With the warmer and sunnier days amongst us, we must not only consider items like sunscreen and sunglasses to protect our skin, but the foods we eat as well. Believe it or not, the sun isn’t the only thing that can damage and dehydrate your skin! So can the foods you choose to eat.
In order to keep a healthy glow inside and out this season, it is important to consider eating well and hydrating frequently. Here are some foods on our “To Eat” list that will help you look and feel your best all summer long:
- Watermelon. This symbol of summer is around 90 percent water, which hydrates the body!
- Berries. Packed with antioxidants, berries can protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun.
- Pineapple. Packed with vitamins and minerals, this fruit is thought to help lessen inflammation which could bring comfort for people with sunburns.
- Citrus Fruits. Full of vitamin C and amino acids, citrus fruits play a role in collagen production, which can keep skin looking young.
- Cucumber. Cucumbers are mostly water, so they hydrate and replenish the body and skin.
- Tomatoes. Tomatoes not only promote collagen production but also fight off fine lines and wrinkles.
- Salmon. The omega-3 fatty acids in the fish are a key component of how skin cells regulate oil production.
Remember, just eating healthy foods is not enough to protect your skin! Always use multiple forms of sun protection like sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, etc.

Microdermabrasion is a spa procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by treating sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin problems. It may be combined with other procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatment.
During the procedure, your doctor will use a handheld device to transmit tiny crystal particles across the targeted area of aged or damaged skin to scrape away the surface layer. This skin is then suctioned away with a vacuum tool so that the fresh, healthy underlying skin remains. This spa procedure leaves you with fresh, younger-looking skin and a renewed appearance!
The procedure is performed in your doctor’s office and does not require any anesthesia to be used. There is no downtime associated with this procedure, and patients can return to work or other regular activities immediately after. You may experience mild redness for about an hour after the procedure, but this usually goes away on its own. Most patients can achieve noticeable results after a series of five to ten treatment sessions spaced one to two weeks apart.

Have you lost confidence in your appearance as you aged? Do you look in the mirror and wish your younger self was looking back at you? Well we might not be able to turn back time, we can help counteract signs of aging! In time, gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our faces and necks. A facelift can help address these stresses, and have you looking 10-15 years younger!
Facelifts counteract signs of aging by tightening muscle, removing fat, and trimming excess skin, giving your face a fresher, youthful look. They are most effective for patients who want to correct midface sagging, deep creases under the eyes and between the nose and mouth, and loose skin and fat under the chin and jaw.
