The Doctors: Dermatologist-Recommended Skin Care Routine
There are hundreds of products that claim to help you fight aging. Dermatologist Dr Sonia Batra let cameras inside her home to reveal what products she uses to take care of her skin. It was stated that Dr Batra wasn’t paid to promote any of the products, but instead just wanted to show viewers what products she trusts for quality skin care. She opened up her fridge to show salmon, berries, whole grains, and vegetables inside.
When she opened her medicine cabinet, she revealed an array of skin care products. In the morning, she starts with an antioxidant, and then uses a mineral sunscreen based with titanium or zinc. After a long day, she uses a moistened microfiber towel to remove her makeup and loves a double cleanse. She begins with an oil-based cleanser to get rid of any makeup left on her skin. She then uses a calming sulfur wash as a water-based cleanser. Two nights a week she uses a prescription retinoid and a peptide-based anti-aging serum on the other nights. She then finishes with a moisturizer and a prescription eyelash serum to aid in eyelash growth.
Dr Batra also recommended a silk pillowcase, because they tend to be the most gentle on her skin.
The Doctors: Padma Lakshmi Cranberry Drink For Weight Loss
Next, The Doctors explained that Padma Lakshmi revealed one of her diet secrets, something she refers to as “cranberry drano.” She claims drinking it helped her lose 15 pounds. Padma drinks a concoction 3-4 times a day that contains 100% cranberry juice, green tea, Emergen-C, and fiber powder.
The Doctors tend to hate the term “detox” because the truth is that your body tends to detox itself. Secondly, drinking the mixture 3-4 times a day is a lot of sugar depending on the kind of cranberry juice you use. Fiber can be beneficial but too much vitamin C can have a bit of a laxative effect. The truth is that real fruit has most of the same ingredients, so you’re likely better off eating some real fruit while drinking green tea.
