Staff Skin Care Routines
Denice Schwind, PA-C
One of the many reasons I specialized in Cosmetic Dermatology is my passion for skincare! Prior to my education, my drawers were overflowing with every over-the-counter skincare product I could find! The good news…once I learned what actually makes a difference in our skin, I realized skincare does not have to be expensive or too complicated. Having acne prone, aging, rosacea, AND sensitive skin, my skincare products are medical grade and target each concern.
In the morning I wash my face with iS Clinical Cleansing Complex and always use my Clarisonic first thing. I then apply iS Clinical Super Serum Advance which contains L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), copper tripeptide growth factor and hydrating hyaluronic acids, protecting my skin from UV damage. For light moisture and instant anti-aging benefits I then apply iS Clinical Youth Complex to help stimulate the appearance of collagen, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. I also apply iS Clinical Youth Eye to smooth and hydrate the sensitive skin on the upper and lower lids. An important area to treat, starting in our 40’s is the neck. iS clinical came out with the perfect product, iS Clinical Neck Perfect last year and I am in love! My favorite sunscreen is iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50 Perfectint Suncreen for full UVA/UVB coverage and a nice tint for the day!
In the evening, I always wash my face before heading to bed. I use iS Cleansing Complex with my Clarisonic for gentle removal of makeup, etc from the day. Once my skin is completely dry, I apply SkinMedica Retinol Complex to target my acne prone skin along with anti-aging components. If my skin is feeling dehydrated from the day I love the feel of SkinMedica HA5 Hydrator which features 5 different forms of Hylauronic Acid to plump and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I top it off with iS Clinical Neck Perfect which helps lift and firm with powerful alpha hydroxy acids and antioxidants.
My morning and evening routine takes me less than 5 minutes each and is an important part of maintaining healthy glowing skin!

I love both medical grade product lines we retail at Pur Skin Clinic! In the morning I cleanse with iS Clinical Cleansing complex, it gives me a deep cleanse without over drying my skin. Next, I use iS Clinical Super Serum as my antioxidant protection against free radical damage. Then onto the most important part, iS Clinical Eclipse SPF 50! This medical grade, broad spectrum sun protection shields my skin from those damaging UVA and UVB sunrays. And before I run out the door I make sure to apply my HA5 Lip System to rehydrate and plump my lips.
My night time routine starts off with Cleansing Complex and my Clarisonic- which removes my make-up so much better than just using my hands! I finish up with iS Clinical’s White Lightening Complex, this product helps treat hyperpigmentation and gently exfoliates my skin, while adding a bit of hydration.
I have been obsessed with skincare products ever since I was a teen. I would always research unique skincare lines, and have used a variety of skincare routines starting in college. I am very disciplined with my skincare on a daily basis, yet also keep it simple! In the morning, I cleanse with EltaMD foaming facial facial cleanser. The foaming action with papaya extract awakens my face to begin the day. I follow that with SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex. This has been a wonder product for my skin, and has made the most dramatic difference! I then reach for the SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator, which quenches and plumps my dry skin. I finish my morning routine with my favorite SPF for the face- EltaMD UV Elements facial sunscreen. I love the broad-spectrum SPF protection it offers, as well as how it feels and primes my skin for makeup application or even just by itself.
