Have you always had a good relationship with your skin?

This has changed over the years. I’m from Miami, where we have about a season. When I moved to New York it took me a little while to figure out how to take care of my skin in the winter. I needed more moisturizer, several times a day, and started sleeping with a humidifier.

How do you encourage other women to be confident in their skin?

We forget that our words are powerful. The reality is, they can hurt us. So when people feel better, I encourage them to remember who they are by writing it down, because we all forget how amazing we are. You aren’t always going to feel confident or worth it, so in these good times, set up protocols that you can come back to when you’re feeling down.

Are there any products, for skin or makeup, that you always rely on when teaching?

bareMinerals Tinted Moisturizing Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Gel-Cream in Terra ($ 33; sephora .com). It doesn’t make me feel like I’m wearing a lot of makeup or clogging my pores. I use more cream-based makeup instead of powders because I find it doesn’t create streaks on my face.

Have you always had a good relationship with your skin?

In high school, I took Accutane because I had terrible acne. It’s something I’ve always been sensitive to, emotionally. I did a couple of sets of Accutane and it helped my skin a lot, but I’m horrified at what it was potentially doing to my young, pubescent body at the time, so I don’t like to think about it.

Was there a time when you started to put a lot of effort into your skin routine?

I moved to New York almost 10 years ago, and there’s a different kind of makeup culture here, where less is definitely more. So I started wearing a lot less makeup, and it absolutely helped my skin. I also took the use of better formulated products seriously. [Bosworth likes makeup from Ilia and Kosas.]

How do diet and exercise play a role in maintaining healthy skin?

I eat a lot of raw vegetables, I have a salad almost every day of the week. I put protein in it, but the base is raw vegetables. It helps me increase my fiber intake. For me, it’s about eating clean, healthy ingredients. And water! I drink at least 90 ounces of water every day. For exercise, I love the class, I am a fan of Taryn Toomey. I do this at least four times a week. It is a very holistic meditation practice and I think stress reduction gives me skin benefits.

Founder and CEO of the eponymous brand and facialist in Los Angeles (47).

Do you feel pressure because of your work to always have perfect skin? My melasma on my upper lip bothers me a lot because I’m like, “Why can’t I fix this? But otherwise, no. I take an oral prescription [tranexamic acid] for that right now, which has helped a lot, but nothing else has really worked. I have used both tretinoin and hydroquinone, a mixture of that, but I don’t really have any answers yet. It’s a journey.

What’s the number one skin care question your friends and family are asking you? How to fix their double chin or their jowls. If you’ve been dealing with this before, there isn’t a whole lot of non-surgical things you can do about it. I think it’s best to focus on preventative treatments as early as possible, such as vibration therapy and microcurrent. You want to get it before it happens. I use my facial shaping wand every day [Shani Darden Skin Care Facial Sculpting Wand ($399; sephora.com)]. Personally I use professional microcurrent on myself but if anyone needed home treatment I would say use the NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device ($ 339; mynuface.com).

AKA Dr. Pimple Popper, a dermatologist in Upland, Calif. (50).

You see people all the time going through a lot of things with their skin, which can take a toll on self-confidence. How to reassure them?

Dermatologists are like psychiatrists. We see a lot of things that can be life threatening, but we also see things that are not dangerous but still cause patients a lot of emotional and mental distress. Happiness is contagious, so for me to come in and be bright, happy, and positive, that goes a long way.

Are there any treatments or services that you swear by for your skin?

Botox, absolutely. It’s a fantastic treatment for so many reasons. It’s not surgery, there’s little to no downtime, the effects wear off, and it’s actually a preventative. You can avoid having deep creases, and there’s nothing else really like it.

Do you have a must-have product?

Eyelashes! I really like the Lilly Lashes Lite Mink False Lashes ($ 20; lillylashes.com). Being Asian, I don’t have long eyelashes, and I don’t have big eyes, so I can’t bear the weight of really, really big and long false eyelashes. But I really appreciate the wholeness they add. Some of the more delicate, like a light mink, look very natural.
