How to Have Flawless Skin at Any Age
Audra Lowe: Well speaking of your appearance you might be getting older but you don’t have to look like it. Renowned dermatologist Patricia Wexler is here, Doctor Patricia Wexler is here and she’s going to show her secrets for women in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s you’ve seen her name on quite a few products out there and I’m glad to have you on the studio
Patricia Wexler: Thank you for inviting me.
Audra Lowe: I’ve been doing this for quite a while and you’re talking about right.
Patricia Wexler: Yes, I do.
Audra Lowe: Okay so when you’re in your 20’s the lifestyle have its start to show on your face a little bit, right?
Patricia Wexler: They do, you know you’re out clubbing, you’re smoking, you’re going into the sun and saying I’ll quit next year. So you’re starting to get muddy complexion and a little bit of pigmentation, starts especially if you’re on hormone replacement like birth control pills. You get some brown spots, maybe a little pigmentation on your lip. So you're going to want to exfoliate, maybe doing microabrasion at home, microdermabrasion or--
Audra Lowe: In your 20’s you could start doing this.
Patricia Wexler: Oh yeah you can do that, you can do like glycolic pills but you can get puffy eyes because you’re staying up late and it’s --
Audra Lowe: Is that what you’ll have the teabags there?
Patricia Wexler: That’s why we have the teabags you’re going to keep this in ice cold tea bags have caffeine, and caffeine is going to take that water out from underneath the eyes.
Audra Lowe: Acne starts kicking in a lot of woman in their 30’s.
Patricia Wexler: Acne kicks in your 30’s, you could be having fertility treatments, you could be going on or off the peel, trying to get pregnant, you can use pills at home, you like an Alpha-beta pill, you can exfoliate, you want to use something like the tens a light, the Tansu light. The Tansu is an LED light which flashes blue light for acne. It’s going to kill the bacteria on your skin. It’s going to clear up lesions you have and prevent new ones from coming.
Audra Lowe: I’m just thinking I’m just putting this light up to my face is it really working a bit.
Patricia Wexler: Oh, no it is really working I was one of the first people to work with the LED Net technology.
Audra Lowe: And speaking of the 30’s you kind of feel like you’re on that awkward teenage stage again because you’re in the middle like you said the acne its like your skins act and up all over again.
Patricia Wexler: Because your hormones are changing, you may have mood, you might have stress. There are so many reasons for acne and you just have to treat it no matter what the cause is.
Audra Lowe: Another one that your tips that I love is to wear sunglasses not to look cool outside, not to look chic but it protects the area under your eyes very delicate area.
Patricia Wexler: Because this is the thinnest skin on your face so you really want to protect this so you wear those jockey or sunglasses and make sure it says UVA UVB protection. You want to get polarized lenses so you’re not getting sun and you protect because you’re going to squint in the sun. So if you’re wearing sunglasses you’re not going to squint and you’re not going to keep making those squinting.
Audra Lowe: Well speaking of squinting also smiling a lot, you’re doing a lot of smiling by the time you’re 40.
Patricia Wexler: By the time you’re 40 you’ve made a lot of movement on your face and you deserve what you can do for it.
Audra Lowe: So what do you do when--
Patricia Wexler: So what we haven’t mentioned you need to use your sunscreens, so make sure using a high number, the high number gives you better protection because you can use and stay out longer in the sun and you want something that feels elegant so you use it. So the Neutrogena dry touches are really good one and it’s an SPF 70 and it’s got Helioplex which stays stable in the sun.
Audra Lowe: I have to ask you though because you got a line of products, do we use your line of products on your face only?
Patricia Wexler: I have to tell you I love my line of products and it’s got an SPF 30 and I use it 24/7. I use my products all day.
Audra Lowe: We love a woman to believe at her own products too.
Patricia Wexler: And I have people tell me they take it to the Caribbean and if they just reapply it every few hours.
Audra Lowe: Why don’t you just take this and put it under the desk and take it--well, thank you very much.
Patricia Wexler: Well that’s one great for the 40’s because it’s got anti-glycation technology.
Audra Lowe: You see I’m taking easy way because out of time right now. We’re going to talk about this later.
