Do you wish daily that you had younger looking skin?  by Tasha  younger looking skin at Christiaan Best Salon and Day Spa, Providence, RI

Aging can start in your 20s, or later in midlife depending on your habits and genetics. There are factors you cannot control, like hormonal changes, prior sun exposure, and genetics, but there are several external factors that influence how you and your skin age. It is never too late to take control of those external factors and start a healthy and skin conscious change for the better. Take these skin anti-aging tips below and place them into action today!

Prevent & Repair Sun Damage

Take control of your sun exposure. Sun damages elastin and causes a loss of collagen, which contributes to sagging and wrinkles. It also can lead to discoloration and roughened texture.

Further, UV rays from the sun are the main cause of skin cancers, a risk that is even more aggressive than just cosmetic concerns. For your sun care needs, you should look for a broad spectrum sunscreen that is at least SPF 30 and is zinc based which is broad spectrum in its protection. A fantastic find is glo therapeutics Oil Free SPF 40. It is not only a non-white and non-greasy sunscreen that fits all the requirements; it also has bonus antioxidant packed in it to help fortify the skin.  Another great product is glo therapeutics Moisturizing Tint SPF 30+ which is a lightweight, oil free formula that provides moisture, broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and a sheer hint of color.

Antioxidant Protection for Anti-Aging
Antioxidants combat the free-radical damage that is responsible for the visible and hidden signs of aging; they further enhance the effectiveness of sunscreens in preventing sun damage. The combination of antioxidants plus sun protection is a strong defense against many signs of aging, including wrinkles, dullness, and discoloration.

There are quite a few antioxidants available on the market, including L-ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Vitamin E, Green Tea, Caffeine, Ferulic Acid, amongst others. One of my favorites is the Age Defying Power Duo Kits.  The kit contains Ultra 15% Vitamin C and Advanced B5 Hydration to work together to revitalize tone and texture and restore skin’s youthful appearance.

Retinoids for Anti-Aging
There are many creams in the market to reverse and repair the aging process; the very best cream and what has the most evidence based results are Retinoids, Vitamin A derivative compounds that have been shown to increase collagen production and cell turnover, in addition to decongest pores and stimulate blood vessels in the area. This in turn leads to less oil and acne & brighter and smoother skin.

People that have used retinoids for years typically have a fresh, dewy complexion. There are several different strengths, over the counter, prescription and medical grade Retinol. Often insurance companies will not cover the prescription due to age restrictions and because it is used for cosmeceutical purposes, and it’s costly. Your best bet is to start with a medical grade Retinol, like in Glo Therapeutics Retinol CS, which has the added benefit of Glycolic Acid and natural brighteners to bring out the best in your skin.

Just know that you do not have to spend a fortune to get safe, effective products for your skin regimen. Glo Therapeutics delivers unique, personalized skincare that combines up to date technology and cutting edge research to deliver the best ingredients for your skin.
