How A Top Dermatologist Would Spend $100 On Beauty Products

People in the beauty industry get tons of goods to test out, so when someone spends their own money on something that they’ve run out of, you know it’s good. In this series, we give beauty buffs $100 and ask them how they’d spend it on the best-of-the-best cosmetics from around the internet. 

Whether she’s treating a blemish with cortisone or conducting basal cell carcinoma surgery—aka removing a common form of skin cancer—Mona Gohara, MD, a dermatologist in Danbury, Connecticut, does it in a badass #OOTD.

She’s a vitamin C–loving SPF aficionado who treats patients at her practice and teaches skin health as an associate clinical professor at Yale University’s Department of Dermatology. Despite her daily fight to “kick cancer’s ass,” she still makes time to hang out with her two sons, all while keeping her shoe game on point.

Take a scroll through her Instagram and you’ll see that Dr. Gohara doesn’t skimp on the good stuff (her belt collection alone totals more than the pennies in my savings account). So, knowing her good taste and knowledge of all things skincare, it made me wonder what beauty products she buys and uses on herself.

I put Dr. Gohara on a spending spree to see what skin-loving items she would purchase with a $100 budget (to be fair: the total actually rang up to $102, but I found a $2 off coupon on Walgreen’s website that’s good for the month of December, so it really all evens out in the end). Because when it comes to skincare, my motto is: Do as derms do.
