Choosing the correct daily care regimen for your patients' specific skin condition does not have to become an overwhelming task. Determining which ingredients to include can form the foundation for the successful treatment of each of the most common skin conditions. In turn, you and your patients will achieve quick and long-term success. Although each patient's skin is a unique combination of their environment, lifestyle choices, hereditary background, and current product usage, there are specific ingredients that will help minimize the appearance of the more commonly treated skin conditions: acne, hyperpigmentation, aging, and sensitive skin.
