Back to School and Back to Routine Sep 13th, 2021

Summer is officially over! However, there are things that don’t change with the seasons. And as we all get back into routines (like writing blog posts…), this is a simple reminder that you should have some sort of regular skin care routine that involves the following steps:  STEP 1: Wash....

The Self Tanning Experiment May 3rd, 2021

Summer is here! And while I was convinced the twilight series would make pale, sparkling skin become in vogue, it’s been a decade and everyone still wants to be tan. But no one wants skin cancer, so to get that sun kissed look without the tanning bed and without the...

Common complaints. Easy fixes. Mar 16th, 2021

Common things I see and hear about all day. And things I think all day long. And hope that I can help fix easily. Patient: “My head itches.” "My head is scaling." "I have a dry scalp." "I think I have dandruff...what is dandruff?" "I CAN'T stop picking at my...

The less loved sites: Eyelids, Necks and Arms Feb 10th, 2021

Not all skin is created equal. But we tend to focus most of our attention..and dollars...on our faces. Duh. But if you can, give that surrounding and special skin some attention. The right attention. Because the wrong stuff will make you wind up with a rash. And then we’ll be...

It's 2021: Time to make SPF your BFF Jan 1st, 2021

While there seem to be endless steps and options for your skin care routine, if you stick with any step, make it sun protection. SPF should be worn all day. Every day. Rain, shine, summer, winter. Those UV rays can make it through any amount of cloud cover. Anyone else...

Correction, part 2: Tone and Texture Nov 9th, 2020

This entire series is about simplifying and breaking down the skin care aisle(s). Because there are so many products promising to fix so many things, we’re on our second post about correction. We’ve reviewed the best new and classic anti-aging products that focus on fine lines, but here we’ll talk...

Correction: Because we're all trying to #BYAB and BeYoung Oct 18th, 2020

There are a lot of products out there claiming to turn back time. Try to find one you like -something that doesn’t peel off your face or cause your bank account to send you an alert- with one or more of the following anti-aging ingredients in it.  *Retinoids: The classic...

Serum Skepticism Sep 28th, 2020

With serums having a moment, there is more product decision fatigue. Trying to figure out serums though is not unlike other products and goes something like: What does it do? Do I need it? Wowzers, that price….Is it worth the money? Is it worth the 10 seconds it will take to...

My hobby is skin care. Because I don't own a Peloton. Sep 14th, 2020

Moisturizing: while the word moist alone is cringe-worthy, don't avoid this step! Regardless of skin type (oily, dry, combination, mature, young, etc...). Any time you wash your face, your skin is drier afterwards. As water evaporates, your skin's water evaporates with it. While it may seem like a chore, locking...

Product Decision Fatigue? Aug 17th, 2020

It seems like there has been an explosion in skin care products. The skin care section of my Target has even been fanci-fied. TBH, I find it overwhelming... and I know what I’m looking for! So, in an effort to help, I’ll be starting a series of posts about skin...

Women Supporting Women Jul 31st, 2020

Whenever I have a question, I admit that my first instinct is to google. But after that, I rely on a number of group texts and chats with my mom, sisters, friends and colleagues. I don't know where I would be without these ladies. Thanks to all of the women...

Wear Your Sunscreen Jul 2nd, 2020

  I always say, you know you're doing it right if you're embarassing yourself! Don't forget your back! Get a friend to help you out. The back is the most common site for melanoma in men (it's legs in ladies). The head and neck deserve extra attention. The ears and...
