A Secret Fountain Of Youth: Biohack Your Skin Health With Natural Rejuvenation Tactics And Powerful Collagen Production Herbs — #059
Manage episode 233649519 series 2485681
We all want to look younger, feel healthier, and have radiant skin. Unfortunately though, in today's modern world, there are more toxins, and environmental factors working against us in terms of our skin health, and looking youthful. And don't even get me started on how food affects your skin health, with processed junk damaging all parts of the human body, leading to accelerated aging, and people looking older beyond their actual chronological age.
Skin is unbelievably important to the human body. It contains photoreceptors which help regulate our hormones depending on the time of day, it acts as a barrier to stop things like hedgehogs and tarantulas from getting inside us, helps regulate our internal temperature, and it protects us from things like dirt, dust, and radiation. You should love your skin – without it, you’d be toast.
But, there's a lot of good news when it comes to skin health. Like any part of your body or health routine, your skin health can be biohacked to keep it more healthy, looking younger, and doing a better job of protecting your body from all those things trying to get inside you and damage everything keeping you alive. And that's exactly what I'm covering in this solo skin biohacking episode of the Bio Alchemy podcast, where you'll learn what to put in, on, and around your body, to best maintain a youthful glow.
In this episode, I talk about the two major building blocks to good skin health, the kinds of things that degrade your body's stores of collagen and elastin, what chemicals are most commonly found in skincare products you need to avoid to take the best care of your skin, why taking oral collagen isn't as amazing as some people think for skin health, what astaxanthin is and how it can assist in rejuvenating your skin, the scientific benefits on shilajit to collagen production, why blackberry leaf extract is being looked at as a natural skin protecting herb, the oil I use on my skin daily to maintain soft skin, and much more.
