As a 20-something year-old, I can firmly say that skin is in. From YouTube skin care tutorials and tips from Instagram beauty influencers to advice from wellness gurus about self-care, there is no shortage of information about skin care for women my age, younger and older. However, most of the advice tends to skew toward having a blemish-free complexion or smoothing out wrinkles. But our skin is the largest organ on our body and requires a lot more care that just aesthetics when it comes to defense against the elements.

I’m still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that it’s actually 2019. What?! The older I get, the less I understand how time really works. Why are Mondays so long and the weekends so short? Why do winters drag on and summers breeze by? I’m not sure I’ll ever figure it out. What I do know is that we can’t go back, so forward it is.

Earlier this month, I was fortunate to celebrate another year around the sun. While I treat every year as a “milestone” birthday (after all, you only turn each age once), I definitely understand making an extra splash for certain years. At 18, for example, you legally become an adult, which is a huge deal. And at 21 you’re legally allowed to cope with those new responsibilities of said adulthood with a nice cocktail. That’s an even bigger deal.

Memorial Weekend is right around the corner, marking the unofficial start to summer. Longer days mean more time to soak up all of the sun’s rays. From weekends at the beach to tropical vacations, this is the season where skin is in.

With every New Year, we often wonder how the last 12 months possibly went by so quickly. We’re now faced with a fresh set of months to make our mark on which can be equal parts inspiring and daunting.

NEW YORK—Ah, the holidays. They’re a time of cheer, joy and good tidings. At least, they’re supposed to be. But we all know that the holidays are often filled with last minute shopping at packed stores, catching flights at crowded airports and quite possibly a little too much family time.

NEW YORK—While Sophia V., OD, has always had an interest in fashion and writing, she feared that she wouldn’t be able to set herself apart from all of the other fashion blogs out there.

NEW YORK—What’s your favorite color? This is a question we’ve all answered at one time or another. And if we’re taking guesses, for New Yorkers it’s most likely 50 shades of black and for me, it’s always been pink. While colors can be a vehicle for self-expression and conveying emotion, how many of us can truly say we have a “signature” color? Click here

I got my first pair of glasses in the fifth grade, and oddly enough I was initially very excited. At the time, glasses were still more widely viewed as a medical device than a fashion statement. So, by the time I got to sixth grade, the newness wore off and I switched over to contact lenses, wearing my glasses sparingly.
