Your Amazing Skin

Did you know?

  • We lose 1% of collagen per year after the age of 29.
  • Collagen is broken down daily by the sun and free-radical damage.
  • Young skin sheds cells about every 30 days and older skin sheds every 60 days.
  • Moisturizers attract water molecules plumping up dehydrated skin and making wrinkles less noticeable.
  • The needs of your skin, including hydration and moisturizing, will change from time to time and as you age.
  • Skincare products and cosmetics don’t last forever. Check expiration dates and keep out of sunlight.
  • Despite popular belief, dry skin does not cause wrinkles, though it can make all lines and wrinkles appear worse.
  • Moisturizers are only a temporary fix. Gravity, aging, and sun exposure will do their damage anyway.
  • Exfoliating with pits and crushed seeds is not the answer. If the substance is too rough it will create micro-tears in your skin.
  • How you sleep affects your age. Sleeping on your back is the best way to minimize wrinkling on your face and neck.
  • New research suggests that we accumulate 10% of sun damage with each passing decade.
  • The sun does penetrate window glass, so keep sunscreen handy all year round. Make reapplying your sunscreen a ritual.
  • Taking two aspirin immediately after sun exposure will help prevent a sunburn from developing.
  • Acne plagues the average sufferer for seven years and adult women often for 20 years or more.
  • Approximately 40% of people from the age of 20 to 60 suffer from adult blemishes, breakouts, and acne.
  • A pimple is weeks in the making; the pimple you see today cannot be a direct result of the chocolate you ate yesterday.
  • If you have facial redness, rosacea, or broken capillaries, saunas, steam baths, coffee, wind, and alcohol will only irritate the skin further.
