Restrict Tanning Bed UsageTanning beds are used by 1.6 million minors every year in the U.S., even though they're known to contribute to melanoma and other skin cancers. Recently, in a step to protect people from the dangers of tanning beds, the FDA proposed two rules to prevent Americans, especially teens, from cancer caused by indoor tanning.

The first rule would prevent anyone under the age of 18 from using indoor tanning. The second would require that those over 18 sign an acknowledgement of risk before their first use of a tanning bed. That waiver would have to be renewed every six months. Through these rules, the FDA hopes to raise the awareness of the risks associated with tanning beds.

“These proposed rules are meant to help adults make their decisions based on truthful information and to ensure manufacturers and tanning facilities take additional steps to improve the safety of these devices,” said FDA Commissioner Stephen Ostroff, M.D.

By having people start using tanning beds later in life, the FDA hopes to limit the damage done over time. Also, hopefully adults are able to make an informed decision.

The proposal also suggests that tanning beds be required to have a “panic” shutdown button, to limit the amount of light that passes through safety eye wear, and making safety warnings on tanning beds easier to read.

In lieu of tanning beds, hopefully people will begin to seek to rejuvenate their skin with radiation-free skin treatments to give their skin a youthful glow.

Winter Skin Care RecoveryThe holidays have past and you’re left with great memories, but now your skin is suffering the consequences of all the fun. The loss of sleep, the sugar cookies, and the wine has left you with dehydrated skin and more pronounced wrinkles and lines. It’s time to treat yourself, and your skin, to some overdue care in the New Year.

Your skin is paying for all of those extra cookies and alcoholic drinks. Alcohol causes dehydration, which forces your body to send nutrients and oxygen away from the skin to cope with the lack of water. This causes your skin to become easily irritated and red. To counteract the damage of alcohol and sugar, try a moisturizer or cream with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, and Chamomile. Products high in Vitamin C and K, and Retinol, give your skin the jump-start it needs to bring back your healthy looking complexion.

Most likely you’ve lost some sleep over the holiday months to stay out with friends and family. Lack of sleep, combined with alcohol intake, can bring out your wrinkles and lines along with those dark circles under your eyes. Your skin loves sleep. Those extra hours give your body the time to regenerate and give you glowing skin in the morning. If you can’t find time for more sleep, try a morning exfoliation to give your skin more radiance.

There’s only so much an external moisturizer or lotion can do. The best thing to do for your skin is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Some H2O will help rid your body of the sugar that has been binding to your blood vessels and collagen for the past few weeks or months. Try a water challenge for the next 30 days to see just how much of a difference a few extra glasses (of water, not wine) will do for your health and your skin.

New Year Skin Rejuvenation OptionsWhile most of us think of lines and wrinkles as the natural byproducts of aging, most of the lines and damage we see in our skin is actually caused more by sun exposure. With the new year, one of your resolutions may be to rejuvenate your skin. There are multiple options available to take care of your skin in 2016. Our experienced team at LipoLaser of South Jersey can help you choose the right option:

  • The easiest method is to use topical creams in both trying to prevent sun damage and as part of a larger skin treatment plan.
  • Jet Peel removes the top-most layer of skin to encourage new skin growth. This procedure works best on simple topical needs and doesn't take long, but isn't effective for more serious problems.
  • Chemical peels are similar to microdermabrasions, using a chemical solution to remove dead skin cells and promote new growth, and are usually used for superficial problems. Deeper chemical peels have largely been replaced by laser procedures.
  • Microcurrent facial encourage your skin to make collagen (the most abundant protein in the body that holds it together) and rejuvenate surface skin and the deeper layers.

Fat Reduction Diet for the New YearIt’s that time of year again! Are you ready to reclaim your youthful appearance and lose those unwanted pounds? At LipoLaser of South Jersey, we can help you do both with our state-of-the-art laser technology for facial rejuvenation and body sculpting.

But every good plan to reclaim your health also has a healthy eating component to keep you looking your best all year round. Try these good health guidelines for the New Year:

  • Leave the carbs on the table. Skip the bread basket at dinner and try eating your sandwiches open-faced with no top bun or as lettuce wraps. Cutting back on carbs can reduce fat by helping you retain less water and lower your overall caloric intake.
  • Avoid bad fats. Learn the good from the bad. Fish are rich in good fats. Fried foods are rich in bad fats.
  • Drink water! You hear this all the time and there’s a reason. Water keeps you well hydrated, makes you feel fuller, and gives your skin a healthy glow. Make a habit of carrying a water bottle with you and always reach for it before you reach for any carbonated or alcoholic drinks.

This is the time of year filled with cookies, cakes, and eggnog, all of which can add inches to your waistline. But you can take control this holiday season and start the new year off looking your best! At LipoLaser of South Jersey, we offer a variety of body sculpting options to take inches off your body!

You can also avoid packing on those holidays pounds by starting a few good habits now:

Lose weight over the holidays

  • Drink more water. Water not only keeps you well hydrated, it can keep you fuller longer. Many times adults think they are hungry when they are actually thirsty. Reach for a glass of water first and you can save yourself some unneeded calories.
  • Pack a snack. It’s the time of year when you are always trying to fit one more errand in. Make sure you have a healthy snack in your purse to stave off those cravings for the holiday treats while shopping.
  • Get more sleep. Studies have shown one of the keys to losing weight and keeping it off is getting an adequate amount of rest. Make sure to get 8 to 9 hours a night so your body systems can run normally.

Fruits Good for Your SkinWhat you eat doesn’t just affect the health of your body, it also shows in the health of your skin. Try integrating these five foods regularly into your diet for a healthier glow to your skin this winter.

  1. Lemons can help remove wrinkles and blackheads. Their vitamin C content helps to reduce acne and pimples while simultaneously boosting your collagen levels.
  2. Berries of any kind – blueberries, raspberries, strawberries – contain antioxidants that protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun.
  3. Avocados provide protections from harmful environmental damage that causes lines and wrinkles because of their antioxidant carotenoids that quench free radicals.
  4. Kiwis are packed with vitamins C and E that can protect your skin against UV damage. Kiwis actually have more vitamin C per serving than oranges!
  5. Red tomatoes contain the powerful antioxidant lycopene that has been found to neutralize harmful chemicals and protect the skin from sun damage and skin aging due to sun exposure.

Winterize Your Skin CareWinter is here, bringing with it colder, drier air that can wreak havoc on your soft skin. With harsher weather, you need to change up your skin care routine to make sure you have a soft, young looking face to present to the world for the coming holidays and new year!

Try these tips to winterize your skin care routine:

  1. Exfoliate. It’s a good time of year to start with a clean slate. Slough off those dead outer layers to reveal your fresh face underneath.
  2. Cleanse gently. All of us tend to get a little oiler in the warmer months of the year, but in colder times, it’s smart to switch to a gentler cleanser that doesn’t remove all the natural oils from your skin.
  3. Moisturize more. You will probably naturally do this because your skin will start to feel drier, but you can switch to a heavier weight moisturizer than you use in summer months to keep your skin moist and soft.

Are you ready to switch up your skin care routine and take control of rejuvenating your youthful looks?
