What is PCOS?
Polycystic ovary syndrome is an endocrine disorder that affects approximately 5% of all women. Most women with PCOS grow many small cysts on their ovaries. The cysts themselves  are not harmful, but lead to hormone imbalances.  It can cause problems with menstrual periods, or amenorrhea and make it difficult to get pregnant. Women who have PCOS do not regularly ovulate.   In fact, it is a leading cause of infertility.  If left untreated or undiagnosed, over time, it can lead to diabetes and heart disease. Read more »

Pharma Skin Care – Skin Care Tips

1. Sun Protection

More than anything else, sun protection will help to prevent the aging of your skin, The sun is largely responsible for wrinkling, blotchy pig entation (Lentigines, also called “liver spots”), thinning of the skin, broken blood vessels (telangectasias), dryness, texture changes, uneven color and some sun related skin diseases that make the skin look older. Daily use of sunscreen products with at least an SPF of 15 along with protective clothing such as full-brimmed hats, long sleeved blouses and shirts, and slacks instead of shorts will greatly reduce the aging of the skin and the possibility of skin cancer. Sunglasses will also protect the eyelids from aging and will help reduce crows feet by reducing the squinting which comes from sun exposure without eye protection. Read more »
