Skin in the City: Dermal Guardians for City Dwellers

BY LISA WILLIAMS As well as prettier views, ample parking space and less noise, country dwellers now have another reason to gloat: Research says that if you live in a city, you can also look forward to having older skin. A separate survey also showed that even though urban folks tended to drink more water and use skincare like sunscreen more often, rural residents still score higher in terms of skin quality such as radiance and hydration, which tells us there is something else besides UV that may be impacting skin. If scientists and doctors are to be believed, incorporating urban skin defense into your routine is worth considering. But before you do, know what you’re defending against (and why).

The Truth about Acne Scars

Scars from acne can seem like a double punishment – first you had to suffer through the oily pimply skin and now, you have unsightly marks to remind you. Some people ignore their scars and some wear them with pride, but if like the rest of us, you want a smoother complexion, fret not, there are a variety of ways to help improve the appearance or get rid of your old acne scars.   POTIONS & PEELS The common ingredients in topical creams for acne scars include Vitamin A, which helps with stimulation of collagen, and Vitamin C, Kojic acid, arbutin, that help to lighten the pigmentation associated with early scars (post inflammatory changes). A chemical peel involves the application of a high potency acid upon the skin, and the more potent the acid, the deeper the penetration into the skin.

How To Make Your Skin Behave As If It Is Young Again

A few years ago, dewy skin was still a thing, the hyaluronic acid skinbooster was raved as the skin’s “internal moisturizer”, keeping the skin plump with hydration from within. Now that we have taken it up a notch, and smooth clear skin is already a given, doctors here have released yet another “miracle” skin treatment, touted as the most advanced anti-wrinkle, anti-sag and skin brightening boost. PDRN (polydeoxyribonucleotide) therapy is a proprietary and registered drug that has been shown in studies as early as 2001 to have anti-inflammatory, anti-ischemic and wound healing properties. Many other studies that have followed have shown promising results for tissue repair in diabetic ulcers, bone and even the cornea. In Korea, and many parts of Asia, PDRN has found its niche in anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.    What Is Rejuran Healer? Rejuran Healer is an injectable polynucleotide (PN) skinbooster. PN chains are fragments of DNA derived from germ cells of salmon. These repair skin cells and faciliate collagen growth. While PDRN has been reliably used Continue Reading

The forties may reveal some signs of wear on our faces. Fine lines may look more obvious and the usual folds outside the eyes or on the forehead may be more noticeable. The skin may become more dull-looking as the skin renewal process slows down. Thankfully, besides turning back the clock in time, there are some things that we can do to maintain our youthful looks.   Botox Prejuvenation Wrinkles develop along usually predictable areas – lines of expression.

Unless you want to look like Frankenstein, it is probably better to go about this with small Botox injections into parts of the forehead, frown lines and outside the eyes to reduce the strength of these muscles. Botox is commonly misconstrued as unnatural-looking but in faces where the lines are not deep or only appear during strong expression, a little goes a long way and it can really delay the appearance of these depressing permanent wrinkles by Continue Reading
