Start Your Skincare Journey With 3 Easy Steps!

Skincare sounds complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. Don’t worry! We’re here to help you get started on the right track. Skincare routines sound a little daunting, but they can be as easy as ABC!

What does ABC stand for? According to Atlanta esthetician Lauren Siso, the ABC method is how she best introduces new patients to skincare. The letters A, B and C represent the three ingredients that every single person should use daily to protect your skin!

Let’s take a look at each of these!

What are the ingredients that you need?

  • A. Vitamin A (Retinol)
  • B. Broad Spectrum SPF (to protect your skin barrier from sun damage)
  • C. Vitamin C (because it’s powerful and great for the skin!)


So how can these ingredients help me?

Step 1) Vitamin A:

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A, which is great for anti-aging, acne, and brightening/evening your skin tone. Start with Vitamin A and you’ll be on your way to a brighter, clearer complexion. Vitamin A is an antioxidant that works to reverse the signs of aging and research has shown it can even reduce the size of wrinkles. It also helps restore firmness and bounce back to skin which has lost elasticity over time. Retinol is also an antioxidant that can help protect the skin from free radicals in sun damage! Look for Vitamin A in serums or creams.
