Skin Care Products
The aging process affects more than energy and libido. Our skin changes over time, too. Most commercially available skin care products address the needs of younger skin. However, we know skin can stay healthy and youthful as we age, if we use the right ingredients. Just as our research into bioidentical hormone replacement showed us a natural product which restores youthful health, we realized the need for a skin care line made with safe, natural substances. Our spa quality, botanical skin care products clean, tone, and moisturize skin with natural, herbal ingredients for every skin type.

Dr. Maupin’s Skin Care Advice:
The one thing that always surprises me is that my patients want to look beautiful, yet don’t bother to wash their face! The first step in skin care is WASH the old makeup off , or just the daily grime and sweat, before you go to bed and before you apply anything else.
Why? The right skin wash will both cleanse and exfoliate dead cells as well as remove plugs from your pores that makeup leaves…yes! Even Pure Minerals leaves “goo” all over your face!
Tone your skin as well as your body!
The next mystery for me is why everyone “tones” their bodies, eg. Exercise and massage, but they skip toning their skin! The skin is the largest organ of the body and it always needs TONING! I put a sprayer in my Toning products to spray all over my body as well as my face to prepare it for moisturizing.
The last thing you need to know is that moisturizing does not work on top of make-up and dead skin. You MUST clean off dirt, makeup and dead skin, before you moisturize. You are wasting your money on moisturizer, if you don’t cleanse and tone your skin.
Lastly, apply moisturizer to protect your skin from drying both during the day and at night. Life is a Drying experience, and hydration is always important, so drink your eight glasses of water a day and hold it in your skin with moisturizer!
