Zane and I share a passion for helping marriages. Through years of having availed ourselves of myriad marriage resources, we now have an arsenal of those that we consider “the best of the best.” Although The Holy Bible is the standard through which any resource we use must be filtered, we are thankful that many of God’s servants have developed practical how-to’s that address very specific situations that arise in many marriages….
Last Tuesday, I shared my experience with injectables and fillers from a recent event held at Dr. Jo Herzog’s office. I shared my perspective on the pain, overall difference made, and degree of satisfaction of each procedure. Today, Dr. Herzog will speak to the process from a doctor’s perspective. She will use my experience to show how she works with her patients to achieve the results they want. Finally, she will tell her opinion of which procedures made the most noticeable improvement on my face.
I have very dry and sensitive skin, so I am very careful to choose products specifically for my skin type. Years ago, I made such purchases based on product claims. If a product said “for sensitive skin” or “moisturizing,” then I believed it. But a long bout with atopic dermatitis taught me to be extremely cautious about the products that I slather on my skin every day.

To make matters worse, several times when I thought that I was cured, one application of eye makeup would re-ignite the whole ordeal. I feared that my eyelids would never be normal again….
Gel manicures are all the rage, comprising close to 65% of most nail salon business. Also known as the “14-day manicure,” gel nails truly live up to all the hype. For most customers, the polish remains beautiful and chip-free for two weeks….
Progesterone. For women, this hormone serves us well through many phases of life. We might not fully appreciate it until we start losing it, and then, things can go downhill in myriad ways.
If you are over 40 and have ever asked yourself, “what on earth is wrong with me?” (as I certainly have), you might be experiencing the effects of declining progesterone. The good news is, this is a problem that is easily remedied if you get get good advice from a physician experienced in this area and who knows how to guide you….
