Bare Skin Care - Six Ways To Prevent Bladder Infections

by Charles Bollmann May 13, 2013

Bladder infection (cystitis) is a common and annoying problem, especially among women, whose urinary anatomy makes them more vulnerable than men. Frequent contributors or aggravators of cystitis include coffee and other forms of caffeine, cigarette and alcohol use, dehydration, excessively frequent or traumatic sex, stress, and poor hygiene (such as wiping from back to front instead of front to back). To end recurrent cystitis, try the following:

  1. Eliminate bladder irritants, like the ones mentioned above, from your diet.
  2. Increase your intake of water so that you urinate more frequently, allowing less time for any irritants to contact the bladder wall.
  3. Eat or drink more cranberries. Cranberries contain a substance that makes it difficult for bacteria to adhere to the wall of the bladder. Drink eight to 16 ounces of unsweetened cranberry juice a day, or try 500 mg daily of cranberry extract.
  4. Don't hold on to urine when you feel the urge to urinate.
  5. Consume probiotic foods, such as plain yogurt or kefir.
  6. Avoid wearing tight-fitting pants. Also, wear cotton-crotch underwear and pantyhose, and use mild detergents when washing underwear.

Bare Skin Care - Is it possible for a retinol eye cream to make my under-eye wrinkles worse?

by Charles Bollmann May 28, 2019

First, the answer is yes, retinol can make wrinkles worse, especially when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, and one can get epidermal sliding from separation from the dermis. But this is temporary, and will eventually end up tightening the skin around the eyelids, provided you are using a potent retinol preparation.
