Bare Skin Care - Does It Matter What I Eat?

 I recently spoke with a colleague of mine, who is an invasive cardiologist, boarded in 4 medical specialties. (I don't know any other doctors with 4 medical boards). Needless to say, I respect his opinion.

He said that he tended to go by the scientific data (surprisingly not by the internet), which says as far as heart disease, it does not matter what you eat - it is mostly genetics. One exception - smoking.

This goes along with findings of centagenarians (100 yrs old), where they eat anything they want.

If you look at kids, you can feed them candy as much as they want, then they will ask for good food.

If you want a book on eating, Michael Pollan's "In Defense Of Food" is my favorite. There are 3000 books on dieting, because dieting does not work.

My advice on eating: listen to your body. It will tell you what it needs. Eat 3 meals a day (what a new concept!!!). Do not eat between meals. Do not snack. Eat mostly fruits and vegetables. If you want desert, eat after you have eaten a meal. And eat what you feel like, within reason. And when your body tells you to stop eating - listen. And remember, alcohol is empty calories.

For all those who feel you need to eat 6-8 times a day, there are studies showing the stomach actually works better when you eat a meal and then wait at least 4 hours after eating. This is the time when it digests food properly.

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.
