Cohost Dr. Tom McGovern talks about his day job as a practicing dermatologist. He shares why he chose the specialty, the most rewarding and most difficult aspects of his work, how his faith guides him in his work, and some basic advice for everyday skin concerns.

Top 3 Take-Aways for Skin Care:
1. Stay out of the sun.
2. If you want to keep your skin moisturized, the best thing is to take warm showers (not hot), use a moisturizer with ceramides or alpha hydroxy acids.
3. Don’t use too much soap! The only areas that need it are hairy or oily parts.
