Dr Oz: Women’s Health Beauty Secrets
Do you feel like you are losing some of the shine from your appearance as you age? Dr Oz invited Molly Nover-Baker from Women’s Health Magazine to share some of her best advice about brightening your look at any age with lactic acid skin benefits, Vitamin K, and more tricks.
Dr Oz: Dull Skin Remedy
The skin is the body’s largest organ, and sometimes it is the first indicator that we are aging. If it is starting to look dull, Molly Nover-Baker suggested reversing the trend with a common beauty product you may already own.
Dr Oz: Lactic Acid Skin Benefits
Often the outer layer of skin cells is dead and brighter cells are waiting beneath the surface. Exfoliate your skin with Lactic Acid for natural and gentle process that will have you glowing.
It’s best to use Lactic Acid products at night because they increase your sensitivity to the sun. Check for something with 4-10% Lactic Acid. Use it twice a day–once in the morning, followed by SPF moisturizer, and then before bed. You should get results in just a couple weeks.
Dr Oz: Brighter Eyes Vitamin K Remedy
Do you have dark circles under your eyes that you can’t seem to shake, no matter how much beauty rest you get? That could be a sign that you have low blood circulation in that area.
Find a Vitamin K product to help improve this. Apply a small amount, starting at the corner of your eye and blending outward. This will stimulate the lymphatic drainage system underneath your eye to drain any excess fluid beneath the surface.
Vitamin K products need to be refrigerated. You can also get benefits naturally from food sources such as Asparagus, Prunes, and Brussels Sprouts.
Dr Oz: Baking Soda Dull Hair Trick
If your hair has lost its luster over the years, why not put a little spring back into your locks? Though some dullness occurs naturally as part of aging, some of the problem is wear caused by hair product usage.
Product builds up in the hair over years, but you can reverse it by adding a tablespoon of baking soda to two tablespoons of your shampoo. Do this once a month to clear out product that’s clinging to your hair.
Dr Oz: Shampoo Shine Guide
When shopping for shampoo to keep your hair looking bright, choose products that offer UV protection, are transparent, and contain both protein and fatty acids. Too much lather means there is a lot of detergent in a product, so if you notice that, you may want to switch to another brand or formulation.
Dr Oz: Create Your Own Holidays
Do you have one of those Facebook friends who is always announcing whatever wacky holiday is coming up? Doctor Oz mentioned that National Peanut Butter Lovers Month is every November, and International Jugglers Day is observed in April.
A few people in the audience had suggestions for their own crazy holidays, like Bring Your Pet To Work Day and National Rekindle The Flame Day. If you could make up your own holiday, what would you want to celebrate?
