patricia wexler - skincare tips for your 20's, 30's, and 40's

I used to have an Uncle Louie.

He was the nicest guy around, a true Italian through and through.

You know how people always take a couple of years off of their age, to seem younger?

Well, Uncle Louie had a better idea.

He would tell everyone he was ten years older than he actually was.

Think about it. It's genius actually.

Say you're really 35...tell everyone you're 45. Believe me, they won't be able to get over how young you look.

And that's the reaction Uncle Louie got, pretty much everywhere he went.

In case you really want to be able to defy nature and really look like you are ten years younger than your actual age...here's some tips from the phenomenal Dr. Patricia Wexler.

In our 20’s, sun exposure may have already caused freckling, pigmentation and fine lines most obviously around the eyes.

Tip: A good skincare regimen including daily exfoliation and moisturizing with an SPF of 30 will ensure youthful skin and thwart wrinkles from developing.

Tip: Use at least one anti-aging product to prevent further damage to collagen and elastic tissue.

In our 30’s, etched lines become more exaggerated especially around the eyes, and forehead. Stress and hormone manipulation may require adult acne relief. Men are particularly prone to follculitius of the beard, which can be treated with topical salicylic acid, exfoliation, and topical antibiotics.

Tip: Avoid smoking, wear large sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection to protect the delicate eye area.

Tip: Use antibacterial but not drying solutions. It is vital to incorporate your acne regimen into your anti-aging routine.

In our 40’s, lines previously only seen with movement become visible at rest.

Tip: Use products that contain peptides for immediate relaxation of lines while promoting long term collagen and elastic stimulation. In addition, line fillers containing dermaxyl and polysilicone will give immediate improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

I'd like to thank Dr. Wexler, for taking the time to give us this great information and I'd like to thank my Uncle Louie, for being the coolest Uncle that ever lived.
