Keep It Simple Skin Care


Some of you are very busy, and one of my friends calls herself a tomboy.  "Your regimen is too complicated," she says.

How pared down can we make your skin care?

Assuming fairly normal skin, not too dry and not too oily, you need 4 things.

  • A gentle cleanser (am and pm)
  • a combined sunscreen and moisturizer (am)
  • a Vitamin C or Retinol cream (try SkinMedica)(pm)
  • a moisturizer (pm)

Simple even for the busiest or most resistant to self care.

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!
