Q: Ask Cheryl | Does Drinking More Water Your Hydrate Skin?

Posted on Dec 12, 2018 12:02:03 PM

A: Well, not really. Drinking enough water is obviously important to health, but water first replenishes your internal organ; the skin is the most superficial organ and the last to feel the benefit.

Some people have a dry skin “type,” and others have skin that is dehydrated and just feels dry, which is a skin “condition.” Skin with a stripped acid mantle and a lack of water is dehydrated and drinking more water won’t fix it.

Ask Cheryl | Brown Spots on Cheek, Forehead

Posted on Nov 23, 2018 12:24:06 PM

Q. I have a brown age spot on my cheek and two smaller ones on my forehead that I didn’t use to have. They make me look old, how do I safely get rid of them?

A. Brown spots are a result of cumulative sun exposure. They develop deep in the skin over the years and then pop out as we age. These brown sunspots, age spots, and freckles develop on the parts of our body that are prone to sun exposure. Luckily these unsightly spots can be lightened or eliminated with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments.

A: Facial filler is a term that used for various types of products that are injected into the face to remove wrinkles and/or add volume.

Posted on Jun 13, 2018 3:41:21 PM

A: Cellulite is normal fat which causes a 'crater' effect because it is trapped beneath the surface of the skin. This trapped fat pushes against the connective tissue, septa, causing the skin above it to pucker. Cellulite is more common in women and is commonly found on the thighs and buttocks, but can appear anywhere.
