What top derms want you to know about menopause and skin

jhon pablo

Menopause comes with liberating upsides (no more monthly periods) and well-documented downsides (hot flashes and fatigue), but few women are prepared for the ways this natural stage of life impacts their skin. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists defines menopause as the twelve months after ovaries stop producing estrogen (the hormone that helps regulate the menstrual cycle). It can be a problematic time for your skin because estrogen is manna for your complexion: When levels of the hormone decrease, issues like dullness, dryness, and increased sensitivity to damaging UV rays can arise. “As women lose estrogen, their collagen production also decreases,” says dermatologist Howard Murad, MD, founder of the eponymous skincare line, Murad. That means skin can get thinner and start to sag, too.

Although menopause begins, on average, at the age of 51, many of these issues can start even earlier. “As you age, the skin naturally becomes

It’s likely that some of it (okay, probably a lot of it) has to do with good genes, but the actress also credits Elizabeth Arden of which she’s been a model and spokesperson of for years. Her product of choice is their Eight Hour Cream (more on that later). But back to the genes point—Catherine also credits her mom for teaching

NADIA Skin Announces Anti-Aging Breakthrough in Skincare

New Orleans, LA, August 28, 2020 –(PR.com)– A breakthrough treatment in holistic health, integrative medicine and detoxification is now making its way into high-end skincare. Avior Nutritionals has announced the launch of a skincare line specializing in an ingredient previously reserved for clinical settings – NAD+.

NAD+ is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It is responsible for cellular energy, mitochondrial functioning, and DNA repair. Our bodies make NAD+ naturally, but less and less of it as we age. How much less? By age 50, our NAD+ levels are typically half of what they were at age 20. Diminished levels of NAD+ are associated with visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

Avior Nutritionals is the manufacturer of REAL NAD+, a product available only through physicians. After years of case studies where practitioners reported that utilization of NAD+ coincided with improvements in overall health,

“I can’t wait to get started and get this thing over with and go forward,” Rivera said. “I understand the significance of what I’m going to be going through. I understand how tough it’s going to be. Those days that I can be on the field I will be on

Health Beat: Life-changer for Down syndrome: Going beyond skin deep | Health Beat

DENVER – Sam Levin’s energy is infectious. From breakdancing to podcasting to wrestling, Levin is unstoppable.

“I am a top wrestler, and everyone calls me the beast because I am the beast,” said Levin, a Global Down Syndrome Foundation ambassador.

But four years ago, at just 13 years old, Levin was losing his hair.

“Kids were teasing him about it,” shared Levin’s father, Brian Levin.

They tried medications and injections. He has a condition called alopecia areata, where his immune system attacked his hair follicles.

Joaquin Espinosa’s team at the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome has found which part of the immune system is hyperactive and responsible for several painful skin conditions associated with Down syndrome.

“It’s called the interferon response,” explained Espinosa, the institute’s executive director. “It is the aspect of the immune system that we use to fight off viruses, but we use it only when there

New Pen-and-Ink Method Draws Health Sensors Directly on Skin

jhon pablo

A handful of stencils and three pens sound like materials for a child’s art project. But researchers have now used these tools to draw functional heart monitors directly on human skin.

Wearable sensor technology, which helps doctors check a variety of health indicators, has in recent years advanced from bulky devices to flexible patches that stick to people like temporary tattoos. These prefabricated sensors can be expensive, however. They also tend to follow skin contours imperfectly, making them sensitive to the wearer’s motion. Researchers say a new drawn-on-skin electronics system, described in Nature Communications in July, offers a solution to both problems.

A team led by biomedical engineer Faheem Ershad of the University of Houston first developed a conductive ink using silver flakes in a polymer solution that is compatible with human skin. The researchers loaded the ink into modified ballpoint pens, then placed a stencil made of tape on
