How To Transform Dull Skin Into Glowing Skin!
I am often asked, “What does my skin need to achieve a luminous / glowing appearance?”
Here are my top 5 recommendations:
One of the most important items in your daily regime is sunblock. Over time, UVA and UVB rays damage the skin leading to fine lines, excessive pigment, and potentially precancerous and cancerous growths. I recommend a physical block containing zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. These products are now formulated so they are light and easy to use.
Vitamin C and E and some plant based products have been scientifically shown to slow and even repair the damage caused by sun and free radicals in our environment. If applied daily, these products can significantly improve skin tone and texture.
3) Alpha and Beta Hydroxyl Acids
These ingredients may sound intense, but they are natural (plant or sugar based), gentle exfoliators which will help your skin achieve a healthy glow and luminosity.
4) Growth Factors and Stem Cells
These products are new to the ever-evolving technology of advancing skin care. They have been shown to stimulate fibroblasts to make new collagen. This will help restore elasticity and thickness to the skin.
5) Topical Retinol
Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative. This is a MUST for most skin types. Retinol reduces pigment, stimulates new collagen production, creates a more elastic / plump texture, and results in a glowing appearance.
A combination of these products, used daily, will enhance your skins appearance.
