Nothing piques our curiosity quite like a dermatologist's personal skincare regimen, so when Well+Good tapped Connecticut-based dermatologist Mona Gohara, MD for her go-to products, we were all ears. The health publication describes her as a "vitamin-C loving, SPF aficionado," outside of her role as a board-certified dermatologist and associate clinical professor at Yale University's department of dermatology. Entrusting her good taste and professional acumen, they put her on a spending spree to see what beauty and skincare products she would buy.
Read up on Gohara's three skincare picks below:
1. First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask, $32
"I like to mask in the morning, so I'll brush my teeth and dry my hair while it's on to save time. I'm excited about this one because I haven't seen many vitamin C masks out there, and I'm a huge fan of the antioxidant. When it's infused into the skin, it wards off signs of ultraviolet light, making your complexion glowy, even-toned, and radiant."
"This body wash deposits moisture deep into the skin and replaces crucial lipids that you naturally lose in the shower."
3. Drunk Elephant Lippe Balm, $18
"I use this balm year-round, but I really slather it on when it's cold outside. Harsh winter air is particularly rough against your lips, so infusing them with hydration and moisture is key. The bonus: It doubles as a great, neutral lip gloss."
