  1. Don't Leave Them Out: Men Need Skincare, Too

    Don't Leave Them Out: Men Need Skincare, Too

    So many men wouldn't be caught dead standing around the water cooler discussing their skin and skin care routines. But whether they want to admit it or not, men need to have at least a basic skin care regimen to keep their complexions clear and their skin healthy. So, it's time we start talking about it.

    We're going to talk about basic care. There's really no need for any major muss or fuss. Chemical peels or weekly masque treatments aren't necessary (but they never hurt, either).

    Skin care is important, even for those of the manly-man persuasion, so we're going to talk about it out loud. Men suffer the same skin care woes and troubles as women. Things like acne, sensitive skin, and razor burn can all be tackled with a little bit of smart elbow grease.

  2. Freckles: Cute or Foreshadowing?

    Freckles: Cute or Foreshadowing?

    Freckles can definitely be cute. Imagine that cute little red-headed girl with the smattering of freckles dotting her facial features.

    As more and more women are putting their makeup down and hiding their concealer and foundation, they're being celebrated for their own natural uniqueness. Women are proud of their complexions and the differences they can showcase.

    Freckle-faced people are now being celebrated. But there can be a problem with that.

    Freckles can foreshadow things to come. They can be a warning sign that you've spent too much unprotected time in the sun and you should be watchful of changes to your skin and be prepared for early signs of aging to appear. Your fair, freckled skin means you're probably more at risk for skin cancer.

    The Best Sources of Skin Friendly Antioxidants

    How many times have you heard:

    "Antioxidants are good for you."
    "Eat your fruits and veggies because you need antioxidants."
    "Look for skin care products rich in antioxidants."

    So, you probably get it: antioxidants are pretty fantastic. But when it comes to your skin, you may not have given much thought to where those antioxidants are coming from. Good skincare isn't just about utilizing quality topical products, but taking care of your skin from the inside, out, as well.

    After-Exercise Skincare

    We've all done it: finished our workout with no time left to shower before having to run to work. We just freshen up our makeup and splash on some perfume to mask the tell-tale stench of sweat.

    But this isn't the time to scrimp on skincare. This is a time when your skin will be screaming for a little TLC.

    You exercise to feel better. You exercise to look better. But to both look and feel your best, you need to also properly care for your skin to enhance the benefits of exercise - rather than work against them.

    You're just coming off of nine months worth of changes. You've been through aches, pains, discomfort, and unbalanced hormones. Your body did things you never thought were humanly possible - all in the name of love.

    You may have thought that the freak show, as it were, was over, but what you weren't prepared for was for your body to continue doing odd things and acting in weird ways, even weeks after your little bundle was delivered. You can definitely blame hormones for this.

    When to See a Dermatologist: Five Things to Watch Out for to Protect Your Skin

    No doubt you have heard the warnings about staying out of the sun to avoid aging your skin. While you may already know the dangers of the sun and the risk of skin cancer, this is not the only thing to blame for skin problems. There are a variety of skin issues that can be bothersome and effect quality of life.

    With so many over-the-counter skin care products readily available to treat everything from dry skin to acne, self-treating is often the first step. Along with self-treating your skin, it is important to understand when to seek the medical advice and treatment of a dermatologist.

    Here are five things to watch out for on your skin that should warrant a call to your dermatologist.

    Sexy and Beautiful In Your 40's

    Maintaining your youth is that elusive grail that seems like it's always out of reach. Especially once you turn your calendar into the big four-oh, it's quite common to start comparing your current self with a younger version of you. You start listing all of the things that you could do in your earlier years. You start remembering what your skin looked like before you were old enough to start counting the years away.

    You can get back to feeling sexy and beautiful again, even in your 40's. But just how do you go about it?

    While you can't turn back the clock, there are some things you can do to repair some of the damage done and move closer back to the shape you were in during your younger years. Fortunately, it's not as much about turning back the clock as it is about how you feel and what you do to take care of yourself. Being over 40 isn't

    Best Sources Of Natural Probiotics

    How are probiotics good for us? Let me count the ways!

    Well, they're almost too numerous to count, but we'll get to that in a little bit.

    Many people opt to take a dietary supplement, but the best sources of probiotics are in healthy foods, and they're really not all that difficult to find. We'll take a look at some of the best sources of natural probiotics.

    Good Bacteria vs. Bad Bacteria

    The GI tract and skin are both organs of detoxification. There needs to be a healthy microbiome in the gut to break down food, absorb nutrients, and eliminate toxins. There are actually good bacteria that live in your digestive system, and studies show that the balance or imbalance of bacteria is linked to overall health or disease. When things are out of balance, there are too many bad bacteria, and not enough good. A variety o

    When Is It Time To See a Dermatologist

    When making decisions on when to schedule appointments for skin care, everyone goes through the inner struggle of trying to decide when they should throw in the towel and make that appointment, and when it's okay to sit back and see where things go. We all suffer from breakouts from time to time. You may even deal with allergic rashes on occasion.

    But how do you really know when you should suffer through and tough it out, when you should visit your favorite esthetician, and when it's time to really get serious about calling your doctor.
