“Commotions, Emotions & ‘Magical’ Potions.”

Posted by Levine Communications Office on October 15, 2010

Did you know that over 6,000 women enter menopause every day in the US alone and by 2015, the number of menopausal women is expected to reach 1.7 billion?

Never before in the course of history has menopause been more socially relevant with thousands of “Baby Boomer” women aging at an exponentially fast rate. The number of perimenopausal and postmenopausal women in the United States alone is over 100,000,000. Despite these staggering statistics, menopause remains one of the most taboo and misunderstood of all natural occurrences facing women with a tremendous amount of confusion and misinformation amongst the general public and medical community.

LCO Client and executive producer of controversial new film Hot Flash Havoc, Heidi Houston will be premiering the trailer this week in New York so get excited and see what is in store from this humorous and very relatable film. Heidi and her team of experts including Alan Altman, M.D., a Gynecologist specializing in menopause and midlife sexuality (Harvard Medical School) will be moderating various panels and showcasing Hot Flash Havoc at the MORE Magazine Reinvention Convention and the GenConnect Sex for Life Panel Discussion in NYC October 16 thru October 19.

5 Tips for Youthful Hands

Posted by Levine Communications Office on October 10, 2010

LCO Client and Beauty Expert, Nina Sutton is always sharing the best tips when it comes to a woman’s outer appearance. Recently as the beauty expert for www.sheknows.com, Nina provided 5 helpful tips on making sure you keep your hands looking youthful. No one will know how old you are after applying some of these tricks and your hands alone will portray a younger age than you actually are.

1. Exfoliate Your Hands

Just as you exfoliate the skin on your face, you need to remove the top layer of skin on your hands to reveal the fresh skin underneath. At home, you can use microdermabrasion crystals or even 1 teaspoon of sugar combined with coconut oil. While these treatments will not remove brown spots, they will leave your skin looking smoother and softer. The key is to exfoliate on a regular basis.

2. Moisturize

If you find a moisturizer with an SPF that you love, use it all the time. This way you are replacing moisture and protecting your hands.  Sun exposure damages collagen- which is the building block of our skin.

3. Pamper Your Hands

Whenever you do the dishes, or expose your hands to a lot of water, be sure to wear gloves. Try using a thick cream like Aquaphor or any oil like olive oil or coconut oil under your gloves for a moisture treatment. Also, if you use anti-oxidant serums on your face, you can use those on your hands as well. Apply these serums at night before moisturizer and during the day before your SPF. You can even use the same hydrating masks on your hands that you use on your face.

4. Try Lasers for Brown Spots and Loose Skin

Age spots or brown spots are a tell-tale sign of aging. To remove brown spots, the best treatments are lasers.  Skin-tightening treatments help to stimulate collagen production, resulting in thicker skin.

5. Banish Veins

As your skin thins, veins in your hands can appear to “bulge” out. In scelortherapy, a mild irritant is injected into your veins and blocks the blood supply.  Although this treatment does not have a lot of downtime, it can take a few weeks to see the full results. This treatment is best for small, superficial veins. For larger veins, a better treatment is to plump the skin around the vein by injecting fat into the hand, thereby creating an even illusion. To plump the skin, doctors use either your own fat (extracted from your thigh or buttocks) or Restylane.

She has worked with performance athletes, CEO’s, and A-list celebrities from around the world, including KISS front man, Gene Simmons, Ben Stiller, Jeanne Tripplehorn, and Janeane Garofalo, to name a few. Here are some of her most useful tips to looking fabulous when getting ready for a big event.

Cut out dairy and gluten which cause a lot of people to hold on to false fat and inflammation.

Increase fiber intake as it helps with satiety. Increase water intake between meals, not with meals. Water dilutes stomach acid and can slow down digestion and impair protein synthesis.

Drink lots of green tea. Green tea helps boost metabolism, reduces stress hormones, and burns more fat.

Get a good nights sleep.

Eat vegetables that are natural diuretics such as asparagus and cucumbers.

Drink apple cider vinegar to help with acid alkaline balance.
