Father Time doesn't call the shots when it comes to your skin!


Many of us are under the impression that when it comes to skincare  “Father Time calls the shots.” I'm here to tell you that you call the shots when it comes to aging...not father time!!

Studies show that as much as 80% of our skins appearance is caused by our sun habits not the passage of time. 

According to dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, "dermatologists once believed that 80% of a person’s lifetime sun damage occurred by age 18 however, we now know that only 20% of lifetime sun damage occurs by age 23, with 10% accumulating per decade thereafter."

Even if you didn't use sunscreen in your early years, you can fight and reverse the signs of aging going forward. 

My favorite regimen to use to help reverse the signs of sun damage is REVERSE regimen by Rodan + Fields.


This regimen helps "clean the slate". REVERSE helps erase the appearance of premature aging, including brown spots, dullness and discoloration. It exfoliates, visibly brightens, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and defends against sun exposure.

Most importantly as summer approaches (if the snow if Canada ever clears) don't skip the daily sunscreen. 
 Whether you are sitting in a sunny office, commuting on the highway or walking the dog, if you neglect to protect yourself from daily sun damage, you're putting your skin at risk for greater photo-aging in the long run.
