BB Creams are the newest miracle product to hit the beauty scene. First appearing in the Western beauty market only a short year ago, many traditional beauty Bombshells are still trying to understand why they’ve caused such a commotion. Let’s talk about the ABCs of BB creams and find out what they can do for you and your beauty routine.

Germs are everywhere, but sometimes we don’t consider the fact that germs and bacteria actually live on our skin. We’re all aware that we need to wash our hands frequently, follow basic food safety practices and avoid touching people and objects that we know are infected with our bare hands. We tend to think of bacteria as germs that cause illnesses; however, new studies suggest that a healthy amount of normal bacteria can help prevent diseases. When it comes to our skin, though, we often associate bacteria with breakouts, clogged pores and congested skin.
We’ve all been told a thing or two that we think is fact but in reality it is a rumor, a myth, a big fat lie. It happens. Your girlfriend hears it from her sister, who was told by a friend who saw it on TV, and it usually goes a little something like this: “So I just heard, you don’t have to wear sunscreen every day!” Yikes. Bad information can take you down a path you don’t want to go down, from bad food recommendations to an hour wasted watching some show your friend recommended. Sometimes fact and fiction just need to be separated.
OK, you and I may not want to admit it, but fall is upon us. Even though we aren’t brandishing our bare skin in this cooler weather, we can keep our sexy summer skin – even under our sweaters. With my patented (no, not really) three-step routine of “polish-primp-pamper” you will have healthy, glowing, supple skin all season long.
Q. My skin is super sensitive. Which ingredients should I be sure to avoid?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
Redness, stinging, burning, itching—not ways we want to describe our skin, but for many people skin sensitivities can be a daily struggle. Dermatologists classify sensitive skin as skin that has pustules, bumps or skin erosion, and it can be very dry, not properly protecting nerve endings within the skin. Genetic factors such as age, gender and race play a role in causing skin reactions, and therefore sensitivities can vary from person to person. Sensitive skin types can also have a tendency toward blushing for various reasons.
Is it just me, or is the color orange flooding the atmosphere a little early this year? Not that I’m complaining. I’ll pin pumpkin recipes and share cute costume pics all September long—then get crafty (or at least imagine I will) come October. But when it comes to my beauty routine, autumn’s early invasion goes beyond the usual social pinning, liking and…dreaming.
Q. I am in my mid-thirties and my skin is still breaking out! What do you recommend?
Dr. Linda Miles D. O. M. responds:
A. More and more, adults in their 30s, 40s and 50s are suffering from breakouts. Don’t worry. With some key lifestyle adjustments and effective topical blends, a holistic approach can help you achieve clearer, healthier, more balanced skin faster than you think.
