I often suggest to my clients that if their dermatologist advises to watch a particular mole or if they are awaiting their appointment to get one checked, to take a picture of it on their phone or other device. That way they can keep tabs on it with the ABCDEs of skin cancer in mind. Contact your physician with any of the following: Asymmetry (one half does not match the other half), Borders (uneven edges), Color (variety of colors like brown, tan or black but even becoming red, white or blue), Diameter (grows larger than the size of a pencil eraser, but sometimes can even be smaller too when first detected), Evolving (changes in shape, color, elevation or other trait, or if starts itching, bleeding, or crusting.)SUN SAFETY-PROTECT THE SKIN YOU ARE IN SHOULD YOU INVEST IN YOUR SKIN? THE BENEFITS OF VITAMIN A by Dr. Ben Johnson - Founder & Formulator - Osmosis Skincare Ask any professional in the industry and they will tell you vitamin A is an essential part of a skincare protocol. This is true, but only for 1 type of vitamin A; stabilized retinaldehyde. There is no proven research that shows that retinol (trans or cis), retinyl palmitate, retinyl acetate or any other form actually stimulates collagen. Even retinoic acid (Retin A), which stimulates collagen can be difficult on the skin. Retinoic acid has been shown to thin the dermis by 18% after one years use. Retinaldehyde is the only research proven A that stimulates collagen and does not thin the skin! The only one! Osmosis made this powerful age-reversing ingredient liposome delivered so that we can get up to 600% more of it into the skin. Equally as important, we included additional collagen stimulators to feed the skin and maximize your collagen making potential. Our vitamin A products are not sun-sensitizing because of the technology we use. They are a must have for your clients.
