Renowned NYC Dermatologist Share Her Favorite Skin-Care Products For Anti-Aging
Shari Marchbein is a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at NYU’s School of Medicine. She’s also one of the countless dermatologists who struggle with both acne and eczema. “I have a combination of sensitive yet breakout-prone skin, so I tend to keep things really simple,” she says.
“The most important aspects for me [in the morning] are daily sunscreen with at least SPF 30 [and] an antioxidant vitamin C serum.”
Before these two steps, however, she cleanses her skin with a super gentle face wash, which right now is 𝗦𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗪𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗯𝗼𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗠𝗶𝗰𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗮𝗿 𝗚𝗲𝗹 𝗪𝗮𝘀𝗵. For free-radical protection, she relies on the 𝗦𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗖𝗲𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹𝘀 𝗣𝗵𝗹𝗼𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗻 𝗖𝗙, a vitamin-packed serum that protects the skin from environmental stressors. She then follows up with a moisturizer that contains sunscreen. Her two favorites are 𝗡𝗲𝘂𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗮 𝗛𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗵𝘆 𝗗𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗲 𝗦𝗣𝗙 𝟱𝟬 and 𝗘𝗹𝗶𝘇𝗮𝗯𝗲𝘁𝗵 𝗔𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝗣𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝗖𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗦𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝗦𝗣𝗙 𝟱𝟬, the latter of which also shields the skin from pollution.
As far as her nighttime routine goes, Marchbein likes to add in a prescription retinoid as well as an ultrahydrating moisturizer, followed by an occlusive product in certain areas that require extra TLC. “At night after a gentle cleansing, I apply 𝗥𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗻-𝗔 𝗠𝗶𝗰𝗿𝗼, which I really love, followed by a moisturizer, such as 𝗡𝗲𝘂𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗮 𝗛𝘆𝗱𝗿𝗼 𝗕𝗼𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗚𝗲𝗹 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗺 or 𝗦𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗪𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗕𝗼𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗦𝗸𝗶𝗻 𝗤𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗵 𝗦𝗹𝗲𝗲𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗺,” she says. “Then I apply either 𝗔𝗾𝘂𝗮𝗽𝗵𝗼𝗿 or 𝗩𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗲 ointment to my lips and eyelids because it helps seal in moisture in these thin skin areas that are prone to dryness and cracking.”
Marchbein also never forgets to give her body some love. For this, she turns to 𝗩𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝗖𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗖𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗘𝘅𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗗𝗿𝘆 𝗦𝗸𝗶𝗻 𝗥𝗲𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗿 𝗟𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 or 𝗖𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗩𝗲 𝗠𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘇𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗺, both of which she says contain ingredients like ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin to seal in hydration. “I also exclusively use Dove body washes; my favorite is the classic 𝗗𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗗𝗲𝗲𝗽 𝗠𝗼𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲,” she says. “Within 60 seconds of getting out of the shower, I apply a thick layer of moisturizer to maintain optimal hydration throughout the night.”
Two or three times a week, Marchbein likes to slough away dead skin cells using a physical exfoliant. “I gently scrub away the old skin with either the 𝗦𝘁. 𝗜𝘃𝗲𝘀 𝗥𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗦𝗸𝗶𝗻 𝗘𝘅𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗙𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝗦𝗰𝗿𝘂𝗯 or the 𝗡𝗲𝘂𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗮 𝗛𝘆𝗱𝗿𝗼 𝗕𝗼𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗘𝘅𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗲𝗿 to improve dull, flaky skin,” she says. “It makes an instant difference.”
