Get Glowing Skin With the Help of 3 Snacks

Green Tea

In the race against time, you may have sought ways to improve your skin’s appearance. While cleansers, creams and lotions certainly play a part in taking care of your skin, there is more to beautiful skin than external products. Outside beauty begins with how you treat your inside. So, your skin is what you eat! Here are three foods to consider that can help give your skin a luminous glow.

  1. Green Tea – Green tea has gotten a lot of attention over the past few years and for good reason. The antioxidants found in green tea help cleanse the skin by pushing out toxins. This also lends the skin more elasticity, helping skin appear more vibrant and pliable.
  2. Almonds – Obtaining beautiful skin can be as simple as eating a nutritious snack. Almonds are not only delicious, but also good for clarifying dull skin tissue. The vitamin E that almonds contain is natural fighters of free radicals. Looking for an astringent? Eat some almonds instead!
  3. Orange – Beautiful skin is as close as that morning glass of orange juice, so stock up on oranges! Vitamin C  from oranges are collagen boosters and skin becomes firmer. Say bye-bye to those bags under your eyes.

Have you found any other great snacks that are both healthy and good for your skin? Don’t keep them all to yourself, share them with us in our comment section!

Avoid Fall Weight Gain with Healthy Habits

Fall Weight Gain

Fall is officially in the air here in Leawood and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it. The fall season brings with it fabulous opportunities to try out new trends, new products, and new services at Midwest Medical,so there is plenty to look forward to this autumn.

Among all the good news this fall however, there is also a bit of bad news. According to a professor at Sam Houston State University in Texas, we actually tend to eat 200 more calories per day during the fall. This increase in calorie intake isn’t even blamed on the holiday season; it’s actually attributed to a number of reasons including the end of summer weight gain and desires for comfort food during cooler seasons.

The best way to keep this weight off is to stick to your health basics. Continue eating intentionally, staying active, and taking care of your body. When you carefully monitor your lifestyle habits, you’ll find that keeping weight off is easier than ever.

If you need a little extra help getting rid of excess weight, don’t worry – at Midwest Medical Aesthetics, we have you covered! Stop by today to chat with us about our weight loss programs and liposuction services.

Supplement Weight Loss Strategies with a Healthy Breakfast

Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast is the most commonly skipped meal.  Ironically, it is the most important meal to eat. So why should you do your best not to skip breakfast during the hustle of your morning routine?

For starters, your body goes into a state of hibernation when sleeping, and eating literally “breaks” that “fast”.  It kick starts your metabolism into high gear, gives you energy to get through the next few hours, and makes you healthier in general.  It’s one of the most effective pieces to weight loss programs.

Breakfast should keep you lean — think about 25-30% of your daily calories.  These calories should be spread out to be about 50% carbohydrates, 25% (healthy) fats, and 25% protein.  The carbohydrates provide quick energy used to both replenish your depleted stores and move you through the day.  Healthy fats such as avocado and nuts digest slowly to prevent sudden hanger pangs.  Protein keeps your body satiated (full) and allows your body’s hormones to return to normal levels.

Working with professionals like those at Midwest Medical will enable you to continue moving with your life while knowing you are in good hands.  Whether you are structuring weight loss programs or undergoing cosmetic treatments (or hair cuts!), working with licensed professionals is crucial to maintain a high level of safety, and to get your desired results!

Top 3 Beauty Myths Busted!

Beauty Myths

The first place we typically hear of the best and latest in beauty news is from our own friends and family. And so of course we’re all ears when someone has a new product or service they’re ready to dish about. Although girl talk is often a fabulous place to learn, it also tends to be the place when beauty myths flourish. Someone hears a myth, believes it, and then shares with friends. Keeping up with what is true and what isn’t is important – so we’ve gathered for you the truth about the top three beauty myths!

Myth #1 – Tweezing makes hair grow back thicker.

Actually, hair texture is much more likely to be influenced by hormones and genetics.

Myth #2 – Sleeping on your side causes wrinkles

Well sort of, sleeping on your side or on your stomach causes sleeping wrinkles that aren’t necessarily indefinite wrinkles. To cut down on these wrinkles though, try sleeping on your back or on a satin pillowcase.

Myth #3 – Regular trims make hair grow faster.

This one couldn’t be further from the truth. The pace of hair growth is determined by plenty of other variables such as diet, genetics, and overall health. Wishing this one was true? Try hair extensions!

Do you have any other beauty “secrets” that you think might be myths? Share them with us and we’ll dig up some research for you!

Get the Best Eyebrows for Your Face Shape!

Heart Shaped Face

One of the wonderful things about our bodies is how each and every one is so different. We each create our own beauty routines based on different needs. Some of us may be hoping to lose a few inches around the waist, while others are hoping to add a few inches around the chest! Whatever the items are on your beauty wish list are, they must be customized to suit your unique needs. One of the most obvious examples of this type of customization is your eyebrow shaping which depends greatly on the shape of your face.

Here’s a quick rundown of the best eyebrow shaping for your face’s shape.

For a square face, a thicker brow line is good option for maintaining a natural and balanced look.

For a round face, an arched eyebrow is the best way to create an oval look that opens up your eyes and elongates the face.

For a longer face, the best eyebrows shape would be a longer one. A low arch allows the face to be opened up sideways.

For a heart shaped face, try shaping brows into a round arch to soften the pointed look of a chin.

Looking for more tips and expertise on the latest cosmetic tips and procedures, stay tuned to the Midwest Medical Aesthetics Blog and contact us by calling 913.327.7175 to schedule an appointment today!

How to Get Rid of Sunburn and Keep Your Party Face On

Beauty Tips

You might have already run into this issue so far this summer. It is, after all, one of the easiest beauty pitfalls to fall into during this sunny season and we don’t even have to tell you about the long term damage it does to your skin. If you think we’re referring to a sunburned face, you’re exactly right!

Not only is a facial sunburn pesky, but it also tends to ruin our make up plans. To get rid of the redness and keep your party face on, just follow these tips!

First, begin with a clean face (use a natural, soothing face wash) and rub ice on the affected areas to refresh the skin. This reduces the swelling and redness.

Then, apply a layer of an aloe vera moisturizer which will help your face heal more quickly.

Next, when you can’t get away with not wearing make up, apply a green tinted primer followed by a yellow based foundation. These products offset the redness of the sunburn and bring your face back to a natural color. Then apply your make up as usual.

Have any of our readers had to deal with this situation so far this summer? Did you find any other great fixes? Share them with us below!

One Trick to Instantly Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Eyeliner Tricks

Though we love new products and services to make our skin feel brighter and younger, sometimes a simple make up trick is all it takes to give your face a boost. That’s what we recently learned anyway in a recent Glamour story about Heidi Klum.

The model is known for her fabulous style and great looks, so any insight into her beauty routines is always worth a mention. To make our eyes look bigger, many of us use special mascaras, eyelash curlers, or shadow techniques, which are all fantastic. But if you look closely, Heidi uses an extra trick – she applies light (white or light peach) eyeliner on her bottom lash line to give her eyes a brighter, bigger look. It’s a very subtle change but the effect is dramatic!

Sharing little beauty tricks like this is one of the reasons we love having a blog for you all. If you haven’t signed up yet, be sure you’re receiving your Midwest Medical Blog posts right in your inbox each week.

Do you have any beauty tricks of your own? Don’t keep them all to yourself – we’d love to hear them!
