  • Pores, Peels, Pigmentation and Procrastination

    By: Genevieve Miller  

    As I approach my 40th birthday, I’m starting to notice changes in my skin that are impacting everything: how I apply makeup, which products I now can/can’t use, recognizing that I should’ve adopted a better skincare regimen ages ago, beating myself up for knowing this but opting to do absolutely nothing about it, etc. etc.  

  • Why Your Skincare Regimen Might Be All Wrong

    Most women claim to have sensitive skin, but as it turns out, few women do. You might be thinking, “Wow, Jenny thanks for that scintillating bit of news and who cares if I’m wrong about my sensitive skin, it can’t hurt to be on the safe side, right?  

  • Common Causes of So-Called “Broken Capillaries” and How to Treat Them

    By Allison Schmidt 

    I’ve had allergies for as long as I can remember. Like clockwork, every time a plant blooms (or the wind blows, or I haven’t dusted in a while,) I get a sneezing attack. Likewise, I’ve always got Kleenex at the ready. My seemingly incessant sneezing, chronically excessive nose blowing, and rubbing/itching has put too much pressure on the skin around my nose and after several years, has resulted in a few broken capillaries.  

  • Can Too Much Collagen be a Bad Thing?

    My Adventures with a Stubborn Keloid Scar 

    By Allison Schmidt 

    A keloid scar is basically the only time I think of collagen as a bad thing, because too much of it following an injury or a mole removal procedure, (in my case), can actually cause a scar that is raised and larger than the initial injury, which can also be itchy and painful.  

  • Cellulite 101: What Causes It and What Treatment Options Are Available?

    We live in a world of filters and Photoshop. However, live streaming on social media prevents that pristine filtering of flaws – and one that might be fairly noticeable on camera is cellulite. For many, depending on the severity, it is an unflattering sight they’d like to either conceal or get rid of forever.  

  • Doctor Approved Go-To Fixes for Crow’s Feet

    While you won't ever find me with binoculars up to my eyes, keeping track of all the different species of birds I've seen, you might find me purchasing artwork, linens or china with birds on them, or pointing out an especially gorgeous bird visiting our backyard feeder. As a child, I saved injured birds by putting them in shoeboxes with air holes in the lid and handing them over to the care of my dad who always declared them cured the next day because they flew away in the night. 

  • How Common Are Stress-Related Skin Issues?

    We’re all under a great deal of stress. Whether it’s difficult relationships or work situations, sometimes that stress takes a toll on our bodies. 

  • Not All Hair Removal Lasers Are Created Equal - Which Is The Best Choice For YOU?

    It’s interesting that you never hear much about the specific lasers used for hair removal. Ads, Groupons, med-spas and those ladies that hold house parties like to give you the blanket “laser hair removal” term, but there isn’t just one type of laser - there are many, and one might be a better fit for you than another. Before choosing to spend the dough on laser treatments, you should probably educate yourself on the different options available and which may be best for your specific needs. 

  • The Latest in Tattoo Removal Techniques: Because No One Should be Branded with Their Tramp Stamp for Eternity, (unless they want to be)

    I subscribe to a certain theory in regards to the monumental decision to brand oneself with a tattoo. Namely, before one gets a tattoo they should imagine themselves looking at that tattoo in twenty years, or, at the very least, after the tequila wears off. Case-in-point: I’ll never forget a guy I dated who showed me his Hebrew-worded tattoo and very matter-of-factly told me that it meant “strength” when, (unbeknownst to him and because I am fluent in Hebrew,) I knew that it actually meant “cow.” This date’s misguided tattoo is a story I relay to anyone I know who is about to get inked. 

  • What if Your Under-Eye Bags Are Something Else?

    I’m constantly being asked to write about under-eye bags - well, specifically how to get rid of them. What I’ve come to discover is that there is a lot of misinformation out there about potential remedies. There are “miracle creams” and such, offered at every price-point, claiming de-puffing capabilities that I have personally come to discover are just lies – because the truth of the matter is genetics often play a role – especially when it comes to bags and the causes and fixes for them. Bottom line is that we all hate them.
