How are you doing with those New Year’s resolutions? Did you make any? 

No worries — it’s never too late to turn a new leaf, and when it comes to taking proper care of your skin, it’s never too early to start.

No matter your age, if you want to improve or maintain the skin on your face, it makes sense to use the most high-quality skin care products available.

Is It Time to Throw Away Your Old Creams and Lotions?

Most consumer skin care brands do a good job of keeping your skin moisturized, and that’s important. However, if you are trying to address acne, sun damage, or signs of aging, or you merely desire a brighter complexion, you might want to look into medical-grade skin care products.

Also, be sure to check the expiration dates on all your skin care products. While using them may not cause harm, the ingredients break down over time and lose their effectiveness.

What Are the Advantages of Medical-Grade Skin Care Products?

Lotions, creams, gels, and serums come in many different price ranges, and unless they are formulated with scientifically tested, medical-grade ingredients, you can expect similar results from most of them.

Simply put, professional products endorsed by cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists provide the most protection and produce far better results than those available at the drugstore or beauty supply shop. 

These anti-aging and preventative products can effectively:

  • Brighten a dull complexion
  • Protect aging skin 
  • Minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles 
  • Address hyperpigmentation
  • Improve skin texture and minimize the visibility of  acne
  • Smooth skin damaged by the sun 
  • Preserve and enhance the effects of professional skin care procedures
