Three Musts for Bet­ter Skin

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty | News -

We asked celebrity der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Zein Obagi to share his tips. 1 CUT DOWN ON SU­GAR. “Eat a meal but taste dessert. Su­gar has no ben­e­fit, and is the ma­jor cause of in­flam­ma­tion in the body and gly­ca­tion (the break­ing down of col­la­gen) in our skin.” 2 YOUR SKIN ISN’T SEN­SI­TIVE. “There is no such thing as ‘sen­si­tive skin’. When skin gets weak­ened with age, un­suit­able prod­uct use and in­flam­ma­tion, it be­comes sen­si­tised and in­tol­er­ant.” 3 MOIS­TURIS­ERS ARE NOT A MUST. “Mois­turis­ers have no long-term ef­fects. When ap­plied on skin, the body gets a sig­nal that there is suf­fi­cient mois­ture and will not de­liver more, which will make your skin drier. How­ever, if your skin is very dry, you can use a mois­turiser on top of skin­care prod­ucts that work to strengthen and stim­u­late.”
