SmScan 240ooth skin deserves to be seen all summer long! Transform dry, rough skin in just 3 easy steps thanks to these skincare essentials – you’ll be showing off a beautiful, glowing you this season with skin that’s soft to the touch from head to toe!


Step 1 – For your face, gently exfoliate combination skin with Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub. This ingenious concentrated powder cleanser is specially formulated to foam up on contact with water, leaving skin 2.5 times as clean as a basic cleanser. The formula gently exfoliates while forming tiny bubbles that dive deep into pores to break up oil and impurities. When you rinse the foam away, oil, debris and dead cells are swept away, for instantly smoother, softer texture and visibly tighter pores after just one use! ($9.99; Drug and Mass Retailers)


Step 2 – For your body, moisturize all over with Curél Rough Skin Rescue which works with your skin’s natural exfoliating process to uncover healthy, smooth skin. Ideal for severely dry, flaky skin, this smoothing lotion gently loosens flakes without irritation, allowing essential hydration to reach the areas that need it most. The dermatologistrecommended formula uses natural ingredients to relieve roughness and help prevent it from returning. ($7.99, Drugstores and Mass Retailers)


Step 3 – For your feet, slip dry, cracked heels into PediSpa by Look Beauty Gentle Exfoliating Foot Mask! PediSpa is your non-traditional masque that contains a foot exfoliate plus treatment filled in a pair of wearable socks. Found in the Pharmacy Foot Care Aisle, the effective treatment contains key ingredients like chamomile and natural botanical fruit extracts to help control callus build-up for visibly smooth feet within two weeks.

Liv Ballard Collection – Vampire Inspired Pendants

Fine jewelry designer Liv Ballard, and one of the newest additions to her collection, the Scaccia Diavolo, which translates to “chase away the devil.”  Inspired by the culture and mythology of vampires and seeking to create a modern piece that is both empowering and protective, Liv created a bracelet of charms that is offered as a complete piece, as well as individual charms that can be used as pendants.
Just in time for the Halloween season, the Scaccia Diavolo is an 18 karat yellow gold statement piece that features detachable yellow gold, ebony, diamond, and ruby charms, all handmade in Rome. The mirror, embellished with rubies and diamonds, the sun with its distinctive flames, the pointed ebony stake blood stained with rubies, a solid gold clove of garlic, and a cross pavéd in diamonds – all powerful icons that ward off vampires and hold unique meanings. Each pendant brings light to its wearer while empowering and protecting against disruptive energies, making it a fierce and powerful accessory as a bracelet or as individual pendant necklaces.
The Liv Ballard collection is sold exclusively at Saks, with celebrity fans including Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Danielle Brooks, and Alicia Witt.

Dermatoporosis: Will Your Skin Survive the Passing of the Years?

Everyone knows that as we get age we are at risk of developing a condition called osteoporosis that causes our bones to get brittle and break. However, not many know that your skin may suffer from a similar problem: dermatoporosis.  Dermatologists are calling this condition a real problem.


It may sound scary, and it is, but the good news is that there is a lot you can do to help your skin transition from one decade to another and the sooner you begin, the better your skin will fare. It is characterized by many features.  If you haven’t been executing a skin care regimen that helps to build a strong barrier function, there is no time like the present to start.  This is because of many of the later- in-life problems actually begin in your 30’s and 40’s.  There is a very gradual thinning of the skin and as this process progresses, skin becomes more fragile and vulnerable to insults that might not have bothered it earlier.

Bruising becomes a bigger issue as skin becomes thinner.  While there are other factors that contribute to easy bruisings such as sun damage and medications that thin the blood, building a stronger barrier can help.  The use of bruise products such as DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula may help thinning or fragile skin withstand daily bumps and bruises.


DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula

 A dermatologist-recommended cream that is clinically proven to help improve the appearance of bruised skin. The formula’s targeted ingredients such as ceramides, Retinol, Arnica Oil and Glycolic Acid, work together to rejuvenate and help restore the skin’s natural barrier. So, if you’re in your 30’s and already puzzled by black and blues that seem to come out of nowhere, you need to prepare for the future.

No one has the same skin.  Some genetic factors may make your skin more thin and vulnerable. For those of us who love the Vitamin D in the summer, your skin may also be more prone to developing signs of dermatoporosis.

So, what’s the takeaway?  Start building your skin barrier as early as you can and make it a priority. As people with the early signs of osteoporosis know, early intervention is crucial. Speak with a dermatologist to learn how to get your skin on the right track because tomorrow is always right around the corner……and you don’t want to “bump” into it.

DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula ($29.99) is available at CVS, Walgreens and WalMart stores or online at For optimum results, apply twice daily to areas prone to bruising.
