Skin concerns: mild acne, fine lines, anti-aging

• SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense
• SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
• Prescription retinoid

My skin care regimen consists of products to treat mild acne, while providing anti-aging benefits and keeping me looking my best. After cleansing and applying an acne spot treatment each morning, I use SkinMedica Vitamin C+E Complex for antioxidant protection. This is my favorite product to wear because of its silky, smooth consistency. Next, I always apply a daily sunscreen with SPF 30+. My current favorite is SkinMedica’s new Daily Physical Defense. It contains both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, providing broad spectrum UVA/UVB coverage. As it is non-comedogenic and oil free, it is good for my acne prone skin, and light enough for me to wear under make-up. If I am spending the day outdoors in sunny San Diego, I always reapply my sunscreen every couple of hours.
After cleansing my face at night, I apply a pump of TNS Essential Serum to my face and neck. This serum is an all-in-one product, containing NouriCel MD growth factors, as well as antioxidants, peptides, and alpha arbutin. After using this product for over a year, I have definitely noticed that my skin appears brighter and smoother! Next, I apply a pea size amount of prescription retinoid to my entire face. I use prescription strength due to my acne, but I also like this type of product for its anti-aging benefits. The last thing I apply to my entire face is SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer. Because it is light, it is perfect for my skin type. I finish my nightly routine by sweeping Latisse over my upper eyelashes. I love this product! It keeps my lashes looking long and full.
