Here is a great episode from Dr. Schultz on DermTV.com today. What causes adult acne in females? Dr. Schultz explains that there has been a significant rise in adult acne in women which is terrible news for women across the board. Don’t worry though, Dr. Schultz goes on to explain that pollution, makeup that is too heavy, and stresses add to the rise in adult acne. Lesson learned, wash, exfoliate and tone.

Why would using a combination sunscreen / insect repellent be a bad idea? It seems like it would be a great idea, and I love everything 2-in-1. Dr. Schultz let me know in his tip of the week why that might not be the best idea. Since you need to constantly reapply your sunscreen, you end up reapplying a large quantity of insect repellent. Which will keep the bugs at bay, however the harsh chemicals are not good for us especially when used in large doses. Check out www.DermTV.com to see an episode on whether or not pores open and close.

Dr. Schultz’s tip of the week from DermTV.com is something that never crossed my mind. What does a UV Index mean? Along with your daily forecast (rainy, sunny, hot, cold) there is also a UV Index which tells you how strong the harmful rays of the sun will be. This number is on a scale of 1 to 11, the higher the number the stronger and more dangerous the rays are. Just another reason to make sure you apply sunscreen everyday!

Dr. Schultz’s tip and episode for the week of July 4th. The tip is great and something Dr. Schultz commonly recommends to his patients: choose the sunscreen that you like the most in the 15-30 SPF range. SPF 15 offers 88% protection from the sun's burning UVB rays; SPF 30 offers 95% protection; SPF 60 offers 99% protection; and, no sunscreen offers 100% protection. So, choose the one that you like and will remember to reapply (no need for the goopy SPF 75). Also, since everyone will be busy attending barbeques and other July 4th festivities, the www.DermTV.com episode is on how to treat insect bites. Hope you enjoy!
Dr. Schultz’s episode “Antioxidants Become a Sunscreen When Used During the Day,” shares with viewers that antioxidants actually absorb UV light when used on the skin during the day. However, when this happens, the antioxidant no longer is absorbed into the skin to perform its normal duties. This said Dr. Schultz shares 2 simple rules to follow, use sunscreen and an antioxidant in the morning but also to use an antioxidant at night as well. I never knew antioxidants absorbed UV light!

In today’s episode, Dr. Schultz points out s few very important (and a little bit shocking) statistics surrounding melanoma. Melanoma is the only preventable cancer that has seen a rise in deaths. Approximately 9,000 Americans will die this year from melanoma, which Dr. Schultz accurately describes as unnecessary. Make sure to have your annual skin cancer screening!

We are always learning new and improved techniques for treating wrinkles, but how often to we really think about what is causing them. Dr. Schultz describes the main causes of wrinkles, once again putting the science into easy to understand terms for his viewers. Please click on the following link to view this week’s episode, DERMTV.COM
How Much Sunscreen to Put On discusses the actual physical amount of sunscreen needed for full protection. This is particularly interesting because most people (myself definitely included) do not use the recommended amount. Dr. Schultz further’s his cause for sunscreen protection when he points out that the SPF of a sunscreen is decreased to its square root if not enough is put on.

With summer around the corner, Dr. Schultz has the secret to achieving a great tan at home (without the streaks!). Don’t miss his tip of the week for the details! We’ve all asked the question, does the oil in perfume cause acne? Get the answer in this DermTV.com episode, Does Perfume Cause Acne. Tune in the rest of the week for How to Treat Eczema and Does Shaving Cause Hair to Grow Thicker?.
Dr. Schultz’s Tip of the Week: How to Fix a Botched Self Tan
If you use self tanners to get your tan, I applaud your good judgement (it's the only safe tan!) But if on occasion it turns out less than perfect, don't worry; it can easily be fixed. Whether it's streaky, uneven or just too dark, daily exfoliation with a chemical exfoliant (glycolic is best) will do the trick. And if you already use a chemical exfoliant daily, then for a few days either consider using it twice a day or using a stronger strength once daily. However, don't use physical exfoliants (scrubs, microdermabraision), because they are more difficult to use evenly.
Dr. Schultz’s Tip of the Week -- Use Moisturizers with SPF in the Winter:
As you can tell, I'm a huge proponent of wearing sunscreen every day, even in the winter, and even on cloudy days. During the summer this is easy because people are used to wearing sunscreen on warm sunny days. In the winter...not so much. In order to get your winter sunscreen fix, I suggest using moisturizers with sunscreen so that they not only treat your dry skin but also protect you from the sun. And if you're wondering whether or not moisturizers with sunscreen are just as effective as sunscreen alone, the answer is yes, as long as you apply it as the first product after your cleanser and toner.

Curél has launched a new interactive, online tool, the Skin Advisor that offers skin analysis and provides advice on common skincare issues. Check out for yourself @ Curel Skin Advisor
Below you will find few quotes from Dr. Westley who partner with Curel to create this tool, along with a link to Dr. Westley unveiling the Skin Advisor. Please let me know if you will be able to post information about the Skin Advisor to your website. We could also offer a giveaway of Curel product.
- “I partnered with Curel to create the Skin Advisor, an interactive tool on curel.com designed to help users identify and address skincare concerns like dryness, itching, allergies and eczema, to name a few. 10-20% of children have eczema, and many continue to suffer in adulthood. One of the most common complaints I see in my office is dry skin, itchiness and skin prone to rashes. People don’t know what regimen is right for their skin and many times parents are also confused what they should be using for their children’s skin.”
- “I worked closely with Curel to develop a series of questions that recreate the experience of visiting the dermatologist’s office. When users answer the questions provided, the Skin Advisor generates a customized analysis of their skin concerns as well as lifestyle tips and Curel product recommendations to treat those concerns. The advisor is very detailed, asking questions about skin type and very specific questions about symptoms people experience, just like I ask my own patients. The analysis generated is also very detailed and gives very useful tips and recommendations for people to start treating their skin. There is also a helpful allergen guide that people can navigate if they suspect they may be allergic to something they are coming into contact with. It actually can help target a specific ingredient that they can look for on product labels.”
- “Once consumers complete the Skin Advisor questionnaire, they can read more about the various skin issues covered at curel.com. If users still have additional questions, they can submit those questions online and I will answer them personally and provide additional insight.”
“While serious skin conditions require a dermatologist’s attention, the Curel Skin Advisor offers an advanced skin analysis and provides valuable advice for people seeking relief from common skincare issues, putting the cure in Curel.”

At it again, Dr. Schultz has an amazing tip this week that I had to share with you. Check it out to learn why changing up your shampoo is beneficial (regardless of what the man in your life says!).

Tip of the Week -- Preventing Shampoo Fatigue:
Everyone has a favorite shampoo because of the way it leaves their hair feeling, looking, or smelling. But if you use the same shampoo every time, after a while, it just stops working. Somehow, the scalp and hair get "used" to the same shampoo and the scalp starts to itch or flake and the shampoo may leaves hair limp. And this even happens whether you shampoo every day or just once a week. It's a good thing that preventing shampoo fatigue is simple! Just use a different shampoo at least every fourth or fifth hair wash and your favorite shampoo will be as efficacious as you expect it to be!
