Who stole the water in your body?
Modern people are not fluent!
In the past, we used to use “watery” to describe the charming eyes, like to use the “water spirit” to compare the delicate appearance of women. But now, these adjectives seem to be away from us.
Dry eyes, dry mouth, dry skin and other problems have been entangled in the country.
In the United States, there are tens of thousands of people who have been eroded by dry mouth, and even have anti-mouth dry toothpaste and mouthwash.
Water accounts for about 70% of the body’s weight and is common knowledge for many people.
So, what exactly is taking away the “moisture” in the body, making us less and less fluent?
The four major performances of water shortage are too dry!
Both ends are peeling.
The 28-year-old Xiaoyu works on a website. She is at least a few hours a day facing the computer. She often hears her refuse, and the high-end skin care products have bought too much, but it still doesn’t work.
In fact, as long as you pay attention, you can find that many people are tortured by “dry”
The “Life Times” reporter interview found that the most prominent performance is the following: dry eyes.
“Previous dry eye syndrome occurred mostly among middle-aged women over the age of 50, but now more and more young people and even children are beginning to get entangled.
Professor Li Ying, deputy head of the Orthokeratology Group of the Chinese Medical Association Ophthalmology Branch, and the chief physician of the Department of Ophthalmology, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, said that about half of the people who use computers every day will feel dry, while those with dry eye syndrome willIt accounts for about 10% of the ophthalmology clinics of large general hospitals, and has an increasing trend year by year.
Too many people are troubled by problems such as dry eyes, eyelids, and reduced tears.
Dry nose and mouth, dry skin.
Dry mouth is a symptom caused by a lack of oral saliva.
About 30% – 50% of middle-aged and elderly people have different levels of obesity.
A lot of water in our body is “locked” in the skin.
Since the 1970s, scientists have reported an increase in the frequency of dry skin problems worldwide.
According to a 2007 survey, 70% of women in winter believe that their skin is very dry, and this figure is still as high as 34% in summer.
In the clinical skin stratum corneum thickness test, the normal skin of the epidermis should be 15%-25%, but today the urban female skin skin volume is less than 10%, stepping into the “dry” skin.
According to a survey released by Xinhua Daily, nearly 20% of the elderly over the age of 60 were secretly secreted.
A survey conducted by the newspaper in August last year also showed that there were 40.
34% of people are often secretly invaded by constipation, only 10.
18% have never encountered constipation problems.
Zhang Shengsheng, director of the Department of Gastroenterology, Beijing Chinese Medicine Hospital affiliated to Capital Medical University, said that there are many reasons for constipation. Water shortage is indeed one of the reasons that cannot be ignored, and this is something that everyone can change.
Who stole the water in your body?
So, what is the reason for modern people to become more and more “dry”?
In the opinion of experts, many factors from the outside to the inside make it difficult for us to escape the “dry” leakage.
The big environment is also “lack of water.”
“The first thing that has happened is that the natural environment has changed dramatically.
Zhang Shengsheng told the Life Times reporter that global warming has become a climate problem that causes headaches for everyone around the world. There are a lot of pollutants in the air we breathe every day, and the urban green area is not enough, which leads to the environment we live in.Reduced humidity and reduced moisture.
In addition, modern people have long been working in an air-conditioned environment, and they do not think that sports and other factors cannot be ignored.
Bad living habits.
The problem of dry eyes is related to the use of excessive eyes and improper eye habits.
Li Ying said that electronic devices such as computers and televisions cover a lot of time for modern people, which directly leads to the high incidence of living dry eye syndrome.
Dry mouth and constipation are inseparable from the high-heat and high-fat diet that everyone is keen on. Excessive cleaning and heavy use of cosmetics.
Yang Shuxia, deputy director of the Department of Dermatology, Peking University First Hospital, said that there are many reasons for dry skin, but excessive cleaning, a large number of cosmetics is an important reason.
The in vivo function of moisture on skin health. If you are too clean, wash too hard, or use irritating, decontaminating cleaning products, the “natural moisturizing factor” contained in the stratum corneum of the skin surface will be reduced.The grease film on the surface of the skin and the polar structure in the stratum corneum are excessively removed.
Cosmetics such as foundations (especially make-up products) often contain too much condensed components in order to maintain the desired effect, which also leads to the loss of moisture.
”It is recognized that dryness may also be associated with certain diseases, the most common one being Sjogren’s syndrome.
Zhang Xuewu, a professor at the Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, Peking University People’s Hospital, told the Life Times reporter that there were about 63.
8% of patients with Sjogren’s syndrome were not diagnosed in time.
The incidence of the disease in chronic is about zero.
77%, high in the middle-aged and old people aged 40-60, including male to female ratio of 1:9.
If the patient has obvious dry eyes, dry mouth, frequent swelling and pain of the parotid gland, multiple caries and block resection of the teeth, arthritis and lung, liver and other organ damage, you must be vigilant and go to the hospital in time.
In addition, diabetes, liver disease, hypothyroidism, uremia and other diseases, or certain drugs such as retinoids, lithium, etc. may also cause drying problems.
A few tricks to help you retain water from the perspective of Chinese medicine, the body fluid is yin, if the body fluid is too small, it will lead to imbalance of yin and yang, which will lead to a variety of health problems; and dry and dry skin can not cause itching may cause itching;Constipation can lead to colon cancer, induced severe consequences such as myocardial infarction . the harm of physical water shortage can not be underestimated, experts put forward the following suggestions to help everyone retain moisture.
Drink at least 1000 ml of water a day.
Preventing dryness and drinking water is very important.
For a normal person, be sure to drink 1000 ml of water a day.
From a diet perspective, everyone must reject spicy, high-oil, high-fat foods, and eat more fruits and vegetables such as celery, clams, lilies, apples, pears, etc.
The sesame oil and sesame seeds are also very good.
The old man took a bath once or twice a week.
The spring, autumn and winter in the north are over-dried. As long as the environment you are in is not particularly dirty, the body is relatively clean. The elderly person can take a bath once or two weeks, and the water temperature should be controlled at 38.
Younger, you can wash it once or twice a week, and you don’t have to take a bath or use cleaning products such as shower gel every time.
People in the southern part of the hot weather should pay special attention to not using the shower gel excessively.
After cleaning, you should also use moisturizing products to help your skin retain moisture.
It is very important to protect the “spleen”.
From the perspective of Chinese medicine, “spleen” is the foundation of the day after tomorrow. It is the main organ for the body to absorb nutrients. These nutrients are the raw materials for anger, blood and body fluids.Increase.
Zhang Shengsheng said that over-thinking and overwork are the “big enemies” of the spleen. Therefore, we must maintain a calm, optimistic good attitude and pay attention to work and rest.
Modern people stay in the office for too long. They should exercise at least twice a week, and should live regularly to ensure adequate sleep.
In order to alleviate and prevent dry eyes, Li Ying is prominent. Every 30-45 minutes, he should rest for 5 minutes, taking the initiative to look far and near.
Alkaline eye drops should be used with caution when using preservatives. Do not use excessively irritating eye drops.
In addition, the root of the eyelashes is an open space with a large opening, which is easy to “stain dirt”. The eye drops can be carefully scrubbed on the cotton ball, which is good for the secretion of oil and tears.
