The Role of Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Le 20 février 2017, 05:24 dans Humeurs 0

You have probably heard a lot about AHAs, or alpha hydroxy acids, lately. AHAs often are found in creams and cleansers to help normalize cell renewal by loosening the dead cells of the skin.

 

As skin gets older or becomes damage by the sun. Most of the benefit is in exfoliation, or the removal of dead skin cells, which exposes newer skin cells and gives skin a younger healthier looking appearance. On average, the skin takes 28 days to 40 days to renew itself.

 

In mature skin, the cell renewal and exfoliation processes diminish and dead skin cells tend to accumulate, making skin appear and feel rough, dry and damaged. AHAs also help increase the skin's moisture retention, keeping the skin feeling soft and smooth.

 

Studies have shown the benefits of AHAs in treating sun damaged skin by helping to reverse some of the negative effects caused by the sun on skin collagen and elastin fibers.

 

Discuss the benefits of alpha hydroxy acids in your homecare with your dermatologist or skincare specialist.

Le 4 janvier 2017, 07:47 dans Humeurs 0

Everyday you see people with all color and style of hair. But did you know that you have a hair type? Yes! Not all hair has been created the same.

 

Lets start with the basic structure of hair:

 

1)Hair grows from the follicle, which is long and bulbous. If you were to pull out a strand of hair you would see the bulge at the tip of the hair. The cells at the base of the follicle divide rapidly and is where you get your hair growth.

 

2)Each strand of hair consists of three layers, the first being the innermost layer called the medulla. This is only present though in thick hair though virtual server.

 

3)The middle layer is known as the cortex. This layer provides the strength, color and texture of your hair.

 

4)The outer most layer is called the cuticle and this is what protects the cortex. It is completely colorless.

 

5)The entire strand of hair is made up of a protein called keratin. And that is hair!

 

There are 2 basic kinds of hair:

 

1)Terminal hair is the hair that grows thick and long and is found on the head, armpits, pubic hair face and chest. (Face and chest on men)

 

2)Vellus hair is soft short hair that you will find over the rest of your body.

 

The type of hair you have seems to have to do with geography Honorary Degree.

 

1)If you are of Asian descent, then the hair strands are round and thicker than all other types of hair. With the exception of the red head who has the thickest hair of all.

 

2)If you are of European descent with blonde or dark hair, then your hair strands are thinner. The strands are round to oval shaped.

 

3)If you are of African descent, then the hair strands are flat and that is the reason for the frizziness and curl.

 

It's interesting to see when you get a mix of Asian genes with African genes or Caucasian with African. I am a white girl with blonde, curly frizzy hair. My parents came from Holland where there is a high concentration of people with African descent. So it's not hard to see where I got my hair type, which I personally love.

 

So you can now figure out why your hair is the way it is. You just need to do a bit of research into your family tree and there you'll have it Storage Rack.

Le 5 décembre 2016, 05:36 dans Humeurs 0

Many of us have heard about the latest trend in self-tanning, which comes in the form of a moist towelette, called a Tan Towel. How exactly does it work? It's actually very simple. A towelette, similar to a baby wipe, is impregnated with dihydroxyacetone Nursing Programme  , also known as DHA.

 

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, DHA is the safest, most effective ingredient in sunless tanning. As a colorless chemical derived from glycerin, it interacts with amino acids in dead skin cells to produce a brown color change. The resulting color change usually lasts anywhere from five to seven days, depending upon individual skin chemistry.

 

A Tan Towel self tanning towelette can be applied to clean, dry skin to produce an even, natural looking color which will develop in approximately 3-4 hours. It is generally not recommended to apply moisturizers after a Tan Towel application, since it could potentially interfere with the tanning process. One of the many benefits of tanning towels is that they dry within seconds, and tend to be nearly odorless, which allows for you to get dressed right away.

 

Tanning towelettes such as Tan Towel do not contain any added dyes or stains, and thus will not produce orange color or stain clothing the way many messy self tanning lotions, creams, or sprays can. Depending upon the actual brand, most tans will last anywhere from 3-5 days ultraformer.

 

Tanning towels can also be used several days in a row to achieve a deeper level of color. However, it is important to note that although you can go into the sun after applying a Tan Towel, it is not going to protect you from the sun's harmful rays.

 

If you are a self tanning enthusiast and you have not yet tried Tan Towels, you are missing out on one of the simplest, cleanest, safest ways to achieve a healthy, natural looking self tan! For more information on Tan Towels, you can visit http://www.sensationalskin.net/
