“If You Invest in Beauty, It will Remain with You All the Days of Your Life”

At my consultation, Dr. Yune gave me his recommendations for my aging face.

So what do you do if you never used sunscreen until you were 30, you washed your face with Neutrogena for years, and your only vitamin C was your morning glass of orange juice? Well, one day you wake up in your forties and your pores are huge, you have crinkles at the corner of […]

“It’s Not a Short Term Diet; It’s a Long Term Lifestyle Change”

Everyone should strive to eat a healthy diet, but let’s face it…five servings of fruits and vegetables daily? Not in my world!
