If the papers are to be believed there is something new to scare us. That is blue light. Replying to your e-mails, catching up on your favourite Netflix series and that daily dose of whats app, will give you wrinkles. The cosmetics industry wouldn’t be the cosmetics industry, though, if it hadn’t found a solution for this; special blue light creams and serums to protect us against so-called screen face. What does this actually mean?
That frown line on your forehead? The crow’s feet around your eyes or the sagging skin on your cheeks? No, sadly you can’t wipe those away. Really. That doesn’t mean, however, that skincare products won’t be able to make your skin look younger. It requires some persistence but it really is possible. And did you know that pigmentation spots and dull sallow skin, in particular, make you look older?
Although most of our good intentions don’t often last very long, I always favour a fresh start to the New Year. I can see, from all the mails I receive, that lots of people are really getting to work on their skin during this time. That is a good idea, because you need to look after your skin. And with a little more attention you will, literally, feel better. Commerce is also aware of this, as is evident when you open the January editions of the magazines. They are full of new gadgets, products and treatments promising you miracles. One of those new trends is DNA based skincare. And I would like to tell you some more about this.
If there were a top ten of anti-ageing products which could shrink everything except your wrinkles, at most your bank balance, then stem cells in creams would rate highly. Although stem cell research actually can and should change medical science, research into the application is still in its early stages. Also in the area of skin rejuvenation.
Good quality creams combined with an appropriate skincare routine make your skin radiant, smooth, strong and healthy. It can even help prevent ageing. This is pretty impressive, however, in my experience, this still isn’t enough for most women and men!
Here I am again! A bit later than normal, but this time I’ve got a good excuse. You see, I had to go to Miami for the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology. This meeting is held once a year and you really need to attend it if you want to know the latest news in the field of (Cosmetic) Dermatology.
