Alopecia: What it is and Ways to Deal with it

It can be difficult to cope with alopecia when you are first diagnosed, especially because it can make drastic changes to your overall appearance. Despite millions of people suffering from the condition, it is still relatively unknown in terms of research and support. It can leave you feeling alone, but you aren’t, and we have a little bit of advice on how to deal with it – as well as further explanation as to what alopecia is and the way it can affect those who have it.

What is Alopecia?

Technically, it is classed as an autoimmune condition, and is also known as a chronic inflammatory disease. What this means is that your immune system is tricked into thinking that your hair follicles are actually a foreign body and so it attacks them – causing your hair to fall out. Additionally, it can impact men and women alike, as well as all age ranges.

There are three main forms of alopecia, each of which varies in terms of severity. Below, you will find each of them listed from least severe to most:

  • Alopecia Areata. Partial hair loss and general patchiness on the head.
  • Alopecia Totalis. Total hair loss on the head.
  • Alopecia Universalis. Total hair loss across the entire body (including lashes and brows).

It is a painless condition, but there are some sufferers who have experienced skin irritation and soreness as a result of the balding areas. It tends to be caused by a combination of genetics and the environment, with conditions like depression or severe stress often acting as the trigger for the condition.

Alopecia and Mental Health

It is possible for alopecia to cause mental health issues as well as be triggered by it. Depression is the most common occurrence for those who suffer from the condition, and it can become quite serious if left untreated. Here are some of the symptoms to look out for if you think that your or a loved one is depressed:

  • Feeling down, upset, or tearful
  • Feeling restless, agitated, or irritable
  • Feeling guilty and worthless
  • Feeling empty and numb
  • Feeling isolated and unable to relate to other people
  • No longer finding pleasure in life or things you usually enjoy
  • Gaining a sense of unreality
  • Losing self-confidence or self-esteem
  • Feeling hopeless and full of despair
  • Feeling suicidal
  • Avoiding social events and activities you usually enjoy
  • Self-harming or suicidal behaviour
  • Finding it difficult to speak or think clearly
  • Losing interest in sex and general intimacy
  • Difficulty in remembering or an inability to concentrate on things
  • Using more tobacco, alcohol, or other drugs than usual
  • Difficulty sleeping, or sleeping too much
  • Feeling tired and drained (emotionally and physically) all the time
  • No appetite and losing weight, or eating too much and gaining weight
  • Physical aches and pains with no obvious cause
  • Moving very slowly, or being restless and agitated

Coping with the Reactions of Others

Other people are not always going to react kindly, and you may find that there are quite a few who are joking with you in a way that leaves your feelings and confidence shattered. A lot of the time it is because people don’t know how to react to conditions they do not understand, or they don’t want you to think that they pity you. Regardless, it is not something you should have to tolerate.

The best way to deal with the reactions of others is to embrace yourself and brush it off, but this is a lot easier said than done. It can be really hard to deal with the stares and comments, but over time many with alopecia state that it does get better. Therapy can be a massive help, especially as it gives you a chance to pour out your emotions and learn healthier coping mechanisms.

Sometimes, those with alopecia have found that running fundraisers and educational events have really helped with reactions because it ensures people understand the condition, that it’s not cancer, and it also isn’t contagious (something many fear with an illness they don’t understand). It’s up to you, but we are sure you will find the perfect way for coping.

To Conclude

Whether you are suffering, or someone you know has been recently diagnosed, we hope that this guide has been able to answer some of the questions you have been asking. If you want to learn more about alopecia and the ways in which you can try to overcome the emotional pain that often comes with it, we have a detailed guide on the topic that we know will be able to ease some of your distress.

Luxury on Lovers Owner Lisa Cobb Shares Best Treatments for Holiday Beauty and Winter Skin Care

Luxury on Lovers Owner Lisa Cobb Shares Best Treatments for Holiday Beauty and Winter Skin Care

 

Every gal and guy wants to look their best at holiday parties.  Lisa Cobb, former model, esthetic expert and founder of Luxury on Lovers, Dallas’ premier med-spa specializing in medical grade aesthetic services, has put together a Six Sexy and Essential Beauty Tips for Looking Your Best at Holiday Parties med spa treatments which will ensure you look and feel your best – and beat the challenges of the winter temperatures.

“Holiday parties are a time for you to look beautiful.  I’ve selected five med spa treatments which will make you glow inside and out. The holidays are during a challenging skin season due to the temperatures so it is important to nourish your skin and body as well as make sure you look your best,” said Lisa Cobb, owner, Luxury on Lovers.

Holiday Treatments to Look Your Best

 Get baby smooth skin and have your makeup go on like silk with dermaplaning. Dermaplaning not only provides great exfoliation, but it also gets rid of peach fuzz. Skin with be satiny smooth and baby soft.

Our signature Double Glow Facial, (which is on special this month) combines the ultimate in exfoliation deep pore cleansing, and an infusion of nutrients and low molecular hyaluronic acid to nourish and hydrate the skin. The ultimate red-carpet treatment. Turn back the years over lunchtime with a threadlift. This non-invasive, lunch hour treatment gives immediate results and restores definition to jawline, lift cheeks, and sagging skin on the neck and jowls.

Get rid of those dark circles under your eyes and look refreshed and vibrant for the holidays. Dark circles are usually an indication of volume loss. Get an instant fix with a little filler (like Restylane or Vollure) in the tear through area.

Vamp it up with little downtime with our Vampire Facial. Helps stimulate collagen, tighten pores, smooth skin texture, reduce fine lines, and brighten overall skin tone.

Get brows that wow! Want perfect brows year-round without the fuss of pencils and stencils? Nothing frames the face and accentuates the eyes like beautiful brows. Get the perfect brow with microblading, a semi-permanent way to make your brows pop and look fabulous 24/7.

Skin Savers for Winter Skin

Moisturizers

Skin tends to need more hydration in the winter months. The air is cooler and dryer, additionally indoor heating is extremely drying to the skin. In the summer months, the air is more humid, and people tend to sweat more, so thicker moisturizers can feel much heavier on the skin, not to mention being sweated off. It’s a good idea to keep a humidifier going in the bedroom at night to keep skin hydrated. It is also good for sinuses to keep them clear.

Different skin types will need different kinds of moisturizers. Younger skin tends to be oiler, as well as ethnic skin types. More mature skin tends to be dryer and thinner, requiring a heavier moisturizer to hydrate and protect the dermal barrier. Men tend to prefer moisturizers that aren’t heavy, and that absorbs quickly into the skin. The same goes for teens. In such instances, they may prefer an oil-free moisturizer or a much lighter serum-based moisturizer. More mature and dryer skin types will usually prefer a cream.

The new buzz ingredient in moisturizers is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body. It attracts water molecules and thus helps keep skin hydrated. It is oil-free and is used in both oil-free and cream-based moisturizers. Many moisturizers also include vitamins C and E, which are natural antioxidants and help protect the skin. Many cream-based moisturizers contain ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, and other natural plant oils. In all instances, one needs to be cognizant of fragrance in skincare products. Even natural ones, such as essential oils, can be irritating to the skin. If one is having a reaction to a product, that is the first thing to look for as fragrance is the number one irritant to the skin.

Daily Routine Year-Round

  • The ground rule of basic skin care is to exfoliate your skin. Your body sheds skin cells at an amazing rate every minute of every day. If you don’t get rid of the dead skin cells, they’ll just set in on your skin making your skin look dull and dry. No matter how much lotion you use, you’re never going to have glowing skin if you don’t exfoliate. Grab a body scrub and hit the shower. You can make a great one with the ingredients in your kitchen sink. Use 1-part organic coconut oil to 1-part turbinado sugar or Himalayan salt. Gently rub your exfoliator in circular movements on your entire body from the shoulders down and rinse clean. Continue to do this 2-3 times a week for year-round beautiful skin. You’ll want a gentler facial exfoliator for your face and neck and 1-2 times per week is sufficient. Many cleansers already have exfoliating ingredients such as glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acid. It’s important not to exfoliate too much. You don’t want to strip your skin of its natural oils and protective barrier.

 

  • To avoid wrinkles, use a light eye cream in the morning and a rich cream at night; tap the eye area lightly with your finger until the product is absorbed to stimulate circulation. Use a gentle, hydrating makeup remover or cleanser. Don’t scrub harder to remove stubborn makeup; instead, gently wash the area again. Eliminate talc-based eye shadows, which sap moisture.

 

  • Proper vitamin intake is essential (see more insight in the link below)

 

  • Find a lotion that you won’t forget to put on. You don’t have time to wait for your lotion to sink in, so look for something light fast absorbing. Gels and purees are perfect fast absorbers.  Make sure you apply right after you dry off from your shower. You need to seal in the moisture your body just soaked in.

 

  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. If possible, carry a water bottle with you and remember to drink at least once every 30 minutes. Water not only helps you feel fresh, but it also prevents dehydration and will help wash out a lot of toxins.

Global Gifting This Holiday Season With Marketplace Africa

GLOBAL GIFTING THAT GIVES BACK – EMPOWERING AFRICA’S FEMALE ARTISANS

 

Mall of Africa

 

Did you know the artisan sector is the second largest employer in the developing world?  It’s true, and the majority of artisans are women who create handcrafted goods using traditional techniques passed down through generations.

Marketplace Africa, the ecommerce site created by Mall for Africa and powered by DHL, aims to put a global spotlight on these unique African-made products and their creators.  85% of the site’s goods are crafted by underrepresented female artisans from Nigeria, and soon Kenya and Rwanda, who can sell their handmade fashion, jewelry, home goods, and beauty products directly to the U.S. and consumers worldwide.

With Nigeria’s unemployment rate hovering at 14.2% and a staggering 89.5% of the country living in extreme poverty, it’s the female artisans who are making a positive impact on their country’s economy and future.

So this holiday season, why not gift different and buy global?  Choose a Blingshiki, a modern twist on the classic Dashiki, adorned with sparkling embellishments, or grab a pair of colorful Zig sandals.

When you purchase authentic African clothing and handicrafts directly from Marketplace Africa, you’re not just buying something beautiful, you’re investing in artisans who weave their rich cultural traditions into soulful creations. Empowering female artisans and boosting their communities is the real beauty of shopping at Marketplace Africa. And that’s a holiday gift that’s priceless.
