Keeping Skin, Hair & Nails Healthy by Michael Steppie, M.D., President and Medical Director Associates in Dermatology 800-827-7546 The practice of dermatology involves improving and maintaining not only the appearance but also the health of your skin, hair and nails. The skin barrier, which serves as a physical protection and an immune defense, can become disrupted. In order to restore its functions, it is important to use mild cleansers and avoid overuse of harsh scrubs. While cleansing, water should be lukewarm to prevent stripping the skin of its natural fats and oils that provide it with moisture. Immediately after bathing, the skin should be patted dry, and a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer should be applied. It is also common to experience a dry, itchy scalp. This condition is most commonly caused by seborrheic dermatitis and is characterized by red and flaky patches on the scalp, which may resemble dandruff. Your nails can become dry, brittle and split. It is essential to avoid using harsh soaps when washing hands, as this will remove the protective natural oils found in your nails. Then, apply a moisturizer and be sure to rub it into the cuticles and nails to restore their strength. It is important to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to receive specific recommendations on the best skin care routine for you. ª Christmas in July LOWEST PRICES EVER on Botox, Filler and PRP July 19th 2017 Enhance your beauty with natural-looking results!

n Gotha As a case manager at South Lake Hospitals’s intensive care unit, Gotha resident Judy Williams, RN, facilitated finding health care services that patients would need once discharged from the unit and ultimately the hospital. At times, hospice was the best option. When she retired three years ago, Judy realized the west Orange County community needed enhanced hospice services, including a Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care inpatient unit at Orlando Health — Health Central Hospital in Ocoee. Inspired by the Lake County organization Women for Hospice, Judy is seeking other members of the community to join her mission to raise funds for the creation of enhanced hospice services to meet the demands of the west Orange community. She recently held a Friends of Cornerstone Hospice cocktail hour at RusTeak in Ocoee to raise awareness and money for her cause.
