Since Veracity’s launch, Dr. Angela Lamb, a board-certified dermatologist and frequent guest on the Today show, has been sharing her expertise and commitment to skincare integrity as a member of our Medical Board of Advisors. Whether we’re trying to decide when to wear sunscreen (answer: always!) or what type of skincare products are right for us, Dr. Lamb is our go-to for advice on how to look and feel our best.
Here, she shares her skincare do’s and don’ts for women of all ages, why prevention is her number one prescription, and her must-have Veracity products.
Veracity: What are the most common problems that bring patients into your office?
Angela Lamb: The most common problems are acne, skin cancer screenings, rashes of some sort, and cosmetic concerns.
V: Is there something you wish all women knew more about when it comes to their skin?
AL: I wish they knew more about prevention. While aging is a natural process, you want to be refreshed and look the best version of yourself. I love doing cosmetic procedures, but it can be really challenging with somebody who's abused their skin. Patients come in and are like, “fix me.” And I'm like, “Ah, I wish you had used sunscreen earlier or not smoked or taken better care of yourself,” because at that point it can be challenging. People want to be fixed, which is great, but I also wish they were better about prevention and healthcare in general. Unfortunately, we as doctors often don't do enough as far as educating people on prevention strategies to keep themselves healthy, to keep themselves out of my office.
V: You have been an advisor to Veracity since its launch. What do you like about Veracity skincare and do you have any favorite products?
AL: I really like the BioEvolve Serum and the BioEvolve moisturizer. The products feel good going on, they don’t contain any fragrance, and they don't have a strong scent. What I like about Veracity is the focus on creating products that don’t contain any endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Veracity has integrity around the ingredients they use, and I think that's important. Patients are really asking for that right now.
