Working in dermatology comes with it access to the best skin care products. I have tried numerous cleansers, lotions, sunscreens, and gadgets. Here are my favorites:
1) Obaji Gentle Cleanser- this is a great cleanser for sensitive to normal skin. It is effective at removing oil and other impurities without being overly drying. I use it twice daily.
2) Tretinoin (Obaji or Skin Medica) – every female who is not pregnant or breast-feeding should be using tretinoin as part of their regular regimen. It helps with acne as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Although you won’t notice anything overnight, since it is great at exfoliation and prevention of collagen breakdown, it is a great product for maintaining the integrity of your skin.
3) Total Defense and Repair SPF 34- Sunblock should be the first step of a skin care regimen every morning (even in the winter!). I like this sunblock because it is light and non-greasy. It has new technology that protects the skin from infrared rays, which is unique to this product. It offers broad spectrum protection and comes in tinted as well.
4) Colorscience Sunforgettable SPF 50 Brush- perfect for on the go sun protection. I use this in the mornings when I roll out of bed and run outside. I usually don’t have time to wash my face and apply sunblock, so this step takes about 5 seconds and adequately protects my skin from harmful rays.
I personally use all of these products regularly and hope you will enjoy them as much as I do! Visit our web site to purchase any these or our other great products!
