''Skin Survivor" with Dr Vicki

Casting has commenced for the next season of Australian Survivor.  It got me thinking how now it seems we, especially Australians, are inadvertently playing a game of “Skin Survivor” every day of our lives.  We know that looking after our skin from as early on as possible is becoming increasingly important, not only so we look good in our older years but so our skin remains as healthy as it can be to carry us through.  I thought about what 5 items “Skin Survivor” castaways should pack to get them through the harsh conditions that life throws at them. 

If it were me, it would be:

  • Rationale immunologist serum

  • Rationale photodynamic light activated day cream SPF 15

  • Rationale B3-T Superfluid Sunscreen SPF50+

  • Rationale Immunologist Mask

  • Nicotinamide supplement tablets

You see, these products all contain Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) which is the skin equivalent of a big jar of cookies and more useful than 10 hidden immunity idols.  Rationale have been adding B3 to their products for years and have been well ahead of the “Skin Survivor” game. 

So what’s so special about B3 you ask?  B3 yields the same power as a Superidol and yields its magic in the following ways:

  • reduces the impact of UV radiation on immunity which helps skin repair itself after damage from the sun

  • reduces problematic pigmentation by stopping pigment reaching the surface of the skin

  • reduces skin redness, sensitivity and irritation

  • enhances skin barrier function

  • improves hydration and regulates sebum production

  • reduces the occurrence of non-melanoma skin cancers and sun spots

B3 has a place in everyone’s skin regime and by working in the ways outlined above, can help with many common skin conditions including rosacea, acne, sensitive skin, pigmentation, and non-melanoma skin cancers and sun spots.  It’s never too late to start, and doesn’t matter if you are in your 20’s, 80’s or somewhere in between, B3 can improve your skin in many ways and should be considered as part of routine skin care.  B3 is the ultimate secret to getting the most out of your skin and will definitely assist in your skin Survivor game to outwit, outplay and outlast!
