In today's digital age, where information is just a click away, it's all too easy to get swept up in the whirlwind of tips, tricks, and trends. But here's the catch – not all skincare advice is created equal. 
    A few weeks back, I took a deep dive into some common skincare myths that many of us have fallen for. But guess what? There's still plenty more to explore! So, this week, I'm back on the podcast with more skincare myths to debunk and truths to uncover.

    In today's constantly growing beauty and skincare world, there's no shortage of myths and misunderstandings about how to care for our skin! Skincare myths often sneak into our routines, passed down through generations, shared among friends, or promoted on social media. Sorting through all this information can be tricky and sometimes even risky. However, it's important to separate fact from fiction if we want to achieve the healthy, radiant skin we desire. This week on the podcast, I'm busting the most common skincare myths. Join me as I debunk these misconceptions and provide clarity on skincare.Takeaways:- Natural products are not always better; there are harmful substances in nature as well.- Skincare is not a quick fix and requires patience and consistency.- Sunscreen does not cause cancer; it actually prevents it.- Skincare does not have to be complicated or expensive; focus on quality ingredients - and find products that work for you.- Celebrity endorsements do not guarantee skincare expertise; trust dermatologists for reliable advice.

    Shades of Skin: Exploring Truths & Myths in Skin of Color

    Shades of Skin: Exploring Truths & Myths in Skin of Color

    Did you know that in the U.S., over 40% of people identify as 'skin of color' (SOC)? And by 2050, that number is projected to be over 50% of the U.S. population! For a really long time (think hundreds of years), medical research and studies focused on more western European or Caucasian skin. This led to confusion and delayed diagnoses for many individuals with more melanin in their skin. Fortunately, things are changing and evolving to keep up with our current population... finally! But there are lots of misconceptions out there about treatments that are safe, and unsafe for SOC. 
    This week on the podcast, I discuss skincare and procedures in SOC with my colleague, Dr. Tia Paul, who sheds her insight and expertise as a dermatologist well-versed in treating a diverse range of skin types!
