Your Budget and Products

Let’s say you’re really feeling the budget pinch right now but don’t want to let your skin go entirely. Here’s a good plan from the drugstore, unless you have acne:

  • Cetaphil gentle cleansing lotion morning and night, ­­
  • Olay Total Effects in the morning for your antioxidant/moisturizer and
  • Neutrogena Ultra Dry Touch SPF 30 for your sunscreen. 
  • Then cleanse again at night with Cetaphil and use the Total Effects again.

These products aren’t state of the art, but they are good basics and not expensive.

SkinTour Skincare
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?!
