I t happens to the best of us. We look at
our aging reflection in an unfamiliar
mirror at a friend’s house, in a hotel
room or in a public restroom and the
inevitable leaves you blushing — you have
wrinkles, fine lines and you aren’t a spring
chicken anymore. Blame the lighting.
Blame your diet. Blame the sun. But
whatever you do, don’t blame the mirror.
It doesn’t lie. So this summer, get back the
youthful glow you thought you had by
investing in some laser skin-resurfacing
treatments using Dr. John J. Martin’s
skillful blend of Co2 and Naturalase
Erbium lasers at The Alhambra Cosmetic
Laser Center in Coral Gables. A Harvard
Medical School grad, Dr. Martin is
recognized the world over for the dramatic
results he weaves on his patients with his
masterful skill. For unbelievable before-
and-afters, visit DrJohnMartin.com. Once
you’ve seen what he can do, schedule a
consultation by calling 305.444.5950.

outdoors. Not only will your skin have a

Besides drinking the standard 8 glasses

Ever wonder why a sense
of humor ranks atop most
“Definitely Dateable” and
“Marriage Material” lists for
both men and women? Well, for
starters, everyone likes a good
chuckle…and secondly, laughing
is actually good for your health.
From reducing stress to lowering
blood pressure, surrounding
yourself with comics and witty
wisecrackers is the best medicine
you can get — and it’s usually
free. Next time someone makes
you laugh till your abs hurt, note
how you feel afterward. You
may just want to add them to
your healthy lifestyle. Just don’t
through your health insurance
coverage out the window, or the
joke will definitely be on you.
