How We Decided to Make Masks

During the COVID-19 pandemic, team members from the Dermatology Center for Skin Health, PLLC, as well as friends and family, wanted to find a way to help its community. We identified a need for personal protective equipment to front-line providers. A friend, Mary Jo Hull, said it is possible to make masks out of air filters that help to block and capture viruses. 

Dr. Michele Maouad said that the team could make masks from cloth with pockets and stuff them with the air filters! Dr. Rola Gharib saw the need, got the supplies together and organized the crew to make it happen fast! Kim Drvar designed the masks! Rhonda Assmus patiently taught us, rookies, how to sew!

A whole team, including Dr. Maouad’s daughters, worked together to produce the final product! The craftsmanship is by no means perfect, given the rookies on the team; however, the mask is functional!

Learn how our team was able to make masks below.

Which Antioxidant Is Best For Your Skin Care Regimen?

[fa icon='calendar'] Feb 5, 2020 2:29:23 PM / by Dermatology Center for Skin Health, PLLC posted in skin care, skin health, Antioxidants

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

It is difficult to navigate the beauty aisle with confidence. With as many different skincare products on the market, you are probably wondering, “What ingredients should I be looking for?

In this article, we are going to address one of several ingredients to look for in your skincare regimen-antioxidants. Topical antioxidants are essential for your skin.

The formation of free radicals is widely accepted by scientists as a mechanism leading to aging skin. Free radicals, which are formed from the sun, pollution, stress and smoking, damage the DNA of the cell, which can lead to premature aging and skin cancer.

In addition, the production of free radicals increases with age, while our defense mechanisms that counter them decrease. This imbalance leads to the progressive damage of cellular structures, and thus, results in accelerated aging and possible skin cancer. Topical antioxidants are available in multivariate combinations through over-the-counter skincare products that are aimed at preventing the clinical signs of photoaging. Not all antioxidants are created equal.

Our dermatologists have put their heads together to develop this list on how to choose the best antioxidant for you! Continue reading below, and let us know if you have any questions.
