Use night-time creams

The so-called products have in common are active principles in higher concentration, in addition to agents that are often photosensitizing, ie can not be exposed to the sun at the time of use.

Dry weather

In dry climate regions, the air humidifier can be an ally of health, especially during sleep; when you can not wash your face, for example. The device takes care of the skin, breathing and relieves the nasal passages.

Avoid sleeping as soon as you eat.

The food needs to be correct before bed. Take two hours after the last meal of the day before bedtime and hold the line with sugar because the ingestion of too many carbohydrates or sugars releases insulin, and it interferes with hormones that cause inflammation.


Main care with the skin before bed is cleaning. The soap, however good, is not enough. To remove all of the scrubs from your makeup, use a good make-up remover or a facial tonic. So folks, as you can tell, the pimples are attached directly to your food. Either way, it’s worth keeping an eye out and preventing them from showing up, anywhere.

Allergy to costume jewelry: how to identify and treat

Costumes are props that complement the look and can be true jokers.
However, if on the one hand these pieces contribute to make people more elegant. In some cases, jewelry can also cause an allergic reaction, causing health and aesthetic risks. Many of these accessories, among others, have nickel in their composition, being this the villain of history, because it is one of the substances that causes allergy. This allergic condition may appear early, if it is a genetic problem, or arise over time. Those who have this problem, however, should not insist on using accessories that give reactions, as warned the dermatologist Márcia Purceli, because in addition to itching, they may even create inflammatory processes.

How is the treatment done?
The main measure, which should be immediate, is to suspend skin contact with pieces containing nickel. It is also necessary to hydrate the region a lot. In the crisis phases, corticosteroid creams can be used to soothe the skin or repair the skin barrier. In addition, thermal water and cold water packs are important to relieve symptoms. It is recommended:

Wash the area with copious cold water

Pass a cream with antihistamine or corticoid at the site of allergy until symptoms improve;
Take an antihistamine, such as cetirizine, as long as prescribed by the doctor to control the symptoms faster.

Any material can cause allergy, it greatly depends on person to person. But some substances have a higher degree of skin rejection, such as nickel, zinc, chromium and copper. However, others, such as gold and silver, are less likely to react.
When a person wears a ring, bracelet, necklace or piercing at the site of skin contact may arise:
Acute phase: redness, edema, vesicles (small blisters) and itching
Sub-acute phase: exudative lesions, due to rupture of vesicles with formation of crusts. The eczema appears

The initial symptoms develop between six and twenty-four hours after wearing the costume jewelry. Once the allergic reaction occurs, it can last for a few days or even weeks. Allergies of this type appear in both men and women, although the latter suffer more by using different jewelry continuously.

Its effects, however, are not permanent. Therefore, the plastic surgeon must be very careful and choose the most appropriate treatment. It is also necessary to offer the patient the real expectations of results. All this can be achieved if you have a medical indication for facial filling with hyaluronic acid, the best material for the procedure because it is malleable and biocompatible, that is, a molecule made in the laboratory, but with a substance that the body does not recognize as strange, because is present in our skin.

To prolong

Adopt good habits: in addition to the skin routine, it is necessary to adopt a diet and give up bad habits. Sugar, for example, can cause glycation, which is when excess glucose in the blood binds to proteins such as collagen. When this binding happens, the protein loses its function and, as a result, there is the appearance of wrinkles.

Except in restricted use for AIDS patients the use of methacrylate may be used. A large number of other synthetic fillers are available in various parts of the world. It is difficult to comment on the efficacy and safety of these products. Since results of clinical trials have not been reported in the literature.
