Photos of a scaly, discolored patch of skin on Trump's face have gone viral — here's what it is, according to a Yale dermatologist

  • President Donald Trump's skin has been a hot topic of debate for years.
  • Recently, the internet lit up with a new question about the president's skin: what is that discolored circle on the left side of his face?
  • Plus, the president enjoys being out in the sun — he has logged more than 100 golf course visits during his 16 months in office, which is enough to work up a golfer's tan.
  • But according to dermatologist Kathleen Suozzi from the Yale School of Medicine, the barnacle-looking patch of skin on Trump's face is probably not a sun spot, and it likely has nothing to do with his rosacea or tanning regimen, either.
  • Suozzi needed only a quick glance at a recent photo of Trump to venture a guess: it's likely a skin growth called keratosis.
  • But the freezing treatment for keratosis spots doesn't always work, and can leave that patch of skin lightened.

This cult-favorite sunscreen that goes on completely clear is supposed to work for every skin tone — so we put it to the test

  • The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you'll like.
  • Supergoop!'s Unseen Sunscreen is an SPF 40 sunscreen that's "totally invisible, weightless, scentless, [and] makeup-gripping." It's anti-oxidant rich, oil-free, and leaves skin with a velvety matte finish.
  • But, in everyday application, people love that it feels abnormally weightless, works on all skin tones, and acts like a silky, mattifying primer for makeup-wearers.
  • The Unseen ($32) is lightweight, packed with antioxidants, and feels closer to a makeup primer than a typical sunscreen.
  • Perhaps most impressive, though, is that the Unseen sunscreen remained universally invisible on the diverse skin tones of each of our testers — far removed from the chalky white residue of my childhood.
  • If you're looking for a sunscreen for your face that feels lightweight, non-greasy, grips makeup, and looks (actually) invisible on a wide range of skin tones, you're not likely to be disappointed here.

This former Wall Streeter turned down $2 million and pays herself less than her interns in order to build her company on her own terms

  • Ho's company, Evereden, is a skincare line that's almost entirely self-funded by Ho and her husband, who both worked in Wall Street's investing scene.
  • Ho says that their knowledge of investing led them to turn down $2 million in unsolicited offers from venture capitalists.
  • In turning down the cash, Ho said that she hopes to lead her company on her own terms.
  • Crafting a skincare line that's safe for babies isn't easy, and Ho has enlisted the help of pediatricians and scientists from Stanford and Harvard to create a product that uses ingredients she says are typically found in women's luxury skin products.
  • Ho said that most of the money she's put into her company has been spent on research.
  • While Ho said that the unsolicited offers from investors were flattering, she believes she and her husband made the right choice in turning them down.

Target is enhancing its beauty business

  • Target has announced that it will be adding three new features to its beauty department, both in-store and online, in order to smooth the shopping experience for consumers.
  • The company stated last Tuesday that it has added a new men's section with over 600 products to 11 stores, and it plans to expand the department to more than 80 by year's end.
  • The retail giant also announced in April that it's introducing eight new beauty brands to its lineup, which will add over 150 new products designed for medium to dark skin tones.
  • All of these efforts may add up to a better beauty shopping experience, helping Target grow its performance in the industry.
  • But if it can combine this advantage with a more inclusive lineup of beauty products that's accessible to everyone, it may be able to convert other online and in-store Target shoppers into beauty customers as well.

17 cheap and effective skin care products under $25 we swear by in our everyday lives

  • I asked my coworkers to share the affordable skin care products they use and love, because who better to take advice from than a discerning bunch of product reviewers?
  • I love face masks as a way to relax, but few have ever made a noticeable change in the quality of my skin.
  • It feels like my face is going to tighten and fall off every time I use it (I now add more water than is advised), but it has made a marked difference in the texture, tone, and clarity of my skin.
  • With tons of hydrating and brightening benefits, too cool for school's Egg Cream Mask is one of my favorite ways to unwind after a long day and simultaneously take care of my skin.
