With the New Year upon us, we've made resolutions. Some of us want to be healthier or make more money. Perhaps your resolution is to take better care of your skin! I hope that it is! You may not know where to begin though, with all of the different products that are on the market. You may also wonder how to start a skin care regimen without spending alot of money, as some products are very expensive. I am going to share with you how to begin a skin care regimen that will cost about $100!

Skin care doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. The first product that you should invest in is a good sunscreen! It is a proven fact that sunscreen not only prevents skin cancer but slows down the aging process of our skin. You should use a sunscreen that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide alone or in combination of at least 6%. These are mineral sunscreens that sit on the surface of our skin and don't disappear until we sweat, swim or wash them off. We carry a very elegant sunscreen made by SkinMedica. This sunscreen also contains antioxidants that help fight free radical formation on our skin. We carry a variety of other sunscreens as well by Blue Lizard and Solbar. All are inexpensive and you can pick them up in our office, no appointment needed.

The second product you should invest in is a retinol. Retinols are commonly used anti-aging products. They are a topical form of vitamin A that help to minimize fine lines, wrinkles, help smooth the skin, even out pigmentation and give you more radiant skin. We carry three prescription strength retinol formulas in our office made by the company SkinMedica. If you have sensitive skin, you should slowly begin using a low strength retinol. There are many retinols that are over-the-counter as well. The retinols we carry are inexpensive and prescription strength but you don't need a prescription to pick them up in our office. Retinols can make your skin more sensitive to a sunburn so, it is very important that you use your sunscreen everyday!

These two products are the best and most inexpensive way to begin a skin care regimen. Together these products are about a $100 investment! By using these two products you'll be on your way to beautiful, healthy, glowing skin!
