How can I get the most out of my products?
Sorry about the silence on this end. We were on spring break with our children. Thank you and you raise a good point!
There are a few products now that most of us are using that provide clear benefits (both the science and experience) so the question of how to get the most from them is a good one. Most of us aren’t going to apply products more than twice a day – we are busy!!! Morning and night seems to work well for most of us. How do we layer these or alternate them since there isn’t much science on how they might interact with each other? Here is my skin care advice:
So on the TNS, my vote is to use it once a day – and yes you will get benefit from that. Some patients like to start with it twice a day for the first month or two to see more of the effect but most of us are using it once in order to have time/room for other products. So for example, I often use it under my Renova (Vit A cousin) at night – but wait a few minutes in between. In the sunnier/outdoorsier months, I use more antioxidant and sunscreen and cut the retinoid (Renova etc) down to 1-2 week because the Renova increases sun sensitivity a little. TNS is a good night option then with your antioxidant under your sunscreen in the morning. I’m sure you see the logic.
Hope this helps!
