Have you ever heard that old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”? That is exactly what you are missing in your skin care, a prevenative.
Prevenatives, such as CE Feurlic and Resveratrol BE by SkinCeuticals, are packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants help fight free radicals, which are all around us from the pollution in the air, to the cigarette you’ve just smoked, or that martini you just took a sip of. These free radicals steal healthy oxygen molecules which cause damage to the cells. Those damaged cells, reproduced more damaged cells. It is a vicious cycle…which will eventually will show up in your skin! Damage shows in the skin through pigment, lines, wrinkles, rough texture, and fatigue.
We have all seen the numerous serums and creams on the market that say they will make you young again or erase all your pigment. They for sure can improve your skin when used correctly and are combined with a healthy lifestyle. These products are know as correctives, they are made to correct the problem not keep it from coming back.
For prevention, we need to do things a little differently. If you are looking for LONG LASTING results adding antioxidant rich preventatives combined with your favorite corrective plus a protectant (sunscreen) will give you the power to combat the world of aging.
We are human; we cant stop ourselves from being in the sun or having a martini here and there. That is why there are preventatives to give us some leeway.
Remember, aging is a natural process that no one will ever be able to stop, but you can age gracefully by adding certain things to your skincare.
