From daily skincare regimes (including proper moisturization and cleansing) to in-office treatments (such as injectables and laser peels), featured here are must-read anti-aging skincare tips from Dermatologist and Skin Expert, Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi.

Anti-Aging Skincare Tips
Moisturize every night and use a humidifier in the bedroom to keep skin supple and soft.
For women in their 30s, now is the time to step-up your skin care routine with a good antioxidant serum under your moisturizer with sunscreen or makeup in the morning, and add a retinol at night to stimulate collagen production.
In the 40’s and 50’s, continue with good skin care, and now also add steps to turn skin cells over more quickly because this process slows as we age. Consider glycolic peel pads 2-3 times a week to keep the skin well-exfoliated. This is also a good time to talk to your dermatologist about an anti-aging strategy using peels, lasers and injectables.
When started early and conservatively, the aging process can be slowed with beautiful and natural looking results. No one should look “done” anymore.
With today’s products, treatments and laser technology, women can look as good as they feel for decades!
