The Link Between Your Heart and Your Skin

Written by a DermaCenter Medical Spa Aesthetician

Many people are not aware that having a healthy heart and normal blood pressure can aide in the fight against premature aging and other adult skin issues. Elevated blood pressure can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and under eye bags. These problems may occur for a few different reasons. High blood pressure causes lack of oxygen to vital organs – such as the skin – and sleep disorders. When the skin cells are lacking oxygen, the skin becomes dry, leading to pronounced wrinkles and lines. Lack of sleep does not allow the skin to naturally heal and repair itself.

 

Overall, maintaining a healthy heart and normal blood pressure is not only important for overall health, but it also plays a big role in appearance. Having a well-balanced, healthy diet, exercising daily, and reducing sodium and alcohol intake can improve blood pressure, leaving clients looking and feeling their best!

    Serenity by Salt Kalahari opened here in the Poconos with much fanfare a few years ago. My husband used to be a delivery driver who often brought their heating and cooling equipment onto the grounds and would come home and tell me all about the massive indoor and outdoor waterpark with his eyes sparkling with child-like excitement and as big as saucers as he gave me detail by detail. He and the kids would often talk about how amazing the waterpark looked, but…
