Edmonton, Alberta (PRBuzz.com) April 18, 2012 -- No matter the season, sun protection should be a year-round concern. However, it is easy to forget to apply sunscreen regularly and properly, and it is hard to know if it is working as required, or if it has been rubbed off or washed away. As a cosmetic dermatologist, and skin cancer expert, Dr Barry Lycka very frequently sees the effects of sun damaged skin. And as the brighter, stronger sun returns to the northern hemisphere, and spring progresses, in his video this week, Dr Lycka introduces a new product that acts as a 'sunscreen in a pill'.
The product is 'Advance Skin Brightening Formula', and is one of the range of Glisodin Skin Nutrients, nutri cosmetic supplements formulated around the powerful natural ingredient, superoxide dismutase or SOD. This is an antioxidant that fights toxins and cellular damage from free radicals induced by the UV rays. Other natural ingredients are also used:
• Borage seed oil which helps to sooth and reduce the irritation of sun damaged skin
• tomato rich in vitamin C and lycopene which protects the skin and suppresses inflammation
• citrus to help block the enzyme that causes hyperpigmentation - in other words, freckles and age spots.
In this video Dr Lycka explains the science and ingredients behind this new product. He reviews how it fights the effects of sun damage to skin and the other benefits skin receives from its use. As the medical advisor to the Phoenix Renewal Centre Medi-Spa in Edmonton, Dr Lycka has introduced the Glisodin range to the spa. A key aspect to note is that these products are only available from medical practitioners, and it is they who select the formulation most appropriate to a specific problem, including protection and repair from sun damage.
As one of North America's foremost authorities on cosmetic surgery Dr Lycka seeks to provide unbiased information to help members of the public to understand the real issues in cosmetic surgery and cosmetic procedures, and not to be misled or frightened by incorrect information.
This video is the latest in a weekly series shown on YourCosmeticDoctor.tv where Dr Lycka not only provides cosmetic surgery information and advice based upon his experience, but where he also reviews the latest products to help protect, care for and enhance the skin.
