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!

Getting the Low Down on Summer Skin Care

Summer Skincare

One of the most essential aspects of our beauty routines is maintaining our skin. After all, make up can only go so far and without proper skin care, even the best make up can fall short. That’s why we consider sunscreen one of the ultimate ingredients to a proper beauty regimen, and especially during the summer, sun protection is invaluable.

To protect your skin from the sun this summer, here are a few sunscreen tips from Self Magazine!

Check the Expiration – If you aren’t able to find the expiration date on the bottle, its better to play it safe and toss you sunscreen after one year.

Rub in the Spray Sunscreen – Since its harder to see spray on sunscreen, make sure that an even layer is sprayed on (you should be able to see the shiny layer) and then rub it in for optimum coverage.

Reapply even with Make Up – Reapplication of sunscreen is so important, so don’t skimp out just because you’re wearing make up! Simply add on a layer of tinted SPF – this will keep your skin protected and your make up flawless.

You’ll also find that our ColoreScience Pro collection includes cosmetics recommended by dermotologists to protect against environmental factors such as the sun. Learn more about these skincare options and more by calling 913.327.7175!

5 Ways to Keep Up Appearances While On the Go


During the busy summer season, there’s no doubt that we will all be on the go. Whether it’s a fabulous coastal vacation or just a day of running errands, its important to keep yourself polished and your  body nourished. From someone who knows a thing or two about staying busy, E! Entertainment host Giuliana Rancic has a few tips on what we can do to keep up appearances this summer.

  1. Make Water Your Drink of Choice – “I’m not a big water person, but I force myself to keep drinking it on the plane. For every hour I’m in the air, I drink eight to 10 ounces to keep my skin from drying out.” Tip: Try our Water Flavoring Sprays to make drinking it a little easier.
  2. Lather Up on Sunscreen – Guiliana suggests an oil-free sunscreen with a high SPF to avoid having those baby freckles show up, which can make your skin look aged.
  3. Stay Bronzed – Keeping a bronzer on hand allows you to give your face a quick glow, making your skin look healthier.
  4. Keep Lip Gloss Handy – Even when you don’t have time to apply all of your make up, wearing a simple gloss instantly adds color to your face.
  5. Bring Extra Hair Ties – For those emergencies when you need a quick pony tail, bun, or braid, hair ties are a life saver.

We’re sure there are many more ideas that our readers have for looking good on the go, so feel free to share them with us in the comment section below!

Dieting Tips that Dispel Myths Inspired by Livestrong.com

Weight management is a goal that requires strategy and active efforts and should ultimately result in a lifetime of healthy living, not just a month of losing pounds. Jumping into weight loss with the latest crash diet may actually make you gain weight in the long-run, especially if you develop unhealthy habits in the process. From Livestrong.com, here are some helpful tips for approaching weight loss that dispel some of the myths that fad diets create.

  • Slight diet changes at the beginning will give you the momentum to successfully make bigger changes later on.
  • Avoid lots of juices and beverages (diet or not) that contain empty calories or fake sweeteners. Choose water, the ultimate health promoting liquid.
  • Eating low-calorie, nutrient-rich snacks between meals will help you eat smaller portions at mealtimes while boosting your metabolism.
  • Balance and moderation is the key, so be careful not to deprive yourself too much. Allowing an occasional sweet treat will help you avoid binging later on.
  • Remember to forgive yourself if you slip up. Focus on why you want to lose weight and your success to keep going.

We offer a wide variety of weight loss solutions here at Midwest Medical Associates in Leawood, Kansas including diet programs such as HCG, diet snacks and supplements as well as safe, non-surgical laser liposuction. Visit the MMA website to see our full list of weight loss products and services.

Defeating Diet Downfalls: Social Situations & Being Too Nice

Was the greasy, junk food a bigger rival than a football team for you this past Super Bowl Sunday? It’s events like these that remind us what an influence environment has on our eating habits. We can all admit to having ditched our diets to eat what our friends or family are eating. Whether it’s too much concern about manners when someone prepares a dish for you or too little concern about your motivation to lose weight, these are the moments that can throw any hard work you may have put in, straight down the garbage disposal.

A recent article in Prevention Magazine reports on a fascinating study that shows how being a people pleaser can contribute to weight gain or inability to lose weight.

“The research found that people-pleasers (those who reported worrying about hurting other people, frequently putting others’ needs before their own, and being sensitive to criticism…sound familiar?) tended to overeat in social settings in an effort to make other people feel more comfortable—and that overeating led to unwanted calories.”

We all have weaknesses when it comes to dieting, but now you can recruit Midwest Medical Aesthetics in Leawood, Kansas to finally achieve weight loss victory! With cosmetic treatments and procedures both surgical and non-surgical as well as the industry’s leading diet programs including HCG, MMA can help you defeat that stuck scale and win the figure of your dreams. With our help, you’ll be able to enjoy your social life rather than stress about it! Visit the MMA website to see our selection of weight loss services and products.

Popularity of Cosmetic Procedures for Men Continues to Increase

To all of our male readers out there who are considering cosmetic surgery, you are not alone. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ 2010 surgery statistics, the number of cosmetic surgeries performed on men has increased substantially since 2009. Here is an excerpt from a recent PR Web article reporting on the findings . . .

The top surgical procedures for men were nose reshaping, eyelid surgery and liposuction. In terms of minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures, Botulinum Toxin Type A (i.e., Botox™ and Dysport) took fist place, with 337,000 procedures performed on men in 2010 alone.

Cosmetic surgeons must have the experience and skill to be able to accommodate beard growth, skin thickness and body type. These are the factors that are crucial to meeting the goals of male patients while achieving results that look natural and youthful with minimal discomfort and required down time.

If you are a male in the Kansas City who would like to learn more about hair transplant, skin tightening, liposuction or another non-invasive cosmetic procedure, contact Midwest Medical Aesthetics today at 913.327.7175 with your questions or come by the center for a complimentary consultation at 11213 Nall Avenue, Suite 140 in Leawood, Kansas.
