life of a dermatologist vlogs and

dermatologist skincare tips and skincare

ingredient favorites it's not uncommon

to be concerned about the skin signs of


these include wrinkles sagging and

discoloration while there's no proven

treatment or strategy to completely

reverse skin aging there are some things

that you can do that will benefit the

health of your skin

first and foremost focus on what you put

into your body just as much as what you

put on your skin now with regard to

nutrition and aging one phenomenon

that's quite well studied is the

formation of advanced glycation

end-products or ages advanced glycation


accumulate as we age and explain a lot

of diseases of aging not only wrinkling

and decreased elasticity of the skin but

also cataracts heart disease and

diabetes glycation occurs when a sugar

molecule like fructose or glucose binds

to a protein this generates an advanced

glycation end product that's

inflammatory and can damage collagen in

the skin advanced glycation end-products

can either be produced endogenously as a

result of high blood sugar levels or

consumed exogenously and the foods that

we eat these end products cross-linked

the collagen and elastic fibers in our

skin and lead to wrinkles and decreased

elasticity as well as sagging and

discoloration now advanced glycation end

products are highly stable and almost

impossible to eradicate common sources

of advanced glycation end products

include packaged crackers brown colas

sugary doughnuts and unfortunately

barbeque grill meats these advanced

glycation praten products are absorbed

from the gut and pro-inflammatory and

also endogenous glycation can occur as a

result of high blood sugar levels from

eating a lot of sugary of processed


it's estimated that glycation of

collagen in the skin occurs at about 3.7

percent per year and diets that are high

in processed sugary foods can increase

the rate of glycation also ultraviolet

radiation can increase the rate

location of collagen in the skin so that

brings me to my next point

ultraviolet radiation is the number one

culprit in aging our skin Sun damages

elastin and causes loss of collagen

synthesis this leads to drooping of the

jawline wrinkles discoloration and

thickening of the skin but most

importantly beyond cosmetic concerns

ultraviolet radiation causes skin

cancers however it's simply not doable

to just avoid the Sun so what can you do

make sure you apply a broad-spectrum SPF

30 or higher sunscreen to your face

and Sun exposed areas on the hands don't

forget to apply the sunscreen to your

neck and ears as these are common sites

of aging as well as pre malignant skin

cancers donning a broad brimmed hat and

long sleeves with a tight weave you can

also provide protection from ultraviolet

radiation exercise in the early morning

and avoid going outdoors between the

hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. as this is

when the Sun is most potent in addition

to daily sunscreen use probably the best

studied cream for anti-aging aging is a

retinoid a retinoid is a vitamin a

derivative that boosts collagen

production increases skin cell turnover

decreases oil production breaks up

clogged pores and overall can improve

the texture of your skin ask your doctor

or treating health care provider for

prescription retinoid is right for you

when starting a retinoid it's important

to follow the directions carefully

irritation is a common side-effect so go

slowly start with a small amount

retinoids should be applied to a freshly

washed face in the evening before

bedtime as they can become unstable when

exposed to UV light apply a moisturizer

on following application of the retinoid

to decrease irritation of the skin

remember topical retinoids

are not recommended for women who are

pregnant nursing or contemplating

conceiving my next tip is this in terms

of anti-aging skincare consistency is

key not cost you don't need an expensive

over-the-top skincare regimen to take

care of the health of your skin and

promote anti-aging skin care in addition

to starting every day with a protective


screen make sure you wash the makeup off

of your face at night as we sleep the

skin turns over and as we age the rate

at which our skin turns over slows so

don't increase the work of turnover for

your skin by leaving a thick layer of

makeup on and lastly be smart about what

cosmetic procedures you choose and as I

said while nothing can completely

reverse the clock on Aging these choices

can help slow down the rate first of all

try peel as you age your skin turnover

rate decreases getting a peel can help

exfoliate the skin and make it appear

brighter and more lustrous a chemical

peel is a deeper process that does the

same thing but may also boost collagen

production and lastly find out if you're

a candidate for laser resurfacing a

relatively new procedure called

fractional resurfacing can actually

increase collagen production and improve

the look of aged skin resurfacing can

improve skin texture while minimizing

wrinkles discoloration and old acne

scars all right guys that's going to
