Why Go for Silicone Sheets to Treat Your Scars

Posted in Scar Removal on 08.09.12 by Merlyn

While it is true that there are many scar treatments available, creams and lotions being the most common, there is no denying that more and more people place their trust on silicone sheets to make their scar less visible.

After all, next to plastic surgery, it is said that silicone sheeting is the next most effective in dealing with scars. So, if you are disappointed with how your scar treatment creams or lotions that you use, it’s high time that you deal with your scars using silicone sheeting.

Non-Invasive Treatment

As already mentioned, one of the things that make silicone sheeting a great treatment is that it works as good as laser treatment, but is not as costly and painful. Silicone sheets work best for keloidal scars, however, they can almost work for almost all kinds of scars.

Easy to Use

Another thing that makes silicone sheeting a great scar treatment is that it is easy to use the silicone sheets. These sheets are lined with silicone on one side and plastic or cloth on the other.

They can be cut to suit the size of the scar where it will be placed. The best thing is that the sheets can be washed and reused. So, you don’t really have to spend a lot of money on it.

The Disadvantages of Silicone Sheeting

Because silicone sheets have to be worn all the time for several weeks, it is obvious that one of the disadvantages of this scar treatment is that it can spell inconvenience to the user.

As compared to creams and lotions applied to scars, silicone sheets remain visible as they do their job. Another thing that makes silicone sheeting at a disadvantage is that the stickiness of the self-adhesive sheets can be affected by the oiliness of the skin.

Silicone Sheets are Still the Better Choice

Despite these disadvantages, though, it can be said that silicone sheets are still better than scar treatment creams and lotions. For one thing, the effects of silicone sheets deliver permanent results.

Thus, the improving of the texture and the lightening of the color of the scars can never be removed. However, in contrast to creams and lotions, the results can be gone if application is halted even just for weeks.

So, would you still go for scar treatment creams or lotions, or would you choose silicone sheets? The choice is yours.

Why Buy Silicone Sheets Online

Because this is the Internet era, it is not really surprising why more and more people these days prefer to shop online, including scar treatment products.

There is nothing really surprising about it because, apart from the wide array of choices that one can have, it is also customary for online stores to give tremendous discounts to those who buy in bulk.

Of course, you may say that you don’t need to buy a lot of sheets because you can reuse them after washing them, right. Sure, you have a point. However, you’ll never know when you can have scars again. If you want, you can sell them to other people.

Scars may not be totally eradicated with the use of silicone sheets, but improvements are guaranteed. Without question, it is one of the most admired scar treatments.

How Good Nutrition Wards Off Cellulite

Posted in Cellulite on 05.03.11 by Merlyn

You may be suffering from a very unsightly skin condition called cellulite. You may have an orange peel-like skin texture that stops you from wearing your favorite clothes.

Cellulite development can be due to an uneven distribution of fats as wells as the presence of wastes and water which accumulate under your skin.

The Factors

The dimpling on your thighs, upper arms, belly and buttocks are due to several factors. Are you too lazy to engage in a regular exercise program? You know very well how exercise is good for the health.

It also improves circulation and strengthens muscles and even connective tissues. When there is a good blood flow to your skin, the accumulated wastes may be eliminated.

Your connective tissue is strengthened through exercise and a good circulation. This offers you a stronger resistance against the fat cells that are pushing against this layer.

In cellulite development, these fat cells herniate forming clusters and lumps that are visible on the skin. This explains why you must have a tough connective tissue layer in order to prevent cellulite.

The Food You Eat

It is important that you detoxify your body from various wastes. A great way of detoxifying is eating healthy foods and shunning the unhealthy ones. Avoid saturated fats, foods that are low in glycemic index, sweets, smoking and alcohol.

Cellulite may be more visible because of the retained fluids under the skin so it is important that you eat low-salt meals. The more you eat high sodium foods, the greater the extent of fluid retention.

A Healthy Diet

Eating small frequent meals is highly advisable in order to prevent or treat cellulite. Avoid eating junk foods that are rich in sodium or salt. Eating what is considered organic or natural is also recommended by experts.

Antioxidant-rich foods can also help you with your problems with cellulite. There are several reasons why you need to take vitamins and one of which is that they may help you develop a healthier skin that can prevent cellulite development.

A high fiber diet helps in eliminating free radicals which are toxic wastes in the body. This may break down the collagen of the skin which keeps your skin tough against the fat cells which are the culprit to cellulite formation.

Also, a high protein diet may help in enhancing the production of collagen and elastin which are protein compounds that serve as your skin’s framework and maintains its elasticity.

Water

Though retained water can worsen the appearance of cellulite under your skin, it is vital that you drink plenty of fluids. This flushes the wastes that may accumulate and together with fat can form clusters or lumps that make your skin appear like a cottage cheese.

Make it a habit to drink at least six to eight glasses of plain water.

Cellulite are Highly Preventable

Skin care experts will tell you that cellulites are highly preventable. Feasting on healthy foods and establishing a healthy eating habit can help you prevent as well as reduce the appearance of the unsightly lumps.
