I came upon this article in one of Susanne Warfield’s recent newsletters and felt it was worth sharing.
Beauty Breakthroughs from the American Academy of Dermatology will change the way you view skin care
“Does anyone remember that hilarious, yet somewhat true, scene in the 2008 Sex and the City movie when Samantha chastises Carrie for becoming engaged to Mr. Big, and proposes Botox as a more viable option? She proudly states, “Honey, you know me, I don’t really believe in marriage. Now, Botox on the other hand, that works every time.” This may be a fictional scene from a movie, but the sentiment could not hold more true for many women today. “Looking and feeling younger” is a claim many beauty companies and plastic surgeons have used to steer women towards extremely expensive creams that sometimes have less than desirable results, or procedures that are uncomfortable and in some cases painful.’
“Well, mark your calendars because today the way you view your anti-aging routine will change forever. Researchers at the American Academy of Dermatology have discovered a new method using plant stem cell technology to extract antioxidants from plants in their most pure and stable form. This will allow for beauty products to be extremely effective in treating the signs of aging and cuts down on the contaminants, like pesticides and heavy metals, which can potentially be found in products today.’
“Looking to find the best anti-aging product right away? While more research is needed, it has been found that two of the most popular and beneficial antioxidants come from berry extracts (strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries) and soy extracts. Unfortunately, we all cannot hop into a time-machine and wind up back in high school, but with these beauty breakthroughs at least we have a chance of looking that way.”
