And what you should know, too. written by Deven Hopp updated Jul 17, 2021 Reviewed by Dr. Rachel Nazarian Board-Certified Dermatologist I grew up having nearly perfect skin. Don’t get me wrong, I got occasional pimples but they were nothing my trusty Mario Badescu Drying Lotion couldn’t handle. When I was around 20, my skin turned on me and erupted with cystic acne—I’m talking big, deep, painful, recurring cysts. As someone who has always been diligent about skincare, I freaked out, naturally. Then I called my dermatologist, who recommended I get cortisone shots for my acne.

By Dr. Corey Hartman We all want a youthful appearance  but time, sun damage, and genetics can make it difficult to maintain the sexy, rejuvenated faces of our dreams. Thankfully, an entire cosmetic industry has evolved to solve thin lips and sunken cheeks. But what about our brows? Our brows precede us everywhere we go. As the most prominent facial feature, brows often take the lion’s share of sun damage. Essentially, our brows serve as a shallow visor for our eyes (and take a beating for it). We already know all too well how UV light deepens smile and frown lines, but the skin on our brows can also slacken… read more
