The 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge that I announced back in April is fully underway. Last week I had my first consultation with Dr. Deborah Sarnoff, a NYC dermatologist. After discussing my skin issues, she recommended the following Eucerin products for me:
I’ll be starting my personal skincare regimen next week, which will continue throughout the year – all while tracking and sharing my progress with you. And because a journey is so much more fun with company, I’ll also be dropping some serious skincare knowledge on you and hosting fabulous giveaways.
You can get in on the action too. Visit the “Digital Derm” tab on the Eucerin Facebook page! This tab offers you the chance to ask one of Eucerin’s Skin First Council dermatologists a question about their skincare and find a local dermatologist near your home. And if you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow @EucerinUS.
So stay tuned, my pretty peeps.

A recent conversation about the importance of sun protection with my coworker got me thinking about my favorite products. First I should say that I am an American Cancer Society alum. Working there gave me a generally heightened awareness of the importance of sunscreen. However, it was my father in law’s skin cancer diagnosis last summer that really made me a passionate advocate for taking care of your body’s armor. (more…)
Since I became pregnant with my son, Westley, my body and skin dramatically changed. Much of the physical transformation was expected, but I was surprised and amazed by how pregnancy and motherhood changed me at the cellular level. And ever since then, I’ve been trying to figure my new self out.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to see a dermatologist (I haven’t been in years). But I’ve been so busy and pressed for time that it keeps falling to the bottom of my OneNote to-do list. Luckily, fate intervened and I was asked to participate in the 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge! (more…)
Hyperpigmentation is the beauty bane of my existence. Every time I get a pimple, it leaves a dark mark in its wake – whether or not I pick at it. Luckily, I don’t get too many blemishes or else Cruella de Ville might want to make a coat out of me. But even one dark mark is a cause for concern and embarrassment – not to mention they can take months to lighten up.
One mark has taken up residence on my jawline for the past six months. It’s been there for so long, sometimes I just forget about it. That is until I see a photo of myself and cringe at how dark and mole-like it appears. So when a bottle of Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution showed up on my doorstep to review, I was very hopeful. Kiehl’s is one of my favorite skincare brands and their products have yet to disappoint, so I was very hopeful about this new innovation. (more…)
Bethenny Frankel is my CBFFIMH (Celebrity Best Friend Forever in My Head) – along with Kathy Griffin and Wendy Williams.
Bethenny and I were introduced back in March of 2008 when The Real Housewives of New York premiered. She quickly won me over with her unpretentious personality and quick wit, and we’ve been BFF’s (again, in my head) ever since. Bethenny and I even had our children around the same time (Bethenny gave birth to Bryn in May of 2010 and Westley arrived in August of that year). I remember even more of a kinship with Bethenny as I watched her juggle marriage and motherhood, on the first season of Bethenny Getting Married?
Now I learn that me and my gal pal have even more in common. The reality-star-turned-entrepreneur has ventured into beauty, launching her Skinnygirl Face and Body collection. (more…)
