Skin Care Products Vs HomeMade Acne Treatments

Dry Acne Skin

============= 

There is a false myth running that only oily-skinned people are likely to develop acne. Well, this is definitely wrong! Acne does not choose victims on such criteria; yet in certain cases, people with oily skin are more affected by this dermatological condition. Bacteria, hormonal changes, an unhealthy diet and a chaotic lifestyle could make the right premises for a dry acne skin outburst. Before starting any targeted treatment, it is important to identify the causes behind the acne problem. Yet, a double approach is necessary most of the time: one for the skin dryness and another to eliminate acne.

 To treat dry acne skin you have to keep it well moisturized while preserving the natural moisture content specific to the tissues. The skincare products normally used should contain soothing and healing agents like aloe vera, for example, that moisturizes and promotes …

Omega-3 fatty acids

Maintaining a proper balance of dietary fats may decrease the levels of bone loss associated with post-menopausal osteoporosis, according to a recent study by scientists at Purdue University and the Indiana University School of Medicine. Estrogen deficiency, which is common in post-menopausal women, is a main contributor to bone loss. Research has found that diets with a low ratio of omega-6 fatty acids to omega-3 fatty acids can minimize this. Omega-6 fatty acids are typically found in foods such as grains and beef, while omega-3 fatty acids are found in foods such as walnuts and salmon. Several research studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids help promote bone formation according to Bruce Watkins, professor and director of Purdues Center for Enhancing Foods to Protect Health. That research also indicates that higher intakes of omega-6 fatty acids lead to an increased production of compounds associated with bone loss.” The Journal of …

Week 17

I think the hag must have known someone who was pregnant at one time. She wanted to find a way to let me know that she wouldn’t approve if I decided I wanted to dye my hair. Yesterday she asked me (with a big smile) if this is my natural hair color. I said , “The top 2 inches are my natural color”. Then she said, “I thought it was your natural color but then I noticed you had roots and it’s bad for the baby to color your hair while you’re pregnant.” It’s cool how she can both insult me and give me bogus medical advise all in one sentence. I can’t decide the perfect thing to say to her. Perhaps I’ll smile big when I inform her that there are many clinics in the area that can remove that gnarly mustache of hers. Actually I’ll just spare her. …

Vaginal Discharge During Pregnancy

 Vaginal discharge during pregnancy is common and it is not your imagination. This discharge is referred to as leucorrhea, a mild smelling milky discharge. Vaginal discharge during pregnancy is due to the fact that you are now having increased estrogen production. You are having a greater blood flow to the vaginal area as well. The secretions from the cervix and vagina, old cells from the walls of the vagina, and normal bacterial flora from the vagina are causing the excess discharge.

 

The so called mucus plug creates a protective barrier. When you are getting closer to labor you will notice even more vaginal discharge during your pregnancy. This discharge will look a bit different than when you were in your earlier months of pregnancy. This is fine, it is just a part of being pregnant and the body taking care of itself. When your cervix begins to thin out and …
