"We believe patients should take a hard look at improving their skincare routine."
Understanding your skin is essential. What does this mean? First, determine if your skin is sensitive, especially when trying new products or considering a new course of treatment. After this, figure out the type of skin you most likely have, such as dry, oily or a combination of both.
"Every good skin care routine should follow three simple steps: cleanse, treat and prevent," said Amy Derick, MD, FAAD, clinical instructor of dermatology, Northwestern University. "Sunscreen prevents wrinkles, sun spots and even skin cancer, making it the most effective skin care product you can buy."
