Effective skincare which won’t break the bank

Safe and Effective Skincare in Encinitas CA area

It is often overwhelming to walk down the skincare aisle and pick out what to put on your skin. The products and price points are so varied it’s hard to wonder if some products are “worth” their cost. Some products are physician grade, have medical science supporting their use and are fantastic. However if you’re not ready for a physician grade routine there are three basic products you can start out with:

  • Purpose gentle cleanser – True to its name, this gentle cleanser removes dust, dirt, makeup and oil from the skin without drying it out or irritating it, the way ordinary soap does. It won’t clog pores and is hypoallergenic which means it is ideal for all skin types, even the most sensitive. It’s available in a bottle with an easy-to-use pump mechanism.
  • CeraVe lotion – This lightweight, oil-free moisturizer helps hydrate skin and restore its natural barrier. It contains three essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid, and provides long-lasting (24-hour) hydration in a lightweight, non-comedogenic formula which won’t clog pores. Its hypoallergenic and non-irritating properties make it a gentle moisturizer suitable for daily use.
  • La Roche Posay mineral sunscreen – Gentle yet effective sun protection is offered by this range of Anthelios advanced UVA/UVB broad spectrum mineral sunscreens of +50 SPF. Containing ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, these sunscreens are free of chemicals and are safe for use even on sensitive skin. The most suitable product for each skin type can be selected.

To learn more about these products, call Skin & Vein Institute on (760) 642-6674 or email [email protected] . For complete skincare, book an appointment with Dr. Amanda Lloyd.
