People say, “Nothing looks better in your 40s than effective skincare in your 20s!” and as a professional medspa, we stand by these words! The trick is knowing the right skin care products and treatments to use, so that your complexion can look the part. We hate to break it to you but the light moisturizer that kept your skin glowing and dewy in your 20s just isn’t going to cut it when you’re dealing with fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and changing skin texture that occurs with age.
If you type “Best Skincare Products” in Google, you will be met with an overwhelming 700+ million results, so where do you even start? There are millions of different products being offered with varying amounts, sizes, conditions, prices, ingredients, etc. and it can get really confusing and stressful not knowing which products really work and which products are all hype. The last thing you’d want to do is waste your money on products that don't work, or make your skin concerns even worse!
When founding our medspa, we wanted all of our clients to feel comfortable and trust that they will get real, natural-looking results. That’s why we only use treatments and products that really work and are backed by science. Compiling a results-driven skin regime is already stressful enough, so we put together this At-Home-Skincare Guide of products we trust and personally recommend (and even use in our medspa) to make your life in quarantine a little less frustrating!
