A well-known American dermatologist presented his research yesterday in Bucharest. The "water principle" is the basis of the anti-aging treatment practiced and promoted by dermatologist Howard Murad, known as an authority on skin health.
Antioxidants, lecithin and other nutritional supplements help the skin maintain its elasticity and, thus, age harder, says the specialist, who visited Romania yesterday and explained yesterday at a press conference these theories.
Cigarettes and pollution spoil our skin
The skin is among the most "required" organs of the body because of its permanent exposure to harmful external factors: cigarette smoke, ultraviolet rays, pollution.


All of these factors cause the skin to age faster. "There are several types of aging: an inner one (a normal process, strongly marked by genetic inheritance), external aging (accelerated by the influence of the environment) and hormonal aging (it is related to the first type to which hormonal changes are added). In all three situations, the skin is directly affected, whether it's women, men or even children, "explains dermatologist Howard Murad.
The "water principle" of H. Murad's therapy supports hydration both from the inside, through the consumption of water (the eight glasses daily), nutrition rich in vegetables and fresh fruits, seasonally and externally, with the help of cosmetic products. The doctor has developed several such products based on alpha-hydroxides, vitamin C, pomegranate extract and artemia (an active marine ingredient).
Moreover, the appearance of acne, wrinkles or cellulite is the main cause of water loss in cells. The specialist also recommends other elements that effectively fight the free radicals responsible for aging: on the one hand, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents (which can be taken from both medicines and healthy foods), and on the other, supplements based on fatty acids and glucosamine (found in pharmacies). These help the body keep water in the cells.
