The Drs: Orlando Jones At Dermatologist
For their segment called The Funny Bone, The Doctors sent comedian Orlando Jones to the dermatologist. He saw Dr Jessica Wu and shared that he sees a dermatologist every year for a full checkup since he travels so much and wears makeup. He’s 46 years old and Dr Wu said he has young skin.
Dr Wu did an examination of his skin after he removed his shirt but left his tie on. Dr Wu shared that melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is most commonly found on the hands and feet on African-Americans. A discolored spot or changing moles, as well as redness are signs of melanoma. Orlando joked that his mole actually sent him a tweet once, which was surprising because he didn’t know it even had a Twitter account.
Orlando joined The Doctors over the phone and joked he was now a Chippendale’s dancer. He said Dr Wu gave him a tip which was to use a cream that was 20% Vitamin C.
The Drs: Natural Dry Shampoo Recipe
The Doctors then shared that organic, natural skin care is a thing that even celebrities are turning to. Tata Harper, founder of Tata Harper Skincare shared that she wanted to start by talking about your hair. She said often times we reach for a dry shampoo to keep our hair looking fresh, but instead you can make an all-natural shampoo out of oats and baking soda. The baking soda gives you a deodorizing aspect. Any time you don’t want to wash your hair but want it to look clean you can use that trick.
- 1/2 cup Oats
- 1 pinch of Baking Powder
- Pulse in a food processor until it looks like a fine powder.
- You don’t want to put a lot on because it will turn your hair white, but you should apply a little bit to your roots and massage it in.
The Drs: All-Natural Facial Scrub
Next, Tata shared all-natural facial scrubs. She said they call it the “par-facial” because it’s “kind-of like having a parfait at home. The facial includes papaya and pineapple, which include natural enzymes. Yogurt has lactic acid that can clean out the pores and honey works as an antibacterial and moisturizer. You blend it all together with a little bit of sugar for a natural exfoliant. You just rub it right into your skin!
