(ARA) – Acne-prone teens with dark complexions have skincare and makeup problems unique to their darker skin tones, and also have difficulty finding skincare information that speaks directly to their needs. Now, teens with complexions ranging from the darkest shades of black skin to lighter olive-colored skin, can get expert skincare and makeup advice on https://petinstead.com/pimpleportal.
Jeanine Downie, M.D., a dermatologist based in Montclair, N.J., recognizes the frustration darkly complected teens experience. “People with darkly complected skin, which can include persons of African-American, Asian, Latino, Mediterranean and Native American heritage, must cope with controlling their acne and are also more prone to scarring. Furthermore, they often have difficulty finding skincare information that addresses darker skin, and don’t know that a dermatologist can provide treatment to help with their specific needs.”
Celebrity makeup artist Michael Criscuolo, whose high-profile client roster includes supermodels Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks, also knows that darkly complected skin requires a bit of extra attention when it comes to finding the right shade of foundation and cover-up. “Women with dark complexions sometimes have difficulty finding a natural shade of makeup to conceal blemishes and scars,” says Criscuolo. “However, new lines of makeup that cater specifically to those with darker skin tones allow the skin to appear flawless, and best of all, natural.”
Named one of 2000’s “Best of the Web” by Access Magazine and awarded a Gold Triangle Award by the American Academy of Dermatology for furthering public understanding of dermatological issues, https://petinstead.com/pimpleportal provides information for teens to help them cope with, cover-up and conquer breakouts and other skin problems. Dr. Downie and Michael Criscuolo offer teens with dark complexions the following advice:

A common problem many times facing parents is Colic. Estimates say that between 15-25% of infants are born with Colic. Although it is not believed to effect a baby’s development it is still a struggle for parents to cope with. Babies with colic most often cry for several hours at a time with diaper changes and feedings having no effect.
Some of the symptoms that your little one may have colic are (but not limited to) as follows:
1.) A high pitched cry that does not let up in intensity, sometimes for hours at a time
2.) Pulls their legs towards their chest or holds them straight out
3.) Face becoming flush and warm while legs feel cooler
4.) Held breathes
5.) Painful facial expressions
Unlike many other childhood ailments, there is no one specific reason a baby may have colic. There are several factors however that may exasperate colic.
They include:
1.) Lack of Burping
2.) Food Allergies
3.) Swallowing Air
4.) Overfeeding or Eating too fast
5.) A tense home environment
The good news is that the symptoms usually disappear at about the 4 month mark. In the meantime here are some tips on minimizing those symptoms.
1.) After each ounce or few minutes of formula, burp them.
2.) Do not feed them while they are lying down
3.) Go for a ride in the car or try a gentle rocking while walking.
4.) Play white noise for them. There are many options in white noise now including lullabies playing in the forefront. Constant noise like Vacuum Cleaners and Fans are also very helpful in some cases and can be purchased on CD to avoid drafts or other issues. These can be purchased from the author of this article at https://petinstead.com/yourfavouriteshop
5.) A warm bath with a few drops of chamomile essential oil to the water to help them to relax further.
6.) Change to a low-allergy formula or switch to a soy based one.
7.) If you are breast feeding, avoid tea and coffee
Above all you should always consult your physician to discuss the different symptoms. You should always be aware that the symptoms listed above may also be indications of ear infections, allergies, etc. so it is important to discuss everything candidly with your pediatrician.

Weary Minds: The Nature Of Mental Fatigue

562

Summary:

Like the body, the mind can also feel fatigue. However, unlike the body, a good night’s sleep can sometimes prove inadequate for dealing with the problem. Often, what works as a solution for one only aggravates the problem in another.

fatigue


The medical community generally views fatigue as a source of mystery — a complex physical condition that afflicts millions of people worldwide. It is not quite on the same level as being tired, as most people can easily say that they are “beyond tired” by the time fatigue sets in. Fatigue sets the body into a state of near-total lethargy. When fatigue sets in, the continuation of other physical activities is almost always nearly impossible. Further activity could result in muscle spasms and pain in various parts of the body. Lower back pain is one of the most common ailments suffered by people with fatigue. In some cases, a fatigued individual may experience somnolence due to fatigue, though excessive physical labor is not the only cause of somnolence. read more

Wearing Contact Lenses

If you’ve never worn contact lenses, you may not appreciate the amazing selection available on today’s market. Be glad: you have much more choice than in the past. With so many options, how do you choose the right type of contact lenses?
Your doctor can probably help you figure out which contact lenses are best for you. Some contact lenses are suited to certain vision problems, like astigmatism. Others, like extended-wear contact lenses, are marketed to suit certain lifestyles. Colored contact lenses sometimes are used by people who don’t even need prescription lenses but just want to change their eye color. Regardless, contact lenses should only be purchased by a professional eyecare practitioner, who knows how to properly fit the lenses and help you take care of your eyes. In fact, in the United States, it is illegal to purchase contact lenses without a valid prescription.
It’s good to be informed about the different types of contact lenses before making your decision. Different contact lenses need to be replaced on different cycles. Some pairs last a month, some only two weeks. Other contact lenses are made to be worn only for one day. These contact lenses usually cost more, as you are paying for convenience.
It is important not to sleep in your contact lenses unless your practitioner says it’s okay. Even contact lenses made for this purpose may not be good for you, especially if your eyes tend to be very dry. Be sure to ask.
Soft contact lenses have become most popular, as they are easy to get used to and are very comfortable to wear. While gas permeable contact lenses take longer to get used to, they last longer and tend to have less deposit buildup. Also, these contact lenses are less expensive in the long run because they don’t need to be replaced as often. Some people also believe gas permeable contact lenses are better for your eye health and may even help improve vision. However, they are rigid and some people don’t like how they feel.
As contact lenses have improved, so have their uses. Bifocal wearers rejoice! Many contact lens manufacturers have started making lenses that even you can wear. Ask your practitioner for details. read more
