Does Moisture Matter?

Have you ever paid attention to how your skin changes as the seasons change?

If you're like most people, you've probably noticed that your skin becomes drier and flakier as the weather gets cooler. Cold air, dry heat, low humidity, and winter winds may all severely dehydrate your skin. Your skin may appear duller than usual as a result of all of these factors. Not just your face, but also your hands, feet, and other vulnerable regions should be protected. Even when the temperatures drop and there's no way to avoid the dry, harsh winter, there are things you can do to keep your skin looking healthy. Washing your face, hands or body removes your skin's natural oils. It is critical to update these oils since they assist to seal in moisture. That's why, especially in the winter, it's important to use a moisturizer every single time. Also, even in the winter, UV rays can cause damage to your skin's moisture barrier, which is essential for skin health and hydration. After using a moisturizer in the morning, don't forget to apply a layer of sunscreen. Inadequate hydration can alter the look of your skin and make it more prone to drying out. You should drink plenty of water and eat foods high in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids in addition to remain well hydrated.

So to recap, 3 Vital Steps to Retain The Moisture:

  1. Moisturize Day & Night
  2. Apply Sunscreen
  3. Stay Hydrated.

Navigating The Winter Blues!

Do the cold, dreary winter days make you want to cuddle up under the blankets and remain there till the sun shines again?

You're not the only one who feels this way. As the days grow shorter and the months become colder, some people are anticipating an unwanted Christmas stumbling block: seasonal depression. Here are a couple suggestions for overcoming the winter blues. A great way to combat seasonal depression is exercising! Dress warmly and go for a stroll, a swim indoors, or a workout at the gym. In the treatment of mild-to-moderate depression, exercise can be as effective as antidepressants (drugs that regulate a person's mood). Maintaining a healthy diet can also play a role in the way you feel inside and out. Complex carbs, such as whole grains, can help you stay energized all year. Broccoli, kale, and carrots are examples of deep green or orange fruits and vegetables that contain elements that improve mood and overall health. Nurturing your spirit and stimulating your senses are also effective in fighting off the winter blues. Finding daily healthy habits such as reading a book, writing in a journal to organize your thoughts, painting your home a bright color — or even your nails — might help some individuals feel better. Essential oils such as lavender or peppermint can also enhance your sense of well-being. There are many choices...

Plastic Surgery Tip

Injectable Are Still Hot!

Many individuals say that one of the most aggravating aspects of growing older is how our faces go through some of the most noticeable transformations. Our sensitive skin has been subjected to a lot of damage over the years, from sun exposure and pollution to the many cosmetics we use. Furthermore, our bodies' natural synthesis of collagen and elastin (two components that keep our skin smooth and supple) starts to decline. As our skin dries up, fine lines and wrinkles can appear. Our skin may also sag, resulting in drooping brows, bags under our eyes, and jowls around the chin. Looking as old as we feel, or even older in certain situations, can be detrimental to our confidence and self-esteem.

While certain indications of aging can be concealed with cosmetics, others are unavoidable. Injectables are are injected beneath the skin with the goal of reducing the symptoms of aging and making patients appear more radiant and youthful. Fortunately, injectables provide a non-surgical alternative to going under the knife. They do you have some limitations and patients need to be realistic though. There are a number of other advantages to using injectables besides giving the patient a younger appearance. Injectables are a quick therapy that includes injecting a fluid under your skin. Injectables require minimal preparation and recovery time, and in most cases, the results are visible almost immediately.
