Upgrade Your Skin Care Regimen In 2018

No matter how old you are, you can probably benefit from a skin care upgrade in 2018. Pollution, the sun’s harmful UV rays, what we eat, aging—these are all factors that contribute to the decline of our skin. However, if you make changes to your skin care regime by embracing different products, you can erase years of damage and get back the beautiful skin you had in your youth.

Upgrade Your Skin Care Regimen

Switch to Medical Grade Skin Care

Medical grade skin care products are generally sold through physicians’ offices (we have our own line at McLean Clinic called Skinceuticals). These products are rigorously tested and refined, and contain higher percentages of active ingredients that our skin needs, such as alpha-hydroxy acids, vitamin A (retinol) and vitamin C. The skin care lines you can purchase at the drugstore are more likely to have little to no benefits for your skin. In fact, most of those products do absolutely nothing except make your skin smell like a scented candle.

What Does Medical Grade Skin Care Do?

The majority of damage that our skin incurs is from the sun and other light sources (tanning beds, etc.). UVA, UVB and infrared light sources are the most damaging to our skin because the harsh rays penetrate below our skin’s surface and hurt our cells and DNA. Other environmental factors, such as pollution, create free radicals that further affect our skin on a cellular level, resulting in protein damage, DNA mutations and inflammation. Medical grade skin care works to reverse cellular damage, increase protein production, restore DNA and erase the signs of aging.

Medical Grade Skin Care:

  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Creates plumper, more youthful looking skin
  • Nourishes and hydrates dry skin
  • Promotes the production of proteins like collagen
  • Improves the texture and tone of the skin
  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Treats acne and rosacea

What Products Should You Use in Your Medical Grade Skin Care Upgrade?

  • Cleanser: designed to get rid of the irritants on the skin without drying it out
  • Toner: removes the dead skin cells that block our pores, giving our skin the ability to breathe
  • Prevention: prepares our skin for the future by keeping harsh agents from harming our skin cells
  • Protection: high-level SPFs that are made with zinc-oxide to create an impenetrable barrier against the sun and other infrared light sources
  • Correction: repair visible (sunspots, etc.) and invisible damage (cell issues)
  • Moisturizer: lightly blankets the skin while working with its natural oils to keep our cells from drying out and give our skin a boost of hydration
