VOL. 25, FEB 2005 : Red Wine and Chocolate as Anti-Aging Tools

Anti-Aging with Chocolate & Red Wine!?

Eat chocolate and live longer?

Using a test developed by Tufts University’s USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging,

Researchers at Penn State University found that with chocolate-the darker the better,

because cocoa beans, the main ingredients of the chocolate,

and the core of the bitterness-contains anti-aging antioxidants.

The substances — called polyphenols — can prolong the life of yeast cells significantly

and they seem to work inside human cells too.

Polyphenols are produced by many plants — perhaps the best known is resveratrol,

found in red wine as well.

The oldest known person, Jeanne Calment, who lived to be 122 years old

and consumed two pounds of dark chocolate every week!

Enough reason to try a dark chocolate and red wine combination for Valentine’s Day!


How to Cope with Dry Skin.

The air in New York becomes very dry this time of year,

so it is important to protect your skin from the elements.

Let’s review some guidelines on taking care of your skin:

How can you tell if your skin is dehydrated? Moisture plays a vital role in the skin,

helping to maintain its protective barrier and keeping it looking firm.

To see if your skin is dehydrated, simply “pinch” a portion of the skin on your face.

As you gently squeeze it, see if you detect fine lines.

If you do, open a bottle of water and start drinking!


Extra tips for dry skin

1. Apply hydrating masks once or twice a week.

2. Change your basic skin care products from summer to winter.

3. Try an oil mask in addition to bath oil when bathing to heal dry skin

or just for relaxation. Do not apply the mask on oily or acne prone skin.

4. Apply eye cream or gel morning and night.

5. Too much scrubbing can make your skin sensitive,

especially if it had been treated with chemical or laser peels.

6. Do not use harsh soap when you take a shower or bath.

Antibacterial soap is generally not necessary unless one has body odor.

7. A hot shower or bath can feel great, but it also can remove natural body oils.

Adding bath oil to the water will help keep your skin well hydrated.

8. It is best to apply moisturizers to damped skin. After a shower or bath,

lightly towel dry and immediately apply your skin care products.
