Davenport Ranch WANT YOUR SKIN TO GLOW? "All Natural" Might Not Be The Way To Go

If you want your skin to glow, experts at Baylor College of Medicine say all natural products might not be the answer. "Some people think that by going all natural with their skin care, that it will automatically be safer for their skin. That's not necessarily the case," said Dr. Rajani Katta, professor of dermatology at Baylor. Whether it is cleansers or moisturizers, you can still have allergic reactions to the ingredients even if they are all natural or organic. Many natural ingredients, such as lavender extract or sandalwood oil, are actually types of fragrance additives. Even though these are natural fragrances, they can still cause the same type of allergic reactions. Other natural ingredients, such as tea tree oil, can also trigger allergic reactions. Since it may be hard to pinpoint exactly what is causing irritation or allergic reactions just by reading labels, Katta suggests consulting a dermatologist.

TENNIS TIPS

By USPTA/PTR Master Professional Fernando Velasco

How To Execute The Forehand Drop Shot In previous newsletters, I offered tips on how to hit the forehand groundstroke, the two-handed backhand, the one-handed backhand, the forehand volley, the two handed backhand volley, the serve, the forehand half-volley, the one-handed backhand volley, the overhead “smash”, the forehand service return, the backhand service return, the forehand high volley approach shot, the two handed high volley approach shot, the one-handed high volley approach shot, the forehand lob, the two-handed backhand lob and the one-handed backhand lob. In this issue, I will offer instructions on how to execute the Forehand Drop Shot. This shot is used when a player is deep on the baseline and returns a short soft ball. The player hitting the drop shop is forcing the opponent to run toward the net. This ball should be hit high enough to clear the net and almost bounce back toward the net. If the player running for the shot can get it on the first bounce, it will likely be off balance and will be forced to make an error or return for an easy put away volley. In the illustrations, Fernando Velasco, Manager and Director of Tennis at the Grey Rock Tennis Club, shows the proper technique to execute this stroke. This shot can also be executed from the base line when the opponent is expecting a deep return of a serve.

Step 1: The Back Swing: When Fernando detects the ball landing short and high, he starts his back swing high and compacted. He is using the continental grip and keeping his eyes focused on the flight of the ball. His left hand is up front to keep the proper body balance. Step 2: The Point of Contact: Fernando is now ready to perform the drop shot. His eyes are now focused on the point of contact and the face of the racket is angled up to create the underspin on the ball. His goal is to keep his head still. His left hand is still in front and his weight is shifting toward his left foot. Step 3: The Follow Through: The success of a drop shot is to keep the ball on the strings as long as possible. Fernando is almost “cupping” the ball during the follow through. Fernando’s grip is relaxed and the head of the racket is pointing toward the sky. His left shoulder is almost opening to the net and his eyes are following the path of the ball. Step 4: The Ready Position: Once Fernando finishes the stroke, his goal is to follow the path of the drop shot. If he created a good drop shot and sees his opponent running with the head of the racket down, Fernando will move closer to the net or anticipate the angle shot. More likely it will be an easy sitter for a put away volley.

JOIN US FOR GOLF AND A GREAT CAUSE!

FOLLOW UP ON YOUR HEART HEALTH Eating healthy and exercising are well known tips to keep your heart healthy, but doctors at Baylor College of Medicine say don't forget about the follow-ups. "Many times people will see a doctor and receive a diagnosis of high cholesterol or blood pressure, for example, but they won't follow up with another appointment," said Dr. Joseph Coselli, professor of surgery at Baylor. "These secondary doctor visits are needed to monitor progression of risk factors and to help find the most effective treatment options." Coselli recommends asking your doctor some important questions: • What is a healthy weight for me? • What does a balanced diet consist of? • How do I quit smoking? • What exercises should I add to my daily routine? • What health screenings should I have? • When should I follow up with my next appointment? "You have to be responsible for your health and make important changes to keep your heart healthy," Coselli said.
