The Relationship Between Your Metabolism, Skin & Hair

The Relationship Between Your Metabolism, Skin & Hair

How Metabolism Affects Your Skin & Hair

Metabolism and skin

Metabolism is the process of converting nutrients into energy in the body. But did you know that the skin has its own metabolism? 

The skin’s metabolism is the combined process that regulates collagen production, cell turnover, and damage repair. Like your body’s metabolism, your skin’s metabolism slows down with age and is affected by environmental factors such as UV rays, pollution, and airborne toxins such as cigarette smoke. 

To stimulate the skin’s metabolism:

  • Using exfoliating acids two to three times weekly helps to clear dead cells from the skin’s surface and stimulate cellular turnover.
  • Eat an antioxidant-rich diet and supplement the skin with a vitamin C serum to neutralize environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke, pesticides, and other pollutants that damage skin cells and promote aging. 
  • Use a retinoid on the skin to stimulate cell turnover by exfoliating the skin’s deeper layers. 

How metabolism affects hair

The matrix cells of hair follicles also fuel metabolism and regulate cell division and hair growth. Growing healthy hair requires good nutrition, and you can stimulate hair growth by boosting your metabolism.
