The skincare section of any store with a beauty aisle is a labyrinth of oils, creams, and potions, each claiming borderline magical properties. But how do you know if you need a toner or an antioxidant cream? The answer could depend on your birth year. We need different beauty products at different ages. Here’s a handy guide to great skin at ever age:

Age spots, freckles, liver spots – call them what you want, but when you spot them on your face, you call them "unsightly” and "unwanted,” among other things.  Then you dedicate a large portion of your life trying to get rid of these areas of hyperpigmentation.

Right now, summer is full swing, which may or may not mean you’ve already suffered your first sunburn of the season. And while turning pink from the sun can range from mildly annoying to incredibly painful, the real risk is skin cancer. In fact, Louisiana has the 47th highest incidence and 44th highest death rate of skin cancer in the U.S.

Anyone who spent their teenage years blotting their oily faces with tissue in the middle school bathroom is probably wary of using oil to clean skin, clear acne, and seal in moisture. And even those who have never battled oily skin might think it seems strange to incorporate oil into a beauty routine. After all, haven’t we been told not to touch our faces after eating so as not clog our pores with oil from our fingers?

Now on the cusp of summer, our thoughts turn to sun, fun and all that goes with it. A tan invariably completes the picture. Many of us go to tanning salons, utilizing either a tanning bed/booth or spray tan, to get that perfect, sun-kissed look in a hurry.

At this point, we’ve seen the worst of winter, and it’s time to start looking ahead to warm spring sunshine and sun-soaked summer beach days. But all that time hanging around indoors during the winter months can wreak havoc on skin. Luckily,  many skin problems can be solved with a day at the spa. Here are some tips for fresh-looking, summer-ready skin from Sasha Baldwin, esthetician at GlowDoc Med Spa.

Winter is here, and while we don’t get the extreme cold of our northern neighbors, we still have to deal with the change in temperature. And different skin types have different reactions to the weather. For example, the humidity of Southwest Louisiana in the summer is actually good for dry skin, as the dampness in the air will help your skin retain moisture. It’s not so good for oily skin, as it causes an increase in oil production from sebaceous glands.

Our faces reveal much about ourselves. Worry lines and sun damage can tell the tales. Smoothing and plumping the skin with the use of injectables has been successful for decades.  Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm are brands that have become familiar to many.

It’s important to treat your skin well all year long, but skin care experts know that treating your skin appropriately season by season is what will determine its overall health.  And by the time fall comes around, your skin is ready for a vacation from the harsh conditions of our long Southwest Louisiana summer.

Sugar can be used for more than just sweet drinks and desserts. It is a prime ingredient in many beauty products, specifically sugar scrubs. The primary function of a sugar scrub is to exfoliate skin, leaving skin smooth, glowing, and moisturized.

Full, arched eyebrows accentuate eyes and give the entire face a fresh, youthful energy. But most of us aren’t born with perfectly shaped brows; that’s why there’s an entire industry devoted to penciling and painting the eyebrows we wish we had. But if getting up every morning to draw on a set of beautiful brows isn’t your thing, microblading could be the beauty hack you’ve been looking for.

The objective of any beauty routine is to help people be their best selves, improve their appearance, and feel beautiful. Removing excess hair from one’s body can contribute to the overall look a person is trying to achieve, but it can also benefit their skin in ways they may not realize. Not only does waxing remove unwanted body hair, it can also remove dead skin cells, leaving skin more radiant. If you’re in search of a place to achieve your hair removal beauty goals, check out a new addition to Lake Charles -- Waxing the City.

Sticking your feet into a bath of fruits and roses, accompanied with jelly and whole milk may seem silly, or even odd. Not these days. Pedicures are about more than choosing a polish color. They are geared towards a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for you and your aching feet.

If you’ve perused the skincare aisle of a drugstore recently, you’ve probably noticed the classic skincare routine –soap and water with just a touch of moisturizer -- has been completely up-ended by a seemingly endless array of serums, masks, creams, and oils that can easily become completely overwhelming. The truth is, all skin needs different care, and our skincare needs change over time, so what worked at age  25 probably needs reconsidering at 35. Here are a few professional tips for taking great care of your skin at any age.

Laugh lines or crow’s feet -- regardless of what you call them, wrinkles are not something most people look forward to seeing on their face. In fact, Americans spend billions of dollars each year on cosmetic treatments to eliminate these obvious signs of aging.

It sounds pretty contradictory to put on make-up so you can look like you’re not wearing make-up. However, one of summer’s hottest trends is a fresh-scrubbed, flawless face.  And though most of us aren’t blessed with a naturally photo-ready complexion, there are plenty of inexpensive cosmetics that can help achieve a youthful, barefaced look. Here are a few essentials for achieving the perfect "no make-up” make-up.

If you’re looking for an effective treatment that will deliver long-lasting, overall improvement of your facial skin, microneedling may be what you need.

Why does it seem like boys always get the best eyelashes, and most women end up with shorter lashes that require multiple applications of mascara to even become visible? Although the universe has yet to answer this question, there is a temporary solution to stubby lashes—eyelash extensions.

One of the best parts of warmer weather is saying so long to those cumbersome coats and jackets for another year. However, over the winter, many of us have gotten a little pasty under all those layers. As we settle into our shorts and sundresses it can be tempting to go a few rounds in a tanning bed or go without sunscreen until we build up a good "base tan.”

Looking forward to long, lazy days of relaxing in the summer sun and working on your tan?

Skin care experts advise you to re-think your summer plans if you have any desire to maintain youthful, healthy skin as you grow older. Most people feel that having a suntan makes them look and feel better, but is it really worth it? Against the temporary benefits of a golden summertime glow, you have to weigh the long-term damaging effects to your skin – wrinkles, lines, rough patches, and age spots, not to mention the risk of developing skin cancer.

Feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin is one of the best things about spring and summer. However, we're all aware of the potential damage the sun can cause on unprotected skin. Women may choose makeup with a built-in sun protection factor, or SPF, thinking they are doing double duty, but is the SPF effective?

With spring break vacations and summer beach excursions approaching, people want the beginnings of a tan without the unhealthy side effects. Airbrush tanning is a safe alternative to other forms of tanning. The FDA-approved formula used is recommended by dermatologists and reacts with the skin to naturally darken it.

In the not-so-distant past, it was a soap and water world for men. Skincare products "for men only" didn't exist. If a guy needed help with a breakout or dry patch, he was on his own, or forced to borrow his wife or girlfriend's face wash or moisturizer - not that many would ever admit to doing so.
