As summer approaches outdoor activities increase and so do sunburns. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and can be diagnosed and treated easily. By using sunscreen and visiting your dermatologist you can help decrease the risk of skin cancer.
Having recently been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, I know the importance of these regular check ups and the use of sunscreen when going outdoors. Please, for your own health, get your skin checked out.

I'll be honest, I don't enjoy exercising. Sneak in 50 squats, 50 "pilates 100" type sit-ups, etc., while watching your favorite show or getting ready in the morning, whenever you can. I have to trick myself into getting extra exercise in. Hopefully I won't figure it out. :)
My Elbows and Knees were developing hard patches of dry scaly skin due to ageing.My daughter-in-Law Maithili is a Dermatologist/Cosmetologist and I consulted her for my problem.She suggested gently massaging the trouble spots with any good quality rich,nourishing Foot Cream----only till the Cream gets absorbed 2-3 times everyday. I do this immediately after my Bath,in the Afternoon and just before going to Bed each night.This has helped immensely and though the process is slow it really works
She advised me to just massage the Cream in gentle circular strokes till it all gets absorbed into the Dry Area.She also said not to scrub it with even a gentle exfoliator as this worsens the condition.
