By ·
Untitled 1

The logic goes that if a skin care product is good enough to be used by a dermatologist—a doctor that knows the most about skin functioning and aging—than it’s not just a good product, but a great one. That’s why we asked New York dermatologist Marina Peredo, MD, to open up her beauty cabinet and let us see what she uses every day on her skin. Because if it’s good enough for her, than it’s good enough for us.

Skinfluence Alpha Cleanser

What does it do?
“Everything! It removes makeup and the papaya extract gently resurfaces skin.”

Why do you love it?
“The formula is nondrying and nonirritating, yet it cleanses deeply.” 

Any tips for cleansing?
“You should wash your face twice daily. If you feel as if your skin is rough or uneven, mix a little baking soda with some water to create a DIY home face scrub.” $16, skinfluencenyc.com

Revision Skincare DEJ Eye Cream 

What does it do?
“It has everything a woman needs for the eye area. It rejuvenates with peptides, brightens with vitamin C, and has antioxidant benefits with goji berry and cucumber water to help with puffiness.”

“I love everything about it. The texture is creamy, it is fragrance-free, and unlike with some rich eye creams, it doesn’t cause makeup to slip.” 

Any tips for using eye cream?
“You should always apply with a patting motion using your ring finger. And, DEJ can be applied to the upper lid as well to help with crepiness.” $80, revisionskincare.com
