Ava Shamban, MD
Shamban is based out of Santa Monica and has an enviable list of celebrity clients, not surprising with her living so close to Hollywood.

Fredric Brandt, MD
Doctor to Madonna, Brandt’s advice to clients to prevent sagging skin is to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen each and every day. You should be aiming for an SPF of at least 30 and use it generously every day. Don’t know about you but I don’t want saggy skin – pass me the Factor 30 now!
Howard Murad, MD
Kim Cattrall of Sex in the City fame is one of Murad’s clients and don’t you think she always looks great? – a sure sign he knows what he is talking about! His advice is actually pretty basic which is great for us because it means we can try it at home! He advises clients to keep their skin hydrated by eating fruits and vegetables with a high water content. Try the likes of celery, cucumbers, mangoes and apricots as they are full of important nutrients, but also help keep your skin healthy, says Murad.
Harold Lancer, MD
With Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian among his clients, we want to know what this man has to say! So here it is, he recommends you should stay away from toners and benzoyl peroxide as these items can really dry out your skin, which strips it of the oils it needs to keep bacteria from getting in your pores and causing blemishes. As an alternative, he suggests using an oil absorbing product to help prevent spots and pimples and keep your skin looking beautiful and healthy.
