How can I make my hereditary dark circles disappear without a lot of makeup?

my under-eye bags are unfortunately hereditary and I don't want to have to apply all this makeup in the morning to hide them. could I just do concealer and powder? or do I absolutely have to take the extra time? help!

no! all you need is lotion concealer and powder. make sure the concealer is one shade lighter than your skin tone. apply lotion under your eyes. dab the concealer under your eyes, focusing on the inner corner, blending out wards. after you all blended apply powder to your face and your good to go.


1.) you dont want to "erase" the dark circles because you will look fake. you just want to make the circles less noticleble.

2.) you can put teabags on your eyes the night before to reduce puffyness

good luck!  (+ info)

How can I get rid of hereditary acne?

I'm pretty sure my acne is hereditary because my dad also has really bad acne. How can I get rid of it? I know everyone's acne is different and different things work for different people, but what helped you the most?

Get good nutrition. These top five nutrients have been shown to have a very positive effect on your skin and in treating acne. These nutrients, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, selenium and chromium, can pack a powerful punch in your acne war.

Zinc - Zinc is the Acne stopper. It works in several ways to both treat acne and prevent it. It helps the body regulate certain hormones which prevents acne, but it also helps with wound healing, tissue regeneration and boosting the body's immune system.Most people in the United States actually have a marginal zinc deficiency, but you can get zinc from many of your favorite foods, such as seeds, nuts, legumes and whole grains.

Vitamin A - Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that helps you have beautiful, healthy hair and skin. You can find vitamin A from fruits and vegetables. Dark green vegetables and deep yellow vegetables as fruits give you a good dose of vitamin A by providing carotenes. Oatmeal is a good source of vitamin A, as well as cantaloupe, honeydew melon, broccoli, spinach and sweet potato. Liver contains a megadosis: watch out, vitamin A is stored in the body and you can actually get vitamin A poisoning.

Vitamin E - Vitamin E helps to normalize decreased levels of antioxidant enzymes. This is often prevalent in male acne patients, but vitamin E has proven beneficial to both male and female acne sufferers. Almonds, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, spinach, broccoli and mango are all great sources of vitamin E.Even a snack as simple as ¼ to ½ cups of raw nuts and seeds can help your skin become clearer and healthier.

Selenium - Selenium works much like vitamin E in that it also helps to normalize decreased levels of antioxidant enzymes. Selenium can be found in foods such as vegetables, meats and bread. Some nuts, such as Brazil nuts and walnuts are also rich in selenium. You can also supplement your diet with selenium, taking 100 to 200 micrograms per day. However, 3 ½ ounces of beef has 35 micrograms of selenium and 3 ounces of tuna has 63. Brazil nuts, though, are the winner with 544 micrograms of selenium per ounce.

Good Luck...  (+ info)

How can I lessen the darkness of hereditary under eye circles without makeup?

I've always had dark under eye circles, whether I'm tired/stressed/etc or not. My mom is the same way, so are my brother and sister, so it's hereditary. Can I lessen the color without the use of makeup?

Well what I did was put cold tea bags on my eyes and rest. You could put cucumber on your eyes too. It takes a week for them to get less darker and its very good for your skin.  (+ info)

What are some ways to prevent high blood pressure and heart disease if it is hereditary?

My mom and dad suffer from high blood pressure,high cholesterol. It run on both sides of the family,that along with diabetes and heart disease. My mom started taking blood pressure medication young,in her later 20's. My dad suffered from a stroke due to high blood pressure. I am 22yrs old and do not want to suffer this especially while young. Are there any ways I can be proactive about not suffering from those conditions now and later on in life being that it is hereditary? Or do I not have a chance in preventing it?

Keep your weight down through diet and exercise. And don't have stress in your life. That is all you can do.

If the heart disease has been mostly in one form, then consider testing for it now while there are no symptoms. It might provide problems getting health insurance, but you will be able to take steps to limit future problems. And vote democrat to ease the future insurance coverage problem as republicans are against people with heart disease getting insurance.

If you have a heredity disease it will probably already be detectable. Some forms of cardiomyopathy will appear in the late teens. Many highschool athletes have died from it. How quickly it advances depends in part on your lifestyle.  (+ info)

How big is the risk of having a miscarriage and is it hereditary?

My grandma, aunt, and cousin (from a different aunt), have all had miscarriages around 3 months. Can this be hereditary? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I am scared to death! I am eating healthy and trying to drink a lot of fluids. If you're going to have a miscarriage, is it inevitable, or can you always prevent it by good health, etc.?

Why do miscarriages occur?
The causes of miscarriage are not thoroughly understood. When a woman has a first-trimester miscarriage, her health care provider often cannot determine the cause. However, most miscarriages occur when a pregnancy is not developing normally. Usually, there is nothing a woman or her provider can do to prevent it.

Among factors known to cause first-trimester miscarriages, the most common is a chromosomal abnormality in the fetus. Chromosomes are the tiny thread-like structures in each cell that carry our genes, which dictate all traits from eye color to the workings of our internal organs. Each person has 23 pairs of chromosomes, or 46 in all, with one chromosome per pair coming from the mother and one from the father. Up to 70 percent of first-trimester miscarriages are caused by chromosomal abnormalities in the fetus.3

Most chromosomal abnormalities result from a faulty egg or sperm cell. Before pregnancy, immature egg and sperm cells divide to form mature cells with 23 chromosomes. Sometimes, the cell splits unevenly, resulting in egg or sperm cells with too many or too few chromosomes. If a cell has the wrong number of chromosomes, the embryo has a chromosomal abnormality and is usually miscarried. Chromosomal abnormalities become more common with aging, and women over age 35 are at higher risk of miscarriage than younger women.

Chromosomal abnormalities also can result in a “blighted ovum”—a pregnancy sac that contains no fetus, either because the embryo did not form or because it stopped developing very early. In early pregnancy, the woman may notice that her pregnancy symptoms have stopped and she may develop dark-brown vaginal bleeding. An ultrasound examination will show an empty pregnancy sac. A “blighted ovum” will eventually result in miscarriage, though miscarriage may not occur for weeks. Because waiting for a miscarriage can be upsetting, doctors often offer the woman the option of emptying the uterus with a procedure called a D&C (dilation and curettage). However, waiting for a miscarriage to occur naturally should not harm a woman’s health or chances for a healthy future pregnancy. A woman and her provider choose the approach that is best for her.

Other factors that can contribute to early miscarriage include hormonal problems, infections, and maternal health problems (such as poorly controlled diabetes, systemic lupus erythematosus, or thyroid disease. A recent study found that women with an infection called bacterial vaginosis were nine times more likely to have a miscarriage than uninfected women.4

A mother’s lifestyle also may increase her risk of a first-trimester miscarriage. Studies suggest that women who drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, or use illicit drugs may increase their risk.5 One study also suggested that women who use pain-relieving medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen) and aspirin around the time of conception may also increase their risk of miscarriage.6

Second-trimester miscarriage often is caused by problems with the uterus (such as an abnormally shaped uterus) or by a weakened cervix that dilates prematurely. As with first-trimester losses, maternal infections and chromosomal abnormalities can cause later miscarriages. Chromosomal abnormalities appear to cause about 20 percent of second-trimester miscarriages.3 Certain maternal immune system problems (such as lupus) also can cause these losses.

Factors that usually do not increase the risk of miscarriage include having sex, working outside the home (unless a woman works with harmful chemicals), and exercise.

Hope this helps and my thoughts and prays are with you and yours also included the website  (+ info)
