12 Best Sunscreens for Your Face

Not to rain on your summer parade, but here are a few facts that should wake you up from your margarita-and-sun-induced coma, forcing you to take a big whiff of sunscreen: The incidence of melanoma (a deadly form of skin cancer) isn't going anywhere -- an estimated 73,870 new cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the US in 2015. If that doesn't scare you, this will: 80 percent of the aging that dermatologists see is due to excess sun exposure, since it can break down the collagen and elastin in your skin and cause more wrinkles.   See products

Your Be-All-End-All Guide to Treating Keratosis Pilaris

On the street, we call it chicken skin. But in the dermatologist's office, they call it Keratosis Pilaris (KP) -- pronounced "Pie-LAIR-is," like the "pie" you eat and the "air" you breathe. Odds are you're familiar with this skin condition: KP consists of those little red bumps that commonly speckle the back of the arms and thighs, and it effects a whopping 40 percent of the population.

Pretty much everyone can benefit from having acid in her routines -- but you shouldn't pick just any ol' AHA cleanser. If you wanna get nerdy about it, the various alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids (like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid and malic acid) work differently on a molecular level, and choosing which one to use can make or break your skin.
