So You’d Like Your Spouse or Partner’s Skin to Look a Little Better?

Here’s how to get them started diplomatically.   Tell that you love them first!  Then mention that you’d like them to be healthy for a very long time, including their skin and that you’ve noticed some sun damage.

Then offer to get them a great sunscreen – (men like the affordable Elta MD UV Clear because it is not oily) – and a repair product like a gel antioxidant for night time –SkinCeuticals Phoretin CF Gel is really good and men like it, too.

Later you can move the antioxidant to the morning under the sunscreen and try for moisturizer at night also.

PS – Several years ago, my husband started moisturizing his entire body after every daily shower, and his skin feels so much smoother and nicer now!

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?!
