Male Age Spots

Historically men have ignored their health to a great degree, especially when it comes to something as trivial as male age spots. But as a man gets to be in his thirties and begins to see health issues cropping up among his peers, he begins to get nervous. Usually not nervous enough to see a doctor on his own.

For that there seems to be an intervention needed by a caring wife, girlfriend, sister or mother. Of course there are guys mature enough to look after themselves, but sad to say the majority prefer to stick their heads in the sand, much like an ostrich.

Serious symptoms may scare a man enough to seek help. Or vanity issues like balding. And surely they will seek help for erectile dysfunction. They'll try anything to fix that and it's understandable. But when it comes to something as trivial as male age spots, a guy will tend to ignore them. After a while, though, as the brown spots become more prominent, no man will be happy to walk around with male age spots.

I have personally recommended a whitening cream to men in my circle who have that problem. There are now whitening creams that are head and shoulders above anything that has existed in the past. The new science of anti aging has found a way to help guys who have been clueless about damage they've been accumulating, for years, from the ultraviolet rays of the sun.

Just try and get a guy to apply a good layer of sunblock when he's going to be out in the sun. Not easy. Not until he gets older and begins to see age creeping up. That's when panic starts to set in. When he finally realizes his wrinkles and brown spots were caused by the sun, he may finally change his tune.

It's always easier to avoid getting damage than to have to reverse it, but thankfully it can now be done. Yes, you really can reverse sun damage and you really can get rid of male age spots. So, do not despair. Help is on the way. Here's what you must do:

Get a whitening cream that reduces your melanin output by almost half. A cream that will be full of antioxidants to enable you to fight off the sun's rays when you are outside. Use it daily and watch your skin tone even out. Your male age spots will melt away without applying a single harmful chemical. Not only will your skin become all one color, but its texture will improve due to other youth giving ingredients.

You will no longer have to go to a doctor to get brown spots burned off by a laser or acid. You should breathe a sigh of relief at this bit of news. These procedures can be costly and will cause you discomfort and misery.

Worse yet, those tenacious brown spots will most likely come back once you go in the sun again. Also, you don't have to resort to using bleaching creams that are irritating to your skin. Bleaching creams end up bleaching the entire area surrounding the brown spots, not just the spots themselves.

Remember that a good whitening cream won't allow you to get so dark in the first place. The tan you get from being out in the sun is actually melanin. Your body makes melanin in order to protect you from the sun. But your new whitening cream will cut your melanin production in almost half and yet protect you twice as much.

You see, as you get older the melanin is often uneven anyway, darker in some places than others. This causes brown spots and people associate these brown spots with getting older. When they appear on a man people call them male age spots.

No man wants to hear that he's got anything with the word age in it. So ladies, help your guy stay looking young and feeling sexy. Clue him in about a good whitening cream. He'll thank you for it.

What Causes Dark Circles Under Eyes

When it comes to the stuff that causes dark circle under eyes, there are plenty.
For starters, it could very well be a manifestation of yocaur bad habits such as a poor diet, drinking too much alcohol and smoking. However, these dark circles could be the result of something else entirely.
It could be caused by your genetics.
For example, if your parents have or had these dark circles themselves, then the chances of you being predisposed to inherit the condition is highly likely. Fortunately for people who have dark under eye circles, there are now plenty of creams available for you to use when it comes to reducing them.
However, not all of these eye creams actually work, because most of them only affect the surface and nothing more. Besides, some can even cause allergic reactions to people with sensitive skin. But don’t fret, because you can always to go the natural route when it comes to minimizing your under eye circles.
Where do you begin? Well, it would be best if you can get to the root of the problem. After all, once you figure out what’s giving you these dark circles then you can subsequently find a way to remedy it.
We have already discussed stuff that causes dark circles under eyes; however, there are a few more that you should pay attention to.
For example, if you’re taking medication then this could be giving you the dark circles as well. Any kind of medication that would make your blood vessels dilate will inevitably create dark circles under and around your eye area.
This is because the skin in this area is thin thus the dilated veins easily show, creating the dark area that you see.
Allergies can also give your dark under eye circles. Asthma, Hay fever as well as other allergies that would make your eyes watery and itchy can also produce these dark circles.
This is because most people who have allergies also have a tendency to rub their eyes which damages the blood vessels under it thus creating the dark circles.
Another reason could be hormones. Whenever blood dilation happens, the veins under our eyes would immediately show it and since the skin in that area is very thin, the dark circles become very noticeable.
Now that you know what causes dark circles under eyes, its time to discuss the natural remedies which you can use to help minimize their effects.
One of the most popular natural solutions for dark under eyes would be to use green tea bags.
Green tea is a natural antioxidant and helps clear away the puffiness and reduce the darkness under your eyes.
All you need to do is put 2 cool bags of green tea on top of each eye, leave it on for about 15 minutes and simply wash your face afterwards. The same concept is applied when it comes to using chilled cucumber slices.
So there you have it, just some of the easiest and quickest home remedies which you can do to help reduce your dark under eye circles.
