We love answering customer questions, and we’ve answered a lot of them over the past five years. So we thought we’d sprinkle a few of your most frequently asked ones — and our answers, of course — here and there into our blog. One of your most popular questions: How do I layer skincare products?

Marie-Veronique Nadeau and her eponymous skincare line have been on our radar for some time. But it wasn’t until someone described her as a “mad scientist with a heart of gold” that we really sat up and paid attention to this wonderful little brand from Berkeley. (Is there anything more intriguing than all of those things put together?) Check out our entertaining and informative interview with Marie herself.

Clogged pores and blackheads plague most of us at least some of the time. So we asked Julia March, master facialist who has tended to the complexions of such clear-skinned beauties as Linda Evangelista, Liv Tyler, and various Evas (Herzigova and Mendes), to help us figure out how to put an end to clogged-pore aggravation — once and for all.

When you’re already on the lookout for lines and wrinkles, acne can seem like an added insult – whether your struggle with the spots is a constant battle or a monthly skirmish. Why does acne still hang around when you’re well beyond the angst-ridden teen years? And what’s the best way to deal with it? We spoke with renowned dermatologist and adult acne expert Debra Jaliman, MD to find out.

M Picaut recently introduced a new product, Hydra Miracle Serum, which has quickly become one of our favorites. Read on to find out how Mette came up with the idea and hear how she uses it to help her skin transition from the cold Swedish winter to long, warm summer days.

Sunscreen: we all know we should wear it. We also know that slathering thick goop on our skin and facing the world with ghostly pallor is not terribly enticing. Sigh. So is it really necessary? (Yes. And don’t worry: we carry a fantastic collection of featherweight mineral sunscreens that will blend invisibly into your skin.)
To understand what we need to know about sunscreen and clear up a few frequently asked questions, we spoke to Elizabeth K. Hale, M.D., a leading expert in the field of dermatology with a particular passion for sun protection. She's a devoted runner, and she's the Vice President of The Skin Cancer Foundation.

Our go-to dermatologist, where hair health is concerned, is the nationally recognized hair loss expert Diane Berson, MD. We get many questions about how to handle hair loss for women, so we figured she'd be the perfect person to break it down for us. Here, Dr. Berson describes the most common types of hair loss as well as their causes, and she outlines the best available treatments that actually work for each type of hair loss.

We share many clients with Kristina, and it’s amazing to see how much change her treatments can effect. We describe her often as a “skincare detective” — she’s often the first to identify what’s going on with her clients' bodies as a result of what she sees in their skin. We asked her for some universal tips to help us get our skin, and our bodies, in good shape for spring.

It’s no secret that we're fans of sea buckthorn. We’ve delved into the benefits of the "miracle berry" before, but we neglected to tell you about the magic of the sea buckthorn leaves — a key ingredient in MyHavtorn’s Essence. We got the full scoop from Robin, MyHavtorn’s founder.

We asked our favorite San Francisco makeup artist, Melissa McMillan, to share some quick tips to freshen up your look for spring. She also shares some great suggestions about refreshing your makeup after work or at the end of a long day — whether it's spring, summer, fall, or winter — so that you can go straight out to dinner or cocktails and prompt everyone to wonder if you took a side trip to a spa beforehand.
