Yahoo Beauty: A Plant-Based Diet Will Solve 90% of Your Skin Problems –
Each day we face choices that affect our health on countless levels; “Should I eat that gluten filled cookie, use that toxic, yet extremely effective pesticide in my garden, or pay double for that organic moisturizer that works almost as good as the one laden with chemicals?”
In the summer, when your pores seem to be holding onto excess sebum the way “Hoarders” subjects cling to newspapers, keeping blackheads at bay is its own special project. We caught up with cosmetic dermatologist and founder of 5th Avenue Dermatology Surgery and Laser Center Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank to find out just how often we should exfoliate, which ingredients to use and avoid, and which in-office treatments will keep our pores tiny and clear.
When it comes to our faces, we don’t rely on just anyone to tell us what our skin needs to get that ever-elusive glow. Instead, we turn to skin-care veteran (and celebrity fave!) Renée Rouleau, who knows it takes more than the right products to get radiant. Each week, she’ll be serving up her expert tips to keep your complexion in tip-top shape.
