However, it’s important to pay attention to the fundamentals, such as diet, lifestyle, and sleep! One of the most basic ways to get fresh, glowing skin is a good night’s rest. Not getting enough sleep is all too easy in our hectic day-to-day lives. However, the results are always written clearly on our faces the next day. Something wonderful happens when we sleep—our body regenerates. We release a youth-activating hormone that builds our muscle, bones, and skin. The result is that we look stronger, healthier, and younger. Sleep is part of the normal tissue repair cycle. It would be fair to say that sleep is one of the most underrated beauty tools around. In fact, a good night’s rest should be pursued as part of your regular beauty regimen.

Advanced Sun Care for All Seasons

Best Sunscreens for All Seasons There are three primary factors that age the skin—stress, sun, and pollution. Most people are great at remembering their sunscreen during the bright days of summer, but if you’re serious about skincare, it’s important to wear sunscreen year round. As an aesthetic doctor, Dr. Roz Kamani knows it can be hard to commit to sun care all year, particularly when formulas are greasy, gloppy, or foul smelling. That’s why she’s introduced the SkinCeuticals line of sun care products to her practice. “Many people feel that the lower temperatures and cloud cover means a decreased probability of sun damage,” says Dr. Kamani. “This is incorrect. Sun damage is caused by Ultraviolet A and B light. UVA light is present at all times. It is not affected by clouds. Although we often associate the golden glow of a tan with health and beauty, the effects of the sun on the skin often enhance the effects of ageing. Water is depleted, leaving skin dry and papery looking. Additionally, skin can become mottled and blemished, resulting in an appearance that leaves us looking and feeling older than we actually are. To give skin the very best chance at staying radiant and looking fresh, it’s important to keep using your sunblock year round—and use the same SPF (Sun Protection Factor) that you do in the summer. “SkinCeuticals sunscreens protect against the effect of photo ageing. These sunscreen products provide a high level of broad spectrum sun protection with chemical-free UV filters.” Available in a variety of formulations suitable for daily use, SkinCeuticals has a sunscreen for all skin types. Dr. Kamani can help you choose one that suits your preferences. UV DEFENSE SPF 30 This broad spectrum protective cream with transparent zinc oxide (Z-Cote®*) helps protect...

Skin Care For Any Age: Part Three, 40s

Slower cell turnover and loss of moisture In your 40s, you begin to notice that your skin is not as “buoyant” due to early loss of collagen. More fine lines and wrinkles start to show up. To combat slower cell turnover and loss of moisture, a corrective and preventative program of skin care is both important and desirable. The “gold standard” for the treatment of laxity of the skin at this stage is Retin A. In SkinCeuticals, the two formulations, Retinol 0.5 and 1.0 are the perfect start. How does Retin A work? To put it simply, it stimulates your collagen and helps with exfoliation. Get your glow back You get your glow back! Use it every night on a clean skin followed by a moisturizer. Your skin will thank you for it! Specific skin products, such as the Advanced Skin Discoloration Corrector, can help reduce dark spots from sun damage and hormonal changes due to aging or after pregnancy. Declining moisture can be dealt with using the SkinCeuticals Face Cream. It helps replace lipids in your skin using natural ingredients such as soya. Remember to use more frequent and diligent sunscreen, especially with the use of Retinol in the summer, as well as for every day protection of your skin.

Skin Care For Any Age: Part One, 20s

What the doctor ordered Our skin changes with every decade we age. It is also our body’s largest organ. The younger we are, the faster our cells multiply. In our 20s the skin looks glowy and fresh, but the quick turnover of cells can very easily clog the pores, leading to acne and oiliness. What products do you use for each decade? Dr. Roz Kamani is a big fan of SkinCeuticals …let’s see what the doctor ordered! “This is a wonderful and elegant line that uses quality ingredients,” says Dr. Kamani, founder of the Kitsilano Skin Care Clinic. “It’s well tolerated by all skin types.” In Your Twenties In this stage of your life, it is important to have a regular routine in keeping your skin clean so that you have fewer open pores and blackheads. The SkinCeuticals Blemish and Age Cleanser is the perfect solution to be used morning and night. Once a week, the Clarifying Clay Mask will help draw out the excess oil, sebum and blackheads. If you are looking for a faster result, Dr. Kamani recommends investing in a hand-held sonic device such as the Clarisonic Pro. Use it to prepare the skin and start with a clean slate so that all the other ingredients will be more effective. Remember to protect your skin as well. Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50 is cosmetically elegant and able to absorb excess oil. The slight tint gives you a finished look whilst protecting your skin. Reapply every 2 to 3 hours if you are outdoors. Now you are off to a good start! Exercise and a healthy diet, as...
