ART Skin Care Basics

Did you know Young Living offers an amazing product line up for your skin care needs? The skin is our largest organ and taking care of it is important. The skin is a big player in detoxification of our body. The skin ages in two ways due to environmental factors and due to biological aging. A comprehensive skin care regimen addresses both factors. Prevention and protection are the keys to keeping your youthful appearance.

The American Academy of Dermatology tells us that the slowing down of elastin and collagen production occur between 20 and 80 years of age with a decrease of 65%. Thickness of the skin decreases by 6% every 10 years.

Intrinsic aging which are hereditary factors account for 10% of the visible signs of aging. Darker and thicker skin types show less aging signs. Actinic (external factors) can be caused from smoking, excessive alcohol, improperly balanced nutrition and sun exposure. These external factors can be from free radicals which bring about visible pre-mature changes in the skin including: wrinkles, sagging, pigmentation spots, changes and lack of color. Proper skin care protection from the sun can help minimize these signs as 90% of them are from exposure.

The biological clock is always ticking and this ticking can show changes in your skin and complexion. Visible aging signs typically can begin around 25 years old. The natural regenerative process begins to slow down at this time. Cell regeneration and turnover is much slower. Protection is imperitive.
