All of us—even product junkies and those lucky enough to have won the complexion genetic lottery—can use a little help when it comes to designing a skin care regimen. What do you actually need? Ideally, a little assistance in slowing down the effects of environmentally triggered and natural aging, reliable ways to fight sun exposure and moisture loss and high-intensity methods of erasing past damage. Spring’s new treatment items contain the latest ingredients, as well as some tried-and-true techniques, to help skin get healthy—and stay that way.
PREVENT The sad truth is that even if we remained inside during daylight hours or covered ourselves from head to toe, we’d still see the signs of aging. Assaults from the environment and just plain living can lead to tired-looking, slack-textured skin. Enter antioxidants, which help prevent collagen loss, sun spots, epidermal thinning and inflammation by seeking out and disarming free radicals. Lancaster’s new 365 Cellular Elixir is made with a mix of antioxidants such as green tea and green coffee, plus photosomes and ultrasomes to slow down and repair DNA damage. Dermatologist Arielle Kauvar, a clinical associate professor at New York University and director of NY Laser & Skin Care, recommends a one-two punch of sunscreen boosted with antioxidants, like Mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30, made with extracts of dark chocolate and blueberries. “Sun protection alone will block UVA and UVB rays, but nothing is 100 percent effective,” she says. “Antioxidants help zap free radical damage caused by any rays that get through.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
