Here are our favourite skincare products that work for most skin types.

We know how disorienting a densely populated skincare market can be. When you’re ready to revamp your skincare regimen, a single google search like “great Canadian skincare products” can quickly leave you overwhelmed and unsure of where to begin. What do we suggest? Talk to an expert! Start with a consultation, and let a skincare specialist from our Beauty Nurse®️ team guide you through the process. But in the meantime, here are some products that are tried, tested, and proven to work on most skin types.

The Top 5 Skincare Products to try in 2021

Not all products will work for your skin. Some skin types are especially sensitive, or prone to breakouts–while some people notice their skin gets dry even in a humid climate. We recommend pairing these multi-tasking products with a personalized regimen that also tackles your individual skincare concerns:

1. TIZO® Ultra Zinc Body & Face Sunscreen

Why it’s great: This sunscreen is sheer and light so it looks lovely on any skin tone. Tizo Ultra Zinc has a soft finish that works well under makeup, looks great on Zoom calls, and moisturizes your skin. Apply it liberally in the morning and throughout the day, even when it’s cloudy outside. Those UV rays are sneaky! Fun Fact: This product is reef friendly, so you can use it with a good conscience. It doesn’t contain any dyes, filters, fragrances, or preservatives.

Ingredient Highlights: The 20% Zinc Oxide formula calms and soothes skin, so it’s suitable for use on sensitive skin or following a skin rejuvenation procedure.

2. ZO® Skin Health Gentle Cleanser

Why it’s great: This product gently removes buildup and impurities so your skin can breathe, without leaving any residue behind or stripping your skin of essential oils. This cleanser leaves any skin type feeling refreshed, renewed, and gently hydrated. Remove makeup, use it for daily cleansing, and keep your skin breathing easy.

Ingredient Highlights: Sodium lauroyl oat amino acids cleanse your skin without dehydrating, while botanical extracts calm and provide skin with antioxidant protection.

3. SkinMedica® HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator

Why it’s great: This hydrating product nourishes your skin with essential moisture and reinforces your skin’s natural moisture barrier. While many moisturizers just sit on the surface of your skin, this hydrator goes beyond the traditional role of a moisturizer by smoothing lines and wrinkles, supporting your skin’s ability to maintain moisture, and rejuvenating tone and texture.

Ingredient Highlights: Hyaluronic Acid is an essential ingredient for gorgeous, glowing skin. Results last beyond the day-to-day with long-term improvement to skin tone, texture, and smoothness.

4. Skinbetter science® Alto Defense Serum™

Why it’s great: This science-backed serum is an epic multitasker, evening redness and tone as it neutralizes free radicals and provides comprehensive antioxidant protection. It also brightens skin for a more radiant appearance. Start small if you’re new to this product and try using it every three days until you know your skin is ready for everyday use.

Ingredient Highlights: 12 Antioxidants share the stage with Vitamin C and E to defend against free radicals and transform your skin.

5. SkinMedica® Facial Cleanser

Why it’s great: Another brilliant cleanser that’s great for everyone: whether you’re prone to acne, concerned about aging, or struggling with sensitive skin. Wash away your troubles, your makeup and any environmental pollutants as you gently hydrate and refresh your skin. This calming cleansing experience will give your skin a new start every day. SkinMedica Facial Cleanser is highly recommended as a staple in your skincare routine.

Ingredient Highlights: Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract helps protect your skin from free radical damage as Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) helps bond the outer layers of your skin with essential moisture.
