The Doctors: Stress and Skin
When you think about all the ways stress can affect your life, have you thought about how it damages your skin? Dr Andrew Ordon and dermatologist Dr Glynis Ablon explained what you can do about that.
The Drs: What Is Skin Made Of?
Dr Ablon compared skin to a mattress, which begins to sag and compress over time. Skin is made up of three primary components:
- Collagen – form, firmness & strength
- Elastins – flexibility
- Peptides – strengthens skin
Dr Andrew Ordon explained that Collagen breaks down as part of aging, leading to reduced skin volume.
The Doctors: Kiki Vandeweghe’s Wife Peggy

No. 7 Protect & Perfect Serum Review
Dr Ablon said busy women want to find products that work and don’t take a lot of time. She recommended a serum, such as Boots No. 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum.
“It’s actually clinically proven to treat deep lines and wrinkles, and improve them,” Dr Ablon said. She said it also won an Anti-Aging award from Good Housekeeping.
The Doctors: Boots Day & Night Skin Cream Reviews
Keeping your skin healthy in the long term means protecting it from the sun during the day and moisturizing it at night. The skin will naturally become drier and begin to prematurely age, but moisturizer keeps it hydrated and looking healthier and younger.
“Pro-Retinol encourages mature skin to behave more like younger skin,” Dr Ordon said. “It helps boost skin’s elasticity and gives it a more youthful look.”
Dr Ablon said these products are available in Target stores, but she also gave free products to the show’s studio audience.
The Drs: British Dog Wedding
Dogs love to be active and expressive, and they don’t take the little things for granted. A talking dog advised the team to “stop and sniff the roses.”
Dr Travis Stork wondered if it’s possible to spend too much on pets, citing a dog wedding in Great Britain that racked up a $32,000 tab.
But laughter and jokes are a great thing we can take away from pet behavior for lower stress and increased happiness.
