Skincare for Mom

http://blog.bergen.com/itworksforme/144/skincare-for-mom/ Posted: February 17, 2012 I’ve fallen into the trap many times of overspending on skincare products. If it costs more it must work better right? Not necessarily. For an upcoming story on skincare in March’s 201 Family I asked dermatologist Michele Grodberg, founder of MGMD Dermatology in Englewood to recommend products for moms who don’t want to spend a ton of money for good skin. Here is what she said: “One ingredient I look for in a moisturizer is hyaluronic acid, a humectant which attracts water and makes the moisturizer more effective.  I also prefer moisturizers with antioxidants to help combat environmental damage to the skin.  I try to avoid certain ingredients, for example, sensitive skin individuals should avoid fragrance, parabens, lanolin, and propylene glycol.” Daily Moisturizers with sunscreen:  These do not provide enough sun protection to replace a good sunscreen on a sunny day but they will provide some protection and it is a good habit to wear sunscreen everyday. Olay Complete Sensitive Skin All Day UV moisturizer SPF 15 – Oil-free and PABA –free. Purpose dual treatment Moisture Lotion with SPF 15 Fragrance Free Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 – Helps to reduce redness.

Daily Moisturizer no sunscreen:

Cetaphil  Moisturizing Lotion- A great choice for dry sensitive skin.  The basic formula contains no sunscreen

Anti-Aging Moisturizer:

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream- Contains a low concentration of Retinol to reduce fine lines.  This is a good starter cream for someone who has never used Retinol in the past or has sensitive skin because a higher strength Retinol can be irritating to the skin.

Body Moisturizer:

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream – Contains ceramides and cholesterol to help rebuild the skin barrier and helps severely dry skin.  Does not contain sunscreen but does contain Parabens. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion –  also good for kids Curel Fragrance Free Moisturizing Lotion

THE SCIENCE BEHIND SKIN REJUVENATION: HEAT SHOCK PROTEINS (“HSPs”)

HSPs are an important component of treatment strategies to address the effects of the aging process and reduce signs of maturing skin. HSPs occur when skin is subjected to heat and responds to the small injuries resulting from the heat by repairing itself and restoring its connective tissue. Many treatments at MGMD Dermatology utilize this process, yielding skin rejuvenation including improvement in fine lines, skin tone, texture, and elasticity.
