We spend money on creams, facials, fillers, and even sometimes plastic surgery.  To get some tips for how we can maintain a young-looking face,  we went to several  great beauty professionals including  Dr. Kirk Brandow , founder and director of the Brandow Clinic for Cosmetic Surgery in Philadelphia, who has appeared on national programs such as Good Morning America and 20/20. Here’s what they all have to say. 1. Get rest. There absolutely  is  such a thing as beauty sleep. “Women come to my practice thinking they need an eye-job or a facelift when all they need is sleep. Sleep is a time when we rejuvenate ourselves and cellular turnover is at its height. Getting 7-8 hours of sleep nightly will make a huge difference in how youthful a woman appears especially as she approaches age 30 and collagen production decreases,” says Dr. Brandow. “A woman can speed up aging if they are constantly sle

As I mentioned in my recent post on the financial impacts of a personal injury at work , there is a lot that can go wrong - and today, I thought I would go through some of the things you need to consider if you want to save some money and try to maximize your compensation at the same time.

Introducing Your Dog to Your New Baby

Expecting a new baby can change a lot of things, including your adult dog’s behavior.  His position in your family will change and you don’t want him to blame the baby. Make as many changes in your home environment and your dog’s routine as early as you can. If certain areas of your home will be off limits, like the nursery, establish that now.  It’s also a good idea to teach your dog the difference between his toys and the baby’s. For dogs that have trouble differentiating between certain toys, use scent recognition to teach them the difference – put a dab of Listerine on the baby’s toys, truss the scented baby toy and a dog toy then play the game “which one is yours?” Playing this game once a week, most dogs learn the difference within a month. The sound of a crying baby also upsets a lot of adult dogs, so it’s a good idea to desensitize your dog to the sounds before the baby arrives.  Use a tape of a baby crying, put it in the crib, turn it on and see how your d
