The Hands Of This 46-Year-Old Looked Like She Is 70 But When Her Friend Told Her This Secret Recipe, She Couldn’t Recognize Her Hands!

WE USE OUR HANDS EVERY DAY AND EXPERTS SAY THAT THEY SHOW THE FIRST SIGNS OF AGING.

Why is it so? Because the skin on the hands is very thin and sensitive. Fortunately, with a little effort, you can restore your youthful hands.

Noticeable aging.

The back of the hand has very little fat and, therefore, when the fibers of collagen and elastin begin to break, the effect becomes more noticeable. Constantly washing and exposure to various chemicals can have a great impact on them, so it is not surprising that they require extra care.

Eggs.

Experts say that this powerful food helps to restore elasticity. It’s very simple – take the egg whites and mix them with one tablespoon of honey. Then grease the hands with this mixture and let them dry. Wash with soap and water.

Potatoes.

Potatoes can make your hands smooth again. Boil a few medium-sized potatoes and mash them using fork. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, honey and milk and put this mixture in the fridge. Apply the mixture 2-3 times a week and let it stay on your hands for about 15 minutes. Wash with soap and water.

Rosehip oil.

Rosehip oil will help you return the elasticity and strength of your hands, and this oil is also very nutritious. Massage your hands every day with this oil and relax them.

Lemon and sugar.

Squeeze half a lemon and mix it with 2 tablespoons of sugar and rub this mixture on your hands to improve the microcirculation. Wash with soap and cold water.

Almond oil.

Soak the hands in almond oil and then in cold water for about 5 minutes and then apply greasy cream. Put on cotton gloves on your hands and leave them overnight. In the morning your hands will be fully hydrated.

Vaseline.

You should apply some Vaseline on your hands, put on cotton gloves and leave them overnight.

Stop biting your nails.

This affects the skin on your palms, and also slows down the nail growth which makes your hands look even older.

Avoid using very hot water.

Avoid exposing your hands to very hot water since this can dehydrate them. Instead, use lukewarm or cold water.

Protect your hands from the cold weather

Always wear gloves when it’s cold outside, because they are the most vulnerable then.

Sickle cell may get solution soon – scientists.

Published

Scientists in the U.S. have unveiled results of a small clinical trial that could mean an effective “cure” for sickle cell anemia, the painful and debilitating disease that inflicts many millions of people across the globe, mostly of African heritage and including some 100,000 African Americans in the U.S.



Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) say they have used gene therapy techniques to add a “corrected” gene for healthy red blood cells into the bodies of nine test patients, replacing their diseased red blood cells caused by sickle cell anemia and effectively ridding them of signs of the disease.

NIH Director Francis Collins described the trial results as seemingly “spectacular”.

“When you look at their blood counts and their blood smears, it looks like they don’t have it anymore,” Collins said on Monday (March 11) from his office at the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C.

Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder that causes protein crystals to form inside red blood cells, changing their shape from a flat disk into a crescent or sickle shape that then clogs up the small blood vessels and results in terrible episodes of pain and organ damage.

But they believe the basic premise of introducing a corrected gene into the body holds promise for Africa provided a simpler, cheaper and less toxic delivery system than bone marrow transplant and the accompanying chemotherapy can be found.

DR Congo: Armed men attack Ebola treatment centre again.

Published

on

Armed men have once again attacked an Ebola treatment centre in North Kivu, the restive east of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), killing a policeman and wounding a health worker, according to local authorities.



The facility, located at Butembo in North Kivu province, only resumed operations last week after a previous assault by gunmen had forced its closure.

Saturday’s attack was successfully repelled by security forces, Sylvain Kanyamanda, identified by the Reuters and Associated Press news agencies as Butembo’s mayor, said.

“Because of previous attacks, a security system was already in place and attackers were quickly confronted by the police officers guarding the …centre,” he told Reuters, adding that the attackers belonged to the Mai-Mai rebel group.

The health worker was shot and being treated in hospital.
