A Healthy Within will get you Beautiful Skin. I know you've heard it before, you are what you eat. So why ingest anything that's not good for you? So many skin problems can be traced back to bad eating habits, so go organic, get off any drugs you're on and quit smoking if you smoke. You'll be amazed at the results and you'll be so much more healthy. YOU are the only thing you've got, so take care of YOU!

D.C. is the Sun Smartest! I'm proud to live in the DC Metro area and now I have another reason to be proud. I just heard that residents in the DC region scored the highest in a Sun Smarts quiz, correctly answering questions such as
Is it good to get a base tan?
Are tanning beds safe to use?
DC was ranked 1st in Sun Smarts - even over sun-drenched cities like Tampa and Los Angeles!
Remember, May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month! Go and soak up some knowledge about how to stay safe in the sun.

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Take the time to learn the dangers of sun exposure. You owe it to your health and your self. Make sure you stay sun safe this summer. Sunscreen, long sleeves and limit your time in the sun. See my earlier post in this blog about wrap-around sunglasses. Those will protect your eyes from the sun as well as help prevent fine lines from forming around the eyes.

Vision Correction with Lasik. Years ago, in the early '90's I worked with a woman who had the laser eye surgery performed. I was surprised because at the time she was in her late '70's. She was thrilled with the results, though and recommended the procedure to others. I had often thought of having eye surgery performed to correct my vision. I don't much mind wearing my contacts, though and that's probably my main reason for not having it done.
