We buy Botox, Fillers, and all sorts of procedures to help improve the way we look but then we use a discount store skin care product thinking we are helping our skin. Using the right kind of skin care products is essential in protecting the investment that you have already made. But many women do not know what products they should be using. So they buy something at the department store.
To help you understand what you should be using for protecting your skin, Dr. Kimberly Finder developed her “Finder’s Five”. These are the types of products that are essential to keep that youthful and healthy skin you have worked so hard to get.
Sunscreen: This protects your skin from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet radiation, which is the most significant cause of aged and damaged skin.
Antioxidant: Ultraviolet rays from the sun, and other environmental stresses damage your skin by oxidation. Antioxidants neutralize this oxidation stress helping to protect your skin.
Growth Factor / DNA Repair: This product repairs the skin cells that have been damaged by the sun.
Retinol: This product is a form of Vitamin A. It helps you achieve and maintain a smoother, firmer and more even skin tone.
Specialty Products: These are products designed to solve specific problems like excess pigment or dark circles around your eyes.
