Have you found yourself envying your dermatologist’s uniform and luminous complexion? Have you ever wondered what their skincare routine would be? I bet you did. Every day, a new technique, ingredient, or product appears… So, if you ask them the secret to achieving perfect skin, they will probably give all the credit to a cleanser, a moisturizer or a new sunscreen. Don’t be fooled. Dermatologists keep a lot of other little tricks to ward off acne, close pores, smooth out wrinkles, and erase blemishes to themselves.
From antioxidants to green tea, Zaftyg has created a guide with the thirteen most useful skin care tips that many international dermatologists have learned throughout their careers. Read more!
Use a product that optimizes the skin barrier and contains anti-inflammatory ingredients. This step will help to reduce chronic inflammation induced by ultraviolet light and pollution. If you have sensitive skin, avoid applying products that are too aggressive and abrasive, which damage the skin’s natural barrier.
From the thinnest to the thickest
The products present in your skincare routine should be applied from the thinnest to the thickest – in layers – as this step helps the skin to absorb each step more effectively.
One of the number one skincare tips is to drink green juice every day. In addition to being a great substitute for coffee, ingredients such as avocado help to oxygenate the skin and stimulate lymphatic drainage, since they provide the skin with healthy fats and phytonutrients to hydrate it from the inside out. In a matter of days, you will see very significant improvements.
Ginseng – when applied topically – is one of the favorite beauty tips of most dermatologists. Why? This ingredient stimulates blood flow promoting a healthy, firm and bright appearance of the skin. Invest in a formula that, in addition to ginseng, contains hyaluronic acid in its composition.
Use targeted exfoliants
When choosing a scrubbing product, check if it has AHAs and BHAs in its formula. These components are popular in dermatology clinics, but can (and should) also be used at home. The result? A more luminous, radiant and uniform skin – since AHAs help to “loosen” the most stubborn dead cells on the skin’s surface that “clog” pores, while BHAs penetrate them to dissolve sebum and combat the potential appearance of acne.
Invest in a premium moisturiser
Moisturizers help to strengthen the skin barrier by providing lipids, protecting it from external chemicals and providing water to our skin. Invest in a good one.
Wash your face with chamomile and rosemary
One of the best skincare tips revealed by many experts
to cure/improve problems like eczema, or dry and sensitive skin is in two natural ingredients: chamomile and rosemary. In a pot, boil a cup of chamomile tea leaves and a cup of rosemary for 15 minutes. Then strain, let it cool and rinse your face. This solution will not only soothe the skin but also fight blemishes and redness.
Peptides – yay!
When applied topically, certain peptides can reduce the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet. They work by increasing collagen production and forming a moisture barrier in the skin.
Get away from the foam
When choosing a cleanser, make sure that you choose one that does not make too much foam, since these products are more aggressive, can leave the skin dry, dehydrated and more prone to the appearance of pimples and other imperfections; they also eliminate the natural oil from the skin. According to experts, some of these products can even cause fine lines, wrinkles and sensitivity to the environment.
Three glasses of green tea per day promise to be the key to protecting and moisturizing your skin, from the inside out. In addition, several studies show that the compounds in green tea help prevent skin cancer and the destruction of collagen, which is the main cause of wrinkles and ageing.

Prioritize facial oils
Forget all the myths you’ve heard about facial oils. These products are great for cleaning and moisturizing your skin, preventing wrinkles and blemishes. Amazingly, most oils can (and should) be used even on the oiliest and most imperfect skin. Have questions? Know that these formulas balance and soothe the skin, giving it a natural and healthy glow and encouraging facial massage. The best of everything? Massaging the face has multiple benefits: it relaxes and tones the muscles, helps to sculpt the facial contour, soothes tension and promotes blood circulation.
Add an antioxidant to your routine
Antioxidant serums with vitamins C and E protect the skin against photoaging and increase the effectiveness of sunscreens according to dermatologists. In addition, antioxidants neutralize free radicals created by the sun, preventing the breakdown of collagen and discoloration of the complexion.
Retinoids before bed
It is more than proven that the application of formulas with retinoids increases the synthesis of collagen, decreases the degradation of collagen and improves the texture of the skin, making it more uniform and free of blemishes.
