The dog days of summer are just around the corner and that means lazy days at the pool, paddle boarding at the lake or just relaxing on the deck with a good book.
But first, you might feel like you need to drop some of that extra weight you put on during the winter or get rid of the dry, damaged skin that comes with the harsh, cold air. Either way, Timeless Medical Spa and Weight Loss Clinic is here to help. They have provided these tips to get you looking and feeling beautiful just in time for the summer sun.
Do you feel like your weight has fluctuated as much as the weather these past few months? If so, Timeless has a very effective weight management program that is based on a higher protein, lower calorie approach to effective weight loss. When clients first come to Timeless they go through an orientation and then a program is designed based on their own body composition. Everybody is different and no one program fits all.
“The body composition tells us how much body fat, water and lean tissue they have. It also tells us how many calories they burn per day,” owner Debbie Williams said.
The patient comes in weekly for a weigh-in and visit with the doctor. The doctor can look over the patient’s lab work to see if there is a medication that they need or if there is a medication that they are taking that is making them put on weight.
“It’s a good program,” Williams said. “Weight loss is 80 percent what you eat and 20 percent exercise, so we do encourage people to exercise.”
Williams also explains that spring is the season to start eating those fresh fruits and vegetables and to be prepared when attending picnics and barbecues. The grilling is good, but overdoing it on sauces and dressings is not. Too many picnics will make you pile on the pounds.
Getting rid of damaged and dry winter skin
Cleanse: Cleaning your face every single day, morning and night, using high-quality products is important to healthy-looking skin.
Exfoliate and Hydrate: If your skin is feeling dry and flaky, you may want to consider adding exfoliation to your skincare routine. Timeless Medical Spa and Weight Loss Clinic has heavy duty mud masks and hydrating and anti-aging masks that sell for $8-$10.
If you feel like a mask just isn’t going to cut it, it might be a good idea to try a chemical peel or a micro peel.
“Those are really, really good because they actually slough off the dead dry skin to allow moisturizers to get into the skin,” Williams said.
Moisturize: Using a good moisturizer on your face will have long-lasting effects.
“It’s worth spending the money on good facial products,” she said. “It’s worth the investment.”
Protect: It doesn’t take much for the sun to destroy your skin. Sunscreen is very, very important. You can’t put it on first thing in the morning and be done. You need to continue to apply it throughout the day because it only lasts a few hours.
Unwanted Hair Removal
The summer months call for shorts, tank tops and the chore of everyday shaving. But have you ever considered laser hair removal? Timeless carries the latest technology in laser hair removal. Laser hair removal can be done anywhere on the body — the face, back of neck, underarms, bikini area, legs or wherever you grow hair. It usually takes around six treatments, but at Timeless they sell the client six, but give them eight.
