A daily skin care routine is an important step towards happy and healthy skin. Taking good care of your skin also prevents premature aging and helps you maintain a youthful glow. Morning and evening regimens are important, but it also helps to keep a few items handy throughout the day. In this blog post, Dr. Donald Hause, a trusted Sacramento plastic surgery specialist, discusses the best skin care items to carry in your purse.
Everyone needs a little Vitamin D in their life, but too much sun exposure can have negative effects on your skin. Here are a few items to always have on hand to put a healthy barrier between you and the sun:
- Sunscreen – find a moisturizer with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect your face, neck and chest.
- Lip balm – don’t forget your lips when it comes to UVA protection. Both Obagi and Jane Iredale offer a variety of lip balms and tints with UVA protection.
- Sunglasses – the delicate skin around your eyes is best protected by a combination of sunscreen and sunglasses that can block harmful rays.
- Hand lotion with UVA protection replenishes moisture while preventing the dark spots and fine lines that often come with aging.

Finding a skin care system that works for you is half the battle for maintaining a youthful glow. Obagi and Jane Iredale produce high-quality, prescription-grade skin care products that have been proven to reduce age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Providing UVA protection without blocking pores is key to both keeping skin happy in the long term and looking and feeling your best today.

Acne Control and Anti-Aging Lines
Hormones, weather and exposure to the elements all contribute to breakouts and aging skin. An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon can help you find the products that work best for your skin type and lifestyle. Theraderm and Eternox systems combat aging by using pharmaceutical-grade ingredients that can only be prescribed by a doctor. Reversion is a highly successful acne control system that eliminates acne while preventing future breakouts. The best way to fight premature aging is to get an early start, and settle into a healthy skin care regimen.
