Going to the dermatologist is fun. No, really. Recently, the New York Times highlighted a new beauty trend that’s catching fire, quickly. We like to think of them as beauty “Tupperware parties”, but instead of exchanging dishes, women are learning skincare secrets. Fun, right?

When it comes to beauty – skincare, color cosmetics – there is simply so much to learn. We’re bombarded with new products and new advice, but it’s often difficult to discern what and who we can trust.

Enter the experts –dermatologists and beauty brands themselves! Add in a party atmosphere complete with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and other ladies looking for similar tips, and you’ve got yourself an entertaining, educational night.

Patti's Picks - A Natural Way to Ageless Beauty

Pearl & Ash

I’m going to tell you a little secret: I actually don’t know that much about wine.

What I do know though (and what The New York Times seems to agree with me on) is that Nolita’s Pearl & Ash is the “city’s most exciting place to drink” it.

Ran by Chef Richard Kuo and Wine Director and Restorsea friend Patrick Cappiello, the new American restaurant combines downtown hipness with wines from every decade and country and overwhelmingly delicious entrées and desserts (I beg you to try their Fernet-Branca Ice Cream Sandwich).

It’s all you could want and more.

We’ve all heard that too much sun can cause premature wrinkles and aging. Most of us know to wear sunscreen when we’re enjoying the weather on sunny days. But what if we were to wear SPF every day all the time?

A new study of 900 people conducted exactly this experiment. Half of the participants were told to continue their usual practices and half of the participants were directed to slather on sunscreen daily.

The New York Times reports that after four and a half years, the group that wore sunscreen daily had noticeably smoother and more resilient skin than the other group. Says Dr. Gilchrest, Boston University dermatology professor, “[The research] makes it clear that extensive, consistent use of sunscreen can alter a pattern of what would be an inevitable progression of photo-aging.” He also notes, “They were not taking the worst sun offenders and taking them out of the sun. Everyone had pretty darn good sun-protection habits to begin with.” 

Definitely makes you think about adding sunscreen to your everyday morning ritual! What would we do without our Rejuvenating Day Lotion SPF 30
