The Doctors: Hidden Allergens In Your Home
If you have allergies, you’re certainly not alone. But before you take your medication, you’ll want to know what author of “Clean Design” Robin Wilson, had to say about hidden allergens in your home. It seems kind-of obvious, but the easiest way to prevent allergies is to avoid the allergen. Approximately one in five people suffer from asthma and allergies, which is why Robin wanted to reveal simple solutions that are inexpensive and easy to use. First, instead of a mat that could collect dirt and dust, try a natural-fiber mat to wipe off your shoes.
You also want to keep your shoes in the entryway so you’re not dragging pollutants throughout your home. If you have an ice maker or water dispenser on your fridge, you’ll want to clean out the filter every once in a while to be sure they’re working effectively. The average person waits six years before replacing or washing their pillow. Either wash your pillow or buy a new hypo-allergenic pillow with a zip-up pillowcase that can be removed for washing. It’s a good idea to replace your pillow every three years.
The Doctors: Number 7 Skin Products For Healthy Skin Care
Next, Jodie, a single, divorced mom of two girls, noticed a few more lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging on her face. She was in desperate need of a skin care reboot so The Doctors’ sent her shopping at Target with a beauty expert. Jodie typically uses coconut oil to remove makeup, tea tree oil as a cleanser, and coconut oil again as a moisturizer. She has dry to normal skin, so it was suggested that she try a mild cleanser day and night to avoid stripping the oils necessary for healthy skin. Because Jodie often works outside, it was important that she always wear sunscreen, and was offered a cream by Number 7 that works as both a moisturizer and a sunscreen. The Number 7 Protect and Perfect Serum is great to use day and night after cleansing, to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr Sonia Batra pointed out the importance of peptides, which can be found in Number 7 products, because they help the skin look younger and firmer. Dr Jennifer Berman also stressed the importance of a healthy diet, regular exercise, and getting plenty of sleep. Dr Batra also recommended the Number 7 Protect and Perfect Serum which is available online or at Target for less than $30.
When it comes to perfecting your smile as well, you can use actress Jessica Chastain’s trick. She revealed that she presses her tongue to the back of her teeth to keep from over-smiling. Pout was then revealed as the word of the day and you can use the word pout on The Doctors’ website to enter for a chance to win a Start Pure toothbrush and teeth-whitening kit.
