Where Do I Start With My Skincare Routine?

Skincare can be overwhelming! Where to start? What to use? It can be a bit daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Let’s discuss skincare 101 with Sundrop Aesthetics!

I see clients who use 20 products and clients who have no skincare products and it is so exciting to help each of my clients find the right regimen for their skin. It is even more rewarding as the clients starts to see real results and positive changes!

There are so many products and so many brands. One thing is for sure, medical grade skincare stands apart from the drug store counter. What does medical grade actually mean? Well, it means that the products contain higher doses of ingredients that you traditionally cannot buy over the counter. Medical grade skincare has associated studies and research behind it and it is carefully created. So here are the top FOUR things everyone needs for healthy skin!

  1. Cleanser: First thing is first with skincare and that is everyone needs a great cleanser! Cleansers remove debris off the skin and they prep the skin for the topicals that will be applied, so they can be better absorbed.
  2. Toner: Toner is the next step after cleansing. Toner is important to help with oil control on skin, remove further debris and makeup, and toner allows skincare products to better penetrate the skin.
  3. Antioxidants/vitamins serums: These products go on next to help with skin brightening, oil control, skin firming, protect the skin from damage, and they de-age the skin. Moisturizer can be applied after serums if hydration of skin is necessary.
  4. Sunscreen: Is the most important skincare step! Sun damage is the leading cause of early aging. Sunscreen protects against damaging sunrays that contribute to skin damage, early aging, and skin cancers. Not all sunscreen is treated alike though. Medical grade sunscreen provides the best protection, without harmful ingredients and even has properties to help with moisture control, wrinkle protection, and restoration.
