Age: 47

Skin Type: Dry

Favorite Treatment: Botox- I suffer from “Resting B**** Face” so botox has been a game-changer for me. I am a huge fan of Ultherapy. It’s great for a lift now, and even better for the preventative aging aspect. Look good tomorrow, and great in 5 years!

Favorite Product: Intellishade (Revisions Skincare)! Patients always compliment me on my skin and coverage. Really don’t wear makeup! After my anti-aging products in the morning I put on Intellishade for coverage and sun protection, then a little bronzer and eyeliner and that is it.

Skin Care Regimen:

I am a self confessed skin care junkie! In addition to my morning and nighttime ritual I use COq10 sheet masks a couple times a week and I love the Tony Moly Pore Egg from Sephora. It heats up and emulsifies blackheads.

AM

  1. Cleanse with AHA/BHA Facial Cleanser (SkinMedica)
  2. Rejuvenative Toner
  3. TNS Essential Serum- I use it on my face, neck and chest
  4. HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator- 1 pump to face and neck. I always get it all the way around my eyes too
  5. TNS Illuminating eye- I pat it around my eyes with m y fingertips
  6. Neckletage (Topix) – This goes on my neck and chest
  7. Intellishade Revision Skincare- This is my FAVORITE sunscreen and moisturizer in one

PM

  1. Cleanse with  a cleansing oil- I use this in the evening because it takes every bit of makeup off without being irritating or harsh
  2. TNS Essential Serum- I use it on my face, neck and chest
  3. Retinol Complex- I use the SkinMedica 1.0% – 1 pump to face, neck
  4. HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator- 1 pump to face and neck. I always get it all the way around my eyes too
  5. Dermal Repair – It’s a multivitamin for your skin. I use it on my face, neck and chest nightly
  6. Latisse- Because who doesn’t want longer, thicker, darker lashes

Tips or Tricks? 

I always leave my skin a little damp after cleansing and toning. This helps my product go further. Also, I like to keep my eye serum in the refrigerator. It feels great in the morning and helps with puffy eyes.
