But between what we need our skin to do and how we’d like it to feel, we may be demanding too much of our largest organ without providing it with the support it needs. Sometimes our skin can’t keep up. When we grow or slim down faster than our skin, stretch marks often develop. In periods of rapid change such as pregnancy, drastic weight gain/loss, or even growth spurts in adolescence, the skin compensates as best it can. Stretch marks, though harmless, can… read more

By Dianna Mazzone May 16, 2021 OCTOBER 2019 I started noticing hair loss in my early 20s, at the front. I was constantly trying to cover it up. I can’t tell you how many times I put eye shadow on my scalp. It was scary to admit that I was losing hair.

This awkward and frustrating phase usually involves some unsettling skin changes including purging (aka more breakouts), mild dryness, and flaking. Sigh.
