17 facts and myths about great skin

By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. "Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to working cells throughout the body, including the skin," says dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, author of Simple Skin Beauty: Every Woman's Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin and associate professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. In addition to providing oxygen, blood flow also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells. Contrary to some claims, exercise doesn't detoxify the skin. The job of neutralizing toxins belongs mostly to the  liver. "But by increasing blood flow, a bout of exercise helps flush cellular debris out of the system," Marmur tells WebMD. "You can think of it as cleansing your skin from the inside."

Exercise has also been shown to ease stress. "And by decreasing stress, some conditions that can be exacerbated by stress can show some improvement," says Brian B. Adams, MD, associate professor and director of the Sports Dermatology Clinic at the University of Cincinnati. Conditions that can improve when stress is reduced include acne and  eczema. Although researchers are still investigating the link between stress and skin, studies show that the sebaceous glands, which produce oil in the skin, are influenced by stress hormones. 

I thought of starting this blog post after the following experience. Like how a suggestion from a friend helped me, I wish that this blog post including the comments would be of value to people. Most of the following isn't related to improving facial skin quality (do see the comments below for skin related updates):

I started going to gym in my apartment complex. During evening, I went to salon in my apartment complex. The owner is my friend. I asked about (glycerin + gulab jal + lemon) mix to apply on face for several pimples that have come on my face. He said I should try it. He also said to drink Safi. I said that I'm looking for a new gym since not working out regularly in recent weeks has probably also brought several pimples. He said that why don't I go to the one in my apartment complex. I said that I'll check it out which I did and they've serviced the equipment only a week ago. It's fine and moreover it saves my time a lot which I can use for dance class that I've wanted to join for a long while. Also, I've always wanted to go to gym twice in a day with cardio in morning and weight training in evening which I can try to do now much better.
After checking out the gym, I went to the salon and asked my friend to come along with me to workout on which the person said that the society doesn't allow them for which I felt very upset. I said I would try to speak with society management on which the person said that it has already been discussed. I wish this person can exercise regularly. I'm very thankful to this person for the suggestion. I also keep giving this person my suggestions on marketing and other things. I wish that we can be of value to each other for the long term.

I also spoke to a yoga teacher who had held a class for ladies in the community center. He's trying to setup a power yoga class for males and which I'm looking forward to if the batch can be made.

In conversation with Marvie Ann Beck who is on the onset of launching Naturals Marvie Lounge and Academy."

  • Amazing!! I shopped at easyday and then returned after some minutes to buy pro-biotic yakult milk thinking about my acne. When I picked up yakult from freezer and turned around, there was a girl with several pimples on her cheek. I wish I can contribute to people having acne issues. Due to severe issues, skin problems might also increase in India and that I wish that I can increasingly share things of value for people which I've already started doing on my site.

    Also, just as I again came out of the mall, the dance teacher was also coming out of the mall. He asked me if I can help him find sponsors for his dance show in November in Delhi. I've told him to message his presentation. I wish him best!

  • Try red lipstick!!! Met a friend after a while and she shared to be recovering from typhoid. I said it doesn't seem so and that she looks fine. She said try red lipstick which she had on. She also had pink glasses and black maskara on. I thought that she was wearing more makeup on which she showed that she wasn't. Thank You cosmetic and fashion companies that she just didn't look like she was recovering from typhoid.

    She was also kind enough to share about Isabgul which could help in reducing pimples by clearing the toxins from the intestines. I've known about Isabgul and would have it again. She also said that the antibiotics that she's taking might have cleared her skin because she also faces the pimples issue. Her face was very clear.

    Highly unfortunately, earlier today another friend had shared with me that her father is having serious skin issues because of his medicines. Her father is suffering from a very serious brain disease and I request God to please help him, my friend and her family regarding this which I had thought after my other friend had said that her medicines might be clearing up her pimples.

    I also spoke to another girl today and that with her also we shared about pimples. I wish the best solutions become available for acne. I do think that a healthy and fit lifestyle would help with it. My acne has actually reduced much from before, however, I wish that they're just not there and I'll working for it.

    God, I don't understand because a short while before I started typing this, the final song of Matrix 3 "Asatoma Sat gamaya" started playing and that my playlist setting is to play all songs and that I had started playing music some hours ago since when I had left my place for gym. The song ended a short while ago before I'm completing writing this. Right now, an awesome dubstep song is going on in which a girl says set yourself free!!! I tried looking up its name online by searching "set yourself free" but didn't find the song for sure since I didn't play the video that came up and so opened up iTunes and found its name "Metrik - Freefall (feat. Reija Lee) (xKore Remix)" and it was the first link on Google that I had seen!!! Moreover, now I realize that my play setting is on shuffle and hence few songs after I heard the chant song, I heard this song whereas in iTunes they're in different playlists.

    I wish these girls the best!!!

  • Forget diamonds -- makeup is a girl's best friend. Whether it's covering under-eye circles and blemishes or giving your perfect date outfit a flirty finish, makeup is one of the most reliable tools for helping you look your best. That said, when it's overdone, makeup can look tacky and make you seem older. There's a fine line between just enough and too much makeup. But knowing where that line falls can be tough.

    When in doubt, it's probably in your best interest to err on the side of caution. Too much makeup in the workplace, for example, can detract from your professionalism. It's always better to look classic than unintentionally tacky by over-applying.

    Whether you're just starting out with makeup, looking to revamp your makeup collection or looking for a way to spice up your appearance for a special night, you can learn how to look appropriate and your absolute best at all times.

  • Why night creams always provide best results?

    • Because our cellular regeneration is fastest at night and this is the reason behind the successful night creams. Night creams are made up of water-in-oil base and they contain nourishing ingredients. So every morning you enjoy good supple skin after good 8 hours sleep. The skin absorbs the ingredients at night at the peak level. A good night cream should get absorbed easily by skin and no slippery effect after application. So if your cream is thick just avoid it!
