Managing Digestive Disorders

My name is Lilith Maclin and if you suffer from a digestive disorder, you can find a wealth of information about this type of medical condition in my blog. Three years ago, my husband was having severe stomach cramps and his doctor told him that he had a digestive disorder called ulcerative colitis. After my husband was diagnosed, I did thorough research to learn how to control and manage this disorder. We kept track of everything that my husband ate and when a certain food caused a flare-up of his condition, he eliminated that food from his diet. By learning all we could about this digestive disorder, my husband has been able to live pain free. If you want more information about this disorder and how to manage it, you can find it here by reading my blog.

How To Reverse Sun Damage

Louella Davidson

If you are like the majority of people, you have forgotten to wear sunscreen at least once in your life, most likely more than once. This can and does result in sun damage to your skin. If you want to keep your skin looking youthful, healthy, and vibrant for many years to come, you are probably looking for ways to reverse the effects of the sun on your skin. Sun damage repair is not only possible, but is readily available in a variety of forms. All you need to do is learn your options and give them a try:

Skin "Bleaching"

One of the most common methods used to repair the damage done to the skin by the sun is by using a technique known as skin "bleaching." However, in spite of its name, skin bleaching has nothing to do with actual bleach. 

Skin bleaching agents are chemicals that reduce the amount of melanin your skin produces. This is a particularly effective treatment if you have dark or brown spots as a result of repeated overexposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. 

Stay Hydrated

When your skin is overexposed to the sun, it gets dried out and loses much of the moisture that keeps it elastic, and looking fresh and young. So, any time you want to attain optimal sun damage repair results, you will need to hydrate.

This means both your skin and your body. So, lather on the moisturizing lotions and start drinking lots of water to keep your skin hydrated from the outside and the inside. 

Eat Healthy 

Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it is not immune to the effects of poor nutrition. Foods that are high in antioxidants such as melatonin, an antioxidant that is vital for skin health, should become a regular part of your daily diet.

Cherries are an excellent source of melatonin.  Other sources of antioxidants include green tea, pomegranates, blueberries, and cranberries.

On top of ensuring that you get enough antioxidants, you should also incorporate foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids into your diet. Omega-3's are abundant in fish such as salmon and tuna, but can also be found in edamame, tofu, and flax seeds.

By eating healthy and balanced diet, you will provide your skin with the proper nutrients that it needs to heal itself and reverse the effects of sun damage.

If you want comprehensive sun damage repair, you will need to use various methods, both on the surface of your skin and from the inside, out. If you use these methods, you will ensure that you get the best possible results.
