To have radiant and healthy skin all year round, it is important that we take care of ourselves both inside and out. Inside, taking care of our hydration, drinking enough water throughout the day and avoiding products that contain a lot of salt. And on the outside, giving the skin all the ingredients it needs and taking care of external agents that can damage it.
According to what dra. Rocío Rivera, vice president of scientific communications for L'Oreal Paris, studies say that more than 90% of skin aging is not internal to our genes, but rather the fault of the sun. For this reason we must take care of it, protecting it with appropriate creams with protection factors, as well as applying creams and serums that contain ingredients such as glycolic acid, such as the new Revitalift Derm Intensives 10% Pure Glycolic Acid serum.
"Glycolic acid is like a dermatologist's secret. This acid, I explain, is like cleaning a glass. You have a dirty glass, which is like the surface of our skin that has a lot of dead cells stuck to it and the acid dissolves the glue between those cells and when it dissolves, it generates a reaction that causes the cells below to come out. And over time they help you with small lines of expression, "explained the expert.
Another advice that the doctor shared if you want to take care of your skin on a daily basis, is to use these three basic ingredients and that will help improve the appearance of the skin: vitamin C, which helps prevent wrinkles, retinol and glycolic acid, since mentioned.
