I recommend the following hacks and products

Hyaluronic acid

Winter mostly comes with cracked skin probably due to increased water loss from the body. However, you can counter the loss by using hyaluronic acid products. The ingredients hydrates by holding onto moisture. I usually recommend products like Ordinary serum, which contains hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5. You can also use Farmacy Filling Good Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum to get plump, smooth, and brighter complexion.

Retinol treatment

Retinol is a great ingredient for developing collagen and limiting photoaging. I tell my clients to buy options, including Brands from Dermalogica and SkinCeuticals, which provide products that help work your skin through its 30’s and 40’s, giving it strength and shape.

The work of a family doctor includes a wide range of clinical diversity, which requires extensive knowledge and erudition from a specialist. However, I believe that the most important thing for a family doctor is to be human because the cooperation and understanding between the doctor and the patient are crucial in ensuring successful health care. On my days off, I love being in nature. Since childhood, I have been passionate about playing chess and tennis. Whenever I have time off, I enjoy traveling around the world.
