TGIF!!! Today I am bringing you Part Two of this Scar series and we have Dr. Megan Jack, MD and Plastic Surgeon weighing in on the different types of scars.  SKB: “So, what are the most common types of scars?” DJ: “So, we talked about what a normal scar looks like, and there’s two main abnormal scars that we’ll see.

I believe that everyone should be on an Antioxidant as part of their basic skincare routine!  “Skin is naturally built for repair. When bombarded by environmental assaults, skin must focus on neutralizing oxidative damage, limiting its capacity for reparative functions. Daily use of pure vitamin C antioxidants, when properly formulated to penetrate skin, protect against damage, enhancing self-repair to reduce signs of aging.” -Dr. Sheldon Pinnell M.D., Founder of SkinCeuticals What is Vitamin C and What Does it Do for The Skin?

Now I’m going to introduce you to Stem Cells, another powerful anti-aging tool for your skincare toolbox!

As the existing cells begin to deplete, the proteins within them do as well. These proteins are vital to the support of the skin’sRead More →
