5 Awesome New Skin Care Products

My Favorite New Skin Care Products I recently attended the Orlando Dermatology Aesthetic and Clinical conference back in January. I’ve attended this conference in the past and always find it enjoyable, educational, and absolutely loaded with goodies in the exhibit hall.
