While many of our daily routines have been shaken up, there’s one we should give extra attention: our skin care routine.
We put together a list of our top-6 beauty essentials for your skin care process. Unlike the 20+ step routines you find on Instagram, we’ve selected medical-grade products that really pack a punch. After all, it’s not how much you put on but what you put on that matters.
- Before you put on any products, it’s important to remove all impurities, such as dirt, dead skin and makeup from your skin. Dr. Levine recommends Neocutis NEO CLEANSE Gentle Skin Cleanser. Your cleanser should be gentle on your skin and avoid ingredients like harsh sulfates, dyes and fragrances.
- There are many products on the market for this step. Since they all promise to “improve the appearance of wrinkles,” it can be tricky to select the right one. Dr. Levine trusts SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum to help enhance skin texture and tone, while reducing the appearance of fine lines.
- Our skin is constantly affected by various environmental factors, including blue light from our screens. SkinMedica’s LUMIVIVE™ System is clinically proven to provide a bio-barrier against blue light and other environmental aggressors from damaging the skin during the day. It also recharges the skin’s essential repair process overnight. While you may not be getting much time outside right now, it’s also important to make sunscreen part of your daily routine. SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen not only provides UV protection, but also blocks harmful infrared rays.
- To improve firmness and elasticity on her neck, Dr. Levine uses Neocutis BIO SERUM FIRM twice a day. It’s proprietary Human Growth Factors and Peptides formulation has been tested to show results in less than a week. While your skin care routine may be focused around your face and neck, don’t forget the rest of your body. Sagging skin around the knees and elbows show aging as much as facial wrinkles. To maintain firm skin around those areas and her chest, Dr. Levine uses Neocutis NEO FIRM.
Now that you have a plan, put it into action. Remember, your skin will represent you for a long time – it’s worth the investment!
