Most people may now line up Bruce Springsteen on Broadway on Netflix, for a rough celebration of the life and work of the musician, but we have to talk about the elephant in the room – the glow that Wrinkle-free elephant.
The guy looks amazing. It is especially noticeable in faulty HD close-ups that The Boss has made directly on his skin. He now looks just as good as he did when he was released in 1975 Born to Run . The same man who has changed the way we think the American flag and a pair of Levis 501s is changing the way we think. The 70-year-old can look.
The favorite son of New Jersey has big genes, but that can not be the whole story. Finally, he's off the Jersey Shore, where tanning is essentially a government-approved activity. We will not pretend to know exactly how he does it, but we dare to suggest that somewhere in this tour bus there is effective sunscreen and anti-aging serum. We talked to the New York dermatologist Adam Geyer to find out how easy it is to extend our Glory Days through skincare.
Sunscreen every day
Just because you are not in The Shore does not mean that the sun does not bombard your skin every day. "You need to wear sunscreen 365 days a year," says Dr. Geyer. "Use a broad-spectrum formula with a SPF of at least 30." It's been proven that sun damage is the leading cause of skin cancer, not to mention premature aging and other skin problems. Dr. Geyer also recommends men look for formulations that contain antioxidants, as found in the Anthelios line of LaRoche-Posay.
About These Antioxidants
Antioxidants are components that attack free radicals, tiny particles that attack skin cells, are attacked by UV rays, environmental pollutants and even the blue light from your phone screen. Using an antioxidant serum or moisturizer every morning can help protect your skin from anything thrown on it and reduce the signs of aging. Dr. Geyer recommends the use of new products designed specifically to shield against high-intensity pollution (blue light from your phone or TV).

Go For the Eyes
"Start using an eye cream early on," Dr. Geyer. "In the eyes, the men first show their age." He recommends products that are specially formulated for the eyes and use ingredients that focus on the issues in this area (puffiness, dark circles and fine lines) and do not come in your Skin eyes and irritate them. Use eye cream at least once a day, twice for additional credit.
"Use Retinol or Glycolic Acid at night to promote cell turnover and keep the skin fresh," says Dr. Geyer. The speed with which our skin cells renews slows down with age. Therefore, an exfoliant helps to get rid of dead skin cells. Retinol products will also contribute to cell turnover, but be careful when using them together. "It's either or," he says. "Those who use retinol do not necessarily need so much exfoliation. However, if you do not use it, it is important to use an exfoliating cleanser, mask or pad 2-3 times a week.

It is Inside That Counts
Geyer is what you put into your body just as important as what you put on it. "Taking an antioxidant or B vitamin can help ward off any signs of aging," he says. "A recent study has shown that taking 500 mg of niacinamide twice daily can have a significant impact on the onset of sun damage and precancerous lesions," he says, and may also support the aging process. "It is important, however, that you do not take a vitamin with niacin, as it will make many people blush." Another supplement that Dr. Geyer recommends Heliocare is a supplement with a fern extract that reduces the effect of UV rays on our skin cells and can reduce wrinkling.
"As we get older and our skin becomes dehydrated, our skin looks older," Dr. Geyer. "We have less water that binds our skin, it is more prone to decreased lipid production and may appear ashen and drier, giving the appearance of aging. It is important to apply a moisturizing moisturizer at night that nourishes the skin. "Not only can this diet bring dull skin back to life, but it can also build the skin's barrier to protect it against external influences such as pollution.

Doctor Knows Best
Get used to a dermatologist at least once a year. Not only can you monitor your skin for problems like skin cancer, you can also point to even more effective treatments like laser. "People judge our age not only by how many wrinkles we have, but also by the clarity of our skin tone," says Dr. Geyer. "Once-a-year IPL laser laser treatments [Intense Pulsed Light] can help reduce capillaries and brown spots and significantly affect the appearance of aging."
