The Three Products Everyone Should Own (And We Mean EVERYONE!)

Whether you’re a man or a woman, in your thirties or your sixties, have flawless skin or a blemished complexion, there are three products that (without a doubt) everyone should own. Some people are obsessive about their complex skincare regimens, while others swear by a routine of soap and water. Whichever category you fall into, these three products are not only necessary, they’re easy to use! Better yet, they are all products that can be picked up at Dr. Anthony J. Geroulis’ North Shore Center for Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery.

Ready to learn more about the products? They are (drum roll, please): Retinol, SPF and Vitamin C. Dr. Geroulis and his medical staff truly believe that incorporating these three products into your skincare regimen will transform your complexion. Retinol encourages skin cell regeneration, meaning that it’s perfect for those seeking an anti-aging product. Everyone in their twenties and beyond should be on the lookout for a good anti-aging product! Retinol also helps reduce fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and more. The second must-have product is SPF. Not only does this protect against skin cancer, but too much sun exposure can cause fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a common misconception that sunscreen should only be worn in the summer; for best results, men and women should wear a product with SPF 365 days a year. The last product that we recommend is Vitamin C. Products with this powerful antioxidant are crucial for healthy, beautiful skin. Vitamin C encourages collagen production, brightens the complexion and evens out skin tone. You’ll love your skin after just a few months of using these products! We’ve recommended products below to fulfill each of these needs!


  • Revision Retinol Complete 1.0: This next-generation Retinol formula improves skin texture; it brightens, smooths, conditions, and boosts skin’s radiance. This product also contains Bakuchiol, an antioxidant which enhances the overall condition of the skin. The Retinol is encapsulated and time-released for better efficacy.


  • Obagi Sun Shield Matte Broad Spectrum (SPF 50): This broad-spectrum sunscreen provides UVA/UVB protection in a non-greasy, fragrance-free formula that applies completely sheer in an elegant matte finish.
  • Revision Intellishade Original Broad-Spectrum (SPF 45): Outsmart signs of aging with this award-winning, tinted moisturizer that gives skin a touch of sheer, healthy color. It’s formulated with a blend of three peptides and broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
