EAT OUT LESS We all love restaurants but there’s a reason their food tastes so good: lots of butter, oil, sugar and salt. By visiting fewer restaurants you’ll avoid over-sized portions, lots of empty calories and fat. We’re not saying never go to restaurants, but perhaps limit it to once-a-week or special occasions. 2. DRINK YOUR FOOD; EAT YOUR WATER In other words, eat slower, chew more and swish your water around in your […]

    5 Effective Solutions for Adult Acne

    By: | Tags: , , , , ,

    Almost everyone has tried conventional acne therapies and approaches to acne–creams, cleansers, TV products, prescription drugs, and other home remedies–to little or no effect.

But dietary imbalances and stress also cause flare-ups. “Acne” in […]

    Chin Fat Reduction with FDA-Approved KYBELLA®

    By: | Tags: , , , , ,

The treatment is minimally invasive. The procedure also can improve related symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning and night cramps. Treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take up to two months to […]
