My mother is already 50 years of age and I notice that she has a very thin skin. Did you notice it on your skin too? Did you know that thin skin is a sign of skin aging? Yes, that's a fact. Collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are components that our skin losses as we age thus, the thin skin. Thin skin is also caused by our bad habits and unhealthy lifestyle. Thank goodness, there are many treatments for thin skin known to man.

As I have said, there are many known treatments for thin skin. Here are three techniques or treatments on how you can bring back your skin's firmness and suppleness:

  • Change your cosmetics or skin care line – the number beauty product to replace is the anti-aging skin cream. If you still have thin skin after using your anti-aging cream, then it's about time to replace the one you are currently using. There are new ingredients added in the new anti-aging creams in the market today. These are CynergyTK, Nano Lipobelle HEQ10, and Phytessence Wakame. These ingredients have different functions that boost the skin. CynergyTK improves elastin and collagen production. This will eventually firm and thicken your skin. This particular ingredient comes from a sheep's wool. The second ingredient, Nano Lipobelle HEQ10, protects the skin from free radicals that weaken the skin cells. The last ingredient is Phytessence Wakame. This sea kelp retains hyaluronic acid which is needed for collagen. This sea kelp also protects the skin from damaging enzymes. So what are you waiting for? Go and buy a new anti-aging cream.
  • Take in supplements – food supplements with omega-3 slow down premature aging. Omega 3 also boosts production of growth hormones. Foods rich in protein are helpful too as they can help in proper functioning of keratin.
  • Avoid stress, ultraviolet rays and products with harsh chemicals – stress causes free radicals. Get rid of stress by doing exercises, breathing techniques or other recreational activities. UV rays damages the skin and causes skin cancer. Because of this, skin cannot renew damaged skin cells and renew collagen. Skin also peels due to excessive sun exposure. To avoid UV rays, wear oversized hats and sunglasses or put on a sunscreen lotion. Using products with harsh chemicals strips the skin off its protective layer. You can opt for natural products instead of using over-the-counter products. All this will worsen skin thinning so please avoid them.

A change in your daily routine and lifestyle will go a long way. Please remember to employ the treatments for thin skin as it can alleviate your skin's present condition. All you need to do is change your cosmetics, consume food supplements with omega 3 and foods rich in fiber, and avoid stressors and other harmful elements. Mind you, the treatments in this post are very easy. Get rid of your thin skin by following these simple steps.

Good luck and I hope your skin will be better after trying these techniques and treatments for thin skin.
