How To Know If Your Mole Is Safe Or Something To Have Checked Out Almost everyone in the world has at least a few moles on their body. In fact, by the time most people reach adulthood, they generally have between 10 and 40 moles spread across their skin. Most of these moles aren’t present at birth but develop throughout adolescence.

7 Reasons Why Moisturizing Should Be A Daily Part Of Your Regimen

7 Reasons Why Moisturizing Should Be A Daily Part Of Your Regimen Moisturizing is a crucial step to maintaining your skin’s health and vibrancy.

Acne: Understanding its Causes and Treating its Effects

Acne: Understanding its Causes and Treating its Effects Acne is unpleasant, unpredictable, and can feel unavoidable. In fact, at some point on our journey from adolescence to adulthood, the majority of people will experience some form of acne. For most, signs and outbreaks of acne occur during adolescence and clear up over time. Hormones are one of the primary driving factors behind the unpleasant lesions. Thus, as you age and they stabilize, so too does the oil and chemical balance in your skin. For many people, prominent signs of acne persist into adulthood and can severely impact social interactions and diminish overall quality of life.
