    WHEN standard-issue deodorants don't beat your body odor, there's one dermatologist-approved solution. Experts revealed that a common ingredient in acne treatments is a great way to stick it to BO this summer. 2If you have body odor, a common skincare ingredient may help fight bad smellsCredit: Getty According to dermatologists who spoke to The Zoe Report, your sweat doesn't smell, but the bacteria left behind after a long, hot day can make you stink. To stop your underarms from developing an odor, you need to eliminate those bacteria, which is where glycolic acid comes in. You might use glycolic acid already to brighten your skin, exfoliate rough spots, or prevent acne, but it can do so much more. “It is thought that glycolic may help address body odor by lowering the pH of the skin and thus, making it less likely for bacteria to survive,” explained Dr Brendan Camp of MDCS Dermatology.

    DO you sleep curled up against your partner's back, enclosed safely in their arms, or all the way on the opposite side of the bed? How you sleep as a couple may indicate how you feel about your spouse, body language experts said. 1How you sleep next to your partner can indicate how you feel about each other Even when you're asleep, your body language communicates messages that you might be unable or unwilling to communicate verbally, experts told the team at Little Things. Some positions even indicate the opposite of what you'd assume: curling up close together doesn't always reflect a healthy romance, while scooting to separate edges of the bed doesn't spell divorce. A common position for cuddling, the spoon position isn't a common one during sleep, the experts said – a 2012 study by Dr Corrine Sweet indicates only 18 percent of people sleep while spooning. But if you do fall asleep in a spoon position, you probably have a good balance of intimacy and excitement in your relationship, one expert suggested. READ MORE ABOUT...

    Media personality and OnlyFans star Mia Khalifa believes being a soldier is worse than being a sex worker. During a recent appearance on the hit Showtime show, Ziwe, Khalifa was asked about her thoughts on sex work versus actors and what the difference was between the two. Host Ziwe Fumudoh asked, “So we have OnlyFans and then we have like the sex work industry, and then we have like actors. Is there a difference between these industries or are we all fundamentally selling our body in some way?” “Honestly, I think that selling your body, like if we’re going by that definition, being in the Army is worse than being on OnlyFans,” Khalifa replied. “Wow,” uttered Fumudoh. “You’re selling your body to the government,” Khalifa added. @ziwe i asked mia khalifa if there is a difference between the s3x w0rk industry and hollywood #fyp #miakhalifa #ziwe ♬ selling your body mia khalifa – ziwe In the same interview with Fumudoh, Khalifa revealed that she makes over $10,000 a day from her website after...

    JK Rowling has backed Macy Gray as the singer faces accusations of 'transphobia' after saying 'changing your body parts doesn't make you a woman'. Ms Gray, 54, took part in a no-holds-barred interview on Piers Morgan Uncensored in which she also said that she doesn't believe that transgender women should be allowed to compete against biological women in sport. But Ms Rowling today lent her support to the singer, tweeting a screengrab of Ms Gray's tweet saying the 'truth hurts' after broadcaster India Willoughby accused the singer of 'killing what's left of her career'. Alongside the picture, the Harry Potter author tweeted: 'Today feels like a good day to ensure I've bought Macy Gray's entire back catalogue'. It comes after Ms Gray said during the interview on Monday: 'Just because you go and change your parts doesn't make you a woman, sorry.'  She acknowledged that people will 'hate me for saying this' but 'I know that for a fact, adding: 'If you want me to call you a "her", I will, because that's what you want but that doesn't make you a...

    What's the first thing you do when you think you need to lose weight? Chances are you start to count the calories in your diet. It's hard not to fall into this counting trap, when the idea of balancing calories eaten versus those burned is still the basis of most diet plans, Government guidance (calories now have to be listed on menus) and even medical professionals' advice when it comes to losing weight. Yet what you probably don't know is that the calorie count listed on the packet, menu, food-tracking app or online somewhere is not as accurate as you've been led to believe. What's the first thing you do when you think you need to lose weight? Chances are you start to count the calories in your diet (File image) It's pretty clear that having a higher body weight is way more complex than simply eating too much and not exercising enough, writes Dr Megan Rossi (pictured) That's because a food's calorie count is typically determined in the laboratory by burning the whole food and extracting every last calorie...
    DRINKING diet and low calorie drinks can be a saviour for many people who are trying to shed the pounds. But what really happens to your body when you drink them and should you incorporate it into your diet? 1 Studies have previously shown that drinking beverages like this with artificial sweeteners can increase your risk of gaining weight. One study, published in the journal Current Atherosclerosis Reports, warned that they may be contributing to type 2 diabetes. Low calorie sweeteners are used in place of sucrose, glucose and fructose and have an intense sweet flavour without the calories. Artificially sweetened beverages (ASB) are also linked with increased risks of death and cardiovascular disease, and strokes and dementia among older people, but it is not clear why. 10 minutes The Renegade Pharmacist states that after just ten minutes of drinking a low calorie drink, your taste buds are tricked and the enamel on your teeth is attacked. The acid attacks your teeth and experts say that this helps chip away at the enamel on the surface. As well as this, artificial...
    WE all hate getting up in the morning, and some of us are even making this worse for ourselves with our morning routines. The experts at Joy Home Remedies have revealed the nine things you may be doing as part of your morning routine that can have a negative impact on your day, leaving you feeling tired before the day’s even really gotten started. 1Follow these tips for the optimal morning routineCredit: YouTube Don't press the snooze button It’s something we’re all guilty of, but according to sleep experts it’s something we should definitely not be doing. By hitting the snooze button and going back to sleep, you can end up starting a sleep cycle that you won’t be able to finish, meaning you may wake up feeling even more tired than if you got up when your alarm first went off. To avoid the desire to hit the snooze button, you could try going to bed a bit earlier to ensure you get a full night’s sleep - you may even wake up before your alarm. READ MORE IN...
    Most North Americans associate a slender physique with health, leading to the belief that weight loss is the optimal way to resolve health issues or avoid disease. Unfortunately, the diet and weight loss industry has done an exceptional job of fueling this narrative, with failure rates approximating 95 percent. This narrative is so prevalent that it has seeped into the medical system. Many experiencing metabolic health concerns like diabetes or heart disease will be told by their doctors to lose weight. Unfortunately, they’re often not explicitly directed on how to do this healthily, but simply to lose weight. This leaves a lot of room for the diet industry to work its magic and profit from well-meaning consumers. However, what is often overlooked is that losing weight will not necessarily eradicate health concerns. I’ve had many clients come to me a few years after losing weight, and they are in a worse place than when they started. That’s because weight loss can be achieved by eating food devoid of nutrients and full of synthetic substances—ultimately doing the stark opposite of...

She is not only a professional athlete, but a filmmaker, actress and writer who lives with her husband Jeremy and their pug Bernini in Los Angeles. Her social media is overflowing with photos of herself sporting colorful outfits from her sponsor, Champion, in scenic places from the mountains of Colorado to the beaches in Greece, each one captioned with a poem she wrote herself. She comes across as bubbly, positive, creative, energetic ... and all of those descriptors are true. Yet Pappas also happens to battle clinical depression.

    A viral video of a man in New York telling abortion rights activists he “owns” their bodies and that he, and others like him, will impregnate people as they wish if Roe v. Wade is overturned, pretty much sums it up for those of us interested in preserving the rights to our own human bodies: This is about control.  Last week, a draft opinion from the Supreme Court was leaked showing that the conservative-dominated high court is now poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, a law that for nearly five decades has empowered women and people who can become pregnant to take their health care—and their future—into their own hands.  The draft leak sparked protests throughout the nation and over Mother’s Day weekend, demonstrations had not abated. This was especially true in New York City, where protesters for and against abortion rights—and reportedly, some alleged members of a white nationalist movement—showed up in large numbers at the Basilica of Old St. Patrick’s Church.  Related story: Supreme Court in disarray: New leaks reveal Roberts’ own preferred Roe reversal Anti-abortion activists have demonstrated at the site before and at a nearby Planned Parenthood.

    Countless thousands of Americans supporting and defending a woman’s right to choose an abortion protesting what is expected to be a Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, after a draft opinion was leaked a week ago. A video posted Saturday appears to show several anti-abortion activists standing on the steps of a New York City church telling people protesting in support of abortion as a constitutional civil right, “You have no choice. Not your choice, not your body, your body is mine.” Captions on the video attribute those remarks to “FDNY,” the New York City Fire Dept., but that has not been confirmed. The leader of the group is wearing what appears to be an FDNY patch on his pullover, and an “America First” cap. America First is the name of the group headed by Nick Fuentes, who has been called a white nationalist and a white supremacist. “Not the church, not the state, the people must decide their fate,” the pro-choice protestors chant in the video, which has gone viral over the weekend. “I am the people,” the...

    THERE are plenty of things that can make your tummy turn – injustice, rollercoasters, public speaking - but your diet shouldn’t be one of them.  Yet health experts believe that's exactly what's happening as many as 86 per cent of Brits have suffered from a digestive complaint over the last year.  2Gut worries? You're not alone, but a diet that resembles your grandparents' could helpCredit: Getty While nervous tummies and anxiety could be to blame, around 10 per cent of Brits suffer with IBS, with many experts believing modern Western diets and the stress of a fast paced lifestyle are to blame.  “Over the last few generations, our eating habits have undergone some dramatic changes,” explains naturopath Louise Westra (louisewestra.com).  “Our daily diets are now almost unrecognisable to those of our grandparents.  “We have always gathered our food but we’ve never had so much choice, convenience or access to food.  “In addition we have entered a whole new era of food with refined and ultra-processed foods being staples in many homes.  “As a result our digestive system is being challenged...
    MSNBC anchor Joy Reid said Monday on her show “The ReidOut” that Republican state legislators and conservative Supreme Court justices were telling American women that their bodies are property of the state “the moment that you get pregnant.” Reid said, “The conservative-dominated Supreme Court is inching closer and closer to telling American people women, your body belongs to the state the moment that you get pregnant. However, that happens even if it is by rape or incest. So, you cannot decide what you decide to do to your body. Republican statehouses across the country are being flooded with restrictive abortion bills.” She continued, “This is a dog that caught the car problem. It was always a great electoral strategy to say that we will end the scourge of abortion until you do it. Because when you do it now, you start to see what happens when it is implemented. It means arresting women, it means putting bounties on them. It means disclosing that when we got abortions, two could collect money on their head. It means a lot of cruelty...

    A SLEEP expert has revealed how your period may be impacting your sleep. The female body goes through a number of changes over a menstrual cycle, including a rollercoaster of hormones. 1Your period can leave you tossing and turning in bed, experts sayCredit: Alamy And this is just one of the reasons why you find it harder to get good quality sleep at certain times of the month.  “The two key hormones during the menstrual cycle are oestrogen and progesterone, which come from the growing egg cell in the ovary,” said Dr Gareth Nye, a lecturer at Chester Medical School who specialises in maternal and foetal health.  Oestrogen and progesterone go up and down in a cyclical fashion every month. They rise during the first half of the cycle to help prepare the uterus for a fertilised egg, and drop in the second half to cause the uterus lining to break down (i.e. your period).

    TURNS out our guts can influence more than just our health. New research claims that a person's personality traits involving mental and physical energy can be related to what's going on in their stomachs. 1A new study find a connection between an individual's gut and their personality traitsCredit: Getty The gut microbiome and gut metabolomic can affect which of four personality traits someone has, as reported by Gut News. According to the study's authors, the four biological moods are mental energy, mental fatigue, physical energy, and physical activity. “These findings provide evidence that the four traits may have unique yet overlapping gut bacteria profiles,” the authors said.

    An Australian nutritionist has highlighted the importance of paying close attention to your cravings, as it can indicate the possibility of deficiencies in the body.  Lee Holmes from Supercharged Food said ongoing cravings are often caused by essential mineral deficiencies, which can lead to health problems over time.    'When it comes to nutrition, one of the greatest obstacles people face is 'the battle of the appetite and cravings',' Lee told FEMAIL.  'Sometimes when you're not giving your body what it needs it can pull out the placards and protest!'   Sydney-based chef and nutritionist Lee Holmes (pictured) from Supercharged Food said when it comes to nutrition, one of the greatest obstacles that people face is what I call 'the battle of the appetite and cravings' If you're craving chocolate, nuts or beans, this could signify a deficiency in magnesium, which is found in pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, peanuts, soy milk and spinach.  Lee suggested reaching for a dark chocolate treat, snacking on almonds or adding beans to your lunch to ensure the craving doesn't persist. She added that deficiencies in zinc,...
    Your immune system is your greatest health asset and does so much more than merely protect you against infection. Research shows that it plays a major role in every single aspect of your mental and physical health. When it's working properly, your immune system will reduce your susceptibility to infection and disease, improve your ability to recover if you do get sick and stave off unwanted inflammation, age-related immune decline and chronic disease. Dr Jenna Macciochi from Hove, East Sussex. She writes: 'The aim is to achieve an immune system that is "just right"' Your immune system is made up of incredible immune cells, cell subtypes, organs and molecules, all of which want to unleash their superpowers to keep you healthy. Like players in a football team, each aspect of the immune system has unique (though sometimes overlapping) roles. If the team is poorly configured or imbalanced, it won't function effectively, resulting in unwanted inflammation, low energy levels and ageing — and leaving you vulnerable to infection, autoimmune conditions (such as psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis) and allergies. Like an athlete,...

    TRYING to keep your stomach "sucked in" and wearing tight jeans can cause real health problems. A pelvic floor expert has revealed the damage you can do by trying to look trim and squeezing your stomach. 1Wearing tight trousers and trying to suck in your stomach can be bad for youCredit: Getty - Contributor It can be done either by trying to keep your belly physically pulled in by tensing your abs, or by forcing yourself into tight waistbands. Both have an effect on your body, and can be far more damaging than just feeling uncomfortable or self-conscious. Stephanie Taylor, a pelvic floor expert at Kegel8, said: "The habit of sucking in your stomach is likely to come from feeling the need to look smaller and have a flat stomach, thanks to decades of fitness trainers and celebrities emphasising the benefits of tight abdominal muscles. "Also known as 'stomach gripping', sucking in involves pulling your belly button inwards and upwards by contracting the top abdominals. "This may seem completely normal given how many women do it, but if you...

    Drinking what most might consider to be a moderate amount of alcohol could be harming your health and mental wellbeing, experts have found. New guidelines released by the Australian Drug and Alcohol Foundation advise both men and women to have no more than 10 standard drinks per week and no more than four standard drinks on any one day. Consuming more than the recommended amount has been linked to myriad health issues including cancer, heart and liver disease, Alzheimer's, weight gain and premature ageing, as well as brain fog, anxiety, and depression. But researchers have warned a standard drink might be less than you think, with bottles of beer and glasses of wine often coming in well over the threshold.

    WEIGHT gain usually occurs when you eat more calories than your body burns through normal everyday activities, sports and exercise. But if you're doing everything you can to lose weight and you aren't seeing any progress, it might not actually be your fault. 1Keeping a healthy weight range can be difficult, but if you're trying to lose weight and struggling it could be down to an underlying health issueCredit: Getty During the coronavirus pandemic many of us became focussed on our weight after Prime Minister Boris Johnson vowed to shift the pounds after he ended up in hospital with the virus - attributing his weight to one reason he had severe symptoms.

But here's the good news: Pandemic proofing your life is easier than you think, and it's not about building a bunker or megadosing on supplements and waiting white-knuckled for the next booster shot. A remarkable suit of armor is already within you. In the midst of a global pandemic, we've all changed. I joke that you've either become a chunk, monk, hunk or drunk. But seriously, what surprised me in my research into how we can prevent serious illness and death -- and prepare for the next globetrotting scourge -- is the key role diets play in our immune system and response to any infection, not just Covid.

    COVID-19 live updates: CDC director stands by decision to overrule panel on boosters Stabbing sparked by dispute over amount of sugar in McDonald’s coffee, NYPD says Movies are not generally meant to be a cardiac event, but it's actually hard sometimes to catch your breath in the midst of the flaming auto-erotic mania that is Titane — the winner of the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival and certainly one of most visceral, if not outright divisive experiences on screen this year.

    A personal trainer has revealed what really happens to your body when you give up carbohydrates, and the positive and negative effects you can expect when you cut them almost completely. Rachael Attard, from Sydney, explained that while a low-carb diet can be beneficial for many body types looking to lose weight, it can also cause some difficult side effects - including headaches, digestive issues and short-term fatigue. Instead of cutting them altogether, Rachael explained that a better approach is to limit your intake of specific carbs and time them around when you're working out so your body uses the energy effectively.

    Clive Rose/Getty Images Swimming can simultaneously workout muscles that multiple strength workouts target. Additionally, every swim stroke is also an effective cardiovascular workout.  A swimming instructor broke down which strokes target each area of the body.  If you're looking to freshen up your workout routine, and even push it to the next level, try swapping your weights and treadmill for the pool.  Business Insider: A daily selection of curated stories Loading Something is loading.

    Let's put aside the dubious assertion that the vaccines are an impervious defense against serious illness, a premise that is being seriously challenged by two Israeli studies showing waning efficacy. Even if the vaccines somehow conveyed long-term benefits against serious illness, we now know we were already lied to about the vaccine's use as a tool for source control. Not only should that give us pause about officials' evidence-free statements about the safety of the shots or their long-term efficacy against serious illness, but it should immediately end the debate over the ability of government to mandate these shots on anyone. Their own position is that there is zero benefit to another human being if the person next to them is vaccinated; that is purely a risk-benefit decision for that person alone. Period. Full stop. Cutting through all the clutter, that was the most important news story to emerge from last week's imbroglio over the virus. Back in December, the CDC stated clearly that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine "was 95.0% effective (95% confidence interval = 90.3%–97.6%) in preventing symptomatic...

    (The Conversation)Getting in shape isn't easy. But after all that hard work, how long do we actually maintain it? Turns out that even the great effort we put into training, taking a bit of time off can mean that we become "unfit" much faster than it took us to actually get in shape.To understand how the body becomes "unfit," we first need to understand how we become fit. The key to becoming fitter -- whether that's improving cardiovascular fitness or muscular strength -- is to exceed "habitual load." This means doing more than our body is used to. The stress that this has on our body makes us adapt and become more tolerant, leading to higher fitness levels.READ MORE: Going back to the gym: how to avoid injuries after lockdownThe time it takes to get fit depends on a number of factors, including fitness levels, age, how hard you work and even environment.

    If you regain weight you've lost, it's not necessarily down to lack of willpower. Getty Weight regain happens because our bodies want to return to their set point weight, according to an obesity doctor. Evidence suggests that each person's set point is a range, and some people's set point weight will naturally be higher than others.  If you mix months of slow weight loss with months of maintenance, that may help to keep weight off, Dr Nick Fuller said. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Regaining weight is not dependent on willpower, but biology, according to a top Australian obesity doctor and researcher.  Dr. Nick Fuller told Insider that the extreme way most people diet makes bodies more inclined to return to their starting weight afterwards. "Dieting and weight loss is seen as a huge stress on the body, and the body works to eliminate that stress by shutting down and resultingly, ensuring you climb back to your starting weight," he said.

    Kylie Jenner said she's working out twice a day to stay in shape. Karwai Tang/Getty Images Kylie Jenner recently shared on social media that she's working out twice a day.  Personal trainers say that for most people, consistency is better than spending hours in the gym.  Too much exercise can also backfire for weight loss and muscle gain, since your body doesn't have time to recover.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Last week, Kylie Jenner revealed on Instagram that she's been logging two workouts a day. The celebrity showed followers a clip of herself on a treadmill around midday, after a previous 7 AM sweat session. Social posts suggest Jenner maintains her figure by keeping up with this intense exercise schedule. However, experts say that for a majority of casual gymgoers, working out twice a day is more likely to lead to burnout and injury than results. You also probably don't need to work out twice a day to meet your fitness goals. Here's what personal trainers recommend instead.  Three to five workouts a week is...
