My skincare philosophy is rooted in science, but I also believe in the fantasy and ritual of beauty. Below is what I call a “beginner’s guide to skincare.” It’s simple—I recommend a tailored version of it to all of my millennial-age patients. And because I practice what I preach, it’s also my skincare routine. Here’s what I do...

Glossier products featured:

Milky Jelly Cleanser conditioning face wash

Description:

This is the ultimate daily face wash: use on dry skin to dissolve away makeup and grime, or on wet skin as you start your day. The pH-balanced, creamy gel formula is made with a blend of five skin conditioners so your face is left feeling healthy and soft, never tight. Its cleansing power comes from the same gentle cleaning agents found in contact lens solution, so it’s tough on impurities and still safe to use on your eyes. You’ll see.

Priming Moisturizer buildable hydrating creme

Description:

“Priming” means that it instantly brings out the best in your skin, so you have a fresh, glowing canvas that’s ready for makeup (but looks so good you might want to wear less). The ideal base for Perfecting Skin Tint, it visibly plumps skin up with moisture to create cushiony bounce and an even texture, which helps minimize the appearance of pores—minus any heavy blurring ingredients. The anti-redness complex soothes and evens skin tone, leaving a clean, dewy, balanced finish. This comforting cream allows you to layer and build up to the perfect amount of moisture depending on climate, season, or how your skin’s feeling on any given day.
