Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. It afflicts up to 50 million Americans each year, including approximately 85 percent of the teen population, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. The unsightly pimples, nodules, cysts and scars that may accompany an acne breakout usually don't qualify as a serious health issue, but they can cause significant emotional and psychological distress. Many myths surround acne, including the idea that some foods can cause it.
When you were little, you may have thought it was funny when you stayed in the bathtub too long and noticed that your fingers were wrinkled. Well, now that you're grown, if you notice wrinkles on your face, it's not so funny anymore. Wrinkles are just a natural part of aging, but that doesn't mean that women have to accept them without a fight.
Wrinkles become more prevalent with age as the skin thins and is less elastic. Cosmetic procedures like face lifts are extreme options that many women prefer to avoid. Your habits and beauty routines affect the appearance of your skin, including wrinkles. Exposure to the sun and smoking are two habits that can cause wrinkles. Taking care of your skin and your body may help reduce or slow the appearance of wrinkles. While starting early in life with healthy habits is most effective, making changes in your skin care routine later in life may also slow wrinkle development.
Individuals who suffer from acne don't only have to worry about their blemishes, but also the scars blemishes may leave behind. If past acne struggles have left you with skin that isn't as smooth as you would like, you might be able to remedy this problem. Select a scar healing method that works to eradicate heartbreaking acne reminders.
The tender tissue below your eyelids is a common area for fluids to collect. Because the skin in this area is extremely thin, fluid retention is more readily apparent. This may happen for a variety of reasons, including allergies, crying, excess sodium levels in your body, certain illnesses, medications and hereditary factors. Even your sleep positions can contribute to fluid retention in your under eye area. Natural methods to reduce the puffiness include a combination of topical treatments and lifestyle changes.
If you spend a lot of time outdoors, use a sunscreen that will protect your skin from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. However, if you happen to venture out without protection, chances are you may return with a sunburn. This painfully red inflammation of the skin can also cause blisters, chills and even fever. Your skin may also become dry and itchy, according to the University of Rochester Medical Center. Stop the itch with over-the-counter topical creams and medications.
When you wake-up looking like a raccoon, ordinary foundation may not be enough to hide your dark under eye circles. Excess fluid build-up in the area under the eyes, certain illnesses and medications, sleep habits and hereditary factors, are all contributing factors to the development of dark under eye circles. If dark under eye circles are a problem for you, you may want to consider using a makeup concealer to hide them.
Contrary to certain myths, acne is not caused by eating chocolate or drinking sodas. Acne is caused by the production of oil by skin glands. The oil is called sebum and it can be produced in excess by hormones. The hormones that cause the physical changes of puberty are the hormones that affect the skin glands, which are called the sebaceous glands. Excess oil, along with dead skin cells, can plug the openings in the skin through which the hair shafts protrude, resulting in acne.
Many moms turn to cosmetics when they want to amp up their natural beauty a bit; however, in some cases, these cosmetics may do more harm than good. While some women can pile on cosmetics to their heart's content without feeling any ill-effects, others experience allergic reactions to these beauty aids. If you find that your most recent experiment with cosmetics has left your skin a little irritated, it is quite possible that you, like many, suffer from a cosmetic allergy and may need to exercise a little more care when selecting your cosmetics in the future.
