While discussing the trend of DIY cosmetics, dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra warns about the dangers of some at-home treatments, procedures, and products and shares how to take your beauty game safely into your own hands.
“Please do not go on these DIY channels and think it looks easy.” she warns, noting the expense associated with seeing a trained and licensed practitioner for treatments, but stresses, “It is worth it. This is your face. This is your sight. These are your blood vessels."
Some treatments Dr. Batra recommends to do at home that can be safe and effective are:
* This exfoliating facial peel, with 30 percent alpha hydroxy acid, has over 8,000 reviews.
* This highly rated glycolic acid face peel claims to help stimulate collagen production, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
Topical Applications of Hyaluronic Acids
* This hyaluronic acid serum has a whopping 16,000 reviews and says it will "improve skin texture and brightness with intense moisture and balance" and also "diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles."
* This serum claims to "moisturizes skin instantly for visibly plumped skin and reduced wrinkles to reveal visibly glowing skin and an even complexion," and is also highly rated and affordable.
Dr. Batra stresses to only buy from vetted websites and retailers. Some additional trusted websites to get at-home beauty products are:
*As always, spot test any new beauty product and speak to your doctor or dermatologist if you have concerns or questions about a skincare product or treatment.
