Want clear, youthful skin? There are only 3 ingredients you need to look out for, says aesthetic nurse Mike Clague
Forget $200 department store serums that read like a third year biochem textbook. According to aesthetic nurse Mike Clague, of Melbourne’s Ashley Centre, keepingÂ skinÂ in mint, pretty-young-thing condition is deceptively simple.
â€œYou only need three products,â€ assures the author of new e-book 7 Steps To Radiant Skin (free at artistrie.com.au).
Vitamin C,Â or L-ascorbic acid, is an antioxidant, which effectively stops skin from â€œrustingâ€ when exposed to daylight,vitamin AÂ stimulates the body’s own production of new collagen, and asunscreenÂ that blocks both UVA and UVB rays thwarts the biggest wrinkle-inducer â€“ sun.
The tricky bit is dodging the women in steam-pressed white cotton en route to the shoe department.
â€œThe quantities of active ingredients in store-bought skin care products are much lower than those youâ€™ll find at clinics,â€ Clague says. If it’s namby-pamby enough to be with the lippies, itâ€™s probably not going to plump up much more than your credit card statement.
