Once childhood ends and we stop growing up, we start growing older. We notice many progressive changes in all parts of our body, how we feel, and it shows outwardly on our skin, too. But why does aging happen in the first place? There are several process happening at once...
The skin is a mirror of a person’s overall health. It also shows how well you are aging, or not, compared to others your age. Your nutrition habits can either slow or accelerate the aging process, and this article discusses the foods that are the worst offenders.
When it comes to how well your skin is aging, wrinkles are probably the #1 concern. Did you know that there are different types of wrinkles? Can you prevent or slow them from appearing? Learn what exactly causes your skin to form wrinkles and why.
How can you tell what decade of life someone is in? It's usually by their skin. Does it look unblemished, taught, and plump? Or is it becoming dry, wrinkled, droopy, and thin? In this post, I'll detail the most obvious signs of aging skin. You may be surprised to learn that the effects can be both aesthetic and medical in nature.
The aging process is inevitable and it usually starts in your mid-twenties. Some of the first ways you will notice aging is from the changes that appear in your skin. There are two main factors that cause your skin to age: they are the genetic factors (intrinsic) and the environmental factors (extrinsic). You can do a lot to influence both and remain youthful longer!!
We take special care of our skin because it's the most visible part of who we are physically. But, do you know exactly what your skin does for you? Why does collagen matter? And what happens within your skin that causes wrinkles and other changes?
Healthy, radiant skin must start on the inside. Like the body, your skin must be well hydrated and nourished to age gracefully. Eating a diverse diet of nutrient-dense, whole foods is the key to time defying skin. Here are my top 10 foods for natural beauty (in no particular order):
Sprouted flax meal is one of the main ingredients in this yummy cookie recipe. They taste like a decadent treat from the finest bakery, but are a much healthier, guilt-free option. N'oatmeal cookies for everyone!
Is your skin in need of a nice scrubbing? The purpose of a body scrub is to exfoliate the outermost layers of dead skin cells, revealing your softer, younger cells just below. But, there's no need to spend top-dollar at a spa when you can have the same treatment at home. It's something that can be romantic, too, if your sweetheart does the scrubbing!
Does your deodorant stink? The underarm sticks on store shelves are loaded with toxic chemicals that are designed to be absorbed into your skin. Today's the day your family switches to a much healthier alternative!
