Meet Dr. Litani
I created this website and started my blog to share my professional opinions about what’s going on in the beauty world which is bombarding us with information all over TV, magazines and social media. I have always loved fashion magazines and keeping up with celebrity shenanigans, including their beauty routines. I am a product junkie … hair, makeup, and skin! However, it’s hard for me to wrap my head around celebrities and “influencers” being considered skin experts just because they posted a video on instagram. So I’d like to use my blog, as well as my instagram, to dispel “fact from fiction,” comment on the latest beauty trends and give professional skincare and cosmetic advice. You can also explore the Carin’s Corner photo and video galleries showing many cosmetic and surgical before-and-afters and find videos previously posted on instagram with skin tips from someone who has dedicated her career to skin. Who wants to dig through an instagram feed? It’s all here and labeled! I’d like to share information about what you are interested in! So please drop me a note to let me know what you would like to hear and I'll put it in the queue to appear either on the blog or in an instagram video. Can't wait to hear from you!
