organicspamagazine.com – 

One of the latest beauty trends on the market is red light therapy, and I hope it sticks around forever.

Last winter I was diagnosed with dermatitis, and was also told to restrict myself to very few products on my skin (natural and traditional). Everything that my skin came in contact with, it seemed, caused a reaction.

One thing I noticed was that the warm, summer months seemed to naturally heal my skin. But once the weather got colder, my dermatitis started to flare up again.

Top New York Dermatologist Dr. Amy Wechsler on Everything You Need to Know About Cool Sculpting, a Fat Freezing Laser

wmagazine.com – 

Dr. Amy Wechsler has many titles, from ‘dermatologist’ to ‘Chanel beauty advisor’ to ‘psychiatrist’ and, of course, ‘mom.’ With Mother’s Day fast approaching, the New York City-based skincare guru (who has a long roster of celeb clientele and two teenagers) opens up about her personal beauty routine and how she keeps her skin looking flawless through stressful 10-hour workdays, the skincare challenges moms everywhere are worried about, Cool Sculpting and more.

What is the best beauty or skincare advice you learned from your mom?

One big thing is less is more. That was with everything with her life. She also spent her earlier years worshipping the sun but then did a 180 (thankfully) and is now a poster child for sun protection.

If you could spend all day at the spa for Mother’s Day, what spa would it be and what treatment would you get?
