Establish a Skincare Routine

Your skincare regimen shouldn’t take longer than an episode of Modern Family. In fact, you should be able complete it in the time it takes for one -- maybe two -- commercial breaks. “We recommend that every patient use a high-quality cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen,” says Chasin. Depending on the type and condition of your skin, you can add treatment products like retinoids (for wrinkles and acne), antioxidants (to prevent sun damage and aging) or an acne fighter (like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid). “The goal is to keep things as simple as possible so you have an easy regimen that addresses your skin care issues,” says Chasin. “Sometimes you can wind up over treating and doing more harm than good.” Chasin suggests finding one skincare line you love and stick with it. “While it’s okay to mix and match products from different lines, products from a single line have been formulated to work together,” he says.
