Two Key Staples To Have In Your Skincare Regimen
by Melissa Selig

Vitamin C is an amazing serum to have in your skincare routine. It plays a big role in protecting your skin from free radicals and pollution. It also helps with hyperpigmentation, evens skin tone, and gives you an overall brighter look. It’s a powerhouse antioxidant, whose skin wouldn’t love that? Medical grade vitamin c’s are more potent because they can be. The over the counter vitamin c’s or random ones on Amazon usually aren’t the most potent or best, so I always advise to spend the money on a good vitamin c. This serum can be applied morning and night right after your cleanser.


The next important skincare product to have in your regimen is a retinoid. There’s many strengths to this product and starting off low and working your way up to a higher percent is the way to go. This is a superstar product. Not only does it help decrease/prevent fine lines and wrinkles, but also literally helps your skin build more collagen. It helps people who suffer from acne and just oily skin in general. If you have some unwanted pigment, it can even help with that as well. It promotes rapid cellular turnover and grows new blood vessels leaving your skin looking fresh and youthful. This product can only be applied at night! These are all reasons why adding a vitamin c and retinoid to your skincare regimen will be so beneficial to you! I always advise to schedule a skincare consult with an esthetician so they can go over the best skincare for you!
