A Few of My Favorite Products for 2010

Okay – I can’t help myself. I still love that ColoreScience powdered sunscreen (Sunforgettable SPF 30 – comes in tints) for anyone athletic (doesn’t drip into eyes), or oily, or who just needs double screening (history of skin cancer, melasma, or lots of sun damage).

I DO like the new TNS Essential Serum (by SkinMedica) which is a “double pump” combination product with antioxidants, cell growth factors and peptides combined. It’s really expensive but worth it if you have a lot of sun damage or are over 45ish.

A very nice antioxidant for those of you with sensitive skins (who don’t tolerate Vitamin C serums well) is the Replenix Cream (90% polyphenol isolates) – works but not irritating.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
