Stick To Resolutions - 9 Easy Ways

So, tell me:  How successful have you been keeping to past New Years Resolutions?  Perhaps you’ve given up making them because you hate it when you quit and fail?  Same with me; but this year, I’m going to try some new stick-to-it methods that are shown to be very effective.  

People who make a living studying other people have discovered that you will be far more successful keeping at something you want to do if certain conditions are met when you undertake a project or commitment, and if you engage in some (or all) of these ideas:

Getting and Giving Gifts - New Ideas

Giving & Getting Gifts—New ideas 

Here’s what a lot of us do:  We buy something, anything, preferably pre-wrapped.  Then maybe we stick a bow and a card on it and watch incredible joy spread on the face of the person you give it to (I’m being a bit sarcastic here).    It might be easy to give gifts that way, but then what’s the point and where’s the joy? Giving a gift shouldn’t feel like a chore or something you have to do just because it’s that time of year, and it should give you as much pleasure as getting one.

How not to gain weight this season - 12 Tips

Posted by Dana Ramos on December 1, 2016

Whenever I read about diets, I get frustrated because they almost invariably overlook two of the most important things about maintaining or losing weight: One is that Diets Don’t Work, because once you go off a diet, you start eating the way you used to, and then the weight comes back.  In other words, you should never diet; you should change the way you eat and think about food as a complete lifestyle change.  And the other

Have you seen your skin under a woods lamp? Its a horror show!

Posted by Jennifer Tilney CEO Platinum Skin Care on November 10, 2016

Have you ever had the opportunity to look at your skin under a UV Woods Lamp? It is a simple - mostly painless (and I only say that because of what you may FIND under that lamp can be painful) procedure where you sit in a dark room and they shine a special light on your clean, un-moisturized skin. This lamp can detect bacterial or fungal skin infections, and also skin pigment disorders such as vitiligo and other skin irregularities like sun damage.

Looking And Feeling Great from A to Z

Posted by Dana Ramos on November 1, 2016

Looking and Feeling Great, from A to Z 

A fun guide (there might be a quiz) J

A    is for   Attitude:   As they say ‘attitude is everything!’  Ever see people who have lines etched in their skin in permanent scowl?  If you carry a negative attitude your face will show it, and over time it is etched into your skin. 

B is for Beauty, inside and out:  Just like attitude, beauty radiates from within.  When you feel good, you look good and when you look good, you feel good.  This goes hand-in-hand with attitude.

C is for Vitamin C:  which has long been a staple during virus-season.  C is also for Care, as in skin care.  To get free professional advice tailored exactly for your skin, click here.

D is for Diet:  What you put in your body is what will show and

10 Bad Habits You Have That Are Ruining Your Skin!

Posted by Jennifer Tilney CEO Platinum Skin Care on October 21, 2016

Listen, we don't want you to do anything that will hurt your chances of having the most beautiful skin that you can have, so we want to give you some TIPS on things you just might be doing that are bad, bad, bad!! 


1. Clean your makeup brush! Bacteria and dead skin cells can build up on your makeup brushes. Use a mild facial cleanser and warm water to rinse your brushes every week.*Personally, I wash my liquid foundation brush daily, but with powders you can wait and wash every few weeks. 

2. Picking at your pimples. This might make you feel better for a quick second. But picking, popping or squeezing can actually cause infection (your hands are dirty) and can cause scarring. Better to use a drying lotion and/or a peel to control your acne.

A little makeup gives a lot of Wow! Quick and easy tips.

Or maybe you have no time in the mornings and just don’t want to deal with it. For the fun of it, let’s look at what you might like to do with just a little makeup to accent your facial features either before or after you have achieved your skin goals. 

I’ll stick with general ideas that work for most people, regardless of age or skin color.  Keep in mind that makeup counter salespeople are often glad to show you all kinds of makeup hints and tricks—let them help you but don’t feel obligated to buy all the makeup they will inevitably try to sell you; it is their job, after all!

Summer left—and took your good skin with it.  How to get it back (with Dr. David Bank)

Oh, Summer, how we love thee when you give our skin a golden glow with rosy cheeks—but you are fickle! When you slip away, you often take our nice skin with you, leaving us with sun spots, rashes, bug bites that leave long-lasting discoloration, and dry, dull skin.
