Skin Care Tip

Don't take the streets to the sheets!

Going to bed every night with a clean face is more important than you might think. Throughout the day your skin is accumulating a lot of dirt and debris from environmental pollutants, along with your own natural oils and sweat. If you go to bed without washing your face, you may start to develop acne as your pores clog. Additionally, other irritation can occur.

The importance of washing your face before bed also has a huge impact on the quality of your skin as it goes into repair mode overnight. That makes nighttime the most effective time for serums and other facial remedies as your skin is already repairing and renewing itself and products will have the best absorption and efficacy. For those of you that wear makeup, this is a step in your night time routine you cannot skip. Leaving makeup on overnight not only clogs your pores but you can cause a lot of irritation and run the risk of eye infection. It's crucial to make sure all makeup is off especially things like mascara that can get embedded under the eyes and affect the corneas. Long term effects from skipping this step at night may accelerate wrinkle development.

Anti-Aging Tip

Weekly masks & your skin will love you!

Our skin naturally has a protective barrier to keep moisture in and foreign substances out, so the skin's ability to maintain hydration is important when it comes to elasticity. With the effects of environmental pollutants, the natural aging process and makeup clogging your pores can all factor into the skin looking dull and becoming wrinkled. Facial masks are a fantastic nutrient delivery system for anti aging heaven.

Their thickness combined with the extended application time to the face and warmth generated under the mask opens pores for better penetration of nutrients in the products. Since all masks have some kind of cleansing agent in them, this rids the skin of dirt, debris, and dead skin cells and aids in achieving a more youthful revitalized skin. Face masks can also help blood circulation, especially those with peeling ingredients. In addition, the scrubbing off of a dry mask stimulates and expands blood vessels giving the skin the most nourishment.

These are some ingredients you should look for in a anti-aging masks and why:

  1. Antioxidants - which nourish and strengthen skin. Also protect against free radicals and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  2. Toners - astringent ingredients like chamomile, rose water and witch hazel help tighten pores for more subtle looking skin
  3. Green tea - reduce redness and fight free radicals and other environmental pollutants that assist in aging
  4. Omega-3s - fatty acids provide nourishment and help retain a plump and youthful appearance
  5. AHA's - these compounds help slough off dead skin cells so new, brighter, replenished looking skin can shine through.

Plastic Surgery Tip

Benefits of Otoplasty Surgery

Prominent Ear Surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of protruding ears. For the most part, the operation is done on children between the ages of 5 and 14. Ears are almost fully grown by age four, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure. Ear surgery on adults is also possible, and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient. In newborns, the maternal estrogens circulating thru their blood makes correction with splinting possible. Hopefully this information will be helpful in your quest to getting the best procedure with the best results you can achieve.
