Women, in general need to
cleanse their faces twice a day because they need to remove
their makeup at night. Men can often get away with once a
day cleansing but cleansing in the evening will prepare
their faces for application of skincare products. We
recommend that everyone have an aggressive cleanser and a
gentle cleanser on hand. Most of the time you would be using your
aggressive cleanser in the morning and the gentle cleanser
in the evening to remove your makeup. Also, if your face were ever irritated you
would have a gentle cleanser on hand. We also recommend that
you use the Clarisonic skincare brush system with your
cleanser once or twice a week.

Clarisonic cancelled the Inside Outside
Account in January of 2015. We
were not selling enough for them to
bother with us. We have had this account
since 2004 when we opened and have
always promoted their products to our
clients and used the brush during our
Diamond Microdermabrasion. They
wanted us to commit to buying $5000
worth of their devices each year to
continue to carry their products. I am
guessing there is no Spa in San Antonio
that moves $5000 worth of their products
each year so good luck and purchase
Daily exfoliation helps to
remove the layer of dead skin we are constantly shedding.
This is a powerful stimulus for the epidermis to continually
renew itself which is critical for the health and appearance
of the skin. Exfoliation can be aided by use of
products which contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids or Glycolic
acids. Many products, including the Clarifying
Cleanser mentioned above, contain these acids. They work, in
part, by breaking up the bridges between the dead skin cells
so they shed more easily or are more easily removed when you
cleanse. Another way to exfoliate is to use products
which will mechanically remove the dead skin. Plastic
MicroBeads are no longer allowed in Cleansers (MicroBead
Free Waters Act 2015). The Clarisonic Smart Profile Skin Care Brush can be used with the Clarifying
Cleanser above once a day safely in my experience but you
should not use more abrasive cleansers with bits of grit or
shells with the brush. More aggressive exfoliation can be
obtained with periodic use of
Diamond Microdermabrasion or
the VI Peel. The

and especially the
Prescription Level Retinoids (which Governor Perry took away
from Doctors, but I will give you a prescription if you need
this) will also enhance cell turnover, exfoliation and
absorption any product.

Hydrators, in my way of thinking, are two different
classes of products.. Moisturizers are in general a little
oily or very greasy and work primarily by producing a
barrier against evaporative loss from the skin. They
don't bring moisture to the skin, just keep you from losing
it as fast. Petroleum Jelly is an example.
Hydrators are products which usually contain Hyaluronic Acid
or Sodium Hyaluronate. Hyaluronic Acid in our skin
attracts and holds 1000 times its weight in water!!
Better than that Bravo Stuff you buy at the grocery store. It
does not make a lot of sense to me to use Moisturizers
during the day because at least for females you are putting
on foundation, makeup and sun protection and another layer
of something greasy might be too much.
Moisturizers make more sense to me as something to use at
night and a Hydrator during the day. See this special article

question, the most important measure we can take to protect
our skin is daily protection from harmful ultraviolet rays
of the sun. See my comprehensive review of this topic
"The Dark Side of the Sun."
Briefly, we need to protect from the UVB "Burning"
rays, the UVA "Aging" rays and even Infrared
Radiation. The UVA rays and Infrared are especially
harmful as they penetrate deep into the dermis and damage
our collagen in part through production of Free Radicals.
Free Radicals are neutralized by things called Antioxidants,
like Vitamin C and E. You can't take enough of these by
mouth to totally protect your skin, but they do indeed make
a difference, especially the Vitamin C, so take 1-2gm a day
of Vitamin C orally. Therefore, any good skin care program
will have a topical antioxidant serum which you use daily in
addition to a sunscreen/sunblock.
We recommend two SkinCeutical products and and the two SPF
