Most of us have experienced dry skin, especially during autumn and winter. The worst affected areas tend to be those that come into direct contact with the elements, like dry air, wind, and sunlight.  Dry skin in winter is primarily the result of too little humidity in the air – as air gets colder, it holds less moisture.

Skin dryness can also begin the formation of fine lines or wrinkles.1 So before any damage sets in, it’s...

Fighting back against thinning hair

Fighting back against thinning hair

While the quantity of hair on people’s heads can vary, each of us has about 100,000 hair follicles and it’s normal for a person to shed about 50 to 100 individual hairs per day. Thinning hair occurs when we start to see an increase in those numbers. It can be caused by hereditary factors or hormonal changes. On occasion, sudden hair loss or the development of bald patches or head itchiness can also occur, which should signal the need for a consultation with a medical professional.  For the most part, however, thinning hair may simply be due to getting older....
