Tips to Looking Younger While Enjoying the Sun

We all know by now that years of sun exposure will eventually take it’s toll on our skin and appearance, and put us as risk for multiple types of skin cancer. Wearing sunscreen, staying out of the sun during peak hours of the day, and wearing sun protective clothing is very important to keeping our skin healthy and our appearance as youthful as possible!

“…Board-certified dermatologist Arianne Shadi Kourosh, MD, MPH, FAAD, director of community health and co-director of the multiethnic skin clinic in the department of dermatology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston” reports that “environmental factors can damage the skin in multiple ways, from UVB rays causing sunburns and uneven pigmentation to UVA and infrared radiation penetrating more deeply into the skin to damage existing collagen and reduce collagen production, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Habitual UV exposure can cause blood vessels to become more prominent, causing skin redness, she says, while visible light and pollution can cause uneven skin tone, especially in darker skin types. Moreover, other forms of radiation, such as heat and visible light, can negatively impact the skin, as can pollution, so protecting your skin from the environment can benefit both your health and appearance.”

Sun protective factors of 25 – 30 are sufficient to protect us from 95 – 97% of UV radiation. Using skin care products with antioxidants will also help in protecting our skin from environmental pollution and free radical damage.

“Since both types of UV rays can damage the skin, Dr. Kourosh says, it’s important to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that provides both UVA and UVB protection, with an SPF of 30 or higher. She recommends sunscreens containing the active ingredients zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as a good source of broad-spectrum protection suitable for sensitive skin. She also says formulations containing antioxidants may provide some protection against uneven skin tone and aging caused by free radical damage from infrared light, visible light and pollution.”

I have just the product that has both 25 SPF for broad spectrum UVA and UVB sun protection as well as antioxidant ingredients. Celloxylin Day Defense Plus from Apriori Beauty has the following ingredient profile:

Skin Perfecting Veil: Sheer Mineral Coverage Without Foundation

Scientists are now beginning to understand the reasons that young skin has a distinct “glow from within” character that fades with age. Skin is a complex organ consisting of multiple layers and pigments that affect the way light is absorbed, reflected and scattered.

Ultimately, the amount and color of light reflected by skin determines how skin looks to the human eye. Skin that is uneven in tone and texture reflects light irregularly, creating areas of contrast that draw attention to fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation.

Age Related Changes in Skin Structure

Skin Pigments ~ In young skin, the light absorbing pigment, melanin, is diffuse and evenly distributed with age. Environmental damage causes melanin to build up and become unevenly distributed, resulting in age spots and areas of hyperpigmentation. [Read more…]

I Love My Results!


Worried about what to do about your wrinkles and saggy skin? Want to look younger?

I can say without question or doubt, I love my younger look!

What I see is reduction in wrinkles, “lifting” of my whole face (- doesn’t it look a little slimmer?), and when I’m not smiling the vertical wrinkles around my lips are gone. The )( between my eyebrows is much less visible (hard to see with my bangs) and  I love the way my skin feels all the time now.  Even the visible blood vessels on my cheeks and chin are reduced as the surrounding skin is healthier, providing greater elasticity and support. Without the acids in my daily skin care, I don’t feel like my face is “dry and tight” any longer – a lot more spring and softness!

Here’s what I’m using from Apriori Beauty:

~ Skincare regimen included using  Celloxylin skincare system daily~

~ The Derma Firm Illuminator five nights a week ~

Sugar Beet Crystal/Papaya Enzyme Microscrub three times a week ~

~ Celloxylin MD 20Ex Acid Peel twice a week ~

~ Drinking Lifeoxylin Elixir for internal cellular support ~

WOW!! I am just thrilled with my results!

Thanks for stopping by and “Making My Life Beautiful”!
