DUBAI: Only a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle could slow the effects of the ageing process. Junk food and excessive exposure to sunlight are some of the major reasons why skin deteriorates, especially on the face.
This was stated by Sunny Shaper, an international personal care expert with 30 years of experience in the beauty and personal care industry, while talking to The Gulf Today on Sunday. The visiting beauty expert from Malaysia was in Dubai to demonstrate a new range of skincare products during an interactive workshop.
The workshop was conducted by QNET exclusive to introduce its latest Physio Radiance beauty range, which consists of a complete skin care collection and a facial toning device.
The private launch was fun, relaxing and interactive, and was performed in the presence of beauty editors and bloggers at the Nassima Tower in Dubai.
“There are three major factors that speed up the ageing process: genetic, which we inherit from our parents; external, which is related to long sun exposure; and third, our eating habits — especially junk food, and a large number of food items include different types of chemicals which result in premature ageing,” he said.
The expert pointed out that the new beauty product range they are introducing — besides there already being a large selection available in the local market – only affects the skin externally.
“The best way to protect our skin and look healthy and radiant is to adopt a healthy lifestyle, especially eating fresh produce and having proper vegetables, fruits and proper nutrition. In the meantime, quitting smoking and other such unhealthy habits are helpful,” he suggests.
Sharing the renowned dermatologist’s remarks, he pointed that Dr Irene Lee is a registered dermatologist and internal medicine specialist in the National Specialist Registry, Malaysia. Proper skin care translates to better health: “Dry skin is prone to skin diseases, as a skin disease opens skin barriers, letting various types of bacteria in. When we have a skin disease, it affects the quality of our lives,” she said.
He pointed that the Physio Radiance is designed for all – male or female, young or mature, whether Asian, Caucasian, or African and possessing normal, oily or dry skin. Despite physical differences, we all share the same physiological functions. Our cells are identical and need the same care. “Through extensive research, Physio Radiance is distinguished by its unique formulation – an exclusive combination of ingredients to activate your skin cells to work naturally at their best, assisting in restoring your skin’s youthfulness and radiance,” he added.
