    Each year, Skin Cancer Awareness Month casts an important spotlight on skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in the United States.

  • The Truth Behind Anti-Aging Claims

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    The anti-aging movement has fostered an increased public awareness that many of the cutaneous changes associated with aging can now be prevented and reversed. Yet sorting through anti-aging claims in today’s skin care market can often become a lesson in separating fact from fiction. It’s important to look beyond the buzzwords. For example, topical products that tout ingredient call-outs like hyaluronic acid or collagen may very well contain these substances; however, the molecules are too large to penetrate the skin. Many over-the-counter products may be formulated with specialty ingredients, but in low concentrations that are not likely to deliver any real benefit. Even with proper ingredients ...

  • The Shelf Life of Skin Care Products

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    Like most consumer products on the market today, your skin care essentials have a shelf life. And while a product’s lifespan can vary from six months to two years or more, its long-term efficacy ultimately depend on its ingredients, packaging and storage. With the exception of many natural and organic options, skin care products are formulated with a combination of preservatives that help provide a broad, balanced spectrum of effect against bacteria, yeast and mold fungi. However, when a product is opened, air and bacteria may begin to gradually degrade the ingredients, thereby lessening its efficacy. Factors such as sunlight, heat and humidity may also cause degradation. Certain ingredients ...

  • How to Avoid Acne Scars

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    Almost all of us have experienced acne at some point.  According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it’s the most common skin condition in the country. For some patients, severe acne can lower self-esteem, and acne scars only prolong these emotional side effects. Fortunately, through prevention and treatment, it is possible to improve acne and reduce the potential for scarring. Acne occurs when a mix of dead skin cells and excess sebum becomes trapped in a hair follicle. Non-inflammatory acne is characterized by whiteheads and blackheads, while inflammatory acne includes papules, pustules, and often-painful cysts and nodules. Inflammatory acne most often leads to scarring, as the rupture ...

  • Eat Your Way to More Beautiful Skin

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    The best healthy-skin plan encompasses proper skin care, lifestyle and diet, so it’s no surprise that good eating habits—or lack thereof—may affect the health and appearance of your skin. Certain foods go above and beyond, offering antioxidant benefits that cannot be achieved through skin care alone. When selecting foods for their skin-beautifying properties, think variety—and color. Eating a wide range of vibrant, colorful fruits and vegetables ensures you’re getting a daily dose of the antioxidants known to ward off skin oxidation. Try berries, citrus fruits, cherries, broccoli, kale, spinach, sweet potatoes, and colored peppers, to name a few. Incorporate them into your daily diet ...

  • Why Sunscreen Is Hot Anytime of Year

    Posted on March 3, 2015 by SkinMedica.

    It’s still winter weather in some parts of the country, when low temperatures dictate certain skin care choices: intensified moisturizers, more emollient lip balms. And while sunscreen may not be top-of-mind, UV rays are just as present in the winter months, making sunscreen a must-have in winter and throughout the year. To understand the effects of sun damage, it’s important to recognize the role that collagen plays in healthy skin. Collagen acts as the underlying support structure that keeps the skin youthful-looking and firm. When skin is exposed to the sun, UV rays penetrate the skin’s surface to the dermis causing abnormalities in the collagen fibers. As these fibers begin to weaken ...
