Acne II

More on how to prevent and fight acne.

Wash your face
Wash your makeup off thoroughly every night. Use a mild soap twice a day and make sure you rinse the soap entirely off your face.

Natural look
Use less makeup

Blame it on the Pill
If you are on the birth control pill and have an acne problem, discuss with your doctor.

Leave them alone
Do not squeeze pimples or whiteheads. You may cause infection if you squeeze your pimples. Pimples are inflammations. You cannot do anything to make it go away faster. In the meantime, whiteheads are noninflammed plugged pore. When you squeeze them, the wall of the pore could break and the contents could leak out into the skin and cause pimples.

When to squeeze
Although most pimples are best left alone, a pimple with a little central yellow pus head in it can be gently squeezed. It will heal quicker once the pus is out.

Attack blackheads
A blackhead is a very blocked pore. You can get rid of it by squeezing. Blackhead will not cause pimples.

Acne I

Acne may be the scourge of the adolescent years, but it can follow some people into middle age and beyond. Acne is really a catchall term for a variety of symptoms such as pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. It is a condition where the pores of the skin become clogged and the person gets inflamed and noninflamed lesions.

What causes acne? Heredity - at least for the most part. It tends to run in the family. Stress, sun exposure, seasonal changes and climate can precipitate and acne attack.

Acne is classified in four grades, the first being a mild bout with a few whiteheads and blackheads, The fourth and most serious grade consists of many whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, nodules and cysts. Grade four acne is often accompanied by severe inflammation that becomes red or purple. And it is a sign that you should see a dermatologist. Severe acne can result in permanent scarring if it is not treated properly.

Here are some blemish-free advices.

Change your makeup
In adult, makeup is the major factor in acne outbreaks. Oil based makeup is the problem. The oil is usually a derivative of fatty acids that are more potent than your own fatty acids. Use a non oil based makeup if you are prone to acne.

Read the labels
Cosmetic products that contain lanolins, isopropyl myristate, sodium lauryl sulfate, laureth-4 and D & C red dyes should be avoided. Like oil, these ingredients are too rich for the skin.

Ingrown hair

Mr Tweezers is about the only way to get rid of the ingrown hair, but there are ways to make him stay gone:

Pluck him out
Apply a warm, damp compress for a couple of minutes to soften the skin then sterilize a needle or tweezers and pluck him out. Follow with an antiseptic or rubbing alcohol.

Bring it to the surface
If you cannot see the ingrown hair, treat it with the compress until you can see a hair lurking there.

Think about growing a beard
The curlier your hair is the more likely you are to get ingrown hairs. If it is a real problem, consider growing a beard.

Prepare for shaving
Wash your face thoroughly with soap and water for 2 minutes, rinse well and apply shaving cream or gel. Leave it on for 2 minutes to further soften the hair before shaving.

Electric razor
Use an electric razor.

Single track razor
Uuse a single track razor and settle for a shave that is not as close. Double track razors are meant for more trouble.

Train your whiskers
Train it to grow out straight by shaving in two directions, down on the face and up on the neck. Do not shave in all kinds of different direction or back and forth.

Aftershave special
Use a creamy aftershave lotion, not the typical alcohol loaded aftershave splash. It is soothing and moisturized the hair.

Prevent infection
Benzoyl perioxide solution has some antibiotic effect and can be used as an aftershave to cut down the amount of bacteria.

Shave down
For ladies, shave down from knee to ankle to avoid ingrown hairs.

When something rubs you the wrong way, and leaves a rash, there are several things you can do:

Get on the natural fiber
Switch to 100 percent cotton, the problem will clear up.

Wash before you wear
Wash any new exercise clothes before you wear them. Washing softens the fabrics enough to lessen the abrasion.

Wrap it up
Overweight and those who have big thighs will likely to face this problems. Using elastic bandages around the portion of legs that rub may help. Be sure the elastic bandage is secure so it does not move across the skin.

Keep it tight
A pair of the electric coloured, stretchy-fabric athletic tights or cycling shorts may be ideal to.

Put cotton
Wear cotton undies to separate the fabric from your delicate skin.

Use lubricant
Petroleum jelly between your thighs, around your toes, under your arms, anywhere you chafe, will act as lubricant and glide the rubbing skin against itself.

Powder power
Talcum powder helps the skin slip past other skin without catching and rubbing.

Simply block the rub with an adhesive bandage.

Switch sport
If you have sore spots from walking, try the stationary bicycle. Try a virtually chafe free sport if you have chafing problem.

Sufferers of bruxism sink their upper teeth into their lower teeth, gritting and grinding. Though it may result from stress, a mess of things can result from bruxism. It causes worn down teeth, headaches and sore necks and backs. A condition known as temporomandibular joint syndrome is also caused by bruxism. The following remedies may help.

Lips together, teeth apart
Your teeth should touch only when you are chewing food or swallowing. Therefore practice keeping your teeth apart, it will reduce the urge to clench or grind.

Crunch an apple
If you tend to grind at night, tucker out the jaw by munching on an apple or raw carrots before retiring.

Apply heat to your jaws
Fold up a washcloth, run hot water over it, wring it out and apply it against the sides of your face. Apply it as often and as long as you can as this will help relaxing the clenching muscles.

A mouth guard
There are mouth guards that you can put in hot water and then pop into your mouth and bite down on for a better fit. Mouth guard can be used temporarily to guard against night time chomping.

Calm down
Experts agree that bruxism is most often related to stress. Therefore, the best thing to do is to avoid caffeine and refined cabohydrates such as candies and pastries; take some warm baths, ease up on yourself and learn good general relaxation techniques.

The way you treat a cut can determine what kind of scar, if any that may develop. The way you care for that scar can determine too, how fast and to what extent it will fade.

Avoid getting cuts
Every time the skin gets cut, it scars. So protecting your skin with gloves, long pants, long sleeves whenever working around thorny, sharp, or jagged objects are necessary to avoid cuts.

Heal it properly
A wound that heals quickly and neatly is less likely to develop a scar. Therefore, clean all your cuts and scrapes properly and keep the would slightly moist with antibiotic ointment.

Do not pick at scabs
Picking scabs off a healing would could increase your chances of leaving behind a visible scar.

Close gaps
If you get cut and it is large enough, go to a doctor for stiches. But if it is small and you are concerned about scarring, use a butterfly bandage. Use it after the wound is thoroughly cleaned.

Well balanced diet
Protein and vitamin obtained by eating a good, well balanced diet help to heal right.

Treat scar with gentleness
Sweat glands, oil glands and hair glands are all destroyed by a scar. Scar due to a third degree burn should be lubricated with a good skin cream to protect them from abrasions.

Clean scars gently
One common source of abrasions to tender scars is a washcloth in the hands of an overzealous washer. So, wash gently.

Cover it with sunblock
Scars have less pigment. Cover all scars with a strong sunscreen whenever you head outside on a sunny day.

Do not be overly alarmed
Fresh scars are often noticeable but they will fade over time all by themselves.

It hurts when you smile or frown or eat or drink, when you clench or unclench your jaw, when you move your head in any direction. It even hurts when you breathe because cold air rushes into your mouth, over the tender tooth!

While waiting to see your dentist, the following are tips on how to stop the pain.

Rinse your toothache
Take a mouthful of water (at body temperature) and rinse vigorously. If the ache is caused by trapped food, a thorough rinse may dislodge the problem.

Floss gently
If the above does not work, floss gently.

Numb the pain
Hold a swig of whiskey over the painful tooth. The gum will absorb some of the alcohol and that will numb the pain. Spit out the rest.

Rinse with salty water
After each meal and at bedtime, stir one teaspoon of salt into an 8 ounce glass of water (at body temperature). Roll it around your mouth and spit.

Try a hand massage
Rub an ice cube into the V-shaped area where the bones of the thumb and forefinger meet. Gently push the ice over the area for 5 to 7 minutes. Research shows that this procedure works by sending rubbing impulses along the nerve pathways that the toothache pain would normally travel on.

Oil up with oil of cloves
Drop a little directly onto the tooth, dab a little on a cotton ball and pack the elixir next to the ache.

Do not bite
If it is caused by a blow to the tooth, try not to use that area when you eat.

Suck on some ice
Put ice on the aching tooth or the nearest cheek for 15 minutes intervals at least three or four times a day.

Keep your mouth shut
If cold air moving past the tooth is a problem, just shut off the flow.

Keep your mouth open
Some toothache happen when a person's bite is not quite right. Thus avoid shutting your mouth as much as possible.

Take an aspirin every 4 to 6 hours as required.

Stay cool
Keep heat away from your aching cheek.
