  • Bieber Bangs and Saving Your Skin from Sun Damage

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    Did you know that the way you wear your hair could affect the health of your skin? In fact, bangs that sweep across the forehead à la Justin Bieber may be more than just a fashion statement—this hairstyle may actually provide doctors with a unique opportunity to talk to teens about sun protection, according to experts. Doctors at Johns Hopkins University recently made an interesting discovery in some of their teen patients with the Bieber hairstyle: stark differences between the skin covered by bangs and the skin on the rest of their faces. The skin under the bangs was paler and had almost no freckles, while freckles covered the skin on the patients' cheeks and noses. The visible effects ...

  • Spruce up your Cleansing Routine

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    Starting slumber with a clean slate—or face, that is—is key to better beauty sleep. Properly cleansing and removing makeup at night allows the skin to breathe, helps keep pores clear, and washes away the environmental pollutants and impurities that may contribute to oxidative damage. In fact, sleeping in makeup means that free radicals that accumulate on the skin throughout the day linger all night; when done repeatedly, this can prematurely age the skin by encouraging the breakdown of collagen. Furthermore, when eye makeup is not removed properly, it can lead to eye irritation or potential infection. Like most skin care products, cleansers are not one-size-fits-all. While a gentle face ...

  • Skin Care for the Fabulous Forties

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    In our 20s, we were busy figuring out "who am I?". We were going to school, going out on the town, going on dates, selecting our chosen careers and deciding what direction our lives should take. There was a lot of uncertainty—and there should be at that age. It was our time to make mistakes, fall down and learn how to get back up. Our 30s were spent with long, thankless hours at the office proving ourselves, raising kids, pediatrician visits, soccer games, work deadlines, ballet recitals, and sitting up all night when the kids had the flu—and I wouldn't trade any of that for all the money in the world. But I woke up on my 40th birthday feeling like a switch had flipped and a light had come ...

  • The Power of Probiotics

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    With words like L. acidophilus, Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium popping up more frequently on store shelves, you’re likely familiar with probiotics. Since gaining popularity for their numerous health benefits, probiotics have gone mainstream, appearing in many supplements and foods. And now, these “good” bacteria have made their way into the skin care arena, showing promise as a supplemental treatment for skin conditions like acne and rosacea. Probiotics are live microorganisms—found in yogurt, certain cheeses and fermented foods like miso and sauerkraut—that help to regulate digestion, improve immunity, and may even contribute to weight loss, according to recent findings. While ...

  • Does Your Dermatologist Make the Grade?

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    Just like any other part of the body, the skin requires preventative and specialized care to look its best.

  • Spotlight On: Volume Restoration

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    Look at an array of youthful faces, and they’re bound to have one thing in common: volume. This look of fullness results from skin having the necessary structural support to look smooth and supple, and to reflect light. And while the etiology of volume loss may be attributed to many factors, modern, integrative approaches to volume restoration address both the underlying cause and visible effects. Volume loss is one of the primary signs of aging. As facial volume naturally diminishes, skin is no longer stretched as tightly over the surface, creating areas marked by hollowing, shadows and folds. Anatomic changes—evidenced by shifts in bone and loss of bony mass—cause skin and soft tissue ...

  • Bid Dry Skin Adieu

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    As the long-awaited signs of spring begin to appear, for many, our skin offers a constant reminder of a particularly punishing winter. During the colder months, a combination of frigid temperatures, low humidity and forced indoor heat can strip the skin of much-needed moisture. Furthermore, ongoing moisture loss impairs the skin’s barrier function and can exacerbate conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and rosacea. Transforming dry skin is about replenishing lost moisture—both from within and via the application of hydrating skin care products. Drink plenty of water and incorporate fruits and vegetables with a high water content into your diet, such as cucumbers, melon, spinach and strawberries. ...
