DR. OZ’S ANTI-AGERS: HOW TO LOOK A DECADE YOUNGER AT THE DRUGSTORE. Everyone wants to reverse the effects of aging – or at the very least, just look a little younger. The best part is that Dr. Oz has solutions that don’t require expensive, painful surgery. He will show you how to look a decade younger with just one trip to the drug store. Dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie has some cutting-edge solutions for aging skin, and Paula Begoun, the “Cosmetics Cop,” finds inexpensive options that anyone can get at their local drugstore. They and Dr. Oz will tell you what one ingredient can help with the bags under your eyes, what researchers in Costa Rica have discovered about wrinkles and what everyday products can help with your skintone.
Also on this show, the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem looks for help for its congregants to improve their overall health. As they are located just minutes away from Dr. Oz’s hospital, they have a great resource in Dr. Oz.
Since many members have diabetes, high blood pressure and even amputations, four church members asked Dr. Oz to get them back on the road to health. Latham Thomas, a certified nutrition counselor, personal trainer and yoga instructor who lives near the church, will help the congregation develop a three-step devotional plan to get them back into shape.
And Dr. Oz will also pay a visit to “Sesame Street” to see what Elmo’s cooking up!
Wednesday, March 3
