  2. Can You Really Change Your Complexion?

    Can You Really Change Your Complexion?

    How many times have you leaned in close to the mirror . . . . and cringed?
    Do you hide under a deep, wide-brimmed hat pulled way down low?
    Have you ever seen someone's flawless skin in passing and felt a pang of jealousy?

    It doesn't have to be that way.

    You're stuck in your skin, but not with it. You really can change your complexion.

    A visit to your derm shouldn't be just because you found a pre-cancerous lesion you need to have removed. Often, if you're not happy with the way your skin is looking, there are things you can do to help, and many of them are as simple as changes to your daily routine. You'll be surprised at the results you can get by tweaking a few of your habits just a bit.

  3. You're Seeing Skin Changes: When To Be Concerned

    You're Seeing Skin Changes: When To Be Concerned

    Everyone's skin goes through some changes over the course of time. Some aging changes are subtle, some not so much.

    But how do you know what types of changes you should be concerned about? How do you know if you should reach for your Advanced Vitamin-C Brightening Serum or to put your dermatologist on speed dial?

    Aging Changes

    As your body ages, your skin does, too. That's just a fact of life. Collagen and elastin break down and don't regenerate as fast as they used to. Fine lines and wrinkles start to appear, and liver spots may make themselves known.

  4. The Manliest Of Men Should Care For Their Skin, Too

    The Manliest Of Men Should Care For Their Skin, Too

    It doesn't matter how burly you are, how long your beard, or how high your man bun. It doesn't matter if you drive a KingRanch F-350 or a Mazda Miata. Men, you have skin. And just like the engine under your hood, it requires care and maintenance if you want to get the most life out of it.

    Taking good care of your skin should be second nature: like eating a good breakfast, enjoying a healthy run, or laughing at a belly-ripping joke. But it doesn't need to be difficult or time-consuming. A commitment to taking care of your skin doesn't mean you need to spend an eternity in front of your bathroom vanity every day, lamenting over the size of your pores and the lack of "beautiful glow." It doesn't require a desire to be the next GQ model.

    It just requires some forethought and a decision to make it happen.

    There are a few basic differences

  5. "Aging" Shouldn't Mean You Should Be OK With Age Spots

    Age spots are a normal part of the aging process of your skin. They're just something that happens as you get older, and there's nothing you can do about them.

    Right?

    Wrong!

    The hyperpigmentation from age spots can be known by a host of other names: senile lentigo, lentigines, sun spots, or liver spots. These dark spots appear on the face, arms, and hands as we age.

    They're only nicknamed "age spots" because they typically don't start to make an appearance until later in life, but they actually have very little to do with the "normal" aging process.

    What they really are is evidence of your history of not taking very good care of your skin. They can be a major side effect of sun damage, appearing on the areas of our skin that get the most exposure to UVA/UVB rays.

    I Don't Need Sunscreen In the Winter . . . . Or Do I?

    Winter can be such a sad time for some people. Many attribute that to a lack of sunlight, so they slack off on protecting their skin from UV rays during the cold season. But is that really a good plan?

    Do you really need sunscreen in the winter?

    Dermatologists give that question a resounding yes!

    That may seem counterintuitive to you, so let's talk about it!

    Sunscreen is a Must All Year Long

    It is true that, in many climates, the UVB rays of the sun are weaker. Those are the radiation rays responsible for sunburns. But the UVA rays are just as strong. We'll talk more on that later.
