Berries like raspberries and strawberries will help to achieve a glow this party season, says an expert.

“Exposure to pollution, tobacco and toxins, consumed in excess at this time of year, leaves us vulnerable to free radical attack. Berries are powerhouses for cell protection and the perfect snack for skin health,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Caroline Hitchcock, one of Britain’s leading facialists, as saying.

They contain manganese, which has the ability to convert toxins within the skin cells into oxygen, reducing skin damage.

You can even prepare a face mask with the fruity ingredient. A ready to glow mask will have a hydrating effect on the skin and also brighten the face. Just follow these three steps:

– Mash four strawberries, half an avocado, a little bit of lemon juice in a bowl and make a smooth paste.

Heavy cigarette smokers can reduce their risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) by 39 per cent within five years if they quit, researchers said.

It takes at least five to 10 years and perhaps up to 25 years after quitting, for CVD risk to become as low as that of a person who has never smoked, according to the study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

“The cardiovascular system begins to heal relatively quickly after quitting smoking, even for people who have smoked heavily over decades,” said Hilary Tindle, Founding Director of the Vanderbilt Center for Tobacco Addiction and Lifestyle (ViTAL).

The study used prospective data from 1954 through 2014 from 8,770 participants to determine the effect of lifetime smoking and smoking cessation on the risk of CVD, which includes myocardial infarction, stroke, CVD death and heart failure.

“Our team documented what happens to CVD risk after quitting smoking relative to people who continued to smoke and to those who never smoked,” said study lead author Meredith Duncan from Vanderbilt University. (IANS)
