#BeyondTheSkinCareBasics





A moisturizer, cleanser and sunscreen are considered foundational products of a skin care routine. They support the maintenance of healthy skin - and we all appreciate that healthy skin is ultimately the benchmark.


Beyond the basics, skin care ingredients and formulations can help ease exfoliation, improve radiance and provide antioxidant protection. Our clinic offers high-quality, science-backed skin care products delivering benefits that have been clinically proven and are safe to use. Here are some of our top picks in our collection:


Glycolic acid

As an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), glycolic acid delivers exfoliating effects. When used appropriately, this sugar cane-derivative reduces the appearance of fine lines and large pores, improves overall skin texture and supports a more even skin tone.


We Love:

  • SkinCeuticals Glycolic Brightening Renew Overnight

  • SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense

Hyaluronic acid

Naturally synthesized and found in our bodies, hyaluronic acid retains moisture at the skin surface. It helps to keep the skin supple and smooth, and reduces visible signs of skin aging such as fine lines and dullness.


We Love:

  • SkinCeuticals H.A. Intensifier

  • SkinCeuticals B5 Masque

Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid)

Applied topically, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that provides antioxidant protection. It helps to reduce uneven pigmentation, combat the damaging effects of UV radiation and promote collagen production - all to support a more radiant and brighter complexion.


We love:

  • SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic

  • SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF

  • SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF (for acne-prone skin)


For us, it’s about curating a skin care routine that is safe and effective for patients depending on their skin type and goals. In combination with clinical treatments, a physician-directed regimen can provide synergistic, sustainable and transformative benefits over time.

Not sure which ingredient or formulation is the right one for you? We recommend a cosmetic consultation to review skin care products that can be built into your routine, one step at a time.
