Skin Care Tip:

The beauty benefits of keeping it toned!

Toning helps keep skin clear and firm. Using a regular toner helps “tone” your skin (just like your muscles) and makes your skin tighter, while helping maintain it’s youthfulness and elasticity. Because men are outside more often than women, environmental debris and pollutants are even more of a factor to their skin's health. Thus, toning for men should not be forgotten! As your skin gets older, it usully needs to work harder to maintain its pliability and shape. Skin toners with glycolic or alpha hydroxy acids work the best for toning the face. These acids can definitely diminsh pore size while also helping avoid ingrown hairs. Remember to look for a product that is not photosensitive (sensitive to light).

Anti-Aging Tip:

Variations in rate of aging!

Like growth spurts, it is very natural to have aging spurts when there are periods of time when you seems to age more quickly. Some aspects of aging can be slowed though by taking good care of your body. One of the most obvious signs of aging is the aging changes that occur in your skin. Skin aging is mainly caused by sun exposure and the harsh environmental elements you are exposed to every day. Our skin is an organ, just like the heart, liver and kidneys. Our skin acts like a barrier from the harsh environmental elements. The skin can be easily damaged by sunlight, lack of sleep, a poor diet, smoking and free radicals if not cared for properly. So can the rest of your body!

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Chicago Butt Lift

Lots of people are interested nowadays in getting an excisional back lipectomy or butt lift. We always get questions about whether or not the procedure is necessary and effective. Surgical body lifting and rejuvenation is a very common procedure and very safe if performed by an accredited physician and in an accredited facility. Think of a butt lift as doing to the back what a tummy tuck does to the front.
