Dental health is as critical for pets as it is for us! Tartar and plaque enveloping the gums and tooth base in our pets can shed bacteria throughout the pet body. Aside from the obvious ‘doggie bad breath,’ conditions like kidney failure, facial/skin infections, nasal infections, heart disease and more all can be associated with an infected mouth. The bad breath (or halitosis) is due to bacterial infections of the gums (gingiva) and supporting tissues (periodontal tissues), which support the tooth in its socket.
When it comes to cancer, many cases are mysteries. It’s very difficult—even impossible—to pinpoint what leads to a malignancy. Yet there are a few cancers that clearly are linked to specific causes. Smoking contributes to lung cancer, sun damage contributes to skin cancer, and—in a stunning 99 percent of cases—human papillomavirus (HPV) is present in cervical cancer cases.
Since reopening in Chesterfield several years ago, Balaban’s has garnered plenty of accolades, including multiple awards of the Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence. It had been a while since our last visit and lots has happened in the interim, including an expansion of the space and the promotion of D. Scott Phillips from catering and banquet chef to executive chef last summer; so we recently dropped in to see what else is new.
Let the color flow for spring with our picks for eye and cheek makeup.
The weather has been teasing us lately; but at LN, we’re hoping a new spring look is just the thing to make the warm weather come a little more quickly. We asked tarte makeup artist Erin Griffin how to make the transition. Griffin is a 10-year industry veteran who has done makeup for Miami Swim Week and the Oscar de la Renta show. She also has worked behind the scenes for the likes of Lady Antebellum and The Voice winner Casadee Pope.
Last weekend, Jackie Joyner-Kersee watched the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Sochi from her West St. Louis County home with a smile on her face. Come to think of it, there isn't much of anything she does without a smile on her face! And why not? She became a six-time Olympic medalist (3 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals in heptathlon and long jump) as a member of Team U.S.A. in four different Olympic games (Los Angeles, 1984; Seoul, 1988; Barcelona, 1992; and Atlanta, 1996). She was named by Sports Illustrated as the Greatest Female Athlete of the 20th Century. Indeed, she has had a lot to smile about. “I realize I've been blessed,” she says. “There are times when I have bad days, but the smile helps me keep things in perspective—and really recognize my blessings.”
Although our skin is still covered by sweaters and scarves, before long, we’ll be baring our faces, necks and arms to the sun. We all know that sunscreen is crucial to protecting ourselves from premature aging, pigmentation and—most important—skin cancer. Yet another aspect of prevention is early detection of potential problems, so now is the time to take a close look at your skin.
Vincent Longo was born in Australia to Italian parents and later moved to the Italian Riviera and finally, to New York City. The makeup artist has worked with legendary models, including the likes of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum; and his work has graced the covers of both national and international beauty magazines. He has since launched his own eponymous makeup line. LN caught up with him recently when he visited St. Louis to debut the line at Soft Surroundings.
You may assume that feeling tired, depressed, mentally foggy, constipated and heavy are just due to your overstretched schedule, stress and sedentary lifestyle. But if these symptoms make it hard to accomplish daily tasks or persist even with improved nutrition, hydration and regular exercise, talk to your doctor—one possible answer may involve your thyroid.
The wind was howling and there was almost a foot of beautiful snow on the ground. With below-freezing temperatures, there was no way my wife, Arlene, and I were going anywhere. We were snowed in. What better time than to build a fire and cozy up with a bottle of wine from the cellar?
No matter how much we fight it, aging changes the skin. We no longer produce copious amounts of natural oils to keep things smooth; and decades of sun damage, from those tans that looked so good when we were in our 20s and 30s, takes its toll as brown spots and wrinkles become more prominent.
What’s your New Year’s resolution for 2014? Perhaps you’d like to up your design game by experimenting with a new color palette for a fresher and more youthful look. If your answer is yes, check out these furnishings and interiors with strategically placed touches of happy, vibrant pink set against a background of white. For those who prefer a more sophisticated look, try pairing saturated pink with soft gray. And don’t overlook the importance of variations in texture; velvet, unshorn lamb’s wool, and shag rugs all add interest to rooms done up in these simple color schemes.
We've re-visited several old favorites lately that have replaced longtime chefs with new ones. The latest is Vin De Set, which recently said goodbye to executive chef Ivy Magruder and welcomed chef Ryan Buettner into that position. While it's always a bit worrisome when a kitchen gets shuffled around, we're happy to report that this transition of power has been seamless—and delicious.
With the new year upon us, it’s a good time to resolve to take better care of your skin, according to Dr. Gregory Branham and Dr. John Chi of the Washington University Facial Plastic Surgery Center.
We all look forward to the New Year and the practice of making promises to ourselves to hopefully better our lives in one or more ways. Those are noble goals, indeed! But even more noble and gracious would be to honor our beloved pets by committing to those New Year’s resolutions that will help to guarantee their health and well-being, as well. Let’s look at some of the ways we can do so:
If your New Year’s resolution involves a flat tummy, you may think you can easily check it off the list with one little surgery. But abdominoplasty, popularly known as a ‘tummy tuck,’ is not a little surgery—and it’s not for everyone.
Home owners are turning to the outdoors for more living space, transforming plain, grassy yards into intricate sanctuaries.
It’s that time of year when everyone is trying to make a fresh start. To help us with our beauty resolutions, we turned to Kelly Wilcockson, a licensed esthetician at Synergi MedSpa, for some expert advice.
