While this first tip is not quite a health benefit, it sure makes using the aloe vera gel easier. Aloe vera gel comes in bottles and in capsules. So if you need it for your skin, you can use the gel; if you need it for something else on the inside, you can take a capsule.
Stretch marks develop when your skin rapidly changes shape through growth, weight gain, or weight loss. Having stretch marks doesn’t necessarily mean there’s anything wrong with your health so it’s important to remember that. What it might mean is that you need to monitor your weight (if you’ve finished growing).
Shingles is a virus that is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus. Shingles are found in most people who had chickenpox because the varicella-zoster virus is dormant in the nerve tissue by your spinal cord and brain. The virus can become active again years after you suffered from chickenpox.
Tonsil stones are little lumps that are calcified material that forms from debris in your mouth from your daily activities. They appear on the fleshy part of your tonsil and mouth. Those who have tonsil stones suffer from bad breath and severe pain while swallowing food and drink. They often have a sore throat often as well.
At some point in your life you may develop hemorrhoids. The first time it happens it may be indicated by a simple blood smear on your toilet paper, (it may be harder for women to detect and they might think their period is out of cycle), to a full toilet bowl of bright red blood. Both can be a cause for alarm if you’re young and don’t have a history of hemorrhoids.
There are many reasons responsible for dry skin that can be identified and remedied. When your skin is dry, there is a tendency for it to become flaky after a while if steps are not taken to have it moisturized. Apart from the obvious exposure to environmental conditions that prove harmful, poor health, inadequate nutrient intake, and bad habits can cause skin dryness.
Menopause is when a woman between her 40’s and 50’s stops having menstrual cycles, though it’s not fully diagnosed until the woman’s gone a full year without having a menstrual cycle. While this process is completely natural and happens to every woman, that does not make it any less annoying.
Atopic dermatitis is a skin disease that causes chronic inflammation with complex etiology. The name is said to originate from “atopy,” a hereditary condition that predisposes a person to multiple allergic disorders, including asthma, food allergies, and hay fever. If you or any member of your family has an allergy, you may be at increased risk of developing atopic dermatitis.
