Anastasia Shakhbazova is a 2nd year medical student at the University of California, Riverside. She graduated from the University of California, Riverside in 2018 with a degree in biology and a minor in psychology. Anastasia has developed a strong interest in dermatology since learning that a person’s skin can often show signs of other underlying problems. In addition, she also likes that providing treatment for skin conditions gives an opportunity to increase the patient’s overall well-being and self-esteem. She believes that eating a well-balanced diet, staying hydrated, getting exercise, and having proper sleep hygiene can contribute to a healthier body and mind, which can all result in more youthful skin.
