Your Skin and the Change of Seasons
In the fall, when the temperatures drop and wind and rain strain our skin, it may need some extra pampering. I talked to Patricia Pol, the esthetician and expert in natural skin care at our spa in Palisades, NY, about how to best prepare our skin for the change of season. Here’s what she had to say. Me: How can the change of seasons affect my skin?Patricia: The change of season always affects our skin. While summer air is more humid and moisture-rich, the cold, dry air in fall and winter leaves our skin dehydrated, flaky and rough. You might notice more dry spots, especially in the T-zone (the area around your nose, chin and forehead)....

Sun Safety for Your Skin
The dog days of summer are here. Despite the heat, it’s still great to be outdoors, but whenever I set eyes on sunburned shoulders or bright red faces, I cringe—not just because it must be painful, but also because sunburns seem to be a risk factor for developing skin malignancies down the road. You may have heard that skin cancers are on the rise. Of the three types of skin malignancies, melanoma is the most dangerous. While fortunately it’s the least common of skin cancers, it accounts for about three-quarters of skin cancer deaths. So how does one recognize an early melanoma?

Arnica to the Rescue
Summer is finally here after a spring with a lot of rain and rather cool temperatures. When it finally turned warm a few weeks ago, everybody was out and about. The number of bicyclists that all of a sudden turned up on Route 9W, the popular biking route near Weleda’s headquarters, was quite staggering, and for me it was time to saddle up as well! It’s a rather scenic ride along the Hudson River, and I like to do my part for the environment by bicycling to the office. I am admittedly a fair-weather rider, so there is no need to look for me on the trails unless it is nice outside.The first ride of the season is always such a joy,...
