Skin Care Tip:

Our Top 5 Skincare Tips!

1) Use skincare products that are organic and all natural. This will reduce your chances of experiencing negative side effects from toxins and chemicals that are present in many skin care products. With truly organic products, there is a much lower risk of adverse or allergic reactions.

2) Adopt a healthy diet and exercise routine. Avoid eating lots of junk food and eat more natural foods that are rich in antioxidants and minerals like fruit, vegetable, seafood and nuts. Stay away from saturated fats like butter especially with all the artificial substitutes out there. Eat a healthy amount of unsaturated fats such of those found in olive oil, eggs and nuts. Exercise also gets the blood flowing and improves oxygen efficiency.

3) Do not smoke. Smoking is bad for your skin.

4) Drink Plenty of Water. Dehydration is more common than people think. You must keep your skin well hydrated if you want it to be healthy. Try to drink 8 glasses of water a day.

5) Avoid the sun and use sun block. Sun damage is all too frequent and can contribute to accelerate skin aging

A few simple tips to help you out...

Anti-Aging Tip:

Stand Tall

Poor posture sabotages your figure and your health. It can make you look older, unhappy and tired. It is the first step toward dowager’s hump, double chin, pot belly and sway back. And that’s just on the outside! Inside the body, poor posture can exacerbate varicose veins, pinched nerves and heart strain. Put your body in alignment and things will begin to fall into place -flatter stomach, straighter back, buttocks tucked in more and a longer neck.

You will also move more gracefully, just like in Dancing with the Stars!

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Lipoma Is An easy piece of Fat to get rid of!

A lipoma is a growth of fat cells in a thin, fibrous capsule usually found just below the skin. Lipomas are found most often in the torso, neck, upper thighs, upper arms, and armpits but they can also occur anywhere in the body. One or more lipomas may be present at the same time. Lipomas are the most common noncancerous soft tissue growth.The cause of lipoma is not quite understood. Lipoma does tend to be inherited. Sometimes minor injury may trigger their growth. However, being overweight does not cause lipoma. A lipoma may be surgically removed if it, becomes painful or tender, drains foul-smelling discharge or increases in size.
