Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2005
Every year thousands of tourists flock to the Dead Sea in Israel and Jordan to bathe in the healing waters of the sea. The Dead Sea region is highly recognized through out the world for its excellent benefits in treating a wide range of dermatological diseases, rheumatic ailments and respiratory disorders.
The main reason for this popularity with skin care conscious people is that the Dead Sea contains the highest concentration of salts and minerals out of every body of water in the world. This high natural presence of minerals essential to a healthy skin, coupled with the fact that The Dead Sea is the lowest point on the face of the earth — creates a unique environment of natural health benefits. The region has been a source of fascination throughout the millennia, dating back to the time of Cleopatra who made this captivating oasis her own personal health spa. Although the Dead Sea is better known for the recent discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls which have a high religious value and significance, it is quickly becoming very popular for the skin care benefits that Dead Sea cosmetics provide.
There are many skin care and Dead Sea cosmetic products manufactured using these healthy minerals. These beauty products range from hand and body lotions, to salt scrubs to nail care treatments. The most popular of these home spa products, however, is Dead Sea salt, used in bathing or rubbing onto the skin in the shower. Dead Sea bath salts have been proven to be effective at treating and relieving a wide range of skin ailments most commonly psoriasis, as well as acne, eczema and dry skin. They also effectively cleanse the skin, while toning and firming it and enriching it with the essential minerals which allow it to maintain its natural moisture.
Another popular cosmetic and health product from the Dead Sea are salt scrubs which are made with Dead Sea salt. These scrubs have become a popular commodity among skin care enthusiasts due to their excellent exfoliating and moisturizing properties. The scrubs are a combination of Dead Sea salt and aromatic natural oils and are available in various scents and aromas. People who suffer from psoriasis and eczema have found a relief in the famous Dead Sea mud which is applied to the affected areas of the skin and can drastically reduce the visible effects of psoriasis and eczema diseases. Due to its high mineral content and the fact that its an all natural psoriasis treatment, Dead Sea mud has become a popular way to relieve the dry, itch scaly skin that is associated with psoriasis.
Many Americans are discovering Dead Sea cosmetics during tourist trips to Israel and visits to the Dead Sea. If they have relatives in Israel, many have their family continue to send them these skin care products that they have come to love. Fortunately, there are several companies that have now taken on importing these beauty spa products and now offer them direct to their customers in the United States.
My friend told me that he dipped his arm into Dead Sea mud while on a trip to Israel and it softened and cleared up his psoriasis for a whole week. I decided to try it for myself because I suffer from psoriasis on my elbow. I ordered some mud online and got it in a couple of days. I was surprised because it really worked! I wasnt cured by any means, but any one who has psoriasis knows that any natural remedy that actually works is our lifesaver. says Don Murra of Manhattan Beach, California.

Beverly Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) September 25, 2006
Many of todays herbal remedies are far from household names: Arctic Root, Bladder Wrack, and Cats Claw. However, there is one herb with health and beauty benefits that is as close to you as your pantry: Turmeric. Derived by grinding the yellow, ginger-like roots from a small plant, native to India, into a powder or paste, Turmeric has a history of healing that dates back 5,000 7,000 years ago to the Vedic Texts that outline the practice of Ayurveda (the science of longevity). Here is a quick lesson on the healing, balancing and beautifying properties of this time-honored spice.
Sacred Turmeric and the Asian Culture
The Turmeric plant is sacred to the Himalayan Monks and plays an important role in their herbal rituals. In many Asian cultures, brides and grooms are anointed with Turmeric on their wedding day in order to balance their mind, body and spirit and prepare them for their new roles as husband and wife. In addition, mixing Turmeric with lime creates the distinctive red forehead mark of spiritual followers the kumkuma. Turmeric is also added to the water used daily in the ritual ablution of the Deities and mixed with unpolished rice as an important offering during puja (prayer).
Turmeric and the Fight against Cancer and Other Diseases
Ayurvedic doctors have long used Turmeric as a medicine for treating diabetes, wounds/bruises, skin rashes, arthritis, bronchitis and liver problems. Today, Western medicine is discovering that this powerful spice also can help the body battle cancer. Recently, researchers at Detroits Henry Ford Health System found that the active ingredient in Turmeric, curcumin, can boost the cancer-fighting power of treatment with a naturally occurring molecule called TRAIL, which helps combat cancer cells. Other studies have found Turmeric to be as effective as hydrocortisone in treating cases of arthritis and acute inflammation without side effects. Turmeric also has important antibacterial properties and is effective in killing Salmonella and E. Coli bacteria.
Turmeric and Beauty
Asian women rely on Turmeric to help them achieve younger-looking, smoother, more brighter and radiant skin. This ancient beauty secret is often applied to the body in paste form before a bath to cleanse and revitalize the skin, achieving tighter pores and refined skin texture. Turmeric also is widely recognized to have antioxidant qualities, which fight free radicals and thereby help slow the aging process. For such skin problems as rashes or acne, sandalwood extract is often added to the formula to enhance its antibacterial action.
Turmeric and You
Before you run for the spice rack to douse yourself with a layer of this beneficial spice, take a deep, cleansing breath and relax. BODY BISTRO the worlds most authentic, comprehensive line of Ayurvedically based skin and body care products can bring the benefits of Turmeric to your beauty regimen with skin and body care products formulated with the most effective, pure extracts of Turmeric available.

Everyone knows it. Age spots on our skin make us appear many years older than our true ages. In preparation for summer, dermatologist Joshua Fox, M.D., says there are many treatments available to reduce or remove these age spots, helping us to look years younger.
Age spots are flat, light or dark brown marks that develop on the skin as we age. They appear mainly on areas exposed most to the sun, including the face, hands, shoulders and arms. Dr. Fox says that age spots, more correctly called lentigines, are caused by overexposure to the sun, which damages skin. Often, once you start to see age spots, he says, youll also see other signs of sun damage including deep wrinkles, dry rough skin, fine red veins and thinner, more translucent-looking skin.
Typically considered to affect people over age 40, younger people who spend a great deal of time in the sun may see age spots too. While true age spots are harmless, they may resemble cancerous growths, says Dr. Fox. For that reason, if you start to see age spots on your skin, ask your dermatologist to look at them to make sure they are not suspicious, adds Dr. Fox.
If you notice any new mark on your skin, or if an existing mark has any changes in color or shape, your doctor will determine if it is cancerous or something to be concerned about, Dr. Fox says. He explains that melanoma is the most dangerous of all skin cancer types, resulting in over 80,000 cases per year. The good news, he adds, is that most brown spots are not harmful and can be removed or easily treated to improve the skins appearance and make you look younger.
Once your doctor has ruled out skin cancer, there are several different home remedies and in-office treatments that can help reduce or remove the age spots, Dr. Fox says.
Once age spots have developed, Dr. Fox says, they can attempt to be lightened safely with skin-bleaching lotions and creams that can be purchased in department stores, drug stores and online. However, Dr. Fox adds that this typically only results in a small improvement. Successful treatment needs to penetrate the topmost layer of skin where the extra pigment is located, so the products must be used regularly over several weeks or months before noticeable results occur. When choosing a nonprescription fade cream, choose one that contains hydroquinone, deoxyarbutin, glycolic acid or kojic acid.
If these over-the-counter products dont do enough to reduce the spots, and Dr. Fox adds that most people do not get satisfactory results from these lotions and creams, your dermatologist has an arsenal of other treatments that do a great job of reducing or removing age spots, Dr. Fox says, listing the top six in-office treatments.
Prescription creams. Bleaching creams containing hydroquinone, used alone or with retinoids and a mild steroid, when used regularly, may partially fade age spots over time.
Q-Switched Lasers. Laser treatments performed in your dermatologists office can remove sun spots, brown spots and liver spots. These treatments work by being very specific for brown color and selectively removing the lesions.
Microdermabrasion. In this procedure, the skin is sanded with a special instrument to lessen the age spot. This procedure helps to strengthen and rejuvenate aging skin, and may even help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Cryosurgery. This procedure uses liquid nitrogen to freeze skin tissue and remove age spots.
Chemical Peel. Chemical peels are a powerful treatment that not only help reduce and remove age spots, but can also strengthen the skin to boost collagen production. A chemical peel involves applying an acid, which burns the outer layer of your skin. As the skin peels, new skin forms to take its place.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation Fraxel and Pixel. A popular cosmetic treatment, Fraxel is a powerful resurfacing laser treatment that smoothes and rejuvenates the skin, removes age spots and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Pixel is a more powerful resurfacing laser which also treats some of the deeper lines.
Dr. Fox adds that prevention, or reducing exposure to the sun, is the best way to reduce the likelihood of getting age spots. Wear sunscreen all the time on all areas of exposed skin, no matter what the weather or season. If you must be in the sun, even in winter, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen (which blocks both UVA and UVB rays) with an SPF of at least 15.
While aging does cause a host of changes to our bodies, our skin doesnt have to make us look or feel old, says Dr. Fox. A consultation with your dermatologist can help you identify the right treatment for you that will reduce or even remove age spots and leave you feeling and looking younger, adds Dr. Fox.
About Dr. Fox: Joshua L. Fox, M.D., F.A.A.D., earned his medical degree from the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York. He completed an internship at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn, followed by a three-year dermatology residency at the New York University School of Medicine. A Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, Dr. Fox is a leading authority in the field of dermatology, with an expertise in skin cancer, cosmetic surgery and laser procedures. He is the founder and director of Advanced Dermatology, P.C. of New York and New Jersey and the Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery and is a spokesman for both the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 23, 2010
Reality television star Heidi Montag, who admitted having 10 plastic surgery procedures done in one day and said she nearly died from an overdose of the pain medication Demerol administered as part of the treatment, has cast a negative pall on American womens obsession with beauty. This 24-year-old celebrity has undergone breast augmentation, collagen lip injections, Rhinoplasty, brow lifts, ear pinnings, a chin reduction and reshaping, and more all after the already attractive young woman was cast on the MTV series The Hills.
Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Raval, MD, FACS, medical director of Rocky Mountain Laser Aesthetics, calls Montags course of action far too drastic and advises that the development of the latest in medical lasers he has recently deployed in his clinic offer most women economical, non-invasive beauty and anti-aging treatments with great results and far less risk.
Im a plastic surgeon, so I understand the desire to enhance ones beauty, but Montag crossed the line, says Dr. Raval. In some cases, particularly for older women looking to combat aging and the youth culture, some plastic surgery may be the appropriate treatment. But for enhancing beauty, smoothing out wrinkles and overall skin rejuvenation, we now have medical laser treatments that restore, enhance and maintain beauty without the obsession. The Montag surgery media coverage has created a frenzy of inquiries, and women need to know that modern medicine offers a wealth of better alternatives.
Dr. Raval says that modern laser technology under the guidance of a professional offers economical and non-invasive relief for such conditions as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, sun spots and sun damage, freckles, broken blood vessels, and more.
For most women, the issues of aging or skin conditions detracting from beauty are relatively minor the desire to ease wrinkles or age lines, small facial discoloring from years of sun exposure, burst capillaries or rosacea, says Dr. Raval. We have a number of techniques employing state-of-the-art medical lasers that can restore a youthful appearance with minimal downtime and great results.
At Rocky Mountain Laser Aesthetics, it all begins with the Visia System, an imaging technology that provides a clear, multi-dimensional portrait of a patients skin condition, both topically and subsurface. Using Visia, the highly trained technicians identify wrinkles and wrinkle depths, spots, blocked pores, color variations, UV photodamage, and even more serious conditions like potentially cancerous spots, and then recommend a complete facial rejuvenation regimen to enhance beauty and restore a more youthful complexion.
Depending on the unique situation of each patient, Rocky Mountain Laser Aesthetics offers a broad array of laser and combination services to achieve the desired results, such as:
