How To Find The Best Custom Skin Care Regimen? 

When a skin care routine is designed properly, it is a huge scientific puzzle because there are so many things to consider when customizing a skin care routine.  Dermatologists and or STS-trained medical providers will take these issues into consideration when developing a personalized skin care routine for your unique skin and lifestyle.

Each skin care product in a skin care regimen step should help the other skin care products in the skin care regime work better.  The order that skin care products are applied to the skin makes a big difference! Product layering of skin care products needs a lot of scientific consideration to be done properly.
