  • Is Cleansing Cream Right for Me?

    Dear Michele,

    My mother uses a cleansing cream to cleanse her face at night, and she says it leaves her skin clean and refreshed. I, on the other hand, can’t imagine putting that thick cream on my face. What skin would a cleansing cream be best for?

  • Linoleic Acid in Skincare

    Background

    Linoleic is an essential fatty acid (EFA) needed for proper health. EFAs are not synthesized by the body but are necessary for optimal health and function, so they must be acquired from other sources. Without linoleic acid (a component of vitamin F), skin would be dry and scaly, and hair loss would occur. It also is integral to metabolic and brain functions and bone health.

    Oils--including safflower, grapeseed, and hemp--as well as sunflower and nuts (particularly peanuts and Brazil nuts) are common food sources of linoleic acid.

  • Resveratrol Skin Benefits

    Background

    Resveratrol may be responsible for the “French Paradox,” the concept that French people have a low incidence of heart problems and cancer despite greater consumption of saturated fats and a higher incidence of smoking. In the 1990s, this scientific supposition resulted in a dramatic increase in American sales of red wine (a good source of resveratrol), which continues to be generally regarded as a beneficial part of a healthy diet.
