Our Vanguard physicians spend their days helping patients with their skin. But, how do they maintain their skin?
Here is a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the daily skincare practices of three Vanguard doctors. Ranging from medical grade skincare products to over-the-counter products, here are their top picks.
Dr. Vinh Chung, Mohs Surgeon
Vanguard Co-founder, Board-certified Dermatologist, and Fellowship-trained Mohs Surgeon, Dr. Chung, has treated patients with various skin conditions, concerns, and unique requirements. He himself is a sensitive skin patient, and therefor favors products that are as effective in protecting his skin as they are gentle in their delivery.
For this reason, Dr. Chung’s daily skincare regimen includes the following items.
- EltaMD UV Clear. As he shares, “It’s the primary sunscreen that I use. I have sensitive skin and rosacea, and I also hate the feeling of heavy products. This sunscreen is lightweight, provides physical protection, and supplies SPF 46 coverage.”
Dr. Maria Sheron, Dermatologist
Dr. Sheron is a Board-certified Dermatologist who specializes in both medical and surgical dermatology. She has spent years working directly with her patients to develop skincare regimens that work well for their needs.
Dr. Sheron’s favorite products are as follows:
- EltaMD Physical Sunscreen: This is her pick for daily sun protection. As Dr. Sheron says, “This is a physical sunscreen that contains niacinamide, so it is great for sensitive skin and also contains a slight tint. It does not contain chemical sunscreen. It is cosmetically very elegant and does not leave your skin looking ‘chalky’ or leave a white film.”
- Cerave Cream: Following application of her favorite sunscreen, Dr. Sheron them applies her go-to moisturizer. In her words, “This is a hydrating cream that does not feel heavy. This cream contains ceramides which help with barrier function and is very helpful in our dry climate. Cerave products are also fairly hypoallergenic.”
