7 Best Vitamins for Healthy Skin

Image
As vitamins are essential to your health and body functions, vitamin deficiencies can cause adverse effects on the skin. Since vitamins C and E play such important roles in protecting your skin from the sun, deficiencies in either vitamin can increase the risk of skin damage, including skin cancer.


Vitamins for skin-health related information is all over on the internet. However, many sites are providing 'no meat on the bone' and confusing content. While some of the sites do provide the needed information; it's unfortunately not comprehensive enough to convince you in making an actionable decision.

Making sure you get enough vitamins can keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. This could translate to a reduction in dark spots, redness, wrinkles, rough patches and excessive dryness.

So, what are the vitamins that you should be taking? Here is the list, in alphabetical order.

1. Vitamin A

If you are lacking in vitamin A, your skin might get dry and itchy or bumpy.

7 Things You’re Not Doing for Your Skin But Should

Image
The quest for clear, smooth, radiant skin can feel like an uphill battle at times, especially when dealing with hard-to-control variables like pollution and fluctuating hormones.



Ask any celebrity about the secrets to a smooth, dewy complexion and you’re likely to hear, “Drink water and get plenty of sleep!” While hydration and rest can work wonders for your skin, most of us require a little bit more TLC to achieve a flawless face.

An estimated 85 percent of young people between the ages of 12 and 24 are plagued by breakouts – whether it’s pimples, congested pores, blackheads, or all of the above. As we get older, the worries over blemishes don’t end. The number of adults that struggle with acne is increasing, affecting up to 15 percent of women. Add fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles to the mix and it’s no wonder the average American woman spends up to $300,000 on face products in her lifetime.

8 Non-Invasive Cosmetic Treatments That Save You Time

Image
Sick of your lengthy beauty regimen? More and more women are ditching their typical routine and turning to non-invasive cosmetic treatments in efforts to limit the time they spend getting ready every morning.



For those who don't want to undergo invasive surgery, there are many permanent and semi-permanent non-invasive options available. These treatments have little to no recovery times and are designed to help you cut corners in your day-to-day beauty routine.

A study claims US women spend one hour per day doing their hair and makeup, and this does not account for any additional plucking, waxing, shaving, fake tanning, moisturizing and exfoliating that she might do on top of that. To put it in perspective, that is two weeks per year spent solely on beauty routines.

'Body contouring' is a general term that refers to both surgical and nonsurgical procedures that are specially designed to remove or reduce stubborn pockets of fat to contour different areas of your body. There are many ways to tackle body contouring when diet and exercise don’t seem to work on stubborn, small areas of fat.

Why It’s Time To Trade Your Lip Filler For A Lip Lift

Image
(Aedit.com) - When most people think of lip enhancement, they think of fillers. But lip lifts provide a more defined Cupid's bow and crisper edges so you can skip lip liner all together.



Even before Kylie Jenner released her first Lip Kit or filled, unfilled, and refilled her famous pout, Americans have had an obsession with lips. Sometime in the last decade, plumping pouts with filler became almost as common as highlighting hair — just one more thing to add to the beauty maintenance list.

While temporary, hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers like Restylane are synonymous with a voluptuous (read: Instagram-friendly) mouth, longer lasting fixes have also taken hold. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were nearly 31,000 surgical (i.e. non-injectable) lip augmentations performed in the U.S. in 2018 — a 66 percent increase from 2000 and 4 percent boost from the previous year.

So, what's behind the surge? The lip lift, a far-from-new but largely under-the-radar…

5 Best Medical Aesthetic (Beauty) Clinics in Kuala Lumpur (KL) 2019

Image
Our enquiry inbox has been popping lately with ladies asking questions like “Can someone recommend me a good aesthetic clinic in Kuala Lumpur?” or “Can someone recommend me a good aesthetic doctor?”. These are common questions that we see frequently on forums and on our WhatsApp groups as well. There's more to this than meets the eye.


AestheticsAdvisor.com
Popularity of a particular doctor or a clinic could be influenced by marketing hype or heavy online and off-line advertising. However, online popularity doesn't necessarily mean that the clinic is the best aesthetic clinic in town for all kinds of aesthetic procedures. 

Shockingly, many consumers still go to unregistered aesthetic doctors for their medical aesthetic procedures. If we wouldn't trust an unqualified car mechanic with our cars, why are we trusting an unqualified aesthetic professional with our face and body? Not every "aesthetic practitioner" is a qualified medical doctor and is properly trained to pe…

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment for Face: Price and Find a Clinic in Malaysia

Image
Platelets are a naturally occurring component of your own blood and play an important role in wound healing and tissue regeneration. Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] therapy is the process of isolating platelets from the blood and concentrating these platelets to much higher concentration levels than normal, through the process of centrifugation. The result is Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP].



PRP treatment for face (also known as 'Vampire facelift') encourages collagen formation and improves blood supply to tissue, both of which are important factors in anti-aging therapies. Your skin texture will improve as the Platelet Rich Plasma stimulates new skin tissue growth.

PRP Therapy is a completely safe and natural treatment and is highly effective at improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, sun damage and dull, worn-out looking skin. PRP can be used to rejuvenate the face, neck, décolleté, back of hands, scalp and other body areas.
