Skincare Simplified


The most common question our Aesthetician, Kelly, gets is: “What products are essential and in what order should I apply them?” Today, we are simplifying skincare to help you create a personalized regime that has all the right products, in the right order.


Start with a cleanser to remove any oil build-up and sweat from sleeping. The AHA/BHA cleanser has the perfect balance of chemical and physical exfoliants to buff away dead skin allowing products to penetrate properly!

Next, you want to apply a treatment serum. A targeted treatment serum helps to focus on a specific skin concern. TNS+ is SkinMedica’s most advanced anti-aging serum combining next-generation growth factors with an innovative peptide complex.

Looking to target something different? Neck Correct Cream will help target and prevent neck wrinkles! Our staff has also loved using the extra product on the backs of the hands to prevent early signs of aging!

Hydration is critical to a dewy complexion. Applying a hydrating moisturizer with help seal in all the goodness you applied in the previous steps! HA5 from SkinMedica is our favorite hydration product. The hyaluronic acid in this product supports the skin’s natural ability to retain moisture resulting in radiant, rejuvenated tone and texture.

ZO Skincare

We can’t say it enough, apply your sunscreen! Sunscreen is the #1 way to prevent premature aging! Total Defense & Repair is a favorite as it will protect your skin while supporting the skin’s ability to restore itself.

Start with a cleanser. It is important to remove any buildup from the day and any leftover sunscreen! The ZO Gentle Cleanser is gentle enough to use every day without the worry of irritation.

Next, use some complexion pads to decongest the pores further. The ZO Complexion Renewal pads are perfect for those battling acne because they remove excess surface oil in addition to pore-clogging debris.

Time for serums! A targeted treatment serum helps to focus on specific skin concerns. One of our favorite anti-aging serums is the ZO Firming Serum. This is a mild and lightweight formula that reinforces skin health, elasticity, and firmness.

Next, apply additional treatments to target your specific concerns. Depending on your goals, you might want a product to focus on acne, brightness, hydration, or anti-aging. The Wrinkle + Texture Repair is a high-potency retinol that restores natural hydration, visibly improving the appearance of wrinkles and refining skin texture – and it comes in travel size, too!

Last, use a growth-factor product! Growth Factor will help your skin replenish and repair itself while you sleep. We love the ZO Growth Factor Serum because it’s a lightweight gel that feels soft on the skin while still dismissing the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles.
