That is the question. You have probably heard of BB creams and more recently, CC creams. BB stands for beauty balm and CC stands for color correction. BB and CC creams have become very popular recently. In my opinion, they are an excellent addition to your daily skin care regimen. These creams are hybrid creams. Not only do they contain a light tint to provide light to medium coverage, they also contain zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to protect your skin from UV rays. In addition, they contain anti-aging ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, and moisturizers. You can even use them in combination with other anti-aging creams and serums.

Beware though, each cream has a different texture and feel. You can test different BB and CC creams out at cosmetic counters and cosmetic stores. Some creams do not contain enough sunblock to protect your skin. Remember to check labels when you are evaluating a BB/CC cream and look for zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in combination of at least 6%.

BB creams are my secret to great looking skin. They help protect, renew and even my skin tone while I'm wearing it! So, to answer the question to BB or not to BB, I say, yes to BB!

What happens when you see a Dermatologist for the first time? I want to give you an idea of what to expect and what you can do to prepare. You should know that we look at ALL of your skin. Most skin cancers appear on sun exposed areas. However, it can occur in areas where the sun doesn't shine. So, expect us to check those areas too! Don't worry. You won't be hanging out in your birthday suit. We have you keep your under garments on and provide you with a gown or drape to cover up with.

How to prepare:

- Remove all nail polish as skin cancer can hide under nail polish.

- Do not wear make-up. We want to see your skin without any camouflage.

- Don't have a tan. We like your skin to be in it's most natural state so we can determine what is normal and what is not. Plus, we don't like tans anyway.

- Wear loose fitting clothing so that it is easier to change.

- Circle any lesions you may be concerned about with a pen or make a list. This way we can address all of your concerns.

- Tell us about previous sunburns or your history of tanning bed use.

- Bring any products you may be using on your skin.

- Bring an updated medication list and know your medical history.

See you at your appointment!
