Take Back Summer Sun Damage!

“What’s that purple spot on my leg”

That isn’t a bruise; in fact, those are spider veins, and they don’t go away on their own.  Spider veins are purple, blue, or red lines on your legs or thighs, or red lines on the cheeks or nose.  We’re not talking about the bulging, ropey, painful veins that some people get; those need invasive… Read more >

Is Sugar Giving You Wrinkles?

Researchers have found that elevated blood glucose causes skin aging and wrinkling.  They found that in both diabetics and non-diabetics, elevated levels of blood sugar resulted in the production of glycotoxins known as advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) which cross-link with collagen fibers and result in a loss of skin elasticity. The crux of this data… Read more >

Foods that Fight Wrinkles

Numerous studies have found that foods rich in antioxidants, potassium, and vitamins A and C limit the skin-damaging effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. These foods do not replace sunscreen, nor do they make it acceptable to fry the skin in cancer accelerating tanning beds. Foods rich in antioxidants should be eaten every day of the year… Read more >

Think you’re Getting Enough SPF from Make-Up? NOT A CHANCE!

Based on FDA regulations, determining the SPF assigned to a product requires clinical testing in which the product is applied at a concentration of 2mg/cm2 to the test subjects.  This is dramatically more than the concentrations of cosmetics people apply in actual use.  According to Leslie Baumann, MD, board-certified dermatologist and CEO of Baumann Cosmetic… Read more >
