    InStyle – What’s the Difference Between Physical & Chemical Sunscreen? Here’s Everything You Need to Know

    Beauty editors worth their blowouts are often preaching the virtues of year-round SPF protection; nearly every anti-aging story we write recommends consistent application to prevent sun damage and aging. Most dermatologists recommend using a broad-spectrum formula with SPF 30+ on the daily—but you’ll still have the dilemma of whether to pick a physical or chemical sunscreen. If you’ve been left wondering what the difference is between the two, here’s your primer:

    That Girl At The Party – Botox: Fact and Fiction With Dr. Tabasum Mir

    With Spring here, after a very nasty depressing winter, I am like a butterfly ready to come out of the cocoon.

    Thus I am doing a series on those tiny things you can do to boost your looks without too much pain and suffering.   First up, Botox.

    I have had Botox a number of times with varying effects. The first doctor was amazing, the last one not so much.  So I was very fortunate to chat with, and be treated by, the lovely and very talented Dr. Tabasum Mir.  The third time was definitely the charm as she gave me the best boost I have ever had! Everyone keeps saying how great I look.

    Read on for my Q&A with Dr. Mir about Botox and her wonderous skincare line, MirSkin.

    TGATP:  Are there any measures people can take to make their Botox last longer or take more effectively?

    Dr Mir:  Botox lasts about 4 months, so maintanence is about 3 times a year. There isn’t a trick to making it last longer. But you can make your skin look better by using sunblock to prevent the wrinkles from getting deeper.

    XEX Mag – DERMATOLOGIST DR. TABASUM MIR DISCUSSES THE #KYLIEJENNERCHALLENGE

    Interview & Article: T.Cooper

    Dr. Tabasum Mir is the perfect combination of brains and beauty; this is probably why she was cast as one of the stars of the Bravo TV dating series, “The Singles Project”. Aside from being a gorgeous reality star, Dr. Mir is also a successful dermatologist, and owner of MirSkin Inc. in New York City. The rising popularity of the “Kylie Jenner challenge” has caused Dr. Mir to be concerned for young people who do not understand the possible dangers of partaking in the lip plumping challenge. We recently spoke with Dr. Mir to discuss her participation in reality TV, her career as a dermatologist, and the health risks of it.

    America knows you best for your appearance on “The Single’s Project”, how was your experience on the dating show?

    It was really interesting because of the fact that it was done in real time.  A lot of people were watching us [the cast of the “Singles Project”} and would want to date us, but I felt like they were memorizing what we like, and then pretended to be that person [we described]. It was really hard to separate genuine people from people with ulterior motives. I remember being on the Today Show, and  the guy  there who said he wanted to date me  literally reiterated everything  I said that I needed in a man over the last few episodes [of “The Singles Project”]. I felt like people were watching so that they knew what to say to us when they met us in person. One guy even said to me that he told the producers to make sure that his business name was featured – he said that to me directly!

    In recent news, Bruce Jenner has come out to the world as a transgender female, and had adopted the name Caitlyn. After a very public interview with Diane Sawyer, and gracing the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair, Caitlyn debuted her much more feminine appearance. New York City dermatologist and owner of MirSkin Inc., Dr. Tabasum Mir, gives her thoughts on what procedures were necessary for Bruce to transition to the knockout we now know as Caitlyn Jenner.

    Article & Interview T. Cooper

    How do you feel about Caitlyn Jenner’s journey?

    I feel like you can never fully understand what’s going on in someone’s life or in their mind if you’ve never been there.  When I look at what she’s going through I can only relate it to any kind of struggle I experience in my life. I know that [when you’re experiencing hardship] the goal is always to become happy again, and for that I can only applaud her. I’m glad that she’s doing what it takes to make her feel happy again and be true to herself.

    Well, actually, in front of celebrity dermatologist Dr. Tabasum Mir is actually where we found ourselves, seeking her guidance. The talented physician is well aware of the challenges of hyperpigmantation, having dealt with it herself.

    She spoke to StyleBlazer about common myths, solutions and challenges– see the surprising things she had to say below.

    On the basics of hyperpigmentation: “Hyperpigmentation is caused by many things such as birth control, sun exposure and any abrasion trauma to the skin and that can be from tweezing, scratching and/or pimples. The abrading trauma to the skin causes inflammation then the inflammation to darken. This is called post inflammation hyperpigmentatiom and extra melanin is produced. A lot of people think elbows and knees are darker because they’re suppose to be but because they’re rubbing against things like other areas of the skin –table tops, clothing fabric, etc– they’re darker from that abrading trauma.”
