As we age, the skin has many layers and if you’re not familiar with the layers let me show you exactly what the three layers are.
The outer part, epidermis contains the skin cells, the pigment, and the proteins. The middle section, the dermis contains blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles and oil glands.
The dermis provides to the epidermis. The inner layer under the dermis, the subcutaneous layer contains the sweat glands, some hair follicles, blood vessels and the fat.
Skin changes are often determined by the sun, the food that we eat,
genetic makeup, there are all types of things that define our skin will change.
Collagen is a protein used by ourselves that helps keep the skin flexible, stretchable and keep it together. Did you know there are 25 different types of collagen in the body?

Also, remember aging in large part is a lot of it in your mind.
And the more we stressedout about those grey hairs, of those fine lines and wrinkles on our faces, the fasterwe start to age. Cortisol, that stress hormone actually makes you age faster as well.
Soone thing I wanna encourage you to do is continue to look in the mirror every single day andtell yourself how beautiful you are and how much you really love you and when you do thatthose stress levels are gonna start to go down.
You’re gonna start to feel better,you’re gonna start to look better. Six months from now, people are going to come up to you and they’re going to ask what you have been doing? Because you look timeless, ageless.
Stop celebrating those birthdays and start celebrating that ageless day because we’re only here for a moment and I want you to realize how precious this time is. And when you’rein the present moment you don’t have any time to think about how old you’re looking how any lines and wrinkles you have on your face.
So start to give back to you. Start to look at how beautiful you are and stat to see others in the same light. The more we judge others, the more we’re judging ourselves.
So look within that radiating, that glowing, that beauty comes from within you. It’s not a reflection that you see in the mirror anyway, hope you enjoy this video.
So as alwaysI’m Drew Canole, remember we’re in this together, and I’ll see you next week. This perfect for Wolverine claws.
