Stop Popping Your Pimples!

You get a pimple and usually the first thought that comes to mind is getting it off your face as soon as possible. If you have to pop it in order to do that, than so be it. Well, at Eastside Dermatology, we warn patients to STOP and take a moment to think about some other options before popping those pimples, which usually just makes them worse and leads to scarring. Need some ideas? Here are 5 recommendations from Dr. Alan Parks about how to not only get rid of pimples fast and without any negative after effects, but also prevent the pesky things in the first place:

1. Wash your face twice a day with a product that has either benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or glycolic acid
2. Use topical prescription products
3. Take an oral antibiotic
4. Have a facial from a certified esthetician
5. Have a chemical peel or microdermabrasion

Do you need product recommendations or want to make an appointment with our esthetician? Call Eastside Dermatology today and we’ll help get you on your way to beautiful (and pimple-free) skin.


Celebrities with the Most Beautiful Skin

Let’s face it, many people look up to celebrities for fashion advice, trends and product endorsements. When a star appears on the big screen, they look stunning and the general public wants to emulate them. Celebrities have some of the best-looking skin and a primary reason is because they have experts at their disposal at all times (which helps when the camera is rolling).

At Eastside Dermatology in Columbus, Ohio, our job is to make our patients skin look beautiful. We also have a good eye when it comes to amazing looking skin. We’ve compiled a list of the top five celebrities with the silkiest looking skin.

Kim Kardashian

She has the type of creamy skin complexion that makes people jealous. The reality star has admitted that she often receives laser treatments that effectively resurfaces the skin.

Nicole Kidman 

Kidman may be one of the best role models in Hollywood for judicious use of sunscreen. With her fair skin, Kidman could easily burn. Instead, she insists on wide-brimmed hats and an adequate amount of SPF meaning that her skin looks just as it did when she caught Hollywood’s eye years ago.

Jennifer Aniston
Aniston undoubtedly uses many beauty products — the National Enquirer once reported that she spent $20,000 a month on her appearance. If you saw Aniston at first glance, you’d never guess she was 43-years-old.

Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman is known for her perfectly clear and radiant complexion, her skin seems to glow so naturally. The star insists on the importance of drinking a lot of water every day to keep the skin moisturized and fresh.

Beyonce Knowles

Knowles had the following skin tips: “Keep cellulite at bay by drinking six glasses of water a day to keep skin hydrated. Exfoliate twice a week and exercise regularly to increase blood flow. While Knowles may not be a dermatologist, her skin tips are working for her!
