Over time our skin begins to lose some of its youthful texture and tone. Fine lines and wrinkles develop along with age spots, blemishes, uneven coloration, and rough texture.
There are many causes of these effects on our skin. Some of these factors we can control such as the amount of sun exposure, smoking, what we eat and drink, and what products we use on the skin. Other processes such as aging changes and genetic factors are largely out of our control.
In general, maintaining youthful tone, texture, and coloration of our skin is possible with preventive care. Limiting unprotected sun exposure, having a healthy diet and weight, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding smoking are some of the best skin treatments available.
The use of dairy products to cleanse, tone, moisturize and protect the skin from ultraviolet light damage is also beneficial. Cosmeceuticals, upon recommendation from your skin-care physician, are medical-grade products available without a prescription that can help treat individual skin conditions. Our skin-care lines, such as La Roche-Posay, offer products tailor-made for your skin type.
Your physician may also recommend prescription-strength medicine for some skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, photoaged skin or hyperpigmentation. Often chemical peels are beneficial to rejuvenate aged skin when combined with cosmeceutical skin treatment.
