3 Best Medical-Grade Skincare Products

Updated: Dec 30, 2021

Clinically Proven Skin Care

For us moms, teachers, and medical providers doing for others, skincare is self care!

I was a mental health provider for 23 years and often neglected myself. Eventually, I took a workshop on self-care for providers and learned, yes, there are many forms of self-care beyond diet and exercise... I had never considered skincare as self-care! I had student loans to pay off so I was frugal and used drug store brands.. sometimes... along with my sometimes skincare routine. With all the stress accumulated by taking care of others, our skin takes a beating. For aging skin and hectic schedules, adding clinically proven skincare products to our skincare routine, especially based on skincare research, offers us much needed moments of self-care and promise!

Medical-Grade Skincare Products. What Is Medical Grade?

The concentration of medical grade skincare product formulas stand apart because they generally have been tested for effectiveness and more than likely use purer, stabilized ingredients that won't degrade over time. Over-the-counter drug store brands are not able to make medical claims for the treatment of skin conditions. Also, OTC beauty products generally only penetrate the first layer of your skin, meaning drug store skincare products have a lower penetration value; they sit on the surface of the skin, while medical-grade skin care products are formulated to penetrate the skin and affect deeper layers. For instance, skincare injectables treat fine lines and wrinkles vs. OTC creams help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Medical-Grade Skincare Care Lines

I'm here to demystify skincare lingo! >> science-based skincare, science backed skincare and evidence-based skincare are typically synonymous with professional strength skincare and medical-grade skincare. Most science backed skincare lines with medical-grade skincare ingredients have verified, clinical studies using a double-blind placebo method to back up their claims.
