My interview with top New York Dermatologist and Author of the book SKIN RULES ~ Debra Jaliman, M.D.

During May I thought it would be nice to talk about different products that you might enjoy trying as we move into summer and the warmer weather. I think most of us have fun experimenting with the new fun eye shadows and liners, bronzers, and the trending lip colors and textures of the season, but then I realized I was jumping a bit ahead of myself. What about the “canvas” that we apply these products to… our SKIN?

We needed to start with our skin and I knew just the right person I needed to speak with. That was, Debra Jaliman, M.D.who literally wrote the book on the topic at hand, SKIN RULES! If you haven’t read my 5~Star review of this fascinating “Must Have” book, please take a moment to do so:
(At the end of this article, there will be a picture of the book, and links where you will have an opportunity to purchase SKIN RULES, but first, I’d like to introduce you to Dr. Jaliman !)

Debra Jaliman, M.D.

(Information from Dr.Jaliman’s Bio)
Not only is Dr. Jaliman a world-renowned Board Certified Dermatologist with her private practice on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, but is also the spokesperson for the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). She has taught Dermatology at Mount Sinai for over 25 years.

One of the first physicians to use Botox in her practice, Dr. Jaliman’s office remains a national training center for Allergan, where physicians are guided on proper injection techniques. She is known for giving her clients a subtle and natural look when receiving Botox, and other injectables. Many famous faces in movies and television, as well as models who appear in top fashion magazines are clients of Dr.Jaliman, and she is also known for her expertise in treating skin cancer, rare skin disorders, and the more common skin problems as acne and rosacea.

As a leading skincare expert Dr.Jaliman has appeared on TV shows as 20/20, CBS News, CNN, Dateline, FOX News, Discovery Channel, Lifetime, NBC News, Oxygen, Primetime and more.

An authoritative source in dermatology, Dr. Jaliman is quoted frequently in the top national print publications including, Allure, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Fitness, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Ladies’ Home Journal, Lucky, More, Newsweek, O, The Oprah Magazine, Parents, Prevention, Shape, The New York Times, Vogue and more.

You can imagine my enthusiasm when my phone call was answered directly by Dr.Jaliman. We had a wonderful conversation before I asked her a couple of questions. I can only imagine what it would be like to be one of Dr. Jaliman’s patients. She is so personable and I felt like I was talking with someone I’d known for a long time.

After reading SKIN RULES, I told Dr. Jaliman that this should be a mandatory book to keep on hand in every household as it truly addresses just about every question a person might have about skin related issues in such an easy to read and enjoyable presentation.

I was really curious about why Dr. Jaliman chose Dermatology as her profession and she told me that she had experienced “sensitive acne-prone skin” problems and challenges while growing up. As a result she decided she might as well get into the field of Dermatology.

As a very dedicated believer in skin care and really trying via my articles to stress the importance of caring properly for one’s skin and not just covering the face with cosmetics, I asked Dr. Jaliman about seasonal changes and adjustments in a person’s skin care routine. I found this very interesting. Dr. Jaliman told me that you should use different products appropriate for the season, but not to wait till the season starts! For instance, regarding summer, start transitioning to a lighter weight cleanser and moisturizer in spring so your skin adapts to the change and you won’t have problems when summer arrives. The same would be true for winter. As we head thru fall start to switch to a cleanser and moisturizer that will be appropriate for the cooler weather.

I then inquired about Dr.Jaliman’s skincare products, JALIMAN MD™com PRESCRIPTIONS FOR SKIN. She actually created them and you’ll find quite a variety to choose from on her website:
As she mentioned earlier, Dr.Jaliman had experienced issues with her own sensitive acne- prone skin, and now has really put together a very nice choice of products for specific skin types. By going to “products” on the site, you can then go to “Skin Conditions” and see what would be appropriate for your type skin.

Make sure you read Dr. Jaliman’s “philosophy” section as well. You can see how she spent so much time and effort dedicating herself to creating solutions for the different skin types and needs, along with keeping the products up to date with the newest technology. There is also no testing done on animals!

So you see… You will be able to benefit from Dr. Jaliman’s expertise and care for your skin even if you do not reside in the New York area! There is also a phone number on the website that you can call if you have questions about products for your skin.

I can’t thank Dr. Jaliman enough for her time and wonderful information, and I send her ongoing wishes for all the best with her practice and book, SKIN RULES.
