One thing that comes to your rescue is sunscreen. Sunscreen lotions and creams are available in different sizes. Sunscreens typically protected our skin while we are exposed to the sun. Along with the use of proper sunscreen protection, you also should stay away from the mid-day sun and take protective measures like wearing a hat, and dressing that completely cover your body.

There are not only sun screen lotions and creams there are also sunscreen glasses, which you find in your car, and office windows. They typically block out the harmful rays of sun. Tinted windows are a must for vehicles. Equally important are blinds, shades and curtains. You can find a company that comes up with products and services to protect you from the harmful effects of sunrays.

I will never recommend you to give up your life to sun. Spend time in the sun in the mornings and in the evenings. But always make it a must to use sunscreen lotions to protect not only your skin, but also your health. Many people think tanned skin cannot attract skin cancer. It is not true. Many people who have believed so now suffer the hardships the hardest way. Don’t go that way. There is no going back from the point you get your skin damaged. Make sure you take the precautions to protect yourself from the damages of harmful rays from the sun.

When the crowned tooth has a retained nerve in it, patient may experience some hot and cold sensitivity especially between the edge of the crown and the gum line. To minimize this tendency, dentist usually recommends brushing with toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. Pain that occurs during biting sometime result from crown that is set too high on the tooth. If this is the case, call the dentist so that he can easily fix this problem.

Aside from the sensitivity issues, there are also some slight drawbacks on having teeth crowns when the cement washes out from under the crown. When this happen, the crown become loose and it can allow bacteria to leak in and cause decay to the tooth that remains.

Sometimes crowns may also fall off. This may happen because of improper fit or lack of cement surrounding the crown. If this happens, clean the crown or replace the crown temporarily by using dental adhesive or temporary tooth cement and immediately contact the dentist as soon as possible.

But all of these can be prevented if the patient will refrain from chewing hard food or biting ice or other hard objects. Teeth grinding must be also avoided. Besides regular visits to the dentist and brushing twice daily, cleaning between teeth is vital with crowns. Floss or interdental cleaners are important tools to remove plaque from the crown area where the gum meets the tooth. Plaque in that area can cause dental decay and gum disease.

There are also some advantages and disadvantages that are specific to each type crowns. Tooth crown made from gold is the simplest and least complicated type of crown because the removal of tooth structure is very minimal leaving healthier tooth structure to remain. Fitting gold crowns to the area where the tooth and crown meet are also much easier. Gold crown is not hard and does not cause any wearing on opposing teeth even after several years. The only disadvantage of gold crown is that it does not look appealing or attractive when placed in front mouth.

Tooth crowns prepared and made from porcelain or new reinforced resin are said to be the most aesthetically satisfying because this material comes with different shades that can easily matched to the color of the surrounding teeth. However, porcelain crowns require the dentist to remove more tooth structure regardless whether the structure is healthy or not because porcelain needs a specific thickness to appear attractive. Porcelain crowns are more difficult to fit in between gums and the crown itself requiring higher level of dexterity from the dentist and crown fabricator. Gingival inflammation is the common drawback in porcelain crowns. Crowns made of all-porcelain can sometimes chip. If the chip is small, a composite resin can be used to repair the chip with the crown remaining in the patient’s mouth. If the chipping is extensive, the crown may need to be replaced.

If you are looking for a shampoo that is going to return your hair to its natural color or at least darken it to some degree then you need to have a very specific shampoo. Do not go for a shampoo that promises to bring back your natural hair color in one or two washed as this means that the shampoo contains a lot of dye and will do nothing for the condition of it. Most people want a shampoo that will gradually change the color so that it is not too noticeable or immediately obvious.

When our hair goes gray it is because the cells in our hair follicles called “Melanocytes”, stop producing pigment and the result is a transparent hair. The transparent hair against your healthier darker hair gives the appearance of Gray hair. In reality the hair is not Grey but transparent. When we reach this stage its because our hair is no longer as healthy as it use to be so we need to treat it in such a way that we replace what it has lost. Although we have mentioned the main cause of the hair going Gray it is also important to remember that the lack of nutrients such as B12 and Omegas 3’s are major contributors of hair going Gray.

So to treat your Grey hair you need to replace these 2 ingredients. B12 can be taken in tablet form but the Omega 3’s can be found in some shampoos. The way it works is that the Omega 3 rich shampoo penetrates deep into the hair follicle to deliver unprecedented nutrition to keep the hair follicle in its original color. The oil contained in the shampoo is known as the follicle awakener and has been used by many to help prevent the onset of gray hair. Every hair must have omega 3’s to grow properly.

There are products on the market that have these attributes so there is a solution to treating your Gray hair. Whether you want to get your hair color back or just look after your hair the way it is then you need the right shampoo. So make sure the shampoo you choose has these ingredients in them. Just because you have Gray hair doesn’t mean it shouldn’t look good.

Your skin in its healthiest state, like hair and nails, should have a natural sheen, a subtle glow. When your makeup is too matte, it ages the skin just as quickly as if it had too much shine! A subtle shine can add “pop” to the eye area, highlight cheekbones beautifully, and give the appearance of fuller lips instantly.

After painting faces for almost sixteen years, I have to say I love to see women of all ages and skin tones wearing a little something reflective on their face. The key word here is “little”. I’m not talking about going out and buying metallic makeup to wear to work everyday. No body glitter, frosty lipstick, or shimmering face powders are allowed! The kind of shine I love the best is a ‘satin’ finish. Often, there does not even appear to be an actual ‘sparkly particle’ in the product, but it glows and shows off the skin beautifully. Products with this ‘satin’ finish catch light and give life to your complexion!

A few rules to keep in mind:

  1. Create balance between your features by accenting only one or two of them with shine. For example: matte eye shadows with dewy lips, or satin-finish eye shadows with a traditional lipstick texture.
  2. If your skin is dry or flaky, shimmery makeup wouldn’t be the best for you. Stick to dewy, creamy textures instead. This will give your skin a very healthy glow. Try Nars Cream Shadows and Blushes in addition to Stila Convertible Color.
  3. If your skin is oily, look for creamy, slightly shimmery eye shadow colors that are smudge-proof. This will serve as a base color and help keep your powder shadows in place during the day ahead. Try Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Sticks and Stila Shadow Pots.

Remember, makeup is not permanent. It comes off! How lucky we are as women to have the ability to change the way we look so easily. If this all still seems a bit scary, a well-trained makeup artist can answer any questions and show you how to look your very best!

If you do not have the money to go to the dentist and have them perform several (sometimes only one, depending on how severe the case is) Tooth Whitening sessions, do not worry about it! You do not even have to go to Wal-Mart to purchase a Tooth Whitening kit. You will have to spend some money though, on whitening toothpaste (I would recommend Colgate Icy Blast 2 in 1 mouthwash toothpaste), mouthwash and floss.

You are probably thinking that this will not work, but just follow along the article and you can easily attain results if you follow the simple and easy instructions. You might have to have patience in order to attain whiter teeth this way (but I will say that it worked rather quickly for me).

All that you need to do is brush your teeth only once more than you already do everyday. For example, let us say that you brush your teeth only once a day only when you wake up in the mornings, brush your teeth before you go to bed as well (remember the whitening toothpaste). Also make sure that you add mouthwash to your routine, this is the main killer for yellow teeth and the creator of a brighter whiter smile. Just gargle for 30 seconds and spit it out! (The longer you gargle, the whiter your teeth will get though). There are some fun Tooth Whitening tips for you!

  1. Exfoliate – All the self-tanner in the world will do you no good if it attaches itself to dead skin that is about to come off your body! Use a loofah sponge in the bath the night before you self-tan to remove these dead skin cells.
  2. Moisturize – Applying a good moisturizer a few hours before you self tan is a great way to make sure your skin is ready to accept the self-tanner.
  3. Choose your clothes carefully – You should pick clothes that cover all the parts you do not wish to tan. Self-tanning nude is not recommended for newcomers, because the results can be unpredictable. Make sure you select tight fitting clothes so that the self-tanner cannot go under your sleeves. You should also choose dark colored clothes, since spray tanners will stain light clothes.
  4. Use gloves – Nobody looks good with orange palms, so when you spray tanner on your hands in order to tan your face, don a pair of latex gloves to prevent stains.
  5. If you are going to a tanning salon, follow the instructions! Self-tanning booths typically have a handout, so read up, and make sure you know what to do!
  6. BLOT – After applying your spray tan, you will need to blot your skin with a towel to catch any drips.
  7. Stand still – Standing still for about 30 seconds after a self-tanning booth application will ensure that your tan dries evenly. While it may take a lot longer to dry completely, the first minute or more is when you run a real risk of rubbing off the self-tanner before it has a chance to work.

It may be fashionable to be lightly tanned, but medical practitioners decry the concept of tanning itself. In fact, they state that a tan is a skin problem. To those who are desperate for bronzed skin, they suggest faking the tanned look by using commercially available tanning lotions and sprays. Most models and actors adopt this option, as they are very conscious of the harmful effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Premature aging, eye problems like cataracts, and skin cancer are some of the ill-effects of overexposure to the sun.

Doctors suggest limiting outdoor activities between 10 am and 4 pm. In addition, they recommend the use of beach wear with ultraviolet protection, broad-brimmed hats, sunscreen, and canopies. Sunglasses that offer maximum protection from the ultraviolet rays are also a must for beach-goers. Water-resistant sunscreens should be applied liberally a few minutes before going on to the beach, and reapplied every two hours when on the beach.

To conclude, there is a crucial need to create awareness among children and adolescents about the ill-effects of tanning. This is because surveys have shown that teenagers are most influenced by fashion trends, and prone to bask on beaches to develop a tan. Educational institutions and parents need to assume a proactive role to create awareness among children and adolescents. Teens and other avid tan fans should realize that it is not fashionable to be ill.

Here is a concise list of what you should avoid in skin care products. Think of these ingredients as the equivalent of cholesterol, saturated fat or ephedra in your diet. As a general rule, you should avoid any product that tingles, stings, itches or burns.

Alcohol: We have all heard many times that alcohol is bad for the skin. Unfortunately, it is still used extensively in skin care products. It contributes to dehydration, kills live cells, and alters the skin’s delicate biological balance.

Fragrance and coloring: Dermatologists strongly recommend avoiding products with added fragrance or dyes. These additives fail to provide any benefit other than to enhance the product’s appearance. However, when absorbed by the skin, fragrances and dyes cause irritation and may produce allergic reactions.

Botanicals: Not all “natural” ingredients are beneficial. Some commonly used plant extracts, such as menthol, peppermint and citrus oils, are powerful substances that are better kept away from your skin.

Bar soap: It is formed by waxy binders and harsh alkaline salts. These ingredients can clog your skin and leave behind harsh chemical residues that dull it or damage it. Liquid cleansers without soap additives are a better alternative.

Fatty acids and vegetable oils: Some fats commonly used as moisturizers form an oily barrier that clogs pores, traps bacteria and prevents the natural shedding of dead cells. Oil-free or light moisturizers are best for all skin types.

Radiesse is a dermal filler in the category

of non-surgical facial contouring fillers. Radiesse provides an immediate and longer-lasting result than many of its predecessors.

Radiesse is comprised of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. The advantage of this filler is its structural properties which help support the body’s natural collagen.

The length of the procedure typically runs 15 minutes to 40 minutes per session. A numbing cream is applied to patients receiving lip Radiesse injections beforehand to minimize the little in the way of pain during the procedure.

Most patients typically will not require a general or local anesthetic for this procedure.

Side effects can include swelling or redness. These will subside within 24 hours of the procedures completion. A benefit for Radiesse is the fact that it has been used world wide for over 4 years and thoroughly researched and tested on more than 100,000 patients.

Patients should avoid aspirin regimens or other medications that could inhibit the healing process.

Most patients who receive a Radiesse injection may return to work immediately following injection.

The results of a Radiesse injection treatment are immediate in their visibility. Radiesse has the benefit of lasting over twice as long as similar products. The duration of a Radiesse injection treatment varies between 12 to 18 months.

The cost of Radiesse treatment will vary based on your individual needs. The cost of Radiesse treatment typically runs $850.00 to $1200.00 per treatment.

Because the procedure is considered to be an elective one, insurance will not cover the cost.
