Dr. Howard’s Routine

dermatologist-recommended skincare$90 $113

Our favorite dermatologist’s favorite products.

What it is: A practical skincare routine, as used, loved, and recommended by our friend and board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Camille Howard (@dermbeautydoc).

Why it's special:

  • Milky Jelly Cleanser: “I’m a woman of minimal fluff, and this is a simple and elegant part of my skincare regimen. I tend to use moisturizing, lotion-based cleansers (especially in the morning), so this one fits like a glove. There’s no film and it leaves my skin soft and hydrated.”

  • Universal Pro-Retinol: “I use a pea-sized amount every night. A big hesitation for a lot of people with retinoids is the fear of irritation, but this has a smooth consistency and ingredients like glycerin (a great humectant!) to support skin in retaining moisture.” (You can read more about retinoids and how to use them here.)

  • Priming Moisturizer Rich: “I’m always looking for a good moisturizer–this one is rich enough to use as a moisturizing night mask and I wake up with nicely hydrated skin in the morning. It really feels like butter and has ceramides and fatty acids, which play a role in preventing transepidermal water loss. Gentle products are key to maintaining a good skin barrier, especially when you’re using a retinoid.”

  • Invisible Shield: “In my book, sunscreen is non-negotiable, and this one is, by far, a superstar product in the lineup. The finish is impeccable—there’s no heavy coat on your skin after you use it, I’m able to layer foundation on top, and my skin feels like skin.”

  • “In the office, I review every step of my patients’ skincare routines because the order in which you apply products may be just as important as the actual ingredients. After cleansing at night (with Milky Jelly), once my skin has dried, I apply Universal Pro-Retinol. Next, you have to moisturize (this is an absolute must for me)—I like Priming Moisturizer Rich. And always use SPF in the mornings.” (team tip: if you have combo skin, try Priming Moisturizer in lieu of Priming Moisturizer Rich. For oily skin, we recommend Priming Moisturizer Balance.

How to Use :

  • For your evening routine only! Smooth a pea-sized pump over freshly cleansed and patted-dry skin. Wait around 15 seconds for it to fully absorb, and then follow with a moisturizer. Start with one or two nights per week and increase slowly (you can work up to using it every night). Since retinoids may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, always use sunscreen the following morning.

  • Warnings: For external use only. Keep out of eyes. Do not use if pregnant or nursing. This product may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, use sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product. Stop use if excessive peeling or irritation occurs.

  • Important reminders: For sensitive skin types, apply a hydrating serum (like Super Bounce) before Universal Pro-Retinol, in addition to following with a moisturizer. If you’re new to retinoids, try patch testing on a small area (like your wrist) before committing to using all over your face. If you’re also using Alpha Hydroxy Acids or other chemical exfoliators (like Solution), acne treatments (like Zit Stick), or other retinoid products consider alternating nights with Universal Pro-Retinol.

Cruelty free, dermatologist tested, and formulated without fragrance

1.18 fl oz / 35 ml

Key Ingredients:

0.5% Retinyl Sunflowerate: A retinol derivative composed of retinol and sunflower seed fatty acids. It’s a new innovation in the world of retinoids, found to be less irritating than its predecessors, yet just as efficacious—it’s shown to improve the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, texture, and blemishes. We put 0.5% in our formula (enough to get the benefits, while still being tolerable for all skin types)

Stevia Extract: Sourced from the stems and leaves of the Stevia plant, it helps smooth the overall appearance of your skin, specifically working on the fine lines. Think of it as retinol’s naturally-derived supporting actor

Mondo Grass Root Extract: A plant-derived extract from the Ophiopogon Japonicus Root, it acts as a humectant to help your skin hold onto moisture. This keeps your skin conditioned, and helps minimize unwanted irritation that often comes along with using a retinoid
