Skin Care Tip:

Use Hand Repair Lotion!

The skin on your hands is delicate and fragile.  How many times a day do you wash your hands?  Your hands are exposed to many stressors each and every day including the sun, pollution, hand-washing trauma... It is wise to invest in a hand repair lotion  These specialized creams treat the hand area with rich moisturizers. The best hand moisturizers are the physician-strength ones and neaclear and La Roche Posay seem to be the most popular, best tolerated and most effective.   Use one at least twice daily and especially during the dry winter months. 

Hand Repair Lotion is an essential part of an effective skin care regimen.

Anti-Aging Tip:


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 focus again on the second one.  Basically we are going to talk about stress again!

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 relaxation therapy.  There are many venues (stress release, biofeedback, yoga etc) but the process involves relaxing your muscles, decreasing your heart rate and blood pressure...  Try it and I think you will notice the difference right away.

Just relax!  It is surely one of the best and cheapest ways to improve your health and well being available today!
