As someone with a pretty big sweet tooth, the last thing I want to hear is “you are what you eat,” especially when it’s coming from Shereene Idriss, MD, an NY dermatologist. Now she’s not just any dermatologist, she’s an expert in facial rejuvenation and has garnered a following for her minimally invasive approach to cosmetic dermatology. Not to mention she’s also the brains behind #pillowtalkderm, a Sunday night Instagram series where she lies in bed answering questions from her followers on everything from laser treatments to Botox and fillers. (She’s even managed to get special guests like Emily Ratajkowski, Gucci Westman, and Ashley Graham to join in on the fun.)
I was instantly drawn to Idriss for her fun, snarky humor and ability to make skincare less intimidating. (She’s even candid about her own struggles with hyperpigmentation and breakouts.) She doesn’t just push expensive products or treatments on her clients—she wants to educate them on everything from the ingredients to use and avoid and which skin myths are not worth buying into, like the higher the SPF, the better.
