The truth is, fourteen years later I actually have better skin, without ANY medical or surgical procedures. Don't underestimate the power of skin nutrition! Here's some valuable information on sun spots and how to get rid of them naturally.
The main causes of wrinkles and aging skin:
#1 Decreased oil production in skin:
As we age, the skin begins to be more dense, dry and less elastic. As the skin begins to lower its natural oil production, your skin can get dryer and less plump. Dryer, older skin leads to what are called “sticky cells” which are skin cells that get stuck together and are not as flexible or hydrated as they were during youth. This is why an oil based moisturizer is the most important skin care product you will ever use.
#2 Ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause the skin to wrinkle.
UV exposure speeds up the aging process of the body. Exposure to UV rays breaks down the connective tissue of the skin, collagen, and elastin fibers which are found in the deeper layers of the skin. Without these fibers and collagen, the skin begins to lose flexibility and strength. As a result, the skin begins to wrinkle and sag prematurely.
#3 Toxins in your skincare and environment
It is difficult to avoid many of the environmental toxins that are affecting our skin and health. Preservatives, harmful skincare ingredients like sodium benzoate and oxybenzone, air pollution, toxic molds, toxic building materials in your home- these pollutants age us from the inside out. However, if you can eat a healthy organic whole foods diet as well as choose nontoxic products you for home and skin, you'll help your body to process and eliminate the toxins that weigh your immune system down.
