Mom Brain

We get it. Being a mom is full-on and full-time. Equal parts FUN and WTF. Our kids don’t come with instructions, and it’s ok if we don’t have all the answers. We’ll figure it out together. The best advice comes from our favorite experts and doctors, trusted mom friends, and learning on the job. Get your coffee — or wine! — and tune in to hear us spill it all. We got this. This is MOM BRAIN with Hilaria Baldwin and Daphne Oz. ... Show More

Dr. Arash Akhavan is back and schooling us on skin health! If you missed our first episode with Dr. Akhavan, you should scroll down and check it out, because it was chock full of information from our favorite Dermatologist. So much, that we couldn't fit it all into one episode, and we had to invite him back for part 2.

He is a board certified dermatologist who founded the Dermatology and Laser group in Manhattan and started the product line, Mod Skin NYC, but his biggest claim to fame is being the first returning guest on Mom Brain. Dr. Arash is a Castle Connolly Top Doctor Award Winner 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. He is also member of the faculty of The Mount Sinai Medical Center, where he is involved in the education of dermatology residents in their cosmetic and medical clinics.

This time around we delved into recent FDA announcements about toxic ingredients in sunscreens you should avoid for you and your kids. Also, skin tips for during and after the summer, the risks of too much product on your face, and dangers of at home DIY skin "repair" kits. Plus, anti-aging procedures, skin rejuvenation, and of course, botox, stretch marks and a ton more! So listen up and take notes.

Sun Screens: MD Solar Sciences, Blue Lizzard, Color Science
