Harper’s Bazaar Arabia features Dr. Maryam Zamani’s three-step philosophy to skincare, especially to curb the damage done during summer.
Cleansing & exfoliating is the first step to ensure clean pores, removal of dead skin, and product penetration. I recommend MZ Skin Cleanse & Clarify which is a Dual Action AHA Cleanser & Mask.
Once the skin is clean, we need to nourish the skin with antioxidants, retinols, and other key ingredients like Vitamin C. Vitamin C protects our skin from UV ray damage and encourages collagen synthesis. Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid are other key ingredients that can be added to your skincare regime. I recommend MZ Skin Brighten & Perfect 10% Vitamin C Corrective Serum to activate collagen production.
Exposing your skin to sun without protection counteracts all the nourishment you provide your skin with. Regardless of season- SPF is a must, as it prevents accelerated ageing and decreases risk of skin cancers. I recommend @laprairie Anti-Aging Day Cream SPF30.
