Putting the Focus on Yourself
Self-care tips and advice from some local experts

by Staff

It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of long days at the office, transporting kids around to their various activities and trying to find a little time to decompress. But, while juggling one’s responsibilities, they shouldn’t overlook their own health and well-being. And so we asked area health care providers to share some insight on ways folks can carve out a little “me” time and take care of their own desires and needs.

Rose Marie Beauchemin-Verzella, Founder
The Beau Institute

“Here at Beau, we thrive on the gratification of giving women the freedom and confidence of having professionally applied permanent makeup. We specialize in all the most popular and natural effects in eyebrows, designed exclusively for one’s face and complexion. Permanent makeup is life-changing for busy women or those struggling to apply their makeup every day.”

Hope Doms, Owner
Wair Studio Salon

“We believe hair color is a healthy choice. Our color is clean from ammonia; PPD, a chemical known to cause dermatitis reddening and swelling of the scalp and face; and resorcinol, a popular coloring agent, which is toxic to wildlife and the human immune system. These are three ingredients that are excluded from the color line we carry.”

Dr. Lisa Allen, Breast Surgical Oncologist
Captial Health

“In addition to feeling for lumps, it’s also about knowing what your breasts look and feel like so when you do notice changes, you can act right away. The sooner you get evaluated and diagnosed the less treatment you may need.”

Kate Filiberto, Owner

“Feeling dry and itchy all over? You need hydration. And not just the drinking eight glasses of water kind. This time of year requires layering hydrating serums and moisturizers for the face and body. Also, consider a professional facial to consult with an educated esthetician on the proper products for your skin type and condition for the current season.”

Dr. Paul G. Vidal, Owner
Specialized Physical Therapy

“As physical therapists, we help people move well. Movement is medicine. Movement through regular physical activity helps us feel better, function better, sleep better and help reduce the risk for chronic diseases. If you need help moving, call your physical therapist.”

Dr. Nermeen Rifai, Owner
All Smiles Family Dentistry

“You shouldn’t have to choose between dental restoration and a natural looking smile. We have advanced dental solutions to help revive your oral health while still maintaining a natural smile you can wear with confidence. We are experienced in creating custom made restorations that blend perfectly with your existing smile. All our restorative materials in the office are metal free composite resins to assure a more natural looking smile.”
