RADLA was created to address the increasing importance and medical social responsibility of dermatology in Latin America. During the 37th annual conference, skin care experts convened to explore various topics including the impact of external environmental agents on skin health and how antioxidants can help reduce the damaging effects of pollution.
The Mary Kay-sponsored symposium, “Pollution and Skin Health,” was moderated by Dr. Lucy Gildea, Mary Kay’s chief scientific officer. The event featured a panel of three dermatologists: Dr. Doris Hexsel, MD, dermatologist and principal Investigator for Hexsel Dermatologic Clinics and Brazilian Center for Studies in Dermatology in Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre, Brazil; Dr. Flavia Ravelli, MD at Flavia Ravelli Dermatology in Sao Paulo, Brazil; and Dr. Juliana Catucci Boza, MD and PhD, consultant clinical and aesthetic dermatologist in Porto Alegre and Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
As part of the symposium, Mary Kay presented findings on an antioxidant complex that can possibly help delay the premature signs of aging related to the damaging effects of diesel exhaust particles (DEP). The technology, found in the Mary Kay TimeWise Miracle Set 3D skin care line, is said to provide a powerful free-radical fighting regimen with an exclusive, patent-pending, three-dimensional approach to skin aging.
