A word to the wise 👉👉👉

You only need 5 skincare products for healthy skin and anti-aging.

In order of most importance:
1 Sunscreen -AM
2 Retinoid PM (+ moisturizer always)
3 Vitamin C Serum AM
4 Moisturizer-PM (and sometimes AM before SPF)
5 Cleanser

then add exfoliation in the form of a toner or cleanser once you’re ready!

Then eye cream, etc

I wish I would have known this sooner ♥️

Do you have your favorite products for each category? Let me know!

P.S. that’s right cleanser is last in order of importance because honestly if you shower regularly you’re cleansing. The other active ingredients are where you see the radiance happen!
...

Which skincare patient are you?!?!
comment below and tell me: ☝🏼✌🏼👌🏼

1. Teenagers/early 20s= preventing and treating breakouts

- start daily gentle cleanser, moisturizer +SPF
-if breaking out, add a an active ingredient in the form of a retinoid or toning pad and/or medicated cleanser

2. 20s-late 30s= maybe some breakouts + preventing sun damage and some will be reversing past sun already ba

1 prioritize 3 products: daily SPF, PM retinoid and Vitamin C serum in the AM
In addition to cleansing and moisturizing
- best to add a toning pad and in office treatments
- eye cream optional

➕Add a few laser and chemical peels or microneedling each year!

3. 40+ =preventing + correcting past sun damage
- Prioritize in-office treatments in addition to the routine above

- this means Microneelding, chemical peels, lasers, etc … this is where is gets custom based off your skin and goals!

Everyone needs a COMPREHENSIVE PERSONALIZED SKINCARE ROUTINE♥️

That’s why I’m here 😀

All 3 types benefit from chemical peels and visiting an esthetician for a treatment as often as monthly (think Oprah memes)

Recommend starting BBL laser and microneedling 2-3 times per year around age 30 unless there is a A LOT of sun damage and freckles/lentigo.

Serums are the most potent form of any ingredient but you cant just keep layering and layering on serums...
So we prioritize
vitamin C
and then 2 others max.

Peptide serums 2 times a day (morning and night) are my next fave to add for anti-aging.

Niacinamide and Hyaluronic acid serums are 2 other favs.

You can also get peptides in the form of a moisturizer! @alastinskincare is where it’s at for peptides👍🏼

Do you have “chicken skin” like I do? 

It’s called K E R A T O S I S 🐓 P I L A R I S (KP)

2 words: exfoliate + moisturize on and REPEAT.

Many people struggle with this rash on the back of their arms, legs, and/or or cheeks. 

What’s happening? hair follicles plugged with keratin (skin cells) 

What to do? 
exfoliate the plugged keratin in the shower.
moisturize within 3 minutes of exiting shower. 

I love the help of a physical exfoliator pad like @cleanlogic

…also they’re a brand you can just get behind. 
☑ affordable
☑ accessible
☑ sustainable
☑ reusable
☑ brand with braille 
🏆The goal is to exfoliate the area regularly and moisturize often. KP is a chronic condition so be consistent to see a big difference in the texture of your skin!

SBS blossomed from a gap I constantly saw as a Dermatology PA between the medical Dermatology and esthetics worlds.

These pads fill a gap as well! I couldn’t find the ingredients paired at a pricepoint and accessibility so I searched for a year for the right mix. They’re here all in one place to make skincare custom, easy, and accessible for busy people... like you.

The goal is to make skincare easy for you so I made the perfect blend.

NEW SbS Daily Toning Pad. $30
👉🏼Use once a daily in the AM; start 2-3 times a week
Why? 🤷🏻‍♀️
1 Prevent and treat breakouts
2 Decrease discoloration from breakouts + sun damage

Weekly Brightening Peel Pad $45
Step up your routine AKA next level skincare
1-2 times a week at night
(Skip retinoid on these nights)

Why use?🤷🏻‍♀️
1 Exfoliation /Anti-aging
2 Brown spots
3 Redness
4 Overall skin health

Ways to Remove Makeup

1 Oil Cleanse ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ simply the best.
The genius: OIL dissolves OIL.
Can be a one-step cleanse and moisturize in one without leaving a greasy feeling, especially in winter. Most importantly: Protects the protective moisture barrier on skin.

If you don’t love Pond’s Cold Cream or want a squeeze/pump option the Neutrogena eye makeup remover lotion or a creamy cleanser is a great option.

2 Micellar Water- fine but need A LOT of solution to get the job done IMO. Doesn’t remove make-up that well IMO either.

3 Cleansing Balms 👎🏼 dislike because thick. Basically emollients so HAVE to use another cleanser after to remove the excess.

4 Water activated clothes 💧 I like these for travel! They don’t seem to remove eye make-up as well, BUT i think they are a great on-the-go for cleansing skin.

5 Creamy cleansers 🧴I LOVE. the good ones remove make-up AND cleanse. The Alastin Ultra Calming Cleanser does it all. I think so worth it for $45.

6 Liquid eye makeup remover 👀 - I like and used for years. Need a cotton pad. Great for eye area, but not rest of face

7 Micellar water Wipes - SURPRISE! if the other alternative is going to bed with makeup then wipes BUT they MUST be juicy. Stick to micellar water.

(8 makeup remover lotion… kind of fits into 1 and 5) … it’s added at the end because Betty grabbed it and ran off with it when I was making this, but I found it!!
