ARTICLES ABOUT ANTI-AGING

 

 

 

Glutathione is a simple protein made of three amino acids, glutamine, cysteine and glycine.  It is the body’s most important antioxidant, and plays a major role in the health of every tissue and organ in the human body… Including you skin!

Why Glutathione is Important

Inside every cell in the body there is energy generating apparatus called mitochondria

Mitochondria convert the oxygen we breathe and the food we eat into chemical energy called ATP

 

They look like small flats of hanging skin and are more common than you imagine.

Although not dangerous or painful, skin tags, scientifically known as acrochordon or fibroepithelial polyps, are a source of discomfort. That is why so many people are eager to get rid of them as soon as they develop. Before learning how to remove skin tags safely and painlessly, here are just a few of the questions about skin tags and what they are all about that we are going to answer in this post:

 

What are Skin Tags?

 

Why write an entire article on the different types of eczemas?

After all, they’re just rashes that can’t be cured and tend to go away on their own, right? While the above may be true, it’s also true that eczema is an issue for 10-12% of U.S. children and approximately 3% of adults. The drop in percentage of people affected is explicable through the fact that most children born with eczema will outgrow it by age 10.

 

DMAE… Skin Tightening Cream?

For all those who are looking for a “quick fix” for skin tightening, DMAE sounds like a dream come true. It is marketed under the clever moniker “facelift-in-a-jar”, which conjures up images of a 50 plus year old woman (or man) looking in the mirror, opening a jar of cream that she slathers on her face and viola!… a 35 year old face is looking back at her from the mirror.

 

Every so often the airwaves fill with news about a new miracle substance that can cause skin tightening and make your skin young again, as if you magically had a neck lift or non-surgical face lift.  

Some of these substances are synthetic but most are compounds discovered from some sort of natural source, like a rare melon that is grown only in France or an even rarer orchid found only in a mysterious jungle somewhere. 

 

Oh how we love the way the sun feels, but oh how we hate what it does… sun damaged skin! 

Yes, the sun does make flowers bloom and trees grow, but flora was designed for that purpose.

Human skin on the other hand, was not designed to withstand the effects of prolonged exposure to the sun, especially lighter skin.

The Sun’s Damaging Effects on Skin

But if feels sooo good, how much damage can the sun really do?

 

Before we can dive into getting rid of wrinkles or sagging skin, we first need to understand the basic biology of collagen. 

However, I do understand that unless you are excited by science, you might find the next few paragraphs a tad boring… So to help keep your interest peaked, let me start by saying:

Sexy, gorgeous, lifted, toned, smooth, youthful skin – is all about collagen.

The Structure of Your Skin

Your skin is comprised of two main layers.

 

Is there a connection between diet and wrinkled skin? Are there anti-aging foods?

Ever heard the saying: “Don’t ask a question if you are not prepared to hear the answer”?

The other side of that coin is: “Don’t illicit a question if you don’t have the answer”.

For the past 20 years, many of our patients have asked about their diets, “is there such a thing as anti-aging foods?”. What should they eat or avoid eating to keep from getting wrinkles, acne or Rosacea

Now that you have read the article What is Collagen? The Basic Biology, you know that healthy collagen is key to youthful and healthy looking skin.  In fact, even for people who are un-educated about collagen, society is filled with advertisements about supplements, vitamins and products that improve skin by “boosting” your collagen. Do collagen supplements work?

Bottom line:  If you are interested in skin tightening, or a variety of other collagen boosting treatments such as; a non-surgical facelift, skin rejuvenation, laser face lift, neck lift, etc, you must understand that collagen plays a major factor in all of these treatments.
