Kaitlyn Bader, Editor: Thank you so much for joining me today. I appreciate your time. What are three takeaway points from your second session “Skincare 2022: Topicals and Supplements?”

Ablon: So, “Skincare 2022” starts with the scientific basis of skin care and individuals are looking to get back to basics physicians are attempting to marry science with nature. And everyone's focusing on the ingredients story and with this in mind, it's important to understand basically, the scientific basis and mixing of ingredients like peptides, antioxidants, mushroom tyrosinase, retinols, retinoids, and cannabinoids, and remember, you also are what you eat. In a perfect world, your nutrition would be enough, but adjuvant medical nutrition therapy can be important because our standard American diet the acronym is SAD, which is really sad, you are what you are. So, it's important I think that we talked about this and then supplements like collagen and other ones can be very helpful for helping healthy skin and body and life.
