I've heard that you should wear a sunscreen every day. Why?
Answer: We always recommend wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, even during the winter. A broad spectrum sunscreen will protect you from both the UVB ray and the UVA ray. The UVB ray is the "burning" ray. This ray stops at the first layer of skin. When you look at your skin, you can see if it's burning or tanning. The UVA ray is the "aging ray" which causes wrinkles. This is also the most harmful ray because is penetrates into the deeper layers of skin and actually changes the DNA in your cells. These cells can possibly become pre-cancerous or cancerous. This ray is also harmful because it is out 24/7 and penetrates the clouds and windows. Sunscreen is the #1 anti-aging product. A must have EVERYDAY!
What are some really good anti-aging products that I can use at home?
Answer: Topical Vitamin C has many wonderful effects. It will help fade out brown spots, help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the redness of broken capillaries, helps firm and plump up the skin and can help heal the cells damaged by the radiation of the sun. Sunscreen is also essential to reduce the aging effects of sun exposure. Both Vitamin C and sunscreen can be incorporated into any regimen.
