Fighting Aging

Smoothing and Preventing Wrinkles

  • Choose the right antioxidant
    • Green tea extract called epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG:  “Research shows i’s amazingly potent at combating free radicals,” says dermatologist Macrene Alexiades, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center in New York City. A serum with EGCG is Paula’s Choice Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum ($36)
  • Look for a moisturizer with Gotu Kola
    • This tackles lines by triggering your skin’s collagen production without the chemical retinoids, dermatologists say gotu kola is a good way to go. One recommendation is Acure Day Cream ($16.99)
  • Make your own skin-plumping mask
    • Recipe is from Jeannette Graf, M.D., an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
    • Use once or twice a week
    • Mash up half a ripe papaya and half a ripe avocado, then stir in 2 oz plain yogurt.
    • Spread mix all over your face and leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse and apply moisturizer.

To Fade Spots and Even Skin Tone

  • Pick a plant based brightener
  • Spot-Treat with Lemon
    • DIY trick to correct discoloration, and if you have dark skin, stick with an over-the-counter treatment, as lemon could cause white spots.
    • Cut the lemon in half-inch slices and squeeze the juice from one slice onto a cotton ball(people with sensitive skin should dilute 1 tsp juice with 4 tsp water).
    • Dab the cotton ball on any dark spots, rewetting it with more juice for each spot.
    • Wait 20 minutes, rinse face with water and apply moisturizer.
    • Do daily or every three days if you have sensitive skin for six weeks; you may stop sooner if the spots fade before then.
