How do you achieve your best skin in 2019? You’ll be surprised at how dramatically these simple skincare habits can improve your skin.

Improve Your Products

Are you still using drugstore products on your skin? We strongly recommend the use of a comprehensive and integrated medical grade product line. These products are designed for your skin and created through careful scientific research. Medical grade products often have stronger concentrations of crucial ingredients that you can find over-the-counter. Our estheticians would love to help you find the right products for your skin.

Our medical grade products can be customized to your skin type and concerns. Got acne? We’ll help you find products to clear up blemishes. Aging got you down? Let’s find products designed to smooth skin and slow the hands of time.

Dr. Clinton carries the Obagi line of skincare products. We’ve found that this line to be very effective and are proud to offer these products to our patients. Changing products is an easy swap that can dramatically transform your skin. You probably won’t spend any additional time on your skin, but you will see positive changes.

Use Sun Protection

Make sunscreen a year-round habit. Dangerous UV rays are present every single day: rainy, sunny, or cloud covered. Using sun protection can keep these rays from damaging your skin and accelerating the signs of aging. For daily use, use a broad-spectrum SPF 15+ product. If you’ll be in the sun, up the SPF and reapply every 2 hours.

Slather your sunscreen on. Most people don’t use enough, and that means that they aren’t getting the maximum levels of protection. You need a nickel-sized dollop for the face alone, and a shot glass full of sunscreen for a full body application.

Be Consistent

Remember, consistency is key to achieving the best results for your skin. Give your skin five minutes extra every day, rather than days and trying to pack everything in once a month. Little, consistent actions yield big results.
