  • Sunscreen Confusion? I've got your back!

    Friday, August 22, 2014 - 2:00am

    First, it is important to know that there are basically 2 types of sunscreen: Chemical and Physical.   

    Chemical Sunscreens (e.g. avobenzone, helioplex, and other's with unpronounceable names) undergo a chemical reaction with the UV rays, absorbing them and then release the extra energy as heat. The sunscreen's chemical reaction is only for a limited amount of time, hence you will have to reapply after 2-3 hours to ensure you are still protected.

  • Throw this product in the trash - St. Ives Apricot Walnut Scrub

    Saturday, July 26, 2014 - 2:00am



    This is one of my biggest 'pet peeve' products to hear my clients are using. Always they're complaining of breakouts, and they think that this can "scrub away" their acne. Some of them are using scrubs like these twice a day. How often you should exfoliate depends on your skin, but I very rarely advise exfoliation more than 4 times a week.
