Dr. Oz: Defy Your Age

Dr. Oz hit the streets of Los Angeles to show pictures of today's experts and ask people to guess their ages. Every person on the street guessed the women were 10 to 15, even 20 years younger than they really are. What are their real ages and how do they do it?

Dr. Oz Defy Your Age: Skin Care

The Dr. Oz Show audience was polled to see if they could guess the age of dermatologist Dr. Joely Kaufman. The audience guessed 31, she is actually 41 years old!

Dr. Kaufman shares cutting edge products and supplements to help you achieve your youngest looking skin.

Dr. Oz Age Defying Skin Care for Brown Spots
In her dermatology office, Dr. Kaufman uses a laser to get rid of brown spots. She says you can tackle brown spots at with a supplement. Pycnogenol is Dr. Kaufman's secret weapon to fight brown spots. She recommends taking 50mg of pycnogenol twice daily to help fade brown spots, provide sun protection, and boost collagen and elastin in the skin. Pycnogenol can also be found in many topical creams for an additional weapon against brown spots.

Dr. Oz Age Defying Skin Care for Crow's Feet
Dr. Kaufman says you can now use a laser at home to reduce the appearance of crow's feet. PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser is the first FDA approved home laser to treat fine lines around the eyes and has a price tag of $450.00.

The PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser is based on same the technology used in dermatologists office. Dr. Kaufman recommends using it daily for a month then reduce use to twice a week.

Audience volunteer, Susan, tried it out. A gel was applied to the side of the face that PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser would be used. Susan said it felt like a light band snapping. A before and after picture of a woman who used PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser was shown and there was significant reduction in the crow's feet.

Dr. Oz said it may be a good idea to go in with friends and share the expense and share the results. Dr. Kaufman says PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser is still cheaper than a visit to the dermatologist for the same procedure which can run $500 to $1000.

Dr. Kaufman also recommends OleHenriksen The Truth Is In The Eyes anti-aging cream to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Oz Defy Your Age: Foods to Defy Age

How old is Dr. Oz's next guest? Rovenia M. Brock, PhD, nutrition coach known as Dr. Ro, figured out the right form of food to take years off her face. How many years?

The average age the audience guessed was 34. Dr. Ro's actual age is 56! Remarkable, says Dr. Oz. Dr. Ro says age is from the neck up and she is sharing two secrets.

Dr. Oz Defy You Age: Fashionably Young

How old is style and fashion expert Katrina Szish? The average age guessed by The Dr. Oz Show audience was 24. Ms. Szish is actually 40 years old!

Ms. Szish says you can look instantly younger with the right clothes. She wants everyone to put their clothes on a diet! Baggy clothes, she says, don't do any favors to any one.

Dr. Oz: Dress to Defy Age - Jackets
It used to be that the length of a jacket matched the length of your arms. Not anymore. Jackets should hit the waist line to show of the figure. Arm holes are placed higher on the jacket then in previous decades and the arms of the jacket are slimmer.

Dr. Oz: Dress to Defy Age - Skirts
A skirt should not be too long nor too short. A mini skirt is not age appropriate. Ms. Szish says the hem of the skirt should hit the knee or be no higher than two inches above.

Dr. Oz: Dress to Defy Age – Make Over
Audience member Clair, age 45, was chosen for a make over by Ms. Szish. Clair was wearing baggy, all black clothes, a sweater, capris and chunky shoes. Ms. Szish says baggy clothing and all black is doing many women a dis-service.

Clair was made over with a Maggy London dress [Ikat Cotton Sheath, cost $118] with a red and blue pattern [looks like the psychotherapy paint splotched] showing off her waist line. A deep blue necklace by Danielle Emon acts a frame for Clair's face and makes her skin look sun kissed, like she's on vacation.

Clair said she felt alive, white hot and stunning in the outfit. 

Dr. Oz Biggest Beauty Product Breakthroughs of 2012

Hair, skin, and nails can give away age or help you defy it. Dr. Oz discusses revolutionary beauty treatments new for 2012 that are inexpensive, easy-to-use and can help you look younger.

Didi Gluck, Health and Beauty Director of Real Simple Magazine, says breakthroughs in beauty products for 2012 are primarily in the healthy and all natural sector of at-home salon treatments.

Dr. Oz 2012 Beauty Breakthrough #1: At-Home Keratin Treatment
Keratin treatments are the biggest thing in hair. Keratin instantly soothes frizzy, fly-away hair. Keratin Earth has a four step kit that can be used monthly to naturally straighten fizzy hair. In a salon, a hair straightening keratin treatment would include the chemical formaldehyde and a flat iron to seal the chemicals.
Cost for Keratin Earth: about $99 [on 5/16/12, the website was showing it on sale for $79.]

Dr. Oz 2012 Beauty Breakthrough #2: At-Home Gel Manicure
Ms. Gluck says if a gel manicure can be life changing. In the salon, a gel manicure requires “cooking” under a heat lamp to cure nail polish so there is no chipping and no need for a touch up for 2 weeks. You can get the same effect at-home with LCN Polish Seal and a 60 watt light bulb. After applying your nail color, apply LCN Polish Seal as a top coat then hold fingers under a 60 watt light bulb for 3 minutes and no chips for 2 weeks!
Cost for LCN Polish Seal: about $22 online.

[This sounds like a great idea, actually. I like the idea of nail polish but find that it doesn't last long – maybe a day or two. If this is really natural, I think it's worth a try especially comparing the time and money that would be spent to reapply polish every few days over 2 weeks.]

Dr. Oz 2012 Beauty Breakthrough #3: At-Home Eye Lash Stain
Ms. Gluck says 2011 was the year of the lash and that trend is still going strong in 2012. Lash tinting and extensions are still popular. You can get the same salon lash look at-home with Hard Candy Lash Ink 4-Day Lash Stain which provides a dark, glossy, younger looking lash that doesn't wash off.
Cost for Hard Candy Lash Ink 4-Day Lash Stain: about $7.00.

Dr. Oz 2012 Beauty Breakthrough #4: At-Home Self-Tanning Back Applicator Tool
This is a “why didn't I invent this” product, says Ms. Gluck. Xen Tan's Hard to Reach allows you to apply self-tanning lotion by yourself, at-home, with an extension handle and sponge applicator. Change the pad when it looks worn, the kit comes with 5 replacement pads which should last a total of 5 years of use. An audience volunteer used the Xen Tan's Hard to Reach to apply self-tanner and it was a bit awkward, perhaps a little practice would help. Dr. Oz commented that it would be easier to have someone apply it for you – glowing endorsement!
Cost for Xen Tan's Hard to Reach: $18 online.

Dr. Oz 10-Day Fat Flush

Dr. Oz says he can help people get on the fast track to fast weight loss with foods and workout tips from Kim Lyons, fitness trainer, nutritional coach, and best-selling author of Kim Lyons' Your Body, Your Life.

Ms. Lyons has helped many melt away fat and transform bodies. Dr. Oz says she delivers incredible results. She shares her Ultimate 10 Day Plan to Flush Out Fat For Good by cleansing the body in 10 days with 4 easy steps.

Dr. Oz Fat Flush Step #1: Fat Flush Water
1 slice of grapefruit
1 tangerine
½ cucumber
1 leaves of peppermint
Drink as much Fat Flush Water over 10 days but a minimum of three 8 ounces glasses, one before each meal.

Grapefruit contains Vitamin C and helps the body use fat for fuel, tangerine makes the body more sensitive to insulin which tells the body to activate genes to burn more fat. Cucumber helps the body feel full and peppermint is a refreshing flavor that also helps calm the stomach.

Dr. Oz Fat Flush Step #2: Choose Green Carbs Over Brown Carbs
There are grains that are brown and healthy too but, Ms. Lyons says this is a 10-day plan to get the body cleansed and rev up its ability to burn fat. Green carbs from plants are lower in calories and full of nutrients and vitamins, they are also lower on the glycemic index to avoid that afternoon carb crash.

Replace your favorite grains with vegetables to complete Step 2. Here are three foods Ms. Lyons recommends as posted on

Zucchini pasta: Using a vegetable peeler, cut the zucchini into lengthwise ribbons. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in pan, add zucchini ribbons and stir for 3 minutes until the zucchini turns translucent. Top with a healthy tomato sauce and enjoy.

Lettuce wraps: Swap your sandwich bread for lettuce leaves. Wrap around turkey slices, colorful cut-up veggies, etc.

Freekeh: [pronounced “freaky”] This roasted green grain made from immature durum wheat is packed with protein, vitamins and minerals. Not only does freekeh contain 6 grams of fiber per serving, but it’s also low in carbs, high in fiber, has a low glycemic index and is rich in probiotic properties. Enjoy as a side dish instead of rice. Available at health food stores.

Dr. Oz Fat Flush Step #3: Super Spice Protein
Add flavor to foods with a blend of spices that can be used to season all proteins. Chili powder fights fat, turmeric suppresses the growth of fat cells, and mustard seeds boost metabolism. Mix equal parts of each spice and use 2 tablespoons to rub on the protein of choice.

Dr. Oz Fat Flush Step #4: Snack Skinny
Snack on baked cauliflower like it was popcorn to support the liver in flushing out all the fat you'll be burning.

Cauliflower Popcorn
Cut 2 heads of cauliflower into bite-sized popcorn pieces, mix with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds, and pepper to taste. Bake in a 420F oven for 15-20 minutes.

Dr. Oz Fast Track to Weight Loss Workout

Many women are so busy they don't have enough time in the day for a gym visit or even a walk around the block. Ms. Lyons says you need to bring fitness to you. In 15 minutes in the morning she says you can work on your strength, cardio, and flexibility in your own home. Start as soon as you wake up to burn calories and get energized.

Dr. Oz Fast Track Workout: Bedroom Balance Stretch
As soon as you roll out of bed, place hands on the side of the bed and get into plank pose. Then scoop the head down and up and back to plank. Turn to one side, holding weight on one arm with the other arm raised above the body reaching for the ceiling. Repeat for 10 reps, alternating sides. Take deep breaths during this exercise to start the day on a positive note.

Dr. Oz Fast Track Workout: Microwave March
Do your cardio in the kitchen to get the heart racing. Using your microwave clock to time your exercise. [You could really do this anywhere using any time piece however “Microwave March” is a catchy title. It's all about marketing, right?] Complete a variety of cardio exercises for a total of 10 minutes. Mix up the exercises to keep it fresh. [Watch Ms. Lyons video on to see her suggested cardio exercises.]

Dr. Oz Fast Track Workout: TV Time Workout
This exercise targets the back of the arms and the booty. Place one knee on your couch with arms on the arm rest. Complete an incline push-up while at the same time send the standing leg back and up. Squeeze the glutes and hold the abs in tight for stability during this exercise.

Dr. Oz Fat Fighting Fiesta!

Mexican food is flavorful but often times it's loaded with fat and calories.

Chef LaLa, chef, nutritionist and author of Chef LaLa's Best-Loved Mexican Cooking, shares her recipe for taquitos that won't leave you weighed down by fat or calories.

Chef Lala says that traditionally, Mexican food was very healthy but it's been updated and has become unhealthy in many instances. She says you can still go back to those traditional methods that keep the flavor while losing the calories.

Utilizing the antioxidant powerhouse herb Chef Lala says her taquitos help to fight the production of fat cell. Baking the corn tortilla gives them a crispy and satisfying flavor. Served with refreshing Jicama Guacamole and a Spicy Mango Margarita that features chili's to boost the metabolism and Vitamin C to help the body absorb less fat, Chef Lala provides a meal that aims to fill you up with flavor and burn calories too!

Dr. Oz Bonus Tips! Guilt-Free Fat-Flushing 7-Layer Dip

Guilt-Free 7-Layer Dip to Fight Fat
Layer #1: 4 cups shredded lettuce, high in water lettuce helps to flush fat.
Layer #2: 3 medium ripe avocados mashed and mixed with 2 tbsp lemon juice.
Layer #3: 1 1/2 cup Greek yogurt mixed with 1 package low-sodium taco seasoning mix will replace sour cream in a traditional 7-layer dip and saves over 200 calories.
Layer #4: 1 can black beans, high in fiber and protein to keep you full.
Layer #5: 3 medium diced tomatoes, low in calories and high in nutrients such as lycopene to keep you thin.
Layer #6: 2 cans sliced olives.
Layer #7: 8 ounces of 2% cheddar cheese, low-fat and shredded, low-fat dairy has been shown to aid in weight loss.

Dr. Oz calls this dip spectacularly healthy. It's tempting to dig in with tortilla chips and just ruin all the calorie savings achieved in the dip. Dr. Oz recommends alternating between a celery chip and a tortilla chip.
