Dr. Shari Marchbein
Shari Marchbein, MD, FAAD, is a New York City-based dermatologist and clinical assistant professor of dermatology at the NYU School of Medicine.
Morning: Dr. Marchbein uses the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Facial Cleanser For Sensitive Skin ($5) to wash her face every morning. "[I] use lukewarm water, not hot, so as to not strip the skin of moisture and pat the skin gently afterward to dry it," she said.
She uses two serums: the SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF With Ferulic Acid ($166) and the SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier ($100). "Hyaluronic acid serums are key in the wintertime since [the ingredient] is a humectant, which attracts and binds to water molecules and increases the water content of the skin," said Dr. Marchbein.
For SPF, she uses the Alastin HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36 ($55) which has a light tint.
Evening: After cleansing with her Neutrogena cleanser again, she uses the SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense ($98) to help with hyperpigmentation. "I also apply peptides for my eyelids and face at night to help boost production of collagen and elastin, which improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles," said Dr. Marchbein. Her two go-tos are the Skinbetter Science InterFuse Treatment Cream Eye ($105) and Alastin Restorative Skin Complex ($194).
To apply her prescription retinol, she uses the "sandwich technique," which involves layering a moisturizing product first, then retinol, followed by another moisturizing product. To do this, she ends with the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream ($19).
