How to Properly Exfoliate Your Skin?

Did you know that your skin sheds all the dry, old, hardened skin cells to make room for new cells even during the night? Yes, you are endowed with skin that is naturally replenishing itself. All you need to do is remove the old and dead cells from the surface of your skin using a good exfoliant so that new cells will take their place to give you healthy, glowing skin. Among these benefits of exfoliating is improved blood circulation that lends you a healthy glow. No wonder, then, that you need to exfoliate your skin no matter what your skin type is.

However, it is useful to learn what skin type you have just so you get the appropriate products and apply them with the right frequency. For instance, if you have oily skin, you should go for non-comedogenic skin care products without fail and use an exfoliant at least three times a week. The exfoliants will help smoothen and tone your skin making it more receptive to oil-controlling ingredients of the skin care products that are applied subsequently. If you have dry skin, you should not excessively exfoliate or dry out your skin further.

It is also useful to consult your dermatologist to know if you should complement your exfoliation regimen with an exfoliant scrub or sponge.

So, here’s how to determine your skin type. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and pat dry. Wait for thirty minutes and assess your skin type with face tissue. If your skin is oily, then chances are you have oily skin. If your skin is flaky and dry, you have dry skin and if you have oily skin only in the T-zone of your skin, you have combination skin. However, if you have acne-prone skin, consult a skin specialist before you try any skin care product.

Dry Skin
If you have dry skin, avoid using physical exfoliant products like scrub, glove, or sponge as they can lead to microtears on the skin. Alpha-hydroxy-acids work well with dry skin by replenishing and rejuvenating the skin with new cells that lend you a fresh, healthy, and glowing look. It is doubly important to use a moisturizer right after exfoliation if you have a dry skin condition.

Oily Skin
If you have excessively oily skin (but not acne-prone skin), you may use a gentle physical exfoliant like a scrub and use it in a circular motion before rinsing with lukewarm water (and not hot water).

Daily microfoliant exfoliant:

Achieve brighter, smoother skin every day with this iconic exfoliating powder. The rice-based powder gets activated when it comes in contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to polish skin. A Skin Brightening Complex of Phytic Acid from Rice Bran, White Tea and Licorice helps balance uneven skin tone while a blend of Colloidal Oatmeal and Allantoin helps calm skin. The good news is, it is gentle enough for daily use.

How to use the exfoliant:

Dispense about a half-teaspoon of Daily Microfoliant into wet hands and rub them to create a paste. Apply to the face in circular motions and make sure you avoid the eye area. Massage gently for one minute, then rinse thoroughly.

Po czym poznać alergię?
Kichanie, łzawienie oczu, spuchnięte powieki i katar sienny to typowe objawy alergii. U niektórych mogą być one bardzo nasilone, przez co niemożliwe staje się normalne funkcjonowanie. Wiele osób ma alergię na pyłki, ale uczulać mogą także rozmaite produkty spożywcze. Problematyczne są również roztocza kurzu, sierść zwierząt, zarodniki pleśni. Jeśli ktoś podejrzewa u siebie uczulenie, to warto odwiedzić alergologa. Przeprowadzi on odpowiednie testy i wdroży właściwe leczenie. Najczęściej jest ono objawowe, ale poprawia komfort życia pacjenta. Niestety żadne leki nie pomogą, jeśli ktoś będzie miał stały kontakt z alergenem. Alergia niejedno ma imię Do wystąpienia reakcji alergicznych dochodzi w momencie, gdy system immunologiczny staje się nadwrażliwy na konkretne alergeny. Nie pozostaje on bierny wobec potencjalnego zagrożenia, co niestety wiąże się z wystąpieniem w szeregu uporczywych objawów. U niektórych osób są one stosunkowo łagodne i znikają samoistnie, ale zdarzają się także ostre przypadki, łącznie zatruciem pokarmowym, wstrząsem anafilaktycznym. Jeśli ktoś jest stale narażony na działanie alergenów, to skutkuje to wystąpieniem chronicznego stanu zapalnego. Nawet jeśli ktoś nie miał wcześniej problemów z uczuleniem, to może się ono pojawić w różnym wieku. Do czynników ryzyka zachorowania na chorobę alergiczną zalicza się zanieczyszczenie powietrza, źle zbilansowaną dietę, częste infekcje wirusowe, nawet bierne palenie tytoniu. Jeśli organizm jest z jakichś powodów osłabiony, to niestety staje się podatny na rozwój alergii. Niektórzy są uczuleni także na jad owadów, wystarczy jedno użądlenie, aby doszło do wstrząsu anafilaktycznego, który stanowi zagrożenie dla życia. Bez natychmiastowej pomocy lekarskiej może skończyć się niestety śmiercią. Alergia wziewna Alergia może być wziewna, czyli spowodowana pyłkami roślin, zarodnikami grzybów, roztoczami kurzu domowego, naskórkiem zwierząt. Wyróżnia się także alergie pokarmowe. Uczulać mogą rozmaite produkty spożywcze, ale najczęściej źródłem problemu są orzeszki ziemne, soja, pszenica, mleko krowie, jajka, ryby i owoce morza. Oczywiście zdarzają się także osoby, które są uczulone nawet na pomidora. Alergia pokarmowa W przypadku alergii pokarmowej charakterystycznymi objawami będą dolegliwości ze strony układu pokarmowego. Pojawiają się nudności, wymioty, biegunki, bóle brzucha. Uczulenie widać także na skórze, bo pokrywa się ona pokrzywką, rumieniem, czasem nawet swędzącymi bąblami. Klasycznym objawem jest również nieżyt nosa. U dzieci bardzo często pojawiają się różne alergie pokarmowe, szczególnie na mleko krowie, występują u nich atopowe zapalenie skóry, pokrzywka, świąd, katar sienny i biegunka. Układ odpornościowy młodego człowieka nie jest jeszcze w pełni wykształcony, dlatego może niewłaściwie reagować na alergeny. Niektórzy mają alergię skórną, objawy pojawiają się przy kontakcie z alergenem. Alergia krzyżowa Wyróżnia się jeszcze alergię krzyżową, czyli na rozmaite alergeny będące w tej samej grupie, czyli o zbliżonej budowie białkowej. Rozmaite rodzaje chorób alergicznych Do głównych objawów alergii zalicza się: - katar, - kaszel, - trudności z oddychaniem, - obrzęki, pokrzywkę, - zaczerwienienie skóry, - świąd, - wyprysk, - migrenę, - bóle brzucha, - biegunki, - nudności i wymioty, - wzdęcia, - uczucie przelewania w żołądku, - wstrząs anafilaktyczny. Mogą pojawić się rozmaite choroby alergiczne, a najpopularniejszy jest alergiczny nieżyt nosa. Jest on zatkany, swędzi, wycieka z niego wodnista wydzielina. Przyczyną wystąpienia tego rodzaju symptomów jest najczęściej kontakt z alergenem wziewny, czyli przykładowo z roztoczami, sierścią zwierząt, pyłkami roślin. Z kolei przy alergicznych chorobach oczu pacjent boryka się z zapaleniem spojówek, atopowym zapaleniem rogówki, atopowym zapaleniem skóry. Objawy te występują w wyniku kontaktu oczu lub ich okolic z alergenem. Oczy stają się zaczerwienione, swędzą, łzawią, pieką. Pojawia się także światłowstręt. Astma oskrzelowa Do alergicznych chorób zalicza się astmę oskrzelową, czyli chroniczne zapalenie dróg oddechowych. Charakterystycznymi objawami są ucisk w klatce piersiowej, co niektórzy mylą z atakiem serca. Pojawiają się świszczący oddech, kaszel, atopia. Coraz więcej osób zmaga się z atopowym zapaleniem skóry, czyli chorobą alergiczną, wiąże się to z uporczywym świądem, suchością skóry, katarem siennym, zapaleniem spojówek. W przypadku alergii bardzo ważne jest to, aby dowiedzieć się, co konkretnie uczula, bo pozwoli to na podjęcie dalszych kroków. Lekarz przeprowadza dokładny wywiad z pacjentem, wykonuje też rozmaite pytania, w zależności od rodzaju zgłoszonych objawów. Często wykonuje się testy skórne punktowe, innym razem trzeba zastosować dietę eliminacyjną. Dostępne są również testy na alergie pokarmowe. Można złagodzić uporczywe symptomy alergii, ale niestety trudno mówić o całkowitym wyeliminowaniu ich. Stosowane są również tabletki, krople i spraye na alergię. Lekarz przepisuje leki przeciwhistaminowe, glikokortykosteroidy, leki obkurczające błonę śluzową. W przypadku alergii warto pomyśleć o odczulaniu, ale zajmuje to wiele lat i nie gwarantuje wyzdrowienia. Zobacz także: https://www.cmpromed.pl/grozna-dla-zdrowia-i-zycia-alergia-na-jad-owadow/

GET WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL FOR INSTANT RELIEF FROM PAIN!
The decision of wisdom teeth removal is a common one and can provide relief from pain. However, there are a few things you need to keep in mind before making the choice.  First and foremost, your dentist will need to determine if you are a good candidate for removal.  If you have strong teeth or if your jaw is in good shape overall, you may not need to remove your wisdom teeth. TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction: What are “Wisdom Teeth” and Why Should a Patient Consider Wisdom Tooth Removal? How to Know if You Need to Remove Wisdom Teeth? How is wisdom teeth removal performed? What are the benefits of wisdom teeth removal? What are the risks of wisdom teeth removal? Conclusion: Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure that can provide relief from pain. INTRODUCTION: WHAT ARE “WISDOM TEETH” AND WHY SHOULD A PATIENT CONSIDER WISDOM TOOTH REMOVAL? There are many different types of wisdom teeth, each with its own specific function. In fact, some people refer to all of their teeth as “wisdom teeth.”  If you’re one of those people and you’re worried about your potential for wisdom tooth removal, let’s take a closer look at what these teeth are, what they do, and why they might need to go. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, which are the last teeth that come in. They typically come in between 17 to 25 years of age. Wisdom tooth removal is a common procedure that is done to remove wisdom teeth. The removal process includes surgical extraction or dental extraction. The reason for removing wisdom teeth is to prevent future problems such as pain, infection, and difficulty chewing food.  The procedure can be done in the hospital or doctor’s office. In the hospital, an individual will be put to sleep for a short period of time.  The tooth is removed by rotating it to loosen it from its socket and then it is extracted with special tools.  For dental extraction, the tooth is removed through an incision in the gum, and a small drill is used to remove the tooth.  The incisions are closed with sutures so that there is no bleeding or damage to the nearby tissues.  If a tooth is not removed, it can loosen, cause pain, fracture your jawbone, and lead to other difficulties. Many people have wisdom teeth that cannot come through the gums because of crowding in their jaws. They cannot come through because the other teeth next to them are too close!  Sometimes there is not enough room for all twenty-eight teeth in a mouth, so some must be removed. HOW TO KNOW IF YOU NEED TO REMOVE WISDOM TEETH? There are a few ways to determine if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it is likely that you need to remove your wisdom teeth: an uncontrollable urge to chew or suck on your teeth; pain when chewing or swallowing; difficulty speaking because of the noise made by molars grinding against each other.  If you have any questions about whether or not you need to remove your wisdom teeth, talk to your doctor. There are several factors to consider, including the severity of your symptoms and the age of your teeth. HOW IS WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL PERFORMED? Wisdom teeth are teeth that are not needed and can cause problems in the mouth. They can be removed through a surgical procedure.  There are different ways to remove wisdom teeth. The most common method is open surgery. One way is to remove them through traditional surgery. This involves making an incision in the gum and removing the tooth.  Another way is to remove them through a minimally-invasive surgery or laser ablation. This involves making a small cut in the gum and removing the tooth. Whichever method is used, it is important to take into account the patient’s age, health, and other factors before making a decision. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL? There are many benefits of wisdom teeth removal, depending on the person both medically and cosmetically.  A primary benefit is that wisdom teeth can cause gum disease and other dental problems. Additionally, they can also interfere with chewing and speaking, leading to difficulty with daily living activities. Come, let's dive into it wisdom tooth pain, how to fix wisdom tooth, sore wisdom tooth, pain from a tooth, sore tooth, gum sore, gum pain, fix wisdom tooth, hole in the tooth, hole in the wisdom tooth, hydrogen peroxide, ibuprofen, paracetamol, acetaminophen, infected wisdom tooth, partially erupted wisdom tooth, temporary filling material, salt water mouth wash, mouth rinse, inflammation, gum infection, inflamed gum, inflamed wisdom tooth, numbing gel, ice packs, wisdom teeth removal recovery tips
Vitamin C Can Get Rid Of Acne - Surprised?
Vitamin C is well-known for its benefits to healthy skin and the prevention of premature ageing, but its abilities in the treatment of acne are, to be honest, underappreciated. Vitamin C in various forms is beneficial to your skin, and the right vitamin C product may aid in the treatment of persistent acne. Of course, there are limitations — skin care products aren't magical, and topical vitamins are only a part of the solution. But we have a feeling that once you learn more about what vitamin C can do for you, you'll be adding another letter to your skin care alphabet. What Does Vitamin C Do? Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that primarily serves as an antioxidant in the body. L-ascorbic acid is another name for it. Vitamin C benefits include assisting your body in combating free radical damage, which are damaging compounds produced in a variety of ways that can harm your cells and cellular function. Vitamin C also aids in the production of collagen and can aid in wound healing. A typical adult requires between 75mg and 90mg of dietary vitamin C per day, which is primarily obtained from fruits and vegetables, most notably citrus, which can contain natural vitamin C or be fortified with it. In some cases, vitamin C supplementation is also beneficial. Depending on the type of acne, you could be dealing with infection, inflammation, or inefficient cell production. It turns out that vitamin C can help with all of this. The Effects of Vitamin C on Your Skin: What Are the Advantages? Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals caused by UV rays, smoke, and other environmental pollutants, which can impair normal dermal cell and collagen production. These are essential ingredients for keeping your skin looking vibrant and glowing — as well as acne-free. With less vitamin C, human skin is unable to combat the effects of free radicals. But that's not all you're missing out on if you don't get enough vitamin C. In brief, here are some of vitamin C's acne-fighting benefits: Healing Wounds Vitamin C has been shown in studies to increase the effectiveness of your body's wound-healing system. While acne may not resemble the lacerations from a slasher film, those little inflamed welts can become open wounds if picked at. To summarise, vitamin C can aid in the repair of damage. Vitamin C can also help to fade acne scars and even out skin tone issues. Defeat Wrinkles Okay, so this isn't directly related to acne, but vitamin C's ability to reduce wrinkles promotes healthier skin, which leads to fewer signs of ageing in general. The same factors that reduce the likelihood of wrinkles also reduce the likelihood of acne. Aside from the fact that vitamin C has been linked to increased collagen production, Combat Dry Skin As a topical vitamin, vitamin C can help with wrinkles and acne by reducing dry skin, which can cause dead skin cells to build up in your pores if left untreated. This is the first step in an acne outbreak, so while it will not cure existing acne, it will help to prevent some future acne. Combat Inflammation The ability of vitamin C to reduce inflammation is perhaps its most important effect. Reducing inflammation can help you manage certain types of acne, keep your skin functioning at its best, and keep you looking good. More importantly, anti-inflammatory properties can help with dryness, itching, and other issues that may cause acne flare-ups in the future. Other Acne Treatment Options Vitamin C can help you fight everything from acne to fine lines and the signs of ageing on your skin. However, vitamin C is not a stand-alone skin saviour. There are other acne treatments available, many of which can be used in conjunction with vitamin C. They are as follows: Retinoids Retinoids can aid in the treatment of a variety of skin conditions, including inflammatory acne. They can also be used as a preventative measure to maintain skin health and radiance. Tretinoin is one of the most widely used retinoids because it is effective at reducing dead skin cells and has been used safely for decades. It is usually necessary to obtain a prescription. There are additional advantages to using topical retinoids, such as the fact that tretinoin has been shown to aid in collagen synthesis. Antibiotics Antibiotics work by destroying the bacteria that cause acne, and the right one can be just what your skin needs to help it fight a particularly stubborn case of inflammatory acne. Salicylic Acid Salicylic acid is a compound that has a number of skin-care benefits. It is effective at removing dead skin cells (exfoliating) and has antifungal and antibacterial properties. It has anti-inflammatory properties as well. It's also more accessible than some retinoids because it's available without a prescription. Benzoyl Peroxide A topical disinfectant, such as benzoyl peroxide, has peel-like properties similar to retinoids, but with the added benefit of killing bacteria. Burning, dryness, peeling, or stinging are all possible side effects, but they are usually minor. Acne and Vitamin C While vitamin C is a great ally to have on your side in the fight against acne, there's a lot more available to help you hone your skin care. Some of these treatments include topical retinoids, salicylic acid, and even certain antibiotics. A vitamin C serum may be beneficial to your skin, especially when combined with a retinoid. However, the best way to find out what will work is to seek professional help from a healthcare professional. You may be able to get your daily vitamin C at breakfast, but if your acne is out of control, don't rely on home remedies. Help is available; speak with someone today to reclaim the face you adore.
5 Reasons to Give Up Shampoo
The "no poo" movement has gained popularity, which piqued my interest. People are abandoning shampoo bottles in favour of brushes and talc. Those who have long, beautiful hair claim that natural hair is healthier for you and the environment, and that it doesn't require much maintenance to look good. I experimented with going without shampoo for a few days to see how it felt. Here are five more reasons why you should get rid of your poo: 1. Avoid using chemicals. Many of the ingredients on shampoo and conditioner labels that are difficult to read are hazardous. Diethyl phthalate (DEP) is a possible carcinogen and hormone disruptor, but it aids in the retention of scent in hair products. Although sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) causes shampoo to foam, it can irritate your skin and even cause cancer, so you should avoid using it. Parabens can help your body stay fresh, but they've also been found in breast cancer tumours. 2. Reduce the amount of water used. You use less water when you don't wash your hair every day, which helps the environment. On days when I don't wash my hair, it works for me. I only need a quick sprinkling from the tub faucet. If you colour your hair, limiting the amount of water it comes into contact with is beneficial. The heat and minerals in your shower water can cause it to lose its colour. Water alone can cause up to 80% of the colour to fade. 3. Make the best possible use of your time. It takes a long time to get ready in the morning. You should wash your hair less frequently if you want to have more time to do other healthy things like go for a morning run or sleep in. You can be more adaptable if you know how to keep your hair clean for longer periods of time. Do not wash your hands before or after working out. For example, don't wash before or after a workout in the afternoon. 4. Improve the health of your hair. Some people go months without washing their hair. They claim that their hair eventually stops producing sebum, which is a type of oil produced on the scalp. The end result is shiny, moist, and healthy hair that isn't greasy at all. Sebum is beneficial to your hair because it promotes hair growth. Because they protect your hair, scalp oils are nature's moisturiser. However, no studies have been conducted to demonstrate that sebum operates on a supply and demand basis. What you do when you remove oils is more of an external thing. I'm not aware of any evidence that this can alter the way the body functions. 5. Get to know your hair. Finally, I was able to go two weeks without washing my hair, which was beneficial to me. My scalp health improved after a summer of not washing my hair frequently. I also learned a lot about my hair and let go of my own strict rules about when to wash it. I didn't have to wash my hair at all during the week.

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.
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.

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.
How Tretinoin Gets Rid Of Acne and How To Use It?
Tretinoin cream is available in a variety of concentrations, ranging from .05 percent cream to creams containing up to .1 percent tretinoin. The type of tretinoin cream you use to treat acne, like many other skincare medications, can have a significant impact on your results as well as your risk of experiencing side effects. We've listed all of the different tretinoin cream concentrations that are available in the United States below. We've also discussed which concentration is best for treating and preventing acne. We've also discussed how tretinoin can be used as an acne treatment to prevent breakouts and keep your skin clear all year. What Exactly Is Acne? Acne vulgaris, also known as acne vulgaris, is a common skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles, or pores, become clogged with a mixture of sebum, dead skin cells, and other substances. Acne affects almost everyone at some point in their lives. For some, it is a condition that develops during adolescence. Adult acne breakouts, which can occur in a person's 30s, 40s, and even well into middle age, are a lifelong annoyance for others. Acne breakouts are caused by a variety of factors. One of these is sebum, a natural oil produced by your sebaceous glands. When sebum accumulates on the surface layer of your skin, it can seep into your pores and clog them. Another factor in acne is the accumulation of dead skin cells over time. These cells, which are left over from the epidermal turnover process, can combine with sebum to clog pores and cause acne. Acne can become infected, inflamed, and painful when bacteria begin to multiply inside a clogged pore. Acne can range in severity from minor comedones to severe nodules and cysts that cause skin irritation. Forms of Acne Comedonal When your pores become clogged with sebum and/or dead skin cells, these small acne lesions form. Both whiteheads and blackheads are common forms of comedonal acne. Inflammatory Because of the presence of bacteria, these acne lesions are red, tender, and occasionally painful. Consider a typical red, inflamed pimple. Inflammatory acne commonly manifests as papules and pustules. Nodular and Cystic When bacteria multiply inside acne lesions deep within your skin, these severe forms of acne develop. Nodular and cystic acne are frequently difficult to treat and can leave acne scars. How Does Tretinoin Treat Acne? Tretinoin is one of the most powerful acne treatment on the market today. In fact, tretinoin and other topical acne treatments have been referred to as a "mainstay" of therapy for acne breakouts in studies. Retinoids, such as tretinoin, work by speeding up the process by which your skin produces new cells, a process known as epidermal turnover. To understand how this prevents acne, we must first cover the fundamentals of how your skin maintains and repairs itself, as well as the effects this process can have on the texture and appearance of your skin. Your skin serves several purposes. These include acting as a barrier against infectious pathogens like fungi and bacteria, regulating your temperature, keeping water inside your body, and protecting your organs from UV radiation and its effects. In other words, your skin does more than just make you look good. The outer layer of your skin, known as the epidermis, is responsible for the majority of this work. Your epidermis constantly produces new cells to replace older, worn ones in order to maintain itself. These cells are formed in the skin's basal layers. They gradually travel to the surface over time, allowing your older skin cells to detach and shed into the environment. This process is known as epidermal turnover. Consider it your skin's way of applying a fresh coat of paint as each old layer is worn away by the environment. The length of the epidermal turnover process varies according to age and a variety of other factors. The epidermis of most people changes every 40 to 56 days. So, what does this have to do with acne, and how does tretinoin play a role in it? One of the most important factors in the development of acne breakouts is the accumulation of old skin cells on the surface layer of your skin. Tretinoin aids in the exfoliation of dead skin cells by promoting skin cell turnover. This reduces your chances of developing clogged pores that develop into comedones or other types of acne. Tretinoin has other skin benefits in addition to its ability to treat acne. It directly stimulates collagen production, which can lighten and conceal lines, wrinkles, and other signs of facial ageing. It can also help with photodamaged skin, which is rough, dry, or unevenly pigmented as a result of sun exposure. These non-acne benefits are covered in greater detail in our guide to using tretinoin to treat wrinkles and skin ageing. How Fast Does Tretinoin Work? Tretinoin begins to work as soon as it is absorbed by your skin, but it usually takes a few months before you notice any significant improvements. In most studies, it takes three to six months for tretinoin to produce visible improvements in acne severity. During this time, you may notice that your skin improves gradually, or that you have fewer pimples or other types of acne. Some people who use tretinoin for acne experience a tretinoin "purge," which is an increase in acne, skin irritation, and other symptoms after starting tretinoin treatment. This is a temporary problem that usually resolves itself after a few months. After starting tretinoin, it's critical to persevere and be patient. It does work, but it may take a few months before you notice any significant changes in your skin. Which Tretinoin Cream Concentrations Are There? Tretinoin acne cream is available in several strengths in the United States, ranging from .025 percent, .05 percent, and .1 percent. Side Effects of Tretinoin Concentrations Tretinoin is a medication that is both safe and effective for the vast majority of people. However, it, like all medications, has the potential for side effects. The majority of these are minor and temporary, but there are a few you should be aware of before using any tretinoin-containing product. Tretinoin may cause the following side effects: A stinging or warming sensation Skin that is red, scaling, or dry An increase in acne lesions for a short period of time Lighter or darker skin discolouration Blisters, crusting, and swelling of the skin Pain, burning, redness, or flakiness are all symptoms of a bacterial infection. Tretinoin can also have serious side effects, especially if you have sensitive skin or skin that is easily irritated by topical treatments. If you experience severe irritation, hives, itching, or pain after applying topical tretinoin, contact your dermatologist right away. Another important tretinoin side effect to be aware of is that it can increase your skin's susceptibility to sunlight, making you more susceptible to sunburn. If you use tretinoin, you should exercise caution in bright sunlight. Wear protective clothing to shield your face from bright sunlight, apply sunscreen, and avoid prolonged sun exposure, even if it is artificial, as much as possible. The higher the concentration of tretinoin cream, as with most skin medications, the more significant the results. Creams with a higher tretinoin concentration are more effective at preventing acne and premature skin ageing, but they are also more likely to cause side effects. These side effects may be more common if you combine tretinoin with another acne treatment, such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. What Tretinoin Strength Should I Use for Acne? There is no "best" concentration of tretinoin cream for the treatment of acne because everyone's skin is different. Most people who use tretinoin, whether for acne prevention or as an anti-aging cream, experiment with different concentrations over time before settling on the type of cream that works best for their skin. Most dermatologists in the India begin by prescribing low strength medications to their patients. If this cream is ineffective in treating your acne, your doctor may advise you to try a stronger tretinoin cream. If you experience side effects like skin irritation, redness, or peeling, your doctor may recommend switching to a lower strength tretinoin cream, using the cream less frequently, or using an alcohol-free face moisturiser in conjunction with the tretinoin cream to prevent dryness. Finally, keep in mind that tretinoin frequently causes the most serious side effects during the first two to six weeks of use. This means that even if the concentration and dosage are perfect, there is still a chance that you will experience irritation and other "purge" effects when you begin treatment.
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.
