Shea Butter and Coconut Oil as a Winter Face Moisturizer

January 15, 2019 - 8:25am

Oh, my love-hate relationship with the internet.  The internet extols the miraculous end-all, be-all, cure-all that is shea butter.  It vows, vigorously, that coconut oil can cure acne, cure wrinkles, cure warts and, even maybe cancer!  

Can the internet ever be wrong?

Sometimes, the internet gets it wrong.

It’s so important to check sources. It’s so important to search the opposite of wondrous, bordering on ecstatic, claims. It’s important and healthy to think critically and skeptically.

Old Looking Hands

November 14, 2018 - 9:51am

I bet your hands look older than your face. Mine do. They take such a beating with all of the hand washing I do. Our hands work hard. Their appearance tells the tale.

You know how preachy I get about your skin being an organ. That goes for your hands as well. This precious, life saving outer organ protects our precious inner organs. It is our first line of defense against infectious diseases and when it’s cracked or dry, even on the hands, this line of defense is compromised.

So, for your health, dedicate time to your digits.

Tighten the Mummy Tummy

November 1, 2018 - 3:58pm

I’ve been using Exilis RF, for fat reduction on the body, for over eight years. 

Did you know that Exilis can do more than that?

Exilis RF is proven by Health Canada and the FDA to reduce body fat. It’s also proven to tighten skin. For as long as I have been doing treatments to reduce a chubby tummy, I’ve also been doing treatments to tighten the Mummy Tummy.

The Anti-Collagen

October 25, 2018 - 11:19am

We’re all trying to increase our collagen production so we can look as young as possible. 

Last week I discussed some facts and some fiction about upping your collagen. What if there was an Anti – Collagen? 

There is. There’s something that breaks down your body’s collagen. It ages your skin, hair, nails, and teeth. It weakens your muscles and connective tissues. You’re not going to like it. It’s your sweet tooth.

Yes, sugar is the Anti – Collagen.

Collagen Facts and Fiction

October 19, 2018 - 9:28am

There are a lot of photos on Facebook right now of people looking way younger after eating or drinking collagen. 

Here’s what you need to know.

Collagen is a protein. It’s part of your hair, muscles, skin, tendons, and teeth. Everyone wants to make more collagen so they can look young. It may not be the way you think.

When you eat or drink collagen, your body digests it. Your body breaks it down. Eating and drinking collagen does not result in collagen.

Fall is a Great Time to Correct Summer Sun Damage

October 3, 2018 - 8:16am

You’re probably outside less now that it’s Fall; especially this Fall as it’s cold beyond compare.  Even if you are outside, the sun isn’t as strong and it’s not up as long.  This is a perfect time of year to correct summer sun damage.  How do we do that?

Over the past ten plus years, I’ve often helped people improve sun damaged faces, necks, and chests.   We do that with a combination of treatments.  We can supplement it with a regimen of products used at home.
