Studies show that people who sleep between 6.5 hours and 7.5 hours a
night, as they report, live the longest. And people who sleep 8 hours
or more, or less than 6.5 hours, they don't live quite as long.
We wrote on a controversial skincare tips webpage in 1998:
Sleep: OVERRATED as long as you get 6-7 hours per night. More than 9 hours per night actually accelerates aging.
This sunblock (called a suncream, and from the land down under) is probably the best widely available mineral-based sunblock.
10% zinc oxide and 5% titanium dioxide, to be exact. It looks very conspicuous when applied, so don't expect stealth usage.
But, this fine heliophobe product has a very useful surprise: it comes gadgetized with a bottle that turns blue when exposed to UVA light (in proportion to the amount hitting it).
When I go to my bi-weekly D&D meets, I discreetly keep the bottle on my lap to monitor the amount of UVA light in the room, since there is a window near me with white venetian blinds, and the sun beams right in, though not directly striking me.
For those interested in the results: though the room seems bright with visible light, there are very few UVA beams bouncing around. The bottle does not turn blue at all, and this bottle is sensitive to the slightest ultraviolet intrusion, so it will pick it up if it is present. So, window glass and white venetian blinds do greatly diminish UVA penetration.
I keep forgetting, or am too lazy, to bring a large black sheet or blanket or fabric to cover the window completely, so I stress out every time, my stress being made easier only by the Blue Lizard gadget bottle.
This AOL Condition Center feature is for menopausal women with dry skin in particular, but the general moisturizing suggestions contained therein are applicable to anyone looking for a quick start up.
And, it is succinctly encapsulated and thus of use to the uncertain but interested type looking for a brief tutorial to get up to speed so that he or she can commence a lifelong antiaging regimen that especially includes lots and lots of enriching, skin plumping oils.
Although we usually prefer Veggie Heaven, Starbucks, Thai, Indian or something similar where I can find something vegan and at least somewhat healthy, the dreamster and I do occasionally head to a Houlihans or an americana-laden diner for more indulgent fare.
This list confirms my suspicions: I knew the calories were out of control on some entrees and appetizers, and here are the numbers.
Though, I do believe that a ratio between nutrition and calories would be most effective, with the higher the nutrition to calorie ratio, the better.
And, yes, I know AOL has taken a major cred hit lately, but I still find the health, lifestyle and other generic info useful and, due to force of habit and satisfaction, am ever loyal.
I love the Prevention.com website, though the magazine is a cheap, dime-store, supermarket impulse buy piece of junk. There must be 2 separate and distinct teams at work here.
Everything on the website is made so delightful, inspiring and light. The magazine, on the other hand, has a resonation somewhere between People and TV Guide.
Just wanna give some props to a fine and enjoyable visit. The link below is not to the homepage but to an example of the fine polish, production and, most importantly, content that pervades and dominates the site.
