The Top 5 Anti-Aging Skin Care Tips - Dr. Anthony Youn

everybody dr. Anthony on America's

holistic plastic surgeon with you today

today I'm going to cover five anti-aging

skin care tips my top five skincare tips

and these are ways to get your skin to

look healthy and to turn back the clock

five simple tips that you can start as

early as today well my number five tip

is to try all cleansing if you have oily

skin well a lot of people who have oily

skin they try to get rid of that oil and

many of them will use alcohol-based

owners or astringent

as a way to remove oil the problem with

using these types of astringent sand

alcohol-based toners is that you may

remove that oil instantly or immediately

but long-term it creates this feedback

loop where your skin notices that the

oil has been removed and it creates more

oil so even though you may be getting

rid of the oil temporarily by using

those toners and astringents

the skin will actually react by creating

more oil and your oily problem actually

can get worse so one solution

interestingly enough is to use oil

cleansing and this is very popular in

Korea in other countries where our oil

cleansers and you can find them at your

local drugstore or at department stores

oil cleansers can actually work to help

clean oily skin without making it feel

more oily and without creating that kind

of feedback loop of creating more oil

afterwards so if you haven't tried it it

it may sound weird like geez my skin is

oily why would I use an oil cleanser

just try it because a lot of people find

that their acne can even improve from it

well my number four tip is to exfoliate

your skin ideally two to three times a

week if you've got normal skin once a

week if you have sensitive skin the

reason why it's important to exfoliate

is because when we're young our skin

exfoliate or turns over every six to

eight weeks this is kind of the normal

cellular turnover that we have when

we've got young radiant youthful skin

and that cellular turnover keeps our

skin feeling smooth and soft and gives

it that radiant look well as we get


that process slows down and it starts to

take ten weeks 12 weeks even longer for

our skin to turn over and so then we

start developing this buildup of dead

skin cells on the surface of our skin

that's one reason why as we get older

our skin feels rougher it gets more

wrinkly and it doesn't look as youthful

well when you exfoliate your skin and

you can do it with a simple scrub you

can do it with the Clarisonic when you

exfoliate your skin a couple of times a

week it gets rid of those upper layer

skin cells that have been built up over

time and it actually sends a cellular

signal to the deeper skin cells to cause

it to exfoliate and increase that

cellular turnover so by exfoliating

regularly you're actually gonna cause

your skin to start turning over more

quickly and get you back to every six to

eight week cellular turnover that you

would ideally like so once again

exfoliate two to three times a week if

you've got normal skin exfoliate once a

week if you've got sensitive skin and

you know you're over exfoliating if you

find that your skin is getting kind of

irritated after doing it and read it

it's shouldn't it should be a very nice

and comfortable process for your skin

all right my number 3 tip is to use an

SPF 30 sunscreen at least and to avoid

oxybenzone well you've heard from

dermatologists and plastic surgeons for

years to use sunscreen and to use it

every day because that's the main ager

of our skin is ultraviolet radiation

from the Sun and all you have to do is

compare the skin of your face and of

your chest to the skin of your butt to

know that that ultraviolet radiation can

make a big difference because most

likely the skin of your butt looks and

feels much nicer than the skin let's say

of your chest or of your hands or even

of your face well unfortunately not all

sunscreens are created equal and

oxybenzone is one that I strongly

discourage you from using number one

oxybenzone is a known hormone disruptor

it can actually mimic hormones in the

bloodstream and especially you do not

want to apply this to your children

because they're young they're growing

their hormones are still changing you

don't want to throw in a hormone

disruptor like oxybenzone into their

system the second reason why you have

one avoid oxybenzone is because it is

harmful to the environment actually

coral reefs if you go if you go out it

would say into the ocean on vacation try

to buy a sunscreen without actually been

zone because you don't want to disrupt

the coral reefs with it and there are a

lot of places that won't actually allow

you to use sunscreens with that if

you're if you're in the beach and in the

water so try to use an SPF at least

thirty sunscreen every day avoid that

oxybenzone well my number two tip is to

use a combination of vitamin C and

vitamin E every morning so these are

antioxidants and most skincare lines I'd

say almost all of them have a vitamin C

serum that they recommend and vitamin C

is great it helps to fight free radicals

and get your skin protected from damage

throughout the day but there are studies

that show that when you combine vitamin

C with vitamin E you get a synergistic

antioxidant effect in in essence they

combine together to work even better

together than when they are alone there

are a couple of them on the market today

CEF Ehrlich by SkinCeuticals is very

very popular I have my own Eun Byul E C

e antioxidant serum okay this is made

with natural and organic ingredients

that we have as well so instead of just

going with a simple vitamin C if you can

get a combination vitamin C and vitamin

E antioxidant you're gonna get that

synergistic power and much better

antioxidant protection now what is my

number one skincare tip well if you've

been following me a lot you probably can

guess it is to use a retinol okay if you

had to pick one anti-aging cream to use

long-term that is safe that's relatively

inexpensive that can reduce fine lines

that can fade age spots that can thicken

the dermis

deeper layer of the skin that can

exfoliate the skin it is a retinol and

what I recommend is for all of you as

long as you tolerate it because there

are some people with real sensitive skin

that can't but as long as you tolerate

it try to use a retinol based cream

every evening okay because that is going

to be the best anti-aging cream that we

know of scientifically and the great

thing about retinol is it's not that

expensive there are so many creams out

there they're sold at these luxury

department stores for hundreds and

hundreds of dollars for even one ounce

they are not as scientifically proven as

retinol there are a ton of companies

that have their own retinol products you

can find them at your local drugstore at

your local department store I've got my

own retinol moisturizer from you and

beauty this is made with natural and

organic ingredients which sets this

apart from a lot of the other retinol

moisturizers out there but even if you

don't use mine you use a retinol

moisturizer every night you do that and

you're gonna be ahead of everybody else

so those are my top five tips if you're

interested in trying the retinol

moisturizer or the C ent oxidant serum

or any of the other skincare products we

have they're made with natural organic

ingredients you use a coupon code 20 off
