Today's Takeaway with Florine Mark

May 10, 2021

With Dr. Emily Levin, Board Certified Dermatologist

Do you start your morning with a daily skincare routine? If so, are you using the same skincare products that you used 10 years ago? Many of us stick with a skincare regimen that’s easy, comfortable, and familiar without realizing that, as we age, our skin changes. As our skin changes, so do its needs. It’s not only important that we adjust our products, but also our diets and lifestyles. My guest today is board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Emily Levin. In addition to having her own practice, she’s on staff at several hospitals where she specializes in both cosmetic and surgical dermatology. Dr. Levin will tell us all about the various changes our skin goes through as we age and her best recommendations for a skincare regimen to best protect and preserve our skin at every decade. We’ll also discuss the latest safeguards and preventative measures against skin cancer.


What You’ll Hear on This Episode:


  • When did Emily decide she wanted to be a dermatologist?
  • How does our complexion change as we age?


  • Why antioxidants are so important for our skin.


  • Do collagen supplements and topical creams really work?

Today’s Takeaway:

We all want to spend more time outdoors but remember that even though sunshine feels good on our face, we can do irreversible damage if we don’t wear sunscreen. In addition to prematurely aging our skin, we might also be putting ourselves at risk of developing skin cancer. And it’s not just the sun that can cause damage to our skin. Winter weather can also worsen certain conditions like Psoriasis. So, the next time you visit your dermatologist to address skincare issues and get your annual body scan, why not come prepared with a list of questions on how to adapt your skincare routine throughout the year? Your dermatologist will have all the answers. I know mine does (Hint: it’s Dr. Emily!) Just as our bodies age, so does our skin and we need to care for it differently than we did when we were younger. That means different skincare products and regimens. It may take time to show the results, but if we follow the proper care guidelines the differences will be worth it. Remember, every day is a gift. Make the most of every day. Eat properly, exercise, and see your doctors for all of the necessary annual exams. When we care properly for our skin, we’ll not only look better but we’ll help reduce our risk of skin cancer. Be healthy, everyone. I’m Florine Mark and that’s “Today’s Takeaway.”
