Skin Care Tip:

Is Eye Cream Really Necessary?

Eye cream is designed to help protect and nourish the delicate area of the skin around the eyes. Physician-strength skin care experts say that the areas around our eyes are the most sensitive. This skin is constantly under pressure from squinting, blinking and rubbing throughout the day. This is why we need to protect this extremely sensitive area by using eye cream on a daily basis.

However, before you rush out and buy any particular physician-strength eye cream, it is important to buy the correct one. Different uses for eye creams include: eliminating fine lines and dark circles, reducing puffiness and improving overall quality of eyelid skin.

When choosing between physician-strength eye creams, it is important to know that lightweight creams are usually tolerated the best. Heavy creams can block up the pores and cause problems worse then what you were trying to correct or prevent. It is best to stick with a creamy texture that usually works best over serums or gels, that can typically be more irritating.

Anti-Aging Tip:

The Ultimate Anti-Aging Diet!

It seems as if everyone is always trying to find the “magic bullet” that will delay the natural aging process. Some experts say the best answer to aging more gracefully can be found in the grocery store—in fruits and vegetables, green tea and a variety of other foods that are naturally rich in antioxidants.

What is Aging?

Of course, the signs of aging include not only wrinkles but also memory loss and decreased brain function, as well as an overall decrease in capacity of all body functions. Adopting a healthy life style that includes regular physical activity, adequate sleeping patterns, avoiding tobacco and alcohol, and consuming a diet full of healthy foods and beverages can be the best defense against aging.

Just eat healthy, ok?

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Laser Hair Removal Is Still Around!

It is important to know that laser hair removal is a non-invasive method of photoepilation, which does not require needles or chemical creams.

The advantages of laser hair removal include:

- A safe treatment if performed by a Certified and Licensed Medical Esthetician.
- It is considered to be relatively painless when compared to other methods.
- Many consumers have experienced long-lasting hair removal and even permanent hair reduction.

No matter what anyone claims, laser hair removal is never 100% effective and never involves just oen treatment. It is still around, though, and still very popular becuase it does actually work....
