Dermatologist Spotlight:

Dr. Ashley Cavalier, board-certified Dermatologist and Founder of Atlantic Shore Dermatology, a Forefront Dermatology Practice in St. Simon’s Island, Waycross, and St. Marys, Georgia. She has over 20 years of experience and specializes in medical and aesthetic dermatology.

Dr. Ashley Cavalier’s Daily Skincare Routine: 

I have sensitive skin and prone to rosacea and age spots. I start out with an exfoliating cleanser or rosacea medicated cleanser, depending how my skin is doing. I then apply a gentle moisturizer to the sensitive skin zone, which is the central area of your face. I follow that up with a brightening serum around the eyes and an age spot-correcting serum followed by exfoliating lotion to the outer face. In the morning, I always make sure to apply sunscreen prior to my makeup and before bed I apply a hydrating face cream to last me through the night.

Dr. Ashley Cavalier’s Insider Secret!

My insider secret is to use a gentle hydrating moisturizer to the sensitive skin zone of the central face, and then you can use more aggressive, anti-aging products to the more resilient outer face. The outer face also tends to be where most wrinkles and age spots are located, too!
