The Most Important Step to Long-Term Skin Health

A life certainty: skin ages. It happens to the best of us. Despite the inevitable, there is hope. The most important step to long-term skin health is to be proactive in caring for your skin.

Laurence Dryer, Chief Scientist and Head of Product Development at Obagi Medical Products, shares why it's never too early for preventative measures against the signs of skin aging and how you can continue to take years off your appearance with the proper care.

4 Quick Tips to Prevent Skin Aging

  1. Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Eat healthy, drink lots of water, exercise and get plenty of sleep.
  2. Moisturize daily. Using a quality moisturizer, like Obagi Hydrate which contains unique ingredients with skin plumping properties, will help smooth out the appearance of your skin.
  3. Limit Sun Exposure. Wear a hat whenever possible. Use sunscreen daily, even if it doesn’t look like the sun is shining. UV rays are always present. An SPF 30 or higher is recommended for proper sun protection.
  4. Find an AM/PM skin care regimen. Talk to a skin care professional about a skin care regimen that is right for your skin type. Be sure to ask for products most effective for your specific skin conditions.

How do Antioxidants Help With Skin Aging?

Antioxidants are shown to neutralize and slow down the effects of free radicals. They also help fight the elements that lead to collagen breakdown. Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is one of the most proven forms of antioxidants. It supports collagen synthesis, calms inflammation, brightens skin, retains moisture, enhances UV protection, and complements vitamin E function – which is essential for the maintenance of healthy skin.

Do you protect your skin daily? Don't wait. Start early and continue daily for years of optimum skin health and a youthful complexion.
