“Being involved with educating the public and other physicians to the life-transforming power of skincare in its ability to rejuvenate and boost self-confidence is what I have found most inspiring in my work as a dermatologist. My key advice: Use a waterless vitamin C serum in the morning and All-Trans retinol at night to revive and restore the most youthful, healthy skin appearance possible.” - Dr. Tina Alster
