Dermatologists may need to look further than red hair and freckles when identifying patients who might be genetically predisposed to skin cancer. A University of Queensland review of the key genes affecting pigmentation could be the first step towards incorporating genomics into clinical practice to identify high-risk patients.

Researchers in dermatology at Lund University in Sweden believe they have cracked the mystery of why we are able to quickly prevent an infection from spreading uncontrollably in the body during wounding. They believe this knowledge may be of clinical significance for developing new ways to counteract bacteria.
If you have recently noticed your brows drooping, you're probably searching for ways to address it. Maybe you've considered having a brow-lift, or maybe you'd prefer something less invasive.
Over the years, many "alternatives" to brow-lift surgery have been touted. But do any of them work? To find out, Zwivel decided to go straight to the source. We asked both the current President and President Elect of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery to weigh in on a number of these so-called alternatives and clear up the confusion. Here is what they had to say.

A study of a rare genetic disease may have yielded a cure for hair graying and baldness, after researchers unintentionally discovered the mechanisms that give rise to the conditions.

In Antoine de Saint-Exupery's tender children's tale "The Little Prince," the titular young prince encounters a friendly fox who tells him, insightfully, "What is essential is invisible to the eye." Like the rest of the book, the remark is a thematic metaphor about life, love, and the absurdity of being an adult. It is not a reference to the crucial importance of the skin's invisible microbiome — the billions of unseeable microorganisms that live on its physical barrier — but it certainly could be, taken out of context. If just looking at the word microbiome makes your eyes roll into the back of your head, here's a simpler way of putting it: It's germs.
The Mediterranean diet can reduce aging of the skin, an Australian dermatologist says.
Dr. Michelle Hunt says a diet rich in antioxidants can help in limiting the number of wrinkles you get.

Everyone has had a sleepless night once in a while, and we all have gone through periods of unwelcome insomnia. But some people have far less good sleep than others. In fact, one-third of adults in the United States report inadequate sleep. It's well recognized that as we get older, our sleep patterns change. Older people sleep less, wake and go back to sleep more often, and spend less time in deep sleep or dreaming than younger people.
At the first sign of redness after being out in the sun's harmful rays, it's crucial to follow these tips that could help soothe your sunburn and help you heal faster.

If you have a sunburn, stay indoors and out of the sun as much as possible, and follow the expert tips.
