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.

Probiotics For Skin - How Effective Are They?
You've probably heard a lot about the importance of gut health and how oral probiotics can help keep it in tip-top shape in recent years. There are numerous probiotic products on the market today, ranging from pills to yoghurt drinks and beyond. But, exactly, what are probiotic supplements? They contain beneficial bacteria that can help you maintain a healthy microbiome in your gut. This can help with digestion and even prevent illness. Probiotics that may be beneficial to the skin If you want to try this type of skin care to help your skin's healthy bacteria and microbiome, you should know which probiotic extracts can help. Here are a few of the big guns: * S. Thermophiles may increase skin ceramides, which aid in skin cellular function. It could also help with atopic dermatitis. * In some studies, V. Filiformis was shown to improve atopic dermatitis, redness, scaling, and itchiness after two weeks. * The presence of S. Thermophilus resulted in an increase in ceramides and hydration. Lactobacillus may be beneficial in the treatment of inflammation. * B. Coagulans may help with acne, but more research is needed. Skin Care Alternatives Backed by Science Not sure if you want to invest in probiotic skin care? Or maybe you just want to wait until there's more research to back up the claims? We understand. Fortunately, there are a wide range of well-researched products available. There's something for everyone, no matter what your skin needs (hydration, clearing up, or overall health). Here are some scientifically proven remedies: Cleanser According to studies, using a high-quality cleanser can help keep skin healthy and reduce acne. Choose a non-abrasive, alcohol-free wash. Something labelled "non-comedogenic" is also helpful because it will not clog pores. Moisturizer This product is essential in any skin care regimen. It hydrates, smoothes, and can help your skin barrier, which protects your complexion from environmental factors. Do you have oily skin? You must still use one. If you don't, your oil production may increase. When your skin becomes dry, your body signals it to produce more oil. Pick a moisturiser designed specifically for acne-prone skin. Sunscreen This is one product that should not be skimped on. Not only does your face require protection from skin cancer, but using sunscreen can also help prevent ageing. According to research, UV exposure can reduce the elastic properties of the skin, resulting in sagging or wrinkles. Look for a broad-spectrum formula with at least SPF 30. Tretinoin Do you want to fight acne? Consider using tretinoin in the form of a prescription topical cream. It works by stimulating your skin's natural exfoliation of dead skin cells (which can lead to breakouts). Pick an acne cream that contains tretinoin as well as clindamycin, an antibiotic that prevents blemish-causing bacteria from multiplying. Your skin also has a microbiome (a large number of bacteria that live on the skin's surface), and probiotic skin care has recently become popular. What Exactly Is Probiotic Skin Care? Thousands of different species of bacteria live on the surface of your skin. The microbiome of your skin is made up of these bacteria. But, before you vomit, consider this: having bacteria-infested skin is a good thing. That bacteria can help protect your face from environmental factors, prevent dry skin, and do a variety of other things. However, if your skin's microbiome becomes out of balance, it can cause acne, rosacea, premature ageing, eczema, and dryness. What can disrupt your skin's microbiome? It could be anything, from the medications you're taking to the weather to the face wash you're using. You can probably guess what the goal of probiotic skin care is now that you know an out-of-balance microbiome can cause skin issues: to keep the good bacteria balanced and working in your favour, while preventing bad bacteria from causing skin issues. There are topical creams that contain live bacteria cultures. There are also creams labelled as prebiotics. While probiotics help to maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria, prebiotics contain ingredients that are thought to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria. There are also oral pills that claim to help regulate your skin's microbiome. Is Probiotic Skin Care Effective? In summary? It's possible. Some research suggests that oral and topical probiotics may help to prevent and treat certain skin issues. According to one systematic review of both human and animal studies, using probiotic skin care products may help with acne, eczema, and dry skin. However, the researchers were emphatic that more research is required before that can be concluded definitively. A number of small studies have also found that probiotics may help with skin ageing, wound healing, and possibly even skin cancer. Another study found that certain probiotics may promote good bacteria, which can help restore the skin's normal pH balance and fight free radicals. Free radicals form naturally and can harm the skin's cellular structures. These free radicals can be exacerbated by environmental factors such as UV light and pollution. Skin Care with Probiotics While probiotics are traditionally thought to improve gut health, they may also benefit your skin. That's because, like your gut, your skin has its own microbiome, which means that tonnes of good bacteria live on the surface of your skin. Certain factors, such as medication or environmental factors, can have a negative impact on your skin's microbiome and even introduce harmful bacteria. When harmful bacteria outnumber healthy bacteria, skin conditions such as acne, eczema, sensitive skin, rosacea, dry skin, and others can develop. Probiotic skin care may help to address these issues and restore your skin's microbiome. There are a variety of products on the market right now, ranging from topical probiotics to oral probiotics designed specifically to improve your skin. Though more research is required before anyone can make a definitive statement, the available literature is encouraging. According to research, using probiotic skin care can help with acne, dryness, and eczema, as well as address skin issues associated with ageing. S thermophiles, lactobacillus, and other probiotic strains can be beneficial. If you're concerned that your skin's microbiome needs to be balanced, or if you're dealing with skin issues that need to be addressed, speaking with a celebrity dermatologist may be beneficial. They will be able to examine your skin type and assist you in determining what your skin requires (including whether your healthy bacteria is out of balance and you require probiotics for skin health) so you can achieve flawless, healthy skin.

Tattoos: Understand risks and precautions
Tattoos might make you feel cool and are more common than ever, but don't take tattooing lightly. Know the risks and understand basic safety precautions and aftercare steps before jumping into tattooing! You could be the proud owner of a new tattoo in a matter of hours — but don't let the ease of getting tattoos stop you from making a thoughtful decision about permanent body art. Before you get a tattoo, make sure you know what's involved. Also, be certain that tattooing is the right decision for you. How tattoos are done: A tattoo is a permanent mark or design made on your skin with pigments inserted through pricks into the skin's top layer. Typically, the tattoo artist uses a hand-held machine that acts much like a sewing machine, with one or more needles piercing the skin repeatedly. With every puncture, the needles insert tiny ink droplets. The process — which is done without anesthetics — causes a small amount of bleeding and slight to potentially significant pain. Tattoos breach the skin, which means that skin infections and other complications are possible. Specific risks include: 1) Allergic reactions. Tattoo dyes — especially red, green, yellow and blue dyes — can cause allergic skin reactions, such as an itchy rash at the tattoo site. This can occur even years after you get the tattoo. 2) Skin infections. A skin infection — which might cause redness, swelling, pain and a pus-like drainage — is possible after tattooing. Other skin problems. Sometimes bumps called granulomas form around tattoo ink. Tattooing can also lead to keloids — raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue. 3) Bloodborne diseases. If the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood, you can contract various bloodborne diseases — including tetanus, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. 4) MRI complications. Rarely, tattoos or permanent makeup might cause swelling or burning in the affected areas during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams. In some cases, tattoo pigments can interfere with the quality of the image — such as when a person who has permanent eyeliner has an MRI of the eye. Medication or other treatment — including possible removal of the tattoo — might be needed if you experience an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink or you develop an infection or other skin problem near a tattoo.

Pulling Teeth With Coconut Oil
I haven't used tooth paste in a year or so. And at 38 years old, still cavity-free! That's because I use a fabulous (and natural) method called oil-pulling. There isn't a toothpaste on the planet (that I know of) that can do these six things, and not contain hazardous material such as bleach, sodium fluoride, triclosan, and sodium lauryl sulfate, just to name a few. Do I brush my teeth? Of course! But I do so before I pull with oil and again right after. I am sharing this card with you because it because a hot topic in the comments of @JordanHamilton's card about Washing Your Toothbrush, which you can see here. Here's how I go about making my own in batches: Ingredients: * Natural coconut oil * Peppermint essential oil * Eucalyptus essential oil * Myrrh essential oil Tools: * Sheet pan (that fits in the freezer) * Aluminum foil * Miniature paper candy cups * Squeeze bottle (with a tip) 1. Place a sheet of aluminum foil over a baking sheet (to catch your drips, drops and mistakes). 2. Set out as many candy paper cups that you can fit onto the sheet. 3. Melt the oil and place into a squeeze bottle. 4. Carefully, fill each cup ALMOST TO THE TOP. Leave a smidge of space at the top. 5. Add ONE DROP of each of your essential oils to the cups. Go in order so you don't get confused. 6. Place the tray on a flat surface in the freezer. A fridge will work too. 7. Be sure to simply lay a sheet of aluminum foil over the tray. Don't seal it, just lay it. 8. Let these harden all the way and store them in a freezer ziplock bag in the fridge. I hope you all found this super helpful. This is super easy and doable. I hope you give this a try. @alywoah @TurtleyTurtles @keith2web @LAVONYORK @EasternShell @Animaniafreak @atmi @kekers96 @buddyesd @DevonArce @MaricelvaRomero @CallMeMsDragon @stephosorio @petname83 @rhanes @AlyssaGelet818 @DeniseNishikawa @AlexisRiver @AlyssaGelet818 @ScarletMermaid @kimnam94 @SarahRegulski @MikeyJBenedict @LysetteMartinez @BlackXShield @YunBao @darcmana @daljiyong @FalseLove @anitadutoit @MyAffairWith @SarahHm11 @moralesdaisy199 @yashiracruz @leinyhmen01 @SigDev @humairaa @SeoInHan @IzamarPalomo @JelliBelli111 @spacewasp @PrincessNae @karolinehoffma
