The New 'It' Ingredients for Treating Hyperpigmentation

Treating hyperpigmentation is tricky and often frustrating, so it's no surprise that Latinas cite hyperpigmentation as one of their top skin care concerns. Hyperpigmentation is caused by overproduction of the pigment melanin, and refers to any area of skin that's darker than surrounding skin. It can be caused by anything from a mosquito bite to hormonal fluctuations, says Miami-based Heather Woolery-Lloyd, M.D.   read more


10 Powdered Cleansers for Glowy Skin

Some powders, like those found in envelopes circa 2001, make us want to run in the other direction. Others, like the new class of exfoliating face cleansers, make us want to dive into a vat of it, face-first (and emerge softer, smoother and glowier than ever).   read more


10 Habits That Piss off Your Dermatologist

Admit it: Sometimes you think you know better than your dermatologist.

The Only Way Ever to Apply Your Skin Care Products

What comes first? Forget the chicken and the egg, we're talking about our skin care products, like serum, moisturizer, face oil and sunscreen. A cabinet full of products to keep you blemish-, wrinkle- and sun spot-free means nothing if you don't know in what order to apply them. Instead of slapping them on and crossing our fingers, we conducted a skin care nerd-out session with board certified dermatologists Dendy Engelman, M.D., and Craig Kraffert, M.D., who is also the president of Korean skincare line Amarté. We grilled them to find out which products should be applied first, last and everywhere in between so that they can perform exactly as they're supposed to. Here, these derms school us in the exhaustive process of layering skin care.   read more

But when you have a darker complexion, it's easy to think that all of these sun-related skin issues don't apply, because you erroneously think you're immune to the sun's aging rays. The harsh reality is, UVA and UVB rays are dangerous to everybody, no matter how dark your complexion is. And where more serious consequences like skin cancer are concerned, dark-skinned people may be at an even greater risk.   read more
