How a Dead Sea Mud Mask Can Help Your Skin

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

We’re always on the look out for ways to increase our skin’s health, and also to look a little younger in the process, and that search has led many people towards the Middle East, and a rather large body of water called the Dead Sea.

You might have seen pictures of this on the TV or in magazines, as it is a famous spot to visit. This is where you can float on your back and gaze up at the sky, totally supported by the water, whether you can swim or not. There is nothing mystical or strange about this, and it is all about location, location, location.

The Dead Sea is situated between Israel and Jordan, and its at the lowest sea level anywhere else on earth. The mountains which are around the water also add to the equation, and this means that the mud and silt which accumulates in the water benefits from the elements. The water and mud is rich in magnesium, sodium, and potassium in particular, and the high salt content is what makes people float!

In the search for another beauty solution, the mud from the Dead Sea is now used in a variety of different products, and the main one is the Dead Sea mud mask.

You basically use this the same as any other mask, however removing it can be a little trickier, and will require use of the mud bar that usually comes as part of the purchase. The benefits do go further than a regular face mask however, and there are countless ways in which using a Dead Sea mud mask can help your skin overall.

Let’s check out a few of them.

Great For Psoriasis Improvement
You’ll see many people floating in the Dead Sea because they have psoriasis and the high salt content, as well as the other vitamins and minerals contained within the water, can help to reduce inflammation and pain associated with the condition. Using a mud mask can do exactly the same, if you have the condition on your facial skin.

Skin Impurities Are Reduced
Anyone with dry skin will find a great improvement by using a Dead Sea mud mask. The impurities are drawn out of the skin by the mud and minerals, and then when you wash the mask off, they are washed off at the same time. Dead skin can also be waved goodbye to, and the salt and magnesium in the mask helps to create a strong barrier between the environment and your skin. Overall, you’ll notice healthier skin left behind.

A Good Acne Treatment
The mud from the Dead Sea has antimicrobial properties, which works to wave goodbye to certain types of bacteria which can live on the surface of the skin. Acne can be caused by certain strains of these bacteria and a build up can cause a breakout. By using regular Dead Sea mud masks, many sufferers have noticed a reduction in breakouts, and elimination over time.

A Great Natural Exfoliator
We mentioned that Dead Sea mud masks are good for those with dry skin, but overall these are great for regular but gentle exfoliation. There is no need for rubbing the skin with sometimes harsh exfoliating beads, as the mud works its magic without any rigorous action required. The smoother canvas that is left behind will also be free of any rough patches.

These are the main skin-related benefits to using Dead Sea mud masks, but there is a word of warning that needs to be thrown in here. You need to source out the best mask to get the best results. The market is flooded with products, and some of these are substandard to say the best. They might state that they contain mud from the Dead Sea, but how can you be sure this is the case? Doing your research ahead of time is the only way to ensure that you’re getting pure and quality products.

It’s certainly worth paying a little bit more for a Dead Sea mud mask, because the benefits are so advantageous. Yes, you should shop around and find bargains wherever you can, but always remember to read reviews and testimonials, in order to find the highest quality results before you part with any money.

How to Use a Dead Sea Mud Mask
Using a mud mask is exactly the same as using any other facial mask, but how long you leave it on totally depends on your skin’s condition, as well as the instructions on the packet. Remember to avoid the eye area, and to spread the mud onto your skin with the spatula included in your purchase. This will avoid transferring any bacteria from your fingers onto your skin, which would then find its way into your pores. Also remember to apply the mud in an even, thin layer. You don’t need to cake this on, little is certainly more than enough here.

You should leave the mask on for between 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the instructions on the pack, and how your skin is. If your skin is very dry and needs some serious attention, leave it on longer than if it was a regular maintenance treatment you do at home.

When it comes to removing your mask, each product has a slightly different method, but your purchase will usually come with a removal tool, such as a mud bar. You should then massage your skin afterwards, to ensure you get all of the mud’s oily remnants and their benefits. Cleanse to finish, and you’re done.

Dead Sea mud masks are certainly more than a regular beauty craze. Perhaps it’s time you found your own ideal product and grabbed these benefits for yourself.

Advanced Techniques to Get Rid of Acne

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Acne is the most dreaded skin condition of women and men alike. It steals your confidence and makes you feel ugly. A simple breakout can certainly ruin your day. But what if you have been dealing with severe acne for the longest of time and you finally wish to do something about it? Well, you should! After all, severe acne may cause permanent scarring which may ruin your gorgeous looking skin for life!

Before, people think that acne happens only to teenage girls. But as years go by, we have come to discover the fact that acne excuses no one. It can happen to you, no matter what your age is. In fact, research shows that even American women in their 20s and 30s suffer from severe acne.

Understanding Cystic Acne
When we hear about acne, we often attribute the solution to lifestyle changes, a change in your lifestyle or maybe the use of a low dose antibiotic. If you have been eating healthy, sleeping early, practicing proper hygiene, and taking antibiotics but to no avail, then it means that you are dealing with a severe acne condition which most people refer to as cystic acne.

If you are dealing with cystic acne, here are some of the symptoms to watch out for:

  • Large, red and painful breakouts on different parts of your body (face, upper arms, shoulders, thighs, and chest)
  • Raised, red bumps
  • Lesions underneath the skin
  • Breakouts that produces pustules, papules, nodules, and cysts
  • Advanced Acne Treatments
    If you have been experiencing the symptoms mentioned above, then it means that you are dealing with a severe form of acne which requires advanced treatments. With that in mind, below are some of the different advanced technique to get rid of acne:

    Diamond Peel
    Peel treatments have become the go-to treatments for severe acne simply because these work! Aside from the fact that this is a painless and less invasive way of managing acne, it also minimizes possible scarring in the long run.

    Like most peels, it works by removing the layer of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. It uses an instrument that has an abrasive diamond tip which gently loosens the dirt, debris and dead skin cells from the skin. Benefits of diamond peel treatment include improved collagen production, enhanced skin condition, and can also facilitate blackhead and whitehead removal.

    It is recommended that you undergo multiple sessions, but you can already notice amazing results after the first session. However, this treatment is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women. It may also increase your risk of skin itchiness, dryness, and sensitivity to the sun.

    Isotretinoin
    This is a type of drug that is used in treating severe cases of acne. This might be prescribed to you by your doctor if your acne did not improve even after you have already taken antibiotics.

    This vitamin-A derived drug manages acne by decreasing skin inflammation and regulating the oil production in your skin. This is a long-term treatment which must be taken for 15 to 20 weeks.

    However, this medication may cause birth defects and that it is why it is also not recommended to be taken by pregnant and lactating women. Women who also plan to take this medication are also advised to use birth control before, during and after a month of taking this treatment.

    Blue Light Therapy
    This is an FDA-approved acne treatment that uses high-intensity blue light which can kill 99% of the acne-causing bacteria on the skin.

    The treatment usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes and is considered to be pain-free. Just like the peel treatment, it would require many sessions of this treatment before you can completely get rid of acne.

    Side effects of this type of therapy may include stinging, and burning sensation as well as swelling and redness of the skin.

    Cortisone Injections
    If you are looking for a fast way on how you can get rid of acne, injections are the best way to go. But unlike most of the treatments found I this article, this one is invasive, and you may feel a bit of discomfort and pain during administration.

    The injection works by delivering cortisone, an anti-inflammatory agent, directly to the pimple. After a while, you can already feel the inflammation subsiding. As a result, the development of acne scars is also minimized.

    Microdermabrasion
    This type of treatment is becoming popular for managing acne because it is simple, fast, painless and has no downtime. It works by gently exfoliating the skin’s surface, unclogging the pores and clearing up acne.

    The procedure uses a fine abrasive tip that delivers a vacuum suction into the skin which can unclog the pores. The suction can stimulate blood circulation and lifts a small part of the skin to promote exfoliation.

    The treatment will only take about 60 minutes, and just like most acne treatments, this is repeatedly done with two to 4 weeks interval so you can achieve best results.

    Blemish Excision
    If your breakouts haven’t responded well to medications, then your doctor may recommend this option. Many people often refer to this procedure as acne surgery because it involves making a small incision in your skin. After that, the pus will be drained from the blemish.

    After clearing the pus from your pimple, you can expect your breakout to clear out and begin to heal after a while. However, this simple procedure may leave a small scar on your skin. Another thing to take note of is that this treatment does not prevent future breakout. It just addresses the existing one so you may still have to try out other treatments if you wish to avoid breakout in the future.

    So, there you go—the most advanced techniques to manage severe acne. Keep in mind, though, that some experts may recommend using a combination of any of the treatments mentioned above for you to be able to enjoy acne-free skin for good.

    How Your Habits Could Add Years to Your Age    

    Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

    How you will feel and look when you age is determined by the things that you do today. It is always important to note that prevention is key to looking good during your old age. But if you want to do that, you need to make healthier choices now.
     
    Oftentimes, we focus on the most obvious factors of aging: diet, skincare and lifestyle choices. But what we fail to understand is that there are small things that we do that can hasten the aging process of our skin. What are they?
     
    Crash dieting
    Are you prepping for a friend’s wedding (or your own wedding) or for the summer season? You would want to get rid of the excess fat that you have gained all throughout the winter season. As we all like to procrastinate, you may surely choose to go on a crash diet for a few weeks than to eat a balanced diet for a few months.
     
    But did you know that crash dieting is not good for both your health and skin? When you deprive your body of the nutrition it needs, your energy levels will be reduced, making you feel and look older. It may also mess up with focus and concentration and at the same time, lower your mood levels.
     
    With the sudden loss of weight that is associated with crash dieting, it is possible that your skin will exhibit wrinkles. The sudden loss of fats may also lead to skin sagging.
     
    Chewing gum
    Gum chewing may seem harmless, and it may be a great distraction from your boredom but did you know that too much gum chewing may promote the appearance of certain types of signs of aging?
     
    The act of chewing gum uses plenty of muscles and may also create marks on the skin around your lips, forming the unwanted sign of aging called perioral wrinkles. Other experts claim that it may also cause other unfavorable issues in the structure of your mouth so please, try to give up your gum chewing habit.
     
    Picking the skin
    Picking on our skin has become quite a habit for many people. That is understandable, especially if you are dealing with a highly annoying skin condition like acne or dry skin. But picking on your zit or any other blemish on your skin may do more harm than good.
     
    Picking on your zit may further exacerbate your skin’s condition as it may cause severe infection and worse, acne breakout. In addition to that, you are creating damage to your skin every time you pick or pull at it. This damage may lead to scarring, skin irritation and even, wrinkles.
     
    Rubbing your eyes
    Do you feel sleepy and tired all the time? Do you usually rub your eyes because it is itchy and dry? While rubbing your eyes may seem like a harmless thing to do, doing it can lead to a plethora of signs of aging.
     
    When you pull and tug at your eyes, there is a high tendency that you can break the tiny capillaries that surrounds the eyes. These broken capillaries will show under the skin surrounding the eye area which leads to one of the most common signs of aging-dark circles. In addition to that, the pulling and tugging of the skin may also cause wrinkles. That is a combination that you would never want to deal with.
     
    Overdoing your skincare routine
    Yes, taking good care of your skin means that you have to establish a good beauty routine. If you wish to protect your skin from aging signs, then you would surely be tempted to go beyond the tone-cleanse- moisturize and exfoliate routine.
        
    There is no harm in adding a few anti-aging serums and hydrating masks to the list but try not to go overboard with your skincare routine. Applying too much of the product won’t boost the product’s effectiveness. Instead, it may clog the pores which may result in an acne breakout. It may also promote blotchy complexion and skin dullness. In addition to that, using too many products may lead to skin dryness which may pave the way to the development of other types of aging.
     
    Stretching your skin when applying makeup
    Many people do this so how can this be harmless, right? For your information, this simple act is frowned upon in the beauty industry and is considered to be a big no-no.
     
    Avoid stretching your eyes so you can easily put on your eyeliner. Also, stop opening your lips too wide so that you can perfectly apply your lipstick. Too much stretching of your skin over time may lead to the formation of wrinkles.
     
    Taking long, Hot baths
    There is nothing more relaxing than having a long, hot bath after a long day at work. But no matter how relaxing it can be, you should avoid it. The heat may be relaxing to your muscles, but it can be extremely drying to your skin.
     
    Hot water can strip your skin of the natural oils that it has to stay healthy and moisturized. When you bathe with hot water for a long time, your skin will turn dry, and it may get itchy. That is why it is important you keep your showers cold and short.
     
    Pouting for selfies
    At this day and age, who hasn’t pouted for a selfie, right? While pouting can help make you look thinner and more gorgeous, it can be detrimental to your skin’s appearance in the long run.
     
    All that pouting and puckering can age the skin around your mouth so the next time you take a selfie, think of the possible wrinkle formation around your mouth before you pout.
     
    If you wish to look young and healthy even at your old age, then we recommend that you pay attention to your habits. Get rid of these bad habits that are adding years to your age, and you will surely be able to age as gracefully as possible.
     
    If you no longer like what you see in the mirror, then you need to evaluate your daily routines so you can determine what you are doing wrong.

    Benefits of Quality Night Creams

    Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

    Night creams can come with many benefits and they can represent a solution which cannot be matched in terms of what it can do for your skin. With many proven ingredients and an overnight action, the creams represent a practical way to improve the way your skin looks. Check out this page if you want to know what is the best night cream.

    Moisture
    One of the major benefits of night creams comes with added moisture. They represent a great solution when it comes to a healthier skin and the overnight action ensures your skin will not be dry. There are many ingredients which improved moisture absorption and this is where the best night creams offer up to date solutions.

    Practicality
    It is hard to argue the fact that night creams are very practical. They act while you sleep and this is why they can be among the leading options when it comes to better overall skin health, especially since they are easy to apply and since they will act while you rest and whole your skin recovers as well.

    Boost Collagen
    One of the many benefits of night creams comes with collagen production. Since your skin might start slowing-down the collagen creation process, a night cream can act to balance this process, ensuring that your skin is always as its optimum level for collagen production.

    Fights Wrinkles and Fine Lines
    Of course, a good night cream also needs to be able to fight wrinkles and fine lines. Even if it does not totally eliminate them, it can still act to diminish winkles while boosting the elasticity of the skin. This makes night creams a top choice among skincare products.

    Makes Skin Softer
    Another interesting benefit comes with skin texture. If your skin is properly hydrated, it also means that it will be softer as well. This is why it represents a great solution when it comes to better texture and the night cream thus proves to be the right choice if you want a skin which feels better as well.

    Fights Effects of Aging
    One of the main problems with skin is that it can quickly show the effects of aging. Due to the poorer collagen production or due to the poorer nutrient absorption, it can be among the solutions which are used when it comes to combating or limiting the effects of aging. This is why it is important to know that you can see great results when it comes to better skin health and in many cases, you will also get the opportunity to use the night cream to make this a reality.

    Renews Skin Cells
    Another interesting benefit of night creams comes with skin cell renewal. Since the skin restores during sleep, night creams can come and boost the natural cell renewal process. This process can slow down with age and this is where a good night cream can come to minimize the effect of the process and to allow a better process in which your skin renews skin cells in a much faster way or at an optimum rate.

    The Beauty of Fiber

    Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

    You might be asking yourself “what IS fiber? And why do I need to eat foods high in fiber?” Too often an overlooked and misunderstood nutrient, fiber contains important health benefits that helps with weight management, regulating physical energy levels and so much more. Eating a diet full of both soluble and insoluble fiber is important for the body in many ways, one of which is having radiant skin and hair.

    Before we get into the benefits, let’s learn a little more about fiber. It can be categorized into two kinds, soluble and insoluble. Insoluble doesn’t get absorbed by your body, and passes through, assisting in digestion along the way. Soluble fiber attracts water and slows down digestion, which aids in controlling blood sugar levels, amongst other things.

    Fiber to the (Skin) Rescue

    Clear it Up
    Now you may be thinking, what else can fiber do for me? It’s a great tool for supporting healthy skin and can slow down the aging process. The digestive system is the controller of many things in our lives. One major thing being breakouts. If you have a poor digestive system, you’re bound to get breakouts because your body isn’t absorbing the right nutrients, or getting rid of bad toxins. By adding fiber-rich foods to your diet, your digestive system will thank you and reward you with clearer skin!

    Glow, Glow, Glow
    Your body has to work harder to get rid of these bad toxins, and it can take a toll on your hormones. As we know, hormonal imbalances can contribute to skin issues too. Fueling your body with fiber will aid in the digestive process and support the balance of hormones in the body. While your body is filtering out the bad toxins, it will also create a skin “glow” in turn. What more could we ask for?

    Look Younger, Feel Younger
    When it comes to aging, nobody wants it to happen. Lucky for us, there’s an easy and helpful source for this. Yup you guessed it, fiber! It works alongside antioxidants and collagen to help slow the process and give your body time to absorb every bit of collagen that it can. Collagen provides skin strength and elasticity, so giving your body the time to absorb a large amount will result in less wrinkles and younger-looking skin.

    Help the Hair

    Strength
    We all want thick and luscious hair, and fiber can help us (try) to achieve this goal. If your hair is thinning or feeling weak, not having enough fiber in your diet could be the culprit. As we said before with the benefit of fiber and collagen working together, it becomes a similar story for fiber and other proteins. With more fiber, the absorption process is slowed down. This gives your body the time to fully absorb proteins, resulting in stronger hair follicles.

    Color
    In addition, fiber-rich food supports your body’s production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment in our bodies that provides the color to our hair, skin, and iris’. Meaning, the more melanin your body produces, the less gray hairs!

    What’s Next? How To Eat More Fiber

    Now that we’ve learned some of the benefits of fiber, it’s time to make sure we get more of it! There are easy ways to do this that don’t require taking supplements or seeing your doctor for help. By making a few small changes in your diet, you can bring major benefits to your life.

    Adding more greens, fruits, and whole grains to your diet is a smart start. Make a conscious effort to grab an apple midday, and substitute a salad for sandwich at lunch. If you miss the fullness of carbs at lunch, look for bread with high fiber and nutrient content, such as Food For Life’s Ezekiel low sodium loaf.

    Also opt for convenient snacks like popcorn rather than dessert after dinner. We recommend SkinnyPop’s healthy popcorn products which don’t use artificial sweeteners and go very light on natural sugars.

    If you’re looking for other tasty foods high in fiber, look no further. Delicious yet beneficial foods include:

    • raspberries
    • pears
    • avocados
    • bananas
    • whole wheat spaghetti
    • beans
    • oatmeal
    • split peas



    There’s an even more comprehensive list. If you’re looking for something that packs a nutrient and fiber punch, add chia seeds to your morning smoothie. There are plenty of ways to add fiber to your diet, and it doesn’t take a lot of digging to find out how! With all we know about fiber and what it can do for you, it’s worth adding a little extra to your daily routine.
