Dr. Tess’s TV Appearance on CBS’s The Talk – 5 Tips on How to Slow Down the Aging Process – Part 1

A 2-part series looks at 5 beauty tips that Dr. Tess talked about on CBS’s The Talk TV show. Doing the wrong thing can certainly speed up your skin’s aging process, and you might be surprised at what some of those no-no’s are. Here’s how to do the right thing, Part 1.

1. Maintain a healthy weight.
Packing on pounds can make your skin look plumper on the surface, but carrying excess weight can cause your body’s levels of insulin (a hormone made by the pancreas that controls the amount of sugar in your blood) and cortisol to rise, which can break down collagen. You’ll see increased sagging from putting and keeping on as little as 10 to 15 extra pounds.

If you’ve lost a lot of weight, beware!  Yup, there is a downside to being too thin!   Loss of facial fat causes sagging and a gaunt, aged appearance. In addition, repeatedly gaining and losing weight can take its toll on the skin’s elasticity, leaving behind stretch marks and jowls.  Yo-yo dieting also causes premature aging. The repeated weight gain and loss stretches your skin and makes it loose and saggy.

Maintain a healthy weight with proper diet and exercise. Aim to keep your weight in the normal range, with a body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9.

2. Avoid beauty creams with toxic ingredients.  
Yes, exposure to some beauty cream chemicals do more harm than good. You may be surprised to hear this, but many ingredients in beauty creams actually speed up the aging process.

Avoid buying beauty creams that contain parabens, mineral oil, paraffin, petrolatum, dimethicone, and other toxic ingredients.

When buying a beauty cream, read the label carefully and talk to your dermatologist before experimenting with a new facial product.
