  • What is Cellulite?

    Cellulite may be viewed as fat storage that allows women to carry pregnancies and breast feed; 90 percent of women have cellulite and the other 10 percent think they have it. While cellulite certainly isn't a serious or dangerous skin condition, those who have it may be self-conscious about the appearance of dimpled, puckered skin on areas such as the buttocks, thighs and hips. It is caused by an unevenness of the fatty tissue beneath the skin surface, according to the Mayo Clinic. 

  • How to Keep Hands Looking Young

    After years of cleaning, dishwashing or even sunbathing and driving, many women have developed a tell-tale sign of aging that isn’t on their face – it’s their hands.  

    In a recent issue of Good Housekeeping, a 52-year old reporter realized she needed hand rejuvenation to help her tired-looking, aging hands. So, over a six month period, she tried in-office and home treatments to target her problem areas: dry, red skin, age spots, loose, wrinkly skin and protruding veins. 

    Her advice? Keep hands moisturized. 

  • What Causes Varicose Veins?

    People have long speculated on what causes unsightly varicose veins, with some believing that crossing your legs when you sit for extended periods of time is the culprit. As the Mayo Clinic notes, while that may be one factor, there are other causes for these as well. 

    Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins. Any vein may become varicose, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs and feet. That's because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body.
