Your diet certainly has an impact on your appearance; your weight, complexion, muscle mass, nail strength, hair luster, and even your susceptibility to wrinkles and other signs of premature aging are all influenced by the foods you eat.

Background: Nutritional factors play a key role in normal dermatologic functioning. However, little is known about the effects of diet on skin-aging appearance.
Objective: We evaluated the associations between nutrient intakes and skin-aging appearance.
Facial chemical peels are helpful for you if you have facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation on your skin. If you present a skin which is severely damaged due to deep wrinkles, you can be a good candidate for the chemical facial peel.
If you want to keep your youthful skin appearance, you need to know why your skin starts to change as you age. I have listed some of the most important things that affect skin appearance and some of the ways to prevent the skin from aging too fast. The sooner you start applying these ideas the longer you will keep your youthful appearance.
As you age here are some of the changes that will occur:
* Your top skin layer, epidermis, becomes thinner and more fragile
* Your skin becomes drier, since oil glands produce less oil
Everyday you wash, shave, shampoo, clip your nails, wash, and dry your hair. Personal grooming, for most people, is a series of well-entrenched habits. And in most cases it is over done. Would you be willing to change your routine if doing so made your skin look more attractive and created a better-looking you?

Designed to allow sun-free tanning and help prevent skin cancer, implants using the drug melanotan are being developed by a biotech firm in sunny Australia, which has the world's highest rate of skin cancer.
