Skin Care Tip

Does Food Matter For Your Skin?

Free radicals are released when foods are cooked in oil at high temperatures, which can cause cellular damage to the skin cells. Due to a mechanism known as cross-linking, free radical exposure accelerates the skin aging process. Cross-linking has an effect on DNA molecules and can cause skin elasticity to deteriorate quickly. Furthermore, too much salt can cause dehydration by drawing water from the skin. It's possible that this will make your skin more prone to wrinkles.

Processed meats such as hot dogs, pepperoni, bacon, and sausage can all be detrimental to the skin. These meats are heavy in salt, saturated fats, and sulfite, all of which can cause irritation while drying the skin, further weakening collagen. If you want to help your skin, simply replace processed meats with eggs or beans for a low-cost protein source.

Anti-Aging Tip

A low sugar diet can help you look younger!

Even little amounts of excess processed sugar in your diet can create dark circles, wrinkles, dry skin, and hasten the aging process. Sugar is present in nearly every food we consume, ranging from natural sugars found in fruits and vegetables to added sugars found in processed foods. A low sugar diet is great at slowing down the aging process. Collagen and elastin are two natural proteins found in our skin that help to keep it elastic and silky. When we consume sugar, our collagen molecules begin to cross-link, causing our skin to lose suppleness and stiffen, resulting in more wrinkles and an aged appearance.

Plastic Surgery Tip

Arm Lift Surgery is An Option

An arm lift is a cosmetic surgery technique that improves the appearance of your upper arms’ underside. Excess skin and fat are removed from between the armpit and the elbow during an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty. To get a more toned appearance, the remaining skin is relocated over the newly repositioned features. The skin on your upper arms changes as you get older, drooping and loosening.

Significant weight reduction might also cause more drooping on the undersides of your upper arms. Exercising the upper arm can build and improve muscular tone, but it won't help with extra skin that has lost its flexibility. If the undersides of your upper arms are sagging, you may want to consider an arm lift. An arm lift may also help you feel better about yourself.
