LIGHTNING RELEASES (3/27/2014) – WHAT: With spring right around the corner, more and more people will be venturing into the great outdoors and exposing their skin to the effects of the sun and other elements. While some may feel that the sun gives their skin that extra special “glow,” research proves that they can achieve that glow from within, and with less traumatic results.
Dr. Justin Piasecki is a board certified plastic surgeon at Harbor Plastic Surgery in Gig Harbor, Washington. In May 2014, Dr. Piasecki is scheduled to launch Piasecki, MD, the first skincare line to utilize a unique organic protein in its products – sericin silk – in an effort to create a radiant and youthful appearance while at the same time help to prevent skin cancer development. A substantial portion of the proceeds from the sale of Piasecki MD products will be donated to support opportunities for children.
An ongoing expert for The Doctors, Dr. Piasecki can provide insight into how individuals can achieve healthy-looking skin from the inside out. The doctor can also speak to the facts and science behind the most effective products and natural methods used to cleanse and moisturize one’s skin, along with other related topics including:
Eat the proper foods – Foods such as berries, celery, cucumbers, and fish high in Omega 3 fats all contain natural ingredients that help to ward off sun damage and wrinkles. Additionally, dark chocolate is a skin-friendly food that contains a number of antioxidants that help protect skin from the sun’s UV rays and free radical damage. Lastly, keeping hydrated with plenty of water cleanses the skin and allows it to absorb nutrients more easily.
Detoxify your body – Flushing out toxins inside the body will help to cleanse and heal what’s outside of it. Detoxifying can include limiting salty snacks and/or eliminating sugar and alcohol for a few days. Additionally, increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables and drinking warm lemon water daily will help to flush out the body’s toxins.
Use only natural products – Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on products that contain harmful chemicals and ingredients, seek out natural items like green tea and grape seed extract, which can help skin look younger while protecting against elements such as pollution, sun, and stress. Additionally, the antioxidants in coconut oil can help destroy free radicals and rejuvenate skin that has been damaged.
Get plenty of rest – Sleep not only affects one’s mental state but it can impact one’s physical well-being as well. Getting a good night’s rest will help reduce stress and tension and help the body to heal properly, which in turn will lead to healthy-looking skin.
Get lots of exercise – Whether it’s taking the stairs, playing tag with your kids, or parking further away from and then walking to your intended destination, 60 minutes of movement per day will make individuals healthier on the inside, which translates to a healthier outside.
