    Ointments are typically oil-based. Because they have little or no water or other liquid to evaporate, they tend to feel sticky and greasy and are less pleasant to use.

    Here are the stages of hair growth:

    1. Androgen. This is the growing phase. It can last from months to years depending on the part of the body and genetic influences. The longer the androgen cycle, the longer the hair will grow before it falls out. About 90% of all hair is in this cycle at any...Read More

    Hats are pretty and stylish as well as protective, so get yourself a head-turning collection of hats for every season of the year to ward off the sun’s rays.

Vitamin D is produced in the epidermis when your skin is exposed to the sun. However, you need very little time in the sun, 10 to 15 minutes a day, to create...Read More

    Today’s offerings are comfortable, disposable, and not terribly expensive. You can even get colored lenses if you’d like to “try on” a new eye color, perhaps to go with your newly colored hair or your silver-haired look. Talk about an instant make-over!

Much of these changes are genetic, however for those who go through yo-yo dieting or for those with low body fat, the face can look gaunt and older at a much younger age, leading...Read More
