Your Skin

Skin care is an age-old phenomenon.  The ancient Egyptians wore cosmetics, as they believed it had magical powers.  In 1400 B.C. the Egyptians used herbs and oils to help protect their skin from the harsh sun filled environment.  Thereafter the Greeks used a similar barrier to protect athletes during the games.  Lactic Acid was developed in Ancient Egypt for skin rejuvenation and used by the nobles.  It goes without say that skin care and skin protection is just as important to us as any other facet of our health and has been integral part of our lives since the dawn of time.

First and Foremost, protect yourself from UV light!!!  A lifetime of sun exposure can cause premature aging in the form of wrinkles, age spots, and a variety of skin problems, worst of which is cancer.  Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States.  There is about one death every hour from melanoma, the most viscous form of skin cancer.  Most of us assume that it is only important to protect ourselves during warmer days or when going to the beach or pool.  Yet the risk of UV exposure during the winter months can be equally high.

This is especially true when hitting the slopes.  Time can fly by when we are having a great time, and when it’s cool out there; one doesn’t really pay attention to the sun.  But all that accumulated UV exposure, over the years, can be extremely detrimental.  So definitely make that bottle of SPF part of your Ski-gear.

So how do we pick the best sunscreen?   The ideal sunscreen would completely block harmful UV rays that cause sunburn AND block those that cause damaging free radicals (what ages our skin).  It would remain effective for hours and not be harmful for the skin as it breaks down.  Finally, it would smell and feel very pleasant.    Washington DC’s, Environmental Working Group  (the EWG) has determined currently in the United States, mineral sunscreens have the best safety profile.  These products are relatively stable, do not penetrate the skin, and offer a good amount of UV protection, not available in many sunscreens sold over the counter.  Titanium and Zinc Oxide are great examples of these mineral-based sunscreens available in the US market.  Another great contender is Avobenzone, which offers wonderful UVA protection without other competing products that may disrupt natural hormones.

Weight Loss for Women

Everyone knows that sometimes it’s harder for women to lose weight than their male counterparts. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard in my office “my husband can lose 10 pounds by just not eating for a few days! It takes me forever!” Well, there is a reason for this. Women are genetically programmed differently than men for childbearing, breast-feeding, and handling more stress. For these reasons, women have a completely different body type: less but more lean muscle, less visceral (fat inside your abdomen) than peripheral fat, and a slower metabolism that is more subject to hormonal changes. However, this is not all bad! Here are some tips to take advantage of these differences to shed pounds quickly, and keep them off.

Tip #1: Smaller portions make a big difference over the long haul. Imagine cutting your calorie intake in half, but not missing them at all using some simple mental tricks! Drink a full glass of water before starting your meal, replace all the plates in your house with smaller ones (put the large plates away in the garage!), only cook one portion per person of the meal you are making, and when going out to dinner always share one order (saves money too!). All these seemingly small adjustments will add up over the course of a month, three months, and year. For women, it’s the long-term calorie deficit that makes a difference in permanent weight loss. “Quick fix” diets almost never work.

Tip #2: Can’t get to gym? Make your whole day a workout! Use every opportunity you can to move around. Do walking meetings, bike to work, take the kids to the park, or put the treadmill in front of the TV. Short bursts of activity make a huge difference in calorie expenditure for women. Committing yourself to the gym is a noble goal, but very disappointing if you consistently don’t make it there. Don’t make the gym your only physical activity for the day; rather use it as a bonus when you can fit it in.
