Wrinkles, Wrinkles, Go Away!

Here’s the bad news first… no matter how well you care for your skin, you WILL eventually get wrinkles.

As we age and because of our genetics, wrinkles develop on the forehead and between the eyes (glabella region), and crow’s feet appear beside the outer portion of the eyes. This wrinkling happens because of the strong muscular actions that occur thousands and thousands of times during our lifetime. The result is wrinkles in cosmetically sensitive areas.


Does Excessive Sweating Have You Sweating?

Believe it or not, you may be suffering from one of the most common medical conditions — hyperhidrosis. Essentially, it’s a fancy term for excessive sweating. Arm pits, hands and the scalp are the usual suspects, but for those of us who have given a presentation or had to shake hands at an important business or social function, we know it all too well.
