Dreaming of Summer? I am! It’s that time of year when many of us are looking forward to emerging from the isolation of winter to spend time outdoors with friends and family. This is also a great time to focus on a healthy skin routine! In addition to a proper diet and adequate hydration, a routine of clean skin care products can get you ready to emerge this Spring with fresh glowing skin!

NEW TO SANITAS? START WITH THE BASICS.
CLEANSER • SERUM • MOISTURIZER
These are the every day basics that make up the foundation of your skin care routine.
• CLEANSER - removes debris and preps skin for serum.
• SERUM - think of serum like vitamins for your skin. Serums nourish and hydrate skin.
• MOISTURIZER - hydrates skin and locks in moisture.
Note: Of these three, moisturizer is the only one I consider potentially optional. Depending on the time of year and the hydrating-effect of the serum, moisturizer is not always needed.
FOR NORMAL AND DRY SKIN:
LEMON CREAM CLEANSER
A citrus-infused enriching everyday cleanser.
Removes surface debris without stripping or dehydrating skin. Fresh lemon scent!
VITA RICH SERUM
A hydrating, reparative serum. Contains a protective blend of Vitamins E, D, C, E, K, and essential fatty acids. A little goes a long way! Very hydrating, great for dry, winter skin.
Highly concentrated, deeply nourishing. Contains a blend of avocado and shea butters, with vitamins and hydrating Hyaluronic Acid.
FOR NORMAL, COMBINATION, AND OILY SKIN:
ENZYMATIC FOAMING CLEANSER
A balancing formula of natural fruit acids, enzymes, and gentle foaming agents lifts surface impurities without irritating or drying.
Lightweight. Reduces congestion, brightens dark spots, and balances skin. Contains Zinc, Vitamin C, and Astragalus Root extract.
A lightweight moisturizer that tones and nourishes the skin while keeping oil under control. Matte finish.
Note: You can mix and match! You don't have to stick with one product line. I keep both Lemon Cream Cleanser and Enzymatic Foaming Cleanser on hand, as well as a treatment cleanser (I like Vitamin C Lactic Cleanser) to use before exfoliating. While Weightless Serum is my go-to, I break out the Vita-Rich serum during dry winter months...
READY TO TAKE YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE UP A NOTCH?
BOOST RESULTS WITH ALPHA-HYDROXY ACIDS
Alpha-hydroxy Acids (AHAs) exfoliate by dissolving dead skin cells, increasing cell turnover and triggering collagen regeneration.
AHAs make your skin more receptive to hydration, and even those with dry or sensitive skin can benefit from regular use of a quality AHA product, which is less likely to irritate than manual exfoliation.
CLICK HERE to learn more about AHAs.
NEW TO AHAs?
Start with a low concentration 5% glycolic acid solution 2-3 nights per week.
ALREADY USING AHAs?
Increase your concentration for improved results.
Slowly work up from a 5% to a 10%, and then a 15% GLYCOLIC ACID SOLUTION. When your current product no longer has the same “tingling” feeling, that is a sign that it’s time to increase your concentration.
A FEW CLASSIC PRODUCTS YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS.
My absolute favorite combination - BRIGHTENING PEEL PADS and VITA C SERUM. This duo provides an instant facial and is my go-to routine before a night out or special event. After cleansing, swab face and neck with a Brightening Peel Pad. Follow with 3 drops Vita C Serum for an instant glow!
Vita C Serum is also a great reparative serum for regular use day or night, containing 30% Vitamin C with essential fatty acids for potent antioxidant protection and instant hydration to minimize the signs of aging. With Vita C Serum - a little goes a LONG WAY! I generally use 2-3 drops at a time, not even 1/2 pump!
Boost hydration for dry winter skin with HYALURONIC CONCENTRATE. Add 1-2 pumps to your regular moisturizer for a hydrating boost that protects skin from dry winter air. do not head to the ski hill without this!
