Find the right products for your skin type! With so many different products on the market promising so many different things it's hard to know what products are right for you. We've taken the time to break down the best products for oily, dry, normal and sensitive skin. At Trilogy we carry the best skin care products on the market.

Oily Skin

Although the oil on our skin helps protect it and fight signs of aging, many people suffer from an excess of oil. People with oily skin have larger pores as well. We often picture teenagers having this problem, but it can affect people of all ages and cause blemishes, pimples, and congestion without proper skin care.

  • 1. Use a facial cleanser twice a day
  • 2. Use a toner
  • 3. Use a serum or cream for your skin’s needs
  • 4. Moisturize your skin
  • 5. Sunscreen

Monthly facials, and quarterly chemical peels will help control your skin’s PH balance and help tighten and minimize your pores.

Here’s what your skin care regimen should look like:

CLEANSER: SKIN MEDICA AHA/BHA CLEANSER

TONER: SKIN MEDICA REJUVENATIVE TONER

SERUM/CREAM: SKIN MEDICA AHA/BHA CREAM // SKIN MEDICA RETINOL

MOISTURIZER: SKIN MEDICA HA5

SPF: JANE IREDALE LOOSE MINERAL POWDER WITH SPF 20




Dry Skin

Dry skin can be flaky, scaly or rough. When it's not cared for, dry skin may lead to early signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles, and even cracked skin and inflammation. Prevention is key. Anyone can develop dry skin, and without proper care, your skin will continue to age prematurely. These tips well help keep your skin moisturized and looking healthy:

  • 1. Use cleansing creams and gentle skin cleansers
  • 2. Use a highly potent and concentrated serum
  • 3. Moisturize your skin with hydrating ingredients
  • 4. Use sunscreen.

Monthly facials, and quarterly chemical peels will help control your skin’s PH balance and help slough off dry skin.

Normal Skin

If you are a normal skin type, you're lucky to have skin that has a good balance and the right amounts of water and lipids. Normal skin has few imperfections, no severe sensitivity, barely visible to normal pores, and a radiant complexion. In essence, taking care of normal skin requires addressing and getting in front of all the problems you don't currently see on your face. Having normal skin doesn't mean you don't or won't have skincare concerns that you need to take care of now with a great daily skincare routine.

  • 1. A cleanser you can use twice a day
  • 2. A concentrated serum
  • 3. A hydrating moisturizer
  • 4. Use sunscreen

Monthly facials, and quarterly chemical peels will help maintain that radiant glow.

Sensitive Skin

If your skin is sensitive, it's helpful to find out why so you can stay away from things that make it react. You may have sensitive skin for a variety of reasons, but often in response to particular skin care products. Sensitive skin can show up with redness, itching, burning, and dryness. Those with sensitive skin can also suffer from rosacea and dermatitis. You want to limit your regimen, and be sure not to overwhelm your skin.

  • 1. A gentle cleanser
  • 2. A hydrating Serum
  • 3. A hydrating moisturizer that is fragrant free
  • 4. Use sunscreen

Monthly facials, and quarterly chemical peels will help maintain that radiant glow.
