Skinspirations Details Bridal Beauty Touch-UpsTop 5 Ways to Look Your Best


For many brides, looking and feeling their best on their wedding day is just as important as the venue or dress. As a result, cosmetic procedures are often making the wedding to-do list. As cosmetic procedures become increasingly popular among todays brides, many cosmetic facilities are now offering bridal packages to help women look their best on the big day. Skinspirations, a non-surgical cosmetic center in Tampa Bay, explains which procedures are essential for brides-to-be.

According to a recent survey, brides are now taking more time to plan their weddingsmany start over a year before the big day, which leaves them ample time to achieve a perfect wedding day look (1). But for women with less time to plan, Skinspirations suggests considering the following minimally invasive options that require little or no downtime:


a.Benefits: Smooth, wrinkle-free skin and/or higher arched eyebrows (if requested).

b.When to start: Begin six months prior, and repeat as recommended.


a.Benefits: Detoxified and rejuvenated skin, resulting in a smoother appearance.

b.When to start: Can be done up to the day before the wedding.

3.Latisse Eyelash Treatment

a.Benefits: Doubled eyelash fullness.

b.When to start: Four months before wedding.

4.Regular Skincare Treatments

a.Benefits: Clearer, smoother, more even skin.

b.When to start: Six months before wedding.

5.Detox/HCG Diet

a.Benefits: Detoxes rid the body of toxins, and can also aid weight loss, which helps brides achieve a slimmer look for the big day.

b.When to start: At least 90 days before your wedding.

Dr. Cynthia Elliott, owner of Skinspirations, is a former emergency and trauma doctor who has been performing minimally-invasive procedures in Tampa Bay for the last several years. With a practice devoted exclusively to cosmetic and laser procedures, Dr. Elliott is often sought out to perform pre-nuptial treatments.

Beautiful skin exudes confidenceexactly what women want on their wedding day, said Dr. Elliott. Many brides are seeking natural, subtle results that make them look refreshed.

Beauty Versus the Beast: Common Mistakes to Avoid

While the above procedures can do much to improve the quality of the skin, Dr. Elliott warns against the following common mistakes that can undo the effectiveness of the procedures:

Avoid the sun and wear SPF every day. Too much UV radiation can lead to wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation.
Dont pick at your skin. Picking can cause blemishes to worsen.
If you have sensitivities, alert your practitioner before any procedures. Allergic reactions can cause unsightly side effects on the big day.
Dont get too many treatments at oncebombarding your skin with several products wont give you faster results, and could potentially cause an adverse reaction.
Dont have unreal expectations. Fillers and facial treatments can only do so much to change the quality of your skin.

When it comes to pre-nuptial procedures, Dr. Elliott also cautions against waiting until the last minute.

Time is of the essence, said Dr. Elliott. You want to ensure that you make a full recovery in time for the wedding dayfor the best possible results, schedule a consultation before deciding on any procedures.

Sustainable Builders Working Group Hosts Jason LaFleur and Michael Hobbs

Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

No matter where people live or where people work, people are impacted by buildings. Buildings exist all around. Whether it is the office building that people work in, the commercial building that people shop at, or the residential building that people live, buildings exist all around.

One lesser known fact is that buildings not only impact the environment, they also impact people’s health. Think about it. On any given day, how many hours are is the average person inside of a building? The average person is inside of a building for approximately 12 to as a many as 18 or more hours a day. That is a significant amount of time to be inside and likely most people do not even know if the building is healthy or not. Specifically, Chicago metro area has one the highest asthma rates in the country. Granted, there are other causes of asthma than buildings, but buildings are a significant contributor. A recent statistic from the Chicago Conservation Corp indicated that if just 1 in 10 homes used Energy Star appliances, the benefit would be the same as planting 1.7 million trees. Clearly, energy consumption matters.

As the awareness of the impact of buildings on people’s health and the health of the planet grow, the importance of understanding the impact of building design, construction and operation increases. In the past decade, it has regularly been cited that buildings account for 72% of all electric use in the United States. Furthermore, early research results point to the positive improvements that result in employee health, workplace satisfaction and even creativity from working in a high-performance or green building. Obviously there is still a lot more research to be undertaken to fully comprehend the impact, but early indications are healthier is better.

On Wednesday, May 29, 2013, Jason LaFleur, LEED AP, and Michael Hobbs, SRA, RAA, LEED GA, are speaking at the Sustainable Builders Working Group hosted by the Chicago Community Loan Funds Building for Sustainability program. The Sustainable Builders Working Group is meeting at 4pm, 29 E Madison Street, Suite 1700, Chicago, IL 60602.

Enterprising investors, developer, builders and home owners are actively creating green & high-performance buildings, designing green & high-performance buildings, living in green & high-performance buildings and working to create the possibility that all new buildings will be high-performance. As these enterprising individuals design a new future unlike the past, they are creating whole new industries of products, processes and perspectives on building construction.

Understanding the impact and benefit of green and high performance buildings is a point of beginning. Come learn how practitioners and appraisers address, assess and evaluate green & high-performance buildings and energy efficient improvements. “As adoption of green and high-performance buildings increases, there will be a large demand for those skilled in this specialty, said Michael Hobbs.

The mission of the Chicago Community Loan Fund is to provide flexible, affordable and responsible financing and technical assistance for community stabilization and development efforts that benefit low- to moderate-income neighborhoods, families and individuals throughout Chicago. CCLF was founded in 1991 by a group of visionary social-investment advocates and continues to provide a forum for community partners, developers, architects and urban planning professionals to address the needs of the community.

A certified Pilates professional since 1997, Fisher-Discount now offers her clients and special groups customized Pilates training in her Bucks County studio as well as on site programs for groups depending on their specific requirements.

Over the last several years, I have been working with seniors in Trenton, NJ, and with people with Multiple Sclerosis in the Bucks County area. Participants in the sessions are astounded at the mobility they have been able to achieve, said Fisher-Discount.

I truly believe with the right instruction, adaptation, and focus each individual has the capacity to improve their flexibility and strength, added Fisher-Discount. Everyone can benefit from a stronger back. Its easy to achieve with guidance, and if the individual is committed and diligent about building his or her core, she continued.

The Pilates method of exercise was developed and named after Joseph Pilates, who initially created a series of exercises to rehabilitate veterans returning from World War I. Central to the Pilates method is the development and strengthening of the core, or powerhouse. This group of muscles is comprised of the abdominals, obliques, lower back and glutes, and working together, what gives the body its core strength and proper alignment.

In 1993, crippling back pain left the certified AFAA step-aerobics and spinning instructor writhing in agony, and unable to stand or move without tremendous distress. When all other solutions and pain-relief medications failed, she refused to accept a surgical solution and began to research alternative therapies to relieve back pain and become whole again. She discovered that the answer and ideal treatment for developing a strong, pain-free back was through Pilates.

Through her love of Pilates, hundreds of people have discovered pain-free mobility. Currently, Edye is developing multiple instructional Pilates products to assist her clients and others live the mobile and healthy lifestyle they desire.
