Think it’s impossible to do something today that will make you look younger tomorrow? Think again as Dr. Oz shows you how to begin to look younger today with his anti-aging cure advice for 2014.
“It’s 2014 but you don’t have to look a day older this year because I have your whole-body anti-aging guide. I am going to reveal the simple things you can do today to look younger tomorrow,” says Dr. Oz as he tells viewers that you can put the brakes on aging with new science using natural cures that can help you avoid plastic surgery to look younger.
With Dr. Oz is special guest Sharon Giese, M.D., a cosmetic plastic surgeon to help explain to viewers that there are non-surgical secrets to looking younger. The following is summary of Dr. Oz’s and Dr. Giese’s latest anti-aging advice:
Anti-aging Natural Cure #1: Vitamin B3 for Wrinkles
In your foods, vitamin B3 is well-known as an energy booster, but recent research now shows that a relative of the nutritional vitamin B3 is a newer form of vitamin B3 called “niacinamide” that can be found in the latest skin care products that some refer to as “Botox in a bottle.” Dr. Oz tells viewers that the “niacinamide” form of vitamin B3 can plug fine lines and help eliminate wrinkles, and that it works by repairing skin cells through increasing capillary dilation and improving blood flow.
“B3 is a triple threat for aging skin—it boosts three kinds of proteins,” says Dr. Oz as he tells viewers that together, the 3 proteins make skin look younger as follows: One of the proteins helps by plumping up the skin; a second protein referred to as a “hydration protein” helps by preventing skin dryness; while the third protein has a structural role that retrains the skin to undo existing wrinkles.
“A natural anti-inflammatory, vitamin B3 can keep your skin supple and smooth,” adds Dr. Oz.
“I just love the idea of vitamins for the skin…vitamin B3 in particular is great because it is absorbed through the skin,” says Dr. Giese. “It’s not harsh and it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Giese tells viewers when looking for a skin care product that contains vitamin B3, look for the word “niacinamide” on the label. To apply the proper dose, she recommends a nickel-size dollop of a vitamin B3-containing face cream applied gently over the entire face and neck twice a day. Because the skin cells renew every 3 weeks, she tells viewers that you can expect to see noticeable results in one month.
Anti-aging Natural Cure #2: Bearberry Extract for Age Spots
“It’s a natural compound found in the Bearberry plant. This all-natural skin brightener is gentle on your skin, but tough on pigment,” says Dr. Oz. “Science shows that this extract slows down the melanin producing enzyme—preventing and reversing the dark spots of aging.”
According to D. Giese, all women regardless of skin color or tone will get age spots due to exposure to the sun that causes free radicals in the skin to raise melanin pigments close to the skin’s surface. These pigments are made by melanocyte cells deeper in the skin from which the melanin protein migrates up and often clumps together resulting in the age-related tell-tale spotting that mars the skin’s appearance.
According to Dr. Oz, the Bearberry extract works by breaking up those clumps of pigment that have migrated to the skin’s surface and therefore is a true natural, anti-aging skin spot remover.
“With Bearberry, you melt away that melanin created by these melanocytes and so you don’t have those deep, dark pigmentations anymore,” says Dr. Oz.
