More Than Skin Deep


Very few people get approached on the golf course and in grocery stores to talk about skin. But very few people are as renowned as Dr. Ordon, co-host of the Emmy award-winning show The Doctors, and spokesperson for Derm Exclusive®, Beachbody’s professional-grade anti-aging skincare line. This month, Dr. Ordon chats about essential skincare habits and why it’s never too late to start a skincare regime.

In the quest for toned abs and a balanced diet, it’s easy to forget about the importance of skincare. That’s why Beachbody developed Derm Exclusive®, a comprehensive anti-aging skincare line, lauded by skincare professional, Dr. Andrew Ordon.

You want credentials? Dr. Ordon’s got them. He’s a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Professor of Plastic Surgery at Dartmouth Medical School, instructor at University of Southern California, and co-host of the Emmy award-winning show The Doctors.

Now, for the first time, from November 1-20th the Derm Exclusive Ultimate Kit seven-piece kit including: the Micro Peel Resurfacing Pads, Intensive Repair Serum, Collagen Lift, Fill & Freeze Wrinkle Treatment, Facial Cleanser, Age Defense Moisturizer SPF 30 and Volume Lip Therapy SPF 15, is only $99.95 —just in time for the holidays!

What sets Derm Exclusive apart from other skincare products, Dr. Ordon?
It’s comprehensive. The Derm Exclusive Ultimate Kit involves all facets of a complete skincare program: cleansing, moisturizing and, of course, the Derm Exclusive original:  Fill & Freeze®. You put that on and see results immediately.

What is the most common misconception about skincare?
One misconception about skin care is that it’s something for women that have already aged. That’s NOT true. Skin care is for both men and women and should start when we’re younger. That’s how you’ll prevent signs of aging. If you take care of your skin just like you take care of your car—if you maintain it—it’s going to keep on running.

How do you explain the benefits of Derm Exclusive and why it makes a great gift?
When somebody is thinking about getting started on a skincare regime it can be overwhelming. There are so many products out there. You hear a lot of big terms that you may not understand – exfoliation, microdermabrasion, polypeptides. So, an all-encompassing program like Derm Exclusive makes it much easier.

Everybody is interested in good skin care. And, for the holidays, you should give a gift that somebody could use to improve their appearance and quality of life.

What do you consider beautiful?
Beauty isn’t only skin deep. But the first thing anyone sees is your outer shell, and if you have bright vibrant, healthy looking skin, it makes a great first impression. Going further, I think age appropriate skin is beautiful. I have women coming in saying, “I’m 60. I want to look 20.” And then they try to get there with invasive things like lasers, peels, skin tightening, etc. I don’t think that is a healthy attitude. Your skin should look good or great for your age.

Besides Derm Exclusive, what else can we do to take better care of our skin?
Good skin starts from the inside out. Diet is important. And keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating things that will keep you hydrated like cucumbers.  They help you retain water to give you a fuller, healthier look in the face.

Any celebrity beauty tips and tricks to share?
We get a lot of celebrities on our show. They swear by things like getting enough sleep, exercise and water. Another old Hollywood trick that’s been passed down is putting cold green or brown tea bags on your eyes. Something that’s good for you on the inside is probably good for your skin on the outside!

Any other last thoughts about Derm Exclusive and skin care?
Protect your skin from the sun. That’s the single biggest thing you can do. Use a moisturizer with SPF, wear a hat and sunglasses, get to know your moles, and have your skin checked for cancer once a year. Take control of your skin health and get yourself involved in a basic skincare program. Derm Exclusive makes it easy for you. If you don’t know where to go with your skin care, this is the answer.
