product spotlight + PRE-ORDER!: root resilience anti-aging scalp serum

One of my favorite things about my job is that I get to see a product from start to finish. When I heard that Dr. Gross was developing a line of haircare products, I was kind of surprised. What does skincare have to do with good-looking hair?

Turns out, everything.  Find out more and pre-order!

Popular with high schoolers and grandmothers alike, this is another one of our wonder products, so it’s no wonder that SELF Magazine awarded it this year’s Healthy Beauty Award for Best Mask. Whether you’re using it on enlarged pores, excessively oily skin, or as an all-over pimple prevention treatment, it gets the job done!  Read on to learn more about how it works, why you need it, and to see a before and after shot!

get the look: my picks for spring – an exclusive set!

Now is the month of maying, and I am absolutely loving this radiant spring weather! How about you? Even if the weather in your neck of the woods isn’t super sunny, you can still get a complexion to match this beautiful month! I put together a fun trio of spring essentials just for dgskincare.com fans — and that includes you, my lovely blog reader.

Personally, I find that as the weather warms up, I have a few very specific desires for my skin’s appearance. I want it to look clean, fresh, dewy, and radiant, and I also want to start lightening up my makeup routine. The kit I’ve put together, “Eternal Spring,” contains everything I need to achieve the spring complexion of my dreams.

1)    All-In-One Cleanser with Toner

As I may have mentioned around here, I am terrible at remembering to take off my makeup. This cleanser gently washes away dirt, oil, and even waterproof makeup while soothing and balancing skin.

2)    Alpha Beta® Glow Pad for Face

As you may have guessed, this is a face-sized version of our Alpha Beta Glow Pad for Body. It’s exfoliating, so it reduces pore size (a must!) as well as firming skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. It contains Active Vitamin D, so you can get the benefits of “the sunshine vitamin” as well as a natural-looking glow without the harmful side effects of the sun’s rays.

3)    Hydra-Pure™ Oil-Free Moisture

My skin is often dry, but when weather gets warmer, I don’t get rid of my moisturizer – I just switch to a lighter formula! This one makes my skin feel like velvet without feeling greasy. It contains powerful anti-aging ingredients as well as a unique Chelating Complex™ to detoxify skin of harmful agents, including heavy metals.

You can get all these products for just $200 (that’s a steal, trust me!) or you can check out each product individually. We have other great spring skincare value sets — some perfect for Mother’s Day! — and I invite you to check them out. You’ll never know what kind of deal you’ll find!

Besides using this kit, I take my dog on a walk in the sunshine to get my best spring skin. How do you get your spring glow?

Happy Friday! I don’t know how the weather has been in your neighborhood lately, but here in Manhattan, it’s finally starting to warm up and really feel like spring. Not only am I excited to switch from a down jacket to a trench, but I’m more than ready to start wearing more skirts and dresses.

The only thing that keeps me from baring my legs is the fact that my legs are blindingly pale from being cooped up all winter. But now that I use Alpha Beta® Glow Pad for Body, I no longer have to worry.  Read on for benefits!

earth day + a giveaway!

Coming up on Monday, April 22nd is Earth Day! Is it something you celebrate once a year or a lifestyle you practice every day?

Here are a few of my favorite ways to cut down on my carbon footprint. Keep reading for info about our giveaway…

NEW! ingredient corner: licorice

We’re pretty transparent about what ingredients we use here at Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™, but just because I know what’s in our products doesn’t mean I know what they all do! I figured that I’m not alone on this — I tend to focus on immediate results of a product than think about the science behind how it works. Because of this, I decided to start this feature on the blog – Ingredient Corner! If you have a particular ingredient you’d like to know more about, comment and I’ll see what I can do. So without further ado…Licorice!

exciting news!

product spotlight: alpha beta® daily glow moisture

Sure, we at the corporate office all love a new product when it launches, but this one is particularly special.

Alpha Beta® Daily Glow Moisture
Alpha Beta® Daily Glow Moisture
I feel like everything out there – and I don’t just mean skincare – claims that everyone can use it or it looks good on anyone. You know what happens when I try a product that’s one-size-fits-all? I end up hating it. Whether it’s foundation that automatically matches your skintone (too dark!), hair oils that are for all textures (too greasy!) and everything in between, I’m often dissatisfied with something that I, along with everyone else, am supposed to be able to use.

But Alpha Beta® Daily Glow Moisture is different. I swear! Keep reading…
