“My favorite product is Elta MD UV Clear tinted sunscreen, as sunscreen is the most important element of our skin care regimen. This product is gentle on acne and rosacea prone skin with broad spectrum mineral protection. My other two favorites are SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF vitamin C serum for the morning to protect and even out skin tone, and La Roche Posay Effaclar Adapalene Gel for the evening, which is a retinoid great for both acne and anti-aging.”
