I highly recommend you opt for the following skincare ingredients when looking to maintain a youthful, healthy, and bright skin tone;

Vitamin A or retinol

Retinol is highly effective in boosting collagen formation, preventing wrinkles, fine lines, and lowering pigmentation on the skin, which can aid in smoothening, lightening, and maintaining young skin. I recommend you apply skincare products containing retinol at night for quick, effective results as it can increase skin sensitivity when used during the day.

Vitamin C

One of the best ingredients for a youthful and vibrant appearance. It contains antioxidant properties that can stimulate collagen production, which helps in providing a healthy, elastic, and firm skin. Vitamin C can speed up cell regeneration, increase SPF or sunscreen efficiency, lower dark spots, and improve aging symptoms such as wrinkles, and lines, making the skin appear younger and healthier.

Other ingredients include; hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, AHAs, niacinamide, and ceramides.

Using the acquired academic and professional experience, I advise patients with various complaints about mental health - depressed mood, nervousness, lack of energy and interest, sleep disorders, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts and anxieties, difficulty concentrating, and stress. In my free time, I love to paint and go on long walks on the beach. One of my latest obsessions is sudoku – a wonderful activity to calm an unease mind.
