When my body fat is low, my skin has more wrinkles and looks more dehydrated compared to when I have a normal amount of body fat.
This is due to three things:
- Having lower subcutaneous fat (which is the fat just below the skin). This makes the skin look more textured and dehydrated. On the plus side, you look more vascular.
- Consuming a lower amount of dietary fat deprives the skin of nutrients, which ordinarily help with maintaining supple skin
- Consuming less water-absorbing carbohydrates, which means you’re actually more dehydrated. Your body, in turn, sucks more water from your skin and supplies it to more vital organs.
A daily routine to help is after your shower, pat your face with water, then apply a layer of Hyaluronic Acid. Follow this with your standard facial moisturiser.
Follow this routine once in the morning and at night.
