SkinBetter Clarity Regimen: Dealing with Blemish-Prone Skin

When purchasing skin care products online or at big-box stores, what do you look for? Perhaps you’re drawn in by the colorful labels. Maybe a friend recommended a popular brand. You may even shop by individual skin features or concerns, or scrutinize products by their “for oily/dry skin” disclaimers.

Current products don’t always cater to the specific needs of each individual using the serum, face wash, or exfoliant.

There are five FDA-approved botulinum toxin cosmetic injectables. Here’s how to choose the one that’s right for you. When it comes to a scraped knee, you probably reach for a Band-Aid. Sneeze attack?
