Skin 101 Part III - The Hypodermis and Foods that Support Luminous Skin

September 18, 2015

The hypodermis (yes, where they put the needle) is the thickest portion of our skin, made up of adipose tissue, or body fat.  It provides insulation and padding.  The general condition of our skin is dependent on the fitness of the hypodermis.  Its overall health is in turn dependent on diet, exercise and healthy living.  As we age, our hypodermis thins and atrophies, contributing to (along with hyaluronic acid loss) sagging and generalized attenuation.  The hypodermis attaches to the dermis with collagen and elastin, so again you’ve got a reason to make friends with those two and keep them happy.

 

Below are foods that keep the hypodermis happy, which in turn supports overall skin health:
