The Doctors: GMCollin Anti-Aging Skin Care Set
Dr. Rachael Ross shared that the average woman will spend over $30,000 on her face in her whole lifetime. For women out there, there is one thing that you should never be putting on your face, and that one thing is hairspray.
Dr. Ross explained that there are tips online from certain beauty experts saying that women should use a little bit of hairspray to set their makeup. Dr. Drew Ordon said that’s a bad idea and you shouldn’t do it because there are things in hairspray such as lacquers and alcohol that can really dry out your skin. Hairspray can take the volume out of your skin and volume is good because that’s what keeps us looking youthful. Hairspray can also clog your pores.
So how about something that women should put on their faces? Dr. Ross had an anti-aging skin care set from GMCollin. The set includes a stem cell cream and anti-aging patches. The entire set was worth about $280. Dr. Ross said if you use the products in the set, your face will feel fresh. Fresh was the word of the day! Everyone in the audience went home with the skin care set.
