The Human Barbie Doll

Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova has gained a large international following for her uncanny similarities to Barbie.  She gets positive and negative attention alike, from adoring fans to harsh critics.  It is definitely hard to ignore the “human Barbie doll” as her looks are so extreme that in many pictures, she doesn’t even look real.  Some … Read More

How to Use Tretinoin

Before entering the field of skin care, I was once told by a dermatologist that the two most important skin care products to use are sunscreen and tretinoin.  Tretinoin is the scientific name for concentrated Vitamin A.  Many physicians believe that tretinoin (as opposed to retinol, another form of Vitamin A) is possibly the strongest … Read More
