Just when you thought you had it down! (Scroll down for video.)


Dr. Neal Schultz’s 5 Skincare Rules:

1. For beautiful, healthy looking skin, you must be using the 3 key products.
– Antioxidants
– Sunscreen
– Exfoliates

2. Use sunscreen… and use it the correct way.
a. Always put it on before any other product; sunscreens are tested as the first product put on the skin so if you put other products on before the sunscreen, the SPF efficacy decreases.
b. Make sure your sunscreen contains UVA protection.

3. When using multiple skincare products make sure to layer properly.
Put lighter materials on before the heavier materials, so they can absorb properly

4. Know your skin type.
Most women don’t know their skin type and are using the wrong products. Learn what type of skin you have and make sure to use products properly. Ask a professional (or at least read the box!) if you’re not sure.

5. Make sure you are treating sun damage and wrinkles starting in your 20s.
Most sun damage has happened by the time you are 25, start treating it early by following rule #1 while you are in your 20s– it is never too early to treat sun damage and wrinkles.
