VOL. 4, FEB 2001: Anti Aging Skin Care


Anti Aging Skin Care

It should come as no surprise in our enlightened age that exposure to Ultraviolet rays from the sun (or a tanning bed) can be blamed for up to 90% of premature aging signs, which include not only wrinkles but also uneven skin pigmentation and skin cancer. UV rays and free radicals destroy Collagen (the substance that makes skin supple) and elastin (which makes skin taut and resilient). Smoking, over-consumption of alcohol and exposure to environmental toxins makes the situation even worse by depriving the skin of oxygen and suppressing the immune system. As a result, the skin literally collapses in on itself, like a tent with no supports, displaying the telltale signs of what we now call premature aging.

Smoking can add over 20 years to your appearance!
Not only does smoking radically increase your chances of many chronic diseases, it also wreaks havoc with your skin! Recent studies indicate that smoking can add over 20 years to your appearance, dramatically accelerating the onset of premature aging and skin thinning. Lung cancer, heart disease and prematurely aging skin, all result from smoking, not to mention de-sensitized taste buds. Who said this habit was glamorous?
