The Aging Process

How much do you know about skin? Do you know that the skin is our largest organ? It is, both in weight, between 6 and 9 pounds, and surface area, about 2 square yards.

The skin protects you from bacteria and viruses, helps you sense the outside world and regulates your body temperature. That's why it is so important to know how to protect it and keep it healthy as you age.

So, why is it that so many people neglect to care for their skin?  

Premature aging is a consequence of poor care for skin, including poor nutrition.

  • Factors that accelerate aging:
  • Environment exposures
  • Poor diet
  • Smoking
  • UV exposure
  • Harsh skin-care products
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Stress
  • Acne

A key part in the formation of a wrinkle is inflammation and damage to collagen. To fight aging, start by increasing your cell turnover. Younger people experience cell turnover every 28-30 days, and by age 60 it's as many as 45-50 days. Increase your cell turnover by exfoliating. 

The next step is to decrease your free radical damage, which causes harm to your collagen leaving the molecules to become stiff and inflexible. You can do this with the use of antioxidants.

Following that is decreasing sun damage, which can be done by using sunscreen. 
And last but not least, decrease inflammation that is caused by dehydrated skin, acne, and rosacea, among other things. To decrease inflammation, nourish and hydrate your skin.
We hope that YOU do what's right for your skin. 

Success Story

Diane Witwer

Rx SKIN THERAPY: What is your skin type?
Diane Witwer: I have normal skin.

RxST: How did you get turned on to RxST?
Diane: My daughter works at a pharmacy that sells the line.
RxST: Tell us about your success with RxST?
Diane: I have loved every product since I started using them. I started by incorporating one product at a time and now I use the whole anti-aging line of products.
RxST: What are your favorite products?
Diane: The masques! I love both the Clarifying Facial Masque and the Hydrating Facial Masque. My skin feels so amazing after I use them and it just shines!

RxST: What would you say to anyone looking to improve their skin?
Diane: Look for a product line that can help you with your regimen. Before using RxST, I used a hodgepodge of products, was never consistent and never really saw results. RxST lays out the regimen for you and because you see results quickly, it's easy to be consistent. Now that I use RxST, I can tell a difference in my skin, my friends and even my husband tell me how good my skin looks! 
RxST: What other skin care brands/products do you use and why? 
Diane: I only use RxST now!
RxST: If there is anything else you'd like to share, please do so below.
Diane: RxST is worth the investment. Start with one or two products and work your way up. The results you will see will be well worth it!

I don't know about y'all, but we are in the
thick of summer here in Arkansas.
Summer is a fun time for me because we
usually spend our weekends traveling as a family. 
During my teens and 20s, I was brutal to
my skin and I'm definitely paying for it now.
 If there's one thing I never leave home
without, it's gotta be my sun screen. You will
always find some in every bag I own because,
like me, all three of my children have very
fair complexions. I try to teach my children
the importance of taking care of their skin at
an early age.  
So, with that in mind, I hope everyone is
having a fantastic summer and please
remember to use your sun screen!
