濕疹、保濕用品及更多用家分享

年紀大機器壞香港又被催淚彈污染……,唔多廢話,只係想分享近排試過真心覺正嘅~

1. BFFECT 玻尿酸保濕精華液 (第一代Na-PCA用緊第4、5枝好好,第二代寡糖胺基酸未開,應該比較潤,啱我啲DRY人)
我皮膚又乾又油又敏感;雞髀就雞蛋敏感加濕疹,唔保濕就一面係。

玻尿酸即透明質酸
透明質酸(又名玻尿酸 Hyaluronic Acid)是人體真皮層的其中一種成份,具備保持水份的能力。
正常角質層含水量約在10到15%之間,如果含水量低於10%,肌膚就會開始乾燥脫皮,出現缺水紋,同時也會進一步造成真皮組織的水分流失,形成皺紋鬆弛.透明質酸能增加皮膚的含水性,保持肌膚的濕潤度,讓肌膚呈現應有彈性和光澤,能達到長期保濕,留駐肌膚水分。根據大量研究表明,人體皮膚表層(角質層)水分含量約占15-30%,低於或高於此值均使人不適,具有燥感或膩感,長期如此,會使皮膚乾裂或水腫,從而使皮膚失去彈性,粗糙老化。而透明質酸作用於皮膚內部調理後,可在不同環境中自動調節,始終維持皮膚水分在25-30%,保持皮膚的濕潤、清爽,使皮膚更富有彈性,起到抗皺防皺、延緩人全皮膚衰老、美容養顏的作用。

Na-PCA鈉羥基皮酪烷酮_天然保濕因數
PCA是一種迅速降解物,來自氨基酸。有高度吸水效能,是人體皮膚內自然產生的一部分天然保濕因子(NMF),主要功能是保持皮膚健康的表皮和水份,PCA有很強的吸濕力,能自然地從空氣中吸引水分,幫助頭髮和皮膚補濕。它不會引起粉刺和刺激皮膚,甚至在濃度高達50%,都不會有光敏或敏感反應。由於其含水量結合的能力,是一種高性能的保濕劑,加入產品中能增加皮膚的柔軟度。

寡糖胺基酸
SUBLISKIN™
效用:撫平乾燥細紋撫紋因子寡糖胺基酸,為微生物發酵所得之寡醣,用於幫助脆弱且薄的肌膚對抗每日的外在侵略,以維持肌膚美麗。能對抗水分流失及改善肌膚彈性與密度、刺激玻尿酸、第V型層黏蛋白( laminin-5)和彈力蛋白的合成、強化肌膚屏障並減緩皺紋。

BFFECT 官網: https://bffect.com/zh-tw/
透明質酸大家都知係咩嚟,不過暫時我用過性價比最高係佢,港幣8X蚊枝精華,真係唔知去邊度搵,訂夠10枝送香港都免運費,亦可以用國際轉運,好簡單。

應該用咗化妝水,然後用兩滴再搽cream鎖水嘅。
我呢期極敏感爛面,索性用泉水算。咁就係第二款用咗幾個月嘅Avene。
Avene泉水 + BFFECT透明質酸 + Avene 抗敏感保濕。
雞髀都有用Avene BB 沖涼系列,OK啦,勝在平,搽兩滴BFFECT + 繼續 Vanicream,通常AMAZON買。


2. Avene 香港官網
咁,屈人寺同萬寧勁貴我梗係唔用,通常去Santediscount法國網購,再加另一國際轉運,泉水直接莎莎藥房之類買都係5、6十蚊枝就唔煩喇,cream果啲可以平一半左右。


3. Boneco放濕機
舊機壞咗,梗係cheap到爆去香港格價網買最平U200,so far放濕功能強勁,令我凌晨三點幾濕到醒,唔好向床噴。;p

4.加埋部DYSON空氣清新風扇,自我感覺良好。

5.然後眼又乾,除咗滴眼藥水、少用MON同電話(邊得吖)朋友推介食ForDays核酸,其實我相信除咗貴,冇咩唔好。咁核酸呢家嘢又係難吸收難運送…你信咪試,我就慳啲搵SUPERFOOD算。
Chlorella綠球藻同Spirulina 螺旋藻
短時間食,OK啩,反正平同感覺有益無害,先推介︰
全部iHerb有售,想要推介CODE就click
綠球藻好臭,但佢先多核酸,螺旋藻完全照常吞冇難度。兩款superfood好處google大量,就唔貼喇。

6.講開保健品,就再加埋CREATINE肌酸啦,都係周圍有兼平冇(乜)副作用而證實有效。(我都有食HMB,覺得老人家食係可以冇咁攰,但比較貴,同睇過啲REVIEW話食肉就得,所以唔推。)


7.坂詰式深蹲減重法,CLICK入去睇簡介
食肌酸做乜,咪又係一個肥婆由生完雞髀已開始想但冇實行嘅keep返正常啲嘅夢想……再係咁真係死得。大謝教我行樓梯,一星期兩三日啦而家,但肥婆點解會肥,除咗嗜甜年紀大新陳代謝率低賴同雞髀睇功課其實掛住玩電話外,主要咪就係怕辛苦囉。目前只有樓梯加每星期一次不能令人減磅的瑜伽…加好間唔中嘅Plank。

深蹲應該聽過好耐,但每日3分鐘運動真係最爽嘅方法,感覺上如果咁都做唔到,我真係死咗佢好過。^^

不過,魔鬼都在細節…其實人哋講明你要先節食,同時做呢啲維持甚至增加肌肉。

舊嘢一推:
8.Tanita體脂肪磅
是咁的,大學時期屈同學送嘅生日禮物到今日都仲WORK,真係無話可說,而家多咗牌子多咗分唇,總之要持續每日同時間上磅同埋keep 返record啫,有做果排係會瘦…新機肯畀錢的話,會bluetooth同你keep 埋record落電話添。睇吓個舊磅有冇機會壞啦。(我見fat %成日3尾4頭經常懷疑佢壞……)

9.仲有一大堆計卡路里營養嘅APP例如MyNetDiary
坂詰上面本書有講,通常會肥嘅人都係以為自己冇乜食嘢,冇乜記性同節制力嘅,肯keep又係邁向成功一大步喇。

咁多聖誕禮物選擇,我真係唔話得,哈。:)

濕疹戰


雞髀仔嘅濕疹時好時壞~
呢期超差

喂你有冇試雞蛋油~
喂,鑊撈呢?
喂,你身體有毒素…

STOP!
我知,偏方有無數款,我想要正方。

咁,直覺話由食物敏感方向睇~

由於時間嘅關係,去完旅行即GOOGLE咗間幾乎可以即刻BOOK到嘅HKBIOTEK做IgA / IgE (19種) / IgG (吸入48種)同亞洲食物類 Blood Test~

跟著朋友一睇就話,IgG冇用㗎,IgE先係測食物敏感

咦,咁咪畀人搵笨囉,雖然畀曬錢,都要睇清楚啲先~

Author information
Abstract
Eczema, a common pediatric dermatosis with unclear pathogenesis, can seriously affect the life quality of children due to its recurrence and long course. Recent study has found that food specific IgG (sIgG) might be involved in the course of eczema. To analyze the correlation between childhood eczema and sIgG and evaluate the role of avoiding taking intolerance food in the treatment of childhood eczema, this study enrolled 216 children with eczema who were admitted to the Taian Maternal and Child Health Care Hospital, Shandong, China, between August 2014 and October 2015. They were divided into an eczema group (N = 140) and an allergy group (N = 76). Eighty healthy children who were admitted to the Department of Children Healthcare in the same period were selected as a control group. Enzymelinked immuno sorbent assay (ELISA) was used to detect the serum sIgG level. The result showed that the sIgG positive rates of children in the eczema group and allergy group were 91.4% and 93.4%, respectively, and the difference had no statistical significance (P > 0.05). However, the sIgG positive rates of children in the eczema group and allergy group were significantly higher than that in the control group (P less than 0.05). Milk and eggs were the major allergy-causing food for children with sIgG positive rates higher than 70%. The sIgG test results revealed that eggs had the highest allergenicity, followed by milk, tomatoes and soybeans, and pork was not highly sensitive. Therefore, it can be concluded that sIgG positive rate of children with eczema is high, and examination of food sIgG antibody in serum is valuable in the diagnosis and treatment of childhood eczema.
PMID: 29685016
似乎我冇畀人搵笨,有濕疹嘅sIgG係值得TEST。

咁朋友或香港過敏協會講嘅IgG冇用係咩意思呢?睇下表會清楚啲:SOURCE


相信係Allergy 過敏; Sensitivity敏感同Intolerance不耐嘅分別。

咁由於食物過敏即時反應好大可以死人,基本上唔驗都知咗(或死咗)。
而食物敏感就未必睇得出,而按以上咁少人嘅測驗話IgG驗血其實有價值。即係我可以參考本文最上圖,雞髀仔最大鑊嘅唔係食物,而係霉菌。(雞蛋其實都係要戒食幾個月先嘅)

好在,喺屋企空氣清新機ok,但出街返學應該有難度。呢度話:「帶N95口罩可阻擋95%以上次微米顆粒(大小在0.3微米以上的微粒),但由於N95口罩的呼吸阻抗較高,不適合一般民眾長時間配戴,且應避免重複使用。」

望吓大神又有減價,買多部放房。

按佢講法,霉菌係PM5可除


塵蟎佢個IgG都唔低,繼續用RAYCOP RP吸吸佢。
係好鬼重,不過新呢部加埋70度,烘埋張床褥真係好鬼正,乾就可以殺埋霉菌。

另,仲有去樂天訂納豆君,納豆菌食霉,GOOGLE吓啦~

心諗再唔得就去養和睇免疫療法,不過HK BIOTEK個靚女營養師話免疫療法可能係醫嚴重Allergy which雞髀仔IgE係冇事嘅。
咁就慳返,打過去過敏科問免疫療法,好似未開呢科,或者有資源都畀咗CANCER先。
過敏科價錢就養和咁價囉~有錢嘅朋友唔使諗,可以先睇。;P

好,有好轉再UPDATE。暫時唯一戒蛋半年先~
P.S. 另有一間話驗FABER 主要係驗IgE,不過無緣聯絡唔到,就由佢lu。

專注力不足與認知訓練系列之二

由於PowerBrainRX「免費」認知能力測試,(留意6歲以上先係),咁梗係又約嚟玩咗。

同類嘅TEST可以喺Cognifit搵到。

報告都講得好details,起碼同我預計嘅近似,佢係聰明轉數好快小朋友,聽覺記憶力更高(都解釋到點解14個月大就可以哼歌仔),但專注力就…


呢幅圖由powerbrain啲小冊子度嚟,專心係學習嘅第一步,好難唔同意。
直到目前呢點,我基本上都係覺得唔買都睇吓,份報告係話到一啲你小朋友嘅能力畀你聽嘅。同埋consultant亦都幾溫柔解釋得幾詳細。當然,佢哋始絡係商業公司,訓練內容要保密,佢都畀咗一個例子我嘅,有啲似你係Lumosity搵到嘅免費遊戲。咁,訂價當然係唔會平,但我問咗好多意見都話每堂幾百至數千元係呢類私營治療嘅門檻。

好,然後,如果真係有留意薯淘同雞嘅朋友,應該知我份人成日寫攻略。我用還原水「醫好咗」我嘅原發性血小板增生,數據正常當好啦吓,實情係少飲水就會上返,反正要keep住check。

於是就去睇一大堆嘢,好很攰,but seems promising!呢個list應該會繼續expand落去~

了解4項專注力
大致係呢啲:
Types of Attention
Sustained attention is the ability to focus on one specific task for a continuous amount of time without being distracted.

Selective attention is the ability to select from many factors or stimuli and to focus on only the one that you want while filtering out other distractions.

Alternating attention is the ability to switch your focus back and forth between tasks that require different cognitive demands.

Divided attention is the ability to process two or more responses or react to two or more different demands simultaneously. Divided attention is often referred to as multi-tasking.

關於 brain / cognitive training 嘅研究時間好短,甚至比還元水仲短。PowerbrainRX套方法係由美國LearningRX為亞洲人,尤其香港學童修改而嚟(因為要寫中文字,難過英文字母好多咁話,背後理據如何,邊個改,點樣改唔知,反正你又搵唔到原本嚟對比架喇。)

我諗呢個viedo大概可以簡介吓brain training係做乜。大概就係好似鍛鍊二頭肌等你肌肉發逹後可以舉重少少嘢一樣,鍛練你個腦相應腦區。香港呢邊consultant話衝動行為,執行能力不足係前額葉嘅觸突呀連結呀發展得唔夠,佢話透過1對1鍛練就可以增加返呢啲觸突同連結。(嗱,你唔需要去做MRI住,反正唔好期望佢哋講嘅嘢係金科玉律,幾權威嘅人都會錯,我唔係SELL你嘢,冇責任幫你check埋真假。)

咁,如果想睇多啲,可以由喼神入手…啩。LearningRX創辦人。
Dr KEN GIBSON


係,上去做TEST,consultant都好樂意免費送呢本書仔,入面有獨立研究報告指出上完LearningRX各方面能力提升3幾年咁話。

另外佢研究所Gibson Institute都有幾十年呢啲research內容summary
例如最新呢篇Jedlicka, E. (2017). LearningRx cognitive training for children and adolescents ages 5-18: Effects on academic skills, behavior, and cognition. Frontiers in Education, 2(62). doi: 10.3389/feduc.2017.00062
重點:梗係話有效,留意湖池係私立,又唔係話排最top果啲學府。

LearningRX Insider Secrets: How to Negotiate a Better Price from LearningRX
重點:
According to one LearningRX insider (who’s contributing under the name Former LRX), despite the company’s claims that its programs benefit nearly every student, the LearningRX program “helps some a lot, some a little, and some not at all…”
“LRX gets good results for those students who work hard and stay focused on training, who have fun through the process,” writes Former LRX.
“Signing up is the right answer as long as you do so with your eyes wide open. That’s why I am here, because I don’t think most parents have their eyes wide open.”
雞髀仔去TEST果日就好開心,佢其實只要有奬pocketmon嘢就好開心,成日問我幾時再去上。

員工點睇
重點:似乎員工幾like公司,不單單為錢。

重點:FTC曾經告過一堆BRAIN TRAINING SERVICE PROVIDER,而LearningRX搵返位去反駁,講成件事點settle,照計間嘢目前仍然未執笠,即係有理由相係可能work嘅。

D. Expert Validation of LearningRx’s Substantiation
LearningRx’s substantiation has been reviewed by Dr. Howard Wainer, Distinguished Research Scientist with the National Board of Medical Examiners, retired Professor of Statistics at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, former Principal Research Scientist with the Educational Testing Service, and author of numerous articles and books on statistics. See Dr. Wainer’s analysis and findings, along with his curriculum vitae. He concludes that:

(1) Research other than RCTs, including powerful observational studies, can and commonly do provide “evidence to estimate causal effect”;

(2) LearningRx’s observational and randomized controlled studies “all support the credibility of the claims made that those trained using the LearningRx approach markedly increased scores on IQ tests and, more particularly, on sub-scores of those tests”;

(3) Randomization was not feasible for the small subgroups, such as TBI, autism, and dyslexia, but “with effects as consistently large as was being observed, the decision to go forward, as was done, was both ethically and scientifically preferable. Within the constraints that exist, therefore, there is convincing evidence supporting the claims of efficacy made.”
In sum, LearningRx’s efficacy claims are well-supported by the pre-post data from the many thousands of students who have completed the program, RCTs, the expert opinion of an eminent statistician, and the scientific literature with regard to the claims of correlation between cognitive ability and academic, financial, and athletic achievement.

佢哋自己做嘅更多independent support (冇人知係咪真係independent)

但brain training只有幾十年,其實佢哋啲研究結果已經比還元水吸引少少,雞髀6歲,等debate到佢7、8十歲?大量testimonial話work,但即使2015年亦繼續有研究話冇乜明顯效果,但依然改善咗working memory:

另,繼續搵落去,更多腦部訓練電腦遊戲推介:

其中呢個耶魯大學研發嘅ACTIVATE™
好似幾吸引,仲繼續研究緊有冇效:
Cognitive computer training in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) versus no intervention: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

咁,其實已經同意雞髀去PowerBrainRX上堂,再睇吓點。問咗會唔會有咩可以喺屋企畀佢做,consultant話唔使,但我笨唔係浪得虛名嘅。
6 Brain Training Exercises for Children and Teens
重點:教家長喺屋企幫吓佢哋,睇落都幾合理。
3. The Concentration Game. Activities to improve memory and concentration are important for all of us! For younger children, you can take a few of their toys and line them up. Then cover them and take one away. See if they can tell you which one is missing. You can also have them try to remember short lists of familiar objects in the home. Try remembering them forward and backward. For older children and teens, try putting random objects in front of them for 15 seconds, then remove the objects and see how many they can remember. Start out with five and keep increasing the number as they master the task. You can also help auditory memory by giving them a random list of numbers or words orally and having them repeat them. Start with only 2 or 3 and work up from there.
對雞髀咁差嘅visual short-term memory好似幾有用,可以試吓。
