While researching on Forbes.com the other day, I came across a list of 10 words that should be “erased from your vocabulary – immediately.” Being an editor, I instantly became intrigued with what this list could consist of. Personally, I believe that if certain words should not be in my vocabulary, they definitely should not be included in writing… and after reading the list, I…
While scrolling in my social media app the other day, a cute quote passed on the screen. It had a simple drawing of Winnie the Pooh and his friend Piglet. The text read above it: “What day is it?” “It’s today,” squeaked Piglet. “My favorite day,” said Pooh. While I am not quite sure what made me stop to read a Winnie the Pooh quote,…
Creating new habits can be hard. Breaking old habits can be even harder. Both are required for growth and healthy living. When taking the time to learn something new in your life, most often it can feel gratifying to reach a significant goal. Besides the benefit of learning something new, you have also improved yourself for the better. Most of these positive improvements can be…

Juggling the necessities of a personal life and a career is an unending test. We deal with so many things on a day-to-day basis: advancing in our career; developing our relationship with our significant other; catching up with friends; raising our children; helping our elderly; constantly growing, whether physically, spiritually or mentally; dabbling in a hobby; tackling the household chores; and keeping up with the…
Considering today's busy world, sometimes we do not notice when we put others before ourselves. Day-to-day demands of work, education, marriage, children, in-laws, friends, and even pets can make us feel like a professional juggler of priorities. At times it feels as though there is just too much going on in our life! To top it all off, it might feel as though there is…
Within seconds of first meeting someone, we unconsciously judge the person. After forming the first impression, we normally do not go beyond it to look for any accuracy in our perception – unless it seems like a serious situation. While this is an innate characteristic in us all, how we prepare for our first impression with others can pave a road to a positive lasting…
Vince Lombardi is considered to be the most successful professional football coach of all time. A popular story of Coach Lombardi comes to mind from his infamous "This is a Football" speech. During the first team meeting of the pre-season, the legendary coach would gather all of the players on his NFL team together in the locker room. He would hold up a football and…
I am probably in the minority with the following statement, but I love spring cleaning! I love the organization… the cleaning… the figurative breath of fresh air and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with a clutter-free space. I find that it promotes optimistic thoughts, helps me gain clarity, and creates a sense of success. There is just something about having a clean space that makes…
I recently read a quote of someone referring to New Year’s resolutions going “in one year, out the other.” I could not help but give a little laugh. But is this not true of most of us? It seems that in such a trying economy, resolutions to spend less money and save more would be almost a required priority. But unfortunately, our good intentions get…
Greetings, and welcome to an exciting new year. All of us at DERMASCOPE wish you happiness and prosperity in all your endeavors. I draw the inspiration for my opening message from the many replies we received from readers to our monthly Closing Thoughts department. Each month, we pose a question on our website and encourage our readers to provide feedback on their experiences. We then…
Welcome to the month of December! For adults and children worldwide this is probably the most anticipated month of the year. In fact, preparations for this month seem to begin earlier and earlier every year. Just recently, I made a quick stop at my local grocery store to pick up a few items and as soon as I entered the store my ears were bombarded…
A kaleidoscope of sun-kissed golden hues of gold and orange paint the sky and nature; pumpkins, scarecrows and dried cornstalks decorate front yards and porches; cheers of team spirit and camaraderie herald through crisp fall air at football games; cool, windy breezes and the billowing of smoke from chimneys; warm cups of cocoa or tea being grasped while snuggling under a soft blanket; the sweet…
As a young girl, time seemed to go by at such a slow pace. While in elementary school, I wished to be in intermediate; while in junior high, I could not wait to be in high school; and ironically by the time I was in high school, I was counting down the days until I graduated. Then, in what seemed like a blink of an…
The month of September is upon us and for many it signifies a month of transition. Although the weather still signifies the hot temperatures of the summer months, it also means the return of school and the end of summer vacation. Change is in the air during the month of September, and Jessica Millsaps captures the month beautifully through the words in her poem, September…
In our July issue, we focused on the largest organ of the body, our skin, and how body treatments play an integral part in its overall health. Within our August issue we take this concept a step farther by focusing on exfoliation.  Our skin holds us together and protects us from harm, but did you also know that it is constantly changing, always evolving and…
Our skin, like our heart, lungs and kidneys, is an organ. Actually, as most of you are aware, it is the largest organ in the human body. Sadly, however, most people take their skin for granted, not even realizing everything it does for them; that is until a problem arises! But our skin has a crucial job to do. Not only does it literally hold…
Summer time is here! For me, this time of year signifies long, sunny days spent at the lake or on the beach. In my childhood, these summer mornings included the sounds of me and my sisters running around, laughing and bubbling over with joy at the prospect of what the day had in store for us.
The golden rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” is a well known saying. Whether you are a religious person or not, this rule, also known as the Ethic of Reciprocity, sets a standard that most people strive to follow. Simply put, we should strive to treat other people as we would wish to be treated ourselves.
When I step into a business, whether it be a spa, grocery store, or even a gas station there are a couple of things I pay attention to. Is the business clean and inviting? Does it carry the items I'm looking for? Are their prices reasonable? Then, last but definitely not least … customer service. Was I greeted when I entered? Are their employees helpful…
Spring is in the air and the cool, cold weather of the winter months is coming to an end. A sense of awakening thrives as flowers begin to bloom and grass begins to experience a rebirth with its vibrant green colors. The month of March is fresh, fabulous and beautiful!
