Wellness is everywhere! We see celebrities promoting different ways of staying healthy and we even see commercials about age-defying products. What do you think about the commercials that you see on television? Are you a skeptic? Each year, consumers spend billions of dollars on nutritional supplements. We see products like Intramax and Poly MVA getting gobbled up by people who believe that these supplements and vitamins are promoting wellness and helping them defy the natural aging process. Patients are bringing all sorts of bottles to their doctors and asking questions like, "What do you think of this supplement?" Or, "Do you think I should continue taking all these supplements?"
As the summer approaches, I think about how many people fail to protect their skin from sun damage. People forget about the long-term consequences of their actions and they often focus too much attention on the immediate. Interestingly, more and more consumers are getting obsessed with organic products and they even choose to wear Natural Sunscreen. Instead of spending billions of dollars on age-defying products, people should spend less time sunbathing and smoking. Sun damage and smoking causes wrinkles that won't go away with age-defying creams, lotions, or potions. So what will you be doing this summer? If I see you at the beach, I'll be under an umbrella.
