Removing Blackheads Is the Very First Step to Prevent Acne.

I have more than 20 years of practice in healing acne and dealing with acne, oily skin, blackheads and white heads. If it comes to removing blackheads I have never experienced any results from creams, lotions, salicylic acid, glycolic acid ,benzol peroxide,different types of scrubs, microdermabrasion etc. There is no product on the market which would remove the sebum from the whole pore. The sebum is produced by the oil gland and over time becomes a blackhead (due to chemical reaction with the oxygen, not because  it is dirty) and the only way to remove that blackhead is the mechanical way.

Do Not Settle For Less!

Recently I spoke to my friend about her experience at a big spa where she went for a relaxing massage she received as a gift from her daughter.

Let me share with you what I’ve learned from Cathy Gulli’s article “Enough with drinking water” in Lifestyle.

Susan Barr, the professor of nutrition at the University of British Columbia has very strong opinion that it is a myth that in order to hydrate ourselves we need  to drink plain water . All kind of fluids count – juice, pop, beer, coffee, tea, soup. The water is also  in chicken, other meat, bread, fruits.
We should stop choking down 8 glasses of water as we are told to and start to take much more individualized approach to hydration. We are not the same, how much water we need depends on our diet, level of activities, how hot our environment is, our size and our health issue, not to mentioned personal preferences.
