Laura Dern’s Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

Laura Dern has been acting since the ripe age of 15, when she landed her first acting gig in Mask. Since then, she’s gone on to star in a number of hits, including Jurassic Park, Wild, and Big Little Lies. But refreshingly, and almost shockingly, Laura has somehow managed to stay humble—even after growing up with two successful actor parents (Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern, ICYMI).

She told Into The Gloss that they showed her that being an actor was a “practical craft” and that “you worked hard and you went to work like other people went to work.” Another practical piece of advice she learned from her mom: “when we buy something, we are investing in that company and we should want it to succeed and live up to our values,” she told Shape.

Laura practices this rule in all aspects of her life,

The First Known Case Of A Skin-Less Shark

As if 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, what if we told you that a shark with no skin-related structured (so no epidermis, stratum laxum, dermal denticles, or teeth) was discovered?

Seems like something straight out of a science fiction movie. Except, it’s not.

Galeus melastomus, also known as the blackmouth catshark, is a small elasmobranch distributed in the eastern Atlantic from Norway to Senegal on the outer continental shelves and upper slopes. Here, they mainly feed on invertebrates, cephalopods, small pelagic bony fish, and other small elasmobranchs. This shark is caught in fisheries within their range and have very low or no commercial value. Back in July 2019, one individual stood out and became a scientific megastar. The specimen was caught by trawl in central‐western Mediterranean waters in

How microaggressions in health care hurt minorities

Far too often, when Sarah Perren went to a Philadelphia hospital for her regular diabetes care, her doctor gave her dietary recommendations that she never could have afforded. Just stepping into the office made the 59-year-old Black woman feel tense and self-conscious; she sensed that the doctor thought she was just lazy for not following his diet.

One time, another doctor at the clinic literally jumped back when she took off Perren’s socks and saw her dry skin—a frequent consequence of diabetes. The doctor announced that she didn’t want any skin flakes to get onto her clothes.

“I felt it was racial,” the West Philadelphia resident recalled. “You just have a feeling the way they talk to you. That’s when I told myself my health is more important somewhere else.”

She has since established care with another hospital, but still feels the toll of what experts

What top derms want you to know about menopause and skin

Menopause comes with liberating upsides (no more monthly periods) and well-documented downsides (hot flashes and fatigue), but few women are prepared for the ways this natural stage of life impacts their skin. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists defines menopause as the twelve months after ovaries stop producing estrogen (the hormone that helps regulate the menstrual cycle). It can be a problematic time for your skin because estrogen is manna for your complexion: When levels of the hormone decrease, issues like dullness, dryness, and increased sensitivity to damaging UV rays can arise. “As women lose estrogen, their collagen production also decreases,” says dermatologist Howard Murad, MD, founder of the eponymous skincare line, Murad. That means skin can get thinner and start to sag, too.

Although menopause begins, on average, at the age of 51, many of these issues can start even earlier. “As you age, the skin naturally becomes

Catherine Zeta-Jones, 50, Says *This* Is The Best Skin Advice

Catherine Zeta-Jones is 50 and yet somehow she doesn’t seem to have changed a bit since her breakout role as Elena in The Mask of Zorro back in 1998. Yes, it’s been 22 years since her debut in Zorro. After that sinks in, you’re next thought will probably be how does she look so good?

Catherine Zeta-Jones is 50 and yet somehow she doesn’t seem to have aged since her breakout role as Elena in The Mask of Zorro back in 1998. Here’s what she does.

It’s likely that some of it (okay, probably a lot of it) has to do with good genes, but the actress also credits Elizabeth Arden of which she’s been a model and spokesperson of for years. Her product of choice is their Eight Hour Cream (more on that later). But back to the genes point—Catherine also credits her mom for teaching

NADIA Skin Announces Anti-Aging Breakthrough in Skincare

NADIA Skin Announces Anti-Aging Breakthrough in Skincare

New Orleans, LA, August 28, 2020 –(– A breakthrough treatment in holistic health, integrative medicine and detoxification is now making its way into high-end skincare. Avior Nutritionals has announced the launch of a skincare line specializing in an ingredient previously reserved for clinical settings – NAD+.

NAD+ is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It is responsible for cellular energy, mitochondrial functioning, and DNA repair. Our bodies make NAD+ naturally, but less and less of it as we age. How much less? By age 50, our NAD+ levels are typically half of what they were at age 20. Diminished levels of NAD+ are associated with visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

Avior Nutritionals is the manufacturer of REAL NAD+, a product available only through physicians. After years of case studies where practitioners reported that utilization of NAD+ coincided with improvements in overall health,

Health Beat: Life-changer for Down syndrome: Going beyond skin deep | Health Beat

DENVER – Sam Levin’s energy is infectious. From breakdancing to podcasting to wrestling, Levin is unstoppable.

“I am a top wrestler, and everyone calls me the beast because I am the beast,” said Levin, a Global Down Syndrome Foundation ambassador.

But four years ago, at just 13 years old, Levin was losing his hair.

“Kids were teasing him about it,” shared Levin’s father, Brian Levin.

They tried medications and injections. He has a condition called alopecia areata, where his immune system attacked his hair follicles.

Joaquin Espinosa’s team at the Linda Crnic Institute for Down Syndrome has found which part of the immune system is hyperactive and responsible for several painful skin conditions associated with Down syndrome.

“It’s called the interferon response,” explained Espinosa, the institute’s executive director. “It is the aspect of the immune system that we use to fight off viruses, but we use it only when there
