How to Take Care Of Aging Skin

Aging is a continuous process and affects everyone. Though its a natural process yet we may delay or slow this process by taking effective steps. Here are few simple steps you may follow to look younger:

Exfoliate: Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in the care of aging skin. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells build up and accumulated debris. This process opens pores and polishes fine lines.

Protect Skin from Sun: It becomes more crucial to protect your skin from sun as you start to age. Also, the skin of women becomes more sensitive to sun damage, sun spots and moles because of hormonal changes. Safeguard your skin with a good SPF lotion (the higher the better).

Use Facial Oil: You may have stayed away from oils for most of your life because of various reasons like oily/combination skin or acne issues but now its time to rejuvenate your skin with facial oils. It is highly recommended to use oils rich in anti-oxidants and fatty acids.

Drink Plenty of Water: Water flushes out the toxins and adequate amount of liquid intake helps the entire system and of course is best for hydrating ageing skin. The average man needs 2.9 litres, or about 12 cups of water, a day and woman needs about 2.2 litres.

Skin Supplements: Consult your Physcian and take 2 Omega 3 supplements daily, B vitamin complex as well as calcium doses. Your skin requires as many nutrients as your body and hair do.

Use Rich Moisturizers: It is time to use thick face cremes you used to avoid during your teens/youth and adulthood. Make sure you gently massage the creams into your skin and let it absorb it up. Use a cream that your skin appreciates and contains fatty acids, fruit oils and anti oxidants. Using a good quality creame will only improve your skin and help it become hydrated and youthful again.

Use Natural Cosmetics Free from Chemicals: Use skincare products that contain natural ingredients and are free from harsh chemicals. Lass Anti Aging Pack is a chemical free and effective solution to achieve wrinkle free and glowing skin. The combo pack contains Anti Aging Cream which is proven reduce appearance of wrinkles and age spots, naturally.

Saw Palmetto - Natural Treatment for Male Pattern Baldness

If you have male pattern baldness, then here is a hope. According to a new study in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (2002;8:143–52), people with male pattern baldness may increase hair growth by taking a preparation containing saw palmetto (Serenoa repens). Male pattern baldness is a common hereditary condition that affects mostly men, but may affect women as well. Hair loss in this kind of condition often starts with a receding hairline and continues in a horseshoe pattern, leaving hair on the sides and back of the head mostly unaffected. It is believed that excessive conversion of testosterone to another hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is responsible for this kind of baldness.

Saw Palmetto is effective in treating people male pattern baldness and other with hair loss by reducing the amount of DHT in our body and around the hair follicles. Actually it works in similar way as drug finasteride work. Though DHT is a derivate of testosterone but is many times more potent and hair follicles tend to fall off when exposed to the hormone.

A popular hair loss shampoo IHT 9 uses Saw Palmetto as its key ingredient to successfully (and naturally) treat male pattern baldness. IHT 9 is an ayurvedic preparation that contains all natural herbs. IHT 9 Shampoo (alone or with other treatment plan) seems to be a reasonable first line of treatment for mild to moderate male pattern baldness before considering conventional medications.
