Staff Skin Care Routines Edmonds
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 to mix it up with when it comes to my skin care! I often switch things up from time to time, but I definitely have some staples that I can’t live without! I start every morning and every evening with a deep cleanse with iS Clinical Cleansing Complex. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and soft, ready for whatever else I apply next. In the morning, after cleansing, I reach for Is Clinical Pro Heal Serum which provides my skin with the necessary antioxidant protection while reducing inflammation and preventing blemishes. I then hydrate the delicate skin around my eyes with iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex. This helps fill in fine lines and helps my puffiness and dark circles disappear. When I’m feeling extra dry, I will use Skin Medica HA5 to help hydrate the skin of my face, neck and chest. And I always end my morning routine with iS Clinical Eclipse SPF to protect my skin from harmful UV rays – rain or shine!
In the evening, after cleansing, I use the Skin Medical Lytera 2.0 to diminish the appearance of stubborn discoloration, making my skin complexion more even, eliminating my need for concealer. I follow that up with iS Clinical Youth Complex and iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex for an extra boost of hydration!

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.

A lesson I learned early on is to always wash away the day’s makeup and debris every evening. At bedtime, I switch to the SkinMedica daily cleanser to remove my makeup and cleanse away impurities. It’s a very gentle, soothing cleanser that’s perfect for everyday use. As I do in the morning, I again follow with the SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex, and SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvanting Hydrator. The combination of these two products morning and night gives my skin a boost of growth factors, antioxidants, and hydration to help combat fine lines, texture, and skin tone. My last step is the SkinMedica Replenish Hydrating Cream which gives my skin a greater boost of hydration layered on top of the other products.
