Know the “Core Four” of Any Skincare Regimen
Imagine you’re preparing for a marathon: you don’t just wake up one day and start running 26.2 miles without any training, do you? Of course not! You spend time fueling your body, putting in work and making sure you’re in the best shape possible for the big race. Your skin health is similar to a marathon in that it doesn’t change overnight. It requires an investment over time and consistent care that fits your specific needs.
Patients come into our practice all the time asking us for quick fix treatments that’ll give them the healthy, glowing skin they’ve always wanted. Treatments may be part of one’s overall skin wellness, but they’re just part of your wellness journey. Your skincare regimen is essential to providing your body the ingredients and care it needs to look and feel your best.
While routines may seem intimidating, our team at Seiler Skin is specially trained on finding products tailored to your skin needs, daily schedule and more. It’s why we’re sharing with you the “core four” categories of products that should be part of every skincare regimen.
Anti-Aging Serum — Our core medical-grade serum is proven to clear damaged collagen fibers that accumulate with age. This clearing of debris allows for a healthy foundation to rebuild collagen and elastin, providing you with the nourishing ingredients that give you a glowing complexion. Anti-aging serums are for everyone regardless of your age to both prevent and treat signs of aging. Cindy’s product pick: Restorative Skin Complex from Alastin Skincare.
Retinol — Botox and filler alone can’t address fine lines and wrinkles, which is why retinol is essential to every regimen! Retinol stimulates cellular turnover and gives the skin a brighter, smoother and more youthful complexion. Candyce’s product pick: Retinol Complete from Revision.
Eye Cream — The skin under and around our eyes is super delicate and needs special care to prevent signs of aging. Eye creams come in all different forms, from addressing undereye circles to reducing skin laxity. The best part? They last for months and don’t require reorders as often as other products! Kristin’s product pick: Restorative Eye Treatment from Alastin Skincare.
SPF with Zinc — Say it with us: sunscreen is essential every day of the year. SPF with zinc protects your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays regardless of whether you’re at the beach or running errands on an overcast afternoon. Alexa’s product pick: UV Replenish Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 from EltaMD.

The greatest part about having a core four regimen is it fits every skin type, daily schedule and budget — in fact, a core four regimen costs the same as your daily cup of Starbucks coffee! The most important aspect of any regimen is consistency. Just as you need to work out regularly to build muscle or save every paycheck to afford a new car, consistency is key to developing and maintaining skin wellness. Once you’ve established a core routine, our team can then work with you to find treatments designed to enhance your overall skin health.
In addition to medical-grade skincare products, you should also look at how different things you use on a daily basis may impact your skin health. From diet to exercise, there are a number of outside factors that contribute to overall skin wellness and should be tailored to your needs. Another great example is makeup — while some brands work for everyone, others are designed for those with more sensitive skin or even allergies. Jill’s personal go-to brand is Kari Gran, which features makeup designed with skin health in mind and full of organic ingredients and essential oils that can work alongside medical-grade products.
The time you take for your skin health should be a form of self-care, not a daily chore. By investing in your skin now, you’ll be able to look and feel your best for years to come. If you’re looking to kickstart a skincare regimen of your own or revamp the one you currently have, our team is here and ready to help!
