My favorite moment from 2023 was receiving the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation Award
as an honoree. For me, it felt like a truly full circle moment as someone whose life has been skin health for over twenty years. I conduct annual skin cancer screening on all of my patients and have had the honor of helping many.
As an expert beauty consultant and leading dermatologist, I am constantly trying new products and doing my own research on the latest and greatest products. This year, I was impressed by the over-the-counter brand Beauty Pie’s Super Retinol
and Overnight Skin Perfector 2.0
. For medical grade skincare, I love the Alastin
skincare line. It can be found in most dermatology offices or ordered online. My favorite is their Restorative Eye Treatment.
I absolutely love caviar! There is a place in New York City called Number One Caviar Boutique
on Wall Street. They do a great job of giving back to the caviar community so that I can indulge without feeling guilty. As an animal lover and someone who cares about the environment, that’s important to me!
My favorite form of self-care has been taking a morning to myself each week to work out. I find it’s so important to prioritize exercise and movement. Thursday mornings are my me-time where I can pour back into myself so that I can better show up and be of service to others.
It’s always the Celine Open Back Cami
and Tulip Shortie
set from Journelle. I have it in the Noir
shades but would wear it in every color! It’s elevated, comfy, and sexy.
Happy New Year from Journelle! We can’t wait to find out what favorites the new year holds.
