Wake Up With Better Skin:
1. Create a Comfortable Environment:
RealSelf.com Contributor and Board Certified Dermatologist Joel Schlessinger revealed that if wrinkles are a top concern, consider a new sleeping position. So-called "sleep wrinkles" are the natural result of pressing the face against a pillow every night. The best way to avoid sleep wrinkles is to sleep on your back, which prevents your skin from coming in contact with your pillow. This sleep position also has other health benefits, including less neck pain and better back alignment.
Lastly cooler temperatures often mean less moisture in the air, which may mean drier, tighter, more uncomfortable skin. To avoid irritation, use a humidifier and always set the unit below 60% humidity. Otherwise, you'll wake up to dewdrops, not dewy skin.
2. Consider Using LED Light Therapy Treatment:
Instantly transform skin with Truth Vitality Renew LED Light: The first FDA cleared device for the full treatment of acne and wrinkles. Product: Truth Vitality Renew LED Light,
3. Invest in Better Ingredients:
Three of my top ingredients to incorporate in for better skin are: Glycolic Acid to refine skin and improve it's texture, Vitamin C to brighten and erase fine lines/wrinkles/pigmentation and AHA's to shield and protect skin. Product: Anew Re-texturizing Peel, Anew Vitamin C Serum, Anew AHA Refining Cream,
Beauty Do's and Don't's
1. Don't Cake On Makeup:
With the summer heat, we want long-lasting makeup that leaves a natural finish on the face. Try Mai Couture's Makeup Sheets, they're lightweight, give a flawless application and are easy to stow away when you're on-the-go this summer. Product: Mai Couture Makeup Sheets, www.mai-couture.com
2. Don't douse yourself in your summer fragrance:
Instead of walking into a cloud of fragrance, try placing an essential oil-based perfume around specific areas of the body. Heat activates perfume, so you'll want to place perfume around the body's pulse points (where the heart rate can be felt and blood can warm). Product: Spadaro Fragrance, http://www.spadaro.co
3. Do Attempt a Matte Lip:
Matte lipsticks are one of 2016's biggest makeup trends, but how you apply can determine how the product will look on the lips. Be sure to exfoliate prior to application, add a liner first to define the outer edges of the lip and add contrast. Apply in just a few simple swipes, do NOT layer on the product. Product: Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color, available at drugstores nationwide.
4. Do Embrace the Masking Trend:
Masking is a rather effective, fast solution for getting radiant, youthful-looking skin. Opt for masks that are specifically formulated for targeting signs of aging to get best results. Product: Environ® Intensive Revival Masque, $81, dermaconcepts.com
5. Don't forget to make a statement:
It's important to make a statement with your makeup and fashion. With the upcoming election, show your support for your favorite candidate with a House of Hillary shirt. Product: House of Hillary, www.houseofhillary.com

#1: Food Borne Bacteria: Food borne illnesses or "food poisoning" escalate in the summer due to warmer weather. Each year 48 million Americans contract a food borne illness and 3,000 will die. Bacteria like Salmonella enteritidis, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Clostridium botulinum,
and Campylobacter are present throughout the environment in soil, air, water, and in the bodies of people and animals. These microorganisms grow faster in the warm summer months. Most food borne bacteria grow fastest at temperatures from 90 to 110 degrees F. Bacteria also need moisture to flourish, and summer weather is often hot and humid. Prevent food poisoning by: Washing hands and kitchen countertops frequently; avoiding cross-contamination of food in coolers; cooking at safe temperatures (poultry at 165 degrees F; beef, pork, lamb and veal to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F), refrigerate promptly (don't eat leftovers or takeout if it has been out of refrigeration for more than 2 hours); and when in doubt, toss it out.
2: Bladder Bacteria: They are the most common bacterial infections in the developed world and there are more than 7 million cases a year in the United States (for both men and women). If left untreated, UTIs can lead to the infection of the kidneys or worse. A new study finds that severe UTIs peak in the summertime especially among young women (ages 18- 40) due to dehydration, an increase in sexual activity and humidity that can trap moisture. Antibiotics are often prescribed for UTIs but are not a long-term solution and frequently rank as one of the top reasons we have a growing superbug problem. Prevent UTIs by: drinking lots of water, voiding urine regularly and completely, avoiding wearing wet bathing suits or damp gym clothes for longer than necessary; and taking a concentrated cranberry supplement daily.
#3-Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria: Known as superbugs,
these drug-resistant strains of bacteria (Klebsiella pneumoniae and MRSA) kill 23,000 Americans each year according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. New research suggests that there may be seasonal preference for MRSA in children with more frequency of infection in the summer months. Prevent superbugs by: avoiding the use of antibiotics for treating viral infections such as colds and flu and related ear infections; and boosting your immune system with a medicinal mushroom supplement ingredient called active hexose correlated compound, or AHCC, which has been clinically proven in several studies to fight bacterial infection including the lethal K. pneumoniae that is a frequent cause of hospital-acquired infections.
