We are all born with Beautiful Skin!
At birth, we all start out with beautiful skin. No wrinkles, spots, large pores, but then what happens? Sun, smoking, poor diet all begin to affect the quality of our skin. SKIN CARE is advertised everywhere, but why? As we age our skin, unfortunately, loses the baby smooth look we were all born with.
For example, look at the inside of your upper arm, which receives little sun and compare it to your outer arm or forearm. See a big difference? It’s all about sun exposure.
More sun abuse results in more wrinkles, spots, discoloration, etc. But, with the advent of sun blocks and skin care regimes available today, it’s now possible to maintain healthy, young looking beautiful skin forever.
For younger generations, parents encouraging the application of sunblocks have already given you a head start, but continued use of sunblocks is not the only answer. A good skin care regimen will help prevent further damage as aging continues and other environmental factors (i.e., diet, smoking, etc.) occur. Regarding smoking, identical twins have been photographed in their 50-60’s, and the smokers literally look 10 years older than their twin with more sagging and wrinkles.
You Can Have Beautiful Skin At Any Age
Even if one cannot afford non-surgical options, such as lasers, peels, or surgical options such as the eyelids, face and neck lifts, a good at home skin care system can still provide the benefit of healthy, young looking skin. Some cosmeceuticals can actually tighten the skin, delaying the necessity of minimally invasive, non-surgical, or even surgical procedures.
With the myriad of skin systems touting claims of “Anti-Aging,” how does one know which products really do work and which are a waste of money? How can you maintain young looking Beautiful Skin?
Watch this video to find out why Dr. Finger decided to create New Youth Skin Care!
First, the system should be “Cosmeceutical”. What does this mean? Cosmeceutical grade systems are a combination of ingredients that can be as effective as prescription strength and have demonstrated that they actually do live up to their claims. For effectiveness, products should: be anti-inflammatory; repair and regenerate the cells producing your skin; repair DNA; reduce the glycation debris that attaches to your collagen and elastin fibers making your skin sag; and have whole food nutrients that your skin needs to remain and become younger in appearance. You can produce healthy and younger looking skin.
Any good skin care should have a “delivery system” that allows the ingredients in the product to actually penetrate the skin to repair the “cells” that produce the skin instead of just affecting the very top layer of the skin. Since the top layer of skin continues to slough throughout one’s life, it makes sense that simply treating the top layers with peels and lasers is “Band-Aid” therapy. Only by repairing cells can we produce long-lasting healthy skin. Various peels and lasers certainly “jump start” skin rejuvenation, but they do not repair environmentally damaged cells.
Additionally, I recommend micro-needling with growth factors, hydrating serums, and other products to maintain healthy skin. We continue to grow older, so a program should be established for those who want to look their best.
How does one choose an effective skin care system? Generally, those sold at physician’s offices are “Cosmeceuticals” An appointment with a qualified aesthetician or physician would be a good first step.
