You really want great skin. You want the glow and brightness of youth along with tight pores and a soft, supple feeling. Where do you begin? You’re in Costco and grab a three pack of cleanser that says “gentle” on the packaging. You grab a serum that says “Vitamin C.” But will they provide the results you really want? We consumers are inundated with advertising for the latest, greatest skin care brands and products. We are lured by cheap pricing and package deals. We are exposed to so much advertising that when it comes to our own skin, we may not know where to begin. No matter what skin type you have, this series of blog posts are designed to help you get on a better track and guide you forward into healthier, more radiant skin.
Facial cleansing may be the single most important step in your skin care routine. Yet, a surprising number of us don’t give a thought to grabbing the hubby’s deodorant soap and scrub-a-dub our way to sensitivities, compaction and dullness. Cleansing with an appropriate cleanser will restore the health of your skin’s barrier system. This, in turn, will allow further penetration of your serums and moisturizers. It will give you radiance. It is an investment that cannot be overlooked.

When a recommendation is made, it is made for a reason : to get your skin to the place you wish it to be as soon as possible. We work with a few highly regarded lines and using our years of professional experience, can customize a system to help you reach your goals. This takes the guesswork out of the skin care buying process for you. And, in the long run will save you much time and even money. Patients who comply with professional recommendations have a much greater rate of exceptional results. You are getting professional treatments, so why settle for over the counter products that have much lower percentages of active ingredients, more unnecessary fillers and are often much harsher on your skin? Why not trust your skin care professional to guide you?
As you are being treated, whether it be for regular facials, injectables or laser treatments, it is imperative to keep your skin healthy at home. A twice a day ritual is imperative. Our skin excretes oils at night, which morning cleansing removes from the surface, allowing deeper penetration of your morning products. These oils become useless to our skin once they are excreted and instead act as barriers and can become encrusted, resulting in dry, compacted skin if allowed to accumulate. Nighttime cleansing removes environmental grime and since the body does the bulk of its healing at night, provides a fresh, clean palette upon which to apply your healing and treating serums and moisturizer.
