One of my very good friends and colleagues, Emily, experienced an interaction with two homeless people last fall that was incredibly touching. In NYC, we walk past the homeless time and time again and for some, they become invisible. Let's remember that they too, are people who are capable of love and need compassion.

A few years ago, I tried Fraxel, which unless you have severe acne scarring, I would never recommend. It was brutal (see post here) and while my skin looked very clean after the healing, all of my hyperpigmentation eventually came back. Enter PicoSure, a laser that was recently FDA approved for facial resurfacing with seriously, no downtime.
I love having the ability to interview people who inspire me. Today, I'm excited to share my latest with Maria Menounos, host of E! News and SIRIUS XM’s “Conversations with Maria Menounos." From her impressive hosting career to fit bod, she's someone I've always admired.
