Test your skin!

elasticity test

 

No doubts that we got rewarded if we live healthy and take care of  our skin. Our biological age may differ from our actual age dramatically.

Sun exposure, pollution and environmental conditions can affect our skin big time, but also, at about age of 45, we undergo other significant changes that affect our skin and it shows!

 

Perform super easy skin elasticity test to evaluate your true biological age and see if there is any premature aging that needs attention.

Pinch the skin on the back on your hand and hold for about five seconds (just count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005) and let it go. Observe how long it would take to the skin to flatten back!

 

1-2 seconds – the true age of your skin is under 30

3-4 seconds – the true age of your skin is 30-44

5-9 seconds – the true age of your skin is 45-50

10-15 seconds – the true age of your skin is 60 and over

 

You can test the skin in different areas to see your true biological aging!

 

 

If your skin elasticity is not as it used to be or the results show your true age older than your actual age, make sure you take necessary steps to restore your skin elasticity.

  • start wearing sunscreen
  • decrease sugar intake – it contributes a lot to the skin aging
  • quit smoking
  • stop eating processed foods, especially meats
  • relax
  • make sure you have a good night sleep
  • start taking food supplements that improve your skin
  • consider a series of facials like dermabrasion, microcurrent or thermage to boost collagen
