15 Best Peptide Skin-Care Products 2021 for Smoother, Firmer, and Plumper Skin – Allure

By daniellenierenberg

Peptides don't get talked about nearly enough as some other ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and retinol, but their benefits are bountiful and play a key role in improving the elasticity and plumpness of your skin. As we previously reported, peptides essentially act as tiny messengers that send messages directly to our skin cells to promote better communication. (If only they could perform the same task to better our relationships we kid.)

At their core, peptides are "chains of different types of amino acids, like glycine, arginine, histidine, etc.," David Kim, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist in New York City explains to Allure. "Peptides in skin-care products are designed to boost and replenish amino acids, which are the building blocks for collagen production." Since amino acids are the smallest unit of a protein, peptides are able to mimic another type of protein, collagen. And compared to topical collagen, peptides also have a much smaller particle size and can actually be absorbed into your skin.

"By boosting collagen production, [peptides] can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and make the skin firmer," Dr. Kim says, adding that everyone can incorporate and benefit from using the powerhouse ingredient in their routines. To that end, he says that you shouldn't experience any side effects while using peptides. "If someone has a [negative] reaction, it's most likely from the preservatives, other chemicals, or essential oils in the formula, not the peptides," Dr. Kim explains.

Mature skin can definitely benefit from peptides since, unfortunately, our bodies start to produce less and less collagen as we age. And, not to mention, the quality of said collagen also decreases over time, board-certified dermatologist Corey L. Hartman, M.D. who is based in Birmingham, Alabama, explained to us. As a result, wrinkles start to form and skin begins to sag.

Common categories of peptides consist of signal, carrier, enzyme-inhibitor, and neurotransmitter-inhibitor depending on how they work. For example, copper peptides activate wound healing, which, in turn, stimulates collagen production. But that's a bit hard to remember, especially considering that labs and brands can and do trademark their own peptide complexes.

As a consumer, you'll often find "peptide" placed front and center on the actual product packaging, you can also look out for ingredients like dipeptide, tripeptide, and hexapeptide. It's not uncommon to see multiple peptides strung together to maximum their collagen-boosting benefits, like Paula's Choice Peptide Booster and The Ordinary "Buffet."

To help you sort out the vast market, we asked dermatologists and our very own Allure editors to recommend their favorite peptide skin-care products, so you can be well on your way to achieving smoother, firmer skin.

7 New Non-Injectable In-Office Treatments for Fine Lines in 2021 – Allure

By daniellenierenberg

Radiofrequency microneedling is the go-to procedure of Marie Hayag, M.D., a New York City dermatologist, for speedy results and recovery. "It's a simple and quick non-surgical procedure," she says. "No one wants downtime."

The first phase of the treatment is microneedling to create microscopic, quick-healing wounds deep in the dermis. "When you put needles in the skin, it induces a cascade of events for your skin to respond to produce more collagen and elastin," Dr. Hayag explains.

Then, Lutronic Genius takes skin plumping and tightening one step further by pairing up the painless pinpricks with radiofrequency to heat up the skin and create thermal damage. As a result, the whole process "expedites the production of collagen and elastin," causing skin to contract, tighten, and improve fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging, Dr. Hayag says. Best results appear after a series of three treatments, timed one month apart.

On the day of the procedure, you can expect your face to be covered in some "point marks of blood" and minimal scabbing, Dr. Murphy-Rose says, while Dr. Hayag recommends patients skip wearing makeup for 24 hours to let the needle wounds heal. In the three to five days following, redness and a bit of peeling may occur, too.

Dr. Idriss also loves microneedling with heat so much so she performed three treatments a month apart on herself. Two months into the series of procedures, "I remember looking at my eyes, thinking, 'Wow, those fine lines under my eyes are so much better,'" she recalls.

In general, radiofrequency microneedling devices offer "the best bang for someone's buck" about $1,500 to be exact as their results pack very little downtime and maximum efficiency without causing "an enormous amount of trauma" to skin, says Paul Jarrod Frank, M.D., a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist in New York City.

Clear + Brilliant Touch for Texture and Discoloration

Another newer, noninvasive innovation Dr. Murphy-Rose recently added to her device lineup is the Clear + Brilliant Touch laser, which she considers a safer, more low-key alternative to the laser gold standard, Fraxel.

With a typical Fraxel treatment, patients are sedated for the procedure, which resurfaces skin to diminish sun damage, discoloration, and fine lines, followed by wound care for the first 24 hours. Fraxel notoriously requires serious downtime, complete with redness, peeling, and discomfort for at least a week. Also, its pricey starting around $7,500, depending on the area you're addressing

Common But Overlooked Causes for Hair Loss – The Cherokee Scout

By daniellenierenberg

By Suzy Cohen

I was talking with a friend the other day who said she is experiencing hair loss, and that it is very disappointing to her because it appears to be getting worse. She was leaning on me for advice because she said,I cant look in the mirror anymore.

She has tried all the expensive shampoos, and color treatments, she has asked her doctor, and she has finally retreated to the reality of losing her hair, when she is still a very pretty woman in her mid 70s. Basically, shes given up hope for restoration.

Within minutes I was able to discern the problem for her, and arm her with information to regrow her hair.

Todays article is to help you too. Id like to show you some more possible causes for your own hair loss in case youve given up hope yourself. Its not always because of advancing age, although that is one obvious reason.

An estimated 100 hairs are shed every day! Thats hard to believe, but its true. If youre not growing new hairs, the hair loss becomes more evident. So hair loss and hair growth are two different things. You cant stop the shedding, thats natural, but you do have some control over new hair growth. You also have a little control over factors that lead to excessive hair shedding, maybe not stem cells but certainly other factors. The stem cell theory is brand new!

Stem cell studies suggest that the 1.5 grams of dead material that we shed daily (about 500 million cells) is replaced by new stem cells, and our stem cells are compromised, and lower in number as we age. The see-saw of hair growth to hair shedding tilts in favor of hair loss with higher age. But as you will soon see, my article will show what else accelerates the hair loss.

My point is that its not always about a reduction in hormones due to menopause, although that is another obvious reason. There are many common reasons that physicians can find and help you with. Im not dealing with the easy, obvious reasons for hair loss today. I want to tackle the harder, overlooked causes.

I think millions of you reading this today will benefit. At the end of the day, I feel like this: If you cant figure out the root cause of the hair loss, you are never going to solve it! So I want to help you determine the root cause because hair is important to many people. The loss of it makes people avoid looking in the mirror.

Statin Use.

People with elevated cholesterol sometimes take statin medications such as atorvastatin to help improve their ratios. A well-documented side effect of this category of medications is reduced production of thyroid hormone. And that leads to hair loss. This was exactly the problem with my friend the other day she told me she had been on a statin drug for about 2 or 3 years, and thats when her problem began. Statins, through their drug mugging effect, lead to reduced hair growth and extra shedding.

The fix for statins:Since you cant discontinue your medication, the fix for this problem is simple. Id suggest you talk to your physician and get a prescription for Cytomel or Compounded T3 timed release, or the generic drug Liothyronine which is a biologically active form of thyroid hormone. All of these require a prescription. You could also try a good thyroid supplement to support thyroid hormone synthesis. You may also want to look into one particular mineral called selenium.

Selenium supplementation all by itself may be useful because statins are a drug mugger of selenium, and without that mineral, you could become hypothyroid. For that matter, coffee is a drug mugger of iron and magnesium which also leads to hypothyroidism. You can watch my shortVIDEOabout that.

Im not recommending all of the above options, Im just giving you choices to consider. Work with your physician to determine what is best with you.

COVID.Aside from lingering issues like inability to smell properly, C*V1D can cause hair loss. A Lancet STUDY showed that 22% of hospitalized patients reported hair loss 6 months later. Its from increased hair shedding. We know that tremendous stress on the body leads to hair loss, and the hair loss occurs months later. So it may be a combination of stress from hospitalization, as well as something that the virus itself does to the body. Either way, this is a consideration for many people today who have had the respiratory illness, and now suddenly have wads of hair falling out. I would think it is temporary.

The fixfor illness:The fix here would be time and probiotics. Time will allow your body to reduce all those stress chemicals that you had during illness. The probiotics havethe ability to counteract hair loss by supporting your bodyin a unique way more specifically they can help manage new hair growth and support the health of your hair follicles which enable faster hair growth.

Certainly, other factors may be involved like antibody formation to ones own hair follicles, but that has yet to be teased out. It may very well also cause telogen effluvium which I will discuss next.

Antibiotics and Antifungals.Many people today are treating themselves for mold illness or other infections such as Lyme disease, H. pylori, SIBO, or even acne. The medications that kill organisms are well known to cause hair loss, and this begins about 2 to 4 months into drug therapy. Its often overlooked by doctors who have one goal in mind, that is to cure your infection.

But the hair loss can be profound and frightening to the patient, so Im listing this category of medications so you understand what is happening and can take action. Itraconazole therapy is widely known to cause hair loss, and the first case study I could find was from 1986. Its no secret, but the importance of this medication and similar ones for serious illness cannot be dismissed, nor can they be discontinued if they are for a life-threatening systemic infection.

The antibiotics and antifungals can interfere with your normal cycle of hair growth. The term for this is called Telogen effluvium which causes the hair roots to be forced into a resting state. Telogen hair shedding is a condition can be acute or chronic and with medications, I would guess its chronic until discontinuation of the offending agent. After that it may take 6 months to a year to regrow.

The fix for antibiotics and anti-fungals:Probiotics can help for the same reason I explained earlier in this article. Probiotics have a counter effect to the intestinal damage done by the antibiotics. Looking into natural remedies may also be useful to some of you if the medications are too harsh. For example, Oil of Oregano and Enteric Coated Peppermint Oil capsules, Andrographis, and even Berberine are useful for some situations like SIBO, and Lyme, systemic mycosis and more! There are hundreds of choices when it comes to natural antimicrobials. If you can talk to your doctor about using more simple remedies, then perhaps the hair loss will not be so profound.

Collagen Loss.As we age, our ability to produce collagen diminishes. Because collagen protects the skin, and the layer of skin that holds the hair roots, it may help indirectly with age-related hair loss. To be clear, collagen is not really in the hair, it simply supports the hair follicle. Collagen production goes down with age, so its one piece of the puzzle.

The fix for collagen loss:Consider collagen peptides which go on to form collagen in the body. It can support healthy beautiful skin, as well as hair since the collagen peptides help build hair proteins and strengthen skin around your hair roots.

Reduced Parathyroid Hormone.The condition is termed Hypoparathyroidism. This has nothing to do with the thyroid gland, it is another set of glands that reside behind your thyroid gland, and there are four of them. The parathyroid glands regulate calcium and produce parathyroid hormone or PTH.

Symptoms of low parathyroid hormone include brittle nails, patchy hair loss, thinning eyebrows, anxiety and sometimes muscle weakness, fatigue and headaches. Most doctors do not test for the condition, but its quite common. So is the opposite condition called Hyperparathyroidism where the parathyroid glands produce too much parathyroid hormone (PTH).

If you have low PTH, you will experience hair loss and you can go for years without them figuring this out!

The fix for low PTH:Test yourself by self-ordering your own blood test, or asking your doctor to test forPTH hormone, along with vitamin D, serum calcium and ionized calcium.All four of these tests is critical. You will go from there when you get your results because the treatment for low PTH is different than the treatment for high PTH.

Oftentimes, the treatment for low PTH is simple, and nutrients are used, or PTH hormone is given to restore declining levels. But either way, at least you will know if your hair loss is being driven by a problem of the parathyroid glands. There is more information in thisPAPER

for doctors reading this today who want to understand the mechanisms behind the PTH-driven hair loss.

A PTH blood test, along with the others listed above is a very simple, affordable way to evaluate any person experiencing chronic fatigue and hair loss! If left untreated, the PTH imbalance can lead to heart problems such as Left Ventricular Hypertrophy and more. The best site for information on the parathyroid gland isparathyroid.com.Ive also written an article about calcium and PTH which may be useful and it is availableHERE.

Autoimmune Process.Many people suffer with autoimmune disease and do not even know it. Thats because the symptoms get treated one by one, with one medication at a time.You have joint pain, you get celecoxib.You have fatigue, or night sweats, youll be given an antidepressant or estrogen drug.You have neuropathy, you get gabapentin.You have a few white spots on your skin, so now you get clobetasol or betamethasone.You get a low thyroid test, so you are put on levothyroxine.You have dry eyes or dry cough, youll be given a few more drugs!

All of these symptoms could actually be autoimmune driven. In the same respective order, it would look like this:

You have joint pain, it might be Rheumatoid Arthritis.You have neuropathy, it could be Small Fiber Neuropathy, Multiple Sclerosis or Autoimmune NeuropathyYou have fatigue, or night sweats, it may be Sarcoidosis.You have a few white spots on your skin, you could have Vitiligo.You have dry eyes or dry cough, you may have Sjgrensdisease.You get a bad thyroid test, you may haveHashimotos thyroiditisorGraves disease.

My point is to make you wonder if youve been diagnosed properly, because if you have any one of these autoimmune disorders, you could also have antibodies against your own hair follicles. Hair loss is very common with all of the conditions above. Autoimmune illness is a very common, but overlooked cause for hair loss. Another one that comes to mind that I didnt list above is Celiac disease. Because the gut cannot absorb all the nutrients like normal, a deficiency may occur, which then affects hair growth. Many laboratories today test for autoimmune illness.

The fix for autoimmune process:First of all, make sure you are diagnosed properly. If you think your hair loss is being driven by an autoimmune process, you can look into new, appropriate methods of treatment. What I mean specifically, is if you are only being treated for dry eyes with a fish oil supplement, but you find out that you actually have Sjgrens, then you can get proper treatment for the Sjgrens and that in and of itself may slow down the hair loss. Improper treatment of an autoimmune process only allows the self-attack to continue. So one fix is getting adequate, proper treatment for your specific illness and your physician will help you do that. The other fix for an autoimmune illness is to improve your diet. Nothing makes the body weaker than eating junk food, and exposing yourself to more free radicals which increase the inflammatory cytokines. So a clean, healthy, well-balanced diet is critical. Gluten and casein are two common proteins which exacerbate autoimmunity.

In closing, there are many common, but overlooked causes for hair loss. I encourage you to do more searching into the possible reasons behind your hair loss, and not to give up. As always, I would urge you to consider taking nutrients that are known to support hair growth and eating a healthy diet that excludes unhealthy oils and refined or manufactured foods. I would also encourage you to avoid excessive or harsh hair treatments which can ultimately contribute to hair loss.

How To Look Less Tired According To Experts | Grazia – Grazia

By daniellenierenberg

Whether you're still coming to terms with that earlier pre-commute wake-up call or being kept awake by the little ones on the nightly, it's likely you're feeling (and seeing) the results of disrupted sleep. According to a study from the University of Southampton, the number of people experiencing insomnia rose from one in six to one in four during the height of the pandemic and the majority are experiencing more of the same.

'The last 18 months have been turbulent, and we need to prioritise sleep more than ever', says Dr Anna Persaud, CEO of This Works. 'It is essential good health, well-being and quality of life.'

Nights spent tossing and turning have an impact on our energy levels and yes, our skin too.

Skin cells have their own schedule. Sleep paves the way for their 'repair and renew' phase, that's when stem cells work to replace old cells with bright, shiny, new fully-functioning ones. The less sleep we get, the less efficient this process is. Enter dull, lacklustre skin. So, how to combat it?

According to skincare and laser specialist Debbie Thomas, gentle exfoliation can mimic the glow you get from a great night's sleep. 'To brighten up the skin first of all address your exfoliation. Gentle and regular is best, I always recommend a liquid exfoliator over a scrub, think acids or enzymes.'

Work vitamin C into your morning skincare routine too. 'Vitamin C is known for its brightening qualities,' explains Thomas, 'and with consistent use it also helps boost collagen levels too.' Never underestimate a two-pronged approach.

Who doesn't wake up with a slightly puffy face in the morning? Puffiness comes from fluid retention and fluid retention can be eased with a gentle lymphatic drainage massage. 'De-puffing your face takes a little gentle arm work', says Thomas. 'While washing your face with a slippery cleanser, use the heel of your hand to firmly massage up and out in sweeping movements to push the fluid build-up towards your ears and the lymph nodes. The idea is to push up to lift then sweep out to drain. Just make sure that your skin is a little slippery so that you aren't tugging at it.'

'For puffy eyes specifically, reach for something cold,' advises Thomas. 'Holding something cold against your eye area helps to tone down inflammation and puffiness. If you don't own a cryo-massage tool then grab an ice cube with some tissue, let it warm enough to be slippery on your skin then sweep it around your eyes and over your skin for 1-2 minutes.'

It goes without saying, but routine is key says This Works sleep expert Dr Anna Persaud. 'On a practical level establishing and maintaining a nightly wind down or sleep routine helps to reset and rebalance our minds. Try dimming lights, limiting brain stimulation - for example turning off Netflix an hour earlier and disconnecting from our devices - can help to signal to our brain that it is time to sleep.'

And from a beauty perspective? Never knock the instant results of a decent under-eye concealer.
