Jodi Logerfo APRN, FNP-C, DCNP

“My philosophy for skin care is based on a simple program: Cleanse skin with a gentle cleanser, exfoliate and tone, moisturize, and then use sun protection. My theory is that most people’s skin problems have to do with what they are using on their skin, which unfortunately often includes harsh products full of allergens and sensitizers. With a back-to-basics approach, I think we will see less inflammation and less skin disease.

I begin treatment by asking each patient a series of questions—products used, hair and skin cleansing routines, medical issues and lifestyle. This allows me to ‘peel the onion,’ so to speak, layer by layer, to get the information necessary to provide truly customized care.”
