Hypoallergenic Skin Care Tips from the Dermatologist
Here in Northern California, my patients want truly natural skin care options for their personal care choices. I’ve practiced dermatology here for almost 30 years, and I’ve become an expert at combining dermatologist-grade hypoallergenic skin care with natural skin care.
This rare combination is important because using some of the popular, natural ingredients marketed for skin care can lead you or your family to develop lifelong allergic reactions. Knowing how to select natural products that are hypoallergenic, too, is the smart choice; you get the best of both worlds – natural and dermatologically-sound skin care.
Over the years, I’ve developed products specifically for the thousands of patients in my practice with skin allergies or who are at high risk because of genetic susceptibility. I look at skin care from this vantage point as I’ve treated the consequences of newly-developed, allergic contact dermatitis daily. I know what ingredients should be avoided and what concentration of lovely, but less taunting, botanical essences can be used to give you a plant’s essence with a lower risk of allergic reaction.
You need product options for the 4 key steps of your complete skin care routine: Cleanse, Correct, Hydrate and Protect
My product line provides truly natural options for the 3 base steps: Cleanse, Hydrate and Protect. My natural products are made with organic ingredients, too.
Correcting products often include pharmaceutical-grade formulations, and I would not call those truly natural, even if some of the ingredients are leaning in that direction.
These products are often used strategically, and in small amounts, so that you don’t sacrifice the overall goal of going green and natural, even if you use pharmaceutical-grade actives to treat your skin problems.
This includes products to treat problems such as: acne, rosacea, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, age keratosis, and more.
Building a basic skin care routine from truly natural products and adding in strategic, correcting actives where and when you need them is smart skin care. Here are my natural skin care products that you can use to build truly natural and hypoallergenic, dermatologist approved skin care.
My natural product collection highlights include:
Booster and beard oils both Correct and Hydrate:
I’m dedicated to bridging truly-natural skin care with dermatologically-sound choices – both for my patients and my family.
Get the best of both of these priorities, and then add in professional-level, correcting products with pharmaceutical-grade, active ingredients, and you’ve got a really smart skin care routine.
