Some people think you need to go to great lengths to fight the effects of aging skin. Part of the Di Morelli philosophy is to keep things simple (we lead pretty busy lives as it is!). This is why we promote simple skin care routines to achieve the effects you are looking for. We know if you’re using the right product, a little goes a long way.
With our Mini Kits, we focused on simplifying the simple skin care regime even further. Each Mini Kit has only three steps to promote healthy skin for four common skin concerns: dry skin, oily skin, acne prone and all skin types.
In our last post we discussed the causes of aging skin, now let’s look at three steps you can take, using our active ingredients, to help reduce and even reverse the signs of aging when used regularly.*
Vitamin C Serum for Face and Eye
As a philosophy we consistently promote incorporating a topical Vitamin C serum into a daily skin care routine because we know the benefits are manifold to skin health. One of the most drastic improvements is its collagen and elastin producing effects. Collagen is responsible for the skin’s firmness and elastin helps to keep your skin tight. As you age, your own collagen and elastin break down. By using products that help to stimulate their production, you are preventing and correcting the signs of aging.*
It can help skin look younger, sometimes years younger, depending on when you incorporate it daily into your skin regime and how often. For more information about our Vitamin C Serum click here.
In the media Retinol is often touted as the best anti-aging ingredient, and for good reason. Retinol has the ability to penetrate the skin to the dermis. In doing so, it can stimulate collagen and elastin, which helps to keep the skin firm and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As far as finding the ultimate product for simple skin care for aging skin goes, this is it.* Our Retinol Serum also contains vitamin C and co-enzyme Q10 which help correct damage in the skin.
As the saying goes, your best defense is a good offense. And in the world of skin care, that is a high quality broad spectrum SPF. Since 95% of accelerated skin aging comes from sun exposure, it makes sense to block out UV radiation before it damages your skin cells.
There are two types of UV Radiation to consider – UVA and UVB.
UVA radiation has a longer wavelength than UVB and its effect penetrates down to the dermis. Once in the dermis UVA disrupts DNA bonds and releases free radicals. These free radicals cause all the damage. Sunscreens that contain antioxidants like the Di Morelli SPF35 decrease the amount and effect of free radicals, resulting in less DNA damage.
Our SPF 35 with Vitamin E has two important ingredients that block and prevent damage. Zinc Oxide, which physically blocks both UVA and UVB rays, and Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E) which has strong antioxidant properties. The latter doubly protects skin from the harmful effects of the sun because it attacks free radicals that may have escaped the zinc oxide.
In fact, our SPF35 works triple-fold for anti-aging. It contains mega moisturizer Panthenol, also known as pro-vitamin B5 or Pantothenic Acid. Keeping skin moisturized helps prevent premature aging, and that is exactly what this magical ingredient does. It is an effective hydrator because it is easily absorbed and gets deep into the lower layers of the skin.
