Are you one of the many men  or woman having trouble sleeping at least eight uninterrupted hours at night?

If you are you are… your lack of sleep is preventing your body from making the essential “T” hormones.

Why are “T” hormones so important?

“T” or Thyroid hormones are necessary to:

- Control the rate at which your body burns calories (your metabolism).

-  Increase muscle strength.

-  Control how quickly your body replaces dying cells.

-  Achieve weight loss.

-  Control hair loss.

Chemicals in skin & hair products afect your thyroid

 Dr. Suman Khulbe practitioner certified by the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine Board suggests:

- Adding vitamin D and zinc to your daily routine,

- Eliminating “junk food” from your diet,

- Increasing the quantity of good fats (like coconut oil, Omegas 3 and 7) in your regime.

By changing our habits and introducing the above components to our nutrition, Dr Khulbe predicts we could help stop hair loss, lose some weight and sleep better.

Beyond Nutritional Adjustments

Dermatologist Dr. Chiranjiv Chabbra, however, differ.

According to Dr Chabbra, Dr Khulbe’s suggestions are simply not enough. What we need to prevent or reverse baldness and achieve healthy hair growth is to consume the following essential minerals and vitamins:

Silica:  Surprisingly, our hair needs 90 micrograms, almost as much as the 100 micrograms per gram of silica required by our bones. Silica stimulates healthier hair growth but above all guarantees strong, shiny and lustrous hair.

Copper:  Lack of copper will lead to hair breakage and pigmentation loss or premature greying.

Zinc: Found in nuts, bananas and animal protein, zinc is essential in hair formation and strengthening of hair follicles.

Selenium: This element helps prevent split ends, hair breakage, fight dandruff and several other scalp problems. Selenium is found in fish, cottage cheese, oats and garlic.

Biotin: An extremely important vitamin found in berries, milk, and nuts. A Biotin deficiency results in brittle, rough, thin hair and broken nails.

Iron: Abundant in spinach, an iron deficiency can suggest anemia and alopecia (the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows).

Vitamin D3: Salmon is a fantastic source of Vitamin D3 and something you should start eating as soon as you begin noticing patches on your scalp. Talk to your doctor as well to start supplementing.

Vitamin E:  Found in all leafy greens, Vitamin E is often recommended to people suffering from hair issues to help them maintain a healthy, shiny hair.

So whether you prefer to start with baby steps and follow Dr Khulbe’s advice or whether you feel it’s time to go beyond the usual nutritional adjustments often suggested by most hair specialists, there is no doubt that your overall health and well being will benefit from eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins.

So, every time you put something in your mouth, think whether it will speed up hair loss.

If you are already seeing signs of thinning on the top of the scalp, you can begin counteracting or at least slowing down the process, by:

a)      changing your hair products and

b)      by eating a healthy diet rich in the minerals mentioned above.

Please leave a comment, I hope this articles help you on your way to recover your healthy mane.

To your health,

...Organic Sunless Tanner

 

Stopping here first was a good call.

We used to enclose a printed version of this booklet with our tanner but we continually get suggestions and recommendations from the hundreds of customers who love this tanner so we decided to convert it to a more dynamic forum so you always have the latest information for getting the perfect tan.

One you learn these simple secrets, you can keep that sexy, natural looking tan all year long while you're also pampering your skin.

You'll get more than just a tan.

My Skin's Friend Sunless Tanner is on of the very few liposomal tanners on the market. It actually helps moisturize your skin as well as tanning it so it's like getting two products for the price of one.

These simple secrets will guarantee an even, natural looking tan
Getting an even, natural looking tan shouldn't be difficult yet we hear from customers who have tried so many sunless tanners on the market only to be disappointed in the look of their tan. 
We set out to make the best organic tanner on the market and from the emails and customer reviews we get, looks like we've accomplished it.
If you don't get the perfect tan, let us help
Sure, we occasionally get a customer feedback that says they got streaks or some uneven spots but even then, we work with them to help correct those issues and start over. Without exception, the outcome is positive so I urge you to write to us if you experience anything but a perfect tan and let us help.
Getting an even, natural looking tan is definitely possible without covering your body with chemicals, baking in a tanning bed or enduring the funky smell most tanners leave you with.
If you follow these simple steps, you too will be sporting a tan so natural looking that your friends will ask you where you just vacationed!
First things first.

Don't rush the process o.k.?

You want a natural looking tan, not a cheap paint job right? Just like getting a real sun tan, it takes a little time and patience but the outcome will be well worth it.
My Skin's Friend doesn't tan you, it causes your body to tan itself. In fact, when you spray it on, you won't see any color because there isn't any in it. That's why it doesn't look fake like a lot of others but there are "secrets" to getting the best, most natural looking tan with it.

Before you spray, make sure your skin is clean and exfoliated.

Use a regular wash cloth, loofah or anything else you might already like to exfoliate with. I discovered this helps speed up the process because it starts with new, fresh skin cells, not the old dead ones. Don't scrub so hard that you cause an abrasion. Just a nice firm scrub.

Exfoliate before using My Skin's Friend sunless tanner
There are two reasons for this.
  1. One, the organic tanner interacts with your skin to create the tanning process so the more fresh, clean skin it can contact (without oils or creams between) the faster, deeper and more even your tan will be.
  2. Secondly, dead skin cells tend to get darker than fresh cells and may cause some spotting so your outcome will be much more even once you properly clean and exfoliate your skin.

When your done, dry off and go to the next step.

I put plastic grocery store bags on my feet from the ankle down to keep the tops of my feet from getting tan from the falling mist.
    Some customers have told me that they apply a thin layer of cocoa butter or other natural lotion like MSF Sweet Potato, Melon Fresh or Honey & Aloe to theirs.

    They also apply to elbows and knees because those areas tend to get darker faster and the lotion acts to help avoid that.


      O.k. with those bases covered, it's time to apply the spray.

      It is much easier if you have a friend who can spray you but almost all of our customers report they spray it on themselves with little problem. It might take a little practice to perfect it but it's done every day.

      I apply it to myself most of the time but when I can get my husband to do it, it is easier to maintain a more even coverage.

      VERY IMPORTANT. The main cause of streaks or runs is OVER SPRAYING.

      Because My Skin's Friend sunless tanner is clear (no colorants or staining chemicals), it is hard to tell where you've sprayed.

      For this reason, it is important to plan to cover in a methodical way to make sure you don't over spray and get runs or streaks.

       

       

      1. Do right leg, left leg to thigh front.
      2. Right arm, left arm front and sides.
      3. Abdomen front (pubic bone to under neck unless you want au natural all over tan).
      4. Then back from hairline to butt. Then back of left leg, back of right leg.  

      If you have someone applying the spray to you, have them hold the bottle about a foot from your body and spray evenly from side to side, making sure to get an even coat. Applying too much each time will cause runs and you don't want that or you'll have streaks. Just a very light coat works like magic.

      RUN REPAIR TIP!

      If you see a run or large droplets during or after spraying, don't panic. It can be fixed before the streak shows up.

      Once you've finished your third and final application for that day, simply let the last coat dry a few minutes and then apply an organic lotion to the entire area to blend the overspray into the rest of the area. In almost all cases, this will completely eliminate any spots or streaks and you'll wake up with a very nice, even, natural looking tan.

      Over spray also happens because you will swear you're not getting enough on you but I assure you that you are. We chose the very fine mister pump to make sure you get a very light application each time to prevent runs or streaks.

      When one coat dries (which is very quick and can be accelerated with a blow dryer set to cool), apply the next one until you've sprayed three consecutive coats in one treatment.  I know you won't feel like anything is happening but trust me, it is.

      Once the third coat is dry, you're ready to get dressed. My Skin's Friend tanner won't color hair or clothes so don't worry about having to cover your hair or having it rub off on your clothes or bed linens.

      Cover your whole body or the areas you want tan with that first coat and wait 3 minutes or so for it to dry. One of the things people love about it is that it dries very fast.

      Repeat this process no more than three days straight.

      Once you've done if for three days, STOP and wait for 48 hours for your tan to “mature” and show you the final shade. If you want to be darker, simply continue to apply it as above until you reach your ideal shade. Once that happens, you can usually maintain your tan with a once or twice a week application. Remember, you won't see the final results for 48 hours
      after the final coat.

      That's it! That's all you need to have a cool looking tan. And when people ask where you got your beautiful tan, tell 'em Tahiti!
