Skin Care Tip
Protect your lips!
The lips are very delicate. Lip skin is specialized and has a specific role and function for humans. Most people forget about their lips except for the occasional lip balm or moisturizer. The lips can get dry or sunburned. It is wise to invest in a lip repair cream - something that can help moisturize them as well as protect them from the sun. Some creams even claim to minimize aging and temporarily rejuvenate fine lip lines. The best lip repair creams are the physician-strength ones, La Roche Posay seems to be one of the most popular and best tolerated. Use one for at least 2-3 months and be consistent. It is rare to notice a difference if a lip repair cream is only used sparingly or for less than a month. Lip Repair Cream is an essential part of an effective skin care regimen.
Cracking the Fiber Confusion
Constipation may be caused by many factors. These could include using certain medications (pain medications, sedatives and antidepressants), eating mostly soft or liquid foods which are low in fiber, and being less physically active. Fiber can help relieve constipation but can also make it worse if you are on medication that is causing the bowel problem. If you are using medications that have made you constipated, you may need to limit your use of high fiber foods. These foods can make constipation worse for some people on certain medications, especially if you are not drinking enough water. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you think that you medication is making you constipated.
If you are not using medications that cause constipation, try using high fiber foods to help soften your stool. Eating plenty of High Fiber Foods, such as broccoli or whole grains will increase your daily fiber intake drastically. Finally, if you are having digestive system problems it is important to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of fluid a day. This will help soften your stool as well.
Optimal fiber intake is a great idea but as with anything, too much can hurt you.
The Mid-face Lift, also known as part of an S-Lift, is meant to reposition the fat pad rather than remove from the eyes. This face lift is not performed in every surgeons office but requires extensive experience and training. The mid-face lift by definition is the elevation and tightening of the soft tissues of the cheek. During this less invasive lift, the cheeks are softly pulled up to restore a more youthful look. This lift may also be accompanied by a Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). This procedure makes the face look less pulled than a traditional facelift. Improvement is more subtle, which is why this procedure is occasionally treated as an add-on to Blepharoplasty. For those over age 45, this surgery is often effective on its own. A mid face lift can also be combined with a short scar face lift to rejuvenate the entire face, including the jowls and neck region.
The mid face lift alone has small scars and incision sites, which means less recovery time. There is a small incision below the eyelid margin so the scar is blended in the small eyelid wrinkle. The flap is upward and excess fat is repositioned. This lifting allows the cheek to have a more youthful appearance. The excess eyelid skin is trimmed off and incisions are closed. There are many different variations of this procedure, and this technique is still evolving with our society.
