7 Feel-Fab Tips From a Pro
Live happy and healthy
We asked Yale dermatologist Lisa Donofrio, MD—a member of our Expert Network—to share her own stay-healthy moves.
"To keep my skin supple, I eat healthy fats, like olive oil and avocados."
Mind the mat
"I do a lot of yoga. It makes me breathe and stretch, and it builds strength. It makes my skin look amazing, too!”
Fix a fresh meal
"Cooking relaxes me. I’m a great vegetarian cook—cherry tomatoes are my favorite—and I make meals with rice and fresh veggies all the time. I love to cook for friends."
"I'm a huge believer in topical retinoids. I apply tretinoin or tazarotene to my skin nightly and use SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic serum every day to protect against free radical damage."
Fountain of youth
"I take resveratrol supplements twice a day. I think the science behind them—although new—is really good on their antiaging benefits."
Shimmer and shine
"My all-around pick-me-up is glitter! If I’m having a dull day, I put face glitter on my eyelids and it improves my mood. Plus, when I do it at work, it makes my patients giggle."
"I have a lemon tree in every room in my home to give off oxygen and clean up the carbon dioxide.”
