Dr. Oz: Ways To Help Reverse the Sun Damage On Your skin
When you are under the sun too much and too long, then eventually you’ll get sun spots and age spots, as these two go together. For many of us, Retinol is a popular solution to skin damage. Retinol is a form of VitA, but the biggest misconception is that all VitA products are manufactured equally. That’s not necessarily the case.
Dr. Oz gives the following advice on how to get the most effective over-the-counter concentration:
- Use 0.1% retinol concentration, packaged in an aluminium tube which better preserves the product.
- Avoid ProRetinols: Retinyl Palmitate, Retinyl Acetate, and Retinyl Linoleate. Don’t get these vitA derivatives because it’s just a waste of your money.
- Use it at night because the sun during the day doesn’t help you with it.
- Start with 3 times of application per week.
Dr. Oz: How To Reverse the Damage Done To Your Liver
In this portion, Dr. Oz explains that when we eat too much junk food too many times, your liver keeps busy cleaning up those junks and tosses them away. But with the amount of junk food and alcohol you’re taking, your liver will never be able to keep up with its cleanup job. So the toxins linger in your body, and if you can’t get rid of them, they turn into fat in the hips and waist that you don’t want to have. These toxins will also irritate other organs which will have unhealthy impact on you. So what we do now is to reverse that process.
Dr. Oz recommends taking liver detox supplement called Hepasil DTX USANA which has a key ingredient with olive extract that helps remove extra toxins in the body. When you help your liver, you are contributing to your overall wellness because your liver is the most able to resuscitate all other organs in the body. Usana has a unique combination that helps protect and maintain healthy liver.
