RealAge Tip of the Day

Take Back Summer Damage

Did you spend a little too much time in the sun this summer? Here's a pain-free way to undo some of the damage: Moisturize.

That's right. Research shows it really does help improve the condition of your skin. After 25 weeks of regular use by women in a study, 3-D texture measurements revealed less photo damage and blotchiness and fewer fine lines and coarse wrinkles. And this kind of moisturizer may have an edge. (see below ↓)

RealAge Benefit: Safely getting enough sun can make your RealAge as much as 1.7 years younger.

Try It: Undo a summer in the sun with DDF Glycolic Body Lotion
. This silky, nongreasy lotion is great for almost all skin types (except the very sensitive). Plus, it has a potent 12.5 percent antiaging combination of glycolic acid and lactic acid to help bring your skin back to dewier days.

More about this Tip: Waning Wrinkles

Any moisturizer can help improve your skin. But a moisturizer that contains an antiaging ingredient can be particularly effective. Antiaging ingredients typically found in moisturizers include glycolic acid, lactic acid, citric acid, and salicylic acid. (Learn how AHAs and other antiaging ingredients work.) Women who used a cream with glycolic acid for 25 weeks saw even better results than the regular moisturizer group.

Thanks Kaville! Teonaka, Bio Oil also works for acne scars. I recommended it to my friend, and it did really good job on fading acne scars.
