A lot of people are curious about how old I am…because I look so young to be a doctor. I jokingly say, “its the acupuncture” and it gets a laugh every time. But it is true, it is the acupuncture along with diet, exercise, and feeding my body and digestive system with healthy foods which translates to maintaining youthful and healthy skin! 

 

6 Ways to Improve/Maintain Youthful Skin

Green tea:

Green tea is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help sooth and reduce redness in the skin. Some experts believe green tea can help reduce collagen destruction that leads to wrinkles. Try starting with even just one cup of green tea a day so increase your antioxidant intake.

Vitamin C:

Topical vitamin C applied to the face has been shown to increase collagen production and protect against UV rays. When L – ascorbic acid, a type of vitamin C, is used, research showed the vitamin can improve pigmentation as well as inflammatory skin issues. Taking Vitamin C internally as a supplement is also a way to keep antioxidant levels high as well as boosting immune system. Suggested dose is daily: 1000mg vitamin C.

Reduce stress:

Stress is not only felt mentally, but physically as well. Stress can cause breakouts due to an increase in hormones, making the skin oilier and lessening the body’s defense against bacteria. Make sure to get adequate sleep and give yourself time off for relaxation to calm the mind and reduce stress.

Monitor sun exposure:

It is common knowledge that high amounts of sun exposure over the years damages your skin and causes wrinkles. Make sure to always wear sunscreen on your face to protect against harmful UV rays. Even if it is overcast outside, you are still exposed to UV rays. It is important to wear a high SPF sunscreen on your face year round to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer.

Omega-3 fatty acids:

Increasing your intake of omega-3 fatty acids is not only good for overall health, but can also help reduce wrinkles and keep the skin looking youthful. These fatty acids can be found in salmon, nuts, seeds, and fish oil supplements.

 

Acupuncture for healthy skin:

Cosmetic acupuncture

Facial Cosmetic acupuncture has become increasingly popular in the past ten years in rejuvenating the skin. Reports have found facial acupuncture can reduces lines on the face and leave skin smoother and glowing. Acupuncture is a natural and non-invasive treatment that does not have side effects. Treatment can also leave one feeling overall more relaxed and at ease. Getting regular acupuncture treatments can help the body’s natural ability to heal itself which keeps you relaxed, able to tackle stress, and helps to fight off infections.
