The Importance of a Proper Skin Care Regimen

Hey, you, congrats! You’re one of the success stories. You’ve refocused your priorities on skin care. And In today’s world, healthy skin is more important than ever before.

The next step is to establish a proper routine. With your unique skin type and condition, it’s time to pick the products that will work best with the medically sound treatment you’re receiving from your Midwest Dermatology physician.

So where does healthy skin start?

All skin types need products, applied after cleansing twice daily, that emphasize:

  • Prevention
  • Protection
  • Correction

By customizing your regimen and including products in these three areas, you have the best opportunity to prevent premature aging and the development of skin cancer. With a solid regimen in place, you can continue to improve your skin’s appearance and your skin’s overall tone and texture, and prevent unwanted skin conditions.

Midwest DERMaesthetics is proud to carry a variety of products from our friends at SkinBetter SCIENCE. The SkinBetter products all feature cutting-edge science-based formulas that use the best ingredients on the market.

Prevention heads skin issues off at the pass

Of course, one of the most effective ways to deal with skin concerns like sun damage and premature aging is to take steps to prevent them. Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, is an excellent skin care ingredient that you can apply daily. Its antioxidant properties have the potential to neutralize harmful free radicals that can lead to common signs of premature aging, such as lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and discoloration.

Free radicals are generated by UV light, air pollution and other toxins in the environment. They cause cell damage by bonding with other molecules – like the collagen proteins in the skin. Unfortunately, this leads to oxidation and damage, sometimes even destroying the molecule. Antioxidants (the name says it all!) assist in preventing this damage by neutralizing the process of potentially harmful oxidation.

Alto Defense Serum by SkinBetter SCIENCE delivers the antioxidant ingredients you need for this key preventive step. In addition to daily antioxidant protection, Alto Defense Serum improves the appearance of uneven skin tone and redness.

Protection shields your skin from serious harm

Photodamage, which is caused by the sun’s UV rays, can lead to a number of unwanted and potentially harmful skin conditions and diseases, including the two biggies – skin cancer and premature aging. Protecting your skin with SUN PROTECTION FACTORS (SPF) found in sunscreens is essential and probably the most effective way to maintain a youthful appearance.

Our favorite facial sunscreen from SkinBetter SCIENCE is sunbetter ToneSmart SPF 75 Sunscreen, a tone adapting, lovely feeling facial lotion with a hint of tint. It provides a base for your makeup or just does the job alone. This stay-put formula won’t run into your eyes, doesn’t give you that “chemical” feeling and, most importantly, provides extraordinary protection from the sun.

Correction turns the tables on time and life

When despite our best efforts Mother Nature takes her toll, the next step is correction. Fortunately, we’ve got that covered, too, with select products that address key concerns.

First, to help improve the appearance of deep lines, wrinkles, uneven texture and discoloration, AlphaRet™ Overnight Cream by SkinBetter SCIENCE utilizes a proprietary formula. It combines a retinoid with alpha hydroxy acids to deliver a highly effective age-correcting skincare hero act. These gold-standard anti-aging ingredients work together to promote significant improvement in the appearance of sun-damaged and aged skin.

Other correcting products by SkinBetter SCIENCE include Even Tone Correcting Serum, a lightweight formula that improves the appearance of brown spots and hyperpigmentation from the sun, and Interfuse Treatment Cream to improve saggy skin, lines and wrinkles for the face and neck, the eyes. For deeper lines and wrinkles, Interfuse comes in an intense formula, too.
