Try this, nix that
As with all conditions we have an algorithm that we follow, starting from least invasive with side effects to escalation of therapy.
Did you know there are so many different treatments for sweating, ranging from topicals to orals to even procedures like Botox? I also did not mention, but a last case resort is a sympathectomy, a surgery where they remove part of the sympathetic nerve chain, a way more invasive, but also permanent result

The concept of using Botox for wrinkle prevention is explained in the video.
The idea is that if you cannot make that expression as deeply repetitively over time, then that wrinkle line will not form as deeply. Makes sense right?
I feel mixed about this because I do see plenty of young people opting to get Botox in the spirit of prevention when they do not even have any static lines to begin with!
It can be costly to maintain this over time 💸
It is a personal decision when you want to start getting Botox, and a dermatologist can help you evaluate whether or not you would be a good candidate!
Generally, I recommend starting Botox when you are starting to develop static wrinkles, which are lines that stay etched on your face, even when you’re not moving that particular muscle group

🙌🏻 DO use active ingredients that brighten and exfoliate
🙌🏻 DO use tinted sunscreen with iron oxide to block visible light from the sun, which we know ALSO worsens hyperpigmentation along with UV
🙌🏻 DO reapply spf every two hours you’re getting sun exposure
If you’ve done all that but your dark spots are still stubborn, it’s time to see a dermatologist for more treatment options including procedures such as peels and lasers!

Turns out BOTH heat and water can damage hair. Heat damages the outside of the hair, water damages the inside (cell membrane complex) - see photos from this study coming out of South Korea.
Watch the video for the SAFEST way to dry your hair!
It’s all about balancing damage from heat and water.

Have you heard of this equation before?
We learned something similar in medical school but as you can imagine it is not 100% accurate all the time
I for one am SHORTER than predicted whereas my husband is WAY TALLER than his prediction
I can only hope my son takes after his father 😄
For girls 👧🏻
Average your mom’s height with (your dad’s height minus 5 inches)
For boys 👦🏻
Average your dad’s height with (your mom’s height plus 5 inches)
I am supposed to be 5’1.5” and I think that would have been awesome 😂
My husband was supposed to be 5’7” or 5’8” but instead he’s 6’1”! 😃
How does your predicted height compare to your ACTUAL height?!

Retinoids are not always easy to start and I’ll admit that I have a like dislike relationship with them 😅 (not love-hate, because that is too strong)
I tried unsuccessfully in residency to make my skin tolerate tretinoin, and I peeled for eight weeks, to the point where my coresidents and patients started making comments about my skin’s appearance
Instead, I was able to find other retinoids and retinols that my skin could embrace and tolerate
When I make recommendations to patience for their skin care routine, I always take into consideration their skin type and what other active ingredients they have in their skin care routine
Some of my favorite retinoids/retinols include (and this is not a complete list):
⭐️ prescription tretinoin
⭐️ Adapalene otc
⭐️ @skinbetter science alpharet or alpharet intensive
⭐️ @Kiehl’s Since 1851 microdose retinol
⭐️ @Eau Thermale Avène retrinal
⭐️ @BIOSSANCE squalane retinol
What other favorite picks would you like me to share? Vitamin C, niacinamide, Azelaic acid, etc? Let me know in the comments!

Did you know there are actually correct ways to shave, to cut down on risk of ingrown hairs, cuts, and bleeding?
1️⃣ Wet your skin and hair before shaving in preparation. It’s also great to wash and exfoliate your skin beforehand, so you’re dead skin cells don’t clog up your razor.
2️⃣ absolutely use a shaving cream or gel; do not shave on bare skin, as that will irritate and chafe the skin
3️⃣ shave in the direction of hair growth to prevent ingrown hairs
4️⃣ make sure to wash your razor blade in between each stroke, so that the razor is not clogged with hair and skin cells
5️⃣ do not store your razor in your shower, or anywhere else where it can get wet and become a breeding ground for bacteria 🦠
I will admit, I do not follow all of the steps even though I know this is the proper way to shave.
That last tip in there about shaving not making your hair, grow back, darker or thicker is busting a common misconception that I see floating around on social media.
Do you practice these tips? 🪒
