I am delighted to see Good Housekeeping featuring the next generation of skin doctors. I am particularly pleased to see the very talented Dr Philippa Lowe included, who just happens to be my daughter!
If you are keen on finding out how to look younger for longer, make sure you get a copy of February’s Good Housekeeping, where fellow skin specialists reveal their stay-young secrets. I will share with you some of Philippa’s top tips.
“It’s a myth that…. ….drinking excess water will hydrate your skin. Yes your body needs water, but if your skin is dry, you need moisturiser. Foods containing essential fatty acids- such as oily fish- help, too. You could mix a spoonful of omega-3-rich ground flaxseed into a smoothie.”
“Supplements? There’s more and more evidence that vitamin D can improve your skin, as well as helping to protect you from a variety of diseases. I take 1,000 IU daily of vitamin D3.”
Growing up in California Philippa is very conscientious about daily sunscreen application; it seems the apple doesn’t fall very far away from the tree! Like me, she recommends using the Dr Nick Lowe Super Charged SPF15 Day Cream daily. Remember, broad-spectrum sunscreen each day can help keep ageing away.
