Anti-Aging Tips from Dr. Adrienne Denese

In a release sent to BeansTalk, Dr. Adrienne Denese offers up post summer maintenance and has product (hers) suggestions, too. (BeansTalk note: We have not sampled any Dr. Denese's products ourselves, and this is a courtesy post as we trust the company's rep.)

It is important to get rid of dead skin cells; they are what make your skin look dead and old. They have a rough texture so they block out skin’s natural radiance and that natural glow
If you self tan, you need a freshly exfoliated canvas. Otherwise the self tan will come out to be blotchy. This applies for face and body alike.
Many of us use minimal make up in the summer so we can’t hide dull, sallow, tired looking skin anymore.

Product Suggestion: Dr. Denese Advanced Firming Facial Pads, www.DrDenese.com, $35

In the summer it is very important to protect the skin from dehydration which kills skin cells.
Air conditioning is one of your skin’s worst enemies. It takes out the humidity in the hair and dries your skin.
You must protect your skin from moisture loss which damages skin by moisturizing once a day.

Product Suggestion: Dr. Denese HydroShield Ultra Moisturizing Face Serum, www.DrDenese.com, $49 (15ml)

Few of us realize that every real sun tan we get during the summer will translate into several actual permanent lines on our face.
Try a non streak self-tanner.
Some self tanners are so advanced and so different from all other self tanners on the market that it truly gives you the look of an actual tan.

Product Suggestion: Dr. Denese Glow Younger Self Tanner, www.DrDenese.com, $32

All dermatologists would agree that the single worst enemy of your skin is the Sun. Nearly everything that you do not like about your skin: lines, wrinkles, age spots, enlarged pores, loss of firmness, red capillaries on your nose and cheek, loss of elasticity, all has to do with cumulative sun exposure.
Daily SPF 30 broad spectrum protection is imperative, even if it rains.
Product Suggestion: Dr. Denese SPF 30 Defense Day Cream, www.DrDenese.com, $34 (1.5 oz.)

FYI: The Hungarian Dr. Denese started making beauty products when she was nine-years-old. She says, "Since then I earned my Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Neuropsychology in Budapest, Hungary; I won a Research Fellowship at Harvard Medical School; and I received an M.D. at Cornell University Medical College." She adds, "I'm not only a medical doctor who specializes in anti-aging, but I'm one of the very few women doctors and, perhaps, the only female scientist in this field.

Through my training and medical practice, I have developed a vast body of knowledge about what your skin requires to look young and healthy and how to achieve it. My techniques have become known as "The Denese Difference". Not only do I use the most advanced active ingredients that have been clinically proven to work, I use far higher concentrations of them. Also important is that the active ingredients in each product are compatible with each other and that each product is designed to do only what it is intended for."

Her line includes "Beauty with Benefits" which may best described as a kind of "healthy makeup" (our verbiage, not theirs) and BeansTalk is intrigued.
