A Cosmetologist Reveals The Products She Uses On Her Own Skin

March 15, 2017 |

You set out to look for the set of cosmetic products best suited to your skin and it is easy to get overwhelmed by the numerous brands and ranges available in the market. Sometimes the messages on the products seem to contradict each other, leaving you more baffled. So, we thought of a way to ease that dilemma for you, ladies! We have compiled a brief index of the favorite products the well-known cosmetologist Dr. Sonia Oberoi chooses for her flawless complexion and radiant skin. Read on for a sneak-peek into her beauty regime:

AM routine:

Face-wash: Dr. Sonia starts her day with the ideal white face wash by Vichy.Asian women strive with Hyperpigmentation, dull complexion and sensitive skin. It is great for sensitive skin since Ideal White range employs metabolic whitening with powerful active ingredients that work in harmony with each other to the three dimensional fairness- flawless, luminous and radiant skin. Vichy combines ceramide white and LHA for double corrective whitening in a foaming cream.

Face serum: Serum is a skincare product that you should apply to your skin right after cleansing but before moisturizing. This way powerful ingredients are directly delivered into the skin. Serum is made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of active ingredients. This makes them a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles and dull skin with dark spots. The C-Vit serum by Sesderma is Dr. Sonia’s pick. It promotes an even, luminous glow and a brighter complexion while minimizing the appearance of fine lines, smoothing crow’s feet, and brightening dark circles.

Moisturizer: Making sure to moisturize your skin after the serum routine is important. Ossential® Daily Power Defense by Zein Obagi moisturizer works well for Dr. Sonia. Being an essential daily power defense with enzymes that speed up DNA repair it provides antioxidant protection to combat free radical damage. It helps tighten and firm the skin while promoting skin health. It also helps support skin’s natural mechanism to repair damage and protect against future skin damage.

Sunscreen: Dr. Sonia chooses the Anthelios xl ultra-light fluid sunscreen which offers a 50+ SPF protection. It is fragrance-free, paraben-free, water resistant and non-comedogenic. Very high, broad, photostable UVA/UVB protection. Ultra-light texture: fluid, non-greasy, imperceptible with an invisible finish.


PM routine

Make-up remover: Dr. Sonia begins her special care routine at the end of the day with the Vichy 3 in 1 one make-up remover. It is lightweight, with a milky texture and leaves skin feeling cleansed. It can be used with or without water. Being soap-free and alcohol-free, it is suitable for sensitive skin.

Night routine facewash: Once the make-up if off, the Dr. Sonia treats her face to her favorite Vichy Ideal White facewash again before she prepares her skin for the night.


Under eye cream: Dr. Sonia has found that this is a part of the skin-care routine which many neglect. Her choice is the LiftActiv Retinol HA Concentrate from Vichy. It has the highest concentration of Retinol, in a daily wrinkle-filler treatment and visibly fills deep wrinkles to plump skin for younger-looking facial expressions.

Face serum for the night: The face needs something to aid it as it repairs, revitalizes, rejuvenates and rebuilds skin tissue as you rest at night. Dr. Sonia uses the Vitamin C serum by Glo Blanc Steerpeau, which is available at her own Akss clinic. It works to provide the essential DNA repair formula to the skin. Alternately, she also recommends the use of the AC Glycolic Serum by Sesderma, with antioxidant properties (thanks to ergothioneine and vitamins C + E encapsulated in liposomes), regenerating properties (plant stem cells due to Eryngium maritimun) and soothing and moisturizing properties (from boswellic acid, hyaluronic acid, soy extracts)

 Lip care: Last but not the least is the essential lip care before you hit the bed, ensuring they are ready for your radiant smile the next morning. Dr. Sonia’s Aqualia Thermelia by Vichy does wonders to keep her lips moisturized and supple, allowing the skin to relax.



Exfoliation: While exfoliation and scrubs are important, Dr. Sonia says once in 15 days should be a good time lapse to remove dead skin, allowing for new skin growth and radiance.

You know what the essentials are, what not to neglect and how to keep your skin-care routine easy enough to follow faithfully. After all, even a cosmetologist has a few favorites and we can see how that makes a difference!
