What I most recently realized is that I have way more to say than blogging once a week. So for the next little while I am going to write a bit more often. Please comment if you think it is too much. The next few sessions will be focused on your skin. Does your skin look as young as you feel? I know I often look in the mirror and question who that is staring back at me. Anyone who has had a break out either before, during or after a stressful time will believe that Skin Sin #1 is, wait for it....STRESS. It is biologically the biggest cause of cellular break down of skin. Stress releases cortisol and adrenaline into your cells. These two hormones were valuable when we were trying to outrun a T-Rex, not so much in today's world. Although I have worked for people who resembled these primitive beings. If these hormones remain in your system they result in free radical damage that ultimately cause wrinkles and sagging. Your cells look like water balloons and the free radicals poke holes in your balloons. As a result your cells start to leak water, causing dehydration. Cellular dehydration and free radical damage may be the two main causes of aging skin. The great thing is you can minimize the damage by using great products such as Arbonne's Multi-Vitamin for Women which has a high ORAC value. ORAC value is the ability of a product to rid the body of free radicals. In addition, participating in an activity that promotes relaxation will help keep stress hormones in check. Nia is the perfect form of movement as it encourages relaxation while still moving. Massage of any type, including Ayurvedic massage will take years off your skin if done on a regular basis. And who doesn't want to look half your age!!! Mediation also serves to release stress. Implement some or all of these solutions and you will not only look younger but feel younger as well. Stay tuned for Skin Sin #2.
