September 2009

Most of us in our 30’s, 40’s or 50’s would agree that if we knew in our 20’s what we know now about skin care, we might have done things quite a bit differently. True? Well, the same can be said now about the future….if we knew in our 60’s or 70’s that there was something we could be doing now to slow down the sagging, bags and wrinkles, wouldn’t we do it? But what is it? What could we possibly be doing now to ensure that we look better today AND in the future?

Understanding about the structure of the skin and why it shows aging is a start in knowing how to take action in improving our appearance now and into the future…

Shedding Light on LED

May 2009

“It seems as if every day new, exciting technologies are created to help slow down the aging process.  Traditionally, medical anti-aging and wrinkle treatments have been fairly aggressive.  There is now a demand for non-surgical procedures to treat different skin types and conditions.  One of the most exciting fields today is light therapy.  To be a little more precise, light-emitting diodes (LED)…

LED is a non-invasive approach to working with light, and during the past 10 years, independent world-wide research from organizations such as NASA has shown that light applied in the correct wave-length stimulates inter-cellular communication, resulting in skin rejuvenation.”

Cellulite: Fact & Fiction
Source:  M’Lis
Author:  J. Lynn Wilde, ND, PhD

“According to a study done by researchers in the late 1970’s, the cause of the rippling effect of cellulite is fluid retention and toxic accumulation in the adipose (fatty) tissues.  The retained fluids cause visible swelling of thighs, hips and abdomen, etc., but even worse, the toxic wastes they contain break down the all-important collagen and elastin fibers that keep the skin firm and smooth.  The biggest reason for this breakdown is poor blood circulation….Cellulite generally chooses areas with poor circulation, to start with, which in turn slows circulation even more.”

Can You Get Fit in Six Minutes a Week?
Source:  Health Section – New York Times Online, June 24, 2009 –
Author:  Gretchen Reynolds

“The potency of interval training is nothing new. Many athletes have been straining through interval sessions once or twice a week along with their regular workout for years. But what researchers have been looking at recently is whether humans, like that second group of rats, can increase endurance with only a few minutes of strenuous exercise, instead of hours? Could it be that most of us are spending more time than we need to trying to get fit?  The answer, a growing number of these sports scientists believe, may be yes.”

Top 15 Dangerous Ingredients In Skin Care
Source:  Natural Solutions Magazine –

“Isn’t it astonishing that cosmetics do not require approval before they hit the market’s shelves? I had a hard time swallowing that until I read it straight from the Web site of the FDA (the agency that regulates the cosmetics industry).

“Under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act, cosmetics and their ingredients are not required to undergo approval before they are sold to the public. This means that manufacturers may use any ingredient or raw material, except for color additives and a few prohibited substances, to market a product without a government review or approval.”

Yikes. Well, there are those few prohibited substances. Thank goodness they saw to banning (a meager) 10 ingredients–as compared to 1,100 ingredients banned in cosmetics by the European Union. And while it’s good to know that the FDA is protecting us from mercury compounds and chloroform–what about the long list of other problem ingredients that are prohibited elsewhere but allowed in American beauty products?

Caffeinism:  The Side Effects of Caffeine
Source - M’Lis

“Coffee is the number one drink in America with six of ten adults drinking it every day.  Caffeine is probably the most widely used drug in America, and it has absolutely no nutritional value. With this wonder drug, people think they can get the jump on their fellow man. And teenagers love cola, which accounts for 25% of the total caffeine consumption. It is estimated that 30% of Americans take between 500-600 mg. of caffeine per day, and 10% use more than 1000 mg. per day. The average person, including children, consumes 200 mg. per day. One cup of coffee contains 100-150 mg. and one to two cups exceed the level at which your brain can be adversely affected.”

Is Fat Still The Enemy?
Source – M’Lis

“Focus on fat… Over the past 20 years, health professionals have been advising Americans to dramatically decrease their consumption of dietary fat to reduce risks of obesity and heart disease. In response to these warnings, health-conscious consumers have been changing their eating habits to reduce fat intake. Food manufacturers have responded to consumer demand for reduced-fat products, reformulating recipes for everything from baked goods to salad dressings.  Many public health experts now believe that this 'reduced fat' approach to healthful eating has been too simplistic and has backfired in some ways. Especially worrisome is our nationwide increase in the percentage of adults who are overweight, since excess body fat is associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and poor blood lipid profile (high cholesterol, low HDL and high triglycerides).”

Is Sugar Really Bad For You?
Source:  M’Lis
Author:  Nancy Appleton, Ph.D., from “Lick the Sugar Habit”

“The white crystalline substance we know of as sugar is an unnatural substance produced by industrial processes (mostly from sugar cane or sugar beets) by refining it down to pure sucrose, after stripping away all the vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes and other beneficial nutrients. The multi-step refinement process that sugar goes through is actually very similar to the process of refining heroin from the poppy, whereby the substance that is the end result is a chemical that is totally alien to the human system.  And, both are incredibly addictive!

The average American now consumes approximately 115 lbs. of sugar per year. This is per man, woman and child.  Sugar is delectable, seductive to the taste, and incredibly habit forming.  Starting with sugar in the baby's formula, people not only develop a strong taste for sugar but an insatiable craving for it so that they never seem to get enough of this poison.

Here are 87 reasons why sugar and sweeteners are ruining your health…”
