Dermatologically Tested, Recommended and Approved - Terminologies Explained

Makeup is an important part of a woman's life. After all everybody have a right to look good, but is it acceptable at the cost of damaged skin. Most of the beauty products in the market are labelled as "Dermatologically Tested", "Dermatologically Recommended" or "Dermatologist Approved". After reading these scientific terms, especially reading a term with "dermatologist", we assume that it is well tested on skin by a team of doctors and will definitely not harm. Is this assumption correct ?

Dermatologically Tested / Recommended / Approved

These terms often confuse the end user. If you even just google these terms, you will find that these terms have no scientific ground. There are no fixed laws about the standards of the scientific study to be conducted before labeling a product as Dermatologically Tested. Even if a dermatologist has seen the list of ingredients and found that all ingredients are OK as per his/her knowledge, then the manufacturer can easily label the product as Dermatologically Approved or Recommended. These are no laws to govern the testing of these products, and no rule to test these products on a minimum number of users for a minimum period of time.
Note: Even if there are some laws and rules then they vary greatly from country to country. So if you are using an imported beauty product, then you don't know if complies with laws of your country. 
Some beauty products are even tested only o animal skins, while they are meant to be used on human skin as the final product. Lack of laws to test these products on humans saves a lot of money and increase the profits.
Most of the manufacturers spend more on advertisements rather than testing. The actual testing is done on customers skin. If it harms the skin, then actual dermatologists in the market earn by treating the infections and the sale decreases, and thus the manufacturer goes for some other product. But if the sale goes up then it means that testing on customers skin is successful and thus production is increased. So both way either beauty product manufacturer is earning or the dermatologist is earning.

Kind to skin, Mild for skin, Safe for skin

These are some other common terms written on beauty products just to please the customers, as they are equally delusional. There are no norms for usage of these terms as well.

How to choose a good beauty product ?

If you are really health conscious then never buy a beauty product just by getting impressed by its packaging. Instead take a look at the ingredients and compare those ingredients with other creams. If you are going to try a new cream, then make sure that the ingredients are not at very high concentration, so go for a milder version to test if its OK for your skin and then if it suits then gradually go for upper versions. 
Whenever you have some free time, take a look at the ingredients of the beauty products that you have got. Google those ingredients to find their pros and cons, and check if you have faced them. Every cream is not meant for everybody, as we have different skin types. So a product which suited your friend might not suit you. Be a little curious about the beauty products that you use and hopefully you will be an expert for your skin type. It is also possible the most of your beauty products will land into a dustbin and you will opt for some natural homemade beauty therapy.  Our looks should always be secondary, first is our health.
Note : A happy mood is the best ingredient to make you look better. So stay happy and stay healthy. 

How Skin Creams are being used to fool Customers

You must have seen advertisements of skin creams where they claim that it penetrates deep into your skin and provides nourishment with a number of active ingredients. Frankly saying, they are trying to fool you, and millions of consumers are successfully getting fooled. These cosmetic companies are utilizing the greed in the minds of people to look fairer. Some researches have found proofs that all claims made by such advertisements are false and are based on some past researches that are proved wrong with the help of modern technology.

How Skin Creams are being used to fool Customers

Cosmetic companies make some claims based on some previous researches that are now proved wrong. One of such claim is that skin cream penetrates deep into the skin.
During year 2012, scientists at the University of Bath conducted research on skin creams using confocal microscopy. The results of their research concluded that even the tiniest of nanoparticles in these skin creams can't penetrate the skin surface. However the cream can get deposited into creases in the skin. One of the jobs of our skin is to act as a barrier and it  works perfectly. Even the particles which are 100 times smaller than thickness of human hair can't penetrate the skin. The nano-particles in skin creams can't even penetrate the outer layer of skin known as stratum corneum.

None of the cosmetic skin creams can penetrate skin, but customers are fooled by advertisements in which celebrities say that "IT WORKS". Another misguiding thing in the packaging, which is intentionally made so good to look at that customer gets mesmerized with the photoshop images of a model getting fairer skin tones within a few weeks. Both of these things are enough to make the customer believe in the false claims.

As our team researched on this topic of skin penetration by skin creams, we found a question being asked about this research. If skin creams can't penetrate the skin, then how does Nicotine Patches work ? The answer to this question is simple. Nicotine is a molecule, not a nanoparticle, and it is much smaller.

No makeup or skin cream can penetrate skin, that is why it is recommended that you wash your face properly before going to bed, if you have used makeup in the day. It is to properly wash off the remainder creams from the surface of skin. If it is actually absorbed by the skin, then there is no way to wash it off.

How do celebrities start to glow after a few years of being a celebrity if the skin creams can't penetrate ?
There are various reasons behind that. The major reason is that celebrities come in front of camera after makeup. Second reason is that some of them go through surgical processes to be fairer. Third reason is that they use regular skin treatments that washes off minor impurities from skin. The fourth reason is the diet. If you eat balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables and also remain hydrated by drinking lots of water, then your skin will definitely be better after sometime.

The best way to provide nutrition to your skin is not by rubbing skin creams, but by eating natural nutrients through your mouth. Healthy diet is the best way to nourish you skin and whole body.

If cosmetic companies start adding chemicals in skin creams that can penetrate the skin, then these creams will no longer be a cosmetic product, they will be a medicine which can only be prescribed by a doctor.

How to be slim without Exercise and Dieting

Do you know that if you serve your food in Red plates then you will end up eating less compared to any other colored plate. Being slim is wish of every obese person. Reducing your weight can save you from lifestyle diseases like hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes. Sometimes it is harder to control your appetite or exercise regularly in a gym. In such case it become harder to be slim. But the good news in that there are ways to control your weight withing indulging in activities like exercise or dieting. However it seems impossible to do that but it can be done. Here we will list some of such methods that can help you in being slim.

How to be slim without Exercise and Dieting

Chew more and Eat slow: It helps you in extracting all nutrients out of your food. Well chewed food can be digested easily as well. When you chew more, you will automatically eat slow. After we start eating our brain waits for a certain time to say to that your stomach is full now, which is called feeling of satiation. When we eat slow due to more chewing, our brain signals feeling of satiation after eating lesser food than what we eat normally. It causes intake of lesser calories and getting proper nutrients due to more chewing.
Use Smaller Plates: If you take same amount of food in a small and a big plate, the food in bigger plate will look less. So if you use smaller plate the lesser amount of food in it will be assumed sufficient by you brain. This technique is a trick to fool you brain. The trick works best if somebody else is serving you food and know the motive behind it. But still you can give it a try knowingly. Bigger plate gives a feeling that the amount of food served in the plate is less, while reverse happens when you use a smaller plate.
No Distraction Policy: Only eat while you eat. Indulging in activities live watching TV or checking chats on phone while eating results in eating more. Any kind of distraction, even taking, can result in eating more than required. So try to avoid any kind of distraction.
Sleep Enough: Sleeping too much or too less can increase your weight. Lack of sleep can create imbalance in some hormones, some of them are linked to our appetite. If our sleeping time is disturbed then it can result in imbalance in feeling of satiation and we may end up eating more than required every time.
Eat more protein: If you increase the proportion of protein in your diet then it can reduce your weight. Eating more protein makes you feel full in eating less. If an average person increases his protein intake from 15 to 30 percent then it results in consumption of 400 less calories, which can make a person loose 11 pounds of weight in 3 months.
Eat Fiber Rich Food: Fiber keep you full for longer duration. Once you have eaten fiber rich food, you won't feel hungry for many hours.
Keep unhealthy food out of sight: Sometimes psychological tricks are also necessary. If food always remains in front of your sight, then most probably you will eat it even without hunger. If you don't store unhealthy food in your kitchen then you can avoid eating it too. You should eat for your stomach, not for your eyes.
Always keep a water bottle near your bed an on your office desk: It will remind you to drink water more often, which helps in removing toxins from body. Keeping a water bottle on your side table will reduce your visits to kitchen, which will also help you in not eating snacks that might be visible there. It is a common problem that people face while trying to reduce their weight. one more fact related to water is that you will eat less if you drink water just before having your meal. Avoiding calorie rich or no-calorie drinks with plain water is considered best for being slim.
Color of your plate: As we said in the beginning of this article that you will eat less in red colored plate. It is proved by some researchers. The logic behind this trick is that we automatically connect the red color with the STOP signal. So it is better to use red colored plates if you are eating unhealthy snacks.

What you should not do ?
  • Never Eat fast.
  • Don't use bigger plates. Use red colored plates while having snacks.
  • Never try to reduce your diet too much, as it can result in sudden weight loss. Sudden weight loss can result is some severe medical conditions.
  • Don't eat unless you feel hungry. Here you need to fight with your brain which is unnecessarily asking you to eat. It is not necessary to control your hunger, but to control your greed.
Note: Balanced diet and regular workout is the best way to stay fit and no other technique of staying fit can beat it.

Oily skin with blackheads, whiteheads or pimples are its major characteristics. Usually it affects teenagers. Only 3% men and 12% women are affected by this disease after 25 years of age. 
  • Bacterial Infection: There are large amount of bacteria surviving inside and outside our body. A number of them survive on our skin. Even after taking a bath, a number of them still remain on our body. However most of these bacteria are good bacteria that protect us from bad bacteria and act as first layer of defense for our body. But sometimes the bacteria residing on our skin pores cause infection and result in pimples. Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is a bacteria that resides harmlessly on our skin, but if it gets proper conditions to reproduce rapidly, it becomes a problem.
  • Abnormal sebaceous glands: These glands are present all over the skin except palm and sole. They secrete oil and wax to keep the skin healthy by proper oil and moisture in it. If these sebaceous glands are infected by bacteria then they swell up and appear as pimples.
  • Yeast Infection: A yeast named pityrosporum can enter the hair follicles and triggers itchy eruption that resembles acne. Usually it affects upper chest, shoulders, and upper back.
  • Allergy to some food: Sometimes allergy to some food item can also cause pimples. If pimples appear on your face days / hours after after eating a particular food item then it might be the cause of that allergy.
  • Side effect of some medication: Medicines that come in categories of Halogens, Antiepileptics, Antituberculous drugs and Antidepressants can cause acne / pimples. Some steroids can increase yeast proliferation within the hair follicle and cause pimples. It is not necessary for a drug to create same side effect on every person. Even the intensity of this side effect may differ. Some drugs that cause hormonal changes can cause pimples.

They are good to the body than the first two mention fats. So, if you are following a low diet program, you should not remove foods that give unsaturated fats from the plan. These fats do not contain bad cholesterol which is harmful to the body. On the other hand, bad fats like transfats and saturated are harmful to the body.

Change your lifestyle

Making a ninja or a monk from your dietary procedure is the first thing people get wrong when it comes down to loosing some pounds. The harder you set your goals, the harder they become to attain. Commit yourself to a healthy and attainable goal that is not physically weakening or health depriving.

Eat when you need to

Weight is easily gained, but hardly gotten rid of. Eating whenever you feel hungry is a bad mindset, which you need to refrain from if you are serious about losing weight. It is healthier to eat slighter portions of food, throughout the day, rather than eating three large meals, which will leave you full and lazy. Eating small portions will start off as a hard process, but you get used to it. This method will make you energetic throughout the day, and you will have the ability to burn off those calories.

Keep it simple

This does not mean that you should eat the plain old veggies day in day out. You can have a simple and effective diet plan, with a wide array of options which will not revert your efforts. With today’s weight conscious population, many food packaging companies have diversified to fill the rise in demand for healthy products, and they label their food accordingly.

Know your needs

The average male body requires about 3000 calories each day, to function properly. The average female body requires about 2000 to 2500 calories, and it is eating beyond these limits, which sees many people add on weight. There are dieticians and physicians, who will advise you on the calories you need to consume each day for your body type.

Balance your diet

Eating proteins, carbohydrates and minerals is taught to us from an early age. The rules do not change for any reason. When you diet on vegetables alone, your body becomes weak and prone to sickness. Protein from soya beans, regular beans, peas and oats is a healthy alternative to meat. Protein helps build muscle, pushing off the fat that you do not need.

Take a break

Sticking to a diet will see you following a restrictive eating habit, and you might find yourself craving for what you enjoy eating, from time to time. It is okay to treat your taste buds on occasion, as long as you are not going to let it go too far.

Natural Skin Care Tips for Men and Women (Benefits of Paraben Free Products)

Being the largest organ of the body, the skin is the natural outer layer that keeps the organs of our body secured and protected. What is very important for us is to try to keep up elasticity of the skin using natural beauty products which will make it stay smooth and soft,confronting our age. Handmade products like soaps, shampoos, lotions and other natural skin care products will help us in many ways to preserve our skin healthy and radiant.

Natural Skin Care

Handmade beauty products do not contain any chemicals,synthetic additives or toxins which can cause redness,irritability and blotches.Many people have allergies to chemicals usually found in most commercial products at the market.Such products containing chemicals massaged into the skin may get in our blood stream fast. On average a woman puts into use up to 120 chemicals when using various cosmetics and lotions every day.However,this can be avoided by consuming natural and healthy handmade products.Cosmetic products that are naturally rich in vitamins,minerals,and fatty acids actually take care of our skin and make it look young and soft.

Paraben Free Products

Natural skin care products are paraben-free. Scientists have labelled parabens as chemicals preservatives which are estrogenic and cause trouble for hormones to function normally.This can change the function of endocrine system in our body.In addition to this, recent studies have researched and said that parabens can increase the risk of cancer because they contain dioxane known to bring about cancer in the state of California. However, natural health and beauty products use natural preservatives, such as grapefruit seed extract, lemon, honey, bee propolis etc that will not harm our skin or body.

Impact on Environment

Synthetic and chemical skin care products have a negative influence on the environment .For example, soaps or lotions containing microbeades, can actually harm wildlife and nature around us. These microbeads represent a threat for ocean life since they finish up in local estuaries where they accumulate as micro-plastics. Therefore, bits of plastic can be mistaken for food by animals, which can block their digestive tracks in that way.In addition to this, fish and seabirds can also be affected since toxic additives found in plastics cause hormone problems. Accordingly, when ingredients are produced for natural skin care products,only few chemicals are put in our environment ( air and water). For that reason, natural beauty care products for skin are considered to be earth-friendly.

If you really want to stay healthy and keep young looking and beautiful skin, only choose natural cosmetic products. And if you are not sure what you are really want,do a little research online and try to find out which brands and products are considered to be the best according to your needs. Also,try to find product brands and lines that have been present on our market for many years, having loyal consumers. After all,only you know what kind of product you want to use for your skin. As a result,behave well towards yourself and choose the best products to do the same for you and it will do you and your skin good.

Benefits of Egg White as a Facial Mask

Do you want to try the magical effect of egg white facial mask? I highly recommend you to must try its glamorous glowing effect on your face. Egg is a great source of protein that helps in body nourishment. Its nutrients are also good in skin nourishment. Egg white is the clear liquid part of the egg. It contains albumin, mucoprotiens and globulin. Using it as facial mask tightens the pores and lift face skin temporarily. 

Some health benefits of using egg white as facial mask:

  1. It is good for oily skin. Egg white reduces oil in skin by attracting oil to come out and absorbed it afterwards. You can notice the immediate oil reduction right after the process.
  2. It prevents gathering dirt in pores because this mask makes the skin pores smaller. It therefore ends your agony on acne and pimples.
  3. It cleans skin deeply leaving it smooth and glowing.
  4. Putting egg white mask once a week will tighten your pores and skin. It will be a good technique in the suspension of the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on face.
  5. It helps to remove whiteheads and blackheads with a small amount of lemon juice. Whiteheads are blocked pores with oil and dirt. Egg whites also help to restore and nurture the skin.
  6. It is best in skin exfoliating because of its vitamin A content. 
  7. It amazingly whitens the face. At first, I didn’t believe on this but one day after using it for one month, my friends can’t help to compliment the result that is really visible on my face. It whitens the skin while enjoying its glowing effect.
  8. It can treat burns. My fireman friend told me that they were trained to apply white egg on skin in case of burn as first aid. It can save your skin and be like normal after the complete treatment. It sounds miracle but it is true.
I have already read a lot of testimonies about the benefits of this facial mask but I was not convinced until I have tried it. Yes, it is very messy to apply and a bit smelly but it is rewarding when the result is already visible. Doing this is not expensive as compare to commercialize facial mask and spa treatments but the results is nearly the same. Come to think of this, how much do you pay in temporary face lifting? Is expensive, right? But in making homemade egg white facial mask you can enjoy the same benefit without sacrificing the budget of the family. All you have to do is to get an egg in your fridge and do the treatment all by yourself. One thing more, one egg is too much for your face alone, your family member can also use it and get the same result as you. Being beautiful does not mean that you have to spend much money, almost all natural beauty products are in the kitchen.
