Clip On Sunglasses Can Give You The Eye Protection That You Need

Clip on Sunglasses, Clip on and Flip Up and Magnetic Snap Ons. These are great options to protect your eyes while wearing your prescription eyeglasses. I see a huge number of people out daily wearing regular eyeglasses with seemingly no protection.  My hope is that their eyeglass lenses have 100 percent UV protection built right in. My understanding, correct me if I am wrong, is these lenses are treated with an invisible dye that blocks ultraviolet (UV) light.  UV-protective treatments for eyeglass lenses block those same rays that damage your skin from damaging your eyes.

Don’t have UV protection lenses? Not sure if you do? Try using Clip on Sunglasses as a way to protect your eyes from the sun without incurring the cost of expensive eyeglass, sun glass lenses. The clip on sunglasses or magnetic sunglasses easily adjust onto your existing prescription lenses so can see clearly with the sun glass lenses blocking out the sun’s harmful rays.

Clip on sunglasses, Clip on and Flip Up and Magnetic Snap Ons can be Polarized. These polarized lenses are designed to reduce glare and help those who are extra sensitive to light. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks intense reflected light, reducing glare.

When purchasing Clip on sunglasses, Clip on and Flip up sunglasses be sure that they fit to your existing prescription eyeglass frame. Your frames may be too thick or to thin. Magnetic Clip On Lenses use hidden magnets to eliminate the worry of them falling off. They allow you to put on and take off the sunglasses with one hand, which is very convenient.

Eyeglasses wearers have plenty of options for clear vision and sun safety. You can get prescription sunglasses purchased through an eye care professional. You can opt for glasses with photochromic lenses that darken in the sun or change your look up with a few Clip on Sunglasses or Magnetic Sunglasses. Through your  eye care professional you can also get designer prescription glasses that come with sun glass clips.

No matter which option you choose, protect your eyes from constant squinting and the sun’s harmful  UV rays.

Skin Cancer Awareness Month is Coming To An End Let’s Not Miss A Mention of Goldfaden MD Sun Visor

Skin Cancer Awareness Month is coming to an end this month of May. Many of us are celebrating Memorial Day activities and festivities in the sun this weekend. Here at It’s a Glam Thing we take as many opportunities as we can to remind our fans of the dangers of the sun.  One of our team members is a  skin cancer survivor . This topic truly hits home for us.

In previous posts this month and prior, we have written informative posts about adult skin cancer and child skin cancer.  This month St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital sent us some really good info regarding children’s skin cancer. Here is one of the prior postings.

Goldfaden MD Sun Visor SPF 30 Mist

Goldfaden MD Sun Visor Ultra Light Oil Free SPF 30 Mist

 

We have suggested several brands of sunblock/sunscreen creams and lotions but not, of recent, an spf mist. There is a spf mist by the  brand Goldfaden MD. This line was developed by South Florida Dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldfaden line.  First off, this product had our attention at Dermatologist developed. Secondly it is the FIRST dermatologist developed NATURAL skincare brand.  The product is Goldfaden MD Sun Visor Ultra Light Oil Free SPF 30 Mist.

You can meet Dr. Goldfaden HERE.

The formula is fragrance free so it does not smell bad.  It does not stain clothing. It does not leave skin  covered in a white cast or looking ashy after using it. It is not oily.

Let me be clear though. Wear sunscreen. Even if the brand you are using does stain or may not smell like you would prefer, maybe it does make your skin ashy or a bit oily. Use Sunscreen! Use sunscreen even if it is not sunny!

Back to Goldfaden MD Sun Visor. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends a water-resistant, broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for any extended outdoor activity. This sunscreen meets that criteria. Regardless of the SPF, though, it’s important to apply frequently for the best protection.

This formula is PABA free and that is very important to your health. The outer box states that it is 100% vegetarian. I would think that it is Vegan also. I can not see that it would contain any animal ingredients or animal by products, honey, beeswax, dairy or eggs. I will do some research to find that out, as that knowledge is very important to several of us here. One of the ingredients is Organic Red Tea Extract. This is a  natural compound that encourages healthy skin.

Now that Goldfaden MD products are on our radar, you will hear more from us about this brand.

You can follow Goldfaden MD on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

The Skin Balancing Mask I see on the home page right now looks like it is worth a try!

Are you suffering from an episode of constipation? These foods will help you fight the problem before it starts.

Among the most uncomfortable sensations and conditions in your existence is constipation. That experience of going to the washroom and struggling for long periods due to poor bowel movements is an experience you want to avoid, and when it happens you want it to end as soon as possible.

Everyone experiences constipation at some point in their lives, and statistics show that about 14% of people experience it occasionally. However, if the problem persists for more than a short time (usually one to two days), then it is more serious than you think and you need some medical help when dealing with it. It can even point to bigger problems with your gut, which require medical attention.

The usual factor that makes constipation so common is the lack of fiber in the diet. That makes it easy to deal with – you need to modify and change your diet to include more fiber sources in order to stem the problem. Other causes can include dehydration, illnesses, certain medication, drug use effects like cocaine withdrawal, mental disorders or diseases that affect the nervous system. However, diet is usually a main factor, so what are the foods we are talking about, and how can they contribute to your well-being?

Apples

You may know the saying, ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’, and it is very factual in this instance. In fact, a medium size apple that has its skin on contains 4.4 grams of fiber – this is actually 17% of the recommended intake on a daily basis.

Out of this, 2.8 grams is insoluble, and 1.2 grams is soluble through the form of pectin. This pectin is useful to your gut bacteria, as it helps them to form short-chain fatty acids that attract water to the colon, softens the stool and reduce the transit period of the gut.

Plumes

 

Also known as dry plums, these are a natural solution for constipation episodes. They come with high fiber amounts, with ranges of 2g of fiber for every three prunes (equivalent to 1oz. serving). In fact, this is a good choice for you as the American Heart’s Association sets it at 8% of the recommended daily fiber intake.

The fiber in the fruit, cellulose, enhances the volume of water in the stool, leading to decrease in constipation because of bulk. The fiber is also soluble and produces short-chain fatty acids when it goes through fermentation in the colon, and this increases the weight of the stool.

Prunes also have sorbitol in their list of components. This is a sugar alcohol that the body tends to absorb very poorly, resulting in more water being drawn towards the stool and having a laxative effect. In addition, prunes have phenolic compounds, which enhance the work of gut bacteria.

Pears

This wonder fruit is very essential if you want to keep the problem at bay. Rich in fiber, it actually contains 5.5 grams within a medium size fruit, one of the highest among all fruits. That amount is also 22% of the recommended daily intake.

In addition, the fruit contains a particularly high amount of sorbitol and fructose, even when compared to other fruits. These sugars both stimulate the attraction of water to the colon, therefore enhancing bowel movements.

Citrus fruit

These are of various kinds, and include grapefruits, oranges, as well as mandarins and lemons. If we put it into perspective, an orange gives you about 3.1g of fiber, 13% of the daily intake. A grapefruit gives 2.6g, which is 10% of the daily intake.

All citrus fruits have high amounts of pectin, particularly in their peelings. They also have a flavanol, naringenin, which increases the retention of fluids in the colon, leading to laxative effects. However, the research on this is not completely clear.

Green leafy veggies

 

Those leafy green vegetables you see – spinach, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts, to name a few – are not only rich in Vitamin C and K, but also in folate and fiber. They help the body to add some bulk to the stool and weight, which enhances the movement within the gut.

Cooked spinach (one cup) for instance, has 4.3g of fiber, which is about 17% of the daily intake. Five Brussels sprouts will provide 10% of the daily intake, so even if you may not like them much, they are good for you. One stalk of broccoli gives 16% of the recommended intake, or 3.6g of fiber.

Artichokes

Artichokes prove to have prebiotic effects (similar to yogurt), according to scientific research – that means they enhance the health of your gut as well as the regularity of bowel movements.

Prebiotics are carbohydrates that happen to be indigestible, though they have the important role of feeding the gut bacteria. This helps them increase their numbers and guard against the spread of harmful bacteria.

Artichokes provide some of the biggest sources. In fact, prebiotics increase the frequency of stool movement, with the additional benefit of assisting people suffering from constipation.

Sweet potatoes

These mainly contain pectin, lignin and cellulose, both helping in absorbing water into the colon. One sweet potato that is medium size has 15%, or 3.8g of the recommended daily consumption of fiber.

Scientific research proves that it also assists patients who are undergoing intensive treatment. One study showed that patients who were going through chemotherapy ate 200g of the potato every day had less signs of constipation, and also had less discomfort and straining from the treatment itself.

Legumes

Legumes that include lentils, peas and beans, have a valuable use in the body other than giving it energy – they are some of the cheapest sources of fiber you can get.

They also contain very high amounts of fiber, even more than most fruits and vegetables. In fact, a cup of navy beans (cooked) has 19g of fiber, or about 80% of the daily intake alone. A cup of cooked lentils gives you 31% of the intake, or 7.8 g.

Final thoughts

Constipation is unfortunately a common problem, but you can prevent it easily by sticking to a diet that incorporates a heavy dose of fiber. After all, these foods mentioned above are not very hard to access, and you can easily get the recommended amounts, helping you stay healthy.

The Perfect Gift For men with Beards

What can you get a guy that has all there is to have? Especially when he has an amazing beard. We will analyze these gift ideas and place them in different categories. Every bearded dude is different, including their need. There are a few things that connect men with beards, always wanting to be unique, the drive for freedom and the fact that they always want to improve themselves.

It’s important to understand that bearded guys are not into accumulating or purchasing several things, you need some inside knowledge in picking out the perfect gift for a beards man.

Gift 1: Consumables

If your man is a beards man, you need to start looking towards beard care products, products that will take care of his beard, clean his beard, style his beard and make it look attractive.

It wouldn’t be a bad idea to get him some mustache wax or a HiLee BioCosmetics beard oil gift set, containing all the essential tools to make a beard look and feel great.

When thinking about gift ideas for men with beards, there’s always an opportunity for you to benefit from it as well. Turn to this article to find out more on beard grooming techniques, so you can have a polished man on your arm.

Gift 2: Upgrades

Irrespective of the beards man in your life, be it your dad, best friend, your boyfriend etc, you need to observe their life and their personal pieces so you can assist them in upgrading it.

For instance, If Casio is their preferred style of watch, you can upgrade it to a more recent version or a different designer like Timex. You can also consider upgrading something they utilize every day, such as socks and underwear. Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that do the trick.

Alternatively you can look at the bigger picture, check out their clothing, you could get them a new jacket or jeans or the latest shoes they’ve had their eye on. Find that one thing they love and get it upgraded. It may be the smallest thing like the leather wristband to their watch – it’s

Turning to observe their interests is highly recommended. For example, if you notice they have an appreciation for liquor you could be creative and check for them some hip flasks for men on Flaskaholic.

Since the person you have in mind is a beards man, he’ll probably appreciate an upgrade of his beard clippers and other grooming tools.

Gift 3: Experiences

If the first and second option doesn’t apply to you, this third option might be the one. This isn’t one of those things that people use every day. They are things that we do occasionally and enjoy, some may not have done it at all. It is called a Sensory Deprivation Tank, it enables you to float in a pool of water, within a dark atmosphere or tank.

It helps you to reset your mind and feel relaxed. A lot of people hallucinate during this process, while some people sleep.

You could also look at pedicure. Most times guys may have bad feet and not have the time to go for a pedicure. However, if you offer it to him as a gift, he would be more inclined to go clean up his feet. The same thing applies to skin care, massages or anything that can reset the mind and body.

Think about these gift ideas whenever you’re next planning to give a gift to your bearded friend, dad, brother, boyfriend or husband.

Memorial Day Weekend, St. Jude Skin Cancer Expert Urges Parents to Take Steps to Protect Children

kids swimming

With the official start of summer this Memorial Day weekend, pediatric skin cancer specialists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital are urging parents to take the necessary steps to protect their children when they are out in the sun this holiday weekend, including poolside or at the beach.“During the Memorial Day weekend, parents should take simple steps to protect their children from extreme sun exposure, including avoiding going out when sun rays are strong and keeping infants out of the sun entirely,” said Alberto Pappo, M.D., director of the Solid Tumor Division at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Don’t assume children cannot get skin cancer because of their age. Unlike other cancers, the conventional melanoma that we see mostly in adolescents behaves the same as it does in adults.”

Research shows that sun damage contributes to melanoma in children and adolescents as well as adults. The research underscores the need for precautionary measures to avoid extreme sun exposure for children, including the implementation of routine prevention measures.

“While rare, melanoma is the most common type of skin cancer in younger patients and affects mostly teenagers. Children are not immune from extreme sun damage and parents should start sun protection early and make it a habit for life,” Pappo said.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a leader in pediatric melanoma research and treatment. St. Jude provides treatment and second opinions for patients with pediatric melanoma around the country and beyond. Each year, the St. Jude Pediatric and Adolescent Melanoma Referral Clinic brings patients and families to St. Jude for two days of expert consultation, as well as medical examinations by leading specialists, educational seminars and an introduction to melanoma-related resources.

Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer because it often spreads to other parts of the body. Melanoma gets its name from melanocytes—skin cells that produce a pigment called melanin, which gives skin its color.

  • About 76,700 new cases of melanoma in children and adults are diagnosed in the United States each year.
  • About 7 percent of cancers in children 15 to 19 years of age are melanomas. Melanoma is most common in people of Caucasian descent, occurring five times more often than in Hispanics and 20 times more often than in African Americans.
  • Childhood melanoma may not fit into the same routine diagnosis symptoms as adults. Instead, parents should look for the following:
    • A mole that changes, grows or doesn’t go away
    • An odd-shaped or large mole
    • A pale-colored or red bump
    • A mole or bump that itches or bleed
  • Learn more HERE

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and cures childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. St. Jude is ranked the No. 1 pediatric cancer hospital by U.S. News & World Report. Treatments developed at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
