It’s hard to choose my favs because it changed based on my clients needs but these are my tried and true products that work for almost everyone. I’m skipping the retinoids because no one should start those without the guidance of a professional, so log on to book a consultation to choose the right one for you! 

 

First up: SUNSCREEN. Duh.

None of my clients are surprised and my absolute favorite SPF that works for acne, aging, dry, pigmentation, rosacea and sensitivity is EXTREME PROTECT SPF 30. Some people have asked why I don’t suggest a higher SPF and that’s because I love a physical and chemical SPF, but chemical SPF ingredients can stain clothes, burn eyes or cause irritation and the physical sunscreens tend to be inelegant, but this baby is the perfect blend of dewy and protected.

Don’t forget that sunscreen needs to be reapplied through your the day- about every 2 hrs- so you should be buying this baby every other month. 1 pump for face, two for face neck and décolleté (don’t forget these spot). Bonus: the antioxidants calm the skin and the zincy balm is great for acne/maskne. The only downside here is that darker skin tones will show a white cast due to the zinc, so if that’s you, please do reach for EXTREME PROTECT SPF 40 as the tint helps it look cute but these tints are not for fair skin, just medium dark or darker.

EXTREME PROTECT® SPF 30 provides extraordinary protection by combining broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and powerful antioxidants to mitigate oxidative solar damage. Featuring micro-fine zinc oxide and microencapsulated organic active sunscreens, EXTREME PROTECT SPF 30 offers advanced sun protection.
 
Key Ingredients: 
Zinc Oxide - Safe, physical active sunscreen ingredient
Olive Leaf Extract - A natural antioxidant extract that helps nurture and provide visual support for blemish-prone and compromised skin
Extremozymes® - A proprietary combination of enzymes that are clinically proven to help protect skin from environmental aggressors
Centella Asiatica - Powerful antioxidant with nourishing properties that helps diminish the appearance of premature aging

 

My favorite night cream is TRIPLE LIPID RESTORE.

Again, great for everyone (as long as you don’t have a lavender allergy) and it makes everyone buttery and dewy, which is a win. This baby is awesome for those who are in a retinoid as it strengthens the lipid barrier in the skin. If you’re in the retinization phase and are experiencing dryness/irritation then it’s your best friend, but it’s great for acne, eczema, dry skin, wrinkles, and pretty much everyone. You can mix it with your retinol or you can layer your retinol over it to make the retinol hit a little softer. Other than the lavender allergy, people do great with this product but I don’t suggest it during the day for breakout prone/ bumpy folks.

Skin Types: Dry, Normal, Oily, Combination, Sensitive
Skin Condition: Dehydrated, Aging
Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti-aging cream that contains the optimal and patented lipid ratio of 2% pure ceramides 1 and 3, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids, which is proven to nourish skin and correct signs of aging. This unique lipid correction cream contains the first 2:4:2 cholesterol-dominant ratio to help restore skin's external barrier and support natural self-repair, while potently nourishing aging skin for improvement in the visible appearance of skin smoothness, laxity, pores, and overall radiance.

 

Ok, this one was definitely a surprise to me, but this product has been the one that was a pleasant surprise since its a moisturizer/serum/hydrator all-in-one: DERMAL REPAIR CREAM.

I reapply throughout the day before my SPF reapplication and I love it in the daytime, nighttime, in between and even as an eye cream! This product is awesome for dehydration and anyone who has redness or pigment. It doesn’t cause breakouts, which is great, and it is a power moisturizer and has a profound calming effect on he skin. Need more moisture? Try TRIPLE LIPID or DERMAL REPAIR ULTRA NOURISH.

SENTÉ Dermal Repair Cream is the flagship skin care product formulated with patented HSA (Heparan Sulfate Analog) technology. This unique and elegant formulation is clinically shown to improve the appearance of mature or photo-damaged skin.

    Another treasure in COMPLEXION RENEWAL PADS.

    These babies have been a lifesaver for anyone with pigment, acne, wrinkles, dryness, texture, oily skin, and pretty much everyone. I’s an exfoliating pad that definitely has more bark than bite. You may feel a little sting when you use it (who else is a creep and loves that) but you will wake up with calm, smooth and hydrated skin- just don’t overuse it! Start with once a week and then work your way up to 3 and if you wake up and your skin is more sensitive than when you went to bed, you went too far so give it a rest and try again.

    Benefits:
    Dual action exfoliation removes dead skin cells to prevent clogged pores
    Reduces oiliness and minimizes surface oil 
    Calms and soothes irritated skin
    Key Ingredients:
    Glycolic acid: Proven epidermal exfoliant
    Botanical extract blend: Properties to soothe skin and reduce redness; also provides antioxidant benefits
    Texture of pads: Specifically designed to help promote exfoliation

       

      The next two items are just a couple of things that I personally use on a weekly basis and I recommend to everyone to keep your skin silky smooth and hydrated af: razors and silicone masks! I personally like using Bic Silky Touch Razors because they are gentle and slim, so they are great for the face. 

      Tip: don’t every save up and don’t try to go for a clean shave. 

      Here's how I use the silicone mask:
      Apply any water based serum, mask or hydrator and then put the silicone mask over it for as long as you like! Easy as that! This little baby is reusable and washes off with soap and water. My favorite product to layer underneath is DAILY POWER DEFENSE.
