6 Skincare Rules This Dermatologist ALWAYS Follows + Skin Smoothie recipe

I love rules. Structure gives me discipline. And I find that patients love it too. Oh, the relief to be given an explicit list of things you should use and practices you should adopt. I think it’s the key to developing a happy-making, long-term approach to your skin.

So this got me thinking about the most important essential behaviors in my own personal skincare routine. The practices that persist throughout the year, wherever I may be. The real cornerstone that would give me the best skin possible with the fewest actions. I may write them on a tablet somewhere for posterity.

These are mine:

  1. Always cleanse at night
  2. Always protect skin from the sun
  3. Always leave blemishes alone
  4. Always use a retinoid
  5. Always sleep on your back
  6. Always eat good fats

Skin Smoothie recipe


  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 1 handful fresh kale leaves, thick stems removed 1 banana, peeled, sliced and frozen
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger


Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, add extra almond milk to thin. Serve immediately, garnished with extra chia seeds if desired.
