Slow Down Aging…

No Comments on Slow Down Aging…


Sharing is caring! Here at CosMedics we like to do our research and when informative studies such as the one below come forth, we like to share it with our valued patients…

Researchers in sunny Australia have used silicone moulds of subjects hands to demonstrate sunscreen’s ability to slow skin aging- at least in white people younger than 55 years.  Maria Hughes and colleagues at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research randomly assigned the participants to four groups: daily use of broad spectrum sunscreen (Spf 15+) and 30 mg of beta-carotene; daily sunscreen and placebo, discretionary sunscreen and 30 mg of beta-carotene; or discretionary sunscreen and placebo.

After 4.5 years, blinded assessors determined that skin aging was 24% less in the discretionary sunscreen group.  Beta-cartene supplementation had no overall effect on skin aging. -Annals of Internal Medicine (June)

Just another reason why we stress the importance of protecting your skin from the sun.  Come by our clinic and pick up a bottle of our Day Moisturizer SPF 41.  It’s amazing for all skin types and will provide the right protection for your delicate skin.
