With summer fast approaching, sun protection should be even more at the forefront of every Australian’s mind. But if your skin is showing signs of damage from summers past, the next generation of DNA skincare products could hold the solution.
Constant exposure to toxins, environmental pollutants and the harsh Australian sun can damage the skin’s DNA at a cellular level and accelerate the visible ageing process, leading to the formation of dark spots, wrinkles and fine lines.
While the skin does contain DNA repair enzymes that counteract this damage, scientists are now able to support the skin’s DNA by encapsulating these enzymes so that they can be applied topically to the face.
This exciting advancement was recently discussed on 7News, where it was explained that DNA repair enzymes enhance the skin’s ability to repair and defend cellular DNA, while encouraging the elimination of damaged DNA from cells. This has impressive anti-ageing benefits and helps to reverse existing sun damage.
As noted in our most recent newsletter, the Cosmetic Medicine Centre is now stocking DNA repair products from PRESCRIBEDsolutions. The science behind these products is exceptionally well researched. Clinical trials have found that after 12 weeks of use, they can produce a significant reduction in the visible signs of ageing and photodamage.
Our current favourites from this range are the Cream – No Sugar Triple-Action Anti-glycation Cream and the Urbane Renewal Triple-Action Antioxidant Serum.
This hydrating cream protects against ageing while repairing damaged DNA. Ideal for more mature skin, the Cream – No Sugar Triple-Action Anti-glycation Cream maintains skin suppleness and stimulates elastin production. Featuring shea butter, sunflower seeds and soluble collagen, this product works hard to keep your skin moisturised.
