A fun story!

I just want to share a story from one of our patients.

One of our patients, who originally was from eastern europe, goes back every summer to her home country.   Manners being much better there (why is that?), the young people routinely give up their seats when an older woman  (she’s in her late 60s) boards the metro or bus.

Two summers ago, when she would board, the young people would stand up almost every time and offer their seats.  Over the past year, she’s lost some weight, toned up with exercise and done some non surgical work on her skin.   She looks vigorous and great.   This summer, the whole visit only 2 young people stood up for her.   She was happy!

I asked her, “Could it have just been that their manners have really deteriorated over the past year?”    She replied,  “No, because they were still getting up for the other older women – they just thought I was much younger!”

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
