Power Ingredient – Retinol

Retinol is a skincare ingredient derived from vitamin A.  It is used to unclog pores, reduce fine lines, even out discoloration, and smooth the skin.  Prescription formulas use stronger Retinoids, providing the most impressive results in as little as 4 weeks.  But you don’t have to see the dermatologist to reap the benefits.  Over the counter skincare products can contain retinol with a lesser potency.  These results are seen in 2-3 months.  When choosing an over the counter product a moisturizer, gel, serum, or lotion will give your skin optimal benefit.

Botox Injections in the Stomach Don’t Help Weight Loss

I was reading a few months ago about some interesting work that had been done to help patient lose weight by injecting Botox into their stomachs.  The logic was that the stomach muscles would relax and therefore not empty the gastric contents very quickly, thereby causing early satiety and eventually weight loss.  Seems like a plan, right?  Too bad the latest studies contest the conclusions. A new study performed at the Mayo Clinic was not able to replicate that kind of outcome.  The study was recently published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, the official clinical practice journal of the American Gastroenterological … Continue reading
