driving your car can make you look older

Driving your car can make you look older if you are not careful, says Dr. Jack Peterson.

Many Americans notice extra sun damage on their left side face and arms. In Britain it is the right side. Why? It is the "drivers side" effect. Sun damage is caused when patients have long term exposure to UVA rays from the sun which can penetrate glass. UVA rays cause wrinkles and sun damage, UVB rays cause sunburns.

Whenever you are outdoors,  even when covered from the sun directly or on a cloudy day, you  should be aware that you are not safe from the reflected rays of the sun and should wear sunscreen. If you want toa age as best you can, sun protection is a daily regimen, no matter what you are doing. Put sunblock on before you leave your house.

Until August 31, get 20% off our sunblock product line, including our most popular product Tizo 3 which is a waterproof product that offers an SPF of 30 and a tint that acts as a concealer.

Study shows breast augmentation improves quality of life measures by over 80%

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the United States. Over 289,000 women elected to pursue cosmetic breast augmentation last year alone, a 300 percent increase from just over a decade ago.

 The primary reasons women seek breast augmentation include dissatisfaction with breast size and/or shape  low self-perception of physical attractiveness, and attachment anxieties associated with sexuality. These can lead to patients camouflaging the appearance of their breasts with special brassieres or clothing and/or avoiding being seen undressed by others.

In a study just completed called Breast Q, patients reported significant improvements in satisfaction with breasts - 83%, psychosocial well-being- 88% and sexual functioning - 81%.
