Skin care can seem so complicated and overwhelming. With all the products on the market each touting to have the perfect answer you are looking for to achieve beautiful skin, I often find consumers looking for simple answers and clear information. One of the most asked questions skin care experts get is what do I really need to use every day and how often. Is just washing my face enough? What is a serum and why do you need one? At Sumbody we get calls, emails and customers walking into our stores daily looking for these answers. I love to see people really care about and want to take care of their skin. They have questions and are seeking answers.

These two chemical ingredients have been used for years, but lately, dermatologists are seeing an uptick in the number of reactions related to them.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States, affecting 40–50 million Americans. Like so many, I have suffered from acneic skin for as long as I can remember. I tried everything, including chemically laden prescription medications, only to leave my skin red, dry and irritated. This past year, I finally decided to take the natural approach and get to the bottom of it. I made an appointment with Dr. Lipman, as I wanted to get off birth control without experiencing a resurgence of acne, and I also wanted to find out what else may be at the bottom of my skin condition.
How to get professional results and full-on pampering without straining your budget (recipes included!) In addition to a pampering treat, facials are the key to healthy skin. To maintain a radiant healthy glow, you should try to fit in 2 facials per month (or one a week if you can make it happen!). If you follow these simple tricks of the trade, you will be amazed with the results you can achieve at home. Plus, I know how hectic it can be to try to squeeze in time for a facial at the spa or salon—now you’ll be able to get a great facial whenever it’s convenient for you—no commitment required. And if you get in the habit of doing your own facials, you’ll get to know your skin better—what it responds to in different situations. Ultimately this will keep it healthy, youthful and glowing. Being intimate with your skin is the first step to maintaining its beauty.
