Patients always ask what I recommend for skin care. It's super easy to get bogged down in the rabbit-holes of an #instainfluencers "12 steps to your perfect skin" regimen. In all reality, I have three kids ages six and under, a full time job, a husband, a website, hobbies (ummm... hello #foodforest), and way too much on my plate to follow any specific skin care routine.
There are a few things that I always do:
I always wash my face twice a day (morning and night.... usually one of those times is a shower ... should I be so lucky that day).
I always apply sunscreen in the morning. At least an SPF 30, most of the time an SPF 50.
I use my retinol or retinoid (depending on how dry the weather is) on a fairly regular basis.
I get botox for my glabella, forehead, and crow's feet.
Most of the time, I'm grabbing whichever product is closest to me, or whatever I can find most easily on my masked solo trips to Target these days.
Here is the handout that I give to my patients listing all the products I currently love. It gets updated pretty frequently.
