"Ask yourself, 'If there is something I could change or improve about my skin, what would it be?' Most people will reply with their #1 concern, such as acne, discoloration, large pores or coarse texture."
"Then, decide what else you would like to change or improve. Typically, people have about three or four concerns. A skincare program should be targeted toward improving or resolving those issues. With that in mind, generally, a program should include a resurfacing agent that will address concerns such as mild acne, enlarged follicles, coarse texture, and fine lines and wrinkles to name a few."
"Did you know? About 90 to 95 percent of what we perceive as inevitable aging is caused by cumulative sun exposure, most of which has been programmed into the skin many years before it becomes visible. Therefore, it is critical to include clinically proven anti-aging ingredients along with anti-inflammatories (aging is inflammatory based) and antioxidants. Barrier function in the form of moisture is important, and it is essential to have the appropriate sun protection."
"Finally, if an individual has a major issue with, for example, acne or discoloration, [he or she] needs to add in something that will specifically address and resolve that condition."
- "As a product researcher, I am aware that people can spend obscene amounts of money on products that do not have real clinical validation or objective proven efficacy. That's why independent physician evaluation should always be a factor in determining your best skincare routine."
