There are literally hundreds of exhibits at the International Beauty Show, so when I saw that one small booth was always three deep with visitors, I had to check it out.

This Memorial Day, Cindy of Prime Beauty is hosting Fashion Flash. Give me a roomful of skin care products and thrity minutes and I can pick the one perfect forumula that I need. But when I face a counter of make-up, I freeze. I can’t decide on cream or powder blush, neutral or smoky eyeshadow and lenghtening vs volumizing mascara– and don’t even ask me how many liners I buy and abandon. That is why I am so glad that I subscribed to Prime Beauty. She has a passion for finding the perfect make-up for every skin type for every occasion. Cindy does the heavy lifting and tried out the new lines of lipsticks and foundation so that I don’t waste my time and money.
Question: I used to have facials several times a year. Now that I am using Retin A, can I continue my favorite indulgence?
Answer: I love facials and I love Retin A, but together they may pose problems. If you are using Retin A, you need to weigh three issues:
1.How long you have been on Retin A ?
2. How is your skin reacting to Retin A?
3. What kind of facial do you want to use?
If you have just started on Retin A ( less than three months), the short answer is no. Retin A is irritating on purpose and adding a facial early in the process can be asking for trouble. Your skin could easily react with redness and peeling that would require stopping Retin A for at least a month.
When I started my Invisalign program, I had been told by other dentists that either Invisalign would not work or I would need two years of metal braces that would cost more than $10,000. Not good news. When I did finally find the wonderful Dr Jacquie who is one of the top Invisalign practitioners, I would have been happy with just a visible improvement. But I started to see results so fast and the benefits just kept coming, that I wanted more than better– I wanted gorgeous.
