Clear Skin, Clear Goals – Why a Customized Routine Is Necessary

Make it easy for you to buy cleansers, serums, and moisturizers to help you create a daily routine. However, while these products can be good enough for normal skin without any cosmetic issues, when you have certain skin conditions, you should resort to a customized medical-grade skincare routine. Reaching the perfect skin glow seems like a never-ending battle. Supermarkets and department stores 

About 43 percent of people have experienced some sort of skin problem in the past year. In many cases, they used the wrong skincare routine, which did not fix their issues. This is why Dr. Ostad recommends a customized program, as it can help you get to the root of the problem faster.

Benefits of a Customized Skincare Routine

Here are the reasons for using a customized medical-grade skincare routine: 

  • Better Effect

When you choose random skincare products off a supermarket shelf, there is a good chance that they will not be the most beneficial for your skin. Every person has different skin needs, so a cream that works wonders for someone else may not have the same effect on you. A customized skincare routine is made with your skin condition in mind, ensuring a better effect. 

  • Fewer Product Interactions

When you follow a skincare regimen that may not be customized for your skin, the chances of a negative interaction can be very high. Not only can these products themselves react with one another, but they may also cause negative reactions to your skin. By opting for a customized skincare routine, you reduce the chances of problematic interactions, as the products are made to complement one another. Medical-grade skincare products contain a high concentration of active ingredients that are sold at a lower concentration in department stores and supermarkets. 

  • Simplified Routine

In an attempt to obtain the perfect skin, many individuals go for multi-step skincare regimens that seem to have no effect in the long run. A customized skincare program simplifies the process to only a few products that are rich in the right nutrients. This eliminates confusion and reduces the time you normally spend on applying products. 

  • The Process Is Set for You

With a customized skincare routine, women and men no longer have to worry about choosing random topical products. For instance, if you have hyperpigmentation, then Dr. Ostad may recommend the Hyperpigmentation Regimen Set. Since every product in the routine is provided in the set, you should not worry about skipping a step. 

What Products Should You Use?

When it comes to products to use, the over-the-counter market gives you plenty of options. You can get moisturizers, serums, cleansers, and scrubs for any type of skin, regardless of your age. The main problem is that these skincare products have a one-size-fits-all formula, which may not work with your specific skin condition. This is why about 10 percent of the population has some reaction or undesired effects from off-the-shelf cosmetics. 

To obtain the results you want, you should choose products that have been proven to treat your specific issue. Each skin concern is seen as a medical problem, which is why we recommend our medical-grade skincare. These products are not only backed up by science, but they also have a higher concentration of active ingredients. 

For the most part, you should use skincare products that fight your specific issue. For example, if you have acne, then you should use something like the Acne Regimen Set. On the other hand, women and men with redness may benefit more from the Rosacea/Redness set. And for hyperpigmentation or spots, the Advanced Luma Cream may be more beneficial. This is why a consultation is necessary – to determine what product works best for you.
