How Ceramide Prevents Skin Dryness, Irritation and Wrinkles

You see, it's fun being a blogger because you learn lots of new things as you research. Like this skin fat called ceramide. Did you know that enough of ceramides in your skin prevents skin dryness, irritation and wrinkles? Because clinical studies reveal that when ceramide levels in your skin fall, your skin begins to dry up and be easily damaged.

If I had known this in college I would have been saved from lots of skin irritations and problems. But there was no internet yet and Google hadn't been born. So what happened was I went to this medical doctor who prescribed a skin product with steroids, and the rest is (sad) history.

Anyway (sob), ceramide is naturally found in the outer layer of the skin and helps it retain moisture. And moisture helps protect our skin a lot. Ceramides are skin lipids (fats) that keep skin structure intact. In other words, they "glue" surface skin cells so they're closely knit. That results to smooth, velvety skin with small skin pores.

Without ceramides, surface skin becomes vulnerable to infections, germs, irritants, chemicals, the negative effects of sudden environmental changes, and easily affected by aging. That's bad news especially for sensitive skin. What's needed is replenishment of ceramides so that skin retains its natural protective moisture and skin pores are mended to prevent being compromised. Healthy skin pores prevent pimples and acnes.

Though ceramides are naturally existing in the skin and spinal marrow, they can also be derived from plants. Spinach, soy, rice and wheat are good examples of these sources. Coming from plants, they are called phytoceramides. They can replace displaced skin ceramides.

But where do we get phytoceramides or ceramide replenishment?

The good news is, Veron Cell contains enough ceramides that reinforce your skin's ceramide supply.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

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…
