CIIN presents to you 11 skin doctors with a total of 159-year experience and zero wrinkles.. Some cool and weird ways of how they treat their own skin coming your way!
1 || They Follow The Hype Just Like We Do!
Like double cleansing for example.. Starting off with an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based one.. For these expert dermatologist this regimen is not just a buzzy treatment that’s trending short term, they actually believe in it and adopt it daily.. For New York based dermatologist Whitney Bowe, this is part of her anti-agin regimen.. Saying that double cleansing can actually preserve collagen.. No face rubbing involved as it can age the skin, she even removes her mascara with oil steering away from pulling out those precious lashes..
Vampire Facials.. A.k.a. platelet-rich plasma injections.. This treatment involves injecting extracts from own blood back into the face using tiny needles..Platelets are full of stem cells, which helps in the rebuilding of collagen..Both dermatologists; Marie Jhin and Bowe do this procedure twice a year and swear by their results..
Cool sculpting.. The technique is called cryolipolysis and involves destroying fat cells by freezing them with extreme cold.. L.A. based dermatologist Karyn Grossman swears by it after she froze her fat cells accumulated around her upper back and hips.. 2 cycles of cool sculpting might drop some noticeable inches..
2 || They Take Sun Protection VERY Seriously!
By now sunscreen has really become a non-negotiable issue.. Skin cancer prevention and fewer signs of waging are only a few of the benefits of sunscreen.. Applied daily that is.. Summer or winter..
For Sheer coverage..
New Jersey based dermatologist Jeanine Downy believes in sheer UVB formulas that can be re-applied throughout the day.. She uses the SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum SPF 34 Sunscreen..
For Sensitive Skin..
Maryland based dermatologist Elizabeth Tanzi suffers from rosacea so she uses mineral sunscreens that are gentler that chemical ones ..She likes SkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50..
For Lasting Protection..
Bow and Gohara believe in iron-oxides based sunscreens.. They even use a brush for touch-ups on top of makeup.. Doing so prevents melanoma.. Covering areas like the top of the eyebrows and between the eyes and around the nostrils..
3 || They Are Full Of Surprises..!
Dermatologists stock up on the most unlikely products..
Toners.. Well not the harsh stripping ones, Jhin uses the Epionce Purifying Toner with willow-bark extract.. Which contains hydrating ingredients..
Used topically, this skin lightener is safe.. Helps in fading dark spots, as littlee as two months..Obagi Nu-Derm twice daily will do the trick..
4 || They Do Damage Control
Just like us, dermatologists’ skin acts up and they know exactly what to do to the rescue.. for example if they suffer mild eczema They see propolis, which is a bee-pollen extract that has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties to help the skin heal itself..
5 || They Get Creative!
Forget about products and cosmetics here and take a look at what dermatologists do in terms of smart choices..
No-No To Rubbing The Eyes!
Instead they apply a cool compress on the itchy eye part.. Some dermatologists even use the bendy glasses that prevents the sensitive eye skin from creasing against the pillow..
They Love Their Bedtime..
Getting little sleep causes the body to be victim of inflammation, and especially it shows on the skin, problems like acne and rosacea which eventually lead to wrinkles..
They Are Physical Creatures..
High intensity work outs are equivalent to many products they use topically on their skin.. So dermatologists believe in consistent exercise..It enhances circulation, reduces stress and decreases inflammation that causes aging!
