Dr. Dan Jacobs Creator of Alon Labs formulas. So we want to look young, protect our skin from sun damage, and try to prevent the way-more-common-than-you-think experience with skin cancer.  Right?  Who wouldn’t? As you try to figure out what to do and how to spend your hard-earned money, though, good luck.  Advertisements and hyped articles are everywhere, and oh, yes, this treatment or that one probably only cost somewhere between $300 and several thousand.  Even for medical...

Cleopatra put spoiled milk on her face to stay young, which probably marks one of the first recorded lactic acid skin peels in history. 2000 years later, one might ask about the progress we’ve made.To this day, we use chemical or laser peels and other treatments that either remove the outer layer of skin or inflame the deeper skin in hopes that the process of “healing” will lead to renewed, refreshed skin. In the 90s, Cleopatra’s lactic acid was replaced with hi-tech and high-powered CO2 lase...
One of the fascinating observations in nature is that plants exposed to massive amounts of sunlight over the course of decades, or even centuries, show no damage or “aging.” We, on the other hand, are destined to pay dearly for every sun burn or unprotected exposure to sunlight with uneven pigment, dry skin, wrinkles, and even sun related skin cancers. Why?It turns out that plants have far more effective molecules for preventing penetration of unwanted wavelengths of sunlight. They are also...
