You probably know that skin is your body’s biggest organ, a flexible sort of “armor” to protect all your other organs. But you may wonder, what exactly is skin? Your skin has three layers.

Five Vitamins & Nutrients for Keen Vision and Pretty Eyes

Vitamin A   While we’re on the subject of eyes, let’s talk Vitamin A—also known as beta carotene. Vitamin A helps maintain healthy teeth, bones, skin and good vision. It’s especially important for sharp low light vision, which tends to decline as we age. In fact, cases of extreme deficiency can lead to blindness!   […]


Anti-aging For The Area Around Your Eyes

Your eyes are the window to your soul, which means we use them to convey loads of emotions. Surprised? Raise your eyebrows! Delighted? Break into a grin, complete with eye-corner crinkles!

They should be normal part of daily life—something you’re not embarrassed to do or to talk about. Constipation increases skin blemishes and belly-bloat and generally […]

Integrative Aesthetics: A Holistic Approach to Beauty

These days, “holistic” is a buzzword. It pops up everywhere, from your local veterinarian’s office to your company’s annual team-building conference. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, holistic means “dealing with or treating the whole of something or someone and not just a part.” In medicine, a holistic approach includes preventative care, such as practicing healthy […]
