How To Avoid 8 Years Of Poor Health In A Fat Body

By Rob Poulos, Fat Loss & Fitness Expert & Author of "Fat Burning Furnace"

I was puttering around on the Internet this morning and I saw something that caught my eye. It was the latest data regarding our current life expectancy as humans from the World Health Organization, along with a history of how that's changed over the years.

This info went all the way back to the Neanderthal period (the guys from the Geico commercials) up to present day humans. Those poor Geico guys only lived to be 20 years old on average, while today's humans can expect about 75 years of life.

But did you know that today's people have an average healthy life expectancy of just 67 years? In other words, this is saying that you can expect 8 years of your life in poor health. 8 years! That's 2900+ days of poor health. I don't know about you, but that's not something I'm looking forward to.

I sure think we can do better than 67 years of good health on this planet. And you know what? We can. This number is an average. Like anything else, you don't have to be average if you don't want to be. The average person doesn't exercise properly, if at all. The average person doesn't know how to make the right foods selections and maintain a healthy diet. The average person doesn't apply themselves mentally and emotionally to maintain relatively stress free living.

If this sounds a little bit too much like you, the good news is you don't have to be this person any longer. While it is a shame that today's health, fitness, and diet industry is simply confusing more people than it's helping, there are a few people and organizations out there that can provide a realistic, effective and efficient approach to breaking past the average healthy life span and living those years full of energy, strength, and vitality.

I get questions from my Fat Burning Furnace readers all the time, after going through the materials, about how they can't believe how little exercise I recommend. And even though I've told them up front that they can let go of the aerobics or traditional cardio, many still have trouble doing that. And what I tell them is directly related to the subject of life expectancy and just how much time we really have in our lives.

I tell them that having a lean, strong, and healthy body is great. It's one of the most important things we can attain. Period. But, how much time is it worth to you? That's the question I asked myself over and over when seeking out my own methods and developing the methods.

Most people, after years and years of trial and error, come to realize that spending several days and hours a week working out is just not worth the trouble. And carefully measuring your food, counting calories, and depriving yourself of nutrient rich foods like whole grain carbohydrates is also something that shouldn't be necessary to enjoy a healthy and energy filled life. And it isn't.

What we really should be focusing on is how much time and effort is minimally required to get the results we're looking for. Think about that. Not how much, but how much is minimally required. Remember, we've got just 67 healthy years as a starting point...If I valued my time on this planet, this is what I would be searching for.

If it really took hours and hours a week and all of that crazy nutrition manipulation to burn fat, build muscle, strength, and cardiovascular health, I'm not sure I'd do it. Not for very long anyway. I've tried that approach, for years, and if you have you know it's no fun. And it's just not realistic given the demands our lives place on us in today's world.

But as I've mentioned before, you don't have to worry about that kind of stuff anymore. The principles in my system allow you to approach your genetic potential for a lean, strong, and healthy body in just minutes each week and with very simple lifestyle changes.

I've been using the principles for a while now. I work out twice each week. I even take a week off entirely every few weeks or so. I don't count calories. I don't deprive myself of the foods I love. If it's my daughter's birthday, I eat a piece of cake. I just work the FBF principles and continue to stay in great shape day after day, week after week, year after year.

I work out so little because of the way the workouts are performed and created, and I eat with such flexibility because I stick with the lifestyle, which gives you the power of flexibility and variation that is lacking in most programs.

What I'm saying is that I've discovered what is minimally required to give me the health and body that I wanted. And many of my students are doing it as well. Sure I could add another day a week to my workouts, but at this point it would actually be detrimental to my results. I could also start messing with my diet in all sorts of crazy ways, but that would just make my body angry and cause me unneeded stress.

So, I ask you, are you trying to find what's minimally required to get you the results you want? If you truly value your time and the other worthy pursuits in your life, I'm suggesting that this is exactly what you should be doing. If you don't, you may just end up being an average 67 year old with 8 years of poor health to look forward to.

Discovering Cellulite on Leg Treatments

By Patricia Hammond

Aside from being the most difficult to get rid of, cellulite on leg is also the most difficult one to hide . That is of course, unless you are perfectly okay with wearing long skirts and jeans everyday even on the beach. Before you get carried away with cellulite on leg treatment options however, there are certain facts that you should consider.

Unique Conditions

Different people have different degrees of the cellulite condition. You should understand therefore that not all expensive treatments and procedures will work for your particular cellulite on leg case. A particularly severe case of cellulite may need the assessment of an unbiased medical practitioner. Less severe cellulite on leg cases however may benefit from simple home remedies and activities rather than expensive treatments.

Unique Causes

The causes of cellulite and cellulite on leg conditions are not yet fully understood. Even athletes may have some cellulite areas. You should therefore refrain being too hard on yourself if you over ate just a little bit or if you have been a little lazy lately. There is some evidence that cellulite on leg conditions may be genetic and may only minimally be reduced by diet and exercise changes in some individuals. This does not mean however that you can now live the life of a sloth.

Exercise and Diet Role

Aside from the genetic causal factor, some experts also point to toxin build up as a possible cause of cellulite on leg conditions. Since cellulite is a unique condition, some people may react well to basic exercise and diet remedies. A diet rich in antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables may therefore be helpful.

Of course, more prominent muscles would be able to reduce the obvious appearance of cellulite on the leg. Running and simple squat thrusts may therefore help reduce cellulite in people with less severe cellulite conditions.

Reduced Antioxidants

It is not always possible for a lot of people to get the right amounts of antioxidants in daily food intake. There are also some very severe cellulite on leg conditions that may not be treated effectively by a strict antioxidant diet. This is because too much fat deposits may block blood flow that carries antioxidant properties.

Natural Help

Since some people cannot get enough antioxidants into the body's system, the most logical choice is to ask for help from nature herself to treat cellulite on leg areas. A lot of good natural topical treatment solutions contain natural ingredients like caffeine extract that can make its way through the skin into cellulite areas to break down fat and promote blood circulation.

Product Reliability

Not all anti-cellulite products in the market contain real ingredients or agents that can get rid of cellulite. The products that you should avoid the most are those that promise miracle cures. A lot of these fake products are either only moisturizers or cosmetic make up that will only temporarily mask your cellulite problem. Go for a natural product that has a good reputation and a money back guarantee.

Do You Know That Botox Is Related to Botulism?

What is Botox®? It's basically the trade name for botulinum toxin A. Because of this, Botox® is related to botulism. Botulism is a form of food poisoning that occurs when someone eats something containing a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin A is one of the neurotoxins produced by Clostridium botulinum.

Used in tiny amounts, Botox® can temporarily paralyze a muscle and reduce or eliminate wrinkles or frown lines. Effective Botox® treatments are accomplished by binding to the junction between nerves and muscle tissue. Botox® effectively blocks the release of acetylcholine, the chemical responsible for normal muscular contractions, weakening the ability of certain facial muscles to induce fine lines, wrinkles, frowns and furrows through their repetitive use.

Although most women feel that a Botox® injection is a safe procedure, you also have to think about the possible side effects. The most serious symptom of botulism is ....to finish reading this article, visit:


3 Fast Simple Skin Care Treatment Tricks For Your Skin

by Dragan Ravikovitch

Before deciding what type of acne skin care treatments you
are looking for you need to know a little bit about your own
skin. The types of allergies and the type of natural skin
you already have comes to mind. In this short article you'll
learn a few ways of finding the best skin care treatment for
you, and also a simple trick you can use right now.

What is The Best Skin Care Treatment For You?

Red infections and scarring... as well as swelling is a
common problem. You can easily stop this by simple washing
your face two times daily, not more, not less. This helps
prevent breakouts. Also never try to squeeze pimples that
are popping out. They leave permanent marks when you do and
almost always worsen your skin.

Here's another simple solution you can use. Avoid touching
things around you and keep away from dirt. Telephones and
other office material can be the root cause of your bad
skin. How many people touched the phone today? Yes, we don't
want to know!

If you wear sunglasses, be sure to clean them as frequent as
possible. You can actively do this on a day to day, or
weekly basis to keep oil from clogging the pores around your
eyes and nose. If you are a user of any kind of make-up or
cosmetics always be sure to remove your makeup before you go
to bed at night. If you have dirty hair or anything like
that, try to keep dirty hair away from your face and clean
up. If you are out a lot in the sun: Remember to protect
your skin from the sun, as a tan can cause the body to
produce extra sebum. This can very well worsen the acne that
you have!

A company called Zenmed has over the last couple of years
produces hundreds of ance skin care treatments and has
helped thousands of people become acne free. Most acne
creams just plain and simply don't work, but Zenmed has had
a proven trackrecord of helping people with their "instant
deliery", derma cleanse and anti-moist products.

If you have been reading you've learned a few easy
non-product tips that help you instantly. It's not easy
deciding and there are a few more things to consider before
choosing a quality skin care treatment. You need to know
what type of skin you have? Is your natural skin accepting
of creams and lotions? If you have tried any cream, have you
had reactions? When using or borrowing a cream, does it

The little tricks you learned right here are things you can
use right now and see massive improvents for your precious
skin. You can use acne skin care treatments or acne skin
creams and regularly wash your face. It's your turn to
choose what kind of treatment you, yourself want to get the
results you want.

Using this simple solution now can really help:

Try mixing one teaspoon of honey in 30 ml cabbage juice.
This is a proven technique to use on bad skin.

Just like the previously mentioned, there are several skin
care remedies that can truly produce real results for you.
As usual with acne, the only thing that is necessary is
time, but not money.

Have you noticed the array of Bikini displays lately?

By: Lana Robinson

How prepared is YOUR Body for Bikini Season? I have the perfect solution
for you!

How about a Big old Dose of Motivation and some Bikini Ready Tips
to get you going?!

Take action on getting your body ready by implementing these 4
simple Tips into your fitness program.

1. Resistance Training is a must! This is the only form of exercise
that will supercharge your metabolism. Perform exercises that use
the largest muscles. Squats and Lunges are an excellent choice for
your lower body. For your arms and shoulders, try exercises that
involve pushing or pulling movements. My favorites are push ups and
pull ups.

2. Forget Isolated Movements - they are a waste of your time. There
are no magic "arm, abs, butt or thigh exercises" that you can focus
on to reduce the fat in that particular area. No amount repetitions
you can do long enough or hard enough will make a difference if you
are neglecting the larger muscles in your body.

3. Trade Traditional Cardio for Intervals. Cardio is not the
cure-all for fat loss, it simply aids in the creation of a caloric
deficit, but the calories you burn during cardio are temporary.
Intervals and short burst resistance training address the core of a
true fat loss program by permanently increasing the rate at which
the body burns calories by preserving and adding lean muscle.

4. You are what you eat! Yes, the foods you eat will determine
whether or not you see results from all the hard work you are
putting into your fat burning workouts. Step One: Write it Down.
You cannot change what you do not know exists. Trade the dead,
empty calorie foods for live, natural whole foods, eat every 3 to
4 hours and take your metabolism and the fitness of your body to
the next level!

Finding The Root Cause Of Hair Loss

By Irina Thorton

Men with shiny patches of skin on the scalp have become a common sight. Evidence suggests though that women may also be common victims of hair loss. It is perhaps because of this equal tendency for baldness that both men and women are becoming increasingly interested in understanding the cause of hair loss.

Hair Cycle

It is natural to lose several strands of hair in a single day. In the usual hair cycle, 80%-90% of hair strands are in the anagen or growing phase. The rest of the 10%-20% of hair strands are in the sleeping phase.

These hair strands normally get ready to be shed by thinning in the catagen phase and eventually falling off during the telogen phase. This is not the cause of hair loss that we should be worried about because hair normally grows back after a natural cycle.

Male Hair Loss

The cause of men's hair loss may be due to more than one factor. The most common cause of hair loss however involves genetics and hormone levels. It is known that at least 95% of hair loss in men is linked to no other cause of hair loss than androgenetic alopecia, more commonly known as male pattern baldness. This inherited condition results in a growing bald area on top of the head and a receding hairline.

Androgenetic alopecia is the result of having too much of a testosterone byproduct called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT may actually be beneficial in younger, growing males but too much of it in adults can be a cause of hair loss. DHT can be a cause of hair loss by attaching to hair follicles and cutting off the blood supply. Hair follicles therefore begin to shrink, making the growth of new hair strands impossible.

Female Pattern Baldness

Baldness may be less obvious and less severe in women. However, there is a condition called female pattern baldness that is so common that 1 in 4 women have it. The reason why it may not be obvious in women is that female pattern baldness does not result in whole patches of hair falling off. Instead, female baldness is characterized by thinning areas near the front of the scalp or hairline or generally thinning hair on the entire scalp. In most cases, strands of hair still remain on females with female pattern baldness.

There seems to be no set age for female baldness to begin but just like in males, the main cause of hair loss in women stems from genetic and hormonal factors. It seems that estrogen imbalances in females may be the main cause of hair loss.

For example, women who have recently given birth may experience thinning hair. However, they may eventually regain lost hair when their estrogen levels stabilize again. Women who are undergoing menopause however and women under hormone therapy may experience more enduring cases of hair loss. Hormone therapy with progesterone for example may be a cause of hair loss in women since the hormone blocks the development of follicles.

Why Is Acne No More The Best Selling Holistic Acne Book In Internet History?

Why Is Acne No MoreThe Best Selling Holistic Acne Book In Internet History, With Thousands Of Satisfied (And Now Acne Free) Users In 131 Countries Worldwide?

Acne No More is the #1 best selling acne ebook in the history of the Internet for a reason...

Thousands of women and men of every age have completely cured their acne condition and achieved lasting clear skin naturally, without drugs, over the counters, creams or "magic potions," simply by using the clinically proven, scientifically-accurate step by step method found inside this amazing acne freedom guidebook.

Mike Walden, a certified nutritionist, health consultant and author has not just pumped out yet another "acne cure program" into an already over-saturated market. Mike's Acne No More can be more accurately described as an "Acne Bible." It is quite simply one of the most comprehensive, complete, and precise guides to acne freedom you will ever read. What makes it so much different than other clear skin publications on the market?

Well first of all, it's not just a "acne relief" or "skin care" program, it's a holistic acne cure program. This may seem like semantics or wordplay at first, but once you've read just the first chapters, there will be no doubt in your mind that pursuing "acne relief" is not only the wrong goal, it may be the reason that you've failed to stop and maintain your 'acne free internal environment'. Acne No More shows you exactly why you should fix the internal problem that's causing your acne, not just masking the symptoms or getting relief and then goes on to show you exactly how to do it.

Secondly, what makes Acne No More different is the amount of attention that is paid to each and every element required to achieve permanent freedom from acne symptoms and from hormonal and toxic overload disorders. Acne No More not only thoroughly discusses the lies, myths and fallacies surrounding a very confusing subject, it is simply the most detailed book about acne, blackheads, and hormonal health and inner balance ever written.

The Acne No More book is quite extensive (223 pages of rock solid content) which focuses on 100% natural acne treatment. That means there aren't recommendations for harsh prescription drugs with nasty side effects. In Acne No More core formula section (The 5 pillars) - Nothing is held back. In this section, Mike gives a detailed overview of each step, and then dives into the specifics in a perfect chronological order. There are also outstanding charts and checklists which make it very easy to know where you are at in the program and follow it.

Because the Acne No More program is not a quick fix ‘fairy tale’ cure but a complete holistic solution aimed at eliminating the root cause of acne and digestive disorders (regardless of their severity) and ensure your will permanently be acne-free, it does take work and persistence to complete. "The dictionary is the only place success comes before work" says Mike, as he emphasizes the "no quick fix" philosophy behind the entire book.

If there is any drawback to the Acne No More ebook, it's that it contains so much information, that some readers may find it a bit overwhelming. Those who are looking for a quick start type of acne program, might be a bit intimated at first. The good part however, is that even these types of readers can feel confident and assured that it will be worth the effort because this will literally be the last book they ever have to buy on the subject.

Who will benefit most from Acne No More?

In the broadest sense, anyone and everyone who needs to cure their acne and regain their natural inner balance will benefit from Acne No More. This ebook is honestly for everyone. Even people without acne. This is a total health rejuvenation program better than 98% of the nutrition and alternative health books on the market.

In terms of graphic design, Acne No More is a clean and professionally formatted PDF e-book. It is well organized and ideal for printing and reading in the comfort of your own home.

This impressive and unique publication has changed many lives and the hundreds of inspiring testimonials and success stories are found on the Acne No More website archives as proof.

The Bottom line?

Anyone looking for a quick fix solution to acne, anyone looking to be told fairy-tales, and anyone looking for a "magic bullet", acne pills, over the counters, 'acne freedom in 3 days' hyped up programs should not waste his or her time with Acne No More.

On the other hand, anyone searching for the truth about acne and his natural inner balance and who is ready and willing to put in some work and make the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve acne freedom, will find Acne No More to be one of the best investments they ever made in their lives.

What Is The Use Of Anti Aging Eye Cream

By Geoff Hopkins

Why are people using anti aging eye cream , and what even is it? As we become older, dark circles begin to form below our eyes showing signs of aging. Another clear sign of age is the wrinkles that form. A person's eyes are a serious factor in their appearance. It is a known fact people look at our eyes when we are conversing, and because of that, we should take seriously the care of the appearance of the eyes. Below, we will begin to realize the many causes of bothersome wrinkles and dark circles.

The sun rays is one of the main causes. It affects the soft skin around the eyes considerably. Besides the eye is a great metabolic organ. It does not contain any fat or oil substance. Age does bring changes in the skin around the eyes. Puffiness, dark circles and tired looking eyes are caused by the age. The eye lids get wrinkles and lines on them. If these things are found then immediate attention should be given to the eyes so that we can always look young and attractive.

Cosmetic research has found ways to reduce age's effect on the eye area. Researchers have found many products that can hide the signs of age such as alpha hydroxy. This helps to produce new cells replacing the dead cells due to age. All over the world dermatologists have recommended alpha hydroxy. This helps to produce new cells replacing the dead cells due to age. A consumer needs to be careful when using these products.

Alpha hydroxy anti aging eye cream is not always suitable for everyone. Everyone is different and your dermatologist needs to prescribe the one suitable for you. Because the dosage varies between people, It is inadvisable to administer the product to yourself. Overusing the product can result is skin damage. Also, when the use of the cream stops, wrinkles, line and dark circles tend to return.

Many anti aging eye creams have been created with the vitamins A and D. The vitamins help restore skin that has been damaged from the Sun's rays. Some products add vitamin E to soothe the skin and to prevent damage causing ultra violet rays. Creams that add moisture the skin and can improve firmness of the skin. Some products improve the texture of your skin to make the eyes appear brighter and healthier.

Some eye creams are produced with natural substances such as sunflower oil, almond oil, nutmeg oil, etc. With many of the natural products it can take many weeks to work efficiently. A user should continue to sue the product as directed and wait patiently for results. Many such products are blamed as nonworking when the user gave up to soon.

With the hundreds of types creams available on the market, we need to take better care in our selection of the right product for our skin. Dermatologists are the only ones who will be able to prescribe the correct product suitable to our skin. With the correct product and the right use we will begin to receive very good results. Nevertheless, we should not expose our genital skin too much to the harsh sunrays. Even the protection of sunglasses will help.

There are few alternate medicines, but some of the Indian medicines made out of herbs have been known to yield better results. One advantage is the herbal medicines are less likely to produce any side effect. In close, many anti aging creams do work, and a user should consult their dermatologist. When used correctly, a user can effectively reduce and recover damage to the skin, around their eyes, and help make the user more attractive.

Choosing The Right Acne Treatment

by Jay Anderson

Acne is a disorder that literally affects millions of people across the world. It knows no age, gender, or race. Many people suffer from acne and have a hard time finding the right acne treatment that best suits their specific problem and needs.

You might not know that acne actually has several different causes and several different types. This is one thing that makes choosing the proper acne treatment more of a quandary. You need the right acne treatment so that your acne problem is taken care of. However, you also need the right treatment so that your skin itself improves. This should be your ultimate goal.

It is imperative that you discuss both your disease and your treatment choices with your dermatologist before you begin treatment. If your acne is particularly severe, it is especially important that you see a dermatologist and don't just try to treat your acne yourself. Not only may you waste money on something you buy that doesn't work, but you could in fact make your acne worse. You need to learn everything you can about your disorder, including what causes and what cures it. This can help you choose the right acne treatment.

For example, a particular kind of bacterium known as P. Acnes in fact is one major cause of this disease. It's important that you know this because the two major healing agents used to treat acne are benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. Benzoyl peroxide actually works to kill the bacteria that cause this type of acne. The salicylic acid works to gently exfoliate your skin, which can both helped clean out the follicle build up that helps cause the acne and can keep it from coming back as well.

Of course, these two medications are only two of many options available, and each is available over the counter. You need to understand which medication you need to use for your skin type. This is why it's especially important for you to talk your dermatologist before you begin any type of treatment.

You can also choose from many "acne kits" available on the market today. These kits contain individual products designed to work together synergistically to help you improve your skin. Typically, they contain one of the two active ingredients (either salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide), along with other agents designed to do such things as tone and soothe skin after treatment.

With these kits, however, you have to take care. This is because each of these kits is designed for a particular skin type. You need to choose a kit specifically designed for your skin type, such as dry skin. You can actually cause yourself harm or even make your acne worse if you choose improperly. For example, an acne kit meant for dry skin is meant to both treat the acne and moisturize the skin at the same time. A kit designed for oily skin contains drying agents that "soak up" the excess oil and keep the source of the oil in check as well. Therefore, if you have dry skin and use an oily skin treatment, you could actually harm your skin and perhaps even make your acne worse.

Most importantly, diet and lifestyle greatly affect your acne. The foods you eat can actually aggravate or lessen acne's presence. How much you sleep and how much water you drink can also soothe or aggravate your acne. You need to get enough sleep (usually at least a full eight hours) so that your skin has time to heal and rebuild. Drinking at least six to eight eight-ounce glasses of water a day helps your body flush out toxins so that they don't have to find their way out through your skin. In addition, your skin is much more hydrated and therefore much more likely to be healthy.

Discovering Cellulite Becomes Every Celebrities Worse Nightmare

By Graham Foster

If you were to open any womens magazine which you saw displayed at the bookstore or at the airport news rack you would only need to flick a few pages to come face to face with societies obssesion with cellulite. I am confident in it's pages you would find either an ad, feature article or most likely a photo of the latest maturing celebrity with cellulite.But this behaviour makes no sense whatsoever.

But why is it such a big deal, what is cellulite?

A simple description would be for cellulite "a lumpy substance resembling cottage cheese that is commonly found on the thighs, stomach, and butt." Cellulite is actually a fancy name for collections of fat that push against the connective tissue beneath a person's skin, which causes the surface of the skin to dimple or pucker and look a little lumpy"

Inspite of most peoples belief both women and men of all ages can have cellulite. This effect when seen in young baby will cause adoration will lead to horror when see in the mirror by most women. Trash mags and celebrity photo mags take an almost mischevious delight in displaying across their pages pictures of celebrities photographed with powerful zoom lenses showing the orange peel like skin around their legs and butt of the latest celebrity as if it was some sort of serious illness.

You'll notice in your drug store and online hundreds of creams, lotions and all manner of potions to rid ourselves of the legs and thighs of this dimpling effect called cellulite. All of which claim to resolve the problem.

What many people so easily ignore out of choice or ignorance there is a very simple solution for cellulite elimination and preventing it in the first place in a word, EXERCISE! that's right In most cases, regular exercise such as biking or walking will rid you of cellulite and tone your legs and bottom better than any cream, lotion or other method ...

It's a bit of down side having to actually do something to get rid of cellulite I know. But on the huge plus side you'll get fitter and live longer so that's got to be a plus.

People obsess over the result or you prefer the end result, not the cause or the neglect that actually lead to poor health. This is not saying that everyone should expect a perfectly toned body at any age, but certainly keeping yourself healthy is an sensible choice.

It's important to understand that cellulite is NOT a disease and not even an unhealthy characteristic of the body. This is very much contrary to what all the womens magazines and skin care manufacturers would have you believe.

Simply walking for half and hour every day will do more for your self-confidence and overall feeling of health than any magic cream or lotion or those increasingly popular electric muscle stimulators. If you found time like I did to read research about cellulite, it is very simply fatty tissue that is not generally unhealthy in its self (unless you also have too much body fat overall) and really no different from ordinary fat any where else on the body.

Which ever topical product you apply or nutritional supplement you choose to take or device you try or even spa treatment you pay for they all come with little or no guarantee of success. You should also heed the fact that few of these products have been tested for safety and most are pretty much ineffective. You still can't beat simple exercise and healthy eating regimen to get rid or unwanted surplus fat anywhere on the body.

You must not forget your body shape and the way it disperses fat around the body is a genetic trait so if you get cellulite if all else fails just say your mom gave it to you.

A leading source for information about cellulite is the US National Library of Medicine which states:

- Stop Smoking if a smoker, and take regular exercise not forgetting to maintain a healthy weight without huge fluctuations. Drink plenty of fluids (ideally water) and consume at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

There is no need for concern about cellulite but with all those magazines bombarding you I expect you'll find that hard to accept.

Vitamin A And Healthy Skin Nutrition

By Sara Musfeldt

You should evaluate your diet for solutions to any ailment you have-whether your ailment is skin-related or otherwise. If you have dry/flaky skin or acne then it's quite possible that a lack of vitamin A could be the reason; this vitamin is a critical component in rebuilding cells, which helps maintain healthy skin.

Vitamin A is created from retinol and beta-carotene, which are considered pre-vitamin A. With enough pre-vitamin A the body can manufacture its own supply of vitamin A. Consuming the right vegetables and animal products you are giving your body what it needs. However, you can try taking a vitamin A supplement of no more than 25,000 international units a day (more than this can be toxic) for optimal consumption.

Below is a list of vitamin A rich foods:


Sweet potatoes






Egg yolks


Mozzarella cheese

With the right amounts in your system, the benefits of vitamin A are plentiful including hydrated skin with no flaking and quickly healed pimples and lesions. Also, studies prove that there is a link between those with low levels of vitamin A and severe acne. To benefit from vitamin A, acne sufferers should take a supplement, modify their diet, and use topical skin care products that contain vitamin A, or retinol.

Vitamin A is an excellent part of skin fitness and your overall fitness. In addition to helping with acne and hydration, it is also an antioxidant, good for your immune system, bone strength, eyesight, and digestive system.

The 6 Most Common Pimple Types

By Lana Robinson

Nearly 17 million people in the United States have acne, which makes it one of the most common skin diseases. Acne is most common in teenagers and young adults, and does not discriminate among races. Nearly 85 percent of people between the ages of 12 and 24 get acne at one time or another, some more than others. For most people, acne goes away by age 30. But some people in their forties and fifties still get acne.

We don't know the exact cause of how a pimple develops. What we do know is that the pore collapses on itself and blocks oil (sebum) from escaping. This causes the pore to become clogged and infected. The process by which a pimple develops is highly intricate, and we don't fully understand why one sebaceous gland has a clogging problem while the other does not.

While we don't understand exactly what causes acne, we do know that hormones, diet, vitamin deficiency, stress, evolutionary biology (just to name a few) play a role in the formation of acne. Most pimples are found on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. While acne is not a serious health threat, it can cause physical and emotional scars.

Pimples grow when body hair, sebum (oil), and skin cells clump together into a plug. Bacteria in the plug cause swelling. When the plug starts to break down, a pimple appears.

Because many factors cause pimples, time is better spent on finding and testing an effective treatment.

There are many types of pimples. The most common types are:

1. Whiteheads. Pimples that stay under the skin's surface.

2. Blackheads. These pimples rise to the skin's surface and look black. The black color is not from dirt.

3. Papules. Tender, small pink bumps that appear on the surface of the skin.

4. Pustules. Pimples that have pus at the top and are red at the bottom.

5. Nodules. These are large, painful, solid pimples that are deep in the skin.

6. Cysts. Pus-filled, deep and painful pimples that can cause scars.

How To Make My Acne Go Away

Acne is the term used by dermatologist to define plugged pores, pimples, or deeper lumps, that occur on the face, back, chest, neck, or shoulders. The severity of acne ranges from mild to severe, encompassing spots of acne to painful nodules and cysts. Acne has many names: pimples, whiteheads, papules, cysts, nodules, and rosacea just to name a few. Statistically, adolescents are the ones in our population affected by acne regardless of sex, race, or ethnicity. In fact, about 80% of all people between the ages of 12 and 17 will develop an occasional pimple or "breakout." However, some of these "breakouts" are much more severe from some than for others.

Acne is usually diagnosed beginning at the age 10, and subsequent diagnosis may persist for decades. For a small percentage, this condition can prove troublesome throughout adulthood, even into the late twenties, thirties, and beyond. Men and women are equally affected by acne. However, men are much more prone to developing more severe forms of acne. They are also less likely to seek medical attention. On the other hand, women may be at a greatest risk for occasional breakouts caused by hormonal changes associated with the application of oil-containing cosmetics and normal menstruation. As we all now, both women and men can have cases of severe acne that, if left untreated, can cause deep facial scarring and emotional distress.

Most of you reading this have some form of acne, and you are looking for a way to get rid of acne for good. As a 15 year acne sufferer myself, I was searching for the 'be all' and 'end all' for acne treatment. But I wanted to find the best ways to treat acne, and it was also important to me to find natural solutions that worked with no side effects. Dermatologists can write a prescription for many different pharmaceutical products that are effective at treating most cases of acne. However, what we have learned is that many of the prescription drugs have side effects, some of which are very serious.

One of the most popular prescribed drugs for treating acne is Accutane. Although it has a pretty high success rate, there are many studies out that now claim Accutane can cause very serious side effects. Many studies are showing that serious symptoms can show up many years after taking Accutane. Some of the possible side effects are: inflammatory bowel disease and rectal bleeding, joint dryness, stunted growth, musculoskeletal injuries, vision damage, liver damage, and severe birth defects. So if you are considering Accutane or other prescription drugs to help get rid of your acne problems please do your own research and understand that serious side effects are very possible.

Through my own research and personal experiences, I learned that the best way to get rid of acne and to keep a glowing complexion is by treating acne from the inside-out, rather than solely from topical chemicals that don’t work and usually cause more harm to the skin. Products that fuel your body with key nutrients that allow the skin to normalize, while promoting a decrease of sebum (oil) production and inflammation are key to successful acne treatments. Acne can really be a nuisance for all of us, and we don't have to be doctors to understand the impact it has on our lives. Most people don't understand why some people get acne more often than others. Having had acne most of my life I wanted to find a simple, effective, yet safe solution to treating my acne that didn't involve harsh chemicals or fragrances that could further irritate my skin.

Personally I am even more delighted to say that this all-natural acne treatment system works! Having tried many 'over the counter' creams and pills, along with several different prescription drugs, all without success, I was finally able to clear my acne. And it's a great feeling knowing I cleared my acne without taking dangerous prescription drugs. I starting seeing results within a few days and my acne was totally cleared up within a few months. Being that I am in my upper 30s and have battled cystic acne for over 20 years, I was not an easy case to treat. The scars left on my face from my teenage years were very noticeable, and I really didn't think anything would ever help. My face is now clear, and my acne scars are gone.

If I would have had this product many years ago I would have saved a lot of money which I spent on worthless products that probably made my acne worse over the years. Plus it would have been nice if I didn't have to go to those embarrassing doctor appointments regarding my acne. I would go to the dermatologist and then go back to school. My friends would ask where I had been, and I was too embarrassed to tell them the truth. Nevertheless, I am thankful to say that I found an all natural acne treatment system that finally get rid of my acne and from what I have recently learned, it is becoming a top choice for many acne sufferers.
