July Savings

Skin Care Tip:

Cover Up!

Summertime is the most important season to protect your skin. Using the right sun protection is key to preventing sun damage and the possibility of skin cancer. Other than using sunscreen, you should also try to avoid being in the sun for long periods of time. Everyone loves to get their summer glow but it is important to your health that you are smart about exposing your skin to the harsh UV rays of the sun. During the heat of summer your skin becomes more oily needing a lighter moisturizer if any. If your daily routine includes using a moisturizer, make sure you are not over applying or using a heavy formula.

Another area that is often forgotten is your lips. With the change of seasons, your lips need to be moisturized as well. You can use a lip balm that has SPF in it to avoid sunburn. Although 15 minutes spent in the sun daily is healthy, any additional exposure could cause long term damage. Make sure you take all the proper precautions to protect yourself from the effects of summer.

Anti-Aging Tip:

Drink Water!

With high temperatures and summer activities, it is easy to become dehydrated. Drinking water is crucial to your health and looking as young as you feel. Water naturally purifies our bodies inside and out helping our bodies to function properly and making us feel healthier and more energetic. Drinking an adequate amount of water daily will help your skin look healthy and vibrant. After all, our bodies consist of 60% water making water vital to our health and wellbeing. During summer we lose a lot of our body’s water making it extremely important t keep hydrating our bodies. In order to enjoy summer fun you have to be sure to reward your body with plenty of water!

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Be Confident!

Everyone has parts of their body that they wish they could change. While the usual remedy is exercise, having an embarrassing mole removed can be all you need to boost your confidence. In some cases it is necessary to have them removed if they are suspicious in shape or color, other times it is for personal reasons. Mole removal has become extremely common in the world of plastic surgery. In a lot of cases, patients are having moles removed in areas that may be exposed more during the summer or because they have become bothersome. It is a very simple procedure that your doctor can do in office within 5-30 minutes. If you have a mole that prevents you from participating in certain activities or wearing the clothing you want, mole removal could be the quick fix to bring up your self esteem and enjoy your summer!
