Skin Care Tip:

Ditch that heavy moisturizer

Now that you are about to ditch your winter coat and start craving salad instead of soup do not leave your skin care routine behind. Your face will be less dry in the summer so ditch those heavy winter moisturizers too! You can lighten up your look by replacing your heavy moisturizer with a lightweight oil free hydrator and switching from a thick foundation to an oil free mineral tinted moisturizer. Your skins hydration level naturally increases in summer from sweat and oil production as well as fact that the humidity helps your skin retain more moisture than in cold weather.

Comfort is one reason to switch your skin care regimen, but healthy-looking skin is another key factor. Heavy emulsified moisturizers in the summer can cause extra sweat and bacteria to sit on the surface of the skin. The added sweat, oil and bacteria can result in clogged pores and excess oiliness. So to avoid bothersome breakouts and achieve that fresh dewy summer look, trade in your heavy creams and foundations and opt for lightweight skin care this summer!

Anti-Aging Tip:

Age Gracefully with Exercise

Everyone knows that exercise can help you lose weight, tone up, and look great. Something you may not know is that exercise also plays a role in slowing down the aging process. As we are all living longer, it has never been more important to exercise into our later years in order to maintain strength and endurance. In order to reap the anti-aging benefits of exercise, one does not have to run five miles a day, or have a vigorous work out regimen. For an older person who has not exercised much in his or her life, taking 30 minute walks or gardening can provide great health benefits and prolong the quality of life. As we age aerobic activity is not enough in order to achieve optimal results because aerobic exercise alone does not help to support our muscles or weight. Not only does strength training decreases the chances of developing arthritis or joint problems but it also is crucial because it increases balance, strength, and improves posture. All of these are important factors in keeping your body as young as it can be so get to the gym and start working on a younger body today..

In The News

Dr. Speron and his clinical staff have recently reviewed and recommend the following articles:

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Butt Lift

Women and men who have loose upper buttock skin and fat that is concentrated in the back and upper buttock can benefit from excisional back lipectomy (butt lift). These traits are sometimes inherited. In other instances, substantial weight loss may cause the back and upper buttock skin to become flaccid. A butt lift also can tighten muscles that have been separated and weakened by pregnancy. The procedure may somewhat improve the appearance of stretch marks, especially those located in the lower back.
