I Had a Dermatologist Critique My Skincare Routine, and I Learned a Lot
As a beauty editor, I've tried countless skincare products, written extensively on complexion-enhancing ingredients, and interviewed what seems like an entire hospital's worth of doctors on what's best for the body's largest organ. I consider myself more of a skincare expert than the average beauty-lover but have wondered if my extensive skincare routine was missing any major steps or I was making any major mistakes.
I reached out to dermatologist Dr. Dhaval Bhanusali, MD, to critique my regimen and let me know if I was making any major errors. After outlining for Dr. Bhanusali my routine of cleansers, toners, AHAs, retinol, and, of course, plenty of moisturizer and SPF, his responses were surprising.
