Doctor visits are no more fun nowadays than they were when you were a kid. And while your Xanax refill might keep your mind from going off the deep-end, all that stress is going to show up on your skin soon enough. Thankfully, dermatologists don’t seem to want you to see you either, and so concoct scientifically advanced beauty products to help when your problem goes from pimples to wrinkles.
Take Dr. Brandt’s Lineless Anti-Glycation Serum. Gly-what?! Apparently, eating a lot of sugary shit breaks down skin’s elasticity on your face (as we already know it does elsewhere). Brandt’s serum, which contains his signature blend of natural antioxidants green tea and grapeseed extract, and other, unpronounceable anti-inflammatory agents, tightens things up.
Most anti-age creams, gels, etc. focus on your eyes—which is lovely
—but it does your lips a, er, disservice. Dr. Dennis Gross of MD Skincare is taking the matter very seriously. His new Serious Lip Treatment increases circulation to, smoothes, and hydrates your lips with Vitamin C, peptides, and ceramides (all good things)… so you don’t have to subject your smackers to spicy lip gloss or, worse, go under the needle.
With stress, the pack habit that took too long to quit, and apparently sugar too working against our skin, now add electromagnetic waves and urban pollution to the list. Pick your battles? No need. Clarins’s Dr. Lionel de Benetti has created an exclusive defense complex, Expertise 3P, comprised in part by rare plants attuned to handling hostile environments. Simply spray on a shield of free radical fighters and stay on your cell phone. Products
