Skincare And It's Importance

We often don’t know the importance of having a young and healthy looking skin until we reach our late 30s and 40s. That’s when we realize how important it is to have great skin and looking younger.

We make the mistake of falling for over the counter products and big brands of the department stores. We spend so much money in hopes that they work but lets face it , they really dont and it’s just a waste of money. They promise to do a lot of things in jar but we all know there’s no such thing really.

I have been there until I realized I have to see a doctor and do it the right way. I was suffering from acne scares and just dead looking skin. No facial was helping me . After months of research I found doctor Maryam Hekmat at the VIP Spa Clinic at Rancho Bernardo.

Doctor Hekmat explained to me the procedure of getting rid of my acne scares and my options. Also the products to use in order to bring life back to my skin and have a vibrant glow and healthy looking skin. SkinMedica did magic for me. After just a short period of time I noticed my skin start glowing , my dark spots and acne scars were gone and now I am so happy with my skin that I do not even want to wear foundation. If I use any make up it will only be some lipstick , eye shadow, concealer and mascara and i’m all set. I’m planning to continue seeing Dr Hekmat and I hope I can be any help for those who are having the same problem I did. Mentioning my name you get a special discount off your treatment.

Products I use :

Everyday I wash my face with SkinMedica AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser

SkinMedica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser combines alpha and beta hydroxy acids to remove dead cells and other impurities from your skin to diminish fine lines and illuminate your complexion. Botanical extracts of bilberry and licorice reduce hyperpigmentation while panthenol and lavender extracts tone and soothe inflammation. Mildly astringent citrus oils minimize large pores for a radiant and refreshed appearance.

Then use the following for day and night time :

2.0 Lytera Pigment correcting serum

SkinMedica Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum addresses the appearance of stubborn discoloration, making even skin tones possible for all skin types. Powered by niacinamide and tetrapeptide-30, this skin brightening formula prevents the appearance of new spots while a marine extract blend supports a healthy skin barrier.

TNS recovery complex

SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex® utilizes growth factors to visibly smooth, tone and firm skin. Formulated with a Tissue Nutrient System (TNS), this anti-aging serum targets blood vessels, reduces inflammation, encourages cell growth and casts a healthy, youthful glow on your skin. Amino acids and antioxidants prevent free radical damage and signs of premature aging.

Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum SPF 34 Sunscreen

SkinMedica Total Defense Repair SPF 34 protects skin from sun damage and prevents aging due to chronic exposure to infrared light. Using an advanced antioxidant complex, this restorative formula goes beyond UVA and UVB protection, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the skin's texture and evening skin tone. Slightly tinted, this lightweight formula also provides sheer coverage for a smooth, polished complexion.

Retinol Complex 0.5

SkinMedica Age Defense Retinol Complex 0.5 enhances the skin's texture to promote a brighter, more youthful complexion. Formulated for skin tolerant to retinol treatments, it stimulates collagen production and enhances faster cell renewal to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Algae extract ensures skin is soft, hydrated and protected against free-radical damage.


SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator blends five types of hydrators that immediately go to work replenishing your skin's hyaluronic acid. Ideal for all skin types, this hydrating serum balances moisture levels to smooth and soften rough texture, lines and wrinkles. Free of fragrance, it boosts the overall health of your skin and provides a staggering eight hours of continuous moisture. The humectants draw moisture from the air and deliver it straight to the areas of your skin that need it the most. It's so potent that it almost immediately begins to smooth the appearance of furrows. 

Dermal Repair Cream

Because a truly all-encompassing hydration treatment takes some extra tender loving care, SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream is one skin staple that offers anti-aging and moisturizing benefits in spades. Specially crafted to deliver optimal results during daily use, it instantly replenishes your skin with the necessary moisture it needs. All at once helping to repair sun-damaged skin and reduce age spots, this dense cream doesn't fall short on skin-loving antioxidants and vitamins. 

Deeply penetrating the surface of your skin with vitamins C and E, while retinol, hyaluronic acid and omega-3 fatty acids work in synergy to reverse the signs of time, this moisturizing treatment is just the trick your skin-care regimen's been lacking. Offering the same benefits as a handful of essentials yet delivering it in one, potent cream, it's bound to become a key player in your day-to-day rotation.
