How to Manage Dry Skin - September 2019

By OK In Health's Articles

Did you know that the most common cause of itching is dry skin?
Here are some ways to deal with this condition:
  • Minimize hot showers and baths - hot water depletes natural oils in your skin so opt for warm water and spend no longer than 10 minutes bathing.
  • Wash gently - avoid aggressive scrubbing of the skin,  and do not use antibacterial, perfumed or deodorant soaps.
  • Pat skin dry - leave your skin moist by patting or blotting it with a towel, as opposed to rubbing your skin dry.
  • Moisturize after bathing - look for products containing natural ingredients with petrolatum but products such as shea butter.
  • Use a humidifier - if the air is dry, such as wintertime in cold climates, consider the use of a humidifier or buy a spray bottle and mist the air.
  • Protect yourself from the elements - cover exposed skin in winter and minimize sun exposure.

Wellness Tip
Cranberry Juice
Compounds in cranberry juice are said to help prevent and relieve attacks of cystitis (bladder infections) by preventing bacteria attaching to cell in bladder walls and in the urinary tract. Look out for cranberry juice that has no added sugar and avoid the cranberry juice drinks, which are sweetened with sugar. A small glass of cranberry juice counts as one portion of the recommended 5 a day.

Recipe
Summer Corn and White Bean Soup
Category: Soup
Description: This quick, fiber-packed soup is a terrific way to use fresh corn. Add a slight kick with a sprinkle of Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers just before serving. When possible try to find non-GMO corn. With over 80% of the corn grown in the north America is genetically modified, and biotechnology companies phasing out non-GMO corn seed varieties, American farmers have fewer choices for finding non-GMO seeds to grow. GMO means genetically modified organism, which is a novel organism created by scientists when they genetically modify or engineer food plants. Scientists have cited many health and environmental risks with genetically modified (GM) foods. As a result of these risks, many people in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, and other nations are demanding non-genetically modified (non-GMO) foods. Visit your local farmers markets or health store and look for non-GMo corn.
Corn and beans are high in fiber. Dietary fibers are found naturally in the plants that we eat. They are parts of plant that do not break down in our stomachs, and instead pass through our system undigested. All dietary fibers are either soluble or insoluble. Both types of fiber are equally important for health, digestion, and preventing conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, diverticulitis, and constipation.
