Dr. Torgerson’s Tips For Smart Skin Care
This article is published by the renowned beauty and fashion magazine, ELLE Canada
The use of advanced skincare is something that is attractive to many men and women who enjoy the use of new methods of technology, skincare, or lifestyle choices as anti-aging remedies for all age groups. The article covers preventative measures that people can take to reduce and prevent the signs of aging in their skin. The points of discussion are as follows.
The use of advanced skincare is something that is attractive to many men and women
Sunscreen is the single most effective way to prevent the signs of aging in the face and body with persistent everyday use. Sunscreen prevents the absorption of harmful UVA and UB rays from penetrating into the skin. Sunscreen can come in cream form that is applied topically or in a form of makeup. Dr. Torgerson’s favourite sunscreen that is safe and effective for every purpose is ColoreScience’s Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen with SPF 50. This is an amazing product that provides makeup coverage with a mineral-based sunscreen that can be worn alone or over makeup.
Exercise is a no-brainer for anyone who understands the substantial benefits of regular physical activity. Exercise increases heart rate and blood flow, supplying increased oxygen and blood to the structures within our bodies. Exercise – whether cardiovascular, weightlifting, or sports – can improve more than just the skin. It provides total anti-aging advantages for a healthy, well-maintained body.
Microdermabrasion gently resurfaces the superficial layers of the skin. Dr. Torgerson recommends SilkPeel Microdermabrasion facials for his patients who want to receive the benefits of micro skin-resurfacing facials along with the added benefits of vitamins infused into the skin immediately after the treatments. SilkPeels are non-invasive, require no downtime, and can be repeated every 2 weeks.

Skin Care Based on Skin Type
Dr. Torgerson recommends a medical-grade skincare regime such as Teoxane’s Cosmeceutical Skin Care line or Alyria’s Skin Optimizing System that contains ingredients that have been formulated to fight the signs of aging for a variety of skin concerns for different skin types. People generally fall into 4 categories of skin care:
- Normal/combination skin – The skin is oilier in the T zone area.
- Acne-prone skin/sensitive skin – These people are more prone to oily skin and have frequent breakouts, which can be managed with oil-free products that draw out impurities from the skin.
- Dry skin – People with dry skin require increased amounts of moisture to the skin. Dry skin can become worse during winter.
- Mature skin – Mature skin has different qualities than younger skin or other skin types. Mature skin usually requires advanced ingredients that help reverse the signs of aging in the skin.
AHA and Vitamin C
Glycolic acid is the alpha-hydroxy acid of choice for most advanced skincare products. Dr. Torgerson highly recommends Alyria Skin Optimizing System’s wide range of products that are formulated with AHA and other essential ingredients like vitamin C and retinol. You can see the extensive collection of Alyria Skin Optimizing skin care products on Dr. Torgerson’s webstore.
