3 Steps to Beauty at Every Age
When I walk into work every day, I devote myself to helping my clients look their best, and I love the mixture of art and science I get to call on. While so many forms of media tell us differently, beauty knows no age. With the right strategy, we can find beauty at every stage of life. Here are some things to focus on during each phase. 20s–30s: Prevent This is the prime time to set yourself up for a lifetime of beauty. Two of the biggest threats to healthy skin are overexposure to the sun and smoking. Use sunscreen and cover-ups like glasses and hats to prevent sun damage. In this phase of your life, customized facials, laser hair removal, and specialized skin treatments can all serve as preventive treatments. Of course, eating well and exercising are important too, but you may not realize yet just how important these practices are. In some cases, Botox can be utilized to discourage deeper wrinkles from forming. 40s–50s: Treat Your body will begin to have different needs at this point in your life. As you begin to become aware of changes, work with your health and beauty team to develop a treatment plan to address any imbalances or deficiencies you notice. We can treat early wrinkles and volume loss with fillers, boosting areas that may show some signs of aging with specific, targeted treatments that add definition and contour to your appearance. As you notice wrinkles settling in, Botox can be especially helpful to treat areas around the eyes and lips. Some of our clients begin to feel fatigued or just not quite the same as they did 10 years earlier. At this point, a hormone evaluation can help determine imbalances. In an evaluation, we can find out how your vitamin D, testosterone, human growth levels, and estrogen are doing. With bioidentical hormones, we can replace deficiencies and help you feel as good as you deserve to.
60s–70s: Maintain Now that you’ve emerged gracefully into this season, the best thing you can do for your skin is to maintain what you have. Your No. 1 priority is to maintain and return moisture with hydrating treatments. No. 2 on your list is to return some of the volume you’ve lost over time. Treatments like thread lifts and Volbella can do wonders to maintain and boost the volume you have. These treatments target specific areas, including lips, the under-eye area, and under the neck. Often, the best approach is a combined treatment, like a thread lift with Thermage. At every age, we can also assess the need for reversing and correcting issues. Because genes play a role in the aging process, each person differs in the way it shows. Even when we do all we can with preventive maintenance in the form of diet, sunscreen, and exercise, sometimes we need extra help. From platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to fillers, these treatments replenish and revitalize our patients, returning youth and vitality to their life.
Whatever season of life you are in, we have all the treatments you need right here.

The Best Beauty Brands for Halloween
Killer Tips for Ghoulish Makeup and More The standard for Halloween costume mastery grows higher and higher each year. A generation ago, most adults took little stock in how they dressed up. If they had some cheap plastic fangs and a cape, they were trying pretty hard. Today, with Instagram and Pinterest inspiring costume creators nationwide, you have to be willing to go above and beyond if you want to stand out. Face paint that you buy at the party store is certainly not going to cut it. If you want to turn “you look like hell” into a compliment, consider picking up some products from these brands. Mehron Makeup While Mehron does make traditional beauty products, it’s mostly known as a revered name within the world of performance and special effects makeup. Mehron products are formulated to be bold and long-lasting. Unlike many other stage makeup companies, Mehron doesn’t use cheap ingredients, like alcohol, which provide hold but also damage skin. The company also makes excellent fake blood, synthetic flesh, and other costume-enhancing products. Manic Panic Manic Panic is a great hair dye brand for those needing temporary or semi- permanent options. Its flagship line of dyes contains a vast array of colors and will stay in your hair for as short as two weeks and as long as one month. If two weeks is a little too long for your liking, Manic Panic also makes Dye Hard styling gel that will rinse out in 1–2 washes. Either way, your hairdo will look a lot more convincing than that of folks who opt for the awful spray can stuff. Eylure Eylure is a British company that makes false lashes and other eye products for all occasions. While its natural-looking false lashes garner rave reviews, Halloween is the perfect chance to try out their more dramatic or exaggerated styles. To mark the occasion, Eylure produces a seasonal line of lashes named “Spooky,” “Batwing,” and “Catface.” At under $15 per pair, they’re an affordable way to make your costume pop.
This year, leave the party-store makeup for the little ghouls and treat yourself to something a little more glamorous.

New moms are faced with so many things to think about: caring for a new baby, taking care of themselves, and, somehow, learning how to be a parent overnight. It can be overwhelming! First of all, take a deep breath. You can’t tackle it all at once, but you can take small steps toward helping yourself feel like you again. Here are a few tips to follow. Talk to your doctor about your vitamin and mineral balance. You will most likely want to continue with your prenatal vitamins postpartum, and there may be other vitamins and minerals you can benefit from. Talk to your doctor to determine safe and beneficial supplements. If you’re feeling imbalanced, they can recommend safe, helpful options. Eat a balanced diet. A good diet is important for you and your baby’s health, especially if you’re breastfeeding. The nutrients you consume will also go to your Healthy Advice New Moms for
baby, so turn to easy, healthy meals. (Yes, it is possible.) Try meals that you can grill ahead of time, cut up, and freeze for later in the week; fresh prewashed peas, carrots, and tomatoes for a salad; and frozen berries that you can turn into a delicious smoothie. Get back to your exercise routine. It’s tempting to let exercise fall by the wayside with everything else you have to prioritize — but don’t let it. Exercise will not only help you maintain your weight, but it will also lift your spirits and promote the production of hormones that keep you healthy. Make time for yourself. Whether it’s a relaxing and detoxifying facial massage or a yoga class, make sure you’re carving out some time each day for yourself. We know it’s hard at first to leave your new baby, even for a little bit. But giving yourself “me time” and turning some focus inward can actually help you be a better mom. Remember, you just went through an important, life changing event! Give yourself some time to celebrate that fact and care for yourself. You and your baby will be better for it.

Halloween Costume Inspiration From Celebs
Throwback: Selena Demi Lovato, Kim Kardashian, and America Ferrera have all paid homage to the beloved “Queen of Tejano Music” with Halloween looks that drew from the iconic singer’s performance attire. Start scouring eBay now for the perfect purple jumpsuit to complete your costume and set your playlist to “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.” Family Friendly: Kid Inspired The cuteness of Jessica Alba’s family is hard to beat, especially when they’re dressed as the Incredibles. Don’t worry! There are plenty of options for family costumes inspired by children’s movies, from “Despicable Me” to “Coco.” Painted: Frida Kahlo The Queen herself — Queen Bey, that is — previously dressed up as the legendary Mexican artist and feminist icon and looked amazing doing it. If your Halloween plans involve a significant other, get your partner to dress up as Diego Rivera for a winning couple’s costume.
During Halloween, we get to be someone else for a night. Whether you choose to be funny, spooky, or sexy, you have the perfect excuse to put on a costume and channel your inner diva or superhero. Whether your plans involve going to a party or taking little ones trick-or-treating, here are a few ideas to get you inspired. Power Suit: Wonder Woman Like Sofía Vergara showed off three years ago, the Amazon princess- turned-superhero is a powerful and fun costume. This is also a great choice if you’re going with a group, as there are infinite characters in the DC Comics universe for everyone to pick from.
