Ever wish you could catch a glimpse of a dermatologist’s personal skin care stash? (Who hasn’t?) Well then, your wish is our command. Here, we asked Dr. Debra Jaliman, world-renowned New York-based dermatologist and author of the book Skin Rules, to divulge her 9 favorite skin care products at DermStore.
Why She Loves It: “This is a multitasking anti-aging cream. It has hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which are moisturizing, as well as caffeine, which helps constrict blood vessels and reduces puffiness under the eyes. Plus, it has bisabolol, an anti-inflammatory, and PSP skin proteins (growth factors) to help stimulate collagen production.”
Why She Loves It: “What I like about this night treatment is that it combines moisturizing ingredients glycerin and shea butter with NIA-114, a form of vitamin B3, and retinol. It’s a great all-around antiaging treatment.”
Why She Loves It: “It’s lightweight, but it contains high concentrations of zinc (9%) and titanium (7%), so it blocks both UVA and UVB rays really well. Plus, it’s waterproof, and I can even use it as a light concealer.”
Why She Loves It: “When I need more coverage and more sun protection, I choose this. It contains 20% zinc oxide and 2% titanium dioxide, which really protects while giving great coverage. Plus, it has omega-3 and omega-6 to help minimize inflammation.”
Why She Loves It: “If you have acne-prone skin, this 2% salicylic acid astringent is very effective at clearing clogged pores.”
Why She Loves It: “I use this to take my makeup off at night—even my eye makeup! It contains flower extracts and no alcohol, so it’s great for even the most sensitive skin.”
Why She Loves It: “This mask is great for sensitive and oily skin. It exfoliates the skin with salicylic acid, but because it features thermal spring water and the anti-inflammatory bisabolol, it won’t irritate sensitive skin.”
