Health & Beauty Tip – Week of March 28th

The Best Way to Get Silky Legs

The very best way to get silky smooth legs when you shave is to exfoliate first. This will remove the dead skin cells and allow for a closer shave. My favorite product for this is by a company called 100% Pure and it is the Cocoa Kona Coffee Body Scrub. It smells heavenly (like coffee and chocolate!) and it is a very clean product. It has nothing synthetic in it.

Wet your legs, apply the scrub and massage gently for about 15 seconds, rinse and then apply your favorite shaving cream. Always use a sharp razor for best results. Dull razors can cause irritation.

If your skin seems to be sensitive after shaving you can apply some lotion that has 1% hydrocortisone. Dermarest is a good brand and can be found at the local drug store.


Pump up Your Smoothie!

For those who like to make a smoothie for breakfast try adding some raw organic spinach and a few large leaves of organic Romaine lettuce.

These 2 vegetables do not have very strong flavors and when blended up in a smoothie with some fruit they really are not detectable. You can get 2 or 3 servings of daily vegetables first thing in the morning!

Make your smoothie with non-fat milk or almond milk instead of fruit juice. Fruit  juices are high in sugar and calories.  

Another great alternative that I use is coconut milk. It is rich and creamy and you can find it at HEB along with the regular milk. Just be sure to get the unsweetened. Keep bags of frozen organic strawberries and blueberries so you always have fruit on hand.


ECO-Friendly Tip

Turn off the water when brushing your teeth. You waste up to 5 gallons of water by letting it run!





DENTAL TIP: Crooked Teeth can Shorten your Life Span

Traditional dentures can be challenging to wear, limit food choices and can be embarrassing (just ask someone who has had their denture fall out or slip in a public setting).

Dr. Camacho is teamed up with one of the city's top oral surgeons for a new implant supported denture that can be done in as little as 3 to 4 appointments. It is not removable and the patient is restored to 90% function! Traditonal dentures restore about 10% of normal function.

No more taking your teeth out at night, no more limiting your diet to soft foods and no more embarrassing mishaps.
