That also means skin care products have evolved quite nicely just in the past 10 years. And that's what we are looking at today.
Here's some smart skin care advice from dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin of SkinTour.com.
To maintain GREAT skin, you MUST use these 2 products NOW + ALWAYS:
1. - A potent UVA blocking (they all block UVB) sunscreen.
Dr. Irwin's advice---
- For daily wear if you are mostly inside, a facial moisturizer or sunscreen with SPF 30 is ideal and easy to use.
- For days spent outdoors, a higher SPF with is recommended with "broad-spectrum" (better UVA) protection. Look for sunscreens zinc oxide or titanium (5% or greater). Or for sunscreens with Mexoryl 3% or "stabilized" Parsol/avobenzone. These all give excellent UVA and UVB protection.
Elta MD UV Daily SPF 40 Pump($25).
2. - A Retinoid (Vit A cousin cream).
"Retinoids are repair creams that have 20 years of science and experience behind them. They build collagen and normalize sun damaged keratinocytes (skin cells) and help to prevent precancerous growths and skin cancers if used regularly."
Your derm can give you a prescription, but if you prefer over-the-counter, here's one to try.
