Guest Post Dr. Murad: What can I do to look 21 Forever?

So I recently asked friend to the blog, famed dermatologist, and founder of Murad Skincare, Dr. Murad, "What can I do to stay looking 21 forever?"

Don't look at me that way. It's a valid question.

Here was his answer...

"Wouldn’t looking 21 forever be wonderful? If only it was scientifically possible! The good news is that there are easy steps that anyone can take to help us look and feel younger than we do today. 

One of the key barometers of health and wellness is the ability of our cells to hold water. As we age and our bodies experience free radical damage from a variety of sources, our cell membranes become more porous, meaning that our cells begin to lose their ability to retain water the way younger cells do, giving skin more of that dry, wrinkled, sallowed look.

Based on data I have gathered after seeing tens of thousands of patients, we now know that we can improve cellular water, helping us to look and feel younger, through a multidisciplinary approach that I call Inclusive Health.

Inclusive Health optimizes the health of the whole person, beginning at the cellular level through a 3-prong approach that focuses on Topical Care, to protect and reinforce the body’s barrier, Internal Care, nutritional guidance and dietary supplementation to build strong cells, and Emotional Self-Care, to reduce cell damaging stress.

Here are some easy things you can do right away to help you look and feel closer to 21 through an Inclusive Health Approach:

Add more colorful raw fruits and vegetables into your daily diet. By consuming fruits that contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, you’ll find more energy and minimize the risk of disease. Pomegranates, the most powerful of them all, help to boost the body’s natural sunscreen level while building a stronger immune system.

Take your ordinary approach to skin care to the next level. Sun damage is just as harmful in the winter as it is during the warmer months, so make sure you apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily that also contains anitoxidants, anti-inflammatories and hydrators to help build your skin’s barrier function. 

Make time for you.  Cultural Stress is a major factor in the erosion of health and happiness in the modern world. We’re now “logged-on” 24/7 which makes us all increasingly disconnected from real human connection. This lack of time drives us to make poor choices, including eating poorly and starving our most important relationships, which in severe cases, can eventually lead to more severe health problems including sleeping difficulty, depression and anxiety. To combat Cultural Stress, find time to relax, decompress and do the things you love. Remember - putting yourself first is the best line of defense against Cultural Stress.

Follow these very simple, yet extremely effective tips to help make your 21st year, and every year following, the BEST possible.

Thanks Doc!
FYI, Murad just came out with a whole new skin care system called Hydro-dynamic. He says it includes the most hydrating moisturizer he's ever created and it will NOT leave your face greasy.

I'll have to look into that.

I'm so depressed I can't stay looking 21 forever.

booo hoo
