SkinEssentials is a professional skin care store that specializes in the sale of non-prescription topical products. The store has been in business since 2001 and is provided as a convenience for the registered patients of Dr. Revis. Unlike a drugstore or department store, the products for sale have been chosen by Dr. Revis for their safety and effectiveness. Many of the products are hypoallergenic, often preservative and fragrance free, and ideal for use by individuals with sensitive skin, eczema, or a history of allergies. SkinEssentials strives to choose the best skin care products from around the world for our customers. We believe no one company has all the answers, so we choose the best products from multiple companies to edit the choices available to our customers. Finally, we believe in designing a skin care program that is simple, effective, and affordable. SkinEssentials is staffed by two licensed estheticians trained to educate and assist patients of Dr. Revis with their skin care.
When selecting a sunscreen, make sure the label says: BROAD SPECTRUM: The words "broad spectrum” means that the sunscreen can protect your skin from both types of harmful UV rays — the UVA rays and the UVB rays. SPF 30 or higher: The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that you select a sunscreen with an SPF rating of 30 or higher. WATER RESISTANT: Dermatologists also recommend that you look for the words "water resistant.” This tells you that the sunscreen will stay on wet or sweaty skin for a while before you need to reapply. Water resistance lasts either 40 or 80 minutes. Not all sunscreens offer water resistance. How you apply your sunscreen also affects how well it protects you. Apply your cream to all exposed areas. Avoid the use of sprays which are difficult to apply evenly. Don't forget to reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours when outdoors
