Aging Skin and Health Risks (Including Staph Infections) and How Phytoceramides Can Help

Aging Couple HappyKeeping our largest body organ healthy as we age is important, and several research reports show how aging skin can be at risk.

Recent studies show that weakened, aging skin is susceptible to diseases and infections. Keeping skin healthy and in an optimal state while aging is more than just a cosmetic issue.

Replenishing ceramides, which make up 40% of our skin, is important in the process for well-being. Ceramides diminish with age, leaving skin under-protected and less moist.

“The role of skin, our largest body organ, is a barrier to infectious microorganisms and bacteria; barrier to environmental elements; a regulator of body temperature and more,” says Kathy Heshelow, founder of Sublime Beauty®. “A weakened state or less than optimal skin can create health issues.”

A recent study confirmed that colonization of Staphyloccoccus on the skin is correlated to the decrease in ceramides in aging skin. The same study and several others confirmed that low ceramides are often linked to those who suffer from eczema, rosacea, psoriasis and dermatitis.

For aging skin, studies found that those with low ceramides have difficulty absorbing topical medicines.   We lose ceramides as we age, but they can be replenished naturally with Phytoceramides.

Older woman with Phyto bottleSublime Beauty® suggests several courses of actions:

1) Boost the ceramides in your skin naturally by taking a daily Phytoceramide. They are natural, plant-based and replenish the important ceramides at the cellular level.
2) Skin Brush daily. Dry brushing helps remove toxins and dead cells; helps keep skin in optimal condition; helps boost blood circulation; and helps move the lymphatic system. A site about Skin Brushing is found here.
3) Boost collagen in the skin, which also seriously diminishes with age. This and other details are included in the easy “6 Step System to Enhance Phytoceramide Use,” says Heshelow.
