How a Dermatologist Shops the Drugstore Beauty Aisle
By Anna Jimenez |
As a top dermatologist you have to be ahead of the curve when it comes to new skincare technology. That’s why we love to know what products derms are recommending to their clients and better yet, what they are using on their own skin to ward off the signs of aging. We chatted with New York City dermatologist, Dr. Julia Tzu to find out what she keeps in her beauty arsenal.
Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser
“I love this cleanser because it's gentle to my skin but effectively removes the dirt and oils so that my face feels clean. Use slightly warm water to open up the pores, and then apply the cleanser, rubbing in circular motions over the face, then rinse off. Finally, douse face with cold water to seal up the pores.” $13, Ulta.com.
Avène Retrinal 0.1 Intensive Cream
“This is a nice alternative to prescription strength retinoids, a noninvasive method of slowing down the aging process and evening out skin tone. It helps boost collagen production and decrease wrinkles.” $69, Dermstore.com
Neova Refining Eye Lift
“It gently hydrates the delicate skin underneath the eyes to decrease fine wrinkles. Apply with fingertips gently across (inner to outer motion) the under eye area.” $53, Drugstore.com
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer
“It feels light and non-greasy, provides some level of sun protection, and covers blemishes.” $13, Ulta.com
