The Olay Ultra Moisture Shea Butter Body Wash ($7.99) cleanses while moisturizing at the same time, making it ideal for those with dry skin. Its creamy formula leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated, according to Allure. “It’s very luxurious, moisturizing, and nourishing, and a little goes a long way,” dermatologist Peterson Pierre told Byrdie. For a fragrance free option, the Cetaphil Ultra Gentle Body Wash ($27.99) is also ideal for those with dry skin, because it contains a moisturizing ingredient, glycerin, that draws water into the skin. People with sensitive skin will also benefit from this body wash because it is not irritating, and users report a lack of sticky residue after usage (via Byrdie).

“Though the study showed decent results, it’s fairly challenging to adhere to this regimen,” says dermatologist Peterson Pierre, M.D., of Pierre Skin Care Institute, who was not involved in the research study. “In fact, study participants had a hard time sticking to the schedule after the study was over in spite of good results.”

While the study showed evidence that facial exercises may improve facial appearance and reduce visible signs of aging, more studies are needed to discover how the exercises work and which ones are effective.

Some dermatologists believe facial exercises can actually cause more wrinkles. “We know that the more you use a muscle, the stronger it gets and the deeper the lines get,” Pierre says. “That’s the entire premise behind Botox [which restricts movement of facial muscles], [an injectable] wrinkle relaxer.”

Next, as a result of the pandemic, people are wearing masks which can allow them to heal from facial surgery and at the same time be covered up.
