Where to save: Purposeful spending

By: Megan Ahmed


We get it, the majority of patients do not have limitless funds, neither do we! This is why purposeful spending is so important!

Do we use and recommend medical grade skincare products? Of course, but we also recognize aspects of one’s skincare routine where drugstore products can be just as beneficial for a fraction of the cost.

Where to save:

+ SPF - as long as you’re using SPF 30 or higher we’re happy.

+ Cleanser - take this with a grain of salt as we ride or die for some of our medical grade cleansers, but if we have the option to put someone on a great antioxidant serum or a cleanser, we’re going the serum route.

+ Retinoid - if you are able to tolerate a prescription retinoid why not have you’re insurance pay for it!

Where to spend:

+ Antioxidant serum

+ Moisturizer

+ Eye cream
