Protecting and perfecting your skin
RENOWNED dermatologist Jeanine Downie, M.D., of Image Dermatology has some advice for Hispanic women on keep- ing their skin soft, smooth and protected. “Hispanic women have specific skin- care needs,” says Dr. Downie. “My patients always want to know how to achieve an even skin tone without overdrying their skin or further darkening brown skin spots.” To achieve flawless-looking skin, she suggests choosing skin care products with at least one of the following key ingredients: glycolic acid, SPF 30 and hydroquinone.
• “Patients are always asking how they can get Salma Hayek’s and Jennifer Lo- pez’s smooth skin tone and even texture,” Dr. Downie reports. She recommends washing your face with a gentle exfoliator that contains glycolic acid, which helps improve the skin’s appearance by evening tone and texture. Another easy trick? Use a warm, damp washcloth to softly remove dead skin cells.
Follow cleansing with both a facial and a body moisturizer to keep skin hydrated and looking soft. It’s a good idea to look for products that provide 24-hour mois- turization and contain nourishing natural ingredients such as shea butter, which helps restore skin’s elasticity, and olive oil, which attracts and retains moisture. Dr. Downie recommends the award-winning AMBI® SOFT & EVEN™ Creamy Oil Lotion, which was recently named “Pro- ducto Estrella” in People en Español’s “2010 Star Product Awards.” • Forgoing sunscreen puts Hispanic women at risk for skin cancer, increases the effects of aging and further darkens dark spots.
Always look for products that contain SPF 30 or higher; they’ll not only protect your skin from burning but also keep skin
HERE’S food for thought: Helping your child succeed in school may be as easy as sitting down for a family meal. Studies suggest that family meals play a key role in raising high-achieving, healthy and well- adjusted children.
When families eat together and talk with children, they set a pattern for healthy habits with benefits that last a lifetime. Academic Success
Frequent family meals are linked with being successful in school. A University of Illinois study found that children ages 7 to 11 who did well in school and on achieve-

GUEST crosses the threshold of the door and arrives at a big, loud party. Does she make a grand entrance or does she quietly greet other guests on her way to the kitchen, where she checks on the busy hostess and offers her help? The answers to 10 questions like that can help you determine your “nut” per- sonality in an online quiz. Inspired by a study done by the founder of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, it’s a lighthearted approach to personality profiling. You just go to the Fisher Nuts website (www.fishernuts.com
) or Facebook fan page

) and answer multiple choice questions such as: How do you feel at home? How do you feel at work? What is your personal motto? What would your perfect day be? What did you really want to say to that person? How you reply can tell you which of five types of nuts you resemble: • Salted Peanuts: dramatic extroverts who crave novelty and thrive as the center of attention. They are easily bored with the usual routine and, while charming in social situations, are sensitive to criticism and rejection. These are people to take to a party. They probably love roller coasters and karaoke. • Almonds: scrupulous, conscientious, moral perfectionists who have high stan- dards for themselves and others. While intensely motivated, they tend to become overcommitted at work or home, taking on more projects than they can comfortably complete. A hands-on approach to problems makes almond lovers excellent workers. • Pecans: devoted, loyal, true friends. Overly generous, pecan lovers will consider
looking beautiful and even toned. “You should wear sunscreen throughout the year, rain or shine, regardless of how light or dark you are,” cautions Dr. Downie. • Finally, hydroquinone is the smart
woman’s secret weapon for battling brown spots due to hyperpigmentation. “Hydro- quinone is the ‘gold standard’ in effective skin lightening and safely fades dark spots,” explains Dr. Downie. “The highest percentage you can get over the counter is 2 percent, which you can find in products such as AMBI® Fade Cream.” (NAPSI) ■

ment tests generally spent large amounts of time eating meals with their families. Research by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA) also found that teens who ate with their families most often were more likely to get As and Bs in their classes.
Research also supports a link between family meals and nutrition. A Harvard Uni- versity study published in the Archives of Family Medicine found that families who ate together almost every day generally

others’ needs before their own. Dependable, they are most comfortable with the usual routines of life. They are tenacious, committed team players who don’t require adulation, being satisfied sharing accolades with their friends, family or co-workers. • Cashews: empathic, easy-going and well adjusted. Cashew lovers make for a great spouse or parent. Calm and levelheaded, they can be depended on in times of crisis or emergency. A cashew is a good person to have around when the plumbing goes awry or the lights go out. He or she just knows what to do. • Walnuts: aggressive, achievement-oriented, natural leaders. Competitive, suc- cessful, driven, intolerant of defeat. Walnut lovers demand the best at work and at home. They are easily irritated with the routine side of life. They cannot tolerate life’s inconveniences, such as being stuck in rush hour traffic or waiting in long lines. Packed with protein and other essential nutrients, nuts are a healthier choice than many snack options. In fact, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, “diets containing one ounce of nuts per day can reduce your risk of heart disease.” Nuts also have a better balance of good versus bad fat than many traditional snacks and include fatty acids that are good for cellular health.
As for the first question, those who make a grand entrance with flair might turn out to be peanut people--dramatic extroverts who thrive at the center of attention. Those who check in with the hostess first would likely be pecan people--overly generous folks who consider others’ needs before their own. Which nut are YOU? Just go to fishernuts.com

consumed more important nutrients such as calcium, fiber, iron and vitamins B6, B12, C and E, and less overall fat, than families who rarely ate together. During adolescence, family meals also contribute to higher daily intakes of fruit, vegetables and calcium, and lower intakes of soft drinks.
Mealtime conversation promotes posi- tive self-esteem in children and brings the family together. Recent research shows that children whose parents shared ideas and talked to them often were about 40 percent less likely to bully others.

Family meals also provide an opportu- nity for parents to engage children in the planning, preparation and enjoyment of food, which creates a lasting and positive relationship with food. To help your child succeed in school and life with healthy family meals, consider these tips: • Include foods from all the food groups and try new foods together.
• Serve milk with dinner to make sure everyone gets enough calcium and vita- min D. • Try to avoid mobile phones and music devices and turn off the television during mealtime. ■
