Tricks to take down puffy eyes-

Avoid salty foods expecially before bedtime!  Drink water before going to bed and sleep with head elevated.  In morning take a ziploc bag with ice and place on your eyes for 5 minutes.  Massage in eye cream that contains de-puffing caffeine to reduce swelling.  

"My favorite is the Vivite eye cream that contains caffeine as well as ingredients to exfoliate, reduce wrinkles and reflect light.  Not only does it help with the puffiness but also with dark circles.  Other great products are  the Obagi eye cream and gel!  Come by the office to try! You will love  it!  We all have the same problems with our eyes!"  Linda Banta, M.D. 


Just in time for summer, the Federal Drug Administration issues new rules that are intended to improve the way sun protection products are marketed and used.

FDA Issues New Rules for Sunscreen Safety

Just in time, the Federal Drug Administration has recently issued new rules that are intended to improve the way sun protection products are marketed and used. 

http://www.fda.gov/downloads/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/UCM258910.pdf

Here are a few important points to keep in mind when purchasing and using sunscreen this summer:

  • SPF only refers to protection from the sun's UVB rays. In order to prevent sunburn, premature skin aging, and skin cancer, you need broad spectrum UVB and UVA protection.
  • SPF is based on testing that uses large amounts of product on the skin. In order to be effectively protected, apply more sunscreen than you may want to, and more often than you normally would.
  • All sunscreens lose effectiveness when you sweat or swim. In these cases, reapply frequently.
  • There is no need to purchase a sunscreen with SPF higher than 50. Rather, look for broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and reapply frequently.
  • In addition to using sunscreen with SPF 30-50 daily, you should protect your body with clothing and light-blocking hats and umbrellas

ELTAMD was among the first skincare brands to comply with these new regulations, so if you're looking for the latest in safe sun protection, we've got you covered!!!
