28: How to uncomplicate your skin care routine | dermatologist Kavita Mariwalla, M.D.
Play • 55 min

“My skin care philosophy is about meeting the person where they are at that point in their life; What you can do as a 25-year-old and what you can do as a 30-year-old with a newborn are very different things,” says board certified dermatologist Kavita Mariwalla, M.D. “It’s not about if you theoretically should use a 10-step routine, because if you can only manage two-steps why are we talking about the other eight? It’s about being practical.” In this episode of Clean Beauty School, beauty director & host Alexandra Engler talks with Mariwalla about the problems with overcomplicating our skin care routines, what you actually should be doing daily, and busting some social media beauty trends.
