Annie Chiu, MD discusses cosmeceuticals with DermTube Journal Club Host Josh Zeichner, MD. Acknowledging that the market can be overwhelming for physicians and patients to keep up with, Dr. Chiu says it's important to educate patients about the need for a good sunscreen, retinoid, antioxidant, alpha hydroxy acids, and then specialty ingredients, such as growth factors and anti-redness products.

Chiu and Zeichner also talk about options for the neck, chest, and hands.
