Nick Carter Faces the Music
Nick Carter joined the Backstreet Boys when he was 12, and early fame and life on the road led to him abusing drugs and alcohol. He says he drank heavily while on the "Unbreakable" tour in 2008 and started to feel tightness and pain in his chest. Doctors told him he had the early signs of drug-and-alcohol induced cardiomyopathy, which is a disease of the heart muscle that can lead to heart failure.

Nick decided he needed to make some changes. He quit abusing drugs and alcohol, started to eat healthier and began to exercise.

Nick is currently on a 20th anniversary tour with the Backstreet Boys. He recently released a new book, Facing the Music and Living to Talk about It, where he opens up about how he overcame drug and alcohol abuse. 

He joins The Doctors to talk about his journey.

Fall Skincare
Dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee says fall weather means not only switching out the clothes in your closet, but also changing your beauty regime.

"As the climates get cooler, we turn the heaters on in our house. It dries up our skin," she says. "We need more moisture."
