Ageless Edition: If You Can Only Buy Three Products
Posted on August 28, 2017
When your budget, your time constraints, or just plain laziness (no judgment) limit you to three skincare products.
Let’s get one thing straight. All skin is aging skin. That’s just part of living. Time, environment, genetics, lifestyle, they’re all variables in a process that begins long before you actually see any wrinkles.
Whether you’re twenty-five or fifty-five, your skin needs protection, repair, and regeneration. You get that from ingredients that protect from UV radiation, accelerate cell turnover, and help boost collagen production.
Your Top Three Must-Haves For Ageless Skin:
Since UV radiation is the number one cause of premature aging, daily sun protection is a must. But not just any protection. You need broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays, the ones that age and the ones the burn. And you need it whether you’re going to the beach or to the store. This non-greasy foundational moisturizer provides the sun protection you need with the hydration you want, plus skin-nourishing ingredients zinc peptide and whole leaf aloe. Wear it under makeup or on its own for UV protection and moisture in one.
The science on the efficacy of retinoids is solidly on the side of yes. To reduce the signs of aging and promote a youthful appearance, nothing works succeeds like vitamin A. Every regimen should include a corrective/preventive vitamin A serum. Derm-A-Renew is one of our favorites because along with its retinoid muscle, it packs the punch of peptides. This daily regenerator accelerates cell turnover, stimulates collagen production, improves elasticity and promotes a youthful glow. No wonder it’s been Dermascope Magazine’s Aestheticians’ Choice for Best Anti-Aging Serum multiple years running.
Free radicals, the cell damaging atoms triggered by oxidative stress—i.e. UV radiation, smoking, pollution, life on the planet—are age accelerators. What fights free radicals? Antioxidants. The chief free-radical scavenging antioxidants are vitamin C, Vitamin E, and beta-carotene or vitamin A (which you’re getting with your Derm-A-Renew application). These superhero antioxidants stop the cascade reaction of free radical activity to protect cellular integrity and ward off age-accelerating damage. In addition to their potent photo-protective abilities, vitamins C and E boost cell renewal, enhance collagen production, and brighten the complexion. Spin Trap harnesses this synergistic duo for a daily dose of radiance. Use it every morning to face the effects of the day.
