ANTI AGING MADE SIMPLE
Level 1: Beginner
A daytone moisturizer with sunscreen:
“The easiest, most inexpensive wasy to prevent skin aging is to use sunscreen,” says Philadelphia dermatologist Susan Taylor
A night cream:
Hydrated skin is supple skin, says New Orleans dermatologist Nia Terezakis. So it’s important to replenish the natural oils and water that you lose daily.
“Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and smoothes texture,” says Miami dermatologist Fredric Brandt.
Level 2: Intermediate
An antioxidant serum:
A serum will help prevent and repair environmental damage from sun and pollution that destroys skin cells and collagen.
A retinoid product:
Retinoic acid, a vitamin A derivative penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production, causing cell turnover.
A peptide cream or serum:
“Peptides are short chains of amino acids that form proteins such as collagen,” says Brandt.
An eye cream:
“The skin around the eyes has few oil glands to keep it hydrated, so that’s usually where wrinkles appear first.” says Debra aliman, a dermatologist in New York City.
