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). Start here: Read More: Skin Crazes That Actually Work   CITY POLLUTION   “We used to think that UV rays were the only major threat to our skin outdoors,” says Dr Chua Han Boon, from SW1 Clinic. “Increasingly, data suggests that city pollution also plays a direct role in pigment changes Continue Reading

We Put Salmon DNA to the Test

BY LISA WILLIAMS The latest Korean craze Rejuran anti-ageing microinjections seems to be every youthful celebrity’s weapon du jour. However, my obsession with salmon as an anti-aging extraordinaire started much further back when I first read the book, The Wrinkle Cure, almost a decade ago by celebrity doctor Nicholas Perricone (yes, he of the famed Perricone skincare line). In it, he introduced salmon as a superb source of anti-inflammatory, anti-aging nutrients. In fact, Dr Perricome was a firm advocate of Wild Salmon as it contains essential fats and powerful antioxidants such as the carotenoid, astaxanthin, that have important anti-inflammatory properties. How does this relate to aging? Decades of research show that chronic, sub-clinical inflammation is the single greatest precipitator of aging and age-related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, certain forms of cancer, and wrinkled, sagging skin. What this means is that it isn’t the big events that make us look at an old leather handbag at 60, it is the small daily insults on our skin that Continue Reading

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. You may want to consider Professional Chemical Peels that are excellent in lightening the post inflammatory marks and reducing the oiliness, which also helps to control new acne outbreaks.

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
