Spring Clean and Find a Fresh Look !
Now is a great time to take inventory of your cosmetics and replenish anything that is past its prime! Over time, makeup expires which causes separation, color changes and bacterial growth. How do we know what to keep and what to pitch?
Any liquid product that’s placed on the eye or mouth areas should be replaced every three to four months. This would be mascara, liquid liner, and lip gloss. Over time they can dry out, change consistency, change scent, and develop bacteria.
Liquid foundations hold their initial consistency and color for about one year after opening. If you notice any changes, switch up a little sooner! You will know it’s time to replace this product if the scent changes or becomes stale. The same holds true for concealer. If yours has a wand tip and is used on active breakouts or around the eye area, follow the mascara rule, as those areas can harbor bacteria.
Loose and compact powders, eye shadow and blush have the longest shelf life at two years.
If it’s time to choose new makeup, let us help you with perfect shades to match your complexion and your lifestyle! We offer complimentary makeup consultations to help you find your look and enhance your natural beauty. At Musick Dermatology, we proudly offer Jane Iredale cosmetics. Her line maintains leadership 20 years and counting, in healthy cosmetics that nourish and protect the skin. The formulas are botanical, organic, and dermatologist-tested.
For a classic look, think spring flowers when choosing eye and lip colors. Pastels, soft pinks and subtle nudes flatter any skin tone and look fresh as we head into this new season. Do you have a lip color that is your signature? Try enhancing it with for spring by pairing it with one of our iridescent glosses to add more shimmer and shine! Are you feeling bold or are you wanting to try something new? We can help you polish up on ideas and techniques to experiment with trends for 2018 like the bold lip, the metallic lip, the golden-cheeked and sun kissed highlight, or the full lashes that pair with the pretty eye framing “upside down liner.”
Whether you have ten minutes or an hour to spend on your look each day, we can help you achieve what you’re most comfortable and happy with.

Product Spotlight – CE Ferulic
CE Ferulic is an award-winning antioxidant powerhouse. It is the perfect addition to any skin care regimen for the protective and corrective benefits it carries. It contains 15% vitamin C, 1% vitamin E and .5% Ferulic Acid.
What does that mean for you? Based on these ingredients, this serum improves the skin’s firmness and overall brightness while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. How? The vitamin C increases
collagen production and repairs damaged skin.
Vitamin E works to block the free radicals that age and wrinkle the skin. Combined with vitamin C, it has been proven to be more effective in preventing photo damage.
The plant-based Ferulic Acid is an antioxidant that enhances properties of other vitamins for healthy skin, reverses the signs of aging, and provides sun damage protection.
When paired with sunscreen, this powerful serum helps neutralize free radicals induced by UVA/UVB rays.
Using this product is simple: After cleansing and toning each morning, apply five to seven drops to the face, neck and decolletage. Allow the product to fully absorb before applying sunscreen.
Treatment Spotlight-Forever Clear BBL
Acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S. It affects nearly 50 million Americans. Many factors

A Recipe for Healthy Skin-Blueberry Avocado Breakfast Smoothie
This quick and easy smoothie not only tastes great but is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants necessary for beautiful skin.
Blueberries are considered a “super food” because they are rich in antioxidants. They help reverse sun damage and protect against future damage. Avocados contain high levels of healthy fats to keep skin hydrated and plump by stimulating the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin.
Bananas are full of potassium, which helps keep skin cells hydrated and healthy.
Spinach has high levels of vitamin K and folate, which help minimize acne and lessen the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
All it takes is:
- 1 avocado
- 1 banana
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cucumber
- 1 handful of spinach
- 4 oz of coconut water or milk
Blend together chilled and enjoy!
