Core 4 Forgotten Favorites, Winter 2014 Newsletter
In this industry, things are always changing and evolving, so it’s no surprise when the latest technology and ingredients hit the shelves, we want to try them! But, there are those tried and true products that never fail! Just for you, I’ve put together a complete list of “forgotten favorites” following Dr. Taub’s signature Core 4 skin care regimen.
One of my favorites, that I believe every person should have is a PMD® Clean Smart Facial Cleansing Device . This waterproof PMD® Clean smart cleansing device uses over 7,000 vibrations per minute with their SonicGlow™ technology to deeply cleanse the skin daily to minimize the appearance of blackheads, enlarged pores or reduce oil congestion. The vibrations on the skin, allow for a soothing, calming experience to also firm, lift and tone problem areas. The silicone brush is antibacterial and no replacement heads are needed. brush heads for all skin types.
Many of you may not be aware that an antioxidant should be part of your everyday skin care regimen. Why? Antioxidants such as Green Tea and Vitamin C reduce inflammation, minimize damage from the environment and give an added boost of protection to your skin cells. Toxins in the environment can increase external aging and cause your skin to appear run down. SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic ($153) combines Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Ferulic acid to protect and provide a little bit of hydration, a must for winter months! Simply apply this serum to clean, dry skin and continue with your skin care regimen!
The best product you can use for your skin is a Zinc Oxide based SPF. Yes, even during the winter months. Sun damage occurs year round and even though there is less daylight during the winter, the sun’s rays can reflect off the wet pavement, snow and ice. Colorescience makes a powdered SPF 30 in 3 shades, light, medium and tan. Each shade contains 12% Zinc Oxide and 12% Titanium Dioxide. Because it is a powder, this makes it an ideal product for reapplication at any point during the day. Sun is the number 1 aging factor, so it only makes sense that SPF is your number 1 anti-aging product.
Last but not least, your growth factor. Growth factors are beneficial for many reasons. Their main purpose is to stimulate collagen and increase cell turnover. As we age, cell turnover slows and our skin starts to lose elasticity, both of these factors contribute to lines and can increase potential for scarring. SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex ($165) has always been a dependable growth factor with great results. Apply twice daily for the first 3 months and then once daily after the 3 months. Using a great skin care regimen doesn’t have to be complicated, just a few steps with the right products is all you need! *All prices are subject to change.
