Detroit Mom partnered with the amazing people at ATD MedSpa to bring you this post. All opinions are our own.

There’s no way around the harsh truth: we’re all getting older. Our environment and constant sun exposure can result in premature aging. Before you freak out, there are simple and effective things you can do on a daily basis to prevent natural signs of aging. One of those things is to get started on an effective skin care routine. But with so many products on the shelves, how is someone supposed to know which ones are right for them? This is where ATD MedSpa comes to the rescue! Their staff of professional aestheticians can help you find the perfect medical-grade products to start a simple skin care regimen that will help beat the signs of aging and keep your skin looking great!

Why Do I Need Medical-Grade Products?

The professionals at ATD MedSpa encourage patients to invest in medical-grade skin care products. Not only are these products backed by scientific research, but they offer ingredients that will penetrate deeper than the top layer of skin. When you meet with an aesthetician at ATD MedSpa, they will be able to recommend products that will work with your skin rather than having to guess and check over-the-counter products from the store. 

Four Simple Steps

Aestheticians live by the rules to “cleanse, nourish, hydrate, and protect.” 

Cleanse – The first step to every skincare regimen is cleansing the skin. Using a cleanser removes surface debris such as dirt and dead skin and prepares your skin for future products and treatments. Having clean skin will help the next steps do a better job and penetrate your skin more easily. Use a gentle cleanser twice daily (we love our Corktown or Beacon Park cleansers). While there are many different types of cleansers out there, they aren’t all the same. It is important to find the right cleanser for your specific skin type. 

Nourish – Feed your skin with a Vitamin C serum to infuse skin with antioxidants and stimulate collagen production (we love our Belle Isle Vitamin C serum!). 

Hydrate – Bring moisture back to your skin with a hyaluronic acid for improved skin structure and water retention.

Protect – The last step is to protect your skin using an SPF moisturizer to protect from the harsh sun and help skin from discoloration. And yes, you need SPF every day, even when it’s cloudy or during the winter! 

Other Skin Care Products

You might have seen other skin care products and wondered what they are for. Here’s a quick cheat sheet for some other products:

Toner – restores skin’s pH level.

Serums –  Protects skin against free radicals. Serums are high in antioxidants to help fight visible signs of aging and repair the skin.

Moisturizers – helps protect the skin barrier and reduce dryness that can be caused by environmental stressors.
