Morning:

SkinMedica's Facial Cleanser to wash and as a shaving lubricant," he explains. "I even have a mirror set up in the shower," he adds." data-reactid="81">Boston-based plastic surgeon Min Ahn prefers a no-frills routine when it comes to skin care and says he tries to be as simple and efficient as possible. "Most men don’t like complicated skin-care routines, and I feel the same, so in the shower, I use SkinMedica's Facial Cleanser to wash and as a shaving lubricant," he explains. "I even have a mirror set up in the shower," he adds.

SkinMedica Ultra Sheer, as he says it helps hydrate and trap in moisture from the shower without feeling greasy or heavy." data-reactid="82">Believe it or not, it only takes him 30 seconds to do the whole shebang and then it's straight on to moisturizer. Because his skin is on the oily side, Ahn likes a lightweight one; right now his favorite is SkinMedica Ultra Sheer, as he says it helps hydrate and trap in moisture from the shower without feeling greasy or heavy.

Night:

SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, a hyaluronic acid-based serum that soothes the skin and delivers immediate — and lasting — hydration. (Fun fact: I'm currently obsessed with this product, too.)" data-reactid="84">Unlike the aforementioned surgeons, Ahn follows the same exact routine at night as he does in the morning, which makes sense considering his skin-care M.O. However, for evenings when he's feeling a bit drier or dehydrated, he reaches for SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, a hyaluronic acid-based serum that soothes the skin and delivers immediate — and lasting — hydration. (Fun fact: I'm currently obsessed with this product, too.)

The extras:

Ahn says he strongly believes that surgeons should treat their bodies with the same care as professional athletes, which is why he makes sure to eat a diet rich in protein, leafy greens, and healthy carbs. (He also avoids sugars and processed foods as much as he can.) He takes probiotics for gut health, fish oil for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and Basis, a supplement he says came from the Harvard/MIT labs.

"It's a combination of two naturally occurring substances — nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene — that help with mitochondrial health, DNA repair, and many metabolic processes," he says.

Morning:

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser — a classic expert favorite — and follows with a low-oil sunscreen like Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion, which is weightless and never makes his skin appear greasy. And voilá — that's it." data-reactid="106">Darren Smith is another top doc with a bare-bones routine made up of core skin-care basics. Every morning, he washes his face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser — a classic expert favorite — and follows with a low-oil sunscreen like Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion, which is weightless and never makes his skin appear greasy. And voilá — that's it.

Night:

Neutrogena Hydroboost Serum, which is only $20 and chock-full of skin-loving ingredients like glycerin, water, and zinc." data-reactid="108">This one might throw you for a loop: Unlike his peers, Smith skips an evening moisturizer altogether. "I'm on the oily side, so after using the same Cetaphil face wash, I just use a 0.05-percent Retin-A every night before bed unless I'm on a beach vacation or otherwise expecting heavier-than-normal sun exposure," he explains. However, in cases when his complexion could use a tad more TLC than usual, he turns to Neutrogena Hydroboost Serum, which is only $20 and chock-full of skin-loving ingredients like glycerin, water, and zinc.

The Extras:

Cetaphil's Daily Advanced Lotion is his hydrator of choice and it costs only $10. Anyone else here for Smith's full drugstore routine?" data-reactid="110">While Smith chooses to forego a face moisturizer at night, he doesn't skimp when it comes to his body. Cetaphil's Daily Advanced Lotion is his hydrator of choice and it costs only $10. Anyone else here for Smith's full drugstore routine?
