    Like you, I don’t like to look pasty white in the summer but I also know the dangers that can occur with repeated sun exposure and tanning. I’m so fair that I almost always burn in the sun.  Over the last two summers I’ve done some personal “research” to find the better self-tanners on the market.  I’ve tried all of these products on myself. I should also disclose that I don’t work for any of these companies or products; these are just my personal opinions. I tried many products over the past few years and will only talk about the ones I liked the most.

    First on the list is a product called “tan towel.” Each come individually sealed in a packer so each “towel” is fresh. Once opened it was easily applied all over my arms, legs and face. It dried quickly so I was able to dress in a matter of minutes and it has a fresh smell too! I applied it before bed so when I woke up the color developed and it was a nice tan color- no orange! There were some areas I missed because there is no color to your skin when you apply it, but you get better at applying it with time.

    Second on the list is a product called Mine Tan Foam. It came with an applicator mit so my palms don’t get tanned.  It has a fantastic coffee and coconut scent so I felt like I was on vacation. It was easy to apply because there was a light brown pigment in the product so I could tell where I applied it. It took a little longer to dry so a thin layer is better. I slept with it on and the next morning I woke up with a really glowing tan. Most people though I has laid in the sun!

    Lastly, if you are looking for a less expensive tan, Jergens Natural Glow actually worked pretty well. In my opinion, it doesn’t have a bad smell. Even though my skin tone is light, I though the “medium to dark” lotion gave me a better tan color. The “light to medium” lotion gave me a more orange color.

    So, these are my favorite self-tanner picks. A few tips: follow the directions on the bottle, always exfoliate ahead of time and wash your hands after applying so you don’t have tan palms. 

Happy Self-Tanning!

    The Skin is the first thing people notice. There are many office treatments to help smooth your skin. As your dermatology providers we can inject the Botox and Juvederm and then, peel, laser or microneedle your skin but, to maintain your glow you need to adhere to a great home skin care regimen as well.
     Just as with physical fitness one must exercise and eat right otherwise you relapse to your former self.
     Our skin is constantly renewing itself and a home skin care regimen that includes good sunscreen, antioxidants and growth factors enhances the glow that keeps skin looking great. Skin health like physical fitness excels when we give it our full attention. Office treatments will definitely make your skin look good but to look great you need to maintain that glow with a great skin care at home.
    We are here to give you the best advice and to empower you to take control over the aging process.
    What you can do for yourself at home is so important! Let us help you c!hoose the products

The cold, dreary winter blues may be almost to an end, so with this being said it may be time for all of us to do some extra moisturizing to quench our skin's thirst, due to the havoc that these chilly temperatures have played on our skin. By moisturizing skin every day, you will look and feel younger, now who doesn't want that?!?

Here are a few tips I recommend when it comes to hydrating your skin: 

1. Avoid hot showers and limit shower time, this dehydrates your skin even more, while removing oils from your skin 

2. Avoid strong soaps and fragranced lotions- these also strip the natural oils from your skin

3. Pat dry after your shower or bath- this allows for some moisture to still remain on your skin 

4. Apply your lotion or cream right after the shower when your skin is still damp

Follow these tips and your skin will drink it up!

We would like to make you aware of a promotion we are running for all of February! If you purchase any strength Skin Medica Retinol this month, then you receive a free sunscreen! Retinols are important for maintenance of healthy skin! They are creams that can have a powerful impact on your skin. If you don't know, they are a topical form of vitamin A and when used they help slough off our skin cells more rapidly than normal. Retinols can help reduce brown spots on your skin and make it more even toned. They can minimize fine lines and wrinkles and also stimulate collagen production over time! That's why it's an important step in skin care! It is important to wear sunscreen daily while using a retinol because they make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. That's why we paired a sunscreen with a purchase of a retinol this month!

We would like to share some exciting news! We are hosting an open house and a chemical peel event next month! It will be held on Monday, August 18, 2014 from 3-7pm right in the foyer of our office. Our Licensed Aestheticians will be present to discuss products and cosmetic treatments offered in our office. We decided to title the event "Glow and Go" because we are offering a free chemical peel to the first 24 patients who register to attend. This peel is specifically designed to illuminize your skin and give it a glow! There is a registration fee of $100 to reserve your spot. However, your registration fee can be used to purchase products.

There will be live demonstrations of Botox and cosmetic fillers such as Juvederm. Our Physician Assistants, Susan and Emily, will be available to discuss these procedures and they may be able to perform a treatment for you that evening as well. There will be refreshments available and a basket to raffle off too! Call our office to reserve your spot. Space and time is limited to take advantage of these and other opportunities only offered that evening!
