Growing older is not a problem to be fixed. We prefer to say ‘good skin at every age’ . Good skincare is more geared towards prevention rather than cure. Corrective skincare products will always be popular, especially for concerns such as pigmentation which can occur at any time.

Look for skincare backed by science. Skincare proven to give good results. 

Diligent use of a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen should never be neglected. After all, UVA rays, responsible for skin ageing, is able to penetrate through glass . What are UVA rays again? While UVA rays may not cause sunburn, they can result in long-term damage to the skin with  melanomas, ageing , pigmentation, sun sensitivity and the aggravation of oily and acne-prone skin are all symptoms of exposure to UVA rays. To protect your skin against these UVA rays which are present year round, Apply your sun protection daily as part of your skincare routine, regardless of how sunny it appears outside. We are exposed to ultraviolet rays 365 days of the year . UVB is responsible for approximately 5% of the rays and only when the sun is out, it causes damage to the epidermis  . UVA & IR is there 365 days of the year even in cloudy dark weather, it penetrates skin like an X-ray and goes deep in to the dermis, can cause collagen damage, wrinkles and  DNA damage in cells which can result in cell mutations and skin cancer.  

 

A good broad spectrum SPF can be used as a moisturiser & protection. 

For enhanced protection against environmental & UV  damage,  incorporate an antioxidant rich vitamin C serum, preferably a combination antioxidant, vitamin C , vitamin E & Ferulic. The triple combination vitamin antioxidant improves the efficiency and longevity of the product. 


Avoid sunburn !!
