False ME41 Shaping Up Your Vacation to Keep You in Shape Written by David Mundy Ahhhhhhhhhhhh at last, summer is here. For most, that means the vacations are coming, the break from work, or school that maintains our sanity. Vacations can be anything as far as just sitting around at home, sleeping until your eyes open naturally, or watching your favorite television shows. You can just go to the beach and do the same thing, but instead of watching television you watch the ocean crash on to the beach, while hoping a seagull doesn’t use your head for a toilet. Those are peaceful ways to spend the couple weeks of break you have in between the monotony of life. Yet nowadays doing that is just… BOOOORRRRING. This summer you should step outside of the normal vacation spot “ box” and go on an adventure. The more activities you have planned this summer, the more memorable the trip will be. The more adventurous the trip is, the better you’ll feel, all while engaging in activities that keep you looking and feeling great. Keeping away from the beach all together, you could try a change of climate in Utah’s Red Mountain Spa. People new to adventure can take an introductory course on mountain biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, or kayaking. You can hike through the Grand Canyon or through the narrows of Zion National Park. At night after your long fulfilling day, you’ll be staying in a villa over looking 400 ft. red cliffs. Before you doze off you can check out the spa and get a massage to keep you from being too sore for the next day’s adventures. To cap off your fitness vacation, their health services staff offers body composition and metabolic tests to plan a long- term weight loss or training program. Now you might be thinking to yourself, why would I waste my warm summer vacation in the cold mountains? So back to the beach if that’s the kind of thinking you have, and you may be interested in the Multisport Adventure in Baja California, Mexico, for a seven- day multisport excursion. Baja Wild’s professional instructors will lead you through mountain biking through the coastal desert, surfing Baja’s beautiful Pacific beaches, and kayaking in the ocean. That sounds like the perfect adventure for a summer vacation, but once again if you are thinking “ hmmmm I dunno,” then there are millions of other vacations to take this summer that will keep you fit as well as entertained. If you are still reluctant to change your normal summer vacation plans, then try changing your diet. Nothing and this writer means nothing, will keep you in shape or help you slim down faster than a good diet. Bad foods do not exist; they are one of the many pleasures of life. Foods become bad foods when you over indulge. Eat what you want, enjoy yourself this summer, but stay active. Swim, surf, windsurf, parasail in any ocean you decide to go to. Run, skip, jump, hop down the beach; try bicycling this summer instead of driving, go rock climbing, hiking, or spelunking in the mountains, whatever you do, do something. The best way to make a summer memorable is to stay active and have fun. If you are worried about your health and level of fitness don’t just lay on that beach blanket stuffing yourself full of calories and wondering what you should do. Throw the hot dog down and go pick up a new activity, you’ll be surprised how much difference just a small change in your normal summer vacation plans can impact your life so greatly. You won’t even be thinking about it while you are having fun. So whether you are in the mountains, or on the beach, in a spa or on the sand, try to have some care free fun this summer. There is no reason not to try and stay healthy while doing it. Treating Me

False ME42 Cherish the Skin You’re In Editor of Life & Health Lindsey Bateman When is the last time that you pampered yourself? Maybe you had a hair- care day, a therapeutic massage, or even a mani- pedi session, but how long ago was it when you treated your skin to a spa facial? Have you thought of the benefits? A facial is a beauty treatment for your face. It is one of the best investments you can make for yourself. The ultimate goal of a facial is to bring back the glow of the face while rejuvenating, toning, and making the face serene and supple. The best facial is one that uses natural ingredients that include essential vitamins that the skin needs for protection and balance. The face is always presented to elements such as sun, poor home hygiene, or smoke. Facials offer you the opportunity to work with a professional skin care specialist who creates the perfect treatment based on a skin analysis and personal evaluation. But how do you find the expert that you are searching for? I am here to let you know that you are in good hands ( literally)!!! Lawrence Nurnberger is a Master Aesthetician licensed in Virginia. He received his clinical training at the prestigious Scott and White Memorial Hospital, Division of Plastic Surgery. His career spans over twelve years, in which he has been a pioneer in the Medical Spa industry. He has worked directly at Elan in Tysons Galleria of McLean, Virginia and has consulted for Radiance MedSpa in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. But his expertise doesn’t stop there. Lawrence was recently awarded a Certificate of Special Recognition for participation in the Cancer Care Program at the Washington Cancer Institute and continuing education protocols for individuals undergoing chemo and radiation therapy. He currently performs specialty facials at Reflections Of You- Fairfax, a salon located in Fairfax, Virginia. Lawrence believes, “ Exfoliation creates a controlled injury to the skin in order to produce healthier cells at a faster rate, which overall evens out the skin color, leaving it vibrant.” He also says that his treatments reduce acne, treat fine lines, and help with aging. But most importantly, he adds, “ Treatments have a profound effect on the way a person feels. High levels of stress in our environment can account for 60 percent of adult acne cases.” So as you can see, Lawrence Nurnberger knows skin! He is a superb aesthetician who specializes in facials, chemical peels, epidermal leveling, microdermabrasion, and ultra sound treatments. Through words of Julie McBride, a client of Lawrence’s, “ He is worth the money. He is the best in class. Lawrence always makes you feel great about yourself. He is great at mirroring to each customer and individual skin needs.” And salon owner, Dave Plum, states, “ Lawrence has a unique way of professionalism, he doesn’t short cut anything. He choreographs each facial with specific techniques. He almost never leaves contact with a client’s face. His brushes work to the music he uses, while treating his facials as a play.” With master knowledge in the field of skin, Lawrence still strives to improve and develop a new technique with each new client! While finding the perfect skin care specialist may be tricky, the benefits of a facial are endless. A facial can do many amazing things for the skin, depending on particular skin types and complexions. The benefits of skin treatments and products are also necessary to prevent skin cancers. Many specialists believe that prevention of skin cancer through better education and treatments can lead to protection against the harmful ranges of ultraviolet radiation found from the suns rays. After speaking with Lawrence Nurnberger and analyzing research based on facial treatments, a few questions concerning facials are answered below: How often should an individual have a facial? The experts agree that once or twice a month is recommended if you can afford the treatment. But if the treatment is too expensive for some, once during every season change is the next option for facial treatments. How do you find an aesthetician that suits your needs? One simple answer: Networking! Find out where that woman in Master Aesthetician Lawrence Nurnberger
