The markets are flooded with thousands of skin care products claiming to be the next great fountain of youth. Lotions and options with exotic ingredients and savvy packaging are constantly fighting for our attention. As tempting as they all are, your skincare purchase should be science based.
1. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen!!
More than 90% of the visible changes commonly attributed to skin aging are caused by the sun. People who use sunscreen daily show 24% less skin aging then those who do not use daily sunscreen.
I am continually shocked when my new clients tell me they don’t use sunscreen. It’s not fancy, it’s not expensive yet it works!
Get yourself a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 45+ and use it daily. You can thank me later:) My current sunscreen of choice is Intellishade by Revision. It has an SPF of 45 yet feels and smells like a lovely tinted moisturizer.
Retinol or Vitamin A is the most powerful and well researched anti-aging ingredient on the market. It restores normal cell turnover and builds collagen. The end result is a more even complexion, restoration of dull dehydrated skin, diminished acne breakouts, wrinkle reduction and gorgeous skin.
The key to using retinol is to slowly build up to an optimal percentage of 0.5-1.0%. (Equivalent to .05-0.1 % Retin-A) Initial flaking and dryness are normal. Just stay hydrated and go slowly. Your skin will eventually build up a tolerance.
I love the retinols from Cosmedix . They are encapsulated to minimize irritation and range from .01-.1%

Be hungry for life. Be hungry for the truth. Be hungry to track down your purpose and your destiny. Be hungry to give your gift to others. Be hungry for a better world. As you become more aware of your hunger for life, your hunger for food finds its proper and natural place. You stop fearing your hunger because you’ve actually learned how to welcome it and honor it. When we reduce the larger meaning of hunger to the mere hunger for food, a problematic relationship with food is predictable. Hunger gives us energy. The desire to be fed with a full and complete life ignites a fire in us that can light up the world

Temple Emanu-El, a Guastavino masterpiece on the Upper East Side
Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile is a major exhibition exploring the innovations the Guastavino Fireproof Construction Company (1889-1962) brought to the science and art of building. It was originally organized by MIT’s John Ochsendorf, who is a MacArthur Fellow; it is substantially expanded here to include some 20 key Guastavino spaces in the five boroughs.
