Everything to Know About Inflamm-aging – NewBeauty Magazine

By daniellenierenberg

Chronic inflammation in the body is linked to cancer, heart disease, diabetes and more, and recently, scientists have discovered that inflammation is also one of the main culprits of skin aging.But what causes it and how do we stop it from getting worse? Weve got the answers below.

Why Inflammation OccursAccording to San Diego, CA dermatologist Zenovia Gabriel, MD, in the body, inflammation stems from an increase in oxygen free radicals that subsequently lead to a cascade of downstream cellular effects. The toxic oxygen radicals trigger inflammatory signals that lead to a host of negative cellular responses, she explains. Skin inflammation is a result of the immune systems response to stimuli or triggers, serving as a defense mechanism to protect your body against injury, infection or cancer.

There are two types of skin inflammation: acute and chronic. Acute inflammation is your bodys immediate response to a physiological insult such as an infection, trauma, stressanything that disrupts your immune system, says Dr. Zenovia. The body expresses inflammation by tissue swelling, warmth, pain or redness, as well as systemic symptoms like fever, aches and fatigue.

Acute inflammatory symptoms generally minimize after several days and eventually normalize, but chronic inflammation implies a longstanding issue that Dr. Zenovia says is often caused by underlying conditions such as autoimmune disorders or chronic infections. Chronic inflammation can be worsened by environmental stressors or unhealthy lifestyle habits, she adds. As we age, our bodies become less efficient at managing the inflammatory response. In addition, chronic low-grade inflammation is common as we age because our bodies and cells are less efficient at regulating this process.

Our diets play a role, too: High blood sugar and poor diet can result in a process called glycation. This leads to protein malfunction in the cells, causing a disruption to normal function, says Dr. Zenovia. In effect, if your body is inflamed and cant handle the level of inflammation, then there are consequences at the cellular and then tissue levelsthis is what we see and feel. We see the cellular disruption manifested on our skin. And these symptoms, such as sagging, wrinkles and brown spots, are all manifestation of cellular disruption and inflammation.

How It Impacts Our SkinThe process is coined inflamm-aging because inflammation ages us, says Dr. Zenovia. Acute inflammation can manifest on the skin as a rashsmooth or scalyredness or warmth in the affected area. Mild low-grade chronic inflammation, such as rosacea or undetectable sun damage often causes skin dryness, dullness, uneven tone, texture, loss of elasticity, or fine lines and wrinkles.Therefore, antioxidants and other actives that specifically target inflammation in the skin are a new frontier for anti-aging. Its not just moisturizers, retinols and hydroxy acidswe need anti-inflammatory support for our skin too.

That undetectable sun damage plays a significant role in the inflammation process. Inflammation is thought to be one of the main causes of skin aging, and the constant exposure to UV radiation from the sun can cause inflammation and DNA damage in the skin, leading to fine lines, wrinkles and spots, says Fort Lauderdale, FL dermatologist Dr. Matthew J. Elias.The single most important product we recommend for skin aging is sunscreen, and while any sunscreen will help protect skin from the untoward effects of chronic UV exposure, the only sunscreen that can actually repair the DNA damage done by the sun is ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica, which actually contains DNA repairsomes that can repair the damage caused by the sun and lessen inflammation.

Dr. Zenovia says an inflammatory cascade can also cause the body to produce more hyaluronidase, the enzyme responsible for breaking down hyaluronic acid (HA), which is critical to skin thickness and health. Fibroblastscollagen-producing cellsare also affected by inflammation, and can become damaged and produce less collagen, she explains. This causes skin to lose its firmness and elasticity.

How to Minimize the EffectsThe first brand to put inflamm-aging skin care on the map, Heraux created a patented molecule called HX-1 that gently exfoliates the skin while helping to prevent inflammation, which is the key ingredient in its Molecular Anti-Inflammaging Serum. HX-1 works directly on skin stem cells to support their peak performance and shield them from stressors that can promote irritation, says Ben Van Handel, PhD, cofounder of Heraux and stem cell biologist at the University of Southern California. Clinical studies of HX-1 have shown significant improvements occurringin the first four weeks without any skin irritation. Daily use of the serum will enable youthful function of skin stem cells longer, increasing the health span of the skin.

Dr. Amir Nobakht, cofounder of Heraux, says its an alternative to retinol without the potential side effects. Retinols historically have had good results but also cause irritation, redness and sun sensitivity, making them unusable for many people. HX-1 on the other hand can accomplish the same goals of a retinol without the harsh side effects. Even those with sensitive skin or who are prone to sunburns can get results without worrying.

One of Dr. Zenovias bestsellers in her Essentials line, Inflam-Aging Night Repair Treatment specifically targets inflammation and is clinically formulated to combat key signs of aging. Everyone could benefit from this product: acne, aging, young and old, she says. This powerhouse night repair treatment features a highly potent triple antioxidant blend of green tea polyphenols, medical-grade resveratrol and caffeine to help reduce inflammation while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhancing the look of firm, plump, even-toned skin. Sleep is also really important. Its one of the most restorative things we can do for our bodies and our skin. It decreases stress, lowers inflammation and regenerates our cells.

‘This is why I’m here’: A Detroit Lions VP tries to save her daughter from rare disease – ESPN

By daniellenierenberg

Detroit Lions senior VP of business development Kelly Kozole works with her daughter, Morgan, who has a rare neurological disorder called beta-propeller protein-associated neurodegeneration, or BPAN.Michael Rothstein

TROY, Mich. -- Wearing a white T-shirt with a massive star in sparkling shades of pink, yellow and seafoam green on the front, Morgan Kozole sits in front of a fold-up chalkboard in the living room of her family's Detroit-area home and starts to draw.

Using pink and yellow chalk, she sketches Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The Disney characters are dominant fixtures in the 5-year-old's life and therefore become a soundtrack for the Kozole family: Morgan constantly saying "Mickey," with her long, blond ponytail bouncing to whatever song happens to be playing on the Mickey Mouse Club.

"These are the two Mickeys," Morgan says, pointing to the chalkboard. Her mother, Detroit Lions senior vice president of business development Kelly Kozole, explains that this is her way of communicating that she would like a visitor to draw Mickey too. If it's close, Morgan accepts it. Another Mickey to fawn over.

For Morgan's birthday earlier this year, the family went to Disney World. On this trip, the Kozoles saw what they had longed for: the potential of progress.

"She knew where we were. She knew Mickey Mouse," Kelly said. "Before, she wouldn't go to the characters, and now she's jumping up and down, hugging. She really, along those lines, is also really into birthdays.

2 Related

"The 'Happy Birthday' song. Before that, she was just kind of looking. Sometimes it was too much for her with everyone singing -- sometimes loud noises are too much. This year, we had to sing 'Happy Birthday' to her three times."

Birthdays, for children, are happy occasions -- reasons for grand celebrations of progress toward adulthood. For the rest of Morgan's family it is more complicated.

Morgan has a rare neurological disease called beta-propeller protein-associated neurodegeneration, known as BPAN. It's a disorder, more prevalent in girls than boys, that causes delayed development and seizures, communication issues and, sometimes, motor dysfunction. It's unclear exactly how many people are living with BPAN worldwide due to its rarity, although Dr. Sami Barmada, a scientist at the University of Michigan studying BPAN, estimates roughly 500 to 600 people.

It's rare enough that Dr. Henry Paulson, the director of the Michigan Alzheimer's Disease Center, said there are experts in neurodegeneration who are unfamiliar with BPAN. While Kelly is trying to advocate for her daughter and others with BPAN through fundraising for research, science moves only so fast.

The Kozoles understand that. So birthdays for the family aren't always happy. They are a reminder of what could come.

"That ticking time clock," Kelly said. "Every birthday isn't exciting for me for her. Because it's one year closer to when this bomb is going to go off."

BPAN's rarity makes the reality heartbreakingly simple: There are very few effective treatments, little research and no cure. As Morgan learns how to organize her Peppa Pig characters and learns new words on her iPad -- her future looms.

At some unpredictable point in Morgan's teen and adult years -- the average is around age 25, according to Barmada -- development will just stop. Progress will decline and, in some cases, disappear. Those afflicted with BPAN begin suffering from progressive dystonia parkinsonism -- making it difficult to walk, talk or stand.

"Any day," Kelly said, "it could be like, 'Oh, your daughter's gone.'"

WHEN MORGAN WAS born on Jan. 12, 2015, she was, largely, a healthy baby. She was a little jaundiced but nothing worrisome.

When she would go to the doctor's office for shots, Morgan didn't cry. It was a little abnormal, but when you're a parent of a young child, no crying is viewed as a minor miracle. Kelly and her husband, Kevin, took this as a sign of a tough kid. Nurses even said how great it was.

Looking back, it was a warning sign that something was wrong. BPAN causes a high pain tolerance. Before long, more concerns popped up. Morgan wasn't crawling at nine months, wasn't walking at a year. Expected milestones passed without Morgan reaching them. Kevin and Kelly put her in therapy in late 2016 to work up to these childhood progressive traits and began researching potential causes. They wouldn't find an answer for more than two years.

"She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at first. One doctor diagnosed her with that, and then another, our neurologist, said she doesn't have that," Kelly said. "Then there was speculation but not a full diagnosis she had autism, so we did all the tests for that.

"So through this kind of journey of trying to find out what was wrong, it was exciting that she didn't have something that you were going to this test for, but you still had so many more questions as you were eliminating all these potential diseases that she could have."

Befuddled, they began genetic testing and in November 2018 received a letter about a mutation on Morgan's WDR45 gene. Kelly Googled it, stumbled upon BPAN and freaked out, calling their neurologist. The neurologist told Kelly not to worry -- BPAN was very rare, and Morgan didn't have it.

Doctors diagnosed her with epilepsy because of seizures. Morgan took Keppra, which helped accelerate her vocabulary to about 50 words, typical for a 1-year-old, when she was 3. Then doctors said no, it wasn't epilepsy either.

Another meeting with another neurologist led to a different diagnosis. Three days after she and Kevin returned to Michigan from Super Bowl LIII in February 2019, they received a call. Doctors figured out what was wrong.

It was BPAN.

"In my mind, it's worse than cancer," Kelly said. "How is this even possible? That this can even be so painful for kids later on in life. You try so hard to gain all these abilities, and then early adolescence or early adulthood, it's just [gone] one day, and I've seen a lot of these stories.

"There's a BPAN Facebook website, and that's where the doctors sent us. There's no cure. There's no therapy. 'Go to this website.' That's what I was told."

FOR MONTHS KELLY cried, angry and heartbroken. The Kozoles initially told their families and no one else.

In May 2019, Kelly went to her first Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation (NBIA) conference. She met other parents, heard their stories and began the new normal.

She used her skills -- organization, fundraising and business -- to brainstorm ways to help. Hardly anyone had researched BPAN. Without it, there would be no chance for a cure -- not in Morgan's lifetime, which could reach her 40s, and not in the lifetime of those who might come after.

She shared what was happening with her boss, Detroit Lions president Rod Wood, and his wife, Susan, using a website link to explain BPAN. Wood knew something was wrong because of texts and emails saying they had to take Morgan to this specialist or that appointment.

"As that was confirmed and became her reality, she is now able to talk about it, in a way," Wood said. "Because she's full bore on trying to help generate awareness and financial resources to find a cure for it.

"She went from the unknown to the very tragic known to, 'OK, what are we going to do about it?'"

Kelly consulted her aunts, both of whom worked in medicine. Linda Narhi worked in biotechnology for Amgen for more than 30 years; Dr. Diane Narhi was the first female chief of staff at Simi Valley (California) Hospital. From talking with another group of fundraising BPAN parents -- BPAN Warriors -- Kelly found a guide.

If her aunts had not been resources, she might have joined BPAN Warriors. But Kelly admittedly needs to be in control, and this was her daughter. She needed to manage this herself. She created a nonprofit called Don't Forget Morgan.

Kelly's aunts provided guidance, and Wood offered contacts he had in the finance industry and Silicon Valley. Wood and Lions general counsel Jay Colvin sit on the board. Other Lions coworkers -- with Wood's blessing -- built the website, designed the logo and created social media plans and the first pitch video for Don't Forget Morgan's rollout in 2020.

Progress started with a $15,000 grant to help with a mouse model study at Sanford Research in South Dakota, with another, larger, potential grant to come. In recent months, Kelly has focused largely on fundraising, and another parent of a child with BPAN, Christina Mascarenhas Ftikas, has focused on the medical side of the nonprofit.

"This is why I'm here," Kelly said. "I'm supposed to be a vehicle to get all of this awareness and hopefully a cure for BPAN so the child one, two, three, five years from now, there is hope.

"There is no, 'Go to Facebook.' There is something where you can actually give a parent, 'Here's the symptoms to look for.'"

ABOUT AN HOUR away in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Kaci Kegler and her husband, Brian, had been in the same Facebook community. Kelly, new to the group and looking for a nearby connection, wrote Kaci a message.

"Hey, my daughter was just diagnosed, could we connect?"

Kaci understood. She did the same thing, reaching out without success in 2016 after her daughter, Elle, was diagnosed. Kaci wanted to be a resource.

They talked for an hour. There wasn't much Kaci could say to soothe her. Kelly pinged a year later with another message: I'm starting a nonprofit. Kaci offered to help.Despite suffering from BPAN, Morgan is like any other 5-year-old who enjoys playing with her brother, Connor.Michael Rothstein

Days later, on Feb. 28, Kaci and her husband, Brian, an assistant athletic director for development at the University of Michigan, had their yearly fundraiser for BPAN research on Rare Disease Day at Pizza House in Ann Arbor. They met a doctor who had a connection to researchers at Michigan.

"I literally came home and texted [Kelly] and was like, 'Oh my gosh, we may have inroads,'" Kaci said. "We just started texting. I have never met Kelly face-to-face. We still haven't. But we've texted a lot and we've emailed quite a bit.

"It just kind of started."

By summer, they went from nothing to putting pieces in place for a full-fledged research project with a two-year, $140,000 grant for Barmada and Dr. Jason Chua to help start to solve BPAN.

Chua was working on the regulation of autophagy, which is the cleaning out of damaged cells, and studying BPAN became a natural extension of the work he had already been putting in. BPAN alters that in neurons. Barmada said Chua's research provided a "rare win-win situation" to potentially help with BPAN and other diseases too.

"There are a set of questions in BPAN that nobody has the answer to," Barmada said. "And Jason and myself, we just seem to be in the right position, the right place to be able to help out."

The goal is to understand what is happening within BPAN itself and how people end up with it, while also trying to find therapies for existing patients. Within a year, they are hoping to grow stem cells from people with BPAN in their lab, allowing for the creation of their own stem cells missing the WDR45 gene. Then they will try to either replace the gene or "stimulate autophagy through genetic or pharmacologic means," Barmada said. The hope is this can prevent neurodegeneration.

So far, they've hired a research assistant to work with Chua, developed tools to manipulate the gene using the genome-editing tool CRISPR and applied for approval from Michigan and the institutional review board to get skin biopsies to obtain stem cells from BPAN patients.

It's a process, but it's also a start.

After partnering with Michigan and Sanford, Don't Forget Morgan also began working with Dr. Kathrin Meyer, a researcher at the Center for Gene Therapy at Nationwide Children's Hospital at Ohio State.

"Solving this disease is going to require more than Jason and Sami," Paulson said. "It's going to be a first shot across the bow, but it's going to require more than that. I'll say this, being in the field for a long time. Scientists who are coming up the pike say they want to look at Alzheimer's, want to look at epilepsy. They don't say, 'I want to look at a rare disease.'

"The only way to solve a rare disease is to get someone hooked. Sometimes when you hook a really good one, as I think we have with Jason here, you hook them for life and they make a difference."

MORGAN IS BOUNCING around the Kozoles' suburban Detroit home on this late August day. They just returned from northern Michigan, and having two kids, especially one with special needs, makes tidiness unrealistic.

COVID-19 changed things. Morgan hadn't been to many of her therapies for months. Online school barely kept her attention. There was concern she would have regression in her learning. Instead, her speech advanced by being around Kelly, Kevin and her older brother, Connor, all day. She has sung more songs recently to help increase her vocabulary. Sometimes, she'll listen 20 times in a row.

"Even more than that," Connor said. They aren't sure how much she's truly learning versus memorization. But it is something.Morgan Kozole has inspired her mother, Detroit Lions VP Kelly Kozole, to marshal researchers and other advocates to develop a cure for BPAN, and perhaps help future generations of children who live with the disorder.Michael Rothstein

The family gathers inside Morgan's bedroom -- complete with a special Haven Bed with a zipper to keep her safe from wandering around at night, when she could accidentally turn on the stove and hurt herself or others -- sleep disorders are another BPAN issue. She sits on the floor and starts playing with her small, yellow dollhouse and a fake ice-cream maker. Kelly asks for an ice cream. Morgan makes one for herself instead and pretends to eat it.

Later, outside, Morgan kicks a soccer ball and plays a modified game of catch with a squishy football. Football, no surprise, is big. She says "hike" a lot. "She knows that term," Kevin says, laughing.

In these moments, Morgan seems like any other young child. She attends St. Hugo of the Hills Parish School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, but has a one-on-one para nanny to help. She interacts with people, often overly affectionate.

Sitting at the kitchen table after playtime outside, she plays with Starfall, a children's learning app, on her iPad. They hope it accelerates her word recognition. Morgan is entranced watching "Farmer in the Dell" and using her hands to eat orange slices and Cheerios. She needs a mirror in front of her to provide her a target for her mouth. She listens to books, another way to try absorbing information.

Morgan can now count to 20 and say three sentences in a row. Kelly and Kevin have tried to give Morgan a normal life in an abnormal situation, but they worry about the future -- what she won't have and won't be able to experience.

But Morgan has changed some of that outlook too.

"Focus on how she is so loving and has so much pure joy. A lot of parents of special needs [kids] say you can learn so much from these kids, and you really can," Kelly said. "She is, every morning, just so happy, and 'Mama!' Hugs and kisses to strangers. She has none of those behaviors you learn as an adult where you're not kind to people or you don't want to talk to someone.

"She is just open arms, will give you a hug and is so loving, and it's like, 'Wow, this is really what life is about.'"

Israeli Scientists Discover Oxygen Beauty Treatment That Can Make You Look 25 Years Younger – All You Need to – India.com

By daniellenierenberg

Want to go back in time and look younger? Thats possible now. Yes, you read that right. In a path-breaking discovering, Israeli scientists have made reverse ageing possible. They have found a way to make you look up to 25 years younger. Also Read - Weight Lifting, Sleeping Face-Down And More: Here're 5 Lifestyle Habits That May be Ageing Your Skin

Researchers at Tel Aviv University and the Shamir Medical Centre have collaboratively conducted a study for which they enrolled 35 adults over 64. The subjects were given hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) 5 times a week for 90 minutes. This continued for three months. Later, the study results published in the journal Ageing showed that the use of this oxygen treatment shortened the ends of the chromosome (telomers) and reversed the accumulation of old body cells.

Notably, ageing depends upon sequences of DNA called telomeres. They are located at the ends of chromosomes and their function is to protect the genetic material contained within. These telomeres shorten and degrade every time a cell divides. This process keeps happening until they become so worn down that they can no longer function. This further results in an unstable or dead chromosome. Also Read - 5 Anti-Ageing Food Items You Must Include in Your Diet to Look Young

One of the study researchers named Professor Shai Efrati said, Today telomere shortening is considered the Holy Grail of the biology of ageing. Researchers around the world are trying to develop pharmacological and environmental interventions that enable telomere elongation. Our HBOT protocol was able to achieve this, proving that the ageing process can, in fact, be reversed at the basic cellular-molecular level.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) is a type of therapy during which a patient is kept in a pressurized chamber where the level of oxygen is increased 3 to 4 times more than what you can breathe at normal air pressure. This aims at treating patients suffering from decompression sickness, brain abscess, severe anemia, who have developed air bubbles in their blood vessels, non-healing wounds, radiation injury, vision loss etc.

When your body gets extra oxygen, it releases growth factors and stem cells that are known to promote healing. In a normal scenario, the oxygen you get through the air is adequate for your body to perform different functions. However, when tissue in your body gets damaged or injured, it needs extra oxygen to survive. Through hyperbaric oxygen treatment, doctors temporarily increase the amount of blood your body is carrying and thus helps maintain the oxygen level in tissue to ensure its survival.

Mysteries of COVID smell loss finally yield some answers – Livescience.com

By daniellenierenberg

It dawned on Eian Kantor on a Saturday in early April as he brewed a cup of tea from fresh mint leaves: he had lost his sense of smell. The tea suspiciously smelled of nothing at all. Kantor proceeded to rifle through the fridge, sniffing jars of pickles, chili sauce and garlicnothing.

Ever since New York State went into lockdownin late March,Kantor, age 30, and his girlfriend had stayed isolated in their Queens, N.Y., apartment. So he did not suspect he had COVID-19 despite running a slight fever that he chalked up to seasonal allergies. When he was finally able to get tested weeks into his loss of smell, or anosmia, he tested negative. But months later, he says, several tests showed that his antibodies to the novel coronavirus were off the charts high, which affirmed that I had had it.

An estimated 80 percent of people with COVID-19 have smell disturbances, and many also have dysgeusia or ageusia (a disruption or loss of taste, respectively) or changes in chemesthesis (the ability to sense chemical irritants such as hot chilies). Smell loss is so common in people with the disease that some researchers have recommended its use as adiagnostic testbecause it may be a more reliable marker than fever or other symptoms.

One lingering mystery is how the novel coronavirus robs its victims of these senses. Early in the pandemic, physicians and researchers worried that COVID-related anosmia might signal that the virus makes its way into the brain through the nose, where it could do severe and lasting damage. A suspected route would be via the olfactory neurons that sense odors in the air and transmit these signals to the brain. But studies have shown that this isprobably not the case, says Sandeep Robert Datta, a neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School. My gestalt read of the data to date suggests that the primary source of insult is actually in the nose, in the nasal epithelium, the skinlike layer of cells responsible for registering odors. It looks like the virus attacks, predominantly, support cells and stem cells and not neurons directly, Datta says. But that fact does not mean that neurons cannot be affected, he emphasizes.

Olfactory neurons do not have angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors, which allow the virus entry to cells, on their surface. But sustentacular cells, which support olfactory neurons in important ways, are studded with the receptors. These cells maintain the delicate balance of salt ions in the mucus that neurons depend on to send signals to the brain. If that balance is disrupted, it could lead to a shutdown of neuronal signalingand therefore of smell.

The sustentacular cells also provide the metabolic and physical support needed to sustain the fingerlike cilia on the olfactory neurons where receptors that detect odors are concentrated. If you physically disrupt those cilia, you lose the ability to smell, Datta says.

In astudyinBrain, Behavior and Immunity, Nicolas Meunier, a neuroscientist at the Paris-Saclay University in France, infected the noses of golden Syrian hamsters with SARS-CoV-2. Just two days later, about half of the hamsters sustentacular cells were infected. But olfactory neurons were not infected even after two weeks. And strikingly, the olfactory epithelia were completely detached, which, Meunier says, resembled skin peeling after a sunburn. Although olfactory neurons were not infected, their cilia were entirely gone. If you remove the cilia, you remove the olfactory receptors and the ability to detect odorants, he says.

Disruption of the olfactory epithelium could explain the loss of smell. Yet it remains unclear whether the damage is done by the virus itself or invading immune cells, which Meunier observed after infection. Widespread reports of anosmia with COVID are not typical of other diseases caused by viruses. We think its very specific to SARS-CoV-2, Meunier says. In aprevious studywith other respiratory viruses at his lab, he foundsustentacular cells infected only rarely, whereas with SARS-CoV-2, about half of cells contained the pathogen. With other viruses, smell is usually compromised by a stuffed-up nose, but COVID doesnt usually cause nasal congestion. This is very different, Meunier says.

Researchers have found a few clues about the loss of smell, but they are less certain about how the virus causes a loss of taste. Taste receptor cells, which detect chemicals in the saliva and send signals to the brain,do not contain ACE2, so they probably do not get infected by SARS-CoV-2. But other support cells in the tongue carry the receptor, perhaps providing some indication of why taste goes away. (Although taste can seem to disappear with anosmia because odors are such a key component of flavor, many people with COVID truly develop ageusia and cannot detect even sweet or salty taste.)

The loss of chemical sensingthe burn of hot chilies or the refreshing sensation of mintalso remains unexplained and largely unexplored. These sensations are not tastes. Instead their detection is conveyed by pain-sensing nervessome of whichcontain ACE2throughout the body, including the mouth.

More clues to how the virus obliterates smell come from people recovering from anosmia. The majority of patients lose smell like a light switch going off and recover it rapidly, Datta says. Theres a fraction of patients that have much more persistent anosmia and recover on longer time scales. The olfactory epithelium regularly regenerates. Thats the bodys way of protecting against the constant onslaught of toxins in the environment, Meunier says.

Still, more than seven months after he first experienced anosmia, Kantor falls in the second group of patients: he has yet to detect any odors at all. Its hard because you dont realize how much you relate to smell until you lose it, he says. If the house were on fire, I wouldnt know it. Its very concerning. And then there is what anosmia does to the joy of eating. Foods that used to be good now taste meh, Kantor says.

Carol Yan, a rhinologist at the University of California, San Diego, says that anosmia poses a real health risk. It actually increases mortality. If you cant smell and taste food, it can predispose you to harm, like rotten food or a gas leak, she says. It can also cause social withdrawal or nutritional deficits.

The variation on sensory themes extends to another symptom called parosmia, a possible sign of recovery in people with long-lasting anosmia. Freya Sawbridge, a 27-year-old New Zealand woman, is such an individual. She got COVID-19 in March. After several weeks of anosmia and ageusia, when everything tasted of ice cubes and cardboard, she says, Sawbridge began to regain the most basic tastessweet, salty, sourbut no nuance of flavor, which comes from foods aromas. Chocolate tastes like sweet rubber, she says.

Then, after about five months, some odors returned but not as expected. For a while, all foods smelled of artificial strawberry flavor. But now everything smells hideous and distorted, Sawbridge says. Nothing is accurate, and the odors are all unpleasant. The smell of onions, she says, is unbearable, and a strange chemical flavor permeates everything. All my food tastes like it was sprayed with window cleaner, Sawbridge adds.

Parosmia may occur when newly grown stem cells that develop into neurons in the nose attempt to extend their long fibers, called axons, through tiny holes in the base of the skull and connect with a structure in the brain called the olfactory bulb. Sometimes axons connect to the wrong place, causing erratic smell, but the miswiring can potentially correct itself, given enough time.

That news is welcome for people such as Sawbridge. But the question she wants answered is: How long will her anosmia last? We dont know the final time course of recovery for those with anosmia, Yan says, but it is usually from six months to a year. With long-term postviral smell loss from the flu, after six months, there is a 30 to 50 percent chance of spontaneous recovery without any treatment, she adds. There have been case reports of recovery after two years. But after that, we think the regenerative capability may be hindered. And the chances of recovery are quite slim, unfortunately.

Kantor has tried every avenue imaginable to regain his sense of smell: a course of high-dose steroids to reduce inflammation; a smell-training program with essential oils; beta-carotene supplements for nerve regeneration; acupuncture. Nothing has made a difference. Yan recommends irrigation of the sinuses with budesonide, a topical steroid shown to improve outcomesin a Stanford Universitystudy of people with postflu smell loss for more than six months. Another promising treatment Yan and others areinvestigating is platelet-rich plasma, an anti-inflammatory concoction isolated from blood that has been used to treat some types of nerve damage. But with any treatment, Yan says, the results are not amazing. Its not like youll wake up and say, Wow, I can smell again. But if you can smell soap again or enjoy the taste of some foods, thats a big gain.

There is one final worrying note about anosmia: it has beenidentified as a risk factorfor some neurodegenerative diseases. After the flu pandemic of 1919, we saw an increase in the prevalence of Parkinsons disease, Meunier says. It would be really concerning if something similar were happening here.

But Yan thinks that fear is overblown. There is certainly a link between anosmia and diseases, but we think that viral-induced anosmia is [working by] a totally different mechanism, she says. Having postviral anosmia doesnt put you at higher risk for disease. These are two completely separate phenomena. That should reassure Sawbridge and Kantorand the millions of others worldwide affected with COVID-related smell loss.

Four life-changing wellness retreats from around the world – Euronews

By daniellenierenberg

The new year is always a good time to 'reset' your life and implement new and improved health and fitness habits.

Maintaining new routines isnt easy, but here are four wellness retreats around the world that will help put the architecture in place that you need to live better.

Following the opening of Revivo in Bali in 2018, the brand will be launching a new wellness retreat in the Tarn region of France, in summer 2021.

Revivo Chteau de Fiac will take over a renovated castle on a three-hectare estate, and will feature 16 bedrooms, as well as a salt cave, a spa offering massages and hydrotherapy, bootcamp circuits, and the chance to eat freshly grown vegetables from the on-site garden.

Revivo is a proponent of teaching mind-body connectivity so always incorporates physical activity such as yoga with art classes and meditation, for example.

Also opening in spring/summer 2021, Qatars Zulal Wellness Resort will be the Middle Easts inaugural full-immersion wellness destination and the worlds first centre for traditional Arabic Islamic medicine.

Operated by wellness pioneer Chiva-Som, Zulal will have 120 rooms in a Family Wellness enclave, and 60 suites and villas in a separate zone for adults-only.

Just one hours drive away from Doha International airport, the extravagant hideaway will prescribe healing methods based on centuries of knowledge provided by Islamic medicinal historians and herbalists.

Situated in northern Goa, India, Kings Mansion will join Revivo and Zulal in making its debut in 2021.

Bringing together science and genomics with Ayurvedic medicine, the cutting-edge retreat will offer six wellbeing programmes, including areas such as:

Stays are a minimum of one week and both the Shodhana and Kshipra Shodhana detox programmes require a DNA test before arrival. These tests are to determine genetic pre-dispositions for certain health conditions, thereby allowing for highly personalised treatments.

Located on Lake Constance in southern Germany, Buchinger Wilhelmi is a hotel-clinic specialising in therapeutic fasting and integrative medicine.

In September it launched a new Immunity+ programme that is designed to boost wellbeing (with the specific aim of reducing the risk of getting Covid-19), and is bookable as a 110 add-on to its fasting packages.

After guests have been given a quick blood test on arrival to make sure they dont have Covid, they then get to relax in luxurious surroundings while embarking on a calorie-restricted regime (ten days costs 2,340 per person), which includes nurse checks, consultations with a doctor, daily activities, and a menu of freshly-made vegetable bouillon and pressed fruit juices.

Dr Francoise Wilhelmi de Toledo, scientific director at Buchinger Wilhelmi, explains, When you fast, all your digestive processes are in rest. Without needing the energy to digest, all stresses are diminished and you actually need less immunity.

"During this time, you change your microbiome. You stimulate the lungs, skin, kidneys, liver and the system itself triggers autophagy an extraordinary capacity of the body to eliminate damaged cellular structures. When you fast, you activate stem cells to rejuvenate immune cells.

Jenny Southan is editor and founder of travel trend forecasting agency Globetrender.

Avrobio tracks improvements in first patient treated with Gaucher gene therapy – FierceBiotech

By daniellenierenberg

Avrobio has shared data on the first Gaucher disease patient to receive its gene therapy AVR-RD-02. The patient, who was stable on enzyme replacement therapy at baseline, experienced a 22% drop in a toxic metabolite after receiving AVR-RD-02 and stopping taking the standard of care.

Gaucher, like the Fabry disease targeted by Avrobios lead prospect, is currently treated using enzyme replacement therapies sold by Sanofi and Takeda, which entered the market through its takeover of Shire. However, a significant minority of patients experience physical limitations despite treatment. Negative outcomes include bone pain and spleen enlargement. Johnson & Johnsons Zavesca offers an oral alternative, but there remain unmet medical needs.

Avrobio is developing AVR-RD-02 to address those needs. The data shared as part of Avrobios R&D day mark the start of the effort to show AVR-RD-02 performs as hoped in the clinic.

Start using real-world data to advance your clinical research

Much has been written about the promise of real-world data (RWD) in life sciences, but how does it work in practice? We address this question in a new whitepaper that demonstrates the potential benefits of new RWD technologies with a proof of concept study to show how RWD can be incorporated into clinical research.

The first patient to receive AVR-RD-02 discontinued enzyme replacement therapy one month before taking the gene therapy. Three months after receiving the gene therapy, levels of Gaucher biomarker lyso-Gb1 had fallen 22%. The patients level of plasma chitotriosidase, a biomarker of cells associated with severe organ damage, was down 17%. Hemoglobin and platelets were in the normal range.

AVR-RD-02 triggered those changes without causing serious adverse events. The data drop offers an early indication that Avrobio may be able to improve outcomes by harvesting hematopoietic stem cells, adding a gene that encodes for glucocerebrosidase and reinfusing the cells back into the same patient. With enzyme replacement therapies costing healthcare systems up to $400,000 a year per patient, there is scope for AVR-RD-02 to cut the cost of treating Gaucher disease.

Avrobio shared the early look at clinical data on AVR-RD-02 alongside updates about other assets. There is now more than three years of data on some Fabry patients treated with Avrobios lead asset, putting the company in a position to plot a path to accelerated approval. Avrobio plans to submit its briefing book to the FDA by the end of the year to align on an accelerated approval strategy.

The update also covered cystinosis candidate AVR-RD-04. The first patient to receive the candidate is off oral and eye drop cysteamine 12 months after receiving the gene therapy. The number of crystals in the patients skin are down 56%, leading Avrobio to posit they may have gained the ability to make their own functional cystinosin protein.

As California Passes Prop 14, What Is Stem Cell Research and Why Is It Controversial? – Newsweek

By daniellenierenberg

Voters in California have approved Proposition 14, which will pump billions of dollars into the state's stem cell research program. The Associated Press called the vote on Thursday, with 51 percent of ballots for and 49 percent against.

The result will allow the state to borrow $5.5 billion from investors for its stem cell agency, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). The moneywhich taxpayers will repay with interest over the next 30 yearswill enable the institute to stay open, expand its research programs, and build new facilities.

Some $1.5 billion of the money will be spent researching conditions affecting the brain and central nervous system, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, epilepsy, and stroke.

Unlike specialized cellssuch as blood cells or bone cellsstem cells do not have a specific job. Think of them as the raw materials of our bodies. When they divide, they can either renew and make new stem cells, or turn into specialized cells.

Despite making headlines for years, stem cell research is still in its early stages, with some treatments that have appeared to have worked in animals now going into clinical trials. These include treatments for macular degeneration, a common cause of blindness, as well as stroke, Lou Gehrig's disease, and spinal cord injuries.

It is hoped growing stem cells into specialized cells could also one day be used to replace damaged tissue and organs, for instance by helping the pancreas produce insulin in people with diabetes.

Currently, stem bone marrow transplantation is the most common form of stem cell therapy, used to treat blood cancer patients. Stem cell therapy has also been used for grafts of corneal stem cells, as well as skin grafts for burns victims.

As well as creating treatments, stem cell research can also help scientists understand diseases. Observing the cells in a lab as they turn into specialized cells, for instance, can provide clues on how we develop certain conditions.

There are a number of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells, adult stem cells tweaked to behave like embryonic stem cells, and stem cells found in the amniotic fluid and the umbilical cord of babies.

The controversy around stem cell research largely lies in the use of embryonic stem cells. These are taken from human embryos in their early stages of development. Opponents have likened this to abortion, although others disagree with this stance.

Embryonic stem cells used in research come from donations from IVF clinics, where an egg is fertilized with a sperm but not implanted into a patient because it is not needed. Embryonic stem cells are preferred over adult stem cells, as it may not be possible to specialize the latter and they are more likely to have abnormalities. But research suggests that it may be possible to turn adult stem cells into a wider range of specialized cells than previously thought, which may make them more useful.

In 2001, the Bush administration banned federal funding for stem cell research. This lead real estate developer Robert N. Klein II to initiate and help fund Proposition 71 in California. The aim was to enshrine the right to carry out stem cell research in the state's constitution, and establish CIRM. Klein was motivated by his son's experience with Type 1 diabetes, and his mother's Alzheimer's diagnosis. In 2004, Californians voted in favor of the proposition.

The institute has performed 64 clinical trials, and published over 3,000 scientific articles on the subject. But 16 years after Proposition 71 passed, CIRM started to run out of funds, and stopped accepting applications for new projects last year. This prompted the Californians for Stem Cell Research, Treatments and Cures political action committee (PAC) to lead the campaign for Proposition 14. Klein was among its supporters, as well as California governor Gavin Newsom, LA mayor Eric Garcetti, and the Michael J. Fox Foundation established by the Back to the Future actor and Parkison's disease patient who is its namesake.

On November 1, the foundation urged people via Twitter to vote in favor of Prop 14 to fund research on neurological disease. "Without this proposition vital research may come to a halt, delaying new treatments for people with," it said.

"Demonstrating its expertise in recognizing the dynamic needs of the cosmetics industry, Mibelle launched the Alpine Rose Active line of products to fight skin aging,"said Prateeksha Kaul Research Analyst. "This line of products uses a natural senolytic agent extracted from the Alpine rose leaves in the Swiss Alps to eliminate senescent cells, which are the cells responsible for aging, without affecting the neighboring cells. This halts the skin's aging process while rejuvenating it and increasing its elasticity. This product also meets the rising demand for natural and sustainable products over harsh chemicals that are harmful to both the environment and the skin."

Similarly, in response to the growing interest in phytocannabinods, Mibelle introduced an encapsulated cannabidiol (CBD) product, the Lipobelle Pino C. Other players in the market have had limited success with CBD in spite of its potential benefits for the skin because it is not soluble in water. Mibelle addressed this limitation with the Lipobelle Pino C. By encapsulating the CBD into a nanoemulsion using hemp oil, Mibelle made it water-soluble and stable in cosmetic formulations. Its combination with an extract from Swiss stone pines also helps the product fight inflammation. Lipobelle Pino C exploits the anti-inflammatory and regenerating effects of CBD for cosmetic benefits such as easing facial tension, reducing inflammation, and regenerating tissue.

Mibelle has been a pioneer in utilizing interesting biochemical concepts for its active ingredients. In 2008, it gained a first-mover advantage with the launch of its active ingredient PhytoCellTec Malus Domestica, which involved the application of stem cells in cosmetics for the very first time. In 2019, Mibelle utilized its PhytoCellTec technology to launch the PhytoCellTec Goji, which stimulates the mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) culture with goji stem cells for enhancing face shape by preventing the skin from sagging. The success of this technology and other recent innovations has allowed the company to achieve a 15 percent growth rate annually.

"Mibelle works closely with certification bodies to analyze the ingredients, raw materials, and processes to obtain the required certifications for its products. It also collaborates with personal care product manufacturers to offer premium high-quality products that benefit the end user," noted Kaul. "With its ability to introduce breakthrough active ingredients, Mibelle AG Biochemistry has carved a niche for itself in the personal care industry. It has consistently adopted a holistic innovation approach that has enabled it to consistently develop novel concepts and ingredients."

Real life ‘Barbie and Ken’ achieve doll-like looks with futuristic stem-cell injections – Daily Star

By daniellenierenberg

A doll-obsessed couple describe themselves as human Barbie and Ken.

The Los Angeles-based pair have had futuristic stem-cell injections to achieve their looks.

Marcela Iglesias and her husband Steven Berman get the treatment in the hope of rejuvenating their bodies, skin and hair.

The former said: "Weve both had stem cell therapy through IV.

Thirty million mysenthanial cells each a total of 60 million stem cells through the drip.

The 43-year-old has also turned back the clock by getting 60,000 worth of cosmetic procedures.

As well as this, Marcela hones her sculpted figure by following a gruelling fitness regime.

She said: "I never had plastic surgery but I am not against it just a couple of cosmetic procedures like Botox and a little filler to maintain face volume, but have never completely changed or modified my appearance.

"The Barbie doll is an inspiration for becoming whoever you want to be and achieving all your life goals.

Obviously, the aesthetic of the doll is impeccable but at the same time, my approach is a more natural look and I achieve it by working out all the time on my Edgecross-X training system.

"Surgery-wise, I have been contemplating a mini facelift but with the new Morpheus 8, a non-surgical advanced needling treatment that uses radio frequency to tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face and body.

Marcela added: I am also considering a boob and booty boost, basically to make them perky and firm again.

"I admire what the doll represents more than how she looks; I am very respectful of the image of the Barbie doll as I want to encourage all men and women around the world to pursue their dreams and to achieve the look they want.

While the Barbie fan hasnt had any invasive plastic ops done, her Ken doll-loving husband has.

Steven 53, has had a chin implant, two hair transplantations and neck surgery.

The couples extreme appearance helps them to stand out on the street.

Marcela said: "When we go out together, people tell us that we look like Barbie and Ken because we are both blonde and have the doll-like aesthetic.

"I always wear vibrant colours. We break the mould I guess.

The couple, who have been together since meeting on Myspace in 2009, seem to enjoy the attention their looks bring.

Their fame has allowed them to buy McLaren 570s sports cars that cost 200,000.

The motor features an oil-slick rainbow paint job, courtesy of hit TV show Pimp My Ride's West Coast Customs in Los Angeles.

Marcela, who sometimes goes by the nickname 'Queen of Hollywood' and shares glossy lifestyle shots with 310,000 followers on Instagram page @marcelaiglesiashollywood, added: "This type of car is more like a fulfilling a fantasy and achieving one of my dreams.

"I always wanted a car where the doors open like angel wings, so this year with everything that's been going on, I decided to treat myself and my husband.

"I must admit that I had to compromise on the colour because I originally wanted something more pinky toned, but my husband has to drive the car as well and I didn't want him to feel embarrassed!

I believe this car is an extension of my personality - a reflection of myself... I dress the car like I would like to dress!

The Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Market To Witness Fierce Competition Amongst The Key Players – KYT24

By daniellenierenberg

Market Report Summary

For Full Information -> Click Here

Read Full Press Release Below

The healthcare industry has been focusing on excessive research and development in the last couple of decades to ensure that the need to address issues related to the availability of drugs and treatments for certain chronic diseases is effectively met. Healthcare researchers and scientists at the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of the Hong Kong University have successfully demonstrated the utilization of human induced pluripotent stem cells or hiPSCs from the skin cells of the patient for testing therapeutic drugs.

The success of this research suggests that scientists have crossed one more hurdle towards using stem cells in precision medicine for the treatment of patients suffering from sporadic hereditary diseases. iPSCs are the new generation approach towards the prevention and treatment of diseases that takes into account patients on an individual basis considering their genetic makeup, lifestyle, and environment. Along with the capacity to transform into different body cell types and same genetic composition of the donors, hiPSCs have surfaced as a promising cell source to screen and test drugs.

Company Profile

Get To Know Methodology of Report @ https://www.persistencemarketresearch.com/methodology/17968

In the present research, hiPSC was synthesized from patients suffering from a rare form of hereditary cardiomyopathy owing to the mutations in Lamin A/C related cardiomyopathy in their distinct families. The affected individuals suffer from sudden death, stroke, and heart failure at a very young age. As on date, there is no exact treatment available for this condition.

This team in Hong Kong tested a drug named PTC124 to suppress specific genetic mutations in other genetic diseases into the iPSC transformed heart muscle cells. While this technology is being considered as a breakthrough in clinical stem cell research, the team at Hong Kong University is collaborating with drug companies regarding its clinical application.

The unique properties of iPS cells provides extensive potential to several biopharmaceutical applications. iPSCs are also used in toxicology testing, high throughput, disease modeling, and target identification. This type of stem cell has the potential to transform drug discovery by offering physiologically relevant cells for tool discovery, compound identification, and target validation.

A new report by Persistence Market Research (PMR) states that the globalinduced pluripotent stem or iPS cell marketis expected to witness a strong CAGR of 7.0% from 2018 to 2026. In 2017, the market was worth US$ 1,254.0 Mn and is expected to reach US$ 2,299.5 Mn by the end of the forecast period in 2026.

La Prairies New Collection Is Inspired by a Platinum Meteor Shower that Lasted 200 Million Years – Surface Magazine

By daniellenierenberg

What is the value of time? La Prairie has been pondering that question for nearly a century, since founder Dr. Paul Niehans, who earned the sobriquet father of cellular therapy, began experimenting with remedies for longevity in 1931 at the Clinique La Prairie in Montreux, Switzerland.

Over the years, the heritage Swiss luxury house has lived at the forefront of beauty innovation, producing indulgent face creams and serums that introduce science into skincare and incorporate rarefied ingredients such as caviar, gold, and now platinum. The precious metal is the anchor of new the Platinum Rare Haute-Rejuvenation collection, the brands latest fountain-of-youth formula offered in a seven product range.

Housed in an assortment of sculptural, amethyst-shaded vessels with enhanced platinum accents, the velvety creams and elixirsperfumed with La Prairies signature scentshowcase a new science dubbed Haute-Rejuvenation. At the core of it is a cellular renewal process that smooths wrinkles, improves skin moisture, restores volume, and induces a vibrant glow. By invigorating epidermal stem cells, it in effectturns back time to more youthful skin.

La Prairies Exclusive Cellular Complex is a life force for the skin. It uses biotechnological research to give new life and energy back to the very cells where beauty is born. It invigorates and nourishes epidermal stem cells to enable them to resume cellular renewal and functionality similar to that of young skin.

When we age, the skins natural rejuvenating capacity decreases, leading to the appearance of signs of aging, says Dr. Jacqueline Hill, the brands global director of strategic innovation. La Prairies Science of Haute-Rejuvenation seeks to specifically modulate and stimulate the skins natural network of interconnected rejuvenating processes to compensate for the age-related decrease of its performance.

Another pillar of the brands history is art. To celebrate the launch of Platinum RareHaute Rejuvenation, La Prairie commissioned the acclaimed British composer Max Richter and Japanese artist Nobuhiro Nakanishi to collaborate on an immersive installation set to debut at this years West Bund Art & Design in Shanghai (Nov. 12-15). Richter masterminded a score for Nakanishis layer drawing Echo of Time, a sculptural work with a sequential photography series of the Swiss Alps at twilight.

The duo was tasked to consider the essence of time and space, particularly a billion -year-long meteor shower responsible for bringing platinum to earth. For his contribution, Nakanishi traveled to Niederhorn peak in the Swiss Alps where he photographed a vibrant sunrise of blue, red, and purplethe colors that imbue Platinum Rares bottle design. The colors dyed the mountains and at the same time, the sky awakened and became amethyst, Nakanishi says of the scene. The mountainous scenery in Switzerland is the perfect place to illustrate the notion of timeless nature through the clearness of the water, the air, and the reflection of light created by nature itself.

Richters melodic composition begins with pulsating choral strings that give way to an individual acoustic figure meant to stimulate the feeling of entering a new landscape. It provokes a dynamic encounter with a new world and makes you feel alive, he says. To Richter, time is mysterious and doesnt always move at the same speed. This is the kind of thing a piece of music can trigger: it can stop time or speed it up, it can make time feel more intense.

Its a synergetic notion: Manipulating the effects of time is something La Prairie does best.

In 2020, a symbol of confidence is the perfect companion as the year (thankfully) comes to a close. Americans are turning over a new leaf after being quarantined and pushed forward growing accustomed to a home-hibernated lifestyle. Nowadays, breaking from the tradition has given rise to the public forefront where a socially distant meeting isnt so distant any-longer.

Nonetheless, beauty is a gesture, a symbol of self-assurance that transcends to self-care while remaining true to creating something more modern. The silver lining to 2020, is that given the endless hours spent at home, many Americans came across a new found peace and serenity. In turn, a straight path forward to curate and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

To mark the most memorable moments, home workouts did not go unnoticed. In addition, binge buying had its place to fill a chapter of satisfaction. But what about beauty regimes?Well, that continued to hold its own during this era of self-isolation and wellness. After all, strong willed optimism to return to the once dreaded daily-grind will bestow itself upon us in the near future.

Over the years, innovative treatments in skincare brought forth a fresh new set of revolutionary products and devices that have been entering the market segmentation. For example, Dr. Dennis Gross has pioneered an LED (light emitting diode) device that not only succeeds in its wrinkle reducing and acne fighting purpose, but rather transports you to a world of futuristic rejuvenation as you place this sci-fi mask on your face.

As businesses across the country begin to open their doors again, Dr. Barbara Sturm is providing extensive knowledge and intricate detail into the scientific formulation of serums such as her Anti-Pollution Drops that replenishes skin from HEV blue light, ejected from digital devices; something mankind cannot escape in modern times.

In fact, celebrity makeup artist Marie-Jose Leduc attests that using pure natural oils is the best path forward. Ms Leduc recently launched Odile, a skincare line where the products are a cocktail of active botanicals and devotedly organic. Let go of the harsh chemicals Leduc tells us. Scale it back a little and go gentle. More to the point, Gen Z advocates sustainability, a key factor to the largely lucrative industry.There is a small group of us who look at the big picture. I cant make money knowing that I am harming the environment, Leduc preaches with strength to pave an organic pathway for those that follow.

Now that the world is getting closer and closer, the next chapter is confidence and hope. Americans are rediscovering comfort and security found in beauty and wellness. As tough as 2020 has been, people are feeling refreshed and replenished to take on the next chapter. To help you begin your fresh skincare and wellness regiment, I have reviewed a handful of the best products and services developed to stand the test of time.

LightStim-The restorative benefits of sunlight have been known for thousands of years, but in more recent history we have become aware of the damage that can be caused by excessive exposure to UV. Often called red light therapy and generally referred to as low-level light therapy or photobiomodulation among researchers and clinicians, this treatment contains no UV and utilizes only clinically proven beneficial wavelengths (or colors) of light to treat the skin. Studies performed over many decades, including those conducted by NASA, have shown that the human body has the ability to absorb light through the skin and other body tissues and convert it into energy. This is important, because as we age our skin loses the energy needed to maintain its plump, youthful appearance. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles form, and skin appears slack. The key to LightStim for Wrinkles' effectiveness is its patented MultiWave technology which allows for a more thorough and comprehensive treatment. The device simultaneously emits 4 different wavelengths of UV-free therapeutic light energy. Amber, deep red, light red and infrared wavelengths nourish the skin from within, filling in fine lines and wrinkles, and over time reducing and even eliminating them all in an easy-to-use, portable hand-held device. $249

7 misleading ‘facts’ about skin that just aren’t true – IOL

By daniellenierenberg

By The Conversation 1h ago

Share this article:

By Sara Brown

Skin is our largest organ and something we may take for granted when its healthy. As an academic dermatologist I frequently hear misleading facts that seem to be stubbornly enduring. Here are some of the most commonly shared myths that can be cleared up immediately, and some truths you can rely on.

Skin constantly renews itself

TRUE: The skin provides a dynamic barrier between your bodys internal environment and the outside world. Cells called keratinocytes in the epidermis (the outer layer of skin) are constantly dividing to produce a supply of cells that move up through this layer and are shed from its surface. Skin is a rich source of stem cells with the capacity to divide and renew themselves.

Drink two litres of water a day for healthy skin

FALSE: The amount of water you drink does not directly affect your skin. Water is supplied to the skin by blood flowing through the dermis, the inner layer of skin; water is lost from the epidermis, especially in a dry environment.

Water is needed to maintain skin hydration and when you become seriously dehydrated your skin appears dull and is less elastic. In a healthy person the internal organs kidneys, heart and blood vessels control the amount of water reaching the skin. There is no fixed volume of water that you need to drink, it simply depends on the amounts you are using and losing.

Stress can make skin unhealthy

TRUE: There are many health issues in modern life that we blame on stress, but several skin conditions have been shown in scientific studies to be worsened by life events, possibly via stress hormones including cortisol (a steroid hormone made in the adrenal glands). Notable examples are alopecia areata, an auto-immune condition where the bodys immunity begins to attack the hair follicles, causing hair to fall out; psoriasis, another auto-immune condition that causes skin thickening, scaling and inflammation; and eczema, itchy red skin inflammation often occurring alongside asthma, hay fever and other allergies. Unfortunately a flare-up of these skin conditions is exactly what you dont need when you are feeling stressed or under pressure.

Eating chocolate causes acne

FALSE: Acne vulgaris, the common teenage acne which can actually persist into your thirties and forties, occurs as a result of the interaction between hormonal effects on grease glands in the skin, plus the skins immune response to blocked pores and microbes living on the skin.

Eating a high fat diet is unhealthy for many reasons, but it doesnt cause acne. In fact some tablets prescribed for severe acne such as oral isotretinoin are better absorbed when pills are swallowed with a fatty meal and that could include chocolate.

Washing powder causes eczema

FALSE: Eczema is a condition where the skin is dry, itchy and red. It is caused by a combination of genetic factors (how your skin is made) and environmental effects, leading to inflammation. Soap, detergents and washing powders can irritate the skin and contribute to dryness because they remove oil from the skin (just as washing-up liquid removes grease from your dishes). Biological washing powders contain enzymes proteins that break down fats and other proteins to remove stains and these can irritate sensitive skin, so they may worsen eczema. It is important that any washing power is thoroughly rinsed out of clothing before it is worn, to avoid skin irritation.

White marks on nails = calcium deficiency

FALSE: Nails are manufactured in the nail matrix, an area under the skin at the top edge of your nail. If the matrix is traumatised, bumped or bitten, an irregularity in the developing nail occurs and air can become trapped. This appears as a white mark as the nail grows out. Calcium is important for healthy nails (as well as bones and teeth) but these white marks are not a sign of deficiency.

Sunshine is good for you

TRUE & FALSE Many people have experienced the feel-good factor of a sunny day, but there are good and bad effects of sunlight. Light from the sun includes a mixture of different wavelengths of light: some are visible to the human eye, some are shorter than the colours we can see these are called ultraviolet (UV) and some are longer, the infrared. Different wavelengths have different effects on skin.

UVB is used by skin to manufacture vitamin D which is essential for bone health. Without sun exposure this vitamin must be obtained from the diet. Dermatologists use specific wavelengths of UVA and UVB in carefully controlled doses to reduce skin inflammation, a valuable treatment for some skin conditions.

But when the skin is exposed to too much UV it can damage the skin cells DNA, leading to uncontrolled growth the basis of cancer. As a simple rule, unless you have a disease or treatment that suppresses your immune system, sunshine is good for you in moderation, but always avoid getting sunburned.

Keep it simple

The basic principles of keeping skin healthy are mainly common sense. You should wash your skin regularly to remove dirt, but not so much that you remove the essential moisture and water-proofing substances. Use a moisturiser if your skin feels tight or dry a greasy ointment works best unless you have acne-prone skin, in which case you should use a non-greasy water-based cream. Avoid stress if possible, eat a healthy diet and drink water when you feel thirsty. And finally, protect your skin from too much sun with a hat and clothing or sunscreen.

Red algae and sheep placenta: 9 bizarre but effective skincare ingredients that actually work – VOGUE India

Caviar-infused, charcoal-spiked, caffeine-boosted... the list can be endless. Sure, some of these may seem slightly familiar today, but over the years, creatures like snails, snakes and bees have inched their way from the outdoors to skincare concoctions. But are these bizarre additives actual glow givers or simply advertising gimmicks? To find out, we caught up with two experts, New York-based dermatologist Dr Joshua Zeichner and Ginger King, a cosmetic chemist from New Jersey, who uncover nine weird (yet seemingly wonderful) ingredients and the beauty payoff they offer. Plus, some lotions and potions worth checking out that feature them.

A distinctive type of algae species, red algae are mostly found in freshwater lakes. Besides being a natural food source for fish and other aquatic animals, this protein-rich, vitamin-laced algae is considered a delicacy in Japan and the North Atlantic. The University of California, Berkeley claims phycoerythrin (the pigment found in red algae) reflects red light and absorbs blue light. We already have enough research that prove millions of tiny particles of blue light travel from your smart devices down to the deepest level of your skin to decompose the collagen and elastin necessary to ward off wrinkles. Red algae contains high levels of carotenoid antioxidants, which not only gives the algae its red colour, but also protects the skin from free radical damage, explains Dr Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in the dermatology department at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

Talk about an overachiever: this humble, single-celled fungi commonly used for baking breads and cinnamon rolls is also a potent anti-inflammatory ingredient, reveals King, who, with her innovative concepts and product formulations, has developed over hundreds of skin and haircare products. Yeast actually helps in healing burns too. Aveeno, for example, is based on beta glucan [sugars found in the cell walls of yeasts]. Yeast owes its anti-ageing attributes to peptide, which increases sirtuina type of protein that regulates collagen and elastin. Another major plus? Pitera, the liquid derived from the yeast fermentation process, is super-rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that can strengthens skin's moisture barrier.

While theres a bevy of snail-slime skincare products by K-beauty brands that claims to be the quickest route to glass skin, Dr Zeichner, too, is bullish on the protein-rich, antioxidant-filled secretion cryptomphalus aspersa species aka the garden variety snail leave behind on sidewalks. Snails mucous has been shown to have antioxidant properties, stimulate collagen production, and enhance wound healing. It is also very rich, so it can help hydrate the skin. Clinical studies have shown that snail mucin containing skincare products gave sophistical improvements in facial lines and wrinkles, he goes on to reveal.

Squalene is found in high concentrations in shark liver. It is also present in our own sebum, so it is the most natural way to moisturise the skin, adds King. Squalene is a lipid or fat, naturally made by our oil glands to hydrate and maintain the barrier of our skin. It has also been known to fight free-radical damage as an antioxidant. Unfortunately, the squalene production significantly slows down after the age of 30, which is why it makes sense to slather it on the face. In its crude state, it is not a stable compound and thats why it goes through a saturation process to become squalane to be added to skincare products. Due to the obvious ethical reasons, it is now derived from plants like sugarcane, shares King. Squalanes emollient properties can be especially advantageous to people with dry and/or mature skin.

No, this is not human bone marrow. Chicken bones is invariably the marrow of choice to derive glucosamine (the natural compound found in the tough tissue that cushions joints) for creams and moisturisers, or it is bioengineered from shells of shellfish. Stem cells, when applied on the skin, take cues from the surrounding tissue to generate new skin cells, and in turn, a younger-looking skin. Glucosamine has been shown to enhance collagen production and stimulate hyaluronic acid. This can help strengthen and plump the skin, says Dr Zeichner, reinstating the efficacy of glucosamine on skin ageing.

Once upon a time, a Swedish chemist used diatomaceous earth (a type of a sedimentary rock) to patent a mixture called dynamite. A century and few decades later, this component used to make explosives was infused in skincare products, thanks to its inherent benefits to absorb oils, exfoliate the skin, reduce shine and trap bacteria. Diatomaceous earth is often used as a filler in powder masks as it helps to detoxify and draw out excess skin sebum, reveals King.

While we associate a bee sting with the opposite-of-magic (read: teeth-gnashing pain), the colourless, liquid poison a bee deposits from its stinger when it stings, in contrast, is thought to increase collagen production to thicken the skin and improve the appearance of wrinkles, shares Dr Zeichner. Turns out that the venom also boosts of powerful anti-inflammatory benefits to diminish those pesky pimples, including cystic and body acne, that go a bit beneath the surface.

Meet the natural wonder that has been generating quite a buzz and transforming complexionsgoats milk. Milk has been used for centuries to infuse the skin and hair with proteins, calcium and vitamins. It is a natural source of lactic acid. This mean it can slough off dead skin cells, says King, but also warns of skin sensitivity issues that can be caused by milk and recommends patch test first. Goats milk is known for its moisture-boosting, skin-softening and gentle-exfoliating properties thats perfect for dry, tight or chapped skin.

The placenta is a large sac-like organ that develops during pregnancy to provide the developing baby with food and oxygen. It eventually expelled from a mammals body after the birth. Ovine serum derived from sheep placenta is used in some facials and beauty products too, says Dr Zeichner. While theres not much research behind its efficacy, it is thought to be rich in proteins and other ingredients that stimulate collagen to brighten and tighten the skin. It may be useful in people who have sun damage.
