You know you’re
In this episode with my guest from The Skin Cancer Episode, Dr. Emily Keller, we discuss:
- the hormonal causes of adult acne
- why hormonal birth control is not the course of treatment Dr. Keller recommends
- an alternative prescription treatment for adult acne — spironolactone
- why rentinoids are recommended as a topical treatment for both adult acne and general skin care for all women
I close out the show in the Odds & Ends ending with a recap of my current skincare routine, including how pleased I’ve been with the over-the-counter retinol product made by Neutrogena that Dr. Keller recommended in The Skin Cancer Episode; the new BeautyCounter Overnight Peel I’ve added after seeing how much Tina from Carrots n Cake liked it; and the tinted sunblock from La Roche Posay that I continue to enjoy.
I also discuss at the end of the show why I’m not shy about sharing that I get Botox (a fact I detailed at length in The Botox Episode) plus detail a new Botox experience I had recently after trying a new-to-me aesthetics clinic that resulted in less pain.
