Air pollution can come in many different forms - from acid rain to car exhaust to cigarette smoke. These substances are not only bad for the environment - they are also bad for your skin! There is significant evidence showing that this kind of pollution causes the body to produce free radicals - which break down collagen and elastin in the skin cells. The result is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles and an overall quickening of the aging process. You can not always protect yourself from these dangers but below are some ways you can help combat them!

Ask any esthetician, dermatologist or skincare expert the necessary steps to healthy skin and a good nights sleep will most certainly be a constant on that list. It is not a secret that lack of sleep shows itself in our skin; a dull complexion, dark undereye circles and blotchiness are all side affects. However, for those with a busy schedule, accomplishing the recommended eight hours of sleep can sometimes feel like a dream! So to help you ease into sleep after a stressful day, here are a few natural sleep inducers:
Melatonin: This is a naturally occurring hormone secreted by the pineal gland that usually increases at night to make you feel sleepy but can be affected by stress, jet lag, and even age. Taking a supplement of melatonin will raise the level in your body and help to relax you.
Tryptophan: You have probably heard about this amino acid around the Thanksgiving table as there are high levels in turkey but it also the reason behind the age old glass of milk before bedtime. The reason for this is that tryptophan is responsible for the production of melatonin. Therefore an increase in tryptophan will quicken this production along with your accent into sleep.
Valerian Root: A flowering plant native to parts of Europe and Asia, this herb can be found at a vitamin store in pill form. It is a mild sedative and releases a calming feeling that can relinquishes you of the anxiety of the day and deliver a more peaceful nights sleep.

Dr. Laszlo was dedicated to formulating the best acne treatment for his patients and understood the frustration and shame that can accompany problem skin. The line includes everything you need from acne cleansers to spot treatments and blemish reducing masks. However, while treatment is essential, it is also important to understand why these breakouts might occur and trust us they are not always obvious. The following are some silent skin killers you might not even realize are contributing to your breakouts.
Something to Talk About
Whether it is a job or a talkative family member that keeps you on the phone, that constant mouthpiece contact can cause breakouts around the mouth and chin line. Being conscious of holding the phone away from your face as well cleaning that area with antibacterial wipes can help to keep those breakouts at bay.
When you lay your head down at night, you do not want to think that your pillow is a hotbed of bacteria but in fact this can be true. Pillow cases can contain dirt and oils that may lead to clogged pores and pimples. Make a point of washing your pillowcases as often as you can to avoid this problem.
Work It Out
It is hard to think that doing something good for your body can be bad for your skin, but sometimes the two are connected. If your New Years resolution has you hitting the gym, that is great but realize that bad skin habits at the gym can lead to problems. The two biggest causes: leaving makeup on during a workout and not rinsing your skin directly after a workout. Avoiding these two no-nos should have your body and skin looking great in no time.

For most people, winter means a dry, cracked complexion. Skin dehydration is more common in the colder months because of low temperatures, harsh winds and the constant dry air of heating devices, all which suck the natural moisture from our skin. The result is most commonly itchy, sore, dry patches on your face and body. And while you might not be able to avoid skin dehydration completely, there are steps you can take to better the condition.
1. Hydrate From Within
It seems simple, but most people do not abide by the 8 glasses of water a day rule no matter how many times it is repeated. But drinking water is a great way to gradually restore moisture to your skin.
The weekly use of a gentle exfoliator can do wonders for your skin, ridding it of dead skin cells and helping to uncover a more radiant complexion.
3. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Choose a facial moisturizer that is right for your skin type and make sure to use it day and night. The best time to apply your moisturizer if after bathing, as the dermis is more able to absorb the product.
