Anti Rinse Skin Care Cleansers!

Most skin care products contain glycolic acid, retinol, vitamin E that promise to fight ageing, sun damage and protect against the effects of free radicals. However, have you ever realized that all your latest skin care cleansers stay on your skin just for a few seconds before being washed off with water? Cosmetic researchers are investigating whether the anti ageing and sun blocking ingredients in these cleansers can be effective in such a short time.

Glycolic acid removes dead skin, reduces wrinkle lines and lightens complexion. Moreover, as it removes dead skin, it sets the stage for penetration of the skin care moisturizers you apply after the cleansing process. Latest research has shown that leaving your glycolic acid skin care cleanser on your face for a minimum of minute can make the cleansing action more effective.

Vitamin C and retinol is required to remain on your face for a longer time. Research has shown that these ingredients are better off in skin care moisturizers, and not in skin care cleansers.

How about a skin care cleanser that stays on? Yes, something that resists rinsing! But, wouldn’t that result in greasy and sticky skin? Nope! Not with the latest wipes and rinse-resistant formulae that many skin care cleansers claim to have.

You can buy moist face wipes containing retinol and Vitamin C, which do not require rinsing. Therefore the active ingredients remain on your face longer.

Then there are SPF skin care cleansers that allow the active anti aging or sun blocking ingredients to stick to your face, while the other ingredients do the cleansing work. As these produce a mild result, it is recommended to use a good skin care moisturizer afterwards.

Medicaid Kids Lack Dental Care

A new study by the Government Accounting Office has found that children who are covered by Medicaid lack dental care. The study compared the dental health of children covered by Medicaid to that of children covered by private health insurance plans. Six-and-a-half million Medicaid recipients between ages two and 18 had untreated tooth decay. That was double the number of children covered by private health insurance. Only 30% of the 20 million children covered by Medicaid saw dentists over the past year, while over 1.1 million had major dental conditions.

Vitamins, Minerals and Supplements are the Key to a Healthy Life

 The discovery of vitamins as essential balance of the body is relatively recent. We owe our merit especially to the Japanese Umetaro Suzuki who discovered in 1910 vitamin B1 (thiamine) in the hull of a grain of rice. In the early 20th century, we still did not understand very well what role they could play in the organization of the human body. Today, scientists recognize the importance of dietary supplements in the prevention of heart disease, asthma, cancer, memory disorder, premature aging and in many other medical conditions. The following are some of vital supplement that our body needs to function properly, according to several researches on nutrition:

What supplements you should take?

Antioxidants have aroused much enthusiasm – These nutrients protect the body from damage due to “free radicals”, compounds produced by toxins from the environment and the normal mechanisms of the body. Free radicals can damage cells throughout the body. Now days, all medical researchers confirm the benefits of antioxidants on our health, including protection against heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Vitamins C and E, beta-carotene (vitamin A) and selenium are antioxidants on which scientists conduct numerous searches.

Vitamins – The vitamins are absolutely necessary to our body even in small quantities. Besides, with the exception of vitamin D, vitamins can not be synthesized by the body and must be present in our daily food or taking in supplements! We mainly use the range of B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 and B12), vitamin C and vitamin E, without forgetting the vitamin A and vitamin D. In short, when it comes to vitamins, all are useful and indispensable to good functioning of our organism. A lack vitamins may cause more diseases one can imagine.
