A scar appears when your skin patches itself from a wound triggered by an infection, surgery, accident or inflammation. Scars may vary in shape and size and typically twitch out as reddish in color and dense and fades over time, or turn sunken, lumpy or flat. From time to time your scar may get hypertrophic (bigger) or develop into a keloid (a predominantly big overgrown scar) and you may need to get it removed. Numerous scar removal procedures are obtainable and this post takes a comprehensive look at laser scar removal therapy. Continue reading “Acne Scar Removal via Surgery: The Basics” »
What if you could completely change your skin in less than a month? What if you did less, not more, to make it happen? As a product junkie, I’d typically be apt to cast a skeptical eye at this proposition, but the Olay 28 Day Challenge tempted me. After all, I’m not one to resist a challenge.

If we’re being Â honest, literally everyone looks better with a tan. Of course, there are boundaries where tasteful tan ends and Oompa Loompa begins. How to find the sweet spot without getting sun spots?
The answer lies in spray – but the right spray. Not all spray tans are created equal. Popular machine sprays can’t see your body, resulting in splotchy bits and odd coloration. And sometimes the pigment isn’t as natural looking, so unless you’re going for Carrot Top, it might not look too chic.

#ad Ladies, we’re getting super real today. Â Faint-of-heart boys might want to cover their ears.
As women, we’re expected to look — and smell — great all the time, even at the gym (thanks to Instagram, where the fit-chicks look polished and fab hip-thrusting 200 pounds). Unfortunately, we can barely navigate the difficulties of life much less a HIIT workout while smelling like a rose. Things just.. aren’t always fresh, especially through a sweat sesh.

#Olay #ad #AgelessÂ Youthfulness will always be in style, but I feel like lately it’s had even more of a resurgence. Just look at our recent music: the Chainsmokers bravely proclaim “we ain’t never getting older”, Troye Sivan’s aptly named “Youth” notes “we’ve no time for getting old”… are we in denial, or is this goal of permanent youth actually *gasp* achievable?
“Sure,” many of you smirk, “with the right surgeon.” Reality TV alone is proof that a youthful appearance can be bought, but the price tag is no joke. Or is it? Can we reverse the hands of time without taking out a home equity line of creditÂ to foot the bill on poisonous injectables, irreversible surgical procedures or celeb-endorsed $300 ointments made of only the finest free-range bald eagle spit?
The answer is yes. Ladies, welcome to the future. Gone are the days when we had to step beyond the drugstore doors and shell out makeup-counter dollars to get a decent quality skincare product. It’s 2017, Â and youth is now within your budget.
But don’t those pricey products work better? That’s what the snobby counter girl WANTS you to think, but the only real added benefits go on her commission check. Consider this: Good Housekeeping Institute did a study on 10 top prestige beauty creams (including one with a $440 price tag), and drugstore powerhouse Olay’s Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream outperformed them ALL. Say what? Continue reading “How I’m never getting older – or poorer. #Olay #ad #Ageless” »
