Ofri Bass – Clarifying Skin Issue
There is no vacation from skincare. Especially during the summertime, when the Israeli sun is blazing, and our delicate skin needs intense protection. Yet, who wants to be weighed down by layers of product? So, what are we to do? How do we best protect our skin from the sun, both during and after exposure? Do we always need to use moisturizer, even during extreme heat and/or humidity? How important is sunscreen? These are just some of the questions I often hear from patients.
In the scientific community, anti-aging research refers exclusively to slowing, preventing and/or reversing the aging process. In creating our smart cosmetics, we have turned to the most trustworthy of authorities: Mother Nature. She knows exactly what she is doing. Nature has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. So, we have applied her wisdom to the creation of our anti-aging products. With the help of nanotechnology which strengthens and enhances natural raw materials, we have produced trans-dermal anti-aging cosmetics that penetrate the skin’s layers to stimulate and actually reverse the aging process. If your skin is important to you, and if you want to protect it for years to come, then our smart products are for you.
During perimenopause, women often experience an imbalance of Yin and Yang which can contribute to the drying and aging of our skin. This period of transition can also be a great opportunity to re-nourish, replenish and revitalize the skin. But the sooner we start caring for our skin, the more far-reaching the results.
Vitamin A is one of the most widely used ingredients in the skincare industry. Because it helps prevent and postpone premature cell aging, Vitamin A actually improves the health and appearance of your skin. But recently, an ancient Chinese botanical has been making quite the buzz in the skincare circles. Bu Gu Zhi, a phytochemical extracted from the seeds of the Babchi plant (Psoralea corylifolia), mimics the effect, as well as matches the benefits, of Vitamin A.
That is a question I hear over and over again. Let me start by saying that less is best. We should avoid washing our face too many times a day, and that goes for all skin types. Our skin produces healthy oils, a sort of natural flora cream, that help protect and keep it balanced. So over-cleansing can actually be harmful to your skin.
