When we are 16 years old, we never think about sun damage and aging skin. In my youth, I spent many hours swimming, boating, and playing along the shores of the lake near our home. Never thought about sunscreen in those days! I never burned, but I always became quite tan by the end of a summer living outdoors.
Jump forward 40 years or more, and my skin began to show the effects of the sun. Sun damage showed up as dark spots and patches of roughness.
Was it too late to turn back the hands of time?
In my late 40’s I started using skincare developed not by a cosmetic company, but by a health sciences company: USANA Health Sciences. I loved it, but was not totally convinced that a skincare system could actually repair the sun damage of my own skin. Soon after I started using the SENSÉ™ regimen, I had a skin analysis done. Yes sir! There was a positive confirmation of sun damage over the entire face, although my skin did not feel as dry.
Move forward after 10 years of using SENSÉ™ most of the time (I’m not so disciplined as some when it comes to lotions). A friend and I attended the open house of a local medical spa. We had a wonderful morning learning ways we could be pampered with medical skin treatments, massages, and mani/pedicures. They were also offering a complete skin analysis in order to sell their own line of skin care. I decided, once again, to have my own skin checked- just for fun.
Result: no more sun damage! Well, at least for most of my face. The area right around the eye lashes and on the eyelids still showed some damage. Oh, yeah! I never use any product that close to my eyes! Could it be the SENSÉ™ that repaired the damage?
What was the true cause of the improved health of my aging skin?
First of all, I have to note that the basis of healthy skin is greatly influenced on our nutrition: the foods we eat and the supplements we take. And yes, I have been much more focused about eating healthy with plenty of fruits and vegetables. And I have been consistent in nourishing my body with high quality supplements, including both antioxidants and minerals that support skin health.
That being said,
Our skin is capable of absorbing many chemicals, whether they be nutrients, prescription compounds, or toxins. Read more about toxins in many common skin care products.
What is the SENSÉ™ Difference?
Among the many cutting-edge innovations of the Sensé skin-care product line, one stands out:
- Self-Preserving Technology: a patented blend of botanicals, antioxidants, and active ingredients that keep every SENSÉ™ product fresh without the need for harsh chemical preservatives or added parabens. Containing only pure ingredients, the products are more gentle and healthy for your skin and your body.
SENSÉ™ skin-care line contains two unique topical nutrition blends based on clinically proven studies and well-established dermatological and nutritional science that work synergistically to nourish and protect the health and look of your skin:
I understand that not everyone may care about looking younger, but I still believe that everyone should pay closer attention to what they are using on their skin everyday. Teens are using 15 to 25 products a day! Men are also beginning to use more and more products. And women fill the bathroom shelves with multiple products, from shampoos to lotions.
Wouldn’t you be interested in finding the safest ingredients available? Bea Kinnear has written a book on the subject of safe and healthy skin care. If you are interested in the health of your skin, I recommend it highly:
“As the consumer, you have thousands of ingredients and products from which to choose. How will you make those choices? Can you recognize ingredients for what they really are? And will they harm you or help you? In this book you will learn about everything from common skin problems such as Rosacea, psoriasis, teen acne, to detailed information on hundreds of cosmetic ingredients and their effects on your skin.”
