The Doctors: 7 Problems & 7 Solutions in 7 Minutes
In order to celebrate Dr Andrew Ordon’s new book, Better in Seven, The Doctors offered seven problems and seven solutions in seven minutes. All show long, Dr Ordon shared many of his tips, tricks, and secrets to a better mind and body. Here are seven of the most common beauty and body issues and how you can solve them with nothing more than what’s in your refrigerator and pantry! Check out the Pimple Aspirin Paste and Grapefruit Nail Soak, along with other diet advice and home remedies.
Dark Circles: Cold Compress Remedy
Everyone wants to look refreshed and healthy, but we can’t always get the eight hours of sleep we need in order to guarantee that. In order to keep your eyes looking wide awake (even when you’re not), use cold compresses like caffeinated tea bags and cucumbers.
The Doctors: Flatter Tummy and Thinner Thighs Diet Advice
In women, estrogen causes fat to gather most in the tummy and the thighs. However, certain foods can actually alter this and slim these areas down. Add lots of fiber to your diet in the form of brown rice, brown cereal, and lean meats such as chicken and fish. Avoid foods that cause bloating, like carbohydrates; instead, stick to fresh fruits and vegetables. Also, don’t drink cow’s milk or soy milk and drink almond and rice milk instead. Plus, don’t forget the exercise!
The Drs TV: Anti-Wrinkle Mash
To fight wrinkles, create this anti-wrinkle mash at home: mix together skinless sweet potatoes, steamed carrots, 1 tablespoon of agave powder, and 1 tablespoon of matcha tea powder.
To make a natural moisturizer, blend together three tablespoons of cream, 1/4 avocado, and 1 tablespoon honey. Apply to face or hands and let sit one hour, then gently wash off with warm water.
Grapefruit Nail Soak Remedy
To exfoliate and soften the cuticles around your nails, cut a grapefruit in half and add a drop of oil. Stick your fingers inside the grapefruit and let soak. Afterwards, soak your fingers in yogurt and cinnamon to naturally moisturize.
The Drs: Decolletage Moisturizer
Unfortunately, a woman’s decolletage often reveals her age. Do not use harsh soap on the area; instead, moisturize and use Vitamin C. You can also buy a decolletage pad to make the skin healthier.
The Doctors: Pimple Aspirin Paste
Finally, a very common problem: pimples. Make a paste out of water and baby aspirin. Apply to your face and cover with band aid for ten minutes. This fights pimples because of the salicylic acid, which is the number one ingredient in many over-the-counter acne drugs.
