You learn a thing or two when you’ve been in the aesthetics industry for more than a decade. Amy Henderson, RN, BSN and CR aesthetics™ superstar, knows that a comprehensive skin care routine involves more than semi-annual BOTOX® Cosmetic or JUVÉDERM® treatments. From morning to night, discover how Amy Henderson makes skin health a priority with medical-grade products.
Q: As a busy professional, how do you make time to take care of your skin?
A: It’s a priority for me, so I find the time – most of the time. When I find myself to be a little too busy or too lazy, I reset with a mild to moderate SkinMedica peel.
Q: What are your go-to products for reducing and preventing wrinkles?
A: Retinol and Revision Skincare Intellishade® sunscreen are the two that I can’t live without.
Q: What are the most important things we can do to maintain healthy skin?
A: There are three: Use a topical Vitamin C in the morning, a retinol at nighttime and a daily sunscreen.
Q: What is your daytime skin routine?
A: I start with the Obagi Nu-Derm® System for normal to dry skin. In addition, I apply Hydrating Serum, Vitamin C Lotion 30%, D•E•J eye cream, Nectifirm® and their fabulous Intellishade tinted sunscreen, mentioned above (all from Revision Skincare).
Q: What is your nighttime skin routine?
A: There’s a lot of crossover between my daytime and nighttime routine. I use the Obagi Nu-Derm System for normal to dry skin, which incorporates a prescription strength tretinoin (Retin-A). I follow this with the D•E•J eye cream, Nectifirm and – this is the differentiator – the Obagi Hydrate® Facial Moisturizer.
