This article is based upon my own recent scare when I got honey stuck in my windpipe:


BEST REVIEW - TOP 4 TIPS IF YOU CHOKE ON HONEY 2012

 I recently had a terrifying personal experience when I got some honey stuck in my windpipe. I could not breathe and everything I tried made the situation worse. I ended up having to call 911 to ask how to get the honey out after I had gone for a more than a minute without breathing, but by that time I couldn't speak. However, the effort of trying to gasp out my story began to loosen the honey and by the time the paramedic arrived, I was breathing, but with difficulty.

BEST REVIEW - TOP 10 ARTICLES ON OBESITY AND WEIGHT LOSS

Obesity has been called an epidemic in America, and you cannot visit a newsstand without seeing magazines with articles devoted to how to lose weight. Yet, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that a shocking 42% of our country's population will be obese by 2030. At the same time, there has been a movement to develop more plus-size models while the government cracks down on sodas and Happy Meals. What is wrong with this picture?

Rodan + Fields Occlusion Therapy for Dark Spots & Hyperpigmentation | Skin Health Beauty

Do you have brown spots, melasma, age spots, or other forms of hyperpigmentstion? This article reveals a special beauty secret for treating stubborn dark marks on the skin!
Rodan + Fields Occlusion Therapy for Dark Spots & Hyperpigmentation

Years of sun bathing, using tanning beds or even the incidental sun exposure of 20 minutes a day outdoors without sunscreen can result in sun damage with unsightly changes to the skin’s pigmentation. The skin begins to look dull, with dark marks, age spots, melasma and other hyperpigmentation. If you sunbathe too often, you might even develop “tanorexic mom” skin.  

Rodan + Fields Dermatologists has the solution -- occlusion therapy using the Reverse Regimen. Find out more about occlusion therapy HERE

Occlusion Therapy: Treatment for Hard-to-Remove Dark Spots


My "before" photo showing the dark spots I treated with Reverse

The sun takes its toll on our skin. In fact, photoaging from the sun causes 80% of the signs of aging to our skin.

Sun bathing, tanning beds and sun exposure of 20 minutes a day outdoors without sunscreen can result in skin appearing dull, with dark marks, age spots or melasma, also known as liver spots and hyperpigmentation.

The sun causes your skin to protect itself by producing melanin. This dark pigment is in several layers of skin and what you see on the surface of the skin is the tip of the iceberg. Much more pigment lurks below the surface. This dark pigment below the surface may not be visible yet, but it already is making the skin duller and less reflective. And over time, the darker color will rise to the surface as more and more age spots appear.

Those stubborn spots take more time and treatment. That's why I recommend the REVERSE Regimen.

Changes happen slowly over time making it difficult to see all of the great changes that your skin is making. The longer you use the products, the more visible the results will be.

I recommend taking before and after photos comparing skin after using the REVERSE Regimen twice a day for at least 60 days. Be sure to follow directions and be consistent with using all the products over your entire face, neck, décolleté, and/or hands. Each step builds on the next to both treat and help prevent abnormal pigmentation.

If you are struggling with hard-to-treat dark marks, here is a great tip for you.

OCCLUSION THERAPY

1) Deep Exfoliating Wash: Wet skin with lukewarm water. Using fingertips, gently and evenly massage a quarter-sized amount onto entire face for 30-60 seconds, avoiding contact with eyes.  Rinse thoroughly; pat dry. Use once every other day and increase to twice daily as tolerated.
2) Skin Lightening Toner: Apply evenly to entire face with a fresh gauze pad, avoiding the eye area. Do not rinse off.   Allow to dry. Use once every other day and increase to twice daily as tolerated.
3) Skin Lightening Treatment: Apply a generous dime-sized amount evenly over the entire face, morning and evening, avoiding the eye area. Allow treatment to penetrate skin. Do not rinse off. Use once every other day and increase to twice daily as tolerated.
4) Now apply extra Skin Lightening Treatment over stubborn dark marks. Cut or tear plastic or saran wrap or plastic wrap and lay it over the extra layer of Skin Lightening Treatment. Let it set for 2 hours.
5) Remove plastic wrap, blend in the Skin Lightening Treatment and continue with any other products that you use in the morning or evening.
Do this treatment 2 hours a day, 5 days a week for 2 weeks.
For those stubborn marks that do not lighten, you may need to see a dermatologist.

Summer is about to hit with a vengeance as June turns into July and the 4th of July promises to bring the bright red of sunburn to unprotected skin.

Sunburn is a form of radiation burn from an overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. It is not only painful, but sunburn causes premature aging and can lead to skin cancer. To keep your skin safe and healthy, use a broad-spectrum skin care product appropriate for your specific skin type.

Sunscreens for the Face

Wrinkles/Dryness: For those concerned with dryness, wrinkles, and fine lines, the ultimate sunscreen product is the Redefine Triple Defense Treatment. With photostable broad spectrum SPF 30 protection and a clinically proven concentration of powerful peptides to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and visibly firm the skin.
Brown spots: For the strongest sunburn protection Reverse Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Sunscreen features stabilized avobenzone and anti-oxidant/anti-inflammatory colorless carotenoids to provide prolonged broad spectrum protection.
Sensitive skin: The Soothe Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is made without chemical sunscreens, fragrance, dyes or alcohol that can irritate sensitive skin. The lightweight formula protects the skin and the skin’s delicate moisture barrier.
Acne: For those who suffer with acne, the wrong sunscreen can cause breakouts and blemishes, the Unblemish Oil Control Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 20 controls oiliness as it protects against UV rays that intensify post-acne marks and uneven skin tone.

Body Sunscreen

Formulated to use on the entire body, Essentials Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Body Sunscreen is a light broad spectrum sunscreen that isn't sticky or greasy. It protects the skin’s moisture barrier and contains antioxidant vitamins C and E to absorb damaging free radicals and anti-inflammatory ingredients to protect skin from environmental stress.
