Straightening The Teeth

If you don't have perfect teeth, then consider going to a cosmetic dentist who can use Invisalign to give you the straight teeth that you desire. When you visit an Invisalign Brooklyn office, you will probably have x-rays taken of your mouth to determine how crooked the teeth are in order to develop a plan of treatment. When the dentist is satisfied with the initial survey of the mouth, the braces will be applied. These are not ordinary braces as others won't be able to see them on the teeth. 

The braces will stay on the teeth for a few months up to a few years depending on the severity of the teeth. There will be frequent examinations of the mouth to make sure the teeth are correcting as they should. Once the dentist is satisfied with the treatment, then the braces will be removed. After the braces are removed, you will see a beautiful smile that you might not have seen before. The teeth will often be stronger and whiter as you have taken care of the teeth and gums while you have had the braces on the teeth. Invisalign treatments can help improve the way you eat and talk by getting the teeth in a straight line instead of being crooked.

Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Line Review

Make 2015 the year that you FINALLY decide to stop overpaying for hair care products and start using hair care products that work just as well and in many cases work even better than their pricey counterparts.   My favorite hair care product line, hands down is The Suave Professionals Line. Their products offer ALL the same benefits as do the pricey salon product lines at a fraction of the cost.  My new favorite Suave Line is their New Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Line , which I received compliments of Weber Shandwick for review. This line is an ABSOLUTE must try if your locks are lacking in the volume department.

New Suave® Luxe Style Infusion full product line, hair styling products that give salon quality results

The first item up for discussion, the Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Weightless Blow Dry Spray. After washing my hair with one of my favorite Suave shampoos,  I spritzed my hair with the new Suave Blow Dry Spray.  This volumizing gem helps give you full, sexy, just from the salon blowout results. My locks had lots of volume and softness that lasted all day long. Plus, this product is "salon proven to volumize as well as Kerastase Resistance Volumifique Volumizing Spray"! Next up, the Suave Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Souffle Mousse. An absolute "Hair" God-send, this volumizing mousse gives me that soft, full, bouncy, model-worthy hair that I love. This mousse adds serious beautiful volume and bounce and is also "salon proven to volumize as well as Kerastase Mousse Bouffante Mousse", but with a MUCH lower price tag!

And finally, the piece d' resistance of this hair care line for me is the Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Plump Hold Hairspray!  This ultra fine (very important especially if you have fine hair) volumizing hairspray literally lifted, plumped up my hair and locked in fullness all day long. Even after I brushed my hair, it still had incredible fullness and softness. Never have I ever used a hairspray that worked this well.  When combined together, all the Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing products do a superb job at lifting, plumping and volumizing even the finest of hair without leaving hair stiff and sticky.   This product has also been salon proven "to hold as well as Kerastase Laque Dentelle Micro-Mist Fixing Hairspray." So, please check them out and let me know what you think of this line.  Till then!  B.

Increasing Profits Without Adding Expenses Through Telemedicine

As a doctor, you know how expensive it is to have a practice. There are so many costs associated with running a practice that, at times, profitability seems out of reach. Many doctors face this dilemma. They feel trapped by their love of medicine and the costs associated with that career. Thankfully, there is now an option for these doctors to generate more income with very little overhead.

Opportunity Of A Lifetime

Telemedicine jobs are available in one of the leading areas of medicine. Doctors are needed to work with patients via the Internet in a weight loss program. With the chronic obesity rate sweeping the planet, the potential for clients is enormous.

Doctors can join a network for free and receive patient referrals and these referrals turn into paying customers. One of the most successful telemedicine referral services around is MoreMedicalPracticeCash.org. These referral services can increase your patient base almost immediately.

Obesity Is Rising And Treatment Is Crucial

With all of the other medical problems that are associated with obesity, and the alarming rates at which obesity is increasing, it is easy to understand why medically assisted weight loss is the right choice for anyone. Having the assistance of a doctor can encourage good behaviors, help people stick to a weight loss plan, and improve overall health of those following the plan.

Doctors can benefit greatly from joining this type of network. Patients are eager to use this service, and because the treatment is via the Internet, the costs are nominal.

Estee Lauder's New Perfectionist Makeup Beauty Review

We put the brand's latest foundation to the test
We Tried It: Estee Lauder's New Perfectionist Makeup
This is a TotalBeauty.com Makeup article
The latest innovation in foundation? Infusing it with skin care ingredients that give long-term benefits while covering imperfections immediately. Skincare-as-makeup trailblazer Estee Lauder combined its age-defying Perfectionist serum with natural-looking foundation coverage to create Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup. Three of our editors put it to the test.

Information on the Supplement Resveratrol

The body is exposed to all types of substances and processes that can lead to cell damage and illnesses. Research has shown that many foods and food products contain compounds that may prevent or lessen the effects of exposure to harmful substances and free radicals.

Free radicals are atoms produced by the body during natural processes like fat-burning. They also may be brought into the body by exposure to pollutants such as cigarette smoke and harmful chemicals. Free radicals are of concern because they can cause cell damage that leads to cancer and other chronic health conditions. Free radicals may be a factor in aging and are thought to contribute to Alzheimer's disease. 

A compound that has shown promise in preventing and limiting the action of free radicals is resveratrol. Resveratrol is found in red grape skins, berries, peanuts and Japanese knotweed. The theory behind resveratrol being effective in stopping the cell damage caused by free radicals is based on how resveratrol works to protect the plants in which is present. 

Resveratrol found in grape skins protects the grape from sun damage and destructive fungus. Grapes in more humid environments producing more of this protective substance. This explains why in places where red wine is consumed as part of the diet are thought to be protected against some of the negative effects of free radicals. For example, the French eat foods heavier in fat but tend to suffer less from heart disease than other populations.

As people learn more about resveratrol, some think they should begin a regimen of drinking red wine. However, health professionals recognize that it is not reasonable nor responsible to suggest that everyone consume a certain amount of red wine everyday. Fortunately, individuals interested in protecting their bodies from free radicals have another option--resveratrol supplements. These supplements are a highly concentrated form of resveratrol, easy to take and reasonably priced. There have been no major side effects reported from taking resveratrol supplements, except for possible interaction with blood thinners like coumadin.

Please consult a healthcare professional before considering any dietary supplement like mentioned in this article.

Tips for Applying Your Makeup Foundation

Essential tips to unlock the foundation of your beauty
Estee Lauder Picture Perfect Makeup
This is a TotalBeauty.com Makeup article
Does your beauty routine feel a little stale? It's time to do something about it. From tips for the perfect foundation application, to tricks for enhancing your skin care routine and even ideas to help you maintain a healthy glow from the inside out, our latest series has everything you need to create a strong beauty foundation.

Losing The Weight

If you find that you are struggling to lose weight, then weight loss physicians might be able to help. There are some things that you should keep in mind when you see this kind of doctor. He is not a miracle worker. The effort of losing weight will rest in your hands just as much as his. He can help give you tips on how to lose weight as well as prescribe medications, but you will need to make lifestyle changes like eating healthier and exercising. 

Your doctor will take a detailed medial history. This is to determine if there are any medical conditions that have caused you to gain weight or not be able to lose the weight that you have gained. He might order blood work to see if there are causes that aren't visibly present. After all of the tests are done, the doctor will look over the results to figure out the best plan of action. There are some medications that you can take that will decrease your appetite. If you are severely overweight to the point that you are morbidly obese, then surgery might be a recommendation. It's important to follow all of the suggestions that the doctor makes so that you can start living a healthy life.

Beauty Box 5 - November Box Review

Beauty Box 5 has once again wowed me with their smart selection of beauty treasures.  This month's Beauty Box 5 contained the items I need to help me look dazzling this holiday season!.  The first item I wanted to talk about is one that I could not see myself without, especially during the holidays. During the holidays there are sure to be a lot of parties and photo ops. So in order to avoid any photo faux pas be sure to pack the Dentec Floss Picks in your purse, #dentek. Nothing ruins a photo more than a piece of that delicious hors'dourves lodged between your front teeth.  The Dentek Floss Picks allows you to quickly and discreetly remove any food remnants from your teeth so you can look fabulous in every shot. This one is definitely the smart girl's purse must-have!



And since there will be lots of hugging and touching this holiday season, better be sure that your skin is soft and supple. To help get your skin in tip-top condition start by using the Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash, #OneShowerChallenge. This body wash gently cleanses while leaving skin soft, supple, smooth and sexy even after one use.  To help add an additional layer of soft sexiness to your skin, try the Laura Ashley Body Butter,#lauraashley.  This decadent body butter adds instant softness to skin while leaving behind a pretty scent that lingers gently on your skin all day long.  For best results, apply while skin is still damp for seriously soft skin!

And since we are talking soft and sexy, nothing is sexier than soft flowy hair.  To help tame your tresses try the HASK Macadamia Revitalizing Shine Oil, #haskhair.  This ultra-hydrating oil is just what thirsty hair is craving.  The HASK Oil helps smooth and hydrate hair from root to tip. Plus, it smells AMAZING!

So, if all these beauty samples sound like something you want delivered right to your door then you must check out what BeautyBox5 has to offer you. And be sure to let me know what you think.  Till then!  B. Please review the disclosure and disclaimer section regarding product reviews.
