I used to think that it was enough to wash my face twice a day and wear sunscreen if I was going to be in the sun. What more do you need? Apparently, a lot more. I was introduced to medical grade skincare products in my new job. I always thought all cleansers and moisturizers were basically the same. Some were just more expensive because they were sold in nicer stores, right? Wrong! Medical grade means they have been formulated to address specific concerns and they contain higher concentrations of active ingredients. They have also been tested to demonstrate their efficacy. We’re not talking your Clinique, Lancome, Mary Kay, and all those other lines you can buy at fine department stores and online. The best products are those that are only sold in medical offices, and they are truly worth the extra cost! I can’t live without my growth factor, vitamin C, retinol, sunscreen and eye cream.
