Dr Oz: Do Not Wash Your Face in the Morning
Food Dr. Oz is continuing to share some the most common mistakes many of us make that affect our health. He has a few food mistakes that can add up to about 12 pounds of weight gain every single year. Are you guilty of any of these mistakes? How about anti-aging mistakes? None of us want to age any faster than we need to, right? You might want to pay attention and listen to Dr. Oz’s advice to avoid these mistakes in your life.
Dr Oz: Food Mistakes – Licking the Peanut Butter off your Knife
While it might seem innocent to make your kids a peanut butter sandwich for lunch or dinner, Dr. Oz says there is something that many of us do that could be a huge mistake. He says that mistake is licking the peanut butter off the knife after you have made the sandwich. That little lick is about 80 calories of peanut butter and Dr. Oz says if you did that every day for a year it would equal and extra eight pounds.
Dr Oz: Food Mistakes – Eating the Leftover Chips at the Bottom of the Bag
Dr. Oz says that while many of us love to eat chips, whether potato chips or pita chips, there is a huge mistake that many of us are probably making when we are snacking. He says that if you like to get every last crumb at the bottom of the bag that adds up to an additional 70 calories or 2 pounds per year if you do this 2 times per week.
Dr Oz: Food Mistakes – Eating Last Little Bit of Macaroni & Cheese
Dr. Oz that many of us, especially kids, love macaroni and cheese, but there is a common mistake that I bet many of us are making when we prepare this meal. You know that last little bit of mac and cheese that is stuck around the edge of the pan? Well, if you eat that every time you make macaroni and cheese (say twice per week), it will amount to 50 calories each time or 1.5 pounds per year.
*If you combined all of these “mistakes” just for making meals for your family, it will add up to about 12 pounds extra per year. Yikes! Dr. Oz says if you make any of these food mistakes, just make sure you cut back your calories somewhere else throughout the day.
Dr Oz: Biggest Anti-Aging Mistakes – Washing Your Face in the Morning
Dr. Oz says that about 90% of his audience made this anti-aging mistake today and he bets that many of his viewers did, too. Can you guess what it might be? The answer is washing your face in the morning. He says that by washing your face in the morning you actually take away important oils that protect your face throughout the day. Over cleansing your skin will actually age it and leave it looking dry and dull. Dr. Oz says to only wash your face at night to have the healthiest skin.
Dr Oz: Biggest Anti-Aging Mistakes – Neglecting Your Neck
Dr. Oz says that a common anti-aging mistake when applying moisturizer or sunblock to your face is neglecting your neck. Dr. Oz says it is just important to protect the skin on your neck as it is to protect the skin on your face. He also says there is no need to purchase a separate product. Just use the same one that you use on your face to get the same benefit for your neck.
Dr Oz: Biggest Anti-Aging Mistakes – Brushing Wet Hair
Dr. Oz says to think of your hair as a silk blouse because it is very fragile, so if you brush it while it is wet you will cause breakage and damage. He recommends that you always dry your hair before you brush it to keep it healthy and preventing premature damage and aging.
Dr Oz: Viewer Success Stories
Many of Dr. Oz viewers have found great success by trying some of the advice they have seen while watching his show. A viewer named Pebbles decided to give Dr. Oz’s “green” juice a try and she says it not only tasted better than she expected, but she also lost 50 pounds. Dr. Oz’s next viewer guest said that after seeing him use a neti pot on his show, she started to use one every day. She says her children now each use one, too, and even remind her if she forgets. She believes that it actually keeps her entire family healthy and helps them to get better sleep because they all have clear and healthy sinus passages.
