Keeping skin moist goes a long way in keeping your skin dewy and youthful. But if you are eating well and taking great care of your skin, you can still feel unhappy about the tone of your skin.
That’s when you have “Redundant Skin”. This sagging of the skin becomes visible anytime after our fortieth birthday. So how can we delay this “scary” sight coming to our mirrors?
To find the cause we have to go deeper than the epidermis and the dermis. It is a combination of the thinning of the subcutaneous skin layer and of bone loss.
As we pass our fortieth birthday we start to notice the thinning of our skin. This occurs as our skin is less resilient as the subcutaneous layers thin. Subcutaneous Layer is maintained by Human Growth Hormone (HGH). Sleep is the best way to keep or increase HGH levels. External HGH supplementation is not recommended because available sources have been found unsafe.
At about the same time we can start to see the shrinking of our wrist bone. Most of us don’t take much notice – after we have bought into the belief that “thinner is better”. But we do take notice when we see the “Redundant skin” on our faces cause by the same bone loss. From a young age, we all know to get enough calcium to prevent osteoporosis so why the visible bone loss? We need liquid Vitamin D supplementation to ensure the conversion of Calcium for bone + skin health.
So the prevention of skin aging begins in our youth include the following;
1. Protect skin from sun, cold and dryness
2. Eat to balance health
3. Sleep adequately
4. Take liquid Vitamin D
To remedy skin aging
1. Use a natural serum to plump up skin cells
2. Use a good natural moisturizer to slow down moisture loss
3. Take a maximum dose of liquid Vitamin D
4. If your sleep habit is short or broken, incorporate suitable remedies from napping to sleeping in.
5. Stop believing “thin is better” and eat you to balance your Ayurvedic type, your lifestyle and the weather
6. IPL and Microdermabrasion treatment to smooth and tighten skin
7. If you are still unhappy a face lift can be the only solution for extreme redundant skin.
