Skin Care Tip:

Use Physician-Strength Skin Care!

The skin is a special organ.  The cosmoceutical industry is a multi-billion dollar a year industry.  There are so many different skin care lines available to consumers that the choice can be very confusing.  My advice - choose a doctor-branded skin care line.  Not only do doctors have to finish medical school and a residency, but their knowledge of the skin often exceeds that of many skin care companies. 

Areas covered by these skin care products range anywhere from rosacea calming correctors with oil absorbing agents, night reform treatments, product multi-pack kits, crease release and wrinkle-relaxing agents utilizing enzymes, firming facial peels using anti-inflammatory alpha lipoic acids, and balm emollients containing marine collagen extract to correct aggressively peeled skin.  neaclear has also added stabilized liquid oxygen into all of their products!  The biggest difference, however, is that the physician-strength brands are more intensively studied!  This is a very important point and makes a big difference.  The best physician-strength lines are

neaclear and Obagi seem to be the most popular, best tolerated and most effective.   neaclear was started by a plastic surgeon and Obagi by a dermatologist.  Who better knows about your skin??

Physician-strength skin care is an essential part of an effective skin care regimen.

Anti-Aging Tip:

Low Sugar is still the trend!

A low sugar diet (aka low-carb diet) is still a very popular trend right now.  Carbohydrates are an essential food group and your body does need them.  However, the benefits of a low-carb diet are plenty.  Of course, diet alone is never a wise choice and exercise is an integral supplement to wellness.  A low sugar diet is obviously also beneficial for people who have diabetes.  Most people do not realize, however, that sugar not only increases our waistline, but also decreases the elasticity of your skin.  Two more important things to keep in mind when you're eyeing that candy bar! 

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

Plastic Surgery Tip:

Lots of people are interested in getting breast rejuvenation or breast lifts. We always get questions about whether or not the procedure is necessary, effectiveness and different treatment options. Surgical breast rejuvenation is a very common procedure and very safe if performed by an accredited physician.  Please check out the wealth of information on our site by clicking here.
