Follow the Skin Specialists For Fairer Skin

The skin is said to be the largest organ. It is also the most exposed. Skin cancer is usually associated with ultra violet rays from the sun, but other causes of skin cancer include chronic non-healing wounds, and moles that eventually grow and become cancerous. The best way to avoid this disease is limit exposure to sunlight and other UV emitting devices, use sun protection like lotions, protective clothing and hats, and take care of wounds and immediately seek medical treatment for suspicious non-healing wounds, lesions and swollen skin.

It is a good thing that cancerous area may be removed to avoid spreading. Radiation and chemotherapy may be required if the cancer has spread.

Dark circles under the eyes is a usual complaint among women. It gives an aging effect, and is usually associated with stress, which is just one of the causes.

Dark circles are actually blood vessels that becomes more visible under the skin, giving it a greenish or bluish effect. More blood flow and thinner, paler skin aggravate the appearance of dark circles. Anemia, fatigue, and dehydration are some of the common causes of the unwanted dark circles.

Eye crèmes contain ingredients that constricts blood vessels around the eyes, making the veins less visible. A more natural way to reduce dark circles is massaging with almond oil. It enhances blood circulation and relaxes the mind, getting rid of unnecessary stress.

Whitening products have been used to have fairer skin. But although some people have naturally fair skin, the underarm remain to be darker than the rest of the body. The darkness may be caused by any of these factors:

Under arm hair growth – shaving once a day is not enough, since you will notice that hair has grown a few millimeters at the end of the day.

Residue from products like soaps, deodorants and creams accumulate when the underarm is not totally cleansed. This may darken the skin, and form dark lines along the folds.

Plucking can leave some scars and marks that look dark from a distance.

Keep your hands clean, and keep it off your face. The hands come in contact with a lot of bacteria, and hand-to-face contact increases the chances of bacteria in the skin.

Do not squeeze or pop your blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. There are specialized cleansers and topical treatment available for these. Squeezing them will just irritate the skin more, and will expose it to infections.

Since most acne are caused by hormonal imbalances, you may want to avoid foods that stimulate hormone production like milk. There are also vitamins that helps reduce the occurrence of acne. It is best to consult your doctor on the recommended foods to take.

Prevention is the key. Although acne seems “natural” during puberty, there are ways to avoid its spread, saving you money on treatment, and giving you more confidence to face the world.

Always wash your face with the appropriate cleansing product, especially before going to bed. Also take regular baths and totally rinse your body, as soap residue may block your pores. Acne not only occur in the face, but in other parts of the body as well, like the back and chest.

Detoxify. Drink lots of water, exercise to stimulate sweating, eat nutritious and high-fiber foods. This will minimize the presence of acne-causing bacteria.
