Dr Doris Day is a trend-setting, leading dermatologist in New York City’s cosmetic dermatology field and a regular on television shows such as The View and Live with Kelly and Ryan. Her renowned skincare line, Doris Day MD Medical Skincare, is soon launching on TVSN.
To celebrate the upcoming launch, Dr Day held a press masterclass via Zoom from her upper east side apartment.
TVSN general manager Judy Deuchar kicked off the masterclass and said that Dr Day was “incredibly well trained in skincare” and “comes from a family that loves skincare”.
Dr Day, a mother of two and a specialist in laser, cosmetic, surgical and aesthetic dermatology, explained that she came from a “family of doctors” that were always focused on a holistic approach to beauty.
“I am a first generation American and come from a family of doctors,” she said. “My dad came from Iran and he taught me that health and appearance were very connected. You must take care of your skin and never underestimate the power of nutrition.”
After Dr Day first started her career as a medical writer after completing her master’s in journalism and science writing at New York University before earning her MD at Downstate Medical School in New York.
She completed her residency in dermatology at Cornell University College of Medicine, achieving the title of Chief Resident, before working as a formulator for some of the big multinational beauty brands.
“What I learnt is that ingredients make a difference to the skin, but formulas make an even bigger difference. This is why it has taken me 20 years to create something that I was happy to put my name on.”
Dr Day said she was “very excited to introduce my products into Australia” and that her product range was all about nourishing the skin.
“I’m not into over exfoliating the skin, I like to look at instead the best ways to nourish the skin,” she said.
“We need to provide the right building bocks to help the skin help itself better. I create my products to nourish, protect and enhance the skin, not irritate it.”
She is a member of many international organisations including the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, American Academy of Dermatology, Women’s Dermatologic Society, NY State Dermatology Society, New York Facial Plastic Surgery Society, and the American Honors Society of Dental and Facial Aesthetics.
She is the author of three books, Beyond Beautiful: Using the Power of Your Mind and Aesthetic Breakthroughs to Look Naturally Young and Radiant (Center Street/Hatchet Book Group Publishers), Forget the Facelift: Turn Back the Clock with Dr Day’s Revolutionary Four-Step Program for Ageless Skin (Avery/Penguin Publishers), and 100 Questions and Answers about Acne (Jones and Bartle Publishers) and has completed a clinical monograph titled Understanding Hyperpigmentation.
