Skincare doesn’t have to be expensive to work. Check out some of our favorite products below that yield great results but don’t break the bank!

  1. Skin Medica AHA/BHA Cleanser $47 

Unlike other exfoliating cleansers that are way too abrasive (St. Ives Scrub…we’re looking at you) this cleanser is a gentle way to exfoliate dead skin cells using jojoba beads to leave the skin nice and baby smooth. BHA- also known as Beta Hydroxy Acid – uses salicylic acid to exfoliate and AHA – also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acid- use lactic, glycolic, citric, and malic acid to enhance appearance making the skin look brighter and helps to improve tone and texture. Use this product in the AM/PM or as tolerated to give your skin a more youthful appearance.

  1. Obagi Foaming and Gentle Cleanser $44

The foaming cleanser is used for oily skin and the gentle cleanser is used for dry and sensitive skin. This cleanser not only removes dirt and impurities but removes makeup as well. We love this cleanser because it is so gentle and is the perfect every day cleanser!

  1. Skin Medica Retinol 1.0 $93

Retinol is the only anti-aging ingredient that is clinically proven to reverse the signs of fine lines and wrinkles. This product helps to produce collagen and promote cell turnover to repair the skin. It helps to reduce pore size, improve tone and texture, and leaves skin looking plump and youthful. Retinol is to be used only at night a few times a week or as tolerated after you cleanse and tone. Whether you use it to reverse aging or prevent against it, a retinol is always encouraged to be in every skin regimen.

  1. Skin Medica Instant Bright Eye Cream $88

Say goodbye to dull and dehydrated under eyes. We are loving this new eye cream because not only does this product brighten the eyes-it hydrates them as well! Using Lytera 2.0 and HA5, it corrects the pigment and and hydrates the under eye keeping it plump and moisturized all day! This product improves dark circles, sagging, puffiness and fine lines. We love pairing this product with the Skin Medica Eye Mask ($48) for a full 9 hours of sleep glow!

  1. Total Defense + Repair SPF 34 $68

SPF is your #1 go to for anti-aging and protection against harmful exposure! What makes this product so unique is that it not only protects your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, it also helps repair the skin and help restore current damage. This lightweight, non-greasy formula is perfect for all skin types even if you are super oily. This product also protects from free radical damage and environmental pollutants, which is why it’s not just a sunscreen…it’s a SUPERSCREEN.

  1. ISDIN Eryfotona $46 

This mineral sunscreen has a lightweight formula that is SPF 50! This sunscreen protects against UVA/UVB damage as well as shielding against actinic and free radical damage. Actinic damage is severely flaking, itchy raised skin lesions that can accumulate over time. The face, forehead, ears, chest, scalp, and back are common places where actinic damage is present. Our patients love this product because it is heavy duty protection while still being very lightweight.
