When it comes to our skin care routine, many of us grab a skincare product from the shelf without knowing if it’ll truly do the job for our unique skin type. And most of the time, we get it wrong. Because we’re not professionals and not many people know what their skin needs.
Luckily, Apex Dermatology has the experts to help, and just launched its very own medical-grade skincare line that’s both effective and affordable!
Why is it important to have a good skincare routine?
A good skin care routine is important for several reasons. First, the skin is the largest organ of the body and a good routine can help keep it healthy.
What is the difference between medical-grade skincare and over the counter skincare?
Medical-grade skin care products are formulated to target specific medical conditions and concerns such as sun protection, anti-aging, pigmentation, acne, etc. In comparison to over-the-counter products, medical-grade skin care products have the purest form and a higher concentration of the active ingredient. This allows for greater penetration of the product and increased efficacy. Medical-grade skin care products are regulated by the FDA and backed by scientific research.
How do I know which skincare products to choose?
The numerous products sold over the counter and advertised on television and social media, can cause confusion over which products to purchase. What works for someone else, may not be the best choice for you. At Apex, we are trained to evaluate your skin and help select products that are best for you and your skin.
What are some of your favorites in the new line?
Dr. McKeen shares, “I feel it is important that every regimen have a good cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. The new Apex line has a green tea cleanser and tinted sun shield that I love.
There are also several moisturizers in the new line that have antioxidants and restore the skin barrier. I always add a Vitamin C serum into my regimen, it is an antioxidant that decreases free radical damage and helps with pigmentation.
Another product that I favor is the perfect retinol serum. My skin is very sensitive and cannot tolerate many products with retinol or retinoids, however, my skin is able to tolerate this product well. The retinol serum is elegant and allows me to get additional anti-aging benefits without the irritability that I get from many other retinols.
I am really excited about the new Apex line because has a diverse selection of medical-grade products that target a wide-range of patient concerns, so there is something for everyone. In addition, these products are high quality and cost effective for our patients.”
