10 ways your dermatologist wants you to treat your skin better
1. Avoid the sun
We know we can’t all be like Kimmy Schmidt and live in a bunker without sun damage but you can always load up on sunscreen to keep your skin free of sun damage.
Get sunscreen with at least SPF50 and UVA AND UVB protection. Remember also to reapply sunscreen after being out in the sun.

2. Layer your skincare products from thinnest to thickest for more efficiency
If you’re on the Korean 11-step beauty program that includes everything from toner to essence and serum, start your skincare routine from the product that has the thinnest viscosity and work your way up.
This ensures the best and highest absorption rate.
Over time, your skin loses its ability to maintain its own natural moisture so make it a point to stay away from over washing your skin and drying it out even further. Stay away from products with alcohol too.
