When you build your complete skin care routine, there are so many considerations to take into account. Do you have easy access to a dermatologist for prescription skin care? What is your budget? Prescription prices have soared out of reach for many, even with health insurance.
Women’s skin care and skin care products are traditionally advertised and discussed through commercials, print, television, and billboards. Men’s skin care and skin care products are not touched on with the same gusto used for women. Why is that?
Bloomberg News did some interesting investigative journalism recently. They hired a lab to test for aloe in the most popular, mass produced aloe vera gel products — including those sold by Wal-Mart, Target and CVS. Apparently, aloe vera gel products are a growing big business with over $146 million in sales last year and growing by […]
As a dermatologist, I never recommend a natural loofah for showering. They aren’t great for exfoliating and they don’t dry well. That perpetually damp loofah sitting in the shower is home to microbes that can cause infection on your skin.

It is usual within our busy schedules to neglect taking care of our skin. Is this happening to you?

Knowing your skin type is important. All skin care starts with clean skin that can absorb correcting products and has balanced hydration that supports a healthy skin barrier. Sensitive skin benefits from synthetic sensitive skin cleansers, or naturally made soaps that are rich in glycerin like the naturally best bar soap. Oily and acne prone skin needs more cleansing and toning to remove oil; the Naturally Hydrating Pore-Minimizing Toner is a great product to use for this skin type. Problem complexions such as acne, rosacea or seborrhea prone complexions need medicated cleansers like our Calming Zinc Bar. The key to great skin and getting the most out of your skin regiment is knowing your skin type, and the implications that come with it.

Hi Dr. Bailey, I’ve read your posts on Retin-A and have had a question about a specific severe dry eye problem I encounter when using my Renova. In fact, it was so unpleasant that I have discontinued using it. I would wake up every morning with eyes that look like the devil. As a result, the puffiness […]
