Why does our skin age?

Your skin probably does not look the same as 10-15 years ago (if it does, please share your secret). Both your genes and external factors, like sun exposure, pollution, sleep, stress, affect how your age. With age, skin becomes thinner, drier and more fragile. As of yet, no one has found an answer to stopping the natural aging process. Keep reading about what daily choices you can make to have better control over your aging skin.

PREVENTION is the key to minimize aging. A little bit of sunshine goes a long way. However, soaking up too much is incredibly bad for our skin.
UV rays break down collagen and elastin, therefore skin gets thinner and less elastic. Eventually, it may cause dark spots and development of skin cancer. Daily SPF 30+ (at least) and limited UV exposure is critical 365 days a year. MyChelle Sun Shield Liquid Tint SPF 50 in Nude is a softly tinted, 100% mineral sun screen for maximum UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection.

COLLAGEN, ELASTIN AND HYALURONIC ACID are depleting with age. We all experience some natural loss of elasticity and flexibility in our skin. As a result skin gets thinner and stops snapping back as easily. Collagen supplements help provide specific amino acids necessary for replenishing the body’s collagen supply. It can help minimize fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the elasticity of your skin. MyChelle Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum delivers an optimal dose of hydration to help maintain skin’s healthy suppleness. Finally,
Mill Creek Elastin Cream helps restore skin elasticity.

MEDITATION is a simple, fast way to reduce stress. Stress causes a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. Have you ever noticed that you break out more when you’re stressed? This is because stress causes your body to make hormones like cortisol, which tells glands in your skin to make more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems. Since stress is a part of life, what matters is how you handle it. Anyone can practice meditation. It’s simple and inexpensive, and it doesn’t require any special equipment. Spending even a few minutes in meditation can restore your calm and inner peace. If you are new to it, search for guided meditation on Youtube.
