Oxygen and Our Skin

Oxygen is our very own fountain of youth. It is vital for cell renewal, fighting off damaging free radicals and carrying away toxins.

Without oxygen, you lose vitamin C, which keeps skin soft and glowing. Skin starts to thin, collagen and elastin are damaged.

This creates premature sagging and wrinkles. Vertical lines form around the mouth and healing is much slower. Aging is quicker.

This is why smoking not only causes damage to your respiratory system, it also brings great harm to your skin.

It can take up to 10 years for the damage to appear so you may not see the signs of aging yet. But do what you must to quit this dreadful life threatening habit.

That old saying that laughter is the best medicine is true! Your emotions play a large role in how you look and how others see you.

Of all the emotions that rip our youth to shreds, stress ranks at the very top.

Why? Stress stimulates the hormone cortisol. When you’re stressed it taxes every organ in your body.

– Blood vessels become more fragile
– Skin cells don’t form as quickly
– Cell turnover eventually slows to half!

Stress also causes you to eat differently. Do you drink less water? Crave chocolate or potato chips all the time?

Anger can also affect how quickly your skin rejuvenates and heals. Again, that pesky hormone, cortisol, takes center stage.

It limits the production of collagen, that great anti-ager, and you certainly don’t want that!

None of us can hide out from life. That’s why self-care is so crucial. Get a facial, a massage, ride a bike, whatever it is that calms and soothes you.

It will subtract years from your face and add years to your life!
