Hormones and Your Skin

"Your skin is one of your body's largest and most important organs and plays a number of roles in maintaining your overall health."

Obviously, your skin provides the physical barrier to protect what is inside of your body.  It also helps to regulate your temperature and act as a route for elimination for fluids like sweat and oils. This is why good lifestyle with disciplines in a self-care practice be taken seriously.

Our skin IS ruled by our hormones and is covered in small glands called sebaceous glands.  They secrete an oil called sebum that helps lubricate your skin and keep it healthy. Within these glands are receptors that respond to hormones, and react according to factors like hormone levels.

"There are millions of products out on the market that claims to "fix" your skin issues, but we encourage you to stop chasing the type and get back to basics when it comes to treating your skin."

In this next YOUNGER podcast episode, I will discuss the basics of how to maintain good health through your skin.  There are many factors to consider, such as age, diet, exercise, sleep, and stress.  Listen as I am inclusive in the opportunity for all to understand its powerful connection to living a youthful and regenerative life.
