In response to the many inquiries from our friends in the medical profession, the scientific community, the news media and consumer advocate groups, we at Edimi™ are proud, as part of an on-going public educational program, to disseminate the following important information.
Q: What causes the most damage to the Skin?
A: Don't be fooled by the "healthy" look of tan. The UV rays of the sun cause more problems than everything else combined. Sun Damage is the major cause of wrinkles, drastically increases the aging process, chokes off the blood and oxygen supply to the Skin, and breaks down the natural Skin defense mechanism.
Q: Is there any hope for sun-damaged Skin?
A: Up until recently, if you contracted sunburn even once in your life, at any age, you were sun-damaged for the rest of your life. There are currently some well-documented, experimental successes of sun-damage reversal or remission. The two most popular are a medical clinic in Germany, and the Skin research facility at Edimi Institute for Skin Sciences in Naples, Florida.
Q: Is there any defense against "looking older"?
A: To date, no one has found the "Fountain of Youth". However, modern day science and technology are phenomenal. We are actually able to slow down the aging process through proper nutrition, exercise, common sense (like staying out of the sun) and, in the case of the Skin, a daily Skin care regimen. There are many good Skin care regimens available, but the best is one that takes into account Ph balance, penetration/absorption, proper cleansing, meaningful hydration and client education.
Q: What causes pimples, and what can I do about them?
A: Teenage acne, adult acne and various forms of dermatitis are common Skin problems. The most common causes may be one or a combination of the following: diet, hormones, stress/tension, medication side effects, environmental pollution, poor Skin care, etc. Best suggestions would be a topical cleanser specially formulated to clean-up the build-up of sebum, bacteria and infection. This should be followed by a topical cream or ointment designed for continuous drawing out and drying effects. Worst cases should have regular treatments performed by a specialist.
