Are You Layering Your Skincare Correctly? — March 28, 2021

Are You Layering Your Skincare Correctly?

It’s not only important to use the right products, you need to use them in the right order to maximize the benefit.  Think prepare, treat, and seal your products in. 

Here’s a simple 4-step guide: 

1) Cleanser

2) Toner to remove excess oil that would block penetration of products

3) Serum—your antioxidants and/or growth factors

4) Moisturizer to seal in your products—this can be in your makeup or sunscreen

Moisturizer Pearls — April 6, 2017

Moisturizer Pearls

Not all moisturizers are created equal. Here are my favorites:

  1. HA 5 by SkinMedica – can take “lizard skin” on the face and smooth and plump. This product is a necessity for those of us “of a certain age”.

      2. Obagi Luxe – less pricey than the above but still good.

      3. B 5 Hydrating gel by SkinCeuticals. Keep it in your purse
