food and hair

food and hair
food to get healthy hair

In brief. Keep her hair is the first proper food "inside" in your diet, excess, provided that the deficiencies threaten the health and therefore the life of your hair. On your table, good diet includes little as possible of foods rich in refined sugars and includes a sufficient intake of proteins, iron, sulfur, zinc and B vitaminsStop refined sugars!
Hair and glycemic indexLimit your intake of foods rich in refined sugars including the glycemic index (GI) is high. This applies primarily sugars, grains and starchy processed industrially (or overcooked), such as white bread, crackers, pasta, pizza, candy, pastries, flour and white sugar, bleached rice, jam, fries, sodas, beer and liquor ... These products are sworn enemies, but sneaky, hair.


Always prefer their products with little or no processed flours and breads, rice or basmati rice, cooked soybeans, grains (full) breakfast, whole cane sugar, chocolate ... These products have a glycemic index lower than the previous ones. Here, for example, 10 common foods:
Peu ou non raffinés
Sucre blanc
Sucre de canne complet
Pommes de terre à l'eau
Pain blanc
Pain complet (type poilâne)
Corn flakes
Céréales Spécial K
Pâtes classiques trop cuites
Pâtes cuites al dente
Riz blanc cuisson rapide
Riz brun complet
Coca cola
70 Jus d'orange pressé 45
Farine blanche
Farine complète
Confiture classique 65
Confiture au fructose
Barres chocolatées
Chocolat noir (> 70% cacao)

ndex glycemic? One thinks first plans anti-diabetes or overweight! Except ... according to recent U.S. research *, a high glycemic index indirectly promotes the secretion of androgen hormones which is why hair, too, are concerned. Products over processed indeed induce a cascade of hormonal reactions harmful to the skin in general (acne teens), and the scalp in particular.
In detail: Their higher rate of sugar passes too quickly into the bloodstream and triggers a surge of insulin, which stimulates the adrenal glands and activates the secretion of adrenal androgens, which, in turn, release of sebum and lead to the formation of sebaceous impurities. These impurities (cell debris fat) are deposited under the scalp, impede the flow of blood to the hair roots and may constrain their development.

secret of youthful skin

secret of youthful skin

"There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
A few years ago a friend suggested I consider Retin-A as an anti-aging lotion. "Why in the world would you use this stuff? You have flawless skin?" I told her. I had always thought of Retin-A as something found only in the medicine cabinets of pimply teens. "Honey," she said, "This is WHY I have flawless skin."

My friend was about a decade older than me -- in her late-30s -- and she wasn't the first flawless-skinned woman I would come to know whose dermatologist prescribed Retin-A as a way to combat fine lines and wrinkles.

Now that I'm in the business of beauty and skincare, I know much more about products that really do turn back time, so to say, and reduce lines and wrinkles.

The Secret to Youth: Collagen

Collagen is the key to healthy skin that tends to age well. The change in the pH level of the skin caused by just a few uses of a retinoid product such as Retin-A or AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) can help generate collagen. "Collagen is the skin's structural fiber," dermatologist Dennis Gross said in the October 2005 issue of O Magazine. "As we get older, it breaks down, creating lines and large pores."

The best way to keep collagen from breaking down is avoiding the sun at all costs. Dermatologists warn that up to 90 percent of wrinkles, dark spots and sun damage are caused by sun exposure. This is why they're always preaching the use of sunscreen . However, if the damage is done, you can try to recoup the gorgeous skin you once had. To find out your best option, read on.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A really cuts down on the wrinkles, perhaps better than any other type of skin product. I would recommend skipping the over-the-counter vitamin A products and consider getting a prescription from your doctor for Retin-A, Renova or Retin-A Micro. These contain the ingredient "tretinoin," which is proven more effective on fine lines and wrinkles than retinol, found in most OTC products.
Keep in mind that you shouldn't expose skin to the sun when using Retin-A, Renova or Retin-A Micro. You'll want to cover up with sunscreen and a hat. Vitamin A makes skin very susceptible to skin damage.


Retinoids are the tamer, non-prescription versions of the vitamin A derivatives listed above. Retinoids contain a less harsh Vitamin A derivative called retinol. These products are less potent and therefore great for weekly upkeep.

Alpha & Beta Hydroxy Acids

AHAs and BHAs are better options for women who find the Vitamin A products dry out their skin. AHAs are acid extracts that tend to be more moisturizing. You'll want to look for products that include glycolic (an acid extract from sugarcane), lactic (milk) or citric (citrus fruits).

choose your right sunglasses

Hummm! make eyes at the sun, see the sunny side of life! The sunglasses have the double advantage of being protective and aesthetic. But be careful all the glasses do not filter the light in the same way. You need to choose knowingly. How to recognize the different lenses? What does UV 400? Should we take 100% UV?
These are questions you should ask yourself before you go in the sun and reads the answers.

100% UV
We do not know enough, but the sun can burn eyes. It must therefore be protected effectively with glasses. It should not be confused with colored glass protective lenses, this is not necessarily the same thing! The best way to find yourself in the maze of sunglasses is to trust the various logos placed on the glasses. Thus, the term "UV 400" means that the lenses filter out UVB rays (which have a shorter wavelength than UVA. They think they are responsible for skin lesions) but not UVA rays (which have wavelength greater than UVB). Only glasses "100% UV" filter UVA and UVB and it is they that we must choose without hesitation. : mirrored
If the glasses have also been treated mirror, they reflect the light completely, thus providing maximum protection. On the aesthetic point of view, processing mirror does not please everyone, so some manufacturers have been subjected to this treatment the side glasses that do not show. On the other hand, you will also find some glasses on a small drawing that represents the sea, sun and mountains, next to the logo 100% UV simply means that you can use these glasses regardless of sunlight being safe to be well protected. Anything but blue
To be avoided unless: the tinted glasses in blue. The blue color is the worst in this area: the glasses are transparent to infra-red, and vision is distorted. Good to know
For the myopic who can not leave their eyeglasses, there is a system that allows the lenses to clip on protective glasses (opticians).

Beachy Waves Haircut

sexy Beachy Waves Haircut

There are some girls who just look better with tousled hair, rather than perfectly straightened, flat-ironed hair and Sienna Miller is one of them. Kate Hudson is another, Jessica Simpson yet another.
To get the beachy, wavy look it helps if your hair has some natural wave to it and this look works on hair of almost any length, even chin-length hair or a bit shorter. For a quick beachy look, let hair air dry, scrunching it as it dries. Once dry, twist pieces around your fingers to create "ropes." Spritz each rope with hairspray.
If you have straight hair, you can get this look with a curly iron and some salt spray. See
