Move Over Coconut Oil, This is the New Miracle Ingredient That Can be Used Topically and Ingested

One natural effect of aging is the laxity of the skin. This causes fine lines and wrinkles, sagging, and other unwanted signs of aging. That said, there are certain lifestyle choices we make that can positively and negatively impact the appearance of our skin. Things like eating a poor, inflammatory diet, smoking, and excessive exposure to the sun can have detrimental effects on your skin’s appearance.

Conversely, wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, using a daily moisturizer that contains peptides and lipids, and being careful to eat a healthy, anti-inflammatory diet can all have positive impacts on your skin’s appearance.

One ingredient that we are well aware of that has incredible topical uses for soothing inflamed and burned skin is aloe vera. Applied to a sunburn, or other cut or scrape can speed healing, reduce redness and swelling, and overall calm irritation. But what you may not have known is that aloe vera can be consumed, as well. Aloe vera has been showing up as health-promoting juice shots, and even as aloe vera smoothies.

Drinking aloe vera juice has been linked to improvements and prevention of such diseases and conditions as diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, and osteoporosis. According to some sources, aloe vera juice is recommended for skin tightening, skin brightening, acne, and dry skin. It is also said to increase collagen production which can improve the texture of your skin.

Skin Care Tips For Spending Time in the Sun

We are in the midst of summer, and with only a month left before school begins and our schedules get back to normal, many of us want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. But being aware and proactive about time spent in the sun can prevent damage to your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Sunburns can be quite painful and can cause long-lasting skin problems, including cancer. UV rays from the sun actually damage the DNA of your skin cells. If you’ve ever had a sunburn that led to peeling skin, you’ve done that kind of damage.

An important fact to remember is that all skin tones can burn. Darker skin does contain more protective melanin, but there is still a point at which even the darkest skin tones will burn. The best protection is to use a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen when you’ll be going outdoors and to avoid time in direct sunlight at peak hours of the day, typically between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. You’ll want to reapply your sunscreen every two hours if spending lots of time outdoors. And if you’re sweating a lot or going in the water, you’ll need to reapply more often.

Many retailers also make clothing that contains sun-protectant, too. This is a good alternative or additional sun protection for children and adults alike.

If you are suffering from any unwanted skin conditions, Dr. Lance Hamilton at Jolie Vie Aesthetics in Bentonville, Arkansas may be able to help. Contact our office to learn more about our skin treatments and to schedule a consultation:


9 Things I Learned from Having Botox in My 20s

9 Things I Learned from Having Botox in My 20s (

Most people don’t turn to Botox until they’ve entered their thirties or forties, but it’s becoming more and more common for women and men in their twenties to consider this incredible age-defying treatment before the outward signs of aging set in. Using Botox as preventive care for their face, hands, and chest is one of the most common procedures that people in their twenties seek out, in fact.

Here are nine things that one woman who regularly got Botox injections in her twenties has to share with readers who might be curious about this super popular cosmetic procedure.

1. There is no perfect age, across the board to begin this treatment. It varies for everyone.

2. The amount you need will vary from person to person, too.

3. It’s not completely, 100 percent painless.

4. You’ll want to skip exercising right afterward.

5. A bit of bruising during recovery is totally normal and should be expected.

6. It takes between three to five days to see the results you want.

7. Your mom will notice the difference, your boyfriend probably won’t because you’ll look like yourself, just refreshed, not like a whole different person.

8. The results will last between three and five months.

9. Botox prices can vary, but it’s more important that the clinician you see is experienced than the price you are paying.

How To Get Rid of Hormonal Acne 


Hormonal acne is seriously the worst. No matter how often you cleanse your skin, what kind of products you’re using day and night, and what you’re eating, your hormones can cause eruptions all over your skin.

While getting to the core of your hormonal imbalance is probably the best solution in the long-term, there are some things you can do that will help you out in the meantime. According to dermatologists, here are the steps to take to help keep those pesky spots at bay.

1. Be ssure to cleanse thoroughly, and wipe away all makeup, dirt, and grime at the end of each day.

2. Consider taking a hormone supplement to balance out the hormones that may be causing your breakouts in the first place.

*3. Consider scheduling a regular monthly chemical peel to boost cell turnover, restore skin’s radiance, and inhibit oil production.

4. Be sure you’re not drying out the rest of your skin with your acne treatments. It’s essential to moisturize elsewhere if your medicated spot reducer is overly drying.

A Few Things You Need to Know About Botox Before Your First Appointment

By now you’ve probably crafted and assembled a fully-encompassing skin care regimen based off of advice from your friends and family, your doctors, celebrity recommended products, and items suggested by the staff at your regular skin care store. But one of the biggest emerging trends in skin care isn’t treatment, but prevention. Men and women of all ages are opting to take preventive measures to hold off signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, redness, and dryness as opposed to tackling them after they’ve already appeared.

One way many people are heading off these signs of aging is with dermal injectables like Botox. Botox, along with other brand names like Dysport, and Xeomin are formulations of injectable botulinum neurotoxin that work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that surround the injection site, effectively removing and reducing wrinkles that are already there, or increasingly commonly preventing them from forming at all.

The length of time that Botox lasts varies per patient, but on average the typical length is between three and five months. Speak with your doctor about the amount of Botox you’ll need to achieve the look you want as well as the ideal placement.
