Why we love Paula Begoun!

I love Paula\'s Choice skin care. Her radio show is how I found you. I trust you because she trusts you. Why don\'t you recommend her product or is it a conflict because she is your patient?

I do love Paula too and I think she provides an incredibly invaluable service to the beauty community with her objective voice and her excellent brain.  And another plus, she’s really funny and fun! 

And, I do like her product line in general.  I usually  find a line of products has several stand outs, a fair number of average products, and then some real losers.  I think Paula’s products beat these averages by having a higher number of excellent ones.   Paula sells direct to consumer through her website and I DO recommend them.   They are a particularly good value for their price point too.   So  it helps me if you have a question about a specific product.

Also, one of the things that makes it fun to work with her and be on her show is that we don’t always agree on everything.  It makes for a friendly, good debate!   Dr. I

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?!
