)-- Is a skin drought making you older?
We have all seen pictures of river and lake beds that have dried up due to a lack of rain and water supply to the area. The ground is a spider web pattern of cracks in the dry clay soil because lack of moisture makes the ground separate and the ruts become deeper and deeper as more water evaporates from the surface. Water is critical and vital for human existence, we can live 20 days without food but we can only live 4 days without water.
H2O plays an integral part in our human chemistry and anatomy and as a matter of fact about 70% of our body weight is water. A drought or an absence of water can wreak havoc on our earth and our human body devoid of moisture can create havoc on skin and complexion. Drinking an insufficient amount of water can bring about drought conditions for our skin and can be highly problematic in a myriad of ways. Foremost, dehydration can make you look older, think of the lake bed as a mega magnified close up of your face and the surface becoming more and more prone to these “ruts” or wrinkles, as our moisture level decreases.
From a cosmetic standpoint, dehydration can render many skin care products ineffective or at the very least insufficient. Products with peptide technology, like Skin 2 Skin™ Care’s Anti-Sagging Renewal Serum, when applied to the face goes into the layers of the skin and seeks out moisture to effectively produce results the product was intended to deliver. Without enough water, it will leave skin care products without the ability to be totally beneficial. Matrixyl 3000, a copper peptide at a 17% concentration in Skin 2 Skin’s Anti-Sagging Renewal Serum, constantly reminds the skin’s cells to replenish water for an optimal level of skin hydration. It also helps the cells recover more effectively from wound and cut damage and reduces blemishes due to acne and other skin conditions. The serum aids in strengthening the skin’s elasticity and gives the skin a firmer, more youthful appearance. All of this because of the foundation that good hydration set up is necessary for the skin care product to do its job effectively.
How well your skin care products work is really up to you. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day creates the optimum condition for your skin products to work effectively. Staying away from sugary soda and juice and keeping alcohol consumption to a minimum are all great habits to have to keep dehydration at bay. A perfect complement to a strict hydration routine is a skin care regimen using the Anti-Wrinkle Night Recovery by Skin 2 Skin™. The silky, ultra-hydrating skin cream is formulated with advanced peptide technology that includes 2% Dermaxyl and Eukarion 134. These peptides work by encouraging healthy cell renewal, repairing photodamaged and hyperpigmented skin and by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen production and plumping / hydrating the skin inside out. This product will do its part all while you peacefully slumber as long as you do your part while you are awake and keep that body fully hydrated.
A lot more goes into a person’s skin care product’s effectiveness than just drinking water. An effective outcome may also be dependent on a person’s diligence with sticking to the Skin 2 Skin™ Care’s regimen, your genetics, and limiting the amount of exposure to the harmful Sun that will cause photodamage which are your wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots and early signs of aging. For the most part, keeping your body hydrated is an easy task that everyone can do to start everything off the best way possible. No, dehydration will not make you older as implied by the article title, but it will make your skin look older than you need to look and it will cause you to throw good money down the drain for skin care products that you have purchased but can’t do their job sufficiently. So come on everyone, fill up that glass with water, throw a sliced cucumber, lemon or orange in there to spice it up if you don’t like plain water and let’s all toast to younger looking skin.
