10 Tips to Prevent Acne

1. Keep your Face Clean: It is the first necessary requirement to wash off your face again and again with cold water whether your face is full of acne or not. Water has the resistant power to protect your skin by any kind of dust particles, oil that is the cause of acne. It also removes the dead cells present on your skin and extra oil from the surface of the skin. It is better to use warm water instead of hot and cold because warm water performs as a mild facial cleanser. Do no use harsh soap such as deodorant body soap that is the cause of irritation and hurt the inflamed skin. Always use the face wash made up of natural extracts.
2. Miniaturization of Skin: There are many acne products that contain some ingredients which are the cause of dryness of the skin so it becomes important to moisturize your face daily with a good moisturizer especially milk moisturizer. Moisturizer reaches in the deep cells of your skin and makes it smooth with the long lasting effects. It prevents your skin from peeling and dryness. Moisturizers are available for the oily, dry and combination skin.

3. Use an Over-the-Counter Acne Product: An over-the-counter acne product has some chemicals that are very essential for your skin like benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or lactic acid.  These chemicals help in the control of bacteria and make your skin dry. The amount should be used as per depend on the peeling or drying your skin possess. People with sensitive skin should read the caution.

4. Use Makeup Meanly: If you are doing the job then wash out your makeup at the end of the day you off from job. Otherwise, you should avoid wearing makeup during the breakouts. Choose the cosmetic products wisely and that should be strictly oil free without the addition of dyes and chemicals that are harmful and cause acne.

5. Be Aware of What you Put on your Hair: Using fragrances, oils, or gels on your hair, if they spread on your face in some circumstances then it will block the pores of your skin and thus it leads to the irritation. Using the gentle shampoo and conditioner will be the best. If you keep your hair longer, keep it pulled away from your face.

6. Keep your Hands off your Face: Forget the habit of propping and touching your face from your hands. Hands could anytime full of certain bacteria that get the inflammatory actions on your facial skin. Avoid picking and popping pimples with your fingers too. 

7. Stay Away from the Sun: The ultraviolet rays present in the sun can lead to the inflammation and redness. There should be time limitation while going in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2p.m. If you feel important to go outside in the sunlight then always remember to wear protective clothing like long-sleeved shirt, pants, and a broad-brimmed hat. Apply the sunscreen with SPF 30, 20 minutes before going outside.

Gluten And The Hidden Food Additives You Must Be Aware Of

Dear Pharmacist,

I heard your lecture on free “The Gluten Summit”  and was shocked to find out I take gluten every day in my medicine, and I’m a Celiac. Can you write more about this food additive? –P.M., Austin, Texas

Answer: Being gluten free myself (by choice), I am frustrated with you. If you were going to eat gluten by choice, you would’ve eating the stuffing right?! It’s hard to exercise the necessary self restraint to pass up pies, bagels, bread, and traditional pasta, and some of you have to because of  your condition. I wish pharmaceutical companies would post their sources for ingredients, but this isn’t required yet. You have to do the digging.

Medications are not always gluten free. It’s the hidden sources of gluten that present the biggest challenge for Celiacs and those with gluten sensitivity. No one can fully digest this protein so that makes us all technically “sensitive” to some degree. Gluten may be an “excipient” which is an inactive ingredient used to absorb water, allow for disintegration and release of the the ingredients and lubricate the mixture. These binders and fillers may be sourced from various ingredients. Here are my key points.

 Point #1: The word “starch” is questionable so call the manufacturer and ask if it came from wheat.  Maltodextran may be extracted from wheat, corn, potato or rice. You have to find out. Dextrimaltose may be from barley malt. Pregelatinized starch is another potential source of gluten depending on the source.  Dextrose is a sugar derived from corn, so it is gluten free. Sugar alcohols like xylitol are gluten free. Glycerin, lactose and cellulose are also gluten free. There are dozens more, so I’ve created a big list to help you check your vitamin labels and medications and learn what ingredients are gluten free, which are endocrine disruptors, which are derived from petroleum, and which come from bug juice, yes some do! I also posted a big list of gluten free medications. Click Here to Read

 Point #2: Even if  your medication and all the excipients are gluten free, makers have the ability to change the ingredient list without advertising this. You need to constantly check the label, or contact the manufacturer.

 Point #3: Let’s say you have a brand that is 100 percent gluten free, then one day, you switch to generic to save money. You may suddenly be ingesting gluten without realizing because the FDA does not require generic makers to match up the excipients, they only require them to match up the active ingredient (the drug portion).  I’m all for generics to save you money, I just want you to check the inactive ingredient list before switching. There are usually several generic makers of one brand drug, so don’t give up if the first generic maker uses gluten, keep investigating. Look at the “Patient Package Insert” or go online, if that doesn’t help, contact the manufacturer directly.

HEMP OIL & HEMP PRODUCTS


CBD Hemp Warehouse specializes in distributing Cannabidiol (CBD)Hemp related products and more traditional Hemp Nutritional Food products. Currently, many Americans are unaware of what CBD Cannabidiol is, but this is changing rapidly as media and doctors announce the remarkable effects CBD has on health. We recommend visiting our Video Library for videos featuring Dr. Oz and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

The seed of Cannabis sativa L. has been an important source of nutrition for thousands of years in Old World cultures. Technically a nut, hemp seed typically contains over 30% oil and about 25% protein, with considerable amounts of dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals. Hemp seed oil is over 80% in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), and is an exceptionally rich source of the two essential fatty acids (EFAs) linoleic acid (18:2 omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (18:3 omega-3). Hemp seed has been used to treat various disorders for thousands of years in traditional oriental medicine. Recent clinical trials have identified hemp seed oil as a functional food, and animal feeding studies demonstrate the long-standing utility of hemp seed as an important food resource.

A few facts about Hemp:

Hemp crop produces nearly four times as much raw fiber as an equivalent-sized tree plantation.
Trees take approximately 20 years to mature. Hemp takes 4 months.
Hemp fiber needs no pesticides and no herbicides because it grows too quickly for weeds  to compete.
Hemp paper does not need chlorine bleach, which pollutes rivers near wood-pulp paper mills.
Hemp paper is stronger, finer and longer-lasting than wood-based papers and has been used for bank notes and archival papers for many years.
The earliest-known woven fabric was apparently of Hemp, harvested  approximately 8,000-7,000 BC.

 

Why You Want to Consider Adding Cannabidiol CBD rich Hemp products to your diet?

Persuasive evidence abounds that Cannabidiol extract from theIndustrial Hemp plant, in the family of cannabinoids, known asCannabidiol, holds significant health benefits (http://medicalmarijuana.procon.org/view.answers.php?questionID=001656). Cannabidiol, or CBD when derived fromIndustrial Hemp stalk and seed, is now a legal product in the United States!

CBD offers few, if any, side effects as it is a natural, plant based compound. Combined into a variety of health and wellness-based products, CBD can now be part of one’s daily nutritional routine. Doctors (not just cannabis based doctors) may soon be telling their patients: “Exercise and get your CBD daily”! Source: Allan Badiner, author and http://www.realitysandwich.com/high_health_cbd_food_supply

If just a small percentage of what some research doctors and scientists are saying about Cannabinoids and the particular cannabinoid known as Cannabidiol (CBD) is true, we may potentially have an amazing a scientific breakthrough.  Cannabidiol, when extracted from the industrial hemp plant has shown extraordinary health and wellness benefits.  http://csglobe.com/high-on-health-cannabinoids-in-the-food-supply/ .

The US based National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health has a highly positive reference on CBD on their website.  http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/cannabis/healthprofessional/page4

Although there is little knowledge / public awareness of the benefits of CBD, we are doing our best to spread the word and educate the public by offering  a Question and Answer format so consumers may learn more quickly about the benefits of CBD. You are invited to join in the discussions.

Cannabidiol, CBD, if derived from Industrial Hemp stalk or seed is a legal product within the United States.  If you would like to see what CBD may do for you, please CLICK on the product Links within the pages.

The truth about female ejaculation

There are many theories about whether or female ejaculation occurs. Recent studies have shown that it does, and is completely natural. Read to find out more.

What is it?
Female ejaculation is the expulsion of fluid in a noticeable amount from the urethra of women during orgasm. It is estimated that between ten percent and forty percent of women are able to ejaculate.

What does it look like?
Female ejaculate can differ in appearance, texture and quantity. It can range from being a clear to a milky liquid, or from feeling watery to feeling sticky. Amounts can range from a teaspoon, to (in some extreme cases) a cup full.

What does female ejaculate consist of?
Ed Belzer, a professor at Dalhousie University found varying amounts of acid phosphotase in female ejaculate. It was previously believed that only males produced this chemical in the prostate gland.

Studies have also revealed consistent results showing reduced concentrations of urea and creatinine in female ejaculate, urines primary components.

Though it is not entirely clear what female ejaculate is made up of, researchers have concluded that it is not purely urine, and that it is not the odourless secretion of the Bartholin gland that helps lubricate the vaginal tract, but a combination of urine, acid phosphotase and other inconsistent chemicals.

These studies have also shown the existence of a prostate-like gland within females, previously thought to be non-existent.

How is female ejaculation achieved?
The percentages of women that do ejaculate do so during orgasm. Gynaecological studies have shown that most female ejaculation occurs during sexual stimulation of the 'G-spot'.

As the G-spot is stimulated, it swells and begins a fluid discharge through the urethra.

Clinical studies have also shown that the female response to G-spot stimulation is extremely similar to the male response to prostate stimulation. The first couple of seconds of stimulation introduces a strong urge to urinate, but is quickly replaced with noticeable sexual pleasure.
