Dr. Greco and Joan believe in a few simple principles when it comes to skincare:
1. Wear Sunscreen!
Exposure to the sun can cause pre-cancerous and cancerous skin lesions, wrinkles, freckles, and discolored areas of the skin. PREVENTION+, from IMAGE Skincare, a daily ultimate protection moisturizer with SPF 50, protects skin cells and DNA against free radical change.
2. Use Retinoids.
The one must have ingredient to help keep skin young. Retinoids are Vitamin A derivatives that unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth the skin. The Ageless Total Retinol-A Creme from IMAGE Skincare strengthens collagen and repairs aging skin.
3. Get enough sleep.
Sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze, and that leads to an extensive list of benefits for your looks including fewer wrinkles, a glowing complexion, and brighter, less puffy eyes.
4. Exfoliate regularly.
This removes the dead, complexion dulling skin cells that give you a dull appearance.
5. Avoid smoke (even second-hand).
Smoke can be harmful to your skin. Smoking can speed up the normal aging process of your skin, contributing to wrinkles.
If your skin is not getting enough water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight, and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling, resulting in skin that ages faster.
