Introducing Skin Climate®
In the same way that overall climatic conditions impact our weather, your Skin Climate® impacts how your skin functions. Think about it like this. A tropical climate is typically hot and humid, while a polar climate is cold and dry. In the same way, an inflammatory Skin Climate® has low levels of antioxidants and internal antioxidant enzymes, while a normal/healthy Skin Climate® has ample levels of these important protective agents. Your Skin Climate®, or underlying condition, impacts how your skin functions. For example, a Skin Climate® with adequate antioxidants and internal antioxidant enzymes might reduce your chances of getting a sunburn, in the same way that using rain gear protects you during a tropical rainstorm. On the other hand, a Skin Climate® that does not have enough antioxidants and internal antioxidant enzymes cannot protect you from the sun’s ray, in the same way as accidentally leaving your rain gear on the bus cannot protect you from the rain when you are trekking through the rain forest.
Let’s dive in further.
What you see in the mirror tells you so much about what’s happening underneath your skin, contributing to its appearance. This is impacted by a variety of factors such as your diet, level of exercise, quality of sleep, how well you’re managing stress and your mental health, and your body’s internal inflammation, which is connected to a ton of health concerns. Toxic build-up in the deeper layers of the skin contributes to inflammation, and may appear as:
- Premature aging and wrinkling in the skin
- Brown liver spots which project an older appearance
- Red itchy rashes anywhere on the body
- Deep painful rashes which may lead to ulcers
Along with your internal environment, Skin Climate® is also impacted by the external environment. You’re sitting in traffic, you’re exposed to secondhand smoke, you forget your sun protection – it’s all exposure to harmful free radicals that have a negative impact on Skin Climate®, accelerating the aging process.
Our Skin Climate® Series covers the following:
What is chronic inflammation and how do we fight it?
What is free radical stress and how do we protect ourselves?
