Love The Skin You Live In: Beauty Tips For Young & Radiant Skin

Dr. Deepa Verma

Our skin is the largest organ, providing a barrier between the external and internal worlds. What we put on our skin gets absorbed directly into our bloodstream, bypassing the gut, so the bioavailability of products is very high.

What does this mean? It means that we need to pay close attention to products we are using and these include deodorants, sanitizers, shampoo, soap, makeup, sunscreen, hair dye, lotions, perfumes/colognes.

We all want glowing and radiant and youthful skin, and this is not limited to the face. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen and becomes thin and crepey. There is increased laxity and the skin starts to age and loses its luster.

I always tell my patients to first look at what they are eating. You are what you eat, as the old adage goes. Food is your medicine or your poison. Reduce or avoid consumption of meat and dairy products as they can affect the texture and quality of the skin. Eliminate refined sugars and processed, greasy foods also because this damages the skin integrity. Start to use more organic and natural skincare and haircare products. Synthetic, lab-made chemicals are harmful and damage the skin.

Look into medical-grade skin care as well as non-surgical procedures to boost skin radiance and youthfulness. I personally love laser skin resurfacing and RF microneedling for anywhere on the body. These procedures aid in collagenesis. I also recommend doing monthly exfoliation and dermabrasion to clean the skin in addition to plumping it up. Hyaluronic acid fillers and neuromodulators are great ways to accent skin quality. In my aesthetics practice, I have a wide range of devices that produce amazing results in patients from Cutera’s Secret Pro and Juliet and Excel V Plus to truSculpt for body contouring to Hydrafacial.
