7 Ways to Regrow Thinning Hair, According to Dermatologists

Maybe at first you notice extra hair going down the drain in the shower or more strands than usual left behind on your hairbrush. While you might feel like the only woman facing this, the surprising truth is female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is a lot more common than you think. In fact, half of all women will suffer hair loss at some point in their lives, and 40% will experience FPHL by the age of about 40. And there's a good chance those stats are off, says Joshua Zeichner, MD, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, because women are often too embarrassed to talk about it.

A common hair loss myth is that women lose their hair for the same reasons as men. “But FPHL does not have the same pattern as male pattern hair loss,” says Francesca J. Fusco, MD, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. “It tends to be diffuse or frontal or temporal, and it can be inherited through female relatives.” While male pattern hair loss has been much more researched than women’s, we do know that it’s at least in part genetic and related to the androgen hormones, mainly dihydrotestosterone (DHT). In other words, there are several causes of hair loss besides genes, including stress, diet, and other lifestyle factors.

While we can’t control our genes, we can control our lifestyle. Making these expert-recommended changes may help your thinning hair regrow.

Stress less

“Significant psychosocial stresses can result in hair loss,” explains Dr. Zeichner. In a phenomenon called telogen effluvium, stress shocks hairs to move into the "resting" phase, in which they all fall out at once. "This is the same type of condition that women typically experience after they give birth or after a major surgical procedure," Dr. Zeichner explains. "These patients typically develop rapid thinning of the hair along the temples.” Finding stress management techniques is key, whether it’s meditation, yoga, hitting the gym, or adopting a mantra.

Watch what you eat

“Protein is critical to healthy hair,” Dr. Fusco says. “Lean meat, fish, poultry and beans are all great sources. Iron is also important; low iron can lead to anemia, which can lead to increased hair shedding. The great news is that with proper diet and supplementation, this type of hair loss is reversible.” Deficiencies in biotin and zinc are also clearly associated with hair loss, and magnesium is necessary for healthy hair growth.

Try a supplement

Taking a natural vitamin supplement that is designed to boost hair growth can help, and even multivitamins can give your hair a boost, says Dr. Zeichner. The two most popular hair supplements on the market that have been evaluated and shown to help promote healthy hair are Nutrafol ($88; amazon.com) and Viviscal ($130 for 180 tablets; amazon…

The 3 Keys to Healthy Aging After 40, According to Cameron Diaz

– health.com

"Around my 40th birthday, I started thinking about what it means to age," Cameron Diaz writes in the introduction to her latest work, The Longevity Book ($28; amazon.com). Inspired to learn more about how the passage of time affects our bodies, she began traveling the country to consult with top medical experts on the subject. What she learned? It's the simple things in life that have the greatest effects as we grow older: "Eating nutritious foods, moving often, and getting enough rest are the keys to healthy aging," she concludes. In the excerpt below, Diaz describes her ideal formula for a "most perfect" day.

I wake up rested from a night of sleep and dreams. The first thing I do is make my bed, smoothing the covers down with purpose, because this is one of the rituals that, for me, marks the beginning of a bright new day. After I brush my teeth, I'll drink a liter of water, and then I'll meditate for 20 minutes, because it relaxes my body and brain, putting me in a calm, energetic state. Then it's time for food, some protein and some carbs and some fat—perhaps a piece of avocado toast or a bowl of savory oatmeal. After that, I work out. This whole routine takes about an hour and 15 minutes from start to finish, and the balance of its components—rest, nutrition, and movement—is what I have found to be the perfect formula for getting me energized, excited, and ready for the day ahead.

Throughout my day, I try to be conscious of my food intake and my movement. How I feel is a good indicator of whether or not I've given myself adequate rest, nutrition, and activity. If I'm active without getting enough food, I'll feel depleted. If I eat too much and move too little, my stomach will hurt or I will feel slow and weighted down. If I move throughout the day, and I fuel that movement with consistent healthy snacks, my energy stays up.

I eat dinner on the earlier side, because I don't like to go to sleep with a full stomach. In the evening it is time to reverse that energy flow and start to wind down. So I avoid heavy foods before bedtime. I make sure my room is nice and dark. I keep all those electronics and their blinking blue and green and red lights out of my sleeping space. I create the best setting for rest I can give myself, so that I'll have energy for the next day. And in the morning, I wake up, and the process begins again.

Of course this perfect day is imaginary, because no day is perfect. But any day that I can implement some version of this formula is a better day than the ones I can't. If I don't sleep well, if I miss breakfast or eat something that looked rich and delicious on a menu but turns out to be tooooo rich and delicious, if I miss my workout because I have a stack of meetings that seem more pressing at the moment—well, I suffer for it, just as we all suffer for choosing not to take care of ourselves…

The Exact Skincare Products Victoria Beckham Uses Every Day for Glowing Skin

– health.com

She's a fashion and beauty icon, retired member of the Spice Girls, wife to soccer hunk David Beckham, and is known for her serious smirk and stylish lob. What we really want to know, though, is how Victoria Beckham always has such a dewy complexion, whether she's attending an awards show or running errands with her kids like any other mum.

Sadly, Beckham's radiant glow isn't thanks to a cold splash of water or cheap drugstore products. Australian celebrity facialist Melanie Grant just revealed a full breakdown of Beckham's morning and nighttime skincare routine on Instagram, including the exact products she uses. Unsurprisingly, many of her picks are on the pricey side. The good news? A few of Beckham's go-tos are under $50 and can be scooped up online.

In the morning, Beckham washes her face with CosMedix Purity Solution ($35; dermstore.com), a cleansing oil packed with olive, moringa, kukui, and argan oils to gently break down dirt, excess oil, and makeup. Next, she applies iS Clinical Pro-Heal Serum ($148; amazon.com), a powerful formula with vitamin C, olive leaf extract, and vitamins E and A to reduce inflammation and prevent breakouts (Beckham has been very open about her struggle with acne in the past).

Another antioxidant serum she loves is SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF ($166; dermstore.com), a blend of pure vitamin C and ferulic acid to neutralize free radicals, prevent aging, and improve discoloration. If Beckham's pick is too expensive, though, we love these more affordable antioxidant serums: Sunday Riley Juno Antioxidant + Superfood Face Oil ($72; sephora.com) and Cosmetic Skin Solutions LLC Phloretin Serum ($40; amazon.com), both of which help to protect skin from free radicals and slow down signs of aging.

After her antioxidant serum, Beckham tackles dark circles and undereye puffiness with CosMedix Eye Genius ($70; dermstore.com). She then applies Augustinus Bader The Cream ($160; neimanmarcus.com), a light moisturizer, and layers SPF 50 over her face as a finishing touch. Unfortunately, you won't be able to get your hands on Beckham's sunscreen, as she uses a customized formula—but some of our favorites with similar coverage are Neutrogena, EltaMD, and Coola.

At night, Beckham double cleanses, first using the same CosMedix Purity Solution from her morning routine, then following up with CosMedix Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser ($26; walmart.com), which contains L-Lactic acid to exfoliate and de-clog pores. She then applies Biologique Recherche P50 lotion and CosMedix Elite Serum 24 ($121; walmart…
