My @devganscientificbeauty 12-Day Retinoid Micropeel 💎💎💎 These are my top 4 products for a Quarantine Skin Reboot. (Full disclosure: I also use the Advanced Revitalizing Cleanser, Microdermabrasion Scrub, and Recovery Cream.) If you are trying to improve your skin quality in a focused manner, the @devganscientificbeauty 🍋 Vit C, 💦 Hyaluronic, 💧 Retinoid Glow Serum, and 👁 Peptide Eye Cream are my top 4 picks. 💎💎💎 For regular usage, I suggest our hyaluronic serum and eye cream in the morning, and our vitamin C serum and retinoid glow serum at night. If you don’t mind a bit of mild peeling and dryness, you can use the retinoid glow serum and vitamin C serum twice a day for a 12-day retinoid micro-peel. 💎💎💎 for a complementary and customized product recommendations, please DM your concerns and a makeup-free photo to @devganscientificbeauty… Read my thoughts on the return to medical grade skin care in my previous post. #sciencemeetsbeauty

💫 What better time to take care of your #skin then NOW? Here, I share my current morning #skincareroutine, with an emphasis on 🤰#pregnancyfriendly #skincareproducts for #melasmaprevention and #skinbrightening. 🌞After gentle cleansing, I use a few drops of @skinceuticals CE ferulic, wait a minute to dry, #azelaicacid gel (prescription-based, helps with #acne #melasma #rosacea and #skinlightening), @skinbetter even tone correcting serum, @neocutis Lumiere eye cream, and @eltamdskincare UV clear sunscreen! 🌙 At nighttime, I use @skinmedica Lytera 2.0 instead of #skinbetterscience. If NOT pregnant, I would also use #hydroquinone and #retinoids to help with #melasma and #skinlightening!

April is Rosacea Awareness Month! . Rosacea is a common, chronic skin condition in which there is inflammation of the mid face. Rosacea can appear as a combination of persistent redness, skin thickening, flushing, bumps, prominent blood vessels and/or eye irritation. . For many patients, these symptoms may be constant, while others are able to associate a trigger such as: ➡️changes in weather, sun exposure, hot drinks, alcohol, spicy foods, emotional stress, or exercise. . The reason why there is an entire month dedicated to this is because approximately 16 million Americans suffer from rosacea and most don’t know it! Public education on the condition (like this post!) may help someone seek medical attention before it worsens. . For me personally, as a dermatologist, it is important to provide accurate education on this topic so that I can do my part in promoting greater social acceptance and understanding of rosacea. . ➡️General tips for patients with rosacea are to keep a diary to better understand possible triggering factors, always wear sunscreen and to consider gentle skincare and makeup products. . 💊While there is not a “cure” for rosacea, there are MANY treatment options that a dermatologist can prescribe depending on your specific type and symptoms including topical and oral medications as well as laser therapy. . 🧴Below are some over the counter products that I love for rosacea-prone skin. There are so many to choose from so this list is not exhaustive! These should not be used as a substitute for seeking medical advice! Finding a dermatologist to help you treat your rosacea in a multimodal approach is so incredibly important! . @vanicreamofficial free & clear liquid cleanser @drjart cicapair tiger grass cream @deciem azelaic acid suspension @larocheposayusa toleriane double repair face moisturizer and Rosaliac AR Intense Visible Redness Reducing Serum @smashboxcosmetics Photo Finish Reduce Rendess Primer @dermablendpro quick-fix color correcting concealer and flawless creator lightweight foundation . 🔗For more info on rosacea and #rosaceaawarenessmonth visit www.rosacea.org . 👇Please like, comment and share if you found this post helpful!
