Ace Your Next Dermatology Appointment

Go bare.

If you’re used to wearing makeup all the time, the thought of going out without it might send you into a state of mild panic. But on the day of your appointment, go with no makeup. It’s so much easier for the dermatologist to see what’s going on with your skin. Remember, the dermatologist and staff aren’t going to be judging your makeup-less face.

Also, don’t load your face up with moisturizing cream, douse yourself with astringent, or scrub like crazy at your face. The morning of your appointment, a simple wash with a gentle cleanser is all that’s needed to prepare your skin.
