What’s the Skinpact? By Dr. Kathy Fields 

The quest for great skin is a journey, and while life is short and meant to be lived to the fullest, I’ve had to make changes to my lifestyle throughout the years to redefine my skin’s future. For instance, these days, I’m the first to tell you to run from the sun, but it wasn’t always that way. Growing up through long, lousy winters in Illinois, my friends and I couldn’t wait to get outside at the first sign of sun. We were desperate to get a tan, and we worked at it with baby oil, reflectors and all the tools of the trade. When I moved to Florida to attend college and medical school, I continued my sun-worshipping ways and was known for having the best tan among my classmates. Later, during my dermatology residency, I used to sneak into the psoriasis clinic after hours to work on my “base tan” by catching some rays with the UV light boxes used to treat psoriasis patients.

The Doctors Are In …

By The Book: Porexia 

Porexia: An obsession with the size of one’s pores.

“I hate my pores.” It’s a seemingly constant complaint among women over 30. In fact, a recent Harris Poll found that 45% of women wish they could change the size of their pores, and almost 30% are more concerned about their pore size than they are about wrinkles. Dermatologists have begun to use the term “porexia” to describe patients who are so fixated on their pores that they continually study them in a 10x magnified mirror. While a 10x mirror may do wonders for eyebrow-plucking accuracy, when it comes to pores, it can distort reality and not only warp the way you see yourself, but also the way you perceive the world sees you. At that magnification, even regular pores can look like blackheads.
