A healthy diet, supplemented with key nutrients is essential for healthy skin. What you eat often determines your skin’s appearance. Foods such as processed meats, soft drinks, sugar, and artificial sweeteners can accelerate skin aging. Conversely, natural foods like fruits, vegetables, raw nuts, egg yolks, and olive oil, to name a few, can slow skin wrinkling. Eating a diet rich in carotenoids, found in brightly colored fruits and vegetables, will actually change the appearance of your skin and provide the healthy glow we are all trying to achieve. A study published in the Journal of Evolution and Human Behavior concluded that participants who ate a diet rich in carotenoids, were found to be more attractive than participants that ate a typical diet or those that tanned.
Poor diet and certain medications can rapidly deplete nutrients, and in fact, most people are deficient in nutrients that are directly related with skin health. A high dose of molecularly distilled fish oil and optimal vitamin D levels keep the skin hydrated and reduce inflammation at the cellular level which will help to slow the aging process. A healthy gastrointestinal tract is important for skin health. High dose, physician grade probiotics can help replenish friendly bacteria in the gut that is lost with past antibiotic use and poor diet. Vitamin D3, fish oil, and probiotics aid in skin repair and are excellent for those with eczema and other chronic skin conditions. As we age, our bodies can become sensitive to certain ingredients in common foods that cause inflammation, discoloration, blemishes, etc. Common markers can be identified with a simple blood test.
At the Guyer Institute, we custom compound a prescription only, anti-aging cream. One component is a low dose of bio-identical hormones that, when applied topically have been demonstrated to improve the structure of elastic fibers in the skin. After six months of treatment, elasticity and firmness were significantly improved; wrinkle depth and pore sizes decreased by 61-100%. After continued use of the cream, an increased amount of collagen was found and no hormonal side effects were noted. Our customized cream is specially formulated with super antioxidants that help reduce free radical damage, which is associated with aging. This fabulous face cream is only available at The Guyer Institute; we encourage you to stop in for a complimentary consultation with our pharmacist.
