    Does Diet Really Affect Skin Health?

    Holistic health is a beautiful thing. Take care of your body, and it will take care of you! We see more and more people taking the time and effort to eat well, exercise, hydrate, and get eight hours a night.

    However, when it comes to skin health, simply eating a proper diet will not guarantee you healthy, beautiful skin. The mindset that drinking plenty of water and eating some blueberries will clear up your skin conditions is not only incorrect, but it can also be dangerous.

    Today, we will explore how diet can have a material impact on skin health, how to make positive dietary choices, and the truth behind the limitations of diet's impact on your skin.

    You're Seeing Skin Changes: When To Be Concerned

    Everyone's skin goes through some changes over the course of time. Some aging changes are subtle, some not so much.

    But how do you know what types of changes you should be concerned about? How do you know if you should reach for your Advanced Vitamin-C Brightening Serum or to put your dermatologist on speed dial?

    Aging Changes

    As your body ages, your skin does, too. That's just a fact of life. Collagen and elastin break down and don't regenerate as fast as they used to. Fine lines and wrinkles start to appear, and liver spots may make themselves known.

    How Does Lack of Sleep Affect Your Skin?

    Being out on the town with your friends, mixing it up, enjoying the company, the music, the lights. Or perhaps you weren't having such a great time. Maybe the baby was up most of the night with a cough and fever and just couldn't be consoled.

    Whatever your reasoning, it all boils down to you didn't sleep very well last night and the effects are showing. You have that groggy, heavy-headed, feet-dragging, day-is-never-going-to-end feeling.

    Winter Blues: What You Can Do To Feel Better

    'Tis the season. Literally. The fun and joyous, yet hectic and stressful, holidays are over and winter is really settling in for good. Daylight is in short supply, and blustery weather may make it difficult for you to get out and enjoy some quality outdoor time. Many people get the winter blues each season and find it difficult to combat the feeling of depression that often accompanies.

    So what can you do to relieve your winter blues?

    See the Light

    A lot of what is happening to your body and your mood has to do with the lack of daylight outside. It's dark when you leave for work, it's dark when you come home. That can disrupt your body's circadian rhythms and cause a drop in serotonin and vitamin D levels, which can lead to depressive

    Are Your Habits Making Your Skin Unhappy?

    As the largest organ in your body, your skin performs highly important roles for you like body thermoregulation and prevention of fluid loss. It protects you from the harmful effects of the sun's radiation and keeps you safe from harmful toxins. It's your first line of defense.

  9. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    With a name like that, this syndrome can be deceiving. Not everyone with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) actually has cysts on her ovaries.

    But PCOS affects many women in some pretty big ways.

    What Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?

    PCOS is a hormonal disorder common in women of reproductive age, so it can affect anyone from a teenager to a woman perimenopausal. In fact, it affects one in 10 women of childbearing age. It's caused by an imbalance in a woman's reproductive hormones, which creates problems in the ovaries, as well as elsewhere.

    The ovaries are the paired organs that create and store the egg that is released monthly as a part of a healthy menstrual cycle. In the case of PCOS, the egg may not develop as it should or it may not be released

    Wintertime can really take a big toll on your skin. From the dry air, the hot showers, and nipping wind, your skin tends to become dry. Our feet seem to be especially affected. It seems that you go to bed in the fall, and wake up two weeks later with ankles that are rough, cracked, and sometimes bleeding.

    So just how can you provide your feet with the best wintertime care? What can you do to take care of that difficult area of skin?

    Do You Have to Take Care of Your Feet?

    While we often take very good care of the skin on our face and neck, and most people do a decent job of caring for the skin on their arms and legs, many people tend to overlook that which they can't see: their feet, especially the bottoms.

    It seems the season of boots, especially, tends to give people the idea that their
