Product Resistance

From the Colorado Dermatology Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

So here’s another “Daily Do” from your friendly local dermatologist.

All right, so I’m often asked what are the best products for your skin, and do you actually develop a resistance to them? And it’s a great question because our bodies adapt, and we know this, everything we do in life, our bodies are trying to adapt to prepare us for what’s next. And your skin, well, that’s no different. So, do your bodies develop a resistance to products that you use? Absolutely, and it’s one of the reasons why I kind of vary up what I do for my skin, especially with the anti-aging market.

So, I will almost always use Vitamin A. That’s one of my staples. And there’s lots of different types of Vitamin A is out there. There’s even an over-the-counter type of Vitamin A called Differin that is marketed mostly for acne that’s phenomenal. So a Vitamin A is my staple. But then I will rotate between some glycolic acids or some salicylic acids or some Vitamin C’s to give me a little bit of variety. I never like doing the same thing every single day, and my skin tends to respond better to it. Now there are some things that I do for my skin every day, and that is wearing a sunscreen if I’m going to be out and about in the sun, and seeking shade, and trying to eat well, and exercising, and trying to take care of my mind.

So there are some staples. But in terms of products, give them a little bit of rotation, give them a little bit of variety, and see what happens with your skin.
