Fact or Fiction?
To stay heart-healthy, exercise for 1 straight hour every day..

"Being physically active is important for your heart, but you don't have to carve out an hour every day to do it. The American Heart Association suggests at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity at least 5 days a week. Or you can do at least 25 minutes of more vigorous activity 3 days a week. That can be anything like walking, swimming, or biking. You can break it up into 10 or 15 minutes here and there. The goal is just that you move." - Web MD



Add a multivitamin to your daily health regimen.

People who take a daily multivitamin/mineral supplement have a lower risk of colon cancer and heart disease. And that's not all...the folic acid in your multivitamin is almost twice as absorbable than folic acid found in the food you eat.

Q: My arms, hands, and legs are dry and dull-looking. My hands even have brown spots on them. What is the best way to get soft, glowing skin in these areas while eliminating the embarrassing brown spots?

A: The skin from the neck down often gets ignored and mistreated! First, be sure to get your yearly skin care screening. We recommend Dr. Riley Greene, Board Certified Dermatologist.

Second, choose a daily exfoliating system created for the body. We love the new anti-aging body scrub from HydroPeptide. Finish with an anti-aging body cream like Rejuvenating Body Cream by Image. Specially formulated to reduce brown spots and increase collagen production. We also recommend investing in a professional body treatment like a full body exfoliant or the NEW anti-aging Body Treatment by HydroPeptide!

Ask a Therapist

You bet it does!

Wondering about the shelf life of that heap of makeup in your drawer? We all have that special cosmetics drawer that's stocked so full we can hardly close it each day. But, how much of these products do you actually use on a regular basis? Most likely, very few of them.

Cosmetics have a shelf life and chances are that the tinted, glittery mascara you purchased a few years ago for a New Year's Eve bash is long overdue. It's time to clean out that overstuffed drawer and eliminate all the "past due" makeup.

But, how are you supposed to know when to toss that mascara? No worries...we have the recommended shelf life for your most-used cosmetics. Follow these guidelines to keep your makeup fresh, clean, and infection-free.

Foundation and Concealer
Oil-free products should be replaced at least once a year, while regular moisturizing foundations and concealers will last up to 18 months.

Mascara has a short life span because it can easily transmit bacteria back and forth between the tube and your eye, which can cause painful, grossly unattractive eye infections. Typically, mascara should last about 3 months, but if it starts to dry up before that time, throw it away.

Eye Shadow
Women tend to have a spectrum of seasonal eye shadows to create numerous looks for different occasions. Fortunately, eye shadows keep well. Liquid shadows should last 1 year, while powders usually last up to 2 years.

Eye/Lip Pencils
Eye and lip pencils can be kept up to 2 years. Be sure to sharpen before each use to ensure a clean, bacteria-free tip.

Varying lip colors is probably what takes up the most room in every woman's makeup drawer. But with so many different shades of red, pink, and neutrals...can you blame us?? Thankfully, you can keep your tube lipsticks for up to 2 years.

Cream blushes will generally last for about a year, while their powder counterparts are good for 2 years.

Helpful Tip: Just like with food, if it looks or smells funny, chances are it is no longer fresh. Get rid of it. Furthermore, if you happen to get an eye infection, you will need to throw away all of your makeup...yes, all of it, to guarantee there is no repeat of that nasty infection.
