Merle Norman has more on what you need to know about anti-aging skin care. The damage you see today was done years ago when the harsh effects of the sun were not as well known. Luckily, skincare technology has advanced, so we can do something about our skin’s appearance and prevent future damage from occurring. As your body’s largest organ, the skin protects the entire body. Tanning not only ages your skin by breaking down collagen and elastin and promoting wrinkles, but also changes the DNA in your skin cells, leading to skin disorders and disease. Basic daily skincare routines for all ages, men and women should be: Cleanse, Exfoliate, Moisturize and use Sun Protection.
Follow these suggestions year round:
1. Limit outdoor activities during the sun’s peak hours of 11AM-4PM.
2. Stay away from tanning beds.
3. Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30 to your face and exposed body areas. New FDA guidelines recommend a SPF 30 to ensure adequate coverage. Merle Norman’s new Anti-Aging Complex Emulsion has the newest sun protection ingredients available. It’s like sunglasses for your skin. In addition, this new formula has a proprietary blend of three different peptides reduce the appearance of aging skin by firming, smoothing and tightening the skin. Peptides are a short chain of amino acids that improve skin’s firmness, elasticity and suppleness.
4. The active ingredients are placed in an emulsion base. One thing you will notice immediately is how light this product feels and it does not leave a white cast on the skin like most products with a high sun protection factor. Clinical studies showed that 91% of women saw improvement in the depth of wrinkles and the smoothness of skin in just 4 weeks.
