Conversations: Dr. Ingleton

Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton

This fall a part of my personal journey is to commit to a skin care regimen. I’ve blogged a lot about setting goals and creating a playbook for success in my Monday Mojo series.  So I decided it was time to share a part of my personal journey with you. I’ve been going to the dermatologist for many years and I have to admit that sometimes skincare can feel like a part time job.  What I really want to do is get back to basics-I’m talking healthy, smooth, skin. To help me get that all-over glow I’m choosing Eucerin. This time around I not only wanted to develop a regimen but actually do some research and learn about the best practices and products to get healthy, glowing, smooth skin.

I reached out to Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton of Ingleton Dermatology in New York.  Dr. Ingleton is a member of the Eucerin Skin First Council. Her unique approach to skincare has not only made her the go-to authority on general and cosmetic dermatology for the media, but has also earned her a devoted list of clients in the fashion, beauty and music industries.  She took time out of her busy schedule to answer a few of my questions about developing a good skincare regimen, caring for the health of your skin, and the products that can help us achieve that overall glow.

Fashion’s Night Out Goes In!

Fashion’s Night Out is upon us once again!  Since it’s beginning four years ago, I’ve eagerly trekked into the city to take in the latest fashions, meet designers, sip cocktails, and take in the sights.  But after last year-as much fun as it was-I was pretty sure this year I’d do something different.

It was right around the time that a Kardashian (not sure which one or how many) showed up on the same block that I was strolling along.  That’s when the, already mob-sized, crowd in Soho quadrupled and got out of hand.   Yikes! Suddenly this wasn’t so fashionable.

Venus and Serena for NYT

Venus and Serena posing for the NYTimes is pure fitness envy.  The two of them could convince me to buy water in a can!  In fact, I might even get a little work out hustle in before the day is out.   … (Read More)

Chaka Khan, I'm Every Woman; Essence Music Festival '12

Wild hair? Check. Red lipstick? Check. Big voice? Check. It could only be Chaka Khan! I was just a girl when this woman was rocking front and center for the R&B group, Rufus.  Even then I loved the way her voice soared when she asked, “Do You Love What You Feel?”  Oh and love it, I did.  And when she sang, “Tell Me Something Good,” her voice seemed to inch deeper with every note of that guitar.  It made me giggle and marvel at the same time.  Her voice seemed endless at both ends of the scale. Then there was her style. … (Read More)

I love to write; so I’m no stranger to journaling.  Not only is it a way to capture a snapshot of your life, it’s therapeutic.  It helps you see where you are and how far you’ve come.  In fact, journaling has become so popular over the years that now you hear of people having multiple journals for different things.  Let’s see, there’s the gratitude journal, the food journal, the career journal and so on.  That’s a lot of writing (and venting).
