  • Strangely enough, many people don't have a good skin care program. I wish all my patients would start a good skin care program appropriate for their skin type and stick to it!
  • One of the biggest challenges I encounter in my practice are patients who cannot resist the temptation to not pick at their face.
  • Also, I encourage my patients to resist buying skin care products without understanding the ingredients or because they enjoy the smell of the product.
