Treating Adult Acne With Anti-aging MoisturizersWritten by Paul Resnick
Softening skin and relieving wrinkles with anti-aging moisturizers is becoming a welcome and effective method of treating acne. To date there is a large and growing number of people, especially adult women, who have benefited from new techniques that not only reduce acne but also improve aging skin.
There is connection between anti-aging and acne. In 1970ís two Dermatologists, Dr. Eugene Van Scott, and Dr. Albert Klingman begin investigating vitamin A as an alternative to benzoyl peroxide for treatment of acne. Benzoyl peroxide is active ingredient in most over-the-counter acne remedies. such as Proactiv, Clearasil and others. Dr Klingman eventually developed Retin A, a derivative of vitamin A, and Dr. Van Scott began working with structurally similar Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs). Neither of these researchers attracted much attention until it was noted that women using these substances for acne were experiencing a reduction in skin wrinkling. Retin A and AHAs quickly became most widely used anti-aging skin care ingredients worldwide.
Acne and Wrinkling share same problematic skin condition: excessive undetached dead skin tissue building up on skinís surface. This stiffens skin. Wrinkles result because a less flexible outer layer of skin creases underlying growing tissue. The skin thus increasingly grows into deeper and more pronounced lines. Acne results when this dead skin tissue clogs pores and inhibits normal passage of oils and moisture, causing whiteheads or blackheads and eventually pimples. Both AHAs and Benzoyl peroxide, however, can relieve this condition by exfoliating this dry outermost layer of skin.
Choosing The Right FlooringWritten by Lee Dobbins
When redecorating or putting in an addition, you are faced with many decisions, not least of which is what type of flooring to buy. Should you buy hardwood or carpet? Vinyl or tile? Thereís many things that you should consider before making your final flooring decision.
Two important considerations when purchasing flooring are how durable flooring will be and how stain resistant and easy to clean it is. Your criteria for each depends on use flooring will get.
If you are buying a floor for childrens playroom, then you need a material that can withstand a beating! It needs to be durable enough to survive pounding of feet and toys being dragged acroos it. A hardwood floor might not stand up to such abuse and you may want something a bit more cushiony as well. A durable carpet can work, but donít forget that youíll need something that resists stains from those spills and is easy to clean up.
If, on other hand, your flooring purchase is for a formal living room that is rarely used, you can go with something a bit more beautiful and, perhaps, less functional. A beautiful wood patterned floor or even a plush white carpet can lend an elegant look to any formal room.
