Hi Fowzi, thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with my response but I have just returned from my London practice.

As we age our skin needs change due to a number of factors. The loss of collagen and elastin accelerates, sun damage begins to be noticeable and the hydration of the skin drops dramatically due to a reduction in a number of important hydrating molecules.

To correct these changes one should consider alphahydroxy acids (in particular glycolic acid) and polyhydroxy acids. As such my recommendation is to use a good SPF (50 or higher) that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide and NeoStrata’s Bionic Face Cream and Ultra Smoothing Cream.
