A team of researchers at the Skin Diseases and Leishmaniasis Research Center at Iran’s Isfahan University of Medical Sciences in Isfahan concluded that #teatreeoil was effective in treating mild to moderate #acne.

They divided the participants into two groups, one of which was treated with tea tree oil and the other with placebo. It was concluded that the oil was 5.8 times more effective compared to placebo.

The antiseptic and antiviral properties of tea tree oil combat virus that cause warts. As reported by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 20 million Americans carry some kind of human papilloma virus, which eventually leads to the formation of warts.

Mix tea tree oil with #lavenderoil to make your own super-potent ointment for cuts and infections.
#Eczema is a skin condition manifested by itchiness, dryness, rash, and blistering. Tea tree oil has strong antibacterial properties which get to the root of the problem by fighting off the infection.

Mix 20 drops of tea tree oil, add ¼ cup of arrowroot powder, and a ¼ cup of baking soda. Tea tree oil will destroy the fungus responsible for athletes foot.

The potent anti-inflammatory properties of tea tree oil is very beneficial for psoriasis as it both alleviate the symptoms and prevents its spreading.
Chicken pox causes severe itching, which eventually leaves scars. To relieve this intense itchiness, soak in a warm bath enriched with tea tree oil.
To get rid of irritation caused by shaving, apply a small amount of tea tree oil on the affected area using a cotton ball.

Tea tree oil works against boils as it destroys staph infections, especially those resistant to antibiotics.
Many makeup removers contain #teatreeoil, but it is recommended to make your own remover instead. Mix a quarter cup of extra-virgin olive oil with 10 drops tea tree oil and store the solution in a dark place. Dip a cotton ball and sweep it over the face.

Many of the world's centenarians share one common hobby: gardening. Could you extend your life and drop your stress by taking up the pursuit, too?

Dan Buettner has studied five places around the world where residents are famed for their longevity: Okinawa in Japan, Nicoya in Costa Rica, Icaria in Greece, and Loma Linda in California and Sardinia in Italy.

People living in these so-called “blue zones” have certain factors in common – social support networks, daily exercise habits and a #plantbased diet, for starters. But they share another unexpected commonality. In each community, people are #gardening well into old age – their 80s, 90s and beyond.

He says there is evidence that gardeners live longer and are less stressed. A variety of studies confirm this, pointing to both the physical and mental health benefits of gardening.

In recent Dutch study, researchers asked participants to complete a stressful task, then split them into two groups. One group read indoors and the other gardened outdoors for 30 minutes. The group that read reported that their mood “further deteriorated”, while the gardeners not only had lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol afterwards, they also felt “fully restored” to a good mood.

Australian researchers following men and women in their 60s found that those who regularly gardened had a 36% lower risk of dementia than their non-gardening counterparts.

And preliminary studies among elderly people suffering from cognitive issues (such as dementia and Alzheimer’s) report benefits from #garden settings and horticulture therapy. Sunlight and fresh air, for example, help agitated elders feel calmer, while the colours and textures of various plants and vegetables can improve visual and tactile ability.

#Avocado oil can penetrate into the second layer of the skin (dermis) and provide deep moisturizing with its oleic acid and phytosterols. People who have a dry and sensitive skin type are usually advised to use oils rich in oleic acid. The lecithin in avocado oil helps boost #collagen, and the pro-vitamin A carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin enhance the skin’s natural antioxidant store.

Studies have found that #avocados, and by extension avocado oil, can both prevent and treat skin damage, thanks to their PFA. In a study, when PFA was injected into skin cells before they were exposed to UVB rays:
The skin cells showed increased ability to recover.
The secretion of inflammation-inducing chemicals was decreased.
DNA repair was enhanced.

#Avocadooil has benefits not just for a sun-damaged skin but any skin that shows the signs of natural aging like wrinkles, dryness, and flaccidity.
Vitamin E and lecithin in avocado help boost the collagen in the skin, giving it firmness.
Vitamin E and carotenoids also prevent inflammation and keep wrinkles from showing on the skin.
The fatty acids in avocado oil penetrate into the second layer of the skin, moisturizing it well and preventing aging-related dryness and wrinkles.

You can prevent and cure acne by using avocado oil. This oil keeps the skin hydrated without leaving it too oily, which reduces the risk of acne. It can also help with its linoleic acid content since the lack of linoleate in the sebum-producing skin cells is linked to #acne.

Avocado oil mixed with vitamin B12 has been found to relieve the symptoms of psoriasis, a condition where skin cells build up to form dry, scaly, and itchy patches on the skin.

Research published in the journal BMC Cell Biology shows that old human cells can be rejuvenated using chemicals similar to resveratrol, which is a substance found in #redwine and #darkchocolate.

The study was carried out by researchers at the Universities of Exeter and Brighton, both of which are located in the United Kingdom.

Lorna Harries, a professor of molecular genetics at the University of Exeter, led the researchers, and the first author of the paper is Dr. Eva Latorre, a research associate at the same institution.

The study builds on previous research from the University of Exeter, which found that so-called splicing factors — which are a type of protein — tend to become inactive as we age.

In the study, the researchers added “resveralogues,” or chemicals similar to resveratrol, to #aging human cells and found that they reactivated these splicing factors. This, in turn, not only made the old cells appear younger, but they also started dividing again, as young cells would. “When I saw some of the cells in the culture dish rejuvenating I couldn’t believe it,” says Dr. Latorre. “These old cells were looking like young cells. It was like magic,” she says. “I repeated the experiments several times and in each case, the cells rejuvenated. I am very excited by the implications and potential for this research,” Dr. Latorre adds. “[The findings demonstrate] that when you treat old cells with molecules that restore the levels of the splicing factors, the cells regain some features of youth,” explains Prof. Harries. “They are able to grow, and their telomeres — the caps on the ends of the chromosomes that shorten as we age — are now longer, as they are in young cells.”

BLACK BEAN BROWNIES! ❤🌱
by @wearesovegan 💛
Recipe:
Makes 12 delicious gluten-free brownies
———Ingredients———
1 can black beans (240g drained weight)
1/2 avocado
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup walnuts
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp coconut oil (plus more for greasing)
Large pinch of salt
150g dark chocolate (suitable for vegans)
————Method————
1. Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a 12-slot muffin tray with coconut oil.
2. Drain and rinse beans, then add beans, avocado, sugar, cocoa powder, half the walnuts (1/4 cup), baking powder, vanilla extract, coconut oil and the salt to a food processor.
3. Melt 120g of the dark chocolate in a double boiler, then transfer to the food processor.
4. Combine ingredients in the food processor for 1-2 minutes.
5. Evenly distribute the mixture into the muffin tray (roughly one heaped tablespoon per slot).
6. Cut remaining chocolate into 12 pieces and put one piece on top of each brownie, pushing down gently on each piece of chocolate so they become partly submerged in the mixture.
7. Finely chop the remaining walnuts and sprinkle over brownies.
8. Place muffin tray in oven for 20-25 minutes (we take them out after 22 minutes).
9. Leave to cool completely before gently removing each brownie. The longer you leave them to cool, the easier they will be to remove them from the tin. Gently loosen the brownies out of the tin with the thin end of a fork. Enjoy! .
