Q: I have been using Clinique products and am wondering if I am doing the best for my very sensitive skin. I don't break out when I use them, but I'm not sure if the soap is harmful. I asked the sales woman, and she said it was fine because it was a superfatted soap. Is their Clarifying toner important for exfoliation? I find it rather strong, so I purchased the alcohol-free one, but I'm told it doesn't exfoliate the skin. Any advice?A: "Superfatted" does not mean a soap is free from irritating ingredients; soap is soap and it is generally lard and lye, which are drying and can cause skin irritation.

Most problems resolve themselves, and the basic rule of thumb for washing and choosing products is to go with what's simple, says Dr. Kate B. Puttgen, assistant professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine departments of dermatology and pediatrics and assistant director of the division of pediatric dermatology and cutaneous laser center. What are the basics that new parents need to know about washing newborns and caring for their skin?

Summer is just around the corner, but its damaging rays and humidity have already arrived. We all know too much sun can damage skin and speed aging, while too much moisture can clog pores. With the right products, you can keep your skin safe from the sun and harness the season's humidity. Here are five ways to make sure your skin stays healthy this season: 1. Pick a broad-spectrum sunscreen. New sunscreen labeling laws require companies to reveal whether their products block UVA rays, UVB rays or both.

Q: Do you know anything about BioMedics cosmetics? They are distributed by plastic surgeons.

I am a breast cancer survivor. I play tennis and golf five days a week and smear a high-SPF sunscreen all over my body. I also wear protective clothing to block the sun. I have heard that some sunscreens may have estrogenic activity. I'm supposed to avoid estrogen, so can you tell me more about sunscreens and estrogen? Several common ingredients in sunscreens have been shown to act like estrogen. One test-tube study showed that breast-cancer cells grew faster in the presence of such compounds.

I would like to point out a side effect of allergy medications that contain pseudoephedrine for nasal decongestion. Taking Claritin D left me completely unable to fall asleep. I was literally up all night with a racing heartbeat. I was so sleep-deprived that I couldn't work. I finally read the warning about nervousness, dizziness or sleeplessness. I called my doctor, who said I should switch to plain Claritin (without a decongestant). On this drug, I sleep like a baby. I urge anyone with insomnia to check all medications for pseudoephedrine.

I’ll admit, I don’t think I’ve ever stepped foot into a LUSH store.  I always found the stores to be a wee bit intimidating, and I didn't know much about the store. The other day, a box of LUSH products showed up for me to try. It’s kind of like food: if you put it in front of me, I’ll probably try it. That, and when I mentioned I received Lush products to any of my friends they all kind of freaked out, so I figured I’d been missing something. First of all, I had no idea that Lush had such an enviro-friendly mission, which is great.

Several months ago I started taking 160 milligrams of saw palmetto extract daily to slow the progression of male pattern baldness. To my surprise, the regimen seems to work. There is less hair in the bathroom sink, and I have noticed new growth on the temples. I haven't experienced any noticeable side effects, such as loss of libido. I looked in the medical literature for long-term side effects but found none. The longest clinical trial (for prostate enlargement) lasted two years. Do you know of any health hazards with saw palmetto extract?
