Biomed­i­cal Em­po­rium Dr Pre­to­rius grows skin for a liv­ing, lit­er­ally, since re­gen­er­a­tion is the fo­cus of her cru­cial, life-chang­ing work with burn vic­tims. Here are her skin-lov­ing se­crets.

1Use sun­screen South African women are most af­fected by pig­men­ta­tion, dark spots and blem­ishes, which are caused by harsh UVA and UVB rays. These strain your skin’s meta­bolic ac­tiv­ity. Since pre­ven­tion is al­ways the best route, I’m a big be­liever in us­ing an SPF and keep­ing out of the sun.

Go for makeup loaded with an­tiox­i­dants Makeup can ex­pe­ri­ence ox­i­da­tion when it’s ex­posed to oxy­gen. This hap­pens when oxy­gen changes the chem­i­cal prop­er­ties of the prod­uct (change of colour or sep­a­ra­tion is a sign). Makeup with­out an­tiox­i­dants can ex­pe­ri­ence spon­ta­neous ox­i­da­tion dur­ing ap­pli­ca­tion, and this is bad for your skin.

3In­vest in vi­ta­min A Retinol (vi­ta­min A) is best. It’s a multi-bioac­tive mol­e­cule – it can treat acne, age­ing and pig­men­ta­tion. It also pro­motes cel­lu­lar growth.
