Inside a Dermatologist's Beauty Cabinet: Adebola Dele-Michael

When it comes to the latest and greatest science behind skin care, dermatologists are the theoretical gatekeepers. So, it only makes sense to find out what over-the-counter cleansing and exfoliating products they are using on their own skin. That’s why we took a sneak peek inside the beauty cabinet of New York dermatologist Adebola Dele-Michael, MD. Here is what she uses every morning:

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser 
“I always recommend gentle cleansers for all skin types,” says Dr. Dele-Michael, who loves this cleanser because it cleans and softens without drying out her skin. $13, ulta.com

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant 
For daily exfoliation, Dr. Dele-Michael uses this gentle exfoliating powder. “It is very important to exfoliate because it helps remove surface impurities, soothes rough skin and reveals a brighter, cleaner complexion,” she says. “I love this one because it is not too harsh on my skin and I can use it every day.” $54, dermalogica.com

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Cleansing Pads
Dr. Dele-Michael uses these pads like a toner after cleansing. They contain soy extract and salicylic acid to treat and prevent breakouts. $7, aveeno.com

    Please more articles like THIS! I would love to know what the professionals use! Showing what Dermatologists use as part of their skin care regime is an interesting way to see what's exactly reasonable and or not affordable for consumers to use.
