Dr. Marissa Baca’s Daily Skincare Routine:

Morning Routine

First, I gently cleanse my face, removing impurities and prepping my skin for the day ahead. Next, I apply a few drops of SkinBetter Interfuse Lines, a hyaluronic acid serum to keep my skin plump and hydrated. Next, I apply SkinBetter Alto Advanced Vitamin C serum to combat oxidative stress caused by environmental toxins and pollutants.  I follow that with SkinBetter Mystro Serum to even out pigmentation and texture. Lastly, I apply SkinBetter Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment. This leaves my skin soft, smooth, and ready for the day.

Nightly Routine

In the evenings I perform the same skincare routine, but I also add SkinBetter AlphaRet Overnight cream before my moisturizer to get all the amazing retinol benefits! It’s important to note though that I only add this product to my routine when I am not pregnant or breastfeeding.

Dr. Marissa Baca’s Insider Secret!

SPF, SPF, SPF!!! Every day, even when it is cloudy or in the winter. I recommend using at least mineral broad spectrum suncreen SPF 30. I like to use the SunBetter Tone Smart for a little tinted coverage with SPF 75, to replace foundation. Another tip; when you have a little extra product on your palms after applying it to your face, rub the extra on the back of your hands to get a little benefit there too.
