Spring is just around the corner, and that means that sweater weather will soon be behind us. But is your skin ready for the shorts, tank tops, and (gulp) the swimsuits of the season?
The fact is that no matter how you strive to take care of your body, your skin will tell every secret. You can hide your birth certificate. Fudge your age. Dress like a teenager. But your skin will tell the tale. That’s why it’s so important to keep your skin healthy, well-nourished, and well-nurtured.
Skin Health From the Inside Out
To be sure, the first signs of aging and ill health often manifest on the skin. Crepiness in the skin on the neck, chest, and hands is usually a dead giveaway of advancing age, even before the lines, wrinkles, or sagging appear on the face.
Although issues with skin’s appearance aren’t just about aging. They can also indicate a deeper health concern, including metabolic, immune, or cardiovascular disorders. They may even indicate the presence of certain forms of cancer, including cancers of the lung.
This is why it is so important to pay attention to what your skin is telling you and to be proactive in nurturing your skin health from the inside out.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle
Since your skin is, above all, a reflection of your overall health, nurturing your skin begins by cultivating wellness. The best way to start, of course, is by maintaining a healthy diet, hydrating daily, and ensuring you’re getting ample exercise and consistent, quality sleep.
In addition, it’s vital that you receive good medical care, with regular preventative screenings that include skin cancer screenings.
Collagen, Biotin, Botox, and Fillers
As important as it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, if you want to enjoy younger-looking skin, that’s only half the battle. The hard truth is that age takes its toll on the skin. Over time, the skin loses its ability to repair itself. The underlying cellular structures of the skin begin to break down, resulting in sagging, wrinkling, and a general loss of fullness.
This is perfectly normal, but it is not inevitable. Supplementation with collagen and biotin, for instance, can promote cell turnover and repair, decreasing dryness and dullness. These supplements have also been shown to help retain or even rebuild the underlying support structures, giving aging skin a fuller, smoother, and more supple appearance.
In addition to supplementation, injectable therapies, such as Botox and fillers, can be used to instantly add fullness and decrease the appearance of sagging and wrinkled skin. This can restore the skin’s youthful look and feel, without the need for surgery!
