Antioxidant Skincare by SkinCeuticals

Choosing Antioxidant Skin Care Products Stress has become a part of our lives. Pollution, refined foods, exposure to sunlight—they all impact how our skin looks and feels. Realistically, avoiding these things can be very hard. Fortunately, there’s an alternative to becoming a beauty hermit. Antioxidants can play a big part in protecting your skin. This is called preventative care, and one of the best lines for it is SkinCeuticals. “Antioxidants can be found in fresh fruits and veggies. Naturally, diet is a big part of skin care. A good diet can help you fight lines, wrinkles, and discolouration. For optimal results, you should reinforce this with a comprehensive preventative program. I have great faith in SkinCeuticals, and refer many of my clients to this line,” says aesthetic doctor Roz Kamani. Many studies and lab tests have repeatedly shown that antioxidants are very effective at neutralizing the chemical reactions generated when skin is exposed to various environmental stresses. This helps prevent signs of premature aging, fine lines, and discolouration. “SkinCeuticals has developed a wonderful menu of super-antioxidant formulas that can provide the most advanced protection from environmental damage,” says Dr. Kamani. “It’s important to use both a good daytime and night time serum.

Skin Care For Any Age: Part Two, 30s

Early signs of aging If you are in your 30s, you are likely experiencing hormonal changes which will affect your skin. This can lead to acne breakouts. In addition, some fine wrinkles and lines may start to appear as your collagen production cannot keep up with its breakdown, especially if you are a sun-worshipper or are outdoors a lot for work or recreation. In other words, early signs of aging start to occur no matter what! As a choice of cleanser, Dr. Roz Kamani recommends the Simply Clean with your Clarisonic device morning and night. If there is a need for gentle exfoliation, the Micro Exfoliating Scrub three times a week is a great addition to the regimen. Anti-Oxidant serums Now is the time to think about the protection that Anti-Oxidant serums provide. Such products protect against free radical damage, while also stimulating collagen production to prevent and diminish the first signs of aging. Dr. Roz Kamani’s favorite anti-oxidant is SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. She recommends using it as the first thing to reach for after a thorough cleansing in the morning. Again, remember to use adequate sunscreen protection such as the SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50, another favorite! At this stage in your life, a more personalized regimen after consultation with Dr. Kamani may include a corrective moisturizer such as the Metacell B3 and a prescription for a topical exfoliant.
