As a practicing dermatologist, Dr. Loretta has performed tens of thousands of total body exams under her belt. From the very beginning, she was struck by the remarkable difference between skin that’s exposed (face, neck, chest, and hands) and unexposed skin that’s covered by clothing (stomach, lower back, upper thighs, etc.).
Exposed skin shows more signs of premature aging, like discoloration, sagging, texture, and wrinkles. Unexposed skin typically looks younger and healthier.
Try comparing the skin on various parts of your arm, for example. The underside, which stays close to your body, will be soft and supple. The more exposed skin on the outside tends to be rougher with reddened, freckled, or discolored patches.
At the time, conventional dermatology attributed these kinds of differences to UV-related sun damage, but Dr. Loretta suspected there was more to the story — and she was right.
What’s actually aging us?
Dr. Loretta dedicated decades of research and hands-on experience in search of a better explanation. In the end, she found four external factors that are responsible for 85% of visible skin aging:
Pollution - Indoors or outdoors, city or suburbs, pollutants are everywhere.
Light - Sunlight and digitally-emitted screen light included.
Climate - Temperature and humidity changes put stress on your skin.
Irritants - Skin-irritating ingredients tend to hide in everyday products.
It’s time to do more for our skin.
Through Dr. Loretta’s hard work, Skin Unexposed® emerged as a newer and smarter approach to anti-aging. Today's dermatological research shows us that traditional anti-aging skincare just isn’t enough — the secret to youthful, healthy-looking skin is keeping it “unexposed” to all four factors proven to cause aging changes.
