SKINCARE TALK WITH BOLA AKINBOADE-BELLO: 5 SIMPLE WAYS TO REMOVE SCARS CAUSED BY ACNE


PREVENTION IS BETTER!
Before I go on to share some really beneficial home remedies to remove acne scars naturally, I want to share some words of wisdom. There are certain things that you should avoid in order to prevent forming scars at the first place. It’s not essential to have scars even if you get pimples!
Who likes scars and especially on face? Getting rid of acne scars is a little tougher than eliminating acne actually. Pimples can be naturally treated with many ingredients having anti-inflammatory or antibacterial properties which are in abundance in nature. However, pimple scars are a little stubborn as they don’t go easily. However, as the saying goes, nothing is impossible. It may take some time but your regular efforts using certain natural bleaching agents as well as other ingredients may lighten your acne scars and gradually remove them permanently.

DON’T PLAY WITH YOUR ACNE
Keep your hands off your acnes! Don’t play with them, don’t pick them or squeeze them, just leave them alone when you are not applying any remedy on them. Whatever you are doing to remove pimples, do it with gentle hands. Why? I’ll tell you.
When you get acne, there is intense inflammation on your facial skin and there is loss of collagen. Collagen is the protein fiber, one of the components of skin which gives skin its elasticity. When you pick or squeeze your pimples, it leads to further inflammation and injury to your skin. It also leads the bacteria and pus in your pimple goes deep down into your skin resulting in more loss of collagen which means even deeper scars on your face.

RAPPER 50 CENTS FILES 11 BANKRUPTCY



US rapper, actor and businessman, Curtis Jackson known as 50 cents is seeking bankruptcy protection in a United States Court after a jury Friday ordered him to pay $5 million to a woman who said he acquired a video she made with her boyfriend, added himself as a crude commentator and posted it online without her permission.

A Fox news report said, the lawsuit stems from a 13-minute video that appeared online in 2009 featuring a wig-wearing 50 Cent as a narrator dubbed Pimpin’ Curly.

WHAT THE COLOR OF YOUR URINE CAN REALLY MEAN!



The color of your urine can really mean a lot more or less important to even worry about, but how can one really be sure of which urine color is safe and tag “nothing to worry about” Someone might say you just can’t be too sure, yea but we’d look into most common colors of urine and what could probably be the reason it is so. Historically, looking at urine has been a way for doctors to gauge a person’s health, especially before other types of testing were available. If you’ve had diabetes for a long time or know someone who has, you’ll know that urine testing was a way to figure out how well controlled (or uncontrolled) a persons’ diabetes was — this was done in the days before blood glucose meters were available. Now, of course, we have more sophisticated tools to convey glucose information. But urine still has its place. In this article, BOLA AKINBOADE-BELLO presents to you the different colors of urine and what they mean.  But before we shoot for the full reason why your urine or that of someone you know is looking a bit weird, let’s define urine as an element...    

WHAT IS URINE?
Urine is a waste product that contains breakdown products from food, drinks, medicines, cosmetics, environmental contaminants, and by-products from metabolism and bacteria. Amazingly, urine contains more than 3,000 compounds — much more than what’s found in other body fluids, like saliva or cerebrospinal fluid. The kidneys do a remarkable job of filtering and concentrating to help get these compounds out of the body (you can now understand why keeping your kidneys healthy is of high importance). So, what is the color of your urine trying to telling you?

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SKIN RASHES



 A "rash" is a general term for inflammation of the skin. There are many causes of a rash, which includes, but not limited to, allergic or irritant dermatitis, autoimmune disease, infections, medications, and rarely cancer of the skin.Allergic contact dermatitis is a skin condition that arises after contact with a chemical from which you have developed an allergy. Common allergens can be found in makeup, soaps, detergents, colognes, various plants such as poison ivy, or other chemical that may be found at home or in the workplace. It is sometimes necessary to do allergy testing to determine which chemical may be causing the rash.
Irritant contact dermatitis is similar in appearance to allergic contact dermatitis, although the etiology is different. It is caused by contact to various chemicals that we use every day for cosmetic or cleaning purposes, as well as from chemicals in the workplace. These chemicals cause the skin to become inflamed from direct irritation, but not due to an allergic reaction.
Autoimmune disease of the skin is caused by an abnormal response by the immune system. These diseases are often exacerbated by sun exposure. Some examples of autoimmune disease include Psoriasis and Lupus. It is important to evaluate these diseases to ensure that other organs are not involved.
Infection of the skin can cause a rash as well. Bacteria, fungi, and viruses can all affect the skin. Bacterial diseases generally appear as pustules, tender crusted areas, or in ring like patches (Lyme disease). Fungal diseases such as ringworm or athletes foot are also very common. Viral diseases can present as rashes, either directly such as herpes, chicken pox, and shingles, or indirectly as a rash appearing during a viral illness, such as roseola.
Medications are a frequent cause of rash. Basically, any medication can cause a rash to develop in any person. Common medications that cause a rash include antibiotics, and medications for high blood pressure and cholesterol.
Rarely, cancer of the skin can present as a skin rash. Superficial skin cancers, such as basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma can present as scaly pink patches. Lymphoma of the skin can present as a scaly rash on the body.Many of these rashes look the same to the untrained eye; therefore it is important to consult a dermatologist, a specialist in this area, when you have a skin condition that is not going away.
In this article, BOLA AKINBOADE-BELLO gives you a breakdown of the common skin rashes mentioned above so you could basically understand in full what these things really are……..
