Short Hills, NJ oculoplastic surgeon Baljeet K. Purewal won't just use any beauty product: "Everything I use must contain ingredients that serve a specific purpose for me," she says. "When I apply my skin-care products, I like to feel like it is a treat to nourish and protect my skin. And when I take good care of my skin, I do not need to wear a lot of makeup, which is important for me because I like a dewy, fresh look." Here's all the products she uses to achieve just that.
“To clean my skin without stripping it, I like AmorePacific Treatment Cleansing Foam ($50). Then I use SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum ($281), a blend of growth factors, peptides and antioxidants. For hydration, I like the plumping effects of SkinMedica HA5 ($178), especially around my crow’s-feet—under my eyes I use Environ Youth EssentiA Vita-Peptide Eye Gel ($86). For sun protection: SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair Tinted SPF 34 ($68).”
“I use SkinMedica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser ($47) to both exfoliate and remove my makeup. Then I apply SkinMedica Retinol Complex 0.5 ($78) to minimize fine lines and the size of my pores. Twice a week, I use Fresh Face & Eye Brightening Pads ($160, available at Fresh Face & Eye) in place of retinol to even my skin tone and reduce breakouts. As my last step, I apply NeoCutis Lumière Illuminating Eye Cream ($97)—it’s packed with growth factors and intensely hydrates my skin.”
