Japanese women have long been admired for their beautiful skin. Smooth and healthy, their complexions seem to be ageless, remaining even-toned and wrinkle-free even as they age into their 40's and 50's, and beyond.
Japanese women credit a variety of factors for their ability to age so gracefully, including a well-balanced diet, exercise, keeping stress to a minimum, and protecting and caring for the skin. This last factor is especially important, since the majority of the damage that our skin suffers is due to external forces, including over-exposure to the sun and environmental pollution.
Fighting Nature with ... Nature?

Natural medicine is a very important part of culture in Japan and throughout Asia. Natural extracts, oils and creams are applied to the skin, hair and nails to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize and protect. Many natural substances are also ingested as foods or supplements. In many cases, ingesting certain nutrients and substances is better than simply applying them topical, since the entire body can benefit.

Japanese culture has embraced supplementation as a step in improving and maintaining their overall health and preserving their youth and beauty. Vitamins and botanicals have always been popular, as have more unusual substances such as powdered pearls. One of the more popular ingestible supplements that has been gaining in popularity in Japan and throughout Asia is liquid collagen.
Keeping it Together with Collagen

Skin, tendons, and ligaments all contain high concentrations of a protein called collagen. Collagen is a very abundant protein in the human body; the skin alone is made of almost 70% collagen. If you are familiar at all with anti-aging treatments, you've probably heard of collagen and perhaps even used topical products containing it. But why is collagen so important to keeping the skin youthful?

Collagen  functions throughout the body as a kind of structural framework for cell production and renewal. When we are children, our collagen levels are at their highest, which is why we are so flexible and have such smooth, plump skin. As we age, though, collagen production slows down and, by the time we reach our late 20's, production has completely stopped. As collagen slowly begins to decline, and as external factors chip away at the remaining collagen in our bodies, the effects of the loss begin to show. Our joints become stiffer, our injuries heal more slowly, and our skin begins to lose elasticity and smooth, youthful appearance.

Collagen is now an ingredient in many anti-aging creams, and it has also been used as an injection by dermatologists for decades. One of the newest forms of collagen supplementation is liquid collagen, a drinkable form of this important protein that may actually help boost any remaining collagen production in the body.
Liquid collagen replenishes the body's stores, improving the skin's tone and texture, and protecting it from future damage.

Introducing ... Liquid Collagen!

Liquid collagen, also known as   ingestible collagen   or hydrolyzed collagen, has been slowly making its way from Asia into Europe and the United States. This drinkable form of collagen protein is sourced from either animals or fish, with fish being considered the highest quality because it is easier for the body to absorb more completely. Collagen drinks, such as   LAC Taut collagen drink , contain a number of antioxidants and vitamins that work with the collagen to maximize its positive effects on the body.

Liquid collagen supplements help to improve the levels of collagen in the body that deplete as we age. Consuming liquid collagen supplements has been shown to improve the condition of the skin all over the body, improving the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face and neck. Liquid collagen also benefits the hair and nails.
Liquid collagen supplementation can also benefit your body's ability to function physically, strengthening connective tissues throughout the body and reducing joint pain and stiffness.

Wisdom from the East

Aging is a part of life, one that cannot be avoided. It can, however, be made decidedly more pleasant and enjoyable. The Japanese, like many in Asia, have taken this approach to aging, finding ways to maintaining their beauty and vitality that are universally beneficial to the body as a whole. Working with nature and embracing natural supplementation, Japanese women have embraced supplements in every form, including ingestible and liquid forms, to get the most benefit out of each. Though the quest for the "Fountain of Youth" took place in the West, it is from the East that the true secret weapon in fighting aging and preserving youth has emerged:   liquid collagen .

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.
