Dermatology Appointment Check-list: Don't go to your next appointment without this

Bring this to your next Dermatology Appointment: the essentials check-list
See our Printable Dermatology Appointment Check-list below
I swear every time I go to the Dermatologist (or any doctor for that matter), I walk out remembering about 6% of what they said.

By the time I've walked to the car I find myself wondering if it would be too inappropriate to walk back in and beg for a quick re-cap?  I'm sorry, I didn't catch that...meaning all of it?

Information Overload


It only took me four decades to realize that I need to take the time to gather and write down the information I need before I go (i.e. what medications and skin care products I'm currently using, what my primary questions and concerns are, what any follow-up questions might be, and for the love of Pete, the first day of my last period so I don't have to spend 10 minutes trying to remember). 


Be Your Own Skincare Advocate


We hear all the time about how important it is for each of us to be our own healthcare advocate and that applies to our skin as well. No one knows our bodies or skin better than we do and the doctor can't know our concerns unless we tell them.

I showed up at a dermatology appointment a few years ago and pulled out a list of questions I'd scratched out on a notepad. I was somewhat apprehensive to show her how many things I had written down, but my fears were quickly squashed when she confidently responded, "Don't worry, I'm not afraid of a list."

The more prepared we are ahead of time, the more ready we'll be to listen and most importantly retain the information we're given!  By bringing this essential Dermatology Appointment Check-list with you, it will take the thinking out of it, making room in your brain for what the doctor says so it doesn't spill out onto the ground before you reach your car.  And, like my favorite Dermatologist said, "I'm not afraid of a list", and you shouldn't be either.


How to be Prepared for your next Dermatology Appointment


GATHER INFORMATION


Try to gather information at least a week in advance of your appointment so you're not stressing at the last minute. A review of this information may also help you identify your top 3 concerns.

Information gathering may include: 
1) Verifying that your doctor is covered by your insurance
2) Getting directions to the clinic
3) Date of your last period (for us girls)
4) Current medications
5) Skin care products you're currently using (I like to bring mine in a bag)
6) Changes in health or major procedures since your last visit
7) Timeline of any skin-related episodes or concerns


IDENTIFY PRIMARY CONCERNS


In my experience, most doctors want you to narrow down the reason for your visit into your top 3 so there is adequate time to discuss your concerns. Asking yourself what circumstances lead up to you making the appointment in the first place, may help you identify some of your top 3. Include additional concerns as time & circumstances allow.

Top 3 Primary Concerns

CLARIFY PRESCRIPTIONS


During your visit, write down any new prescriptions you receive and instructions on administering them. Get clarification on existing medications as needed and write it all down.

Prescriptions & Instructions
Rx1 & Instructions
Rx2 & Instructions
Fx3 & Instructions


GET SPECIFIC ON INSTRUCTIONS


Now's the time to ask clarifying questions about anything you're unsure of before your visit ends. It can be helpful to take time even before your visit to write some of your questions down and jot down new ones during your appointment. Get as detailed as necessary.

Clarification questions for the doctor might include things like:

  • Can you recommend any OTC (over-the-counter) products for my skin type/condition?
  • Can I take the medication on an empty stomach?
  • If a topical medication, how long do I have to let it set before adding another product on top?
  • Can I layer products?
  • Do I have to take it / apply it at the same time every day?
  • How long will the medication take to be effective?
  • Are there any precautions for going in the sun?
  • Can I use certain products while my skin heals (lotion, make-up, etc)?
  • Recommendation for additional appointments?

3 Surprising Benefits of using Black Washcloths

Why everyone needs black washcloths
You'd be amazed at how many people ruin their washcloths with make-up or skin care product stains. For some of us, a stained washcloth just comes with the territory. For others (like your mother's set of white washcloths?) no staining is acceptable.

If you're familiar with The Home Edit ladies, you know what I'm talking about. Clea's refined mother, Roberta, definitely does not approve of stained washcloths and if you accidentally leave a trace of mascara on her white cloths? You will definitely fail check-out and you may never be allowed back in her house again.

3 Reasons Everyone Needs a Set of our Soft Black Washcloths:


1. Benefits of gentle cleansing without ruining your washcloths. 

If you're familiar with Fairface Washcloths, you know we're all about soft and gentle. Our washcloths are made with sensitive skin in mind, and in fact, all skin types benefit from using a soft face cloth for daily cleansing.

Dermatologists recommend washing your face 2ce a day (and also after a heavy sweat) with a soft face cloth, so as not to cause irritation to the skin. When you use a traditional washcloth or anything with an abrasive texture, you can cause micro-tears to your skin which results in a mess of irritation and inflammation; a cycle that's hard to break.

Our soft, black Fairface Dark washcloths, made with 2 thick layers of luscious, soothing, soft flannel allow you to gently wash away impurities from the day, without leaving a trace of your make-up, clay, face oil, charcoal soap, turmeric mask, or whatever you've used on your skin.
No irritation.
No stains.
All that's left behind is clean skin.


2. Stain-free washcloths make you feel better.  

Did you know there is a psychological component between cleanliness and peace-of-mind? When you walk into a dirty house, it can drop your mood and even cause mental fatigue and stress.

The opposite is also true. Walking into a clean house with fresh linens on the beds and clean towels in the bathroom just makes you feel better. And although you might just think bleach will do the trick on white towels, often make-up or skin care products leave stains and dingy marks that don't ever completely come out.

By using designated black washcloths for facial cleansing and make-up removal, you not only save your white towels from stains, it can also make a big impact on your state of mind. 


3. You'll be a better guest. 

It's not just hard-to-please mothers who are in desperate need of a stack of soft black washcloths. A common complaint among VRBO and Airbnb owners from California to New York, Italy to New Zealand, is that renters ruin their white washcloths with make-up and skin care product stains. Many owners stated that even with mega amounts of bleach, they often end up having to completely replace towels and washcloths, which can get very expensive.

Be a gracious 5 star guest and bring your own black face cloths when you travel, whether it's renting another person's home, or staying with your in-laws. Not only will you be ranked as a great guest (p.s. on VRBO the owner can leave you a rating on cleanliness, & adherence to house rules), you may even be invited back!

And by the way, if you're a VRBO or Airbnb owner: provide a basket of designated black face cloths by the sink, indicating they are to be used for make-up removal and face washing, with a little friendly reminder about the house policies.

The TOP 6 Anti-aging clear skin tips from a licensed cosmetologist

How to stop break-outs and pre-mature aging before they start: 6 tips to better skin
The other day as I was playing around on my iphone, I realized how much better I looked through a Snapchat a filter. Anyone else had that same epiphany? It was a little startling, actually. Do I really look as old as the regular camera lens shows? Don't I kind of look more like the girl where my skin is all smooth and dewy, with hearts and sparkling stars circling my head?

Though I've been told many times that I look much younger than my age, the truth is, our skin ages with us. Even though we shed millions of skin cells a day and continuously rejuvenate new ones, certain things about the cell regeneration process slows down as we age, and the lives we lived decades ago, suddenly shows up on our skin.

Knock. Knock. Remember when you were 16 years old, baking yourself in the sun like a pig-on-a-stick without a drop of sunscreen? Happy 40th Birthday, I'm 24 years of sun damage in the making. Nice to meet you, and I told you so.

No matter if you're 16 or 76, the way you treat your skin matters. And, like stalking an old boyfriend on every social media platform, it will eventually catch up to you.

How to prevent break-outs and premature aging with these top 6 professional skin care tips

I recently had the opportunity to meet with a group of women and teens, led by a local cosmetologist, who shared the best advice she'd gleaned from all her years in the field of health and beauty.

Here are her top 6 skin care tips for keeping skin healthy, clear and youthful:
(*Affiliate links provided for your convenience)

1. Do NOT sleep with your make-up on!

2. Use a soft, clean washcloth daily to cleanse skin morning and night with a mild cleanser 
(recommended: Fairface Washcloths with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, or Vanicream Gentle Cleanser)

3. Use a gentle toner after cleansing
(recommended: Neutrogena Alcohol-free toner, Witch Hazel Alcohol-free toner - scented; or Witch Hazel Alcohol-free toner - unscented - my personal favorite; and apply with Sky Organics cotton balls)

4. Use Benzoyl peroxide, 2.5, 5 or 10%, on blemishes morning and night 
(recommended: Acne Free Terminator 10Benzoyl Peroxide 5% or Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment - my personal favorite).

5. Wear moisturizer and sunscreen every day 
(recommended: Vanicream Lite Lotion and Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion and for sunscreen, try Eucerin Daily Protection Face Lotion - Broad Spectrum SPF 30, or Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch

6. Change pillow cases weekly 2-3 times a week 
(recommended: silk pillow cases that protect skin and hair - choose from my personal favorites: Fishers Finery 25mm Luxury 100% Pure Mulberry Silk Pillowcase , or Amazon's Choice:  100% Pure Mulberry Slip Silk Pillowcase . If you're not a fan of silk or want to rotate it with soft cotton, try these Organic Cotton Pillowcases


Though there are many advances in skin care products that promise to turn back the clock, it's much easier and less expensive to simply take charge of your skin now, so you don't have to worry about 24 years of sun damage crashing your 40th birthday party.

And if you're already 40, 50, 60 or 70? Start from where you. Any day you protect your skin from future damage is a gift to your skin and to your future self!


Note: She did acknowledge that for some, who have tried these steps and still can't get their skin clear or have special skin care needs, it may be time to visit a dermatologist for extra guidance.

Best Reusable Face Cloths: why you should toss face wipes and grab a reusable face cloth

use a face cloth wash cloth to wash your face don't use wipes
Use reusable face cloths instead of wipes © FairfaceWashcloths
These days we are all becoming much more aware of what we put into our bodies, what we put on our bodies, and treating our bodies and earth with more respect.

Creating a skin care product that supports that mission is what Fairface™ Washcloths is all about. And we're here to provide you with a soft face cloth that is not only gentle and effective for cleansing your skin, it is also kind to the environment.

Here are the top 3 reasons why trading in your disposable face wipes for our reusable, washable, soft cotton face cloths is a great choice to consider. 

Benefits of using a washable / reusable face cloth



1. You choose which ingredients you put on your skin


If you care about what goes on your skin (and inevitably what is absorbed through it), then you may want to double-check the ingredient list on your favorite package of face wipes. One popular brand of facial wipes, for example, contains the following: 
Water, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Sorbitan Laurate, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-32 Methyl Ether Dimethicone, Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-4 Laurate, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Glycereth-18 Ethylhexanoate, Glycereth-18, DMDM Hydantoin, Dilauryl Citrate, Fragrance, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate
I'll admit, even with my smart glasses on I don't know what most of that means, well, except for water.

On the other hand, let's look at the ingredient list for our gentle brand of reusable face cloths:
100% cotton fabrics
Now we know an empty washcloth won't do you much good, but the point is that what you put on your face cloth is YOUR CHOICE. You don't have to put anything on your skin that you don't want to.

There are many options for natural skin care cleansers, the oil cleansing method, or face washes with beneficial, gentle ingredients you can actually identify and pronounce! And if one cleanser doesn't work for you, try another, and another. Because your face cloth can be introduced to as many different cleansers as you can dream up until you've created the perfect marriage. Like we always say, BYOC (Bring Your Own Cleanser) because our washcloths are young, free and single, until otherwise committed. 

2. More gentle to your skin


Remember that fancy list of chemicals and additives in the package of facial wipes? I can't imagine that all of that is gentle on your skin. And for those with sensitive skin? Fugettaboutit.

It's true, some skin types can tolerate more than others, but those with sensitive skin cannot. If you're using face wipes and experience any drying, redness or irritation? It's probably the ingredients your skin is screaming at. And even if your skin seems to tolerate it, you may not want all of those what's-it-called ingredients sinking through your pores.

The beauty of Fairface™ Washcloths, is that they are made with naturally soft 100% cotton flannel. No synthetic fibers or harsh textures that can cause micro-tears to the skin. No added chemicals or pre-embedded cleansers to worry about. When paired with the gentle cleanser of your choice, there is no better way to cleanse your skin gently and effectively, leaving skin feeling calm and looking beautiful.


3. Kinder to the environment, nothing to throw away


We have all heard about the growing concerns over toppling land-fills across the world. According to ZerowasteAmerica.org, an EPA statistic shows that there are just over 3,000 active landfills and more than 10,000 inactive landfills in the U.S. alone. That doesn't include the trash piled up in other countries.

In a conscious effort toward sustaining our earth, in addition to recycling and composting, it is also important to create less trash.

While a small number of eco-conscious companies offer biodegradable face wipes, most are just the run-of-the-mill wipe that ends up piled on top of those giant landfills.

By making this small change, switching to reusable face cloths instead of disposable face wipes, over a 5 year period, you're eliminating approximately 1,800 wipes that would have ended up in the landfill (if you use 30 per month), not to mention the $480 dollars you would have saved NOT buying disposable face wipes (at $8/month).

So toss your face cloths in the laundry, not the trash, and reuse them to your heart's content (we recommend using a clean face cloth for each use). Nothing to throw away, and that's something else you can feel good about.


♥ Kinder to the environment
♥ Kinder to your skin


By using products that are gentle on our skin and gentle to the environment, not only are we doing better for ourselves, we're doing better for the earth and the generations to come.

3 Quick Tips for Better Skin You Should Start Today

If your skin isn't at its best and you're battling break-outs, redness, dryness or irritation, making these few simple changes can jump start your way to clearer, better looking skin!

3 Easy Tips for Clearer Skin

 

1. Change your pillow case every night.

Do you have any idea what you're sleeping on? Skin oils, left-over makeup, sweat, and drool. The stuff nightmare's are made of. By simply sleeping on a clean pillow case each night, you're eliminating the bacteria-break-out caused by snuggling with a dirty pillow case all night. And since most people don't have a million extra pillow cases, cut it down by using the flip method. The first night, use one side of your pillow, then flip it for the 2nd night; 3rd night use a new pillow case, and so on. Good riddance sweaty drool face.

2. Wash your face 2ce a day with a soft washcloth

Just because you don't roll around in mud all day like a pig at a mud spa, doesn't mean your face isn't dirty. Pollutants in the air, sweat, skin oils, make-up, greasy foods that drip around your mouth, all the times you touch your face but don't even know you do (close to 16+ times an hour according to ABC News)...the truth is, your face isn't as clean as you think it is.

Washing with a clean, soft washcloth like Fairface Washcloths, helps your cleanser do its job better, by wiping away the grease, oil and grime effectively, yet gently. No worries about abrasive textures that can cause redness, irritation and break-outs. Gentle cleansing done right. You'll notice a difference right away in how much better your skin looks and feels.

3. Moisturize

It's a common myth to think that if you apply lotion to your face it will break out, when in reality, it's actually the opposite of that. Dry skin is much more prone to small tears and cracking that let bacteria in. A key to great looking skin is to keep it hydrated and moisturized.

Not only will moisturizer give your face a quick 5-year-face-lift by plumping and smoothing, it will help retain the moisture your skin already has, which is important for skin health and the prevention of inflammation and redness. Choose the right moisturizer for your skin type, apply it after you shower or wash your face, and you will begin to see a transformation in your skin almost immediately.

Maintaining clean, clear skin doesn't have to be complicated. Start today with these 3 easy steps and see how much better your skin looks and feels!

Not only do we love ♥ to receive great feedback from our customers, we also really enjoy getting to know who they are, what their personal skin care story is, and why they love our products. 

Although Fairface™ Washcloths are the best washcloths to use on sensitive skin because of their mild, gentle properties, they are also an essential part of any skin care routine due to the gentle, but necessary, exfoliation that takes place when using a washcloth for facial cleansing. 

Getting rid of dull, dead skin cells on the surface is a key part of maintaining healthy, radiant skin.

Skin Care Concerns:

I am a lucky woman, great genes. No skin problems at all, but as I get older and deal with some dryness, I find using a facecloth for exfoliation is a must. 

Why you love Fairface Washcloths:

I love both sides (Original Fairface™ Washcloths), I use the terry side twice and flannel once when I wash both morning and night.

Other Skin Care Products you love:

I am by NO means a hugely "natural" person but I find the best results for healthy skin is less is best. I started using Eve Lom a couple of years ago but found the herbs too irritating. But I loved using oil to cleanse. I have been using Josie Maran Argan Oil Cleansing Oil to cleanse, followed by her regular Argan Oil, then Argan Milk followed by Combat Ready Balm to seal in the moisture.
