Passion for skin
January 15, 2017
I have worked with my Dermatologist for 11 years and have grown a huge passion for skin health. I love it! I feel we all need the right tools and education for our skin. Cosmeceutical company's can publish what ever they want and we the consumer believe it and buy it. I have that drawer that's filled with products that just didn't work. Did you know there are four main essential products needed:
Cleanser (can be gentle, can be glycolic, a serum preferable with Vitamin C and then a night time cream with an AHA (Alphy Hydroxy Acid) and the most important SPF. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide being most important ingredient and SPF between 30 to 50. Anything over 50 is a sales gimmic! I also love a yearly session of lunchtime chemical peels! Be bright and tight and feel great in your skin. I suffered with acne till my mid 20's until I took Accutane and found my cure! and ever since then I payed more attention to myself. I think we forget about our self sometimes.
