What Makes skinfo® Different From Other Stores?
What makes shopping at skinfo® so different than shopping at other stores? Skinfo® is a privately owned small business which started out initially as a website created by Amy Forman Taub, MD, FAAD and then a couple years later got its own store front. skinfo® later expanded along with Advanced Dermatology when the location in downtown Glencoe opened in the summer of 2013. Here at skinfo® Specialty Skincare Boutique we have a unique retail setting, combining a store that consists of carefully selected medical grade skincare, mineral makeup, facial waxing and other select services. It is common to see pre made skincare regimens for purchase by skincare
brands that are put together to help a specific concern. We believe that no one person is the same and neither is their skin. We customize skincare regimens by getting to know you, your skin, your daily routine and what specific products from a variety of brands would be best combined for your lifestyle, skin concerns and skin type. Being able to pick from a wide variety of skincare lines allows us to customize your skincare regimen down to a T.
Along with being able to customize a person’s skincare routine down to their specific concerns whether it be lifestyle, how much they would like to spend and most importantly what is most going to benefit their skin, Dr. Taub has come up with the CORE4. The CORE4 includes the 4 components of which would make a complete skincare routine. The CORE4 consists of an Antioxidant, an Exfoliant, a Growth Factor and Sunscreen.
Sunscreen is a word you hear a lot around the boutique. It prevents premature aging, sunburn and skin cancer. It is best to have a sunscreen with 5% zinc oxide, the only ingredient that covers the majority of the UV spectrum.
An Antioxidant is going to help repair cellular damage caused by the sun and other environmental pollutants.
Exfoliating the skin helps to accelerate skin cell metabolism that slows with age and skin damage. Increased cell turnover helps to build collagen, brighten the skin and boosts the effectiveness of other products.
Lastly Growth Factors stimulate new collagen, elastin growth and repair damaged collagen. More collagen = firmer skin with less wrinkles.
skinfo® also offers skincare consultations, where you will meet with one of our licensed estheticians to go over your top skin concerns and what products would be the best for you. We are here to help you achieve beautiful and healthy skin, no matter your lifestyle or budget.
