After watching the Oscars last night, it may seem like celebrity skin is the epitome of perfection, but don’t be fooled, they struggle with the same issues that everyone else does. Whether it’s acne or wrinkles, they are always looking for the latest trends or products to keep their skin looking fantastic.
Actress Jennifer Garner is no different. Her secret to keeping her blemishes at bay is the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System. It improves skin tone, reduces the appearance of pore size, and helps other skin care products work that much better. The Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System utilizes a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften, and smooth the skin. In just a minute, it removes six times more makeup and twice as much dirt and oil than cleansing with just your hands.
Jennifer has reaped the benefits from using Clarisonic, you should too! Call our office today to get yours!
Did you know that melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer? Although it is less common than other forms of skin cancer it can spread quickly and develop anywhere on the skin. The disease is caused from overexposure to sun or ultraviolet radiation, especially within people that have fair skin.
There are five major signs/symptoms to look for when determining if you may have some form of Melanoma. These are known as the ABCDE’s of Melanoma and they include:
A-Asymmetry: Early forms of melanoma are asymmetrical, meaning that you cannot draw a line down the middle and have equal parts on each side.
B-Borders: Uneven borders with irregularities or blurs.
C-Color: Varying shades of brown, blue or black.
D-Diameter (size): Melanoma tend to be larger than normal moles, ones the size of a pencil eraser are something that you should look at closely.
E-Evolving: Any changes in the size, shape, color, or feel.
If you are unsure if any of these signs pertain to you or notice that some might, do not hesitate to set up an appointment immediately at the Neiman Dermatology Building.

Coconut oil is as unique a food as it is beautifying to our health. The saturated fatty acids or saturated fats, in coconut oil were for a long time thought to contribute to heart disease and fat deposits in our arteries. Recent studies have proven this to be untrue. Studies have shown that total and LDL (bad cholesterol) levels of cholesterol are actually reduced while the levels of HDL (good cholesterol) are increased resulting in a lower risk for heart disease.
Other important health benefits we get from the saturated fatty acids in coconuts (accounting for 90% of the total fatty acids) are weight-loss and curative properties for certain brain disorders. The fats in coconut oil are special because they are MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) so they require more energy to burn in our body than the longer fat chains. Some of this metabolic enhancement is also utilized when some of the fat is sent directly to the liver from the digestive tract for immediate energy use. There it may be converted to a ketone which helps in reducing the risk for epilepsy (seizures) and alzheimers.
It is a natural appetite suppressant which is wonderful for keeping your heart healthy and your skin looking younger longer.
One of the most interesting medicinal uses for coconut oil is that it helps kill off pathogens such as fungi, viruses and bacteria. The lauric acid (contained in 50% of fatty acids) in coconut oil turns into monolaurin (a monoglyceride); both help in killing the previously mentioned pathogens and keep our bodies away from harmful organisms.
For the hair and skin, topical application of coconut oil is great for refining our appearance. Not only is coconut oil a natural sunscreen, blocking about 20% of UV rays. It also helps the skin retain moisture and lipids. When applied to the hair, the oil protects hair from damage by strengthening it; maybe even protected it from falling out.
