Stress Pimples, Fact Or Fiction?

Stress PimplesFor many years Dermatologists said that pimples were entirely a physical phenomenon, not related in any way to anxiety and stress. However, scientists have now proven the link between psychological problems and many physiological problems – including alopecia (hair loss), hormone imbalances, appetite disorders, insomnia and, most emphatically, skin breakouts.

The mechanism that causes our skin to break out in stress pimples, is related to hormone changes with the increased production of cortisol and adrenalin. Both of these cause the oil producing glands in skin to make more oil and this in turn can trigger acne outbreaks and other skin problems as pores become blocked with this excess sebum.

Appetite changes during periods of extreme stress can be either under or over-eating. When our appetite is decreased, our bodies do not take in sufficient of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are vital for our body to function optimally. Over-eating tends to be snacking on refined, high fat, high sugar product. Both these extremes have negative effects on our skin.

Being unable to sleep because we cannot switch off from a stressful day, causes problems for

How To Rid Back Acne

How To Rid Back AcneI suffered from back acne for a long time, and while I tried MANY different kinds of acne products that promised results. I didn’t notice any change besides my wallet getting lighter. I’ve learned a couple things on the road to getting a clear back, and I’d like to share with you the three top tricks that I used so you can enjoy an acne free back, too.

Many companies that produce food have started pumping added hormones into animals, and other things to make them grow faster, bigger and taste better. When you eat these foods, those hormones go into your body causing you to break out.

A really good way to fight against this is to detox the body. While this sounds pretty extreme, its rather simple. There are a couple different ways to detox the body, but my preferred method is to go on what is called an “apple fast”. Apples contain a high level of anti-oxidants that absorb the unwanted things in your body. Because it takes about three days for your body to completely digest the foods that you

How To Remove Acne Scars And Redness

Well there are a few things that you can try. Just remember to do a spot test before trying any of these treatments – while they’re natural, that doesn’t mean they will play nicely with your skin – and heck, stinging nettle and pufferfish are natural aren’t they? Not that you’d want to touch them…

Lemon Juice is perhaps the most effective way at reducing redness. It’s one of the best acne scar treatments around and is especially helpful if you’ve got redness. Lemon works as a natural bleach helping to fade scars and lighten and tighten the skin. As I’m sure you know – lemons are pretty powerful things.

How To Make Your Eyes Young

Make Your Eyes YoungDo you want to look ten years younger? Ladies, next to radiant skin, it’s all about eyes–one of the top priorities in making yourself less in terms of years of age.

The eyes are the windows to the soul as well as our age. How our eyes look very much reflects how old we are. So pamper your eyes and make sure they get the best treatment from you. Below are some important tips to making our eyes as young-looking as they can be,helping you lie about your true age.

1. Get an eye cream.

An eye cream is supposed to be the eye’s best friend, just like a dog is to man. Since the skin around the eyes is the thinnest in the body, they dry up easily and can wrinkle fastest. Creams like Avon Anew, Philosophy’s Eye Believe, Clinique’s All About Eyes and Loreal’s Double Revitalift are some of products worth trying and keeping. There are more products out there. Try them all and choose the best for you. Love your eyes!

Is Botox Causing Brain Damage?

BotoxIs it possible that Botox is causing brain damage? Someone must have some pretty good evidence that it does. Recently a man in Virginia was awarded $212 million dollars in a law suit suing Allergan, the makers of Botox, claiming that he suffered brain damage from Botox.

The man that sued for brain damage, was treated with Botox for hand tremors, and writer’s cramp. He was treated for this in 2007, and since receiving the treatment, has developed autoimmune encephalitis, resulting in permanent brain damage.

The sad thing here, is that he has spent $643,000 in medical expenses, and Virginia could reverse the award of the $212 million dollars, because they have a cap of $350,000 on punitive damages in cases like this.

The problem is that this man is permanently brain damaged. He will never be able to function normally again. I do not believe that you can put a price on something like that, especially a cap of $350,000, when he has already had to spend $643,000 for medical bills. No amount of money can replace the loss of being able to be a healthy,

Give Your Hair A Lesson

HairThere is nothing new under the Sun and there is nothing new in the idea of not washing you hair for a long time of period being good in many ways. Although it is almost scary and hard to put in action give it a second thought.

I know it is a women’s topic but if you are a male reader don’t stop here. You actually might be a key figure!

My mother’s Boss was a lady in her fifties and she had not washed her hair for years. Yes, for years!

She and her husband were struggling to have a baby for over a decade (they finally got a son) and it triggered them to practice all sorts of healthy lifestyles. Eliminating the use of shampoos that contain chemicals was one on that list. She did not trust even natural ones. So she ended up with not washing her hair at all.

I swear; her hair was long, beautiful and rich like I’ve never seen before on any other woman.

Drinking Water For Acne

Drinking Water For AcneDoes drinking water help with acne? First of all let’s take a look at the benefits of drinking water and what causes acne:

Water helps by flushing out toxins in your stomach, which helps liver do its job efficiently.

Causes of Acne.

Acne occurs when small canals called follicles get blocked hence stopping the sebum gland from carrying dead cells past the follicles to the surface of the skin.

Organic Skin Care, How To Get That Glow In 10 Easy Steps

Organic Skin CareHaving beautiful healthy glowing skin really isn’t as difficult as one may think. Many women spend all their time and energy on “fixing” their damaged skin and will pay any amount of money to do so. The first thing that comes to my mind in response to this approach is why would anyone want to constantly “fix” anything? I mean if you had to take your car to the shop every day for repairs, doesn’t that tell you that there is something very wrong with it? I would think that eventually you would want to send that car straight off a cliff. I would. The point being that there has got to be something more underlying that you are doing or not doing to cause that car to constantly need fixing. Well it is no different when it comes to your skin.

So the first thing I would like to suggest on the subject of organic skin care is that you put an end to this fix, fix, fix approach and instead realize there is a better way to go about this. However, you will need to
