HOME HEALTH: AGING SKIN

Skin is the largest body organ. It is the protector, insulator and guardian of all other body parts. As we grow older and our lives change, so does our skin. In addition, skin is the first body part to show signs of aging. With aging we experience healthy age-related conditions such as wrinkles, age spots, and sagging. Unfortunately unhealthy changes such as cancer, can affect us as well. How we take care of our skin in our earlier years have a profound affect on our later years.

Top things we encourage you to do to help your skin stay strong, resilient and vibrant.

  • Stop Smoking. Cigarettes are harmful to your overall health and can cause skin cancer. The toxins in cigarette smoke damage collagen and elastin, which are key to keeping your skin firm and supple. Smoking is a sure fire way to damage your skin.

  • Drink Water. Because water is good for your overall health, it aids in skin maintenance. Hydration is vital for circulation and circulation is important for glowing skin. As they always say, "Eight glasses of water a day".

  • Get Proper Sleep. Sleep is a time of repairing for the skin. Collagen is known to rejuvenate your skins volume and night. Because blood flow is rampant at night, this is the best time to apply moisturizer.
