Skin Care Tip:

Use Lip Repair Cream!

The lips are very delicate.  Lips skin is specialized and has a specific role and function for humans. Most people forget about their lips except for the occasional lip balm or moisturizer.  The lips can get dry or sunburned.  It is wise to invest in a lip repair cream - something that can help moisturize them as well as protect them from the sun.  Some creams even claim to minimize aging and temporarily rejuvenate fine lip lines.  The best lip repair creams are the physician-strength ones and neaclear and La Roche Posay seem to be the most popular and best tolerated as well as most effective.  Use one for at least 2-3 months and be consistent.  It is rare to notice a difference if a lip repair cream is only used sparingly or for less than a month.

Lip Repair Cream is an essential part of an effective skin care regimen.

Anti-Aging Tip:

Do nothing for 15 minutes a day!

The health and wellbeing of humans is an important topic.  Numerous studies continue to define disease pathology.  Regardless of the disease we are talking about, most doctors and researchers agree that there are 3 things that determine every pathologic process that occurs in humans - genetics, the psychological status of the person and the social environment they are placed in.  In this ezine we will start with the second one.  Basically we are going to talk about stress!

Stress is truly one of the worst things that can happen to a person and there is no doubt that many of the serious diseases plaguing the civilized world today can be prevented or even reversed through a reduction in stress levels.  Many studies support the positive effects of meditating or doing nothing but relaxing for 15 minutes a day.  Sounds simple, doesn't it?  It really is.  Try it and I think you will notice the difference right away.

Doing nothing for 15 minutes a day is surely one of the best and cheapest ways to improve your health and well being available today!

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Lots of people are interested in mole removal. We always get questions about whether or not the procedure is necessary, scarring and different treatment options. Mole removal is a very popular procedure and very safe if performed by an accredited physician.  The different options include surgical removal, shaving, freezing, burning (cauterizing), and laser removal (destructive and nondestructive).  Please check out the wealth of information on our site by clicking here.  To see before and after patient pictures, please click here. Make sure you chose a board certified plastic surgeon.  A call to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or ASPS at 1-888-4-PLASTIC (ie. 1-888-475-2784) can tell you which doctors are legitimate plastic surgeons with outstanding qualifications.  You can also visit the ASPS web site at The ASPS is the only one of the 24 boards approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties that certifies physicians in plastic surgery of the face and all areas of the body.
