A new study examines dermal injections and their impact on skin aging.
Published Researchers discover potential microbiome links to skin aging (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Recent findings have identified a potential new link to signs of skin aging -- the skin microbiome, the collection of microorganisms that inhabits our skin.
Published A more eco-friendly facial sheet mask that moisturizes, even though it's packaged dry (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Starting a new year, many people pledge to enact self-care routines that improve their appearance. And facial sheet masks soaked in skin care ingredients provide an easy way to do this. However, these wet masks and their waterproof packaging often contain plastics and preservatives. Now, a study reports a dry-packaged hydrating facial mask that is made of biobased and sustainable materials.
Published Study on extremely preterm infants provides important healthcare knowledge (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Infants born extremely prematurely need to get enrichment as an addition to breast milk. But does it make any difference whether the enrichment is made from breast milk or cow's milk when it comes to the risk of severe complications in children?
Published Breastfeeding alters infant gut in ways that boost brain development, may improve test scores (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Breastfeeding, even partially alongside formula feeding, changes the chemical makeup -- or metabolome -- of an infant's gut in ways that positively influence brain development and may boost test scores years later, suggests new research.
Published Mothers need more 'exclusive breastfeeding' support (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life is proven to protect both mother and child health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), between 2015 and 2021, 48% of mothers exclusively breastfed, meaning that their babies were not given any other food or liquids. However, this figure is based on data collected from surveys which report what a child was given in the previous 24 hours. A research team has found that this '24-hour recall' method overestimates exclusive breastfeeding by about six times compared to a 'since-birth recall' method.
Published How pre- and postnatal B-12 vitamins improve breast milk vitamin B-12 levels, which supports infant brain development (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
According to a new study B-12 vitamins increase the presence of the micronutrient in mothers' breast milk, which is especially helpful in countries where it can be difficult to eat what is needed for the body to produce B-12 naturally.
Published Adding complex component of milk to infant formula confers long-term cognitive benefits for bottle-fed babies (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research has shown how a complex component of milk that can be added to infant formula has been shown to confer long-term cognitive benefits, including measures of intelligence and executive function in children.
Published Breastfeeding is associated with a 33% reduction in first-year post-perinatal infant mortality (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Among nearly 10 million US infants born between 2016 and 2018, breastfed babies were 33% less likely to die during the post-perinatal period (day 7-364) than infants who were not breastfed, reports a new study. The findings build on previous US research with smaller datasets, which documented the association between the initiation of breastfeeding and the reduction of post-perinatal infant mortality by a range of 19% to 26%.
Published Why does skin get 'leathery' after too much sun? Bioengineers examine cellular breakdown (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A study explores how ultraviolet radiation can alter the microstructure of human skin. Particularly affected is collagen, the fibrous protein that binds together tissue, tendon, cartilage and bone throughout our bodies.
Published Each mom passes unique set of breast milk antibodies to baby (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Breast milk from each individual contains a unique assemblage of antibodies that are surprisingly stable throughout lactation and across pregnancies, according to a new study.
Published Unsafe feeding methods spiked during infant formula shortage (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A survey finds nearly half of parents who rely on formula for their babies resorted to potentially harmful feeding methods during the infant formula shortage.
Published Dads are key in supporting breastfeeding, safe infant sleep (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Fathers can make a huge difference in whether an infant is breastfed and placed to sleep safely, according to a recent survey of new fathers.
Published Boosting the body's anti-viral immune response may eliminate aging cells (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Aging cells express a protein that is produced by human cytomegalovirus and is targeted by certain immune cells in the body. Harnessing the immune response to this protein could have multiple health benefits during aging.
Published Scientists see anti-aging potential in an invasive weed (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The fruit of the cocklebur plant, which grows worldwide and is often considered a noxious weed, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory components that could make it useful as a skin protectant, according to new research.
Published Beneficial bacteria in the infant gut uses nitrogen from breast milk to support baby's health (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A nutrition scientist who has spent his career studying breast milk has demonstrated how beneficial microbes in the gut of infants use nitrogen from human milk to support pediatric nutrition and development.
Published 3D-printed scaffold could improve breast reconstruction results (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Investigators have developed a technique to help surgeons reconstruct more natural-looking nipples for patients who have undergone breast reconstruction after mastectomy to treat breast cancer.
Published Simple laser treatments may help prevent nonmelanoma skin cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In a study of patients with a history of facial keratinocyte carcinoma, 20.9% of those treated with nonablative fractional lasers experienced a subsequent keratinocyte carcinoma, compared with 40.4% of patients who did not receive laser treatment.
Published Early tastings shorten breastfeeding (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The earlier infants begin to taste small samples of solid food, the earlier they eat more food and stop breastfeeding. This is shown in a new study, in which the mothers of 1,251 infants from all over Sweden participated. Almost half of the infants received tastings at the age of four months.
Published Scars mended using transplanted hair follicles (via sciencedaily.com)
Researchers have found that hair follicle transplants can promote scar rejuvenation by altering their architecture and genetic makeup.
