How do fine lines around our eyes, mouth, forehead develop? And what can we do to prevent further damage from sun exposure?
Photo damage or exposure to ultraviolet light, whether natural or artificial (i.e. tanning lights) can cause damage to pigment-producing cells, skin cells and the elastic fibers of our skin.
Luckily, through advances in science and technology we can arm ourselves with the proper skin care products to help prevent and reverse the damage on our skin and improve its appearance.
But no matter what popular ads claim, it will take at least 2 to 6 months to see visible results. How quickly the damage can be reversed depends on many factors. Lifestyle, nutrition and environmental conditions will determine how quickly your new skin care routine will take effect. Bear in mind, it took years of improper skin care routines, or even complete lack of skin care maintenance and protection that led to the damage on the skin! So don’t expect overnight results!
Here are our recommendations:
1. Sun protection – We recommend a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to be applied daily. Make sure to reapply your sunscreen every 2-3 hours when engaging in outdoor activities.
2. Retinoids (RETINOL YOUTH RECHARGE NIGHT CREME) – RETINOL is scientifically proven to reduce the fragmented elastic fibers in the skin and increase the amount of healthy collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. A possible side effect is that it can irritate your skin (especially for sensitive skin types). We recommend applying a small amount once a week then gradually increase the frequency to 2x a week.
3. Peptide Elixirs/Serums (LUMINOUS PEPTIDE ELIXIR) – Serums and elixirs that contain nutrient rich ingredients are best for balancing uneven skin tone, sun spots and age-related spots. Luminous Peptide Elixir contains CoQ10 which penetrates deeply and helps in collagen production. It also contains active botanicals such as Daisy Flower extract which reduces melanin formation and helps balance uneven skin tone due to sun damage.
And there you have it. If you’re looking for a fuss-free, easy-peasy skin care routine, look no further. Neat Skin Care Co. NY has all the answers to your skin care dilemma.
