How His Skin Problems Led to Health Problems


mnn.com
Let's call him Dale. In college, Dale suffered too much oil on the face. On his way commuting to the U-Belt area from Quezon City, his oily face caught all the dust, germs and pollution in the air---like deadly carbon monoxide from smoke-belching vehicles.

That was his routine daily, morning and afternoon.

He regularly washed his face, but that proved ineffective. Microscopic dirt stubbornly attached themselves in the small corners and pores of his face and soon that created pimples.

The pimples made him lose self confidence, and losing his self confidence gave him a lot of stress. Stress can activate bad chemical reactions (like free radical damage) in the body that can cause inflammation. So Dale's small pimples soon inflamed, thanks to the joint reaction of facial oiliness and too much stress.

The pimples and clogged skin pores around them, plus the inflammation, gave rise to acnes, which later worsened into cystic acne.

If you think that was the worse scenario, think again. Stress from his worse skin condition further triggered more free radical damage so that Dale soon became sickly. He began feeling some heart problems. He even developed anxiety attacks that could have led to much worse health problems if his oily face had not been remedied.

At that time, NLighten Kojic soap was not yet in the market. So he relied on commercial "gentle" soaps. Today, Dale uses NLighten kojic and glutathione soap and swears to feel the big difference. The oiliness of his face is well under control, and for long periods at that---since he used NLighten soap. How he wished the soap had been available in college.


Do you have oily face problems? Don't wait for it to worsen into a health problem. Get rid of skin oiliness with NLighten soap--safe and gentle with kojic, papaya and glutathione extracts. And the best thing is, it's very affordable compared to other skin, pimple or acne lotions or treatments. I know a small bottle of acne lotion that costs P600. NLighten costs much, much lesser.

Consult your derma about it.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
