Did you know that your skin is the largest organ of the body? Your skin is one of the first things other people notice about you, and it is probably one of the first things you notice about yourself when you look in the mirror every morning, afternoon and evening. Your skin health has a powerful impact on your emotional and mental wellbeing, as poor skin tone, fine lines and blemishes can dramatically undermine your self-confidence. Unhealthy or damaged skin can also be indicative of more serious internal problems manifesting on the surface.
Healthy skin helps you feel beautiful:
Beauty is more than skin deep, but it can be difficult to feel attractive when the face, arms, legs, elbows, hands, feet you present to the world each day are blemished, sagging, tired or dull looking.
Healthy skin facts:
Collagen is a structural protein and is a principal component in skin. When it decreases, you get wrinkles and sagging. When it increases you get firm, youthful looking skin. So, if you want to keep young looking skin you need to wake up those little collagen productions centers in your skin.
It truly is that SIMPLE. But How Do You Do It?
First, Collagen creams are nowhere on the list. The molecules are too big to penetrate deeply so they just lay on top of your skin, and essentially act as a moisturizer and also contain many ingredients such as preservatives, fragrance oils, & animal products such as Lanolin.

SO.... What Are AHAs?
AHA stands for alpha-hydoxy acid. "AHAs are derived from sugar cane or other plant sources, which is why they are often referred to as fruit acids," says Dr. Howe, (A board certified dermatologist). Among AHAs is glycolic acid, which, according to Howe, is the smallest of the AHAs, is derived from sugar cane, and is the most widely used type in skincare products. Dr. Markowitz (board certified dermatologist) notes that AHAs are generally recommended for normal to dry, sun-damaged skin, thanks to their ability to enhance natural moisturizing factors within the skin.
Work with your own collagen! One sure way to produce collagen is to exfoliate. By exfoliating (removing the surface layer of dead cells) the skin is shocked into production of new cells which helps stimulate new collagen production.
Healthy skin is part of a healthy lifestyle
A poor skin care routine, frequent breakouts, age spots, fine lines and other skin issues can be symptoms of an unhealthy lifestyle, or even indicate more serious issues such as dehydration. Keeping up a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly will improve your overall health, which will in turn enhance your skin’s appearance.
