Your skin is the largest organ in your body and is subjected every day to harsh elements both in and out of doors. A good at-home skin care routine can help keep your skin soft, supple, and more youthful-looking. However, with so many skin care products out on the market, it can be difficult to choose which ones are the best for you. Your dermatologist can help you determine which products will work the best for your unique skin type. Keep reading for a look at a few of the top products for your home skin care routine.
Elta MD Sunscreens
The sun is one of your skin’s greatest adversaries if you do not protect yourself against it. In addition to contributing to premature lines and wrinkles, sun damage can increase your risk of skin cancer. This is why it’s important to incorporate a broad spectrum sunscreen from Elta MD into your daily skin care regimen. Elta MD sunscreens protect you against UVA and UVB rays using microfine transparent zinc oxide, and won’t leave any white residue on your skin. If you have sensitive skin, Elta MD products may still work for you as they are formulated to be as gentle as possible.
The skin around your eyes is delicate and thin, and is highly susceptible to forming fine lines and wrinkles as you get older. Obagi® Elastiderm is a popular and effective treatment that helps restore your skin’s elasticity around your eyes. It comes in both cream and gel formulations, and should be applied twice daily for best results.
Replenix Green Tea Cleanser
A good skin care routine starts with a gentle yet effective cleanser. Replenix cleansers contain green tea polyphenols, vitamins A, C, and E, and caffeine to give you clean skin without removing essential oils. There are formulations for oily, acne-prone skin as well as drier, more sensitive skin.
