Aging changes in skin: Common problems and how to deal with them

Aging changes in skinWe are all aware that our bodies change with time. Being the biggest organ, and the one most exposed to external influences, so does our skin. Unavoidably and constantly, giving us enough warning signs and usually slowly enough that we can react in time.  Understandably, our skin age does not always reflect our real age, due to different occupations, climate, nutrition and natural pigments, to name a few.  Some of the changes can be postponed and softened; still, not many of us pay enough attention to prevention. The least we can do is become familiar with what to expect in the near or far future.

Frequent diagnosis

There is a great number of skin diseases present, however, we will name just a couple of the most prominent ones. Factors that influence skin changes can be separated into two major groups, internal and external, with genetics and UV radiation being the most frequent causes respectively. Therefore, sun induced changes are the most common skin problems.

The most prominent ones are solar lengitines, a structural and color changes that do not require medical treatment, only cosmetic and actinic keratoses, precancerous growths, luckily with extremely low malignant potential.  However, do not leave them medically unattended for years since they can progress into carcinoma.

Pruritus or commonly, itching, is another common condition with aging skin. It affects almost a half of population older than 60 years. If not a consequence of dermatitis (eczema) it is usually caused by some non skin disease and requires a medical attention.

Age or liver spots are another result of combination of genetics and sun exposure. They are usually harmless, but can be a sign of something serious, make sure you visit your dermatologist.

Healthier aging and good looks

Let us emphasize, closely monitor your skin. Prevention and acting on time are the best things you can do to forestall problems and enable healthier aging.

Now, how to keep good looks? If genetics, skin tan and other factors that cause skin problems are on your side, you certainly have the upper hand. Still, there are changes that are bound to happen to your skin. It loses moisture, elasticity and thickness, resulting in wrinkles, sagging and becoming more prone to injuries with age. Lotions and creams help to a certain extent; however, the key element is keeping the fat underneath the very skin at an optimal level. This is what really keeps the skin younger and fresh looking. The smart way to go are dermal fillers. The effect they have on your skin cannot be paralleled by any cosmetic mean in terms of natural looks. However, it is of crucial importance not to overdo. You want to look younger, not like someone else.

To sum up, skin changes are bound to happen. Still, the speed they happen at and the results and consequences they bring can be controlled to certain extent. Make sure to inhibit anything that is within your powers, react on time and have measure in everything you do. Your skin will appreciate it.

Quality Sleep Patterns For A Healthy Family

Quality Sleep PatternsThe well being of kids is the top most concern of every parent. They always want to keep their kids physically fit and healthy. For that purpose they intend different health plans, food charts and activity lists so that their children lead a healthy life. One of the important elements of a healthy and active life is sleep. A healthy amount of sleep is vital for every person as quality sleep enables him to actively participate in daily life activities, perform well in his assigned tasks and achieve better position in society. In short the success of life is greatly dependant on the quality of sleep you have taken at night.

As life has gone too fast and busy, kids and parents both are involved in so many activities that they find it difficult to take out sufficient time for a healthy sleep and end up taking junk sleep in bits to fulfill their natural need. To develop quality sleep patterns for a healthy family, parents should never compromise on the sleep schedule they set for themselves and for their kids.

The quality sleep refers to a deeper and sounder sleep that helps in mental and physical restoration and enhances person’s physical and mental health. Junk sleep is a poor sleep that doesn’t contribute to physical or mental restoration and results in so many mental and physical health issues. If a family is not getting quality sleep regularly, their relation and bonding badly suffers as the family members do not find themselves able to carry their responsibilities and care for each other.

Parents should never overlook this important element of life and should develop quality sleep patterns for a healthy family. To develop a healthy sleep pattern in your children, it is very important to keep your kids mentally composed and away from worries.  Also make the ambiance of bedrooms highly comfortable and peaceful. The beds and mattresses should be very comfortable and cosy and the curtains should be thick enough to keep the room dark and quiet.

If your kid is undisturbed, he will take less time to sleep and will sleep better.  Parents should make sure their kids practice healthy activities and follow healthy sleep schedule. For that purpose, you need to become a role model for your kids, develop healthy schedules for yourself and make all of your family members to follow that schedule. For example if all of your family members will develop the habit of eating dinner at 7 and going to bed at 9 pm, it will not even lead to a healthy and organized life but will also create a sense of bonding with one another.

Setting time for each activity makes it easier for your mind to accept the sleep when night prevails. It keeps you away from sleep related issues like lack of sleep, disturbed sleep, insomnia and sleep apnea. If parents control and improve the sleeping habits of their children right from the beginning, it becomes easier for them to program a healthy schedule in their minds and resolve the issues well on time. As long terms benefits are attached with a quality and healthy sleep, this is the best way to invest in their child’s better future.

Can the Anti-Aging Secret Be Found In – Red Wine?

Can the Anti-Aging Secret Be Found InStaying young longer means that we will have younger and more beautiful skin for a longer time, and also we will not show any signs of aging; for women this means that they can be pretty throughout their whole life without worrying about a single a wrinkle appearing. Red wine is perhaps the solution to all our youth-related problems. Recent research has confirmed that red wine does indeed have anti-aging properties.

Researchers have also calculated that women should be drinking a glass of red wine daily, and men should be drinking two glasses of red wine to have the best benefits red wine can offer. Red wine is great because it is reach in antioxidants that can help reduce the damage from free radicals that bombard our cells and play a key role in aging and all related problems with it.

Wine and stress

It has been pointed out that although red wine helps a lot in reducing the aging process, it is also important to know that by reducing stress you will also help your body stay younger for longer. Moreover, it could be an effect from drinking wine that people are less stressful. On the other hand, it is important not to connect wine with a good stress-solvent as it can soon turn into plain alcoholism.

Moreover, it is also vital to note that red wine is great for preventing aging processes, but it is also beneficial as it will help prevent and cure some more serious issues in our bodies. It is concluded that wine is rich in antioxidants and that it is so great for our bodies because when wine is fermented, the skin and the seeds of the grape are also included in the process.

Diet

Red wine alone will not be a surefire way to preserve your body from the aging effects, it is also important to have a healthy diet that will include other foods that include antioxidants and which will enable your body to have the most nutrients. Moreover, with a healthy diet and with a stress-free life, and with a glass or two of red wine it is possible to stay healthy and younger for longer.

However, this means that you will have to adapt to a new lifestyle, which in itself is not that big of a change, but you will soon feel the benefits of a good and healthy lifestyle. You will feel more energetic and full of energy; and on in the inside, your immune system will be strong and ready to tackle anything.

Not too much though

It is extremely important to remember that too much literally means too much when you are drinking more than the recommended amount of red wine daily, it can not only ruin your overall appearance, but it can also have negative health impacts too.

Besides not smoking, it is vital to know how much is allowed daily, so that you do not cross the border of becoming an alcoholic. Alcohol in your body will soon start to dehydrate you, and it will be very much visible to everyone around you, and your appearance will soon turn into a disfigured you.

Healthy drinker

By drinking the regular amount of organic red wine daily, it is possible to stay younger longer and it will show on your skin too, it will be radiant. But, do not overdo it as it can quickly deteriorate your health, which will also be visible so that everyone can see that you are in a bad shape.

On the other hand, red wine can also help prevent many illnesses that in later life can pose quite a threat to memory loss; even cancer cells can be prevented to a degree by a regular red wine intake. But it needs to be mentioned that without proper diet and exercise, you are drinking for naught, as red wine alone will not do any miracles, and unless you invest into your body, it will be a fool’s errand. Remember to stay true to the prescription and that you have regular visits to your doctor as well, as they can get a checkup and tell you if it is working or not.

 

Natural ways to defeat allergies

ways to defeat allergiesAvoiding allergen that causes allergies is the best way to avoid allergies. Managing to do this isn’t always easy as allergens such as house dust mites or fungal spores are what we breed in even the cleanest houses while they are at the same time hard to spot, therefore not easy to get rid of.

Further, if you own a pet or someone close to you does, avoiding allergens gets even harder.

To avoid some of the most common allergies, we give you some practical advice that may help you:

 

House dust mites

Dust mites, which are microscopic insects that breed in household dust, are the most common cause of people’s allergies. Even though you can’t get rid of mites entirely, you can limit their amount by:

– Instead of covering your floors with a carpet, opt for keeping floors clean and in wood or hard vinyl floor coverings

– Choose blinds that are easily clean, such as roller blinds and similar

– Soft toys, curtains, cushions and similar textures must be cleaned regularly, either by vacuuming or washing (at a high temperature). This is particularly true for households with pets

– Opt for covers on mattresses, duvets and pillows that were allergen-proofed

– All surfaces should be cleaned with a damp, clean cloth. Dry dusting spreads the allergens further

– Places that are properly vented don’t hold much allergen. This is why you should be using extractor fans or dehumidifiers to increase ventilation and reduce humidity. During warm weather you can open the windows

Even though the whole house is a hotbed of allergens, you should concentrate your energy on cleaning areas where you spend the most time, such as the bedroom and living room.

 

Pets

Most people think it’s pet’s fur that causes an allergic reaction which is absolutely untrue. What causes allergies is exposure to flakes of their dead skin, saliva and dried urine. Still, no matter how much you like pets, direct exposure will definitely cause allergies, no matter how good you clean them. Yet, if there is a pet in your household and you are not in a position to remove it, here’s what you should try to reduce the damage:

– Limit pets to one room only or don’t let them in your room

– Remove carpets from your home

– Keep pets outside as much as possible

– Wash pets at least once a fortnight

– Do all grooming outside

– All sheets that the pet has been in contact with should be washed at 60°C. This goes for soft furnishings too

– Vacuum the household regularly, every day if possible

If you are visiting a friend or relative with a pet, ask them to vacuum on the day of your visit. Further, what can help to reduce symptoms is taking an antihistamine medicine one hour before entering a pet-inhabited house

 

Mold spores

Molds can grow both inside and outside the house and they usually “take over” any decaying matters. The spores molds release are allergens, while the molds themselves aren’t. When a sudden rise in temperature happens, and most often in a moist environment, spores are released. We are all familiar with these situations – wet clothes are drying next to a fireplace/heating body, central heating is turned on in a damp house, etc.

To help prevent mold spores, try:

– Keeping your home dry and well-ventilated

– When showering or cooking keep internal doors closed to prevent damp air from spreading through the house

– Whenever possible, don’t dry clothes indoors, store clothes in damp cupboards or keep them long in a washing machine after washing

– Make sure you deal with damp and condensation in your home

Steam mops are an amazing way to get rid of dust in your home and reduce mold

 

Pollen allergies

This type of allergies is caused when plants (trees and grasses) release pollen particles into the air.

To avoid exposure to pollen you can:

– When you are aware of pollen count being high, void drying clothes and bedding outside

– During mid-morning and early evening make sure doors and windows are shut

– After being outside – shower, wash your hair and change your clothes

– Whenever pollen count is high, wear wraparound sunglasses to protect your eyes

In case you have ever suffered a severe allergic reaction always carry two adrenaline auto-injectors for precaution. Those closest to you should be informed of your allergies so they can react in time if something happens.

Laser hair removal: What to expect

Laser hair removalAnnoying hairs on the face or any other part of our body are just a segment of “repairs” we wish to do do, and who can blame us. Owing to the cosmetic surgery and beauty treatments we can now trick Mother Nature into looking way better than we had ever hoped to or just enhance our current beauty. Either way, investing in both our inner and outer beauty is a wonderful thing, and today we are dedicating a bit of our time to laser hair removal and what all you can expect after the treatment is done. Further, we’ll discuss some strategies that can help you get the most out of your laser hair removal treatment.

In the hours, days and weeks following your laser hair removal, this is what you might expect to happen:

–  Itchiness, redness, pinkness. Since the laser has disabled your hair follicles, it’s probable it has irritated your skin a bit. Don’t be surprised if you experience some pinkness, redness and itchiness for up to 24 hours after the procedure.

Some have described the sensation as razor burn. Even though such a sensation is normal, in case it lasts longer than 24 hours – give your specialist a call. You know, just in case.

– Shedding is absolutely normal after the hair removal procedure is done. In fact, you may notice less hair growth up to three weeks after your initial treatment. What happens is a so called anogen phase – this is when follicles shed the hairs that were in the growing phase of their cycle. You’ll notice that the shedding process will look like blackheads. In order for the hairs to shed easier, exfoliating is the most important part of the process.

– Regrowth happens with follicles that were resting when the procedure was done, which is why they are expected to “wake up” over the course of the next few weeks. This is why there will still be growing hair.

Here are some things that you can do to help your hair removal be most effective, and speed the process along:

– Exfoliating should be done three times per week on the area where you had hair removed. You don’t want to irritate your skin, so treat the areas gently. Use an exfoliating scrub or a washcloth.

– Cutting and shaving is the way to treat regrowing hair. Don’t pluck, wax or tweeze new growth. Don’t forget that your next appointment will be in four to eight weeks. Meaning, you need to leave the hairs in their shafts for the laser to work on them. You can shave, cut and/or trim hairs as necessary.

– Sunscreen is pretty much a must. Don’t go tanning or forget sunscreen because you need your skin to be as light as possible for the appointment. In addition to the irritation caused by the laser, sunburn will also irritate your skin. So, use PF 30 sunscreen for two weeks before and after each treatment and be careful.

– Know your medications in order to avoid any problems or complications. In case you need to go over-the-counter, on prescription, or even on herbal medication, consult your healthcare provider and see how/whether laser hair removal treatments fit in your therapy. If necessary, your next appointment can always be rescheduled.

You should know that the entire treatment of permanent hair removal will take bout one year, or a total of six visits. Your first two appointments will be scheduled four weeks apart. Until the treatment is complete, in the span of ever six to eight weeks, you will have to return to the laser hair removal office to repeat the treatments. For those with stronger and darker hairs, the process takes a bit longer. Sometimes, in case it’s needed – you might like to return for periodic maintenance.

Laser hair removal will definitely make your life easier and you won’t have to think about those annoying hair any longer! A piece of advice – in case something feels wrong, don’t hesitate to call your laser hair removal office.

Useful tips on how to get rid of acne scars

how to get rid of acne scarsAcne leaving scars on your skin is worse than having acne or pimples; it is hard to get rid of them, and they look awful. But, it is possible to get rid of them even by using home-made remedies, be warned that if the scars look really serious, you should consider visiting a dermatologist just to be sure.

The do-it-yourself home-made methods can yield great results if you know what you are doing, it is imperative that you do not take any creams or ointments to which you are allergic as you will have done more damage than good. Moreover, these methods can also help in preventing future scars from appearing. It is best to design a skin cleanse regime that will include prevention and toxic cleansing as a daily routine.

Cortisone is great for scars

If you notice that scars will be formed, and that they are red or swollen, it is best to look for creams that contain cortisone. Not only is cortisone great for inflammation but it is great for greatly healing and reducing scarring in the long run. And as a bonus, dermatologists also prefer to use cortisone as a source to calm the skin. Moreover, cortisone based creams are sold without prescriptions and they are great for any home-made remedy.

On the other hand, once you calm down the skin and reduce scarring, it is best to use some kind of fade cream to hide the irregular skin color so that your skin will look natural. Perhaps Vitamin C is the best alternative that you can find without a prescription. By finding creams which contain faders, you can help the skin from the outside to heal faster. Both cortisone and fader creams are quickly absorbed by the skin, and they have an effect on the necessary skin cells in no time.

Face peels

Handling chemical peels is something that you should be really careful with, depending on the chemicals used; you could seriously damage or scar your skin even more. However, if you know what you are using and what kind of skin type you have, then it is possible to create the perfect peel which will help you not only get rid of scars, but it will also help in preventing them from appearing anytime soon.

Face peels usually contain a lot of acid, and you should be careful with it, because the more potent the acid is, the deeper into the skin it will seep, so you should be prepared in advance for any possibility. However, it must be noted that chemical peels are most beneficial for fixing inflammatory skin discoloration and for minor acne scars; otherwise you will be doing more damage to yourself.

Different treatments

If the scarring is not getting better on its own or if the remedies you tried are not being efficient, then perhaps it is time to visit your dermatologist for professional advice on how to get rid of scars. Laser skin treatments are great in reducing scars, evening out skin and stimulating your skin to create more collagen. Because collagen is the building block of the skin, it can help in filling in the acne scars.

On the other hand, if you need to get rid of major scars, but laser treatments seem ineffective, then it is perhaps better to opt for filler treatments. Your dermatologist will basically fill up scars with a specific product that will last between 4 to 6 months and you will need to come back for further fills. Even though it is a permanent solution, but this type of dermal therapy can be a great option to fight the battle with scars.

Patience is a virtue

You will need to stock up on patience because basically your skin will heal itself over time, and even if you do not help it along the way, it will get rid of even the deepest of scars, but it will take some time. However, with the help of certain treatments it is possible to speed up the process, but do not expect miracles to happen from only one session, you will have to be patient and ready to fight a long-term battle.

How to Avoid Computer Eye Strain

Avoid Computer Eye StrainSince the introduction of computers at the workplace, many people have suffered reduction in their vision and a slow degradation in their eye health. Not only that, but computers at the workplace have brought about a number of new health concerns which have not been present before. Vision problems are the main concern when working with computer, and the term for people who experience this during work is labeled “computer vision syndrome”.

As much as computers can influence and affect vision and eye health, it cannot cause any permanent damage or changes. However, it can help with developing other related issues and unless handled with care and in time, your vision might be at stake. People who already wear glasses are at a higher risk to be affected by computer work from their workplace.

Complaints

Although many studies have shown that computer related work can influence vision and can cause vision related symptoms it is still uncertain to what degree it can influence eye health. Moreover it is still unclear whether these problems appear only with people who work closely with computers. Also, it was found that the extent to which an individual can experience visual issues mostly depends on the abilities of the individual and upon the demands of the task being handled. In terms, not only computer work can influence eye issues.

On the other hand, good news is that commonly people who suffer from some kind of visual symptoms at the end of the day and after they rested their eyes will feel better. However, if physical and visual fatigue continuous, it may result not only in lowered concentration and productivity, but it can also lead to reduced job satisfaction.

The lighting around your workplace, your screen and the environment should be balanced, do not create a huge difference between the lights, because it will affect how your eye and ocular muscles react to change, and if you have to move your eyes quickly and all the time, it will tire you fast.

It is important to set balanced workplace lighting so that your eyes are relaxed while working; too much strain on the muscles can lead to head related issues as well. Moreover, it is important to adjust shades on windows too, as windows are the main source of glare if someone sits next to one without anything to cover natural light bouncing off your screen.

Computer use care

It is extremely important that you keep your screen at eye level, so that you can hold a normal posture while working, and also it is important to keep eye strain to a minimal, so that you are behaves as much as possible in a natural manner.
