Taking care of your skin is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Healthy, glowing skin makes you look better – and feel better. We asked some of our skincare specialists about their favorite products for their patients, and themselves. Who knows, you might discover your new favorite!
The three products I like best are below in order of regimen. Each of them performs a specific function for your skin and can be used together.
My first favorite product offered at ASC is the ASC Gentle Cleanser. I wash with our cleanser twice daily. It's safe to use on all skin types, including post-procedure skin. It has a rich blend of vitamins A, C, and E, green tea extract and Co-Q10 that help calm and soothe the skin with without drying. Plus, glycerin that helps moisturize and soften.
Another great product is the ASC Ultra Lite Lotion. Free of oil, lanolin, fragrance, and color additives, this moisturizer can be used on all skin types including acne prone skin because it's oil free. This moisturizer is aloe vera-based. Combined with glycerin and squalane, this product binds moisture to the skin, slowing moisture loss. It’s also safe to use on the entire body.
Last but not least is Elta MD UV clear broad spectrum SPF 46 in tinted. This product provides UVA/UVB protection while being cosmetically elegant. Elta MD UV clear is safe for skin prone to breakouts, rosacea, and discoloration. Vitamin B3, hyaluronic acid, and lactic acid promote the appearance of healthy looking skin. I apply my Elta over my moisturizer every morning. It's light and silky texture works great under my make-up and the tint gives me great coverage if I choose to go make-up free.
I have two products that I could not live without and I recommend to many of my patients, ASC’s Hydrating Serum and Rejenica Rejuvenating Dual Serum.
I especially love ASC’s Hydrating Serum. What’s great is all skin types can benefit from this product. It works well if your skin is oily, dry, sensitive or somewhere in between. While I use it all year, I love it especially in the winter for my parched dry skin. ASC Hydrating Serum quenches dehydrated skin and retains the skin’s moisture with a plumping effect with peptides and humectants to support healthy collagen. This Hyaluronic serum penetrates and protects skin for continuous moisture. It rejuvenates my skin with antioxidants to soothe and guard against free radicals.
I have looked for a product that works as well and have not come across anything like it. There are similar products on the market, but I have found them to be not as soothing and hydrating as this product. The first few months using our Hydrating Serum has changed my dry skin complexion to soft, glowing and moisturized!
My second favorite skincare product is Regenica Rejuvenating Dual Serum, by far the most advanced growth factor serum on the market. This is a daily anti-aging serum that’s beneficial for all skin types. Rejuvenating Dual serum is created with the most advanced growth factor technology. Its key ingredients include human fibroblast, peptides, amino acids, anti-oxidants, citric acids, niacinamide, and Algae extract just to name a few.
In the first few months using Regenica Dual Serum once daily in the morning on clean dry skin, it has changed my skin texture. I find it improves my skin’s appearance, giving it elasticity and radiance, and diminishing fine lines. I have even noticed the reduction of blotchiness with this revolutionary product.
I recommend three products that I find particularly helpful for brightening, moisturizing and protecting my skin.
My "go to" eye cream that we offer at ASC is Lumiere by Neocutis. It goes on really smoothly because of its moisturizing and hydrating properties. The powerful blend of Growth Factors (PSP) and Hyaluronic Acid repairs, revitalizes and firms fine lines and wrinkles. I have noticed in just a few weeks visibly diminished darkness under my eyes and the alleviation of under-eye puffiness because of Lumiere's caffeine containing ingredient. If you are looking for an anti-aging eye cream to provide a younger, more refreshed and brightened look, try Neocutis Lumiere Eye Cream!
If you are looking for an anti-aging moisturizing cream, you will be happy with my favorite, Bio Restorative Cream by Neocutis. It goes on silky smooth, absorbs into my skin quickly and is not greasy. Its nourishing protein blend of human growth factors (PSP) revitalizes skin. Plus, it’s good for all skin types. I especially like to use it at night because in the morning I feel my skin has been replenished with moisture and feels firmer. With continued use, this moisturizing cream has even helped reduce the appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles.
Let’s not forget sunscreen. It’s so important to maintaining health skin. My favorite is the Elta Airless Pump Broad-Spectrum 30+ UV Lotion. It provides superior moisturizing with Hyaluronic Acid and protects against UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays with its antioxidant properties. The lotion’s transparent zinc oxide absorbs quickly and provides the same protection as the white zinc oxide (lifeguard nose coat) without leaving your skin white. It’s a full-body sunscreen, so it is good for your face too! Plus, it's fragrance free, paraben free, non-comedogenic and good for all skin types. I leave one on the kitchen counter all year long for the whole family to use.
