Skincare helps with:
- skin texture & tone
- sun damage
- wrinkles & fine lines
How it works:
At-home skincare plans follow Dr. Lupin’s formula for healthy skin: the ABCs of skincare. This approach embraces the most researched and understood active ingredients and skincare steps today:
- A for a vitamin A (retinol) cream to reverse the visible signs of aging in the skin.
- B for a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen to be worn daily and reapplied for continuous protection.
- C for a vitamin C serum or an alternative topical antioxidant such as resveratrol to reduce the damaging effects of oxidative stress and inflammation.
Dedicating yourself to a professional skincare routine is an essential step toward healthy, beautiful skin.

Skincare Frequently Asked Questions
Results will depend on what you are treating. For pigmentation, you’re likely to see some initial fading in the first 6 weeks. Topical antioxidants such as vitamin C should help immediately to reverse initial signs of sun damage while providing cumulative long term benefits for healthier skin.
Skincare is focused on each person’s individual needs. Everyone benefits from protection such as use of topical antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreen. Skincare can be tailored to fading brown discolouration, treating acne and oily skin, helping relieve redness and irritation for those with sensitive skin, and boosting our own internal repair systems.
Most skincare is gentle with no recovery. Topical vitamin A such as with Retinol can lead to initial dryness and flakiness for the first 4-6 weeks until this gradually normalizes.
