We spend a great deal of time and money caring for the skin on our face. It is people's first impression of us. That being said, there are other areas of our skin that deserve the same special treatment that we typically reserve for just our faceI would like to introduce you to your skin’s VIP (aka, the very important parts).
All these areas work hard for you and you should work just as hard for all of them. They should get the same love and attention as your face. But I have good news! There is no need to buy separate products for each area. Instead, just remember to give your VIP the same great protection, products, and even procedures as you would your face. Simply incorporate these steps into your home skin care routine.

90% to 95% of skin cancer and signs of aging come from sun exposure. To protect yourself from harmful UV rays, it is critical to always wear sunscreen.
Day treatment like Antioxidants including vitamin C, also provide your skin with protection from UV rays, prevent the break down of collagenwhile simultaneously lightening sun spots.
Night treatments like glycolic acid, tretinoin, retinol and bakuchiol work to correct the damage caused by the sun through cell turnover.
Other ways you can protect your VIP include re-applying with powder sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, fashionable hats and coverups, and supplements such as Heliocare, ISDIN pills, and Hum Nutrition Turn Back Time. There are also a number of procedures I perform as a dermatologist including fractionated resurfacing, intense pulsed light therapy (IPL), EmSculpt, neuromodulators( Botox, Daxxify, Dysport) and Sculptra off the face to keep patients looking great everywhere.
