Your skin is the largest organ in your body, so it gets a lot of abuse. If you want it to look good for you, there are a few habits that will be a mainstay of good skin care throughout your life – no matter what your age.
If you love the 80’s & remember singing Madonna’s iconic song: “Like a Virgin”, and although at 50 years old, that feeling for Madonna is long gone – she can still rock it and look fabulous doing it. Of course, she has some good genes but she also leads a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, eating well, and staying out of the sun. Make no mistake about it though – she may have made a lot of money by “feeling like a virgin”, but part of her beauty secrets is that she is no virgin to Botox.

It all starts in October. Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins start to appear everywhere you go. You pay for gas, there’s a peanut butter pumpkin. You pick up a prescription, there’s a peanut butter pumpkin. You buy a pair of socks, there’s a peanut butter pumpkin. And that’s just the beginning.
Most of our patients still have an area or two where the fat just seems to hold on no matter how much weight they have lost or how much they exercise. Previously, the only option you had to get rid of these areas was liposuction but the risks involved with surgery didn’t always sound appealing to these patients. But now – there are options!
With pumpkins exploding in grocery stores across the nation we want to take a minute to explore the benefits of pumpkins and why it’s okay to add it in your fall menus. One of my favorite magazines is Oxygen. Last month they had a great article on pumpkins and their many benefits.
I have probably eaten more vegetables in the past seven months than in the past seven years combined! Once or twice a month I might open up a can of green beans and throw it in the microwave with some cream of mushroom soup, but that was pretty much it. I also may have enjoyed a bowl of salad toppings with a side of lettuce, on occasion. I lived alone and was only cooking for myself so I figured it didn’t matter. In fact, it rarely crossed my mind that it might matter.
