Skincare consultations include daily skincare routines as well as recommendations for monthly and yearly treatments that are typically on the esthetics side of care. Sydney works closely with the estheticians at Spa Novus to help you reach your skincare goals.
An esthetician specializes in analyzing your skin and deciding the appropriate treatments for you. Sydney believes the best skincare is achieved when skincare plans include both the medical side and esthetics sides.

First and foremost, cleansers are made to clean dirt and oil off our skin.
Think of cleansers in 2 categories: medicated v non-medicated.
The most common examples of medicated cleansers are those that have benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid.
I recommend using an exfoliating cleanser once daily and non-medicated cleanser once daily (one that just cleans the dirt and oil off the skin).
There are some general guidelines for picking a cleanser:
Foaming cleanser- great for oily, normal-oily or combination skin types.
Gel cleansers- dry skin
Milky cleanser- dry skin
For sensitive skin, La Roche-Posay, especially for sensitive and dry skin
For eczema-prone sensitive skin, Epionce.
For acne-prone skin, there are wonderful, cheaper options available that mainly include salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.

Cleansers are not a place I typically recommend $$, unless you find one that's worth it for sure!
