    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    As I always tell my patients, there is no need to spend a great deal of time or money on your skin — a simple regimen of a mineral based sunscreen in the morning, and alternating a retinoid with an anti-oxidant (such as Vitamin C) in the evening — will leave your skin healthy, smooth, and glowing!


    I must confess though ... a light brightening peel with glycolic and azelaic acid does help perk up my skin when I have been getting up too many times at night with my kids
