@Foodifulbeauty: Skincare like the Derma's do--10 free skin care tips for women of color!

If you're like me, you've always wanted to go to a dermatologist to have your skin looked at, but it sounds just too expensive!  And, if you're like me, you assume that dermatologists have an arsenal of great skincare tips that you'd like to get your hands on.

Well, here they are.  Some tips that the pros use themselves, and (double score) they're offering them up for free!

1. Slather on that SPF.  Garland, TX-based dermatologist Lisa Garner, MD uses a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or greater sunblock and applies it to her skin generously.  It's "the best way to keep skin youthful," she says.

2. Fake a tan. Using a moisturizer that has a low level self-tanner in it can "take years off your face by evening out your skin tone," says Ranella Hirsch, MD (Cambridge, MA).

3. Eat more fat.  Essential fatty acids that is.  Doris Day, MD, a New York City-based dermatologist recommends eating foods with this type of fat, which helps to halt inflammation that can encourage fine lines, sagging, and blotchiness.  You can find essential fatty acids can be found in almonds, salmon, tuna, and halibut.

4. Find your Zen.  Stress and tension can cause hormone spikes which can lead to breakouts and aggravate skin conditions like psoriasis.  Find time in your day, or when you're feeling stressed, to snag a bit of calm.  Take a 10-minute break, try some deep breathing, or any other quick fix that reinstates a soothing frame of mind--like trying Foodiful Beauty's bath infusers (http://foodifulbeauty.com/collections/bath/products/vanilla-orange-...) , or taking a whiff of a lavender lip balm (http://foodifulbeauty.com/collections/lip-balm/products/lavender-li...).

5. Powder as protection.  Did you know that sunscreen stops working in less than three hours?  Yea, me either.  This is why Elizabeth Tanzi, MD (Wash., DC) uses powder sunscreen; she recommends Colorscience Pro Sunforgettable Powder.

6. Tweak your nighttime routine.  Sometimes we're just too tired to finish up our lovely before bed skincare routine.  If this happens to you, Francesca Fusco, MD (NYC) recommends keeping your products in a pretty case on the nightstand, then you can wrap things up while in bed.

7. Vege it up.  Skin, especially the delicate skin around your eyes, gets irritated from numerous environmental and nutritional influences.  The cold helps to reduce swelling, which is why Jeanine Downie, MD (Montclair, NJ) puts a bag of frozen peas on her face for five minutes when she gets home from work.

8. Facial Impact.  High impact activities, like running can "weaken collagen and lead to sagging," says Katie Rodan, MD (Oakland, CA).  She sticks to low impact exercises, like cycling and elliptical--at least until a 'face bra' is invented!

9. Sodium is probably not your friend.  Diet soda is your easy cheat, right? You get to enjoy the fizzy stuff without the guilt of the sugar; but did you account for the sodium that's in diet soda?  This can range from 25-50 milligrams per can, can make you puffy.  Instead, reach for sodium-free diet soda recommends Audrey Kunin, MD (Kansas City, MO).

10. Have a cup of tea.  Research suggests that green and black tea contain protective compounds like EGCG and theaflavins, which help prevent skin cancers and the breakdown of collagen--the culprit of wrinkles!

So there you have it, a list of tips that the pros use themselves to keep their skin looking great, and actually being great.  Use one use them all to give you your best skin!

[FOOD FOR THOUGHT]

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
