What good is your skin if you are not caring for it? While unfortunately there is no “magic cream” on the market, there are steps to take using products to supplement what filler and surgery cannot do that aid in anti-aging as well! Understanding what products are right for you to address your specific skin concerns is half the battle. You do not have to pay millions for good skin, but you should invest in it. Eye creams, night creams, retinol/ retinoids, exfoliators, serums, and vitamin C are just basics in a good, everyday skincare regimen. No need to overcomplicate caring for your skin, we are here to help!
What products do I need for my skincare regimen?
When developing your anti-aging skincare regimen, we always start with the four core items which include a vitamin c serum, retinol, sunscreen, and eye cream. If you have these core four products, you are set to look your best to maintain and prolong your youthful glow! Areas of concern, unique skin types and conditions may be addressed with different products. This can be discussed with Dr. Lewen during your consultation!
What is a vitamin c serum?
Vitamin C serums are a holy grail in skincare that offer a multitude of benefits. Our favorites are Skinceuticals Phloretin and Skinceuticals CE Ferulic! These are both top of the line providing benefit to your skin by delivering environmental protection, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and loss of firmness while brightening the skin’s complexion.
What is the difference between medical grade skincare and over the counter skincare?
As in most retail, you get what you pay for. While not every medical grade skincare product trump over the counter products, there are some that you should not skimp on. Medical grade skincare products are often more potent in specific ingredients that are not approved to be sold in retailers and are considered more of a “prescription” product. Medical grade skincare products are also scientifically tested and approved to show benefit, while other products sold elsewhere just claim to be.
