, it does make them easier to see. There are things that can cause allergies and rashes on your skin when you have dry skin. These things are things like bacteria and viruses. Because your skin's barrier is weaker when it is dry, this is the reason why. A lot of people have trouble with their skin, so they have to be careful with the soap they use. If you have sensitive skin, eczema, or rosacea, then yes, the soap you use will have an effect on how your skin looks and feels. You should use a cleanser that is hydrating to clean your face. You should look for the words gentle and moisturising on the package. Avoid using deodorant soap or products that could dry out your skin, like alcohol, fragrance, retinoids, or alpha hydroxy acid. After you wash your face, apply a moisturiser with antioxidants like vitamin C.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorised some types of manufactured bioidentical hormones, which includes bioidentical estriol (a susceptible structure of estrogen) and progesterone.
