MYTH: Facials are a beauty must-have.
FACT: Facials can be fun and if done by an expert esthetician can help deliver a variety of benefits such as moisturization, deep cleansing, and exfoliation. If you can afford a professional facial, make sure you’re “in the hands” of an expert esthetician or you could wind up with irritation or scarring.
MYTH: Wrinkle creams can completely eradicate wrinkles.
FACT: These days there are many ways to “erase” the signs of time on the skin. The most effective ways are with injectable substances, fillers, or plastic surgery. Professionally-administered chemical peels and lasers can also help give your skin a fresher, more youthful appearance. Anti-aging creams cannot completely remove wrinkles, but their formulas often contain ingredients such as niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides that deeply moisturize the skin and make it look more supple and radiant.
MYTH: Doing facial exercises will tone facial muscles, providing a more youthful appearance.
FACT: There has never been any substantiation for this beauty myth. In fact, certain facial movements such as squinting and laughing may contribute to the formation of wrinkles -- maybe that’s why we call them laugh lines and crows feet.
MYTH: Expensive skincare products are better for your skin.

FACT: Many mass-marketed products available at your local drugstore are just as effective as luxury department-store brands. In fact, many contain the same ingredients as their more expensive counterparts. Elegant packaging, advertising, and luxury brand names are often what you pay for when purchasing more expensive products.

Charities have fund raisers in many forms. There are walks, bike-rides, car washes, and much more. But have you ever heard of a charity Luau? This one has been invented right here in Rochester!
The event is known as the Luau for Lustgarten.
It is a fund raiser
for the Lustgarten Foundation, the nation’s largest private supporter
of pancreatic cancer research. Pancreatic cancer is the most lethal cancer there is. Survival rate is only 5%. This is primarily because it is a “silent” disease often not diagnosed until advanced stages. When caught early the survival rate goes up.
The first Luau was started last year by the Millard and Marrese families, who had lost relatives and friends to the disease. This year the event is scheduled for April 30 from 5:30 to 11PM at the RIT Inn and Conference Center. Tickets are $35. Call 585-225-3088 for more information. So get your Aloha shirt out and come party for a good cause!
