Post-Summer Skincare – Restart with Retinoids!

Yes, being in the sun feels wonderful on my face (especially on a lawn chair with a glass of rosé in hand).  But as summer draws to a close each year, I always start to think about how to make it up to my skin (maybe I will send myself a jade roller with an apology note?) after a season of the great outdoors.

Power Up with Vitamin C!

Last winter, I was constantly getting sick from the kids – picking up their coughs and sneezes as often as I picked up their laundry.  I scheduled a visit with my doctor to do routine bloodwork and to see if there was any medication or precaution I could use to better maintain my health.  When we met for our consultation, he simply told me this – Vitamin C was my best…
