Taking Care of Your Skin In The Air

flight taking off

Literally and figuratively, flying is a trip. You get up at some ungodly hour in the climate and time zone you’re adapted to, get some air pressurized cabin pumping out some kind of mechanically generated excuse for oxygen, which you inevitably find uncomfortable by the middle of the trip, rise to an unnaturally high altitude, eat processed food, and wake up at a different ungodly hour in a different climate and time zone. If you think this is rough on the mind, just think about your poor skin. The following is a breakdown of exactly what happens to your skin on a flight, and some ways to keep it, and yourself, calm and glowing.

Humidity Factor
One of the main reason’s our skin does not do well on airplanes is because of the dry air in the cabin. According to Melissa Kanchanapoomi Levin, instructor of dermatology at Mount Sinai, “Typically, skin is comfortable when the humidity level is between 40 to 70 percent. Most airplanes are at about 20%. That’s less than half of what we’re used to.” That drop in humidity equals dry red and flaky skin. While you may think a good moisturizer is the best solution, Elizabeth Tanzi, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at George Washingon says, “When there’s no water in the air, moisturizers don’t work as well since there is nothing to grab on to.” Her advice? Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule with the ability to bind to water. Use a small amount of serum containing hyaluronic acid followed by a moisturizer with ceramides. The ceramics will create a barrier to prevent moisture from escaping.

Greasy Skin
When skin dries out, it may try and overcompensate for the dryness by producing too much oil. Make sure to keep skin moist so your skin won’t have to fight the super dry air alone. Blotting papers are a great way to soak up excess oil if the skin does get greasy.

Altitude
Most commercial aircraft become pressurized between 6,000 to 8,000 feet, comparable to what you might experience on the top of a mountain. Kanchanapoomi Levin warns that the increase in altitude means, “less blood flow to the skin, which may make for a dull appearance.”

Water Retention
Sitting still on an airplane for a long time eating salty foods can make the body retain extra water, which can result in bloating and puffiness. Tanzi advises trying to get a little exercise in after you land to get the fluid back in circulation.

Sunscreen
You are closer to the sun, after all. According to Kanachanapoomi Levin, “UV rays are much more intense at higher altitudes, and with thinner air, there is less screening of harmful radiation.” If you’re flying during daylight hours, sunscreen in your carry-on is an absolute must.

Eyes, Nose, Lips, Cuticles
Perhaps one of the reasons airplane food is so notoriously bad has to do with the fact that the crew is counting on your impaired ability to taste properly on a flight. When mucous membranes dry out on a plane, side effects may include not only an impaired sense of taste, but dry lips, nosebleeds, and red itchy eyes. Make sure to keep some Vaseline closely for your nose and lips, and some moisturizing eye drops to keep your eyes refreshed.

Try The “Tissue Test” To Determine Your Skin Type

If you’re trying to choose the best skin care treatment for your skin, whether it be cleansing, moisturizing, or toning, the first step is always the same: determining your skin type. Which should be easy, right? How far off the mark can you be? But truthfully, we’re all a little unsure, and if you’re reluctant to admit confusion, you’re not alone.

You see, as it turns out, determining your skin type can be more difficult than you might think. That’s because skin type changes as you age. Acne-prone teens can grow into adults with dry sensitive skin and clear skinned twenty-somethings can develop breakouts later in life. Heaters, air conditioning, changes in weather and other external factors can also affect skin behavior. If you’re among the many who are not sure which skin type category your fall under, you may want to try the “tissue test” for an accurate read.

The Tissue Test

  1. Cleanse your face. Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face and pat dry. Remove all traces of makeup. This will clear away the daily accumulation of oil and dirt, leaving your skin in the best shape for the test. Be careful to avoid over washing.
  2. Wait an hour. This will give your skin time to return to its most natural state, restoring pH balance after cleansing. Try to avoid touching your face during this time.
  3. Dab your face with tissue.
  4. Pay most attention to your “T-zone,’ the area including the nose and forehead.

Results

Normal Skin
If you have normal skin, your skin will show no oil and no flaking skin, and feel smooth and supple. If you have this, congratulations, this is the most desirable type.

Oily Skin
A greasy tissue means greasy skin. Oily skin is also characterized by large pores and a shiny complexion.

Dry Skin
If your skin feels taut or shows dead skin flakes it means you have dry skin. It is also common for people with this skin types to have small pores. Moisturize, moisturize!

Combination
If your skin shows all three traits of the above type, join the crowd. Combination skin is the most common skin type. Usually, this means the skin in the T-zone is oily, while other parts are normals or dry.

Woman smiling

Skin Problems
In addition to having a “type,” there are two common “problem” categories that your skin can fall under.

Sensitive skin
If your skin reacts easily to regular facial products, developing redness, itchiness, or rashes, your skin is sensitive.

Acne-Prone
Teenager of not, if you see spots, you’ve got acne-prone skin. Look for a good product with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid on the market, or visit a dermatologist for advice.

Vine Vera Helps You Triumph Over Your Winter Beauty Problems – VineVera Reviews

Young woman outdoors in the snowy winter contemplates skincareThe winter doldrums can have you down in the dumps in psychological terms, but your winter beauty problems can wreak havoc in a whole different way. Stress induced by winter beauty problems doesn’t need to have a place in your life. Vine Vera is here to the rescue with some ideas as to how you can overcome your winter beauty maladies once and for all.

 

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

We can’t stress the importance of moisturizing your skin from head to toe enough. Many skin and beauty problems can be eliminated by proper moisturizing of the skin. Find a good facial and body cream and be sure to use them on a daily basis. Keep a good hand cream handy at all times to combat those bouts of dry skin throughout the day. Having a heater on in your home or office can also cause the skin to dry out, and during these cold months, that’s almost a necessity.

 

Drink More Water

This correlates with the moisturizing tip, but we feel it must be said. Be sure to drink enough water every day for overall health – 8-12 glasses is typically normal of what one would require to be properly hydrated. This won’t only help your skin, but it will also improve organ function, hair health, and boost your immune system by cleaning your body of toxins.

 

Pale Skin

When you are faced with the malady of pale winter skin, and you don’t feel as vibrant as you did in the days of summer, there are ways to combat that issue by subscribing to a tanning salon, getting a spray tan, or using a home tanning spray or lotion. You could also intensify your look and give temporary color to your skin by using a bronzing palette and dusting it on with a kabuki brush on your face, chest and neck area to give you a boost of glowing color.

 

Dry, Brittle Nails

Dry nails can become brittle, cracked, and ridged during the winter months. You can combat this by applying cuticle oil to the nail and cuticle every day, one to two times per day, or using olive oil as a substitute for cuticle oil. Simply rub some into the nail and nail bed. If you need to, get a buffing block and buff the ridges out of your nails gently to restore a smooth, healthy look.

 

Chapped Lips

Using lip balm isn’t always enough to combat dry, chapped lips. Some people get chapped lips so bad during the winter months that they crack and bleed. Other times, they get flaky and burn. Wind burn and sun burned lips are also possible, even in the winter. There are some things you can do aside from using lip balm on your lips, such as applying a natural oil such as olive oil, vitamin E oil, or cocoa butter to your lips. You could also use facial moisturizer on your lips, as long as it’s a gentle moisturizer. Another home remedy is to apply milk to the lips to offer a cooling sensation, and the proteins in the milk help to soothe the burn. As a last resort, use Vaseline on your lips to give your lips a healthy feel and promote and aid in healing.

Vine Vera Helps You Face Your Skin Care Fears! – VineVera Reviews

Young woman hiding from her fears behind her handsIn lieu of National Face Your Fears Day, Vine Vera would like to bring you some tips on facing your skin care fears. There isn’t always a definitive answer as to how one might go about facing certain fears, as everyone is different. However; it’s safe to say this article from Vine Vera should help you to get a grasp on the major skin care related fears, and help to put your mind at ease one way or another.

Dry Skin
Dealing with your dry skin fears is one of the easiest things you can do and it doesn’t require too much time or preparation. Investing in a good quality moisturizer is important, as well as getting a few facial loofah’s and perhaps some serums. Taking proper care of your face is essential to combating dry skin, and overcoming it. Drinking more water and perhaps taking some Vitamin E supplements as well as a Biotin supplement is also a great way to help restore the balance to your dry facial skin, and give it a more nourished, supple look.

Acne Prone Skin
If you have skin that is prone to breakouts, whether it’s one time a month or you have chronic acne breakouts, there are ways to attempt treatment at home, or ways to combat the problem with the help of a dermatologist. You can buy specialty face washes and toners from Vine Vera that are specifically meant for acne prone skin, as well as serums and gels in which you can use to treat the problem as well. Dermatologists have specialty lines of products in which you can use to alleviate symptoms and help the skin to clear up. You can also be sure to get in the habit of proper face washing at least twice per day with a medicated face wash. Aside from these options, you can also check with your gynecologist to perhaps get on a method of birth control which can balance your hormones if it is caused to a hormonal imbalance. Sometimes, this is a simple and quick fix to the problem and many women have had a lot of success with it.

Oily Skin
If you have oily skin, washing your face two to three times per day with a specialty product formulated for oily or greasy skin is a great place to start. Try to refrain from using moisturizers as these generally make greasy and oily skin even greasier and more oily, causing more problems. Controlling the oil on your face can also prevent breakouts and give your face a healthy appearance. Watching what you eat is also important as different foods can tend to cause your skin to become oily, and for someone who already has oily skin, this will make their problem increasingly worse.

Blotchy Skin
Blotchy skin can be quickly fixed with good cosmetics to hide the uneven tone. A good cover up and foundation as well as makeup palate and perhaps color corrector stick can also provide even, smooth coverage and give you a flawless finish. Give a few top brands a try and find one that works best for you.

There are many other skin problems and fears women will face each day; these are just a few of the major problems afflicting women in their day to day lives. Skin conditions and problematic skin don’t have to rule your world. Combat your skin care fears by educating yourself and being proactive. VineVera believes every woman deserves to have healthy, beautiful skin, and we hope you will take a stand to face your skin care fears today!

Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis Pilaris refers to a common skin disorder that affects people of all ages. The disease presents itself as rough red colored bumps close to the hair follicles on your legs, buttocks, cheeks and arms. Most people who develop this disease remain unaware that it is completely harmless and it can easily be cured. Moreover, it is a common occurrence among healthy people as well. The only problem with Keratosis Pilaris is that it can be cosmetically displeasing.

Keratosis Pilaris is known to affect 40% adults and 50 – 80% of adolescents. In fact, most people who develop Keratosis Pilaris remain unaware of the designated medical term for the disease and mistake it for rashes of some kind. Doctors describe Keratosis Pilaris as a disease that occurs between childhood and adolescence. It might become quite exaggerated during puberty, but it decreases with age.

Those suffering from Keratosis Pilaris are likely to experience seasonal variations with the disease. It might improve during the summer months and the lack of humidity and resultant dry skin might make it worse. The disease is generally limited to single sandpaper type bumps that resemble goose flesh. These bumps might cause scarring or become inflamed in some cases as well.

Who contracts Keratosis Pilaris?

Keratosis Pilaris can be contracted by anyone. Even though it is more common among children and adolescents, the condition can be seen in a number of adults as well. However, females are known to be more frequently affected when compared to men. It is also seen that a large percentage of patients suffering from Keratosis Pilaris have other family members who have the same condition as well.

Signs and Symptoms

Some of the main symptoms of Keratosis Pilaris are –

  • Red or white bumps on your cheeks, arms, legs or buttocks.
  • Worsened condition during the winter months or when you suffer from dry skin
  • Rough and itchy areas on your skin.

Skin with Keratosis Pilaris

When should you see a doctor

In most cases, Keratosis Pilaris never becomes a serious medical condition and seeing a doctor is not necessary. However, if you’re more concerned about the cosmetic appearance and your looks, you can consult your family physician or dermatologist for a diagnosis

What are the main causes of Keratosis Pilaris?

Keratosis Pilaris is generally known to be a result of Keratin in your skin. Keratin is a hard protein that helps to protect your skin from infection and harmful substances. It forms scaly plugs to block the opening of your hair follicles that ultimately results in Keratosis Pilaris. The exact reasons behind the build up of Keratin is presently unknown. However, it is known to occur due to genetic conditions or skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis.

How to cure Keratosis Pilaris?

There is no known cure for Keratosis Pilaris. It is a harmless disease that automatically goes away over time. However, you can treat the disease to improve your cosmetic looks. There are two ways to treat Keratosis Pilaris – direct skin treatments and indirect skin treatments.

1. Treating your skin directly – Direct skin treatments can be done using moisturizers, oils and exfoliation.Bottles of moisturizers and oils

  • Moisturizers are considered to be one of the best ways of treating Keratosis Pilaris. There are several types of moisturizers that you can use to treat your condition. Try out a moisturizer that contains lactic acid. Lactic acid can help you to break up the keratin that has clogged up your pores to cause those bumps. You can also try out topical retinoids. These lotions use a variety of Vitamin A that helps to reduce symptoms of Keratosis Pilaris. Urea cream is another option that can be used. However, make sure that you wash your hands after applying the cream. Finally, a moisturizer that contains glycolic acid should also help in dissolving the buildup in your hair follicles.
  • Oils function in the same way as moisturizers and they can work to soften the keratin in your skin. There a several types of oils that can be used on your skin to treat Keratosis Pilaris. You can try out using coconut oil. Another option is to rub pure Vitamin E oil onto your skin. Both Vitamin E oils and coconut oils can soften your skin and help to reduce Keratosis Pilaris.
  • Exfoliation is another way of treating Keratosis Pilaris. Softening your skin using moisturizers and oils is considered to be the best way to reduce Keratosis Pilaris, but you can actually speed up the process by exfoliating your skin and helping to improve its condition. Look for products containing alpha-hydroxy acids, lactic acid, salicylic acid or urea for most effectiveness.

 2. Treating your skin indirectly – There are a number of ways to treat your skin indirectly.Humidified emitting steam

  • Oatmeal baths can help you hydrate and smooth your skin. Take an oatmeal bath once every week for best results.
  •  Humidifiers are another option. If you live in an area that is known to be dry, you are bound to have extra sensitive skin. In all such cases, a humidifier can go a long way in offering a solution. This machine helps to add moisture into the air and allows your skin to remain soft. Make sure that you use distilled water as the tap water can contain chlorine, nitrate or lead.
  •  Cold and dry weather conditions can dry out your skin and make it extremely rough. Those suffering from Keratosis Pilaris are likely to suffer even more. Make sure that you moisturize your skin twice every day to combat the cold and dry weathers and their effects on your skin.
  •  Sunshine is an excellent medium of reducing Keratosis Pilaris. The main reason why the disease is less noticeable in the summer months is because spending time outdoors gives your body a hormonal boost and helps in removing dead cells from your skin. However, don’t forget to wear sunscreen before heading outside. You would also be wise not to stay under the sun for a long period of time.
  •  Avoid hot water baths as much as possible. Hot water baths can dry out your skin and make it lose a lot of moisture. Warm baths and cold showers are ok, but try to refrain from having hot baths.

Caring for Dry Skin

Dry skin can be extremely uncomfortable and it can also go a long way in ruining the way you look as it leads to fissures and cracks in the skin. Dry skin can result out of a number of causes. It could be hereditary or it could be due to the low humidity levels that prevail during the winter months. Dry skin is also known to come along with medical conditions such as thyroid or asthma and aging. Those suffering from dry skin need to understand that common habits such as scrubbing, washing hands with harsh soaps and using harsh cleansing agents can actually do a lot of harm. It is important to ensure that you refrain from all such products and follow a few simple steps to get back your smooth and beautiful looking skin.

Young woman bathing in tubWhat to Do While Bathing
Make sure that you don’t take a long and hot shower. Hot water can strip away essential oils from your skin and staying for long under a hot shower can truly worsen your condition. Make sure that you stay for 5 – 10 minutes under warm water every day and try to stay away from hot water completely. It also helps to use gentle cleansers or shower gels instead of those harsh soaps. Furthermore, don’t forget to moisturize while your skin is still moist.

Cleanse Gently
Using gentle soaps to cleanse your body is an excellent solution for those suffering with dry skin. Products that have antibacterial additives and deodorants can actually be really harsh on the skin. It also helps to use  cleansers that include ceramides. These ceramides help to keep the moisture within your skin. According to dermatologists, you should always use neutral – pH products and non detergent cleansers to cleanse your skin. This means that if you’re suffering from dry skin, you need to avoid commercial soaps completely.

Exfoliate 
Exfoliation allows you to get rid of your dead skin cells and allow you healthier skin to take their place. Exfoliation is extremely important for any skin care routine and you should always use salt or sugar scrubs while showering. Exfoliation also helps to make the moisturizing process more effective.

Choose the Perfect Moisturizer
You don’t need to spend a bomb on moisturizers to get something that suits your skin. All you need to do is to check the ingredients on the label for ceramides, glycerin and Dimethicone, Mineral oil and petroleum jelly or Hyaluronic acid. Ceramides, glycerin and Dimethicone can help your skin to retain its moisture content. Similarly, hyaloronic acid allows your skin to hold water while mineral oils and petroleum jelly ensure that you lose less moisture while having a bath. Don’t forget to apply a sunscreen that offers SPF 30 protection.

Jug of Olive Oil with OlivesDab on Olive Oil
If you’re one of those who prefer to have natural skin care strategies at your disposal, try using olive oil as a skin care solution. Anyone who has used olive oil for their skin would swear by the fact that it is one of the best multitaskers available. It can work wonders on your hands and elbows, help to groom the cuticles, remove makeup, smoothen your skin and take care of your dry skin as well. It also contains fatty acids and antioxidants that rejuvenate your skin and help it to look younger and feel fresher.

Sun Protection 
Protect your skin from sun damage at all times. The harmful rays of the sun are considered to be one of the main reasons behind wrinkles, dry skin and roughness. You should always wear a sunscreen with SPF 30 at all times and try to dress in layers to prevent perspiration and overheating. Apply an SPF 15 sunscreen on your lips as well as it can help you protect your lips from becoming chapped and dry. Wide brimmed hats and sunglasses are excellent additions to your sun protection regimes as well.

Treat Your Skin From the Inside
Treating your skin problems from the outside isn’t going to be enough. You need to make sure that you address the issues on the inside as well. Maintain a balanced diet that offers a rich source of fatty acids, magnesium, Vitamin C and beta carotene. Some of the food items that help your skin are oranges, mangoes, carrots and salmon.

Maintain Skin in Winter
If you’re suffering from dry skin, it might end up taking a beating during those winter months. The biggest problem with winters is the low moisture content that seems to aggravate skin problems and increase the dry skin on your body. To ensure that you remain protected during the winter make sure that you drink a lot of water and stay outdoors for as little time as possible. It also helps to wash and moisturize your skin in the mornings and then re-moisturize them at night.

Don’t apply heavy creams around your eyes. The area around your eyes is known to be extremely sensitive and applying heavy cream will cause your skin to puff up. This can ultimately lead to sagging skin. Make sure that you use gels or formulated eye creams only.

Following these simple tips on a regular basis can help you get rid of your dry skin issues once and for all. No skin care routine can be successful without some amounts of self constraint and discipline. So even though it might seem to be a pain, you need to ensure that you follow these practices day in and day out to maintain younger looking and healthy skin.

The Causes of Perpetually Dry Skin

As frustrating and irritating as it can be, dry skin is actually one of the simplest skin issues that you can resolve. However, before you get into expensive skin treatments or purchasing many different types of skin care creams and moisturizers, it is important to understand the reasons behind skin issues. Dry skin can have a number of forms – itchy red blotches, cracked skin or flaky patches.  Irrespective of the type of problem your faced with you, it is quite easy to determine the reason behind your dry skin and prevent it from affecting your looks. The first and foremost aspect that you need to understand when looking into the causes of perpetually dry skin is that there is no one reason for dry skin. There could be a number of internal and external factors that work in tandem to leave your skin pale and dry. Some of the most common issues that affect your skin are allergies, climatic conditions, age, health and your genetics. Read on to check out the causes of perpetually dry skin and learn how to get rid of your skin issues.

Soap barsHarsh Soaps

Most people don’t understand the importance of using the right kind of soaps while bathing. Yes, the advertisements showing women boasting silky soft skin might be enticing, but the concept many soaps do not do what they advertise. Soaps can remove oils from the skin and therefore scrubbing your skin a lot with soap can lead to the loss of oils and moisture which ultimately results in dryer skin. It is vital to choose a cleanser formulated with the right PH for your skin. Dry skin usually means your skin PH is too high or alkaline. Look for a more acidic cleanser to counteract this. You may have seen milk cleansers being offered for dry skin, this is a great option because the slightly acidic PH of milk helps balance out the alkaline PH of dry skin.

Long and Cozy Showers or Baths

You might have experienced dried or tight skin when you get out of a long shower. This is because prolonged exposure to hot water can reduce the natural oils which help to protect your skin. The best way to prevent the loss of these oils is to ensure that you always choose a shower over a bath. Another solution is to limit the exposure of your skin to hot water. If you simply cannot live without baths, bathe in lukewarm water instead of scalding hot.

 

Young woman holding bottles of moisturizersMisusing Moisturizers

Anyone suffering from dry skin is likely to have tried a couple dozen moisturizers over the years. However, even though these moisturizers can be an extremely important part of your skin care regime, misusing them can lead to more harm than good. For example, most people who use these moisturizers use them after thoroughly drying their skin. Moisturizers should always be used when your skin is still damp. It is also important to understand what type of moisturizer to use. The mild ones that do not contain any sort of alcohol or perfumes are known to be best for those suffering from dry skin. Secondly, same as your cleanser it is important that your moisturizer has the right PH balance for your skin. Research your moisturizer online to find out its PH or check out the test kits that many drugstores now offer for this purpose.

Heating or Air Conditioning

Another problem that people face is that they spend a lot of time indoors and are largely dependent on indoor heating or air conditioning. This air can not only lead to dry skin, but it also dries out the mucous membranes that ultimately lead to hoarseness in your throat, chapped lips or dry noses.  The best solution is to set the heat or AC to the lowest possible setting and use a humidifier, particularly during the nighttime.

Aging

Your skin is known to lose vital nutrients as your body becomes older. Therefore, it becomes essential to make sure that you assist your aging skin with the right kind of anti-aging products. Serums can help you rejuvenate your skin by repairing the damaged DNA and protecting against free radicals. There is a laundry list of things you can do to reduce the appearance and effects of aging on the skin but we will save that for its own post!

 

Young woman outside in snowy cold weatherCold Winters

The moment temperatures begin to drop in your city, you should prepare yourself for the onslaught of dry and parched skin. This primarily due to the fact that the humidity levels also drop along with the temperature. According to Linda Stein, a clinical research director at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, the winter temperature is known to be the most common cause of dry skin. The best way to combat dry skin during winters is to get a humidifier installed in your home so that the air remains moist. It helps to protect the sensitive areas of your skin with gloves and scarves when you go out during the winters. It is also highly advised to switch up your skin care routine seasonally, for winter you will want to use heavier moisturizers.

Rough Rub Downs

You don’t really need to scrub your skin with all your might in order to clean it. This age old belief is completely false and you actually end up damaging your skin by doing so. According to Nanette Silverberg, a dermatology professor at the Columbia University, the friction leads to stripping of the skin and makes it rougher and drier.

Excessive Washing

Over-washing is considered to be another problem that is common among people. Most hygiene conscious people tend to wash their hands a lot and this can lead to skin issues such as hand dermatitis. This can be caused by the water or the soap or by both. It always helps to reduce the exposure that your hands are subjected to by wearing gloves while cooking or washing dishes and avoiding harsh soaps which are known to have antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. Limit yourself to cleansing your face once, or tops twice, a day and do it for less than a minute.

Young woman swimming under waterSwimming

Swimming might be excellent for your health and your fitness, but it can really take a toll on your hair and your skin. Contrary to popular belief, its not the chlorine (overly chlorinated swimming pools excluded) that affects your skin as much as the longer exposure to water does. Being in the pool for long hours, your skin loses its oily layer that is in charge of locking in the moisture. As a result, you are subject to dry skin. The best solution for this problem is to have a thorough shower after swimming and use an excellent moisturizing lotion immediately after the shower.

Skin Conditions

Those suffering from preexisting skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis can also face problems such as dry skin. You should always ensure that you visit a dermatologist if you face rashes and dry skin often, to better understand the issues with your skin and implement proper skin care treatments.

Having perpetually dry skin can be frustrating. Many people go through many years of searching for the best cures for their dry skin. We hope our article helps you toward a path of quenched skin. Let us know which tips you found most helpful in the comments!
