eye cream

A: It’s never too early to take care of your skin and moisturizing is never a bad thing! Definitely start in your mid-20’s, when your life gets a lot busier and you’re not sleeping as much. If you have sinus trouble, a decongestant eye cream is a great idea!

skincare question

A: You want to start with your thinnest product and end with your thickest. This way everything can penetrate the skin. Your should apply products in this order;
1. Cleanser – cleans and eliminates a dead layer of skin.
2. Toner – prepares the skin, leaving it moist so it can better receive treatment.
3. Treatment/Serum – penetrates the skin, targeting specific skincare concerns.
4. Moisturizer/Cream – seals everything in and hydrates the top layer of skin.

anti-aging skincare from the pros

womens health magazine

Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, M.D. tells Women’s Health magazine that her must-have beauty product is SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. “I use two drops of this antioxidant serum that contains vitamins C and E and ferulic acid. This combination is potent and really helps keep inflammation that you get from the environment and the sun. The inflammation breaks down collagen and elastin, which is the cause of sagging.”
