Is your epidermis showing?
Don't worry, it should be. Your epidermis is the top part of your skin, the body's largest and fastest growing organ. Unfortunately showing all that skin and soaking up sunshine while outside on the river, hiking, or spending time at the pool damages our skin and shows in our complexion in the fall and winter months. Autumn is a time of transition, and a great time to prepare your body for winter and take care of our largest organ.
Here are a couple fall tips that the Spa Moab team has put together for you.
Tip 1: Exfoliate
Exfoliation is KEY to bringing back your skin to a healthy glow. For your face, Spa Moab recommends receiving one of their seasonal Enzyme Peels. Spa Moab stocks numerous exfoliation products to add into your weekly skincare routine. For the body, try dry brushing before a shower or use a high performance body exfoliator that buffs and adds moisture back in with an oil base.
Tip 2: Massage
The kids are back in school and the germs are running wild.
Clinical studies have indicated that regular massage can naturally increase the immune system's cytotoxic capacity (the activity level of the body's natural "killer cells") and decrease the number of T-cells, which improves the body's immune functioning overall.
Tip 3: Moisturize
As the weather cools, the skin will need more hydration. Make sure you also use a good night repair product to heal and hydrate while sleeping. You might need to switch to an even heavier product as the weather gets cooler.
Tip 4: Foot Love
Transitioning from flip flops to cute boots and warm socks doesn't mean it's time to neglect your feet and toes. Pedicures are not just to provide you with beautifully shaped and painted toenails, but also to maintain the overall health of your feet.
Tip 5: Eye Repair
The summer can do serious damage to the thinner, more sensitive skin around the eyes. As the weather gets cooler, these lines can be more apparent. Use a good eye product twice a day: A product that allows for cellular repair is key to changing the delicate tissue around the eyes.
Tip 6: Replenish
Stay hydrated internally. Drink more water this fall and brew your favorite herbal teas. Your body and skin will thank you!
Whether it's relaxation, skin recovery, or you're searching for a perfect gift, Spa Moab is the place for you. Their team of massage therapists and estheticians combine a huge array of experience and education with a long list of offerings. Choices of treatments and services include many types of massage, facials, pedicures, and hydrating body treatments.

Humans shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour - about 1.5 pounds a year. By 70 years of age, an average person will have lost 105 pounds of skin.

 

Hospice Myth vs Facts

Myth: Hospice is a place.
Fact: Hospice care usually takes place in the comfort of your home, but can be provided in any environment in which you live, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, residential care facilities and to inpatients at Moab Regional Hospital.

Myth: Families have to pay for hospice care.
Fact: Grand County Hospice is a program of Moab Regional Hospital, a non-profit organization, and is covered by Medicare/Medicaid, most major insurance companies, HMO’s and PPO’s. Through its charity care policies, Grand County Hospice is committed to caring for all patients, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.

Myth: Patients have to give up their own doctor.
Fact: Patients may keep their own physician, who will work closely with the Grand County Hospice team to plan and carry out care.

Myth: Hospice is only for cancer patients.
Fact: Hospice patients have many different conditions, including congestive heart failure, chronic lung disease, and other life-limiting conditions.

Myth: Patients can only receive hospice care for a limited amount of time.
Fact: The Medicare benefit, and most private insurance, pays for hospice care as long as the patient continues to meets the criteria necessary. Patients may come on and off hospice care, and re-enroll in hospice care, as needed.

Myth: Hospice provides 24-hour care.
Fact: The hospice team (which includes nurses, social workers, home health aides, chaplains, bereavement counselors and volunteers) visits patients intermittently, and are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week for support and care.

Myth: All hospice programs are the same.
Fact: All licensed hospice programs must provide certain services, but the range of support services and programs may differ. Some programs, like Grand County Hospice, are not-for-profit and their revenue is used to provide patient care and community services, versus for-profit hospices, which are accountable to shareholders.

Myth: Hospice is just for the patient.
Fact: Grand County Hospice focuses on comfort, dignity, and emotional support. The quality of life for the patient, but also for family members and caregivers, is the highest priority. Grand County Hospice offers bereavement and counseling services to families before and after the death of their loved one and sponsors a grief support group every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month held at the Grand County Library at 6pm.
