It is said that age is just a state of mind, but looking youthful certainly takes more than a positive outlook. 

Taking care of your skin and yourself, will keep you looking and feeling young.
Taking care of your skin and yourself, will keep you looking and feeling young.
Aging skin is a part of life, to be sure, but there are many skin care tips that can help you to care for your self, and your skin, slowing this process and preserving the youthful firmness and glow that characterize beautiful, young skin.
1) Take Care of Your Skin
It may seem like the obvious answer, but having a good skincare routine can really help to fight the signs of aging. Cleansing and moisturizing the skin, as well as protecting it from the sun with sunscreen, can make a significant difference in the amount of wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots that appear as you age. All skin ages, so care for all of your skin, paying close attention to your hands, neck, eyes and lips, as these are the areas that begin to show signs of aging first.
2) Moisturize Me!
Nourishing the skin with moisture has a major effect on its condition, especially when it comes to aging. Dry skin is damaged skin, and damaged skin looks older. Choosing the right moisturizer may seem difficult, but going natural is always a safe solution. Oil moisturizers, such as virgin coconut oil, nourish the skin and add a layer of protection. In fact, virgin coconut oil has antibacterial properties as well, providing a layer of protection for the skin against bacteria that may cause breakouts or inflammation.
3) Take Your Vitamins ... And Wear Them, Too!
Antioxidants are one of the most important weapons in the arsenal doing battle with the signs of aging, fighting the negative effects of free radicals including environmental damage and UV rays. Free radicals are primarily responsible for wrinkles, age spots, lose of firmness and elasticity, even bags under the eyes.

Vitamin C is considered the most potent and powerful antioxidant, whether you eat it, drink it, or put it directly on to the skin. Boosting the immune system and stimulating collagen production, Vitamin C helps to improve exfoliation, decrease inflammation, and brighten the skin naturally.
4) Tea: The Fountain of Youth?
Another popular antioxidant is tea, specifically green or white tea. Drinking green tea, or preferably the less-processed white tea, gives your entire body a major antioxidant boost. Green and white teas contain EGCG, a powerful antioxidant that increases the rate of cell turnover, renewing the skin and improving its texture and overall health. You can also mix green tea powder into brewed white tea and make a topical mask, which is a great way to give your skin a delicious dose of wrinkle-fighting antioxidants.
5) Off With the Old, In With the Youthful
Exfoliation is one of the most important elements of a good skincare routine, refreshing the skin by removing dead and dull surface cells, allowing the fresh, more youthful layers to emerge. Exfoliated skin also absorbs moisturizers much better. A good exfoliating scrub need not be rough or too abrasive, as you don't wish to damage your skin. Natural exfoliants, including oatmeal, sugar, and finely-ground walnut shells can gently remove dead skin without being too abrasive. A homemade scrub of sugar and lemon juice adds the benefit of alpha-hydroxy acid, as well as Vitamin C, so you get a does of antioxidants as well.
6) Caring For Your Collagen Levels
Collagen is the protein in our skin that keeps it looking plump, firm and youthful. As aging progresses, however, the levels of collagen in the body decrease drastically, leading to tell-tale signs of age such as wrinkles and fine lines, as well as sagging skin. Preserving your collagen levels, as well as stimulating the production of collagen in the skin, can help to keep your skin looking luminous and firm for much longer.

Some natural supplements can help to boost collagen levels. Grape seed extract supplements, for example, protect the existing collagen in the skin by boosting antioxidant levels in the blood. Collagen is very vulnerable to the effects of free radicals, so it is easy to see why antioxidants can be so effective.

Collagen supplements, specifically liquid collagen supplements, are an increasingly popular way of boosting collagen levels in the skin. Used as part of a daily healthy skin routine, collagen drink supplements, such as LAC Taut Premium Collagen , deliver a high concentration of ingestible hydrolyzed collagen to boost your levels, improve collagen production, and firm and strengthen not only the skin, but the hair and nails as well.

Collagen is a large molecule in its natural form, making it too difficult to digest easily and be absorbed through the intestine into the body. Hydrolyzed collagen, on the other hand, has been broken down into smaller molecules, so it is much more digestible and easily absorbed. Taut Premium Collagen delivers a potent shot of this hydrolyzed collagen in drinkable form, allowing you to easily take your supplement and allowing the valuable collagen to quickly make its way to the waiting cells.

Keeping your skin young-looking and healthy does not have to be a major chore. With proper care, and the right nourishment both inside and out, you can even reverse the signs of aging, preserving your skin's beautiful, luminous look for years to come.

It was difficult to spot the difference because you look at your face every morning. You stumble upon an old picture from college or even just five years ago. “My skin used to be so smooth and firm!” “Where did that saggy, extra skin come from underneath my chin?”

Skin issues can be emotionally difficult to deal with. We feel self-conscious when there is a giant, red pimple on our nose or when there are more dark spots and less firmness in our skin. It is the first thing people see and generally, we cannot hide it.

As a teenager, I struggled with acne and later in my twenties, I remember waking up one morning with dry, scaly patches on the bridge of my nose and on my neck. Seemingly overnight, I found myself dealing with moderately severe eczema.

People would ask, “What’s wrong with your neck? Did you get a really bad sunburn.” As much as I tried to convince myself that I was not self-conscious about my skin, these innocent comments from friends and family started to wear down on me.

I would hesitate to wear t-shirts because they exposed my neck, and I did not want to deal with the “innocent” comments or have to explain that I was not contagious. I tried different eczema creams and lotions but this was more than just dry skin.

As much as I disliked going to the doctor, my mom, who is a pharmacist, convinced me to make an appointment with my family physician. My doctor examined my skin and came back after 5 minutes with two tubes of medication—two different forms of topical steroid creams. He said, “Just apply these until the patches go away.”

“How long will I have to use these?”

“Probably off and on for the rest of your life.”

That just did not make any sense to me. This was one of those turning points in my life that started me down the path of looking for answers about what these symptoms mean and how to get to the root cause of the issue rather than just covering up the issue with medications.

Little did I realize, or did my family physician, that my form of eczema (also commonly called atopic dermatitis) was not primarily a skin disease, but rather a sign that my body’s internal environment was out of balance.

My mom was always the one encouraging myself and her customers at the pharmacy to use as few medications as possible. She promoted healthy lifestyle and nutrition because she understood that medications were not the answer to all health problems. You might see why I was inspired to look to a different approach to medicine. My holistic medical education at Bastyr University, an accredited naturopathic medical school, taught me to look at symptoms in the context of whole-body health.

Even if you do not have a skin condition, taking care of your internal environment will keep your skin healthy, radiant, and smooth. 

Let me explain.

Produced by fibroblasts, elastin is an important protein that enables our skin to return to its original shape after it stretches or contracts. Elastin fibers are like little rubber bands in the connective tissue throughout our bodies. Eventually, the fibers lose their ability to snap back.

Through the years, there are many things that can take a toll on your skin, including the sun, bad habits, and pollution. Exposure to these elements can damage the elastin fibers in your skin, which causes the skin to sag and stretch.

Loose skin and tissue under the upper arm area due to damaged elastin is a common issue. Flabby upper arm skin may make you feel reluctant to wear sleeveless shirts and swimsuits. Factors that contribute to sagging underarm skin include aging, smoking, genetics, and weight loss.

When your weight fluctuates, it can break or weaken the elastin fibers in the dermis, which results in the loss of tensile strength. Therefore, the skin is unable to bounce back and regain its original shape, similarly to when a rubber brand is stretched beyond its limit. If you lose weight and simultaneously lose muscle mass, this leads to a loss of tone that causes the skin in the underarm area to appear flaccid. 

Here are some tips for avoiding and treating sagging underarm skin.
