Did you see the controversial BBC programme The Truth About Looking Good (Jan 18th 2018)?
The program identified research that has shown two proven ingredients to keep your skin wrinkle free for as long as possible. These are the following: -
1. UVA and UVB skin protection
2. Using a Retinol product at night (Vitamin A)
I know what you’re thinking…‘I want to tan because it makes me feel and look much better.’ Me too! However, a slow bake is better than a quick fry. You can still get a tan using sun protection. Just take it easy, tan sensibly, don’t burn and do it without getting pigmentation.
UVA - Protects against ageing
UVB - Protects against burning
You may wonder why I’m talking about sun protection when it’s snowing outside? The reason is, that you need to protect your skin against harmful sunrays, even in the snow!
Photodamage skin (sun damaged skin), whether we intentionally wanted to tan or not, happens to everyone. Retinol- based cosmetics play a significant role in the management of photodamaged skin. You can’t afford not to use this if you want to have beautiful skin.
Retinoids (vitamin A), include names such as, retinol, retinal and retinoic acid.
Studies have shown that retinol is safe and effective in the treatment of photodamaged skin. All of my patients are advised to use a retinoid on their skin at night, and some of my patients are given a ‘prescription only’ strength version called Tretinoin.
