Personal beauty tip from a Plastic Surgeon: Keep it simple

The following is an except from an article I was interviewed for in Health Magazine:

Natural Cures - Anti Aging Solutions

The Best Anti-Aging Secrets
From Health magazine

We've all been there:

That moment midappointment when you catch yourself shamelessly staring at your hairdresser, dermatologist, or dentist and thinking, How the heck does she pull it off? What's the secret to her great hair, pore-free complexion, or flawless teeth? Well, we decided to go straight to the source and find out, once and for all, how to get that ageless look—naturally.

We asked the beauty industry's most-sought-after stylists, aestheticians, and MDs to divulge their tricks for stopping the clock. If there's no fountain of youth, their unexpectedly simple advice might be the next best thing.

MY ADVICE: Keep it simple!

"Because I'm a plastic surgeon, companies send me so many skin-care samples—and some of them have 10 different steps! But I'm realistic, so there's no way I'm going to sign up for some huge beauty system that costs hundreds of dollars and requires a commitment that I'm not willing to make.
Honestly, here's my daily skin-care routine: I go home, wash my face with a drugstore cleanser, put on a moisturizer, and fall into bed. I find that this simple regimen works well for me."
Karen M. Horton, MD, Plastic Surgeon and Reconstructive Microsurgeon at the Women's Plastic Surgery Center, San Francisco
I would also add that a healthy, nutritious diet, regular exercise, lots of sleep and a healthy home and work environment are also very important in health overall, and to beautiful skin!
