What Does Aging Do to Your Skin?
As you age, your skin’s supply of collagen is depleted, and your skin becomes thinner and less elastic. These changes lead to older-looking skin, with fine lines and wrinkles, and skin that sags, looks dull, or feels coarse. Sun and wind damage, smoking, and a diet low in nutrients also lead to skin aging.
It’s impossible to control all of the things that make your skin look older, but you can protect your skin in a few ways:
- Wear a good sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and reapply every 2 hours.
- Eat well, with the vitamins and nutrients your body needs.
- Engage in 30 minutes of daily exercise.
- Avoid smoking
The effects of aging are still hard to control. This is what SkinMedica is designed to address.

How Do I Use SkinMedica?
SkinMedica is used just like any other skincare routine. There are products in the line that are intended for daily or to be used twice daily. Others need to be used less frequently. The length of time that you spend on your skincare routine will depend on how many SkinMedica products you choose to use and how often you use them.
You can choose from a full range of skincare products, mixing and matching to create the perfect regimen for your personal needs.
Is SkinMedica Safe?
SkinMedica products are safe to use as directed. Because of to the special nature of the ingredients in these products, if you have a medical condition, you should see your doctor before using the SkinMedica range.
Are you pregnant or nursing? SkinMedica products haven’t been tested for safety on these women, so if you are pregnant or nursing and are interested in using the line of products, consult with your doctor first.
