Below, top dermatologists reveal the five superstar ingredients your skin needs to look its best. Alpha Hydroxy Acids
Typically, healthy skin is also well buffed from exfoliation, which helps remove dead skin cells and ushers new ones to the surface. Dermatologists recommend using a form of alpha hydroxy acid because it encourages exfoliation and “stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, which strengthen the skin,” says Jennifer Linder, MD, an assistant professor of dermatology at the University of California at San Francisco.

Niacin-Part 2

Niacin – Part 2 By: Dorine Lam, RD, MS, MPH
www.DrLam.com Niacin as a detoxifying agent There are several more methods that can be used for detoxifying yourself from the buildup of toxins in the body, ranging from enemas to fasting and saunas. Within any method that you choose, the use of niacin can accelerate the detoxification process by rupturing the fat cells (lipolysis) that store the toxins, and thereby releasing them for elimination. Generally, one would start with a low dose of niacin (the plain niacin that causes flushing), 50 milligrams or so depending on the individual’s level of tolerance, and gradually building to a maximum of 500 milligrams. Higher doses have been used for those who are gravely ill from drug use or chemical toxins. The level of tolerance is determined by how intensely (that is, the duration) the flushing persists in the individual. The toxins that are released from the fat cells by the niacin need to be quickly eliminated from the body, or it may cause se…

8 Foods That Make Your Hair Grow

Here are eight foods that make your hair grow, recommended by Harvard and Yale Medical School-trained nutritionist Jayson Calton, PhD, and licensed nutritionist and fitness chef Mira Calton, CN.

1. Salmon: This fish is loaded with the strong hair supporters like Vitamin D and protein, but it also contains omega-3 fatty acids that promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy. 2. Yellow Peppers: Yellow bell peppers have nearly five and a half times more vitamin C than oranges (341 milligrams, as opposed to 63). This is good news for your locks since vitamin C is an antioxidant that strengthens the hair shaft and hair follicles, as well as prevents breakage. 3. Oysters: Zinc deficiency has been noted to cause hair loss and poor scalp conditions and oysters are loaded with zinc — just three ounces contain 493 percent of your daily value. But not just any oysters will do: Steer clear of the ones caught in the Gulf of Mexico, which may contain unusually high levels of Cadmium due to t…

Photo: ImaxTree Juicing is the healthy craze that just won’t die, and for good reason: While an all-juice diet may not be something we necessarily recommend, adding fruit and vegetable juices to your daily routine is a great way to fit more vitamins and nutrients into your diet than ever before. The other upside, of course, is the physical benefits. Juicing is perfect for getting all the ingredients you need to target your most troublesome skin concerns all in one place. Whether you’re breaking out or suffering from signs of premature aging, here’s what you need to drink to get your skin back in shape. For Breakouts
Dark, leafy greens are essential for any healthy diet, but they’re particularly useful for fighting acne, because they’re full of carotenoids and beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A. In fact, high concentrations of vitamin A are the active ingredient in acne treatments like Accutane and Retin-A. The ascorbic acid in lemon juice, a natural astringent, is al…
