Another way to make your home a more wellness-centered space is by eliminating sources of blue light during the evening hours. According to Ben Spielberg, who is a neuroscientist and CEO of TMS & Brain Health, this is because it inhibits the production of melatonin. “Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland, and is responsible for telling the body when to go to sleep”, he says. “Blue light can mimic the wavelengths of natural light, which interferes with the body’s melatonin release and ultimately can lead to insomnia and irregular sleep patterns. By avoiding and/or suppressing blue light, the pineal gland is able to secrete healthy amounts of melatonin undeterred, leading to a healthy full night’s rest.”

There are countless sources of blue light we all have in our homes including screens, light bulbs, and small appliances. While you can’t eliminate all exposure, there are ways to reduce it. Get rid of LED and florescent bulbs and swap them out for red bulbs. If red bulbs aren’t aesthetically appealing, an amber light such as the Hoogalite Bulb is a better option.

a close up of a man: Situational cleansing can be beneficial

Cleansing, without a doubt, is an integral part of maintaining good hygiene. A 2011 study published in the Indian Journal Of Dermatology suggests that cleansing products have been used for centuries to treat a variety of dermatological disorders, such as acne, rosacea and atopic dermatitis.

And since there are many factors that can influence your skin health (including stress, weather and hormones), board-certified dermatologist Peterson Pierre does see some positives associated with the situational cleansing method, especially since it can help address skin concerns at a particular time.

“Situational cleansing refers to switching cleansers based on different life circumstances,” Pierre told HuffPost. “This can be very beneficial because there are times when your skin will be dry (or oily, red and irritated), so this gives you the flexibility to properly address your skin’s needs at the appropriate time.”

How Stuff Works / Dr. Peterson Pierre Should You Pop Your Blisters? February 11, 2020

blister on foot

So how do you do it? Follow these simple steps provided by Dr. Peterson Pierre of the Pierre Skin Care Institute in Thousand Oaks, California, to achieve the safest outcome possible:

  • Wash the affected area with soap and water.
  • Using a sterile needle, safety pin or pair of medical scissors, gently poke the blister. Most of the fluid should leak out easily. If it doesn’t, it’s not ready to be popped.
  • Apply soft pressure to ensure that all of the serum is released.
  • Dress the area with a pressure bandage to prevent fluid from reaccumulating in the blister. This also protects the skin and helps the area heal.
  • Although some doctors recommend applying antibiotic cream, Pierre says to steer clear. “In fact, products like Neosporin can irritate the area, he says via email. “Vaseline or Aquaphor with the bandage is sufficient to provide an environment conducive to rapid healing.”

Dr. Rady Rahban, a Beverly Hills Board Certified Plastic Surgeon tells HL, “There is a three prong approaches to noninvasive procedures that enhance one’s red carpet appearance whether for celebrities or civilians.

“First Neuro Toxins (Botox and Dysport) that modulate wrinkles by relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. The best results are seen when a patient receives Botox every 4-6 months. Most popular areas to treat are the forehead, in between the brows, and the crow’s feet (around the eyes).

“Second, Hyaluronic Acid fillers for volume replacement (Restylane, Juvederm).  Most common areas treated are the under eyes, lips, and cheeks.  As we age, we lose fat in our face which has previously kept us “youthful” looking.  Procedure should be done at least 2 weeks prior to an event just in case of any swelling or bruising.
