Medicine Cabinet Makeover with Dr. V
It’s smart to clean out your medicine cabinet each year. An annual review of prescriptions, over-the-counter medicines and hygiene products can help keep us safe and healthy. Expired products won’t work effectively which can end up wasting money, possibly delaying recovery from illness and affecting hygiene. Health and lifestyle expert, Dr. Yael Varnado, affectionately called “Dr. V,” is a practicing physician at John Hopkins Hospital. She explains why it’s important to regularly check out your medicine cabinet and suggests lifestyle changes that are necessary to avoid getting sick.

Your hair can provide insight into your overall health and wellbeing. Everyone’s hair thins as we age, and some people start to experience it earlier than others. If you think you might be thinning or just want more volume, act early and get started on a regrowth treatment like Rogaine Foam. Minoxidil, the active ingredient in Rogaine, actually boosts follicle activity so full, thick hair continues to grow. It’s such an easy addition to your daily grooming or beauty regimen, no matter what time of year. Just apply it once a day for ladies, twice a day for men, to be on your way to more hair! Most people see results in three to six months of regular use. For more information, visit rogaine.com
