The 3 Ingredients That Dermatologists Would Absolutely Never Put on Their Skin
I like to strategically copy certain people in different ways for different things. I’ve adopted the vintage oversized blazer look, thanks to Mary Kate and Ashley. I try to copy (key word: try) the perfectly messy hairstyles of French women. And I pretty much try to copy everything that dermatologists do to their skin.
In my quest to cure myself from hoarding every single active ingredient that’s good for my skin in my personal beauty cabinet, I decided to tap the skin gurus’ brains and ask: What ingredients would you actually never use on your own skin?
