Beauty Shopping in New York City – dermatologists tips

You know that the beauty shopping tips in New York are something strong here on the blog and on the YouTube channel, right? So, when Naiana Sá talked to me to write a post with cosmetic tips to buy in the city, I had no doubt that it would be great. Why? Because she’s a dermatologist! I had the opportunity to work with her when I lived in Brazil and I thought it very interesting to bring to the blog the tips from a professional. Hope you like it! For each product, I suggest the store where to buy it – and for those who want to buy from Amazon, just click on the name of each product.

“I’m Naiana, a dermatologist and passionate about traveling. So, I always try to unite tourism in search of new things for my skin! I asked Laura to write about products that I usually recommend buying in the United States. based on my experience, congresses and shopping. With the help of my super partner, Marina Guerini, also a dermatologist, we have listed some cosmetics, creams and makeup that are worth the investment.

Who, like me, does not LOVE entering a drugstore and/or supermarkets with that huge selection of cosmetics? But … among so many options, what to buy? Do not forget: consult your dermatologist before using / buying any product. Check the composition, make sure you are not allergic to any component. Pregnant women and infants should be given extra attention – several American products have retinoids and salicylic acid, which are prohibited in these cases. In addition to the risk of allergic reactions, the purchased product may not be perfect for your skin, so nothing better than a dermatologist to make the indication more suitable for you.

Retinol Correxion, RoC – this collection has products for day, night, eyes and face. Found easily, it is a great anti-aging and moisturizing choice. Lightweight cosmetic, retinol in the composition that is an active that reduces fine lines and promotes improvement in the skin and texture of the skin. Great value for money, around $16 each product. WATCH OUT! It can not be used by pregnant women and can cause skin reactions! $20 on average.

Maquiagens – Surely everyone here already has a list of favorite makeup products. Therefore, I have tried to mention only those products that are suitable for specific skin types or that have sunscreen. Makeup for oily skin is always a challenge.
