The Doctors and mommy correspondent, Brooke Burke, reveal how to look younger, have better sex and be a better parent with The Doctors' Guide to Better Health.
Looking Better: In Your Hands
To combat age spots and wrinkles on your hands, it is important to protect them from the sun. "You want to put SPF on your hands," OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson says. "We always think about our face, but we forget about other places that are exposed to sun, like our ears, our neck, our shoulders [and hands]. You've got to make sure you put SPF on [those places]."
Dr. Lisa recommends using products like RevaléSkin lotion, which has an SPF of 15 and contains CoffeeBerry extract, which has a high concentration of nutrients and antioxidants that help combat sun damage and aging. "I heard that the way they figured this out [was that] the people who were picking these CoffeeBerries found that they always had smooth, soft hands," E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork says.
Brooke explains that to keep her hands soft and youthful, she rubs excess facial product into her hands.
"The hands give it away," plastic surgeon Dr. Drew Ordon says. "You have to take the same care of your hand skin as you do your facial skin."

Better Sex: Use Your Senses
You've heard of the G-spot, but what about the A and U spots? The Doctors takes to the streets of Los Angeles to see if passers-by can point out where these sensual spots are located on the body.
Dr. Lisa points out where the G, A and U spots are located, but says that sex isn't only about finding exact spots. "I'm not a big fan of these A-spot, G-spot, U-spot, C-spot, Z-spot, whatever," she says. "Every woman is different, and every woman has different buttons that make her aroused; some are even up in the breast."
"The takeaway for everybody should be to get to know your partner," Dr. Travis says. "Not just anatomy, not just these 'spots.'"
The Doctors asked viewers, via a Twitter poll, what they feel is the most attractive part of the opposite sex. Below are the five top-rated responses for each gender:
Most Attractive Part of a Man
• Eyes: 37 percent
• Smile/Lips: 25 percent
• Arms: 9 percent
• Broad Shoulders: 7 percent
• Butt: 6 percent
Most Attractive Part of a Woman
• Eyes: 24 percent
• Smile/Lips: 19 percent
• Chest: 17 percent
• Butt: 15 percent
• Legs: 9 percent
"I buy it, because eyes and smiles were first and second," Dr. Travis says. "It's the first thing you see, no matter what. The first thing you [do] is you look into someone's eyes."
The Doctors and Brooke Burke demonstrate how different smells can affect libido.

"A lot of people think that music sets the mood," Dr. Travis says. "In fact, loud music can actually increase arousal, and even sometimes voices [can]."

Better Parenting: Stay Organized
Kathy has three children who go to three different schools that start at the same time. She asks Brooke, a mother of four, how to be better organized and get the morning off to a smooth start.
"I totally understand your position," Brooke says. "And that's what it's all about, being organized. With multiple children, I cannot run my life, not even on my phone calendar, without a really great paper calendar.
"What I do, because I have kids in different schools, too, is I sync the school calendar with [the paper] calendar," she adds.
Brooke uses a sticker system that places different stickers on the calendar for different events, such as doctor's appointments, play dates and days off. "Everything that's going on in the kids' lives related to school is on this calendar," she says. "And without it, I'm in big trouble."
In addition to her own calendar, Brooke uses a colorful paper calendar for her kids, so they know what is on the schedule every day. Other tips for an easier morning include setting the breakfast table and making lunches the night before.
"I take breakfast orders at night so I know what everybody wants, and we're not making decisions with cranky kids in the morning," Brooke says. "I'll pack a really healthy snack drawer so everybody can pick [snacks] out and help mom out a little bit.
"Everybody pitch in a little bit," she adds. "All those little things make a really big difference. You've got to count on your kids a little bit to help you out."
