In the real world of research, science, dermatology, and physiology (as opposed to the world of Disney fairy tales, Star Wars, or fashion magazine and infomercial stories), great skin care is readily available to everyone. Endless science-based published studies have pointed the way to achieving this goal, and it knows no geographic boundaries. For all of us, wherever we live, we need to do the following:
10 STEPS TO FLAWLESS SKIN (that actually work)
#1 – Use sun protection every day, all year long.
#2 – Avoid direct sun exposure as much as possible every day, all year long.
#3– Never get a tan or a sunburn.
#4 – Do not smoke (a perennial sticking point for many women).
#5 – Avoid overconsumption of alcohol—when we say “cocktail of antioxidants,” we don’t mean “drink more wine!”
#6 – Get enough sleep.
#7 – Do not use products that cause irritation.
#8 – Use products loaded with antioxidants, skin-repairing ingredients, and cell-communicating ingredients.
#9 – Use products appropriate for your skin type; for example, creams for dry skin, lotions for normal skin, and gels or liquids for oily skin.
#10– Use a well-formulated exfoliant—AHA (glycolic or lactic acid) or BHA (salicylic acid)—to reduce wrinkles, blackheads, and breakouts (not a scrub or cleansing grains).
