"4 Basic Skin Care Steps" 


1.  Cleansing Daily

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 wherever.

2.  Exfoliate Daily

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 contain pumice beads  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 Retinols from Glotherapeutics or Environ 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.

3.  Hydrating and Moisturizing your skin.

Moisturizers and 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 "Moisture: The Key to Revitalizing the Skin Inside & Out',

4.  Sun Protection. 

'Without 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 50 Sunblockers with Zinc and Titanium made by Skinceuticals.
