10 Things Dermatologists Are Dying to Tell You About Your Skin

January 18, 2017

Dendy Engelman, M.D., clinical assistant professor of dermatology‌, discusses the usage of magnifying mirrors and skin care in Marie Claire's "10 Things Dermatologists Are Dying To Tell You About Your Skin." “Those 20x magnifying makeup mirrors just kill me. All you can see in them are flaws! Nobody should look at you that closely except dermatologists, since that’s our job. To the untrained eye, seeing your skin magnified that much encourages picking at otherwise imperceptible blemishes. Plus, it contributes to a poor sense of self because it literally magnifies your imperfections. My mother is in love with them; her excuse is ‘I can’t see to put my makeup on.’ She won’t listen to me! I tell everyone I know that if they really can’t apply makeup without glasses, find a mirror with magnification of just 5x to 8x that only corrects for nearsightedness," said Dr. Engelman.

Haggerty: Marisa's Memory Fuels Race, Cancer Research

January 18, 2017

Almost every cent will go directly toward the pediatric cancer fight and toward making the lives of ill kids and their families better. A central figure in the research is Marisa Fund board member, Dr. Mitchell Cairo, professor of pediatrics, medicine, pathology, microbiology and immunology, and cell biology and anatomy at New York Medical College, said “Without it, many lives might not have been saved.” Cairo said new medications “unleash the brake on immune cells” that fight the disease. New immune-based therapies also provide a targeted approach to attacking Hodgkin‘s cells. And cells are being genetically engineered to attack Hodgkin’s cells.

January 09, 2017

Doing breathing exercises is an expert-recommended natural remedy for anxiety that has been proven to work.
