The article includes Dr. Patel's expert commentary on why some natural beauty products using edible ingredients could be bad for your skin.
I like to strategically copy certain people in different ways for different things. I’ve adopted the vintage oversized blazer look, thanks to Mary Kate and Ashley. I try to copy (key word: try) the perfectly messy hairstyles of French women. And I pretty much try to copy everything that dermatologists do to their skin.

And with that, I come to you with insight to bring with you as you shop beauty shelves for your own regimen. Below, the three ingredients that derms wouldn’t put on their faces.
