"Copper builds up the collagen and elastin of the skin that holds the hair follicle," said Dr. Ellen Marmur, a board-certified dermatologist and associate clinical professor in the department of dermatology and the department of genetics and genomic research at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.
Copper also helps to balance the hormones so hair grows strong and aids other reactions in the scalp that strengthen lipids in the hair. Other copper-rich foods include shellfish, veal, beef, whole grains, dark leafy green vegetables, beans and legumes, nuts and chocolate. #FoxNews

EAT COOL & BEAT THE HEAT: The hot months are here... you can expect more people to get irritable & spot longer queues at the doctor's.
The solution isn't gulping down icy-cold cans of cola, though - that only gives you temporary respite, and may even disorientate your digestive system!
What your body needs is proper 'cooling' foods to remove the excess heat.
The notion of 'cooling' and 'heat-y' foods comes from concepts in traditional Chinese and Indian science of healing. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it is believed that one has to balance the cooling ('yin') and heat-y ('yang') aspects of our body in order to achieve good health. Such a concept is not peculiar to TCM, as it is also one that Indian traditional science, Ayurveda, follows. In Ayurveda, it is believed that it is important to balance the heat in the body (pitta) in order to maintain a good digestive system and general health, and cooling foods need to be consumed in order to remove the excess 'pitta'.
Regardless of whether you naturally have a lot of 'pitta' or 'yang' in your body constitution, in the hot months, your body acquires more heat, and you certainly need to feed your body with 'cooling' foods in order to strike a balance and keep your body systems sane. #YahooSingapore #Makansutra

In fact one in five women develops acne after 25 even if they've never had it before.
"Even short bouts of pressure can cause uncharacteristic blemishes," says naturopath Dr Nigma Talib.
"Stress kickstarts your adrenal glands to produce excessive amounts of sebum-producing hormones which can clog pores."
Fix it: Don't let standards slip just because you're stressed. "When you put unhealthy food in your mouth any toxins your body can't process come out through your pores instead," warns Dr Talib.
"I recommend daily raw green veg smoothies, they're high in fibre which binds to toxins to keep your internal system clean."
SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense Cleansing Gel, (01209 617146), also helps normalise sebum production.

The foods our bodies require for glowing skin requires a combination of anti inflammatory foods rich in vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids.
Anti-inflammatory foods not only helps keep your skin looking flawless but help support insulin and blood sugar levels in your body.

Your skin will be the barometer of these illnesses. Inflammation can be described in the body like a slow burning fire to a blazing fire, damaging the body slowly to quickly.

Acupuncture is an alternative medicine that treats patients by insertion and manipulation of fine specialized needles in the body. The aim of inserting needles is to restore this flow of energy.

Research has shown that during times of stress, people tend to frown more often. Chronic frowning as I call it can create deep permanent lines without you even knowing it over time. Adding fuel to the fire, the hormone cortisol, the primary hormone that our bodies secrete when we are under stress also increases. This means that whenever we're under stress, we're exposed to effects of Cortisol which isn't bad in and of itself, it is a normal part of our physiological make up, but when we are exposed to too much of it on an ongoing basis due to living in an "overbooked way of life" and undernourished, cortisol can cause dysfunction in every tissue of the body and cause premature aging. #HealthyDoc

One of the most obvious indicators of our age can be our skin; while our skin is a reflection of external care and maintenance, it is also a window into the state of your internal health and well being . Based on my clinical experience, high levels of stress even in small spurts, can age you by a decade or even more. But the good news is that you can turn back the clock by modulating the way your genes express themselves by changing your diet, lifestyle, supplements and your daily skin care regime. #HealthyDoc
