Heal the Burn: 6 Grooming Products That Will Help Treat Sun Damage

Spend enough time outdoors this summer and you’ll get at least a little red, even if you’re diligent about sunscreen.

 

Here are six ways to get relief, from scalp shampoo to post-sun cooling gel that’ll keep your skin hydrated while helping you maintain your tan.

Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo

Men with short or thinning hair often end up with scalp sunburn, which can trigger dandruff. The salicylic acid in Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo ($ 28) works as an exfoliant to clear away flakes, while the ginger extract curbs inflammation. [amazon.com]

How to treat male pattern baldness

Some of Hollywood’s most badass leading men rock a bald head. Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Bruce Willis, just to name a few. But we get that it’s not for everyone.

Are you one of the 70% of men suffering from male pattern baldness? Do you want to stop it, and even, possibly, reverse it? Boil a cup of mustard oil with 4Tbsp of henna leaves, let it cool, then massage it daily onto the balding areas. Better yet, create a paste from honey, beer, and boiled wheat, and have it applied gently (to your scalp, of course) by the hands of a virgin. Or you could rub goose droppings onto your dome, the way the Vikings did. Other types of animal excrement could work as well: Cow feces and pig urine are both good topical solutions. And if the business end of a cow doesn’t provide relief, turn her around and have her lick a combination of molasses and oats off your head. There’s a baldness clinic in South America that swears it will return your hair to its teenage luster.

Sound crazy? Not to everyone. A full head of hair is associated with strength, virility, youth, and power. Though men aren’t encouraged to openly discuss their emotional reaction to hair loss, it’s there. Frustration, depression, loss of self-esteem, social withdrawal, even suicide. It’s not just about looks, although that’s certainly a part of it; it’s about a loss of control, the passage of time, mortality. “When men lose their hair, it can be devastating,” says Spencer Kobren, founder and president of the American Hair Loss Association and founder of thebaldtruth.com. “Most guys would do just about anything to keep from going bald. We’d rather regrow our hair than lose body fat. If you told a balding guy he could keep his hair if he were to run five miles a day and eat a specific diet, he’d absolutely do it. An overweight guy? Maybe. Hair is different.”

Kobren should know. He started losing his hair in his early 20s, and he panicked. He reasoned that women would rather date a man with all his hair. (He might have been correct. During an online dating experiment conducted in the U.K., two photographs with identical descriptions of the same man were used—except one had been digitally altered to show him with thinning hair, while the other showed a full head—the thick-haired profile received nearly five times as many responses from women). So he hung upside down with gravity boots after taking niacin capsules to create a flushing sensation; rubbed cayenne pepper on his scalp to stimulate hair growth; and wrapped his head in scalding-hot towels to draw out the oily matter called sebum from the sebaceous glands, because he’d heard the theory that oil buildup beneath the scalp’s surface can damage hair follicles.

None of it worked, of course. “There are as many desperate home remedies as there are receding hairlines,” Kobren says. “If any of them really worked, it would be prime-time, headline news. You really think some guy in his basement in Wisconsin has the cure to hair loss? You want to believe it, but come on.” Of the seemingly infinite treatment options to slow or reverse baldness, there are only three that are widely accepted as valid. But before you learn how to keep your hair, you need to understand why you’re losing it.

Male pattern baldness

Men have been suffering from androgenetic alopecia, otherwise known as male pattern baldness, since before the first coming of Christ. Julius Caesar was memorialized many times in stone with what was left of his hair combed forward, and a signature wreath covering his pate. Receding hairlines and bald spots plague men of every race, creed, and status. But why?

According to Bernard Arocha, M.D., president and owner of Arocha Hair Restoration, MPB occurs when a man has a genetic predisposition to sensitivity to the potent androgenic hormone called dihydrotestosterone. In most men, about 5% of their serum testosterone is converted to DHT by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. To those with the inherited sensitivity, DHT acts like a toxin on the hair follicles along the temples and mid-anterior scalp, undermining the absorption of nutrients and causing progressive miniaturization, which is when the growth phase of the follicles is shortened.

“There are 100,000 to 150,000 follicles on a full scalp,” Arocha says, “all of which follow growth and rest phases. The growing (anagen) phase usually lasts about three to six years, during which time each hair matures in thickness and color. The resting (telogen) phase, when a hair ends its growth phase and falls out, lasts about 90 days. At any given time, only about 10% of follicles are in the resting phase, so normal hair loss is not noticeable.” But for men with DHT sensitivity, over time, the growth phases of the follicles become so short that they grow only very fine, almost colorless hair (vellus hairs) until the miniaturization is complete and they produce none at all. Interestingly, the follicles around the ears and at the back of the head aren’t affected by DHT, and MPB sufferers are left with a horseshoe pattern of hair.

More recently, researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have identified an abnormal amount of a lipid called prostaglandin D2 in the bald scalp of men with MPB. While the new findings haven’t yielded any treatment, “it’s a new piece of the puzzle,” Kobren says. “We know that DHT is a major culprit, but maybe it’s not only DHT that causes MPB.” Scientists continue to look for other genetic and environmental factors to explain—and treat—baldness. Several groups are now looking at the relationship between the microscopic receptors that bind to vitamin D in skin cells. “There’s always interesting research being conducted,” Kobren says. “It’s always disappointing if the findings are ultimately inconclusive—but we keep hoping for a breakthrough.”

Treatment options

For reasons scientists don’t fully understand, sensitive follicles must be exposed to DHT for a prolonged period of time before the miniaturization process is complete. But what they have learned is that taking a drug that inhibits the binding of 5-alpha-reductase on testosterone can reduce the levels of DHT and thus slow or even stop the miniaturization process. There is such a drug and it’s called finasteride (sold as Propecia), the first of the three aforementioned treatment options.

“Finasteride blocks 70% of the conversion of testosterone to DHT,” Arocha says. “There are some reported sexual side effects such as erectile dysfunction, problems with ejaculation, and depression, so you should speak to your doctor before taking it. However, there have been very good results for stopping hair loss and even regrowing hair.” According to the product website, most men in the clinical studies see results within three to 12 months. If no improvement is seen after that time, further treatment is unlikely to be of benefit. Also, if you quit using the product, you will likely lose the hair you retained or regrew while under the treatment.

Even better than finasteride alone is when it’s used in conjunction with the second treatment: the topical solution minoxidil (sold as Rogaine). “Minoxidil is like a follicle fertilizer,” Kobren says. It acts as a vasodilator that keeps hair in the anagen phase longer and can increase the diameter of those downy vellus hairs, but it doesn’t get to the root cause of hair loss. “Only 35% of men are able to slow or stop hair loss with minoxidil alone, and only 10% see regrowth, usually in the crown area, and like the finasteride, the benefits stop if you stop using the product,” Arocha says. “But using both together over time yields the best nonsurgical results possible.”

Which brings us to the final treatment option, and one that both Arocha and Kobren say should be the last resort: hair transplantation. “I sat in a transplant doctor’s office in 1988, and he told me that if I were his son, he’d say try a few grafts. That was back when they used to put in 4mm plugs. I was thinning, sure, but I was 22 years old. If I’d let him put plugs in me then, I’d have ended up looking like a hairbrush with bristles of 30 hairs each lined up in rows and columns starting at my hairline. It would have ruined my life.”

Fortunately, the technology has dramatically improved and now doctors like Arocha can harvest individual follicular units—a natural grouping of one to five hairs—from permanent donor sites above the ear and at the back of the head, and move them to the thinning or bald areas. Arocha, who also started to lose his hair at a young age, approaches each scalp as though it were a canvas: the harvested follicles the paint, and he the artist. “Think of a forest,” he says. “At the edge, you see shrubbery first, then a few trees, then groups of trees that grow thicker the further you go. I observe that same principle, carefully placing the donor follicles in a progression. There must be artistry in the technique, or the results can be disastrous.”

The average cost for a transplant is $ 7,000-$ 15,000 or more. “Buyer beware,” Arocha says. “Do careful research on the transplant surgeon and his technique. Know what’s involved and what’s at stake. And realize that the result depends largely on the amount of ‘paint’ a surgeon has to work with.” But when it works, it really works. “I can’t tell you how many men come back and tell me that their hair restoration has given them back not just their hair but also their lives. That’s proof that it’s worth it.”

News in Brief: GOP Warns Refugees Likely To Be Driven To Terrorism By Way America Would Treat Them

CHARLESTON, SC—Declaring that opening the nation’s doors to displaced Syrians posed a major security threat, GOP leaders warned Tuesday that any refugees who resettled in the U.S. would most likely be driven to terrorism by the way America treats them. “We absolutely cannot provide a safe haven to these Syrians due to the very real threat that the abusive and hateful conduct of Americans will push the refugees toward radicalization and recruitment by extremist militant groups,” said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), echoing the sentiments of numerous other presidential candidates and state governors who have argued that Syrian asylum seekers would in all probability embrace a radical jihadist worldview after constantly enduring anti-Muslim hate speech, racial epithets, and threats of violence and persecution by both the American people and government officials. “The moment we let these Syrians in, I promise that our most ruthless and cruel tendencies will …

News in Brief: Man Hates It When Other Guys Treat His Girlfriend With Respect

COLUMBUS, OH—Calling it a “major problem” that happens far too often, local man Tyler Harris, 26, told reporters Wednesday that he absolutely hates it when other guys come up to his girlfriend and treat her with respect. “All these dudes think they can just walk right up to Amanda and start speaking to her like she’s a fellow human being and I’m not gonna notice? They better back off,” said Harris, who added that anyone who’s considering asking her about her unique personal interests and desires or assumes she has opinions of her own should definitely think twice before trying anything. “What do they think they’re doing by attentively listening to what she has to say and considering her thoughts and feelings when interacting with her?

It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. The rituals of All Hallows Eve were devised to protect us from their evil mischief, and one small town is about to be taught a terrifying lesson that some traditions are best not forgotten. Nothing is what it seems when a suburban couple learns the dangers of blowing out a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight; four women cross paths with a costumed stalker at a local festival; a group of pranksters goes too far and discovers the horrifying truth buried in a local legend; and a cantankerous old hermit is visited by a strange trick-or-treater with a few bones to pick. Costumes and candy, ghouls and goblins, monsters and mayhem…the tricks and treats of Halloween turn deadly as strange creatures of every variety-human and otherwise-try to survive the scariest night of the year.

Back Acne: What You Need To Know To Prevent And Treat Breakouts

Let’s talk about back acne. You know, those breakouts (consisting of pink pimples and clogged pores) that you know are there but can’t see?

Addressing bacne starts with treating the skin on the neck, shoulders and back with the same caution and concern as the skin on the face, according to board-certified dermatologist Jessica Weiser.

A gentle, well-balanced regimen will yield better results and avoid damaging the skin in the process,” says Weiser. Simple steps such as bathing after working out and avoiding skincare products with harsh irritants and fragrances are key.

To feel super confident when baring our backs this summer, Weiser told us everything we need to know to beat bacne. Here’s what to do and what to avoid.

Shower immediately after exercising. “Never leave sweat-soaked clothing on the skin surface,” says Weiser. Sweat, exercise, tight-fitting clothing, non-breathable fabrics and other forms of surface occlusion (like a backpack) are some of the main causes of bacne. Use a pH balancing body wash, salicylic acid/benzoyl peroxide cleanser or a sulfur-based soap to remove excess oils, debris and bacteria from the skin surface before they clog pores and cause acne breakouts.

Don’t forget to exfoliate. “Unlike the face, the pores on the back are much larger and significantly more prone to congestion so they can tolerate an exfoliating cleanser two to three times a week to improve cell turnover and keep pores free of dead skin cells and debris,” says Weiser. Just be sure to avoid scrubbing the skin too vigorously, as the dermatologist says it can damage or scar the skin and over-dry the skin surface, which stimulates oil production that triggers further acne flares.

Reconsider using scented laundry products. According to Weiser, fragrance detergents can cause increased irritation and dryness on the skin surface, which triggers inflammation. “Waxy coating on dryer sheets and fabric softener can also cause clogged pores and acne flares,” she says.

Choose your beauty products cautiously. “Shampoo, hair conditioner and styling products contain a variety of comedogenic ingredients including sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate,” says Weiser. These ingredients along with sunscreens and skin care products containing lanolin, petroleum/petrolatum and silicone derivatives may also cause breakouts and skin irritation.

If acne is unresponsive to at-home treatment and over-the-counter medications, visit a doctor. Early intervention is the best form of prevention against scarring. “The same in-office procedures that apply to the face can also be successfully applied to that back — try microdermabrasion, antimicrobial glycolic acid chemical peels, blue light or red light treatments,” she adds.

Do you struggle with back acne? Have you found successful ways to clear up and prevent breakouts? Tell us in the comments section.
