Premature aging can start as early as in your twenties, when your sun capacity has already been used over your youth and teenage years spent in the sun. Sun spots and fine lines start to show.
My professional recommendations for reversing the aging process would be to get regular monthly lactic acid peels that double up as both tyrosinase inhibitors as well as exfoliation enhancers to safely remove spots and smooth out fine lines. A customized skin care regimen would also have to be diligently followed at home, morning and night.
The home regimen should be as followed:
In the morning, one should avoid excess cleansing or any types of exfoliation which will cause the destruction of the natural acidic environment of the skin. This natural acidic environment, also called the Acid Mantle of the skin, is meant to protect you from free radicals such as sun and pollution.
WHAT TO DO: Simply tone with a gentle PH toner close to 5.6, then apply sunscreen, making sure it is an UVA/UVB sun proof protection.
At night, it is high time to cleanse, exfoliate with the use of an Alpha Hydroxy toner, and apply medical grade vitamin A and C. Vitamin A will help and accelerate the cellular turnover. Vitamin C will act as a powerful anti-oxidant and also help boost collagen.
WHAT TO DO: Cleanse your face also by adding Clarisonic Facebrush (Clarisonic Facebrushes do not create any exfoliation but perfect cleansing). Tone with an AHA toner to create a natural exfoliation respecting the acidic PH of the skin. Apply medical grade vitamins A and C. The best is to gradually level up the amount of vitamin A so as not to create any retinoid skin reactions.
