Stopping skin aging is keeping your skin soft, moist, and looking young longer...The skin is the largest organ of the body. It plays a vital role in the living process. It acts as a cover for the most important parts of our body. It is part of the immune defenses, guarding against bacterial, fungal and viral infections. Skin senses and regulates body temperature; it retains heat when it’s cold and eliminates it when the weather is hot; it alerts us to pain or pressure and is a mirror of many internal diseases, and other damaging reactions. For these reasons, Stopping Skin Aging for Life was written as an addition to our quest in delaying the aging process of man.


    1. Changes in the appearance and character of your skin are inevitable as you grow older, but their severity depends on your genes, habits and lifestyle. The external part of the skin is the epidermis whose function is to keep the moisture in skin and to prevent toxic substances from getting into the body.

    2. Causes of aging of skin are the loss of elastin and collagen, slowed reproduction of skin cells, reduction in the number of sweat glands, and decreased secretion of oil from the sebaceous glands. These are accelerated and aggravated by poor nutrition, recurrent fluctuations in weight, emotional stress, alcohol abuse, pollution, cigarette smoking and exposure to sun.

    3. Sun enhances skin aging. When you stay long enough on the beach under the intense heat of sun, no matter what factor of protective oil you apply, the sun’s ultraviolet rays will penetrate the skin and start to oxidize these water molecules. This process robs water molecules of their electrons, and in doing so, turns them into hydroxyls – the most dangerous free radicals. When hydroxyl production reaches a certain level, it causes cancer. The destructive effect of the ultraviolet light is a major reason for the scientific world’s current concern over the loss of the ozone layer from the upper atmosphere. The ozone layer filters out most of the ultraviolet that comes from the sun, effectively protecting us from a hydroxyl-induced cancer epidemic. For without this layer (and there is a hole in it the size of Antarctica caused by pollutants) the number of skin cancer would increase tremendously.

    4. Signs when Skin Ages:

    The internal layer of the skin contains glands, follicles, nerves, blood vessels, and elastin. As skin ages it loses some of its elastin. You know when you pinch a young man’s skin it promptly snaps back into place. However, when you pinch the skin of someone over 60 it stretches and falls back much more slowly.

    The protein collagen that supports and gives skin its body decreases as we age. As a result, your skin is eventually about 20 percent less thick or more when you were younger.

    The blood supply to the skin decreases with age too; there is fewer blood vessels and their walls are thinner and more fragile. This leaves the skin less well nourished and is vulnerable to injury, bruising, and infection.

    In young people whose skin is injured, skin is promptly replaced by new tissue. A sun burn is the best example of this renewal process. After the scorched, dead skin peels, new healthy skin forms. However, in older people, the ability of the skin cells to reproduce becomes lesser, and they have shorter life span... So, as you get older, it takes longer for your skin to heal than when you were young.

    Sweat glands in the skin decreases in number with age, and its sebaceous glands make less oil, so that the skin is not as moist as well lubricated. It then becomes dry and itchy.

    What Aging Skin Looks Like? Aging skin is thin, dry, wrinkled, discolored, spotted, fragile, inelastic, and in some very old people almost transparent, like parchment.

    The quest for a youthful skin is a multibillion-dollar industry throughout the world. Not just, actors, actresses and models need good skin; we all do, like you and me. The approaches range from topical creams, oils, and lotions to a variety of cosmetic surgical procedures, ingesting multi-vitamins and minerals, nutraceuticals, and free-form amino acids…

    Being now your friend body architect – and advocating that you can be the architect of your body, here are some helpful tips on skin care and stopping skin aging:

    1. Avoid the sun when it rays are strongest, between 10 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon. Wear a hat with large brim and a flap that covers the neck when under the sun.

    2. Wear a long-sleeved cotton shirt. It will filter about 50 percent of the ultraviolet rays, and an undershirt further increases protection to 70 percent. Use sunglasses with UV filters when driving or walking under the intense heat of the sun.

    3. Apply sunscreen liberally to exposed areas of the body about a half hour before you go outside and reapply it after swimming or perspiring heavily. The higher the SPF (sun protector factor) the better, but do not settle than anything less than 15... Personally, I will recommend 45 SPF, if available.

    4. Do not bathe more than once a day if your skin is dry; the hotter the water, the more drying it is. Use very mild soap that would not dry or irritate your skin.

    5. Dab your skin after a bath or a shower. Do not rub it. Leave it a little damp. Then apply some organic skin oil to help retain the moisture. If your skin is cracked, itched and inflamed, use a hydrocortisone 1% preparation. Or use this disinfectant, SOLUTION (chlorine dioxide) AB kit a.k.a. MMS.

    6. Wear a variety of handy gloves when gardening, heavy work, washing the dishes or working at anything that exposes your hands to chemicals or irritants.

    7. Dry skin is vulnerable to irritation and itching. Spicy foods, alcohol, coffee and too much physical activity can make all matters worse.

    8. Cold weather is the worst time for dry skin because the dry air and heated rooms reduce the humidity of the skin. Keep your home, especially your bedroom, as humid as possible, with a humidifier if necessary.

    10. One of the most important factors in keeping your skin young is the amount of moisture it retains. This is regulated by your water intake (drink plenty of water) and the chemicals derived from the polyunsaturated fats. These play a part in the immune response and lubricate connective tissue. They also account for the natural oiliness of the skin. This oiliness works to retain billion of water molecules in the tissue, keeping it well irrigated. Recently, this year 2019 and onward, I am using Extra Virgin Olive Oil as my good source of polyunsaturated fats for my skin and connective tissues lubricant.

    11. Therapeutic moisturizers, skin-peeling procedures, both chemical and using laser red light beams, an LLLT like my SAJORDA BODYcare lasers , removal of warts, eyelid tightening can improve the appearance of the aging skin. However, this is not permanent, it only alleviates the condition.

    12. From my personal experience, ingesting daily of vitamins C and E plus the multi-vitamins and minerals for the past 30 years has kept my skin young. Vitamin C stretches the collagen and vitamin E helps in the lubrication of the skin. These two vitamins, C and E, are free radical scavengers. It is best when you get it from daily food like fruits and organic vegetables. Remember, it’s the regularity that counts in the maintenance of our body and skin.

    13. My regular gym workout exercises like moderate weight training and facial massage helps build my body and face muscle firm.

    14. My ingesting of nutraceuticals like amino acids and Melatonin for a restful night sleeps for body self-repair also helps.

    15. And in the past years when I took glutathione and glucosamine it made a miracle in my life, my osteoarthritis and osteoporosis was cured or reversed, which gives me the opportunity to go into progressive weight training program. This program improves my poise and strength. And, to the surprise of my classmates, during our golden (50 years) reunion in 2010, I have a stretched skin that turned me out to be the youngest…

    Now that it is 2020...do I still look young at my age 77 ???

    To be continued.... Hahaha
