How can I put together an optimal product regimen?
Here’s what I would do. It’s hard to get all the categories in …. sunscreen, Renova/Retin A (Vit A cousin), antioxidants, cell growth factors and possibly some peptides or anti-glycation options. Forget the toners. They just don’t add much.
AM (in order) gentle cleanser, vitamin C serum(or another antioxidants), moisturizer if needed, sunscreen
PM (in order) gentle cleanser, TNS Essential Serum (wait 5-10 min), moisturizer (if needed), Renova
Pick your moisturizer by your skin type, lifestyle and the season. Lighter ones in the summer, going to the tropics, or if you’re oily. Heavier if you’re skiing, live in the desert, etc. It’s nice to have 3 different weights for different situations. Personally I keep 3 around……a very light gel like the SkinCeuticals Vitamin B5 gel, a medium weight like the Emollience, and a heavy duty one like the Eminence Bluberry Soy or the Vivite Replenishing.
