Our Providers’ Skincare Regimens

‘Tis the season to talk about… G.R.A.S.S.! What does G.R.A.S.S. have to do with skincare and why is it important? We use the acronym G.R.A.S.S. to help simplify skincare products and explain how to achieve fresh, clean skin.  Allow us to take you through the most important parts of a skincare regimen.

G.R.A.S.S. stands for:
G – Growth Factors
R – Retinols
A – Antioxidants
S – Specialty Products
S – Sunscreen

Some of our wonderful providers will be sharing their skincare regimens every day this week and what parts of G.R.A.S.S. they use…


Dr. Carol Clinton is representing “G – Growth Factors” for G.R.A.S.S. and holding two of the best products that contain “Growth Factors”: SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum and SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex.

Dr. Clinton uses and loves TNS Essential Serum because it is an all-in-one product for skin lightening, repairing damage, and providing a small amount of hydration to her skin. What is Dr. Clinton’s daily skincare regimen?



SkinMedica Facial Cleanser
SkinMedica Lytera
SkinMedica Vitamin C & E Complex
SkinMedica Dermal Repair
Colorescience Sunforgettables SPF 30



Allyson Sterling, PA-C is representing “R – Retinols” for G.R.A.S.S. and holding two of our favorite retinols: SkinMedica Retinol Complex .25% and Retinol Complex 1.0%.

Allyson loves SkinMedica’s Retinol Complex because it is a vitamin A product that increases collagen production and improves skin brightness, tone and texture. She loves that it provides the same wonderful results as traditional Retin-As but without the same amount of skin irritation. It comes in different strengths so it is suitable for almost any skin type and is dosed so there is no room for error in application – just one pump is all you need!

We asked Allyson for her skincare regimen and where she uses her Retinol Complex:

At bedtime…
SkinMedica Facial Cleanser with the Clarisonic Brush
SkinMedica Purifying Toner
SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum
SkinMedica 15% AHA/BHA Moisturizer
