Two Products You Must Use Now and Always

Two products that are absolutely proven to make a visible as well as microscopic difference in skin by reversing sun damage (and skin cancer risks):

1 – A potent UVA blocking (they all block UVB) sunscreen like the Elta MD UV Daily or UV Clear, the DermaQuest ZinClear, or the SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion.

2 – A Retinoid (Vit A cousin cream) which, if tolerated, has been shown more than any other cream, serum, gel etc. to reduce wrinkles, improve texture and brown spots, reverse sun damage, and help prevent pre-cancerous spots and skin cancers.  Your doctor can give you a prescription, or you can use the non-prescription ones like the SkinMedica Retinol Complex .25.

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?!
