Trying on Products


There are so many dermatology products currently on the market and advertised on social media that the average consumer can get lost in the shuffle. My solution would be to bring in the concept of “”Capsule Wardrobe” into dermatology… AKA “Capsule Skincare”

What is “capsule” skincare?

Capsule wardrobe is a term coined by Susan Faux to emphasize a FEW key set of clothes that never go out of style no matter the fashion arena. Skincare should be no different… rather than a medicine cabinet littered with numerous products, focus on some key agents that will give you those skin goals you have been hoping for.

What should be in my Capsule Skincare?

  1. Gentle Facewash– In dermatology, we always like to keep it simple. Mild+easily removes makeup and does not strip your skin of necessary oils.
  2. Serum– Depending on your skin type and your skin concerns, a serum can be instrumental due to its potent additives.
  3. SPF– Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!
  4. Moisturizer– No matter the skin type you should definitely have a moisturizer. This can be either in addition to your SPF of something that comes along with it.
  5. Active agent– Depending on your dermatology concern, this is the prescription acne tx, anti-aging tc, or hyper pigmentation tx- for example: Almost every dermatology will have a Rx for Tretinoin or Tazorac that they use every night. (avoid if pregnant)

One size doesn’t fit all, so why use the same dermatology products as everyone else? Know your skin type!

How long do I have to use these to see a benefit?

Patience is a virtue, and this holds true even more for dermatology and your skin. Given that you are not developing an allergy, be consistent with the products for at least 3-6 months to see improvement.
