It's really easy to get overwhelmed shopping for skin care. Between the bizarre-sounding ingredients, neologisms, and lofty promises that never deliver, it's hard to know what to slap on your face. Lately, though, hyaluronic acid has been the hottest skin care ingredient this side of Sephora. It's not sexy. I'’s not derived from a rare plant that only grows in the Himalayas for three weeks out of the year. It's cheap. Dermatologists love it. And darn it, it actually does things.

You probably know to have your skin checked frequently for the signs of melanoma. But you should also be looking out for another, more common type of skin cancer — squamous cell carcinoma. This potentially lethal skin cancer can show up on your skin as a white or pink bump, a non-healing sore, or even a scaly patch. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, cases of squamous cell carcinoma are on the rise, with some 700,000 new diagnoses each year.

The key to reducing the skin thickening and inflammation caused by psoriasis might be crawling under your feet.
Fire ants, which are a nuisance on a good day and a potentially dangerous swarm on a bad one, carry small amounts of venom in their bodies.
If you've ever been on the receiving end of a fire ant bite, you're familiar with its sharp sting.
Now, doctors believe this venom may be the future of treatment for the common chronic inflammatory skin condition.

Results from two international clinical trials could transform the treatment of advanced melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer type. But at present, melanoma patients whose cancer has spread face an uncertain and often bleak future.
But now, experts reporting the trial results say that the newly tested therapies should reduce the chances of the disease recurring and improve survival for many patients.
Carin Fanter tries to live the healthiest life possible, staying fit and strong.
But damage to her skin has been more difficult to manage.
"Most of my moles and freckles are on my back, so that is a real challenge and I feel helpless because I can't see what's going on back there," says Fanter.
Since her early 20's, she's had close to two dozen moles removed. Most were benign, but in early 2016 one stood out.
"I got a phone call from my dermatologist and she said this is an early melanoma and we need to get this off," says Fanter.
The number one risk factor for skin cancer is sun exposure. Spotting suspicious lesions can pose a challenge — often melanomas pop up on the back of the leg or upper back.

According the a recent study by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, more and more men are seeking cosmetic procedures. In fact, 31 percent, more than half were millennials between the ages of 25 and 34 years old; the other 34 percent were millennials between the ages of 18 and 24. "The face of plastic surgery, thanks to cultural shifts about plastic surgery and the many advances in minimally invasive technologies continues to get younger," says Dr. Fred G. Fedok, M.D. a facial plastic surgeon and president of the AAFPRS.

There is something telling about the moments when we, as a culture, all agree to make a change that feels right and good and true, then go on behaving in approximately the same way that we did before. Consider the September issue of Allure. On the cover, the 72-year-old actress Helen Mirren wears the tattooed arm of a 20-something guy slung around her neck as if it's the hot new accessory. Allure calls her "the hero we need" as the magazine enlists the beauty industry in its new pet cause: "the end of anti-aging."
It may be easier than ever to find sunscreen with all the right stuff, but be sure to read the label or you could still get burned. Most sunscreens sold at major U.S. retailers and their websites now offer broad-spectrum protection, are water-resistant and have an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 or higher as the American Academy of Dermatology recommends, a new study found.

Over the past few years, collagen-boosting products have popped up in the form of powders, supplements, lotions, serums, gummy bears and even beer.
More and more people are spending money on collagen, seeking out fillers or buying special creams in the hopes of minimizing wrinkles and achieving more supple skin. But what's actually the best way to make sure you're getting all of the added collagen you want?
To figure out the best way to boost your collagen — and which methods to avoid to save your money — HuffPost spoke with three skincare professionals. They told us what exactly collagen is, the best ways to boost collagen production and which methods to avoid.
One of the biggest misconceptions and busted myths I see in my office is that cosmetic dermatology only applies to women. This may have been true 10 years ago, but now more and more of my cosmetic patients are men.
In the last decade there's been a shift in the attitude of men seeking a younger appearance. There's a spike in interest of treatments that only women have been doing for years. More magazines and websites are educating men about "beauty," making it socially acceptable for men to be concerned about looking older.
