Most of us use facial skin care products on a regular basis, and we use them to do more than just clean the skin on our faces. The best ones are designed for a specific skin type. They can help moisturize dry skin, reduce shine on oily skin, help fight acne, combat wrinkles and more. But we can get similar results with homemade skin treatments.
Many of us are skin conscious. We often want our skin to look young and healthy and wereally do something just to protect our skin from whatever possible harms there may be in ourenvironment. Well, our skin is our largest organ performing several functions. It primarilyprotects us against the invasion of foreign substances and it serves as the transfer point for therelease of toxins from our bodies, thus our skin is just worthy of protection and care.
Bad breath is when there is an unpleasant odor that usually comes from the mouth. When people exhale, the odor comes out. Not only is it a health issue, but it is also a social issue as well. People get turned off by those that have bad breath when they open their mouth.
Lets accept the fact: many of us are skin conscious. As much as possible, we wanted to havea fresh, good looking skin. However, many of us failed to recognize that simple steps are thebest ways to attain it. We just tend to ignore what is actually right or wrong for our skin. We tend to buy some beauty products that just worsen whatever skin imperfections we have as itturns out in the end. So, now is the time for change. We must do something to beat up allthose bothering skin conditions we have.

Stretch marks (also known as striae) are extremely common and affect a vast majority of women during their pregnancy. They appear as raised red, pink, purple or dark brown lines or streaks in the skin. In the beginning, stretch marks are quite visible but over a period of time they fade into flat, silvery lines.
Most people want flawless skin with complexions that are smooth, taut, and exude a dewy glow. Unfortunately, this is not always possible when your skins take a beating. Sometimes your appearance is affected by genetics, age, sun exposure, and unhealthy choices such as poor diet, too much alcohol, stress or harsh chemicals that can prematurely age you â€“ making you look older! One of the biggest culprits responsible for skin damage is long-term exposure to the sun, and most sun damage occurs before the age of 20. The harmful effects of spending too much time in the sun is due to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and this type of sun damage is known as photoaging. It speeds up the rate of aging of the skin and increases the risk for developing skin cancer.
Scars are a natural part of the healing process after injury. They are actually growths of collagen (protein) that form beneath the skin as a result of acne, wound, cut, burn, injury or surgery to the skin. Collagen consists of fibers that strengthen the layer of skin beneath the surface. When the skin is injured, the collagen that is produced becomes thicker.
Hair loss is also known as baldness or alopecia. Your hair grows in three distinct phases â€“ it grows, rests and falls out. During the growing phase about ninety percent of your hair grows and lasts for several years. Hair stops growing during the resting phase which lasts between two to three months. Finally, during the shedding phase, the hair falls out of the follicle and new hair begins to form.
While many of us may wish for long, luscious, healthy hair, we are not always that lucky. Growing your hair requires time, effort and patience! Often people who have dry, damaged or very thin, limp hair struggle to grow their hair. This may partly be due to a poor diet, underlying diseases, hormonal changes, certain medications, hair treatments such as bleaching, dyeing, tight braiding, blow drying, straightening or hot curlers.
Even the healthiest hair can begin to take the strain of daily beauty regimes, environmental toxicity, and poor modern day eating habits. It is important to note that the living cells that promote hair growth are hidden in the hair follicles of the scalp, and that the hair we see (the hair shaft) consist mostly of non-living keratin proteins.
