Hi there! I thought it would be a great idea to post questions every person wants to know regarding their skincare needs. What better way than to do a live Q&A session with my husband, board certified dermatologist Anthony VanVreede. Here’s a little background on him, so you know he’s a qualified doc. He was top of his class, ranking in the 100th percentile on all of his board exams. He also held the title of Chief resident dermatologist before completing his residency. He has published several peer-reviewed medical articles in highly publicized medical journals. So without further ado…Here is a list of some questions he commonly gets asked. Why not share the knowledge right? 😉 I’ll be doing a part two, stay tuned. There is also giveaway! See below for details.
What is your SPF recommendation?
A: 30 or higher
What is your advice to both women and men who want to prevent wrinkles?
A: Make sure to use a night cream that contains Retin A, don’t smoke, and wear sunscreen 30 or above.
What is retin A, for those of us who are unfamiliar?
A: It increases your skin cell turnover, stimulates cells to produce new collagen therefore less wrinkles.
Are any of my moles cancerous?
A: Do the ABCE rule = asymmetric, border, color, and diameter and if its getting larger than it’s something you should get checked out.
