You only have one face, so taking proper care of it is a must. Your skin needs plenty of care to prevent premature aging, hyperpigmentation, dark circles, breakouts and other concerns—and what you put on your face matters just as much as what you put in your body. Finding the right skincare routine can take a little trial and error, but when you invest in quality products, your face will never look better.
TOUCHÉ is pleased to be your one-stop skincare shop in Carmel, CA. We stock high-end brands like Société and Kaplan MD, which are made with clean ingredients and guaranteed to get great results.
Why high-end skincare products are better for your routine
For anyone on a budget, quality skincare products—and their prices—can be intimidating. Does it really make that much of a difference? Can’t you just go to the drugstore and use your old standby products? They often have the same ingredients anyway, right?
The problem with drugstore products as opposed to luxury skincare lines is that although they may use some of the same ingredients, they typically use less of them. Luxury products use higher concentrations of the active ingredients, which means they tend to be more effective than drugstore products with the same ingredients.
How can you tell? Look at the ingredient list. Ingredients are listed in order by highest concentration. If you see an active ingredient closer to the beginning of the list, that means there’s more of it in the product.
Another benefit to luxury products is that they’re often developed by doctors and scientists who have performed significant research in how human skin reacts to certain ingredients. Clinical testing, research and product development are expensive undertakings, but the result is a product that works. Meanwhile, drugstore brands often copy formulas and use less-than-premium ingredients, which can sometimes achieve similar results—but more often than not, you’ll end up using more of the product and see inferior results. In the end, sometimes it’s a lot cheaper to opt for the luxury product the first time around.
How to decide on a skincare routine
When you visit us at TOUCHÉ, our friendly staff will help you select the right products for your skin type and lifestyle—after all, some people are comfortable with a 10-step nightly routine, while others barely remember to slap on some sunblock in the morning. We’ll ask you questions about your current skincare regimen, products you’ve tried before, your allergies and your goals. Once we’ve identified your needs and your skin type, we can recommend products that will help bring out the best in your skin.
Generally, there are three major steps in skincare: cleansing, toning and moisturizing. We recommend starting with at least one product for each of these steps, and adding more as you identify new considerations or needs.
To find the right products for you, visit TOUCHÉ. We’re a full-service skincare store in Carmel, CA, and we look forward to assisting you soon with whatever products or tips you may need!
