Use a Holistic Approach To Biohack Your Body Skincare Routine

Our skin is our body’s largest organ, which means it deserves to be cared for from head to toe. For radiant, healthy skin, biohackers need to address overall health. After all, what’s on the inside is ultimately reflected on the outside.

Daily Habits Impact the Health of Your Skin

When aiming to biohack our skin, our objective is usually to attain vibrant and healthy skin that not only looks great but also functions at its best. We know that biohacking encompasses cutting-edge technology, innovative ingredients, and scientific research to achieve maximum benefits for the skin. However, it is crucial to begin with the fundamentals, recognizing that lifestyle factors significantly influence skincare biohacking.2 One of the key aspects involves mitigating inflammation in the body, as chronic inflammation can damage the skin over time, leading to premature aging and other skin issues.1 

Non-Negotiable: Exercise, Quit Smoking, Reduce Stress

To achieve this, it’s vital to implement lifestyle factors such as regular exercise, eating a balanced diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods and essential fatty acids, and getting enough quality sleep each night.11 It is also advisable to refrain from smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as these practices can contribute to inflammation.2 Finally, stress reduction is essential. Indeed, the skin is particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of stress and systemic inflammation.12

Care for Gut Health With Probiotics and Whole Foods

Gut health is also vital when it comes to skin health. Recent studies have found that the gut-skin axis, which is the connection between the gut and the skin, plays a significant role in healthy skin. A healthy gut microbiome has been shown to promote healthy skin by reducing inflammation and improving skin barrier function. Conversely, imbalance in the gut microbiome, known as dysbiosis, has been linked to several skin issues, including acne, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis.2

By using the appropriate tools and techniques, it is now possible to optimize the well-being and visual appeal of the skin throughout the entire body, leading to a more vibrant complexion and improved overall health and vitality.

Quality Sleep

Quality sleep plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy skin. Studies have confirmed that chronic poor sleep quality is associated with increased signs of intrinsic aging and diminished skin barrier function.4 To promote optimal skin health, look to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night, which is what the CDC recommends for adults.3

Hydration

Keeping the skin hydrated is essential for maintaining healthy, glowing skin.4 Along with consuming water, hydrating skincare products can also have a beneficial effect; such as products that contain ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides.5

UV Protection

Protecting the skin from UV damage is paramount in maintaining skin health and preventing premature aging. Make sure to apply sunscreen on all exposed areas of the skin, including the arms, legs, and chest. Wearing protective clothing like hats and long-sleeved shirts can also help minimize UV exposure.6

Dry Brushing

Dry brushing involves using a firm, natural-bristled brush to gently exfoliate the skin and stimulate blood flow. The increased blood circulation detoxifies skin and promotes lymph flow and drainage, which can help make your skin smoother and softer. Additionally, it temporarily plumps up the skin, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite.7

Infrared Sauna

Saunas are very beneficial for the skin.8 These days, infrared saunas are becoming more popular for their many health benefits, including the positive impact they have on skin. Infrared light penetrates deeper into the skin than traditional saunas and regular use of infrared light has shown promising results in terms of healing, inflammation reduction, and skin rejuvenation.9

Cold Therapy

Cold therapy, which includes practices like cold showers or utilizing ice packs, has been found to offer a variety of advantages for the skin. It can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and promote lymphatic drainage. Cryotherapy, a treatment involving freezing or near-freezing temperatures, has also demonstrated a range of anti-inflammatory benefits.10

Biohacking Can Help You Rejuvenate and Nourish Your Face and Neck Skin

Use proven biohacking techniques to maintain healthy skin that radiates an inner glow. With frequent massaging and the application of the right ingredients, your facial and neck skin will look and feel great, even as you age.

Routine and Lifestyle Are Key To Skin Health

Lifestyle factors lay the groundwork for radiant skin. Therefore it’s extremely important to implement habits such as regular exercise, eating a balanced diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods and essential fatty acids, and getting enough quality sleep each night.1 Avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can also help reduce inflammation, as smoking and alcohol consumption significantly impact skin and volume-related facial aging.2 Another important aspect is stress reduction,  as the skin is particularly sensitive to the effects of stress and inflammation in the body.3

Facial Massage

Face massage is a popular biohacking technique for improving the skin on the face and neck. This technique involves using your fingers or tools to gently massage the skin, which can help increase blood flow4 and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.5  Facial massages can also help reduce puffiness, provide a temporary lifting effect, enhance lymphatic drainage, and relax facial muscles, ultimately reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.Tools such as facial rollers, gua sha, and heated vibrating massagers can all be incorporated into facial massaging.

Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific areas of the face to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This practice is thought to enhance both the health and aesthetics of the skin through several mechanisms, including increased blood circulation, reduction of wrinkles, alleviation of facial swelling, improvement of facial muscle tone, and refinement of skin texture.  It can also help relax facial muscles and reduce tension, contributing to a more relaxed appearance.17

Microneedling

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device equipped with sterile needles to create micro-channels in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which can promote collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.7

Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses red light wavelengths to penetrate the skin and promote skin health. When applied to the skin, this therapy helps stimulate the production of collagen, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation. It is versatile and can effectively address various skin concerns including fine lines,  wrinkles, acne, and uneven skin tone.9

Skincare Ingredients

Using specific ingredients in skincare products can yield a range of benefits for the skin. Some highly effective ingredients for achieving a glowing complexion include:

  1. Vitamin C: This potent antioxidant brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces inflammation, and stimulates collagen production.10
  2. Hyaluronic Acid: Naturally present in the skin, hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps the skin, making it an effective ingredient for promoting a youthful and radiant complexion.11
  3. Aloe Vera: As a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient, aloe vera soothes and calms the skin, reducing redness and irritation.12 
  4. Retinol: A derivative of vitamin A, retinol stimulates collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin texture and tone.13 
  5. Niacinamide: Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is a potent antioxidant that can help reduce inflammation, improve skin texture, and promote a more even skin tone.14
  6. Green Tea: As a natural antioxidant, green tea can help protect the skin from environmental damage, reduce inflammation, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.15
  7. Alpha-hydroxy Acids (AHAs): AHAs are natural exfoliants that can help remove dead skin cells. Products that contain glycolic acid or lactic acid tend to provide the best results.16

Cold Therapy

Help Skin Chill Out: Cold Therapy Is The Not So Secret Biohack for Skin Health

Cryotherapy, which includes a variety of treatments that use extreme cold, has been proven to have multiple benefits — including improved skin health. Schedule cold facials or simply turn on the cold water for noticeable results.

Cold Therapy Tightens Skin, Helps Circulation

Cold temperatures for short periods of time have been shown to have a number of benefits for the skin, including enhanced circulation, diminished oxidative stress, and reduced inflammation. These effects contribute to a rejuvenated appearance and a radiant, healthy complexion.1

To integrate cold therapy, also referred to as cryotherapy, into your skincare regimen, consider the following techniques:

Cold Showers

Cold water can help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and tighten skin. To harness these advantages, it is recommended to lower the water temperature below 60 degrees and immerse yourself for two to three minutes at a time. If you’re new to incorporating cold therapy into your routine, start with 30 seconds of exposure to cold water and gradually increase the duration up to one minute. Eventually, aim to extend your time under cold water to two to three minutes.2

Ice Rolling

Ice rolling involves using a handheld tool that contains a frozen roller to massage the skin. This can help reduce puffiness, soothe inflammation, and improve circulation.3

Ice Baths

Ice baths, also known as cold-water immersion, are a form of cryotherapy in which you submerge your body in an ice-cold bath for a short period of time (with a maximum recommended length of 15 minutes). Besides providing numerous advantages for the overall body, this form of submersion also contributes to tighter and firmer-looking skin.4

Cryofacials

Cryofacials involve using liquid nitrogen or a similar substance to cool the facial skin. The cold causes your blood vessels to contract and your pores to tighten; reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and giving the skin a healthy look.5

“The best thing you can do for your skin is to go into cold water — not shockingly, but gradually.”

Microneedle & Microcurrent

Microneedling and Microcurrent Procedures Are Beauty Biohacks

This isn’t as extreme as it sounds: Using small, sterile needles — or low-voltage currents — stimulates the skin for improved skin texture. Although machines are available for at-home treatments, working with a professional provides the most remarkable results.

Woman receiving a microcurrent beauty treatment on her forehead.

Stimulate Blood Flow for Fewer Wrinkles

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a small device equipped with sterile needles to create minuscule micro-channels in the skin. The micro-injuries created by the needles stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which can promote collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, as well as improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.1

The practitioner will usually apply a topical anesthetic cream before the procedure to numb the area. Temporary side effects such as redness, sensitivity, and swelling are common after the treatment. Compared to other skin resurfacing procedures, microneedling generally entails a shorter recovery time. In order to maximize the benefits, it is advisable to undergo a series of sessions, with several weeks between each session.2  

Derma-Rollers Are a Temporary Alternative

Roller devices designed for home use, commonly referred to as derma-rollers, also use small needles to puncture the skin, but these needles are shorter and duller, specifically intended to avoid penetrating the skin. While derma-rollers can stimulate blood flow, resulting in a temporary brightening effect, they cannot yield the same outcomes as a professional microneedling treatment.3

Microcurrent Therapy Also Improves Skin Appearance

Microcurrent therapy involves the use of low-level electrical currents to stimulate the muscles and tissues of the body. This treatment is primarily used for pain relief, muscle rehabilitation, and to improve the appearance of the skin. When employed on the face, microcurrent therapy can contribute to toning and lifting the facial muscles, reducing the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines,4 and promoting increased circulation.5

Although there are several at-home microcurrent devices on the market, professional microcurrent devices tend to be more powerful and effective.

“As with anything new, you want to introduce a microcurrent device slowly into your routine for the long run, as opposed to going for a one-time treatment.”

Choose NIR Therapy for Skincare

Infrared light is a type of electromagnetic radiation that isn’t visible to the human eye. That said, it can be detected as heat.1 This light is commonly used in various skin treatments for its therapeutic benefits. Depending on the desired therapeutic effect, different wavelengths of infrared light can be used.  Near-infrared light (NIR) is the most prevalent choice for skin treatments.3

Infrared Therapy Offers a Radiant Complexion

When applied to the skin, infrared light has the ability to permeate the outermost layer, subsequently reaching the dermis and subcutaneous layers. This can stimulate collagen production, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and enhance cellular metabolism. As a result, a myriad of advantageous outcomes manifest in the skin, including refined texture, diminished presence of fine lines and wrinkles, and a rejuvenated, radiant complexion.2

At-Home or Professional NIR Devices Are Both Effective

Infrared light can be delivered to the skin through various devices, including handheld devices, light therapy beds or panels, and infrared saunas. These devices can be found in clinics or spas, while portable devices for at-home use are also readily available on the market.

“From inflammation reduction to healing of injuries, stimulation of collagen production and even immune support, there’s not much that red light and near infrared light can’t help with.”

Advanced Supplements

Skin Supplements Are Your Ally For Biohacking Your Beauty Regime

Certain micronutrients play an especially important role in maintaining a vibrant, glowing skin. Combined with other methods, supplements can help you biohack your way to optimal beauty.

Smiling woman bringing a skin beauty supplement to her mouth.

Focus on a Healthy Lifestyle and Diet First

While supplementation can be used to improve skin health and vitality, it’s important to remember that its effectiveness is optimized when complemented by a wholesome diet and lifestyle choices. Supplements should therefore be used in combination with lifestyle changes for optimal results.

Collagen Supplements

Collagen is a protein that is naturally found in the skin and that helps maintain skin elasticity and firmness. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. To combat these effects, collagen supplements, such as hydrolyzed collagen powder or collagen capsules, can be employed to bolster skin health and diminish the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines.1

Vitamin C Supplements

Vitamin C is a powerful and well-known antioxidant that can help protect the skin from free radical damage and promote collagen production. When applied topically to the skin, vitamin C can facilitate tissue healing and alleviate the visible effects of photoaging, hyperpigmentation, and tissue inflammation.2

Omega-3 Supplements

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids which play a vital role in maintaining optimal skin health. Incorporating omega-3 supplements, such as fish oil or algae oil, supports skin health and reduces inflammation.3

Probiotic Supplements

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that can help support overall health and well-being, including skin health. Probiotic supplements, such as lactobacillus or bifidobacterium strains, have been demonstrated to fortify skin health and alleviate inflammation.4

Vitamin A Supplements

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that holds significant importance for skin health by aiding in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.  Vitamin A supplements, such as retinol, are used to promote skin health and reduce signs of aging.5

“Think of supplements as a piece of the puzzle: a targeted supplement regimen can benefit the skin in conjunction with other healthy lifestyle and dietary habits.”

Beauty Biohacking: It’s All About The Details, Don’t Forget Your Nails

While your nails aren’t technically skin, they often provide clues for other health concerns. Give extra attention to the look and health of your nails and the skin underneath. Integrate these tips for stronger, longer nails.

Create a Routine for Durable, Beautiful Nails

Optimizing diet and lifestyle choices is key when it comes to the well-being of your nails. To further enhance nail health, biohackers often turn to the following tips and supplements.

Nail Care

To establish a solid base, biohackers can promote nail strength and durability by adhering to essential nail care practices. These include maintaining clean nails, reducing water exposure to prevent nail brittleness, utilizing mild nail care products, wearing gloves during household tasks, and steering clear of harsh chemicals and nail treatments like gel or acrylic nails, certain nail polishes, and acetone.1

Biotin Supplements

Biotin is a B-complex vitamin that is beneficial for nail health. Consider integrating biotin supplements into your routine to bolster nail strength and hardness, as biotin plays a vital role in the synthesis of keratin—a fundamental building block of nails.2

Collagen Supplements

Collagen is an important protein for overall skin, hair, and nail health. You can use collagen supplements to support nail strength and hardness, as collagen has been shown to increase nail growth and fortify nails.3

Vitamin E Supplements

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that is vital for skin and nail health. Incorporating vitamin E supplements can assist in fortifying nail strength and hardness, as this nutrient helps shield nails from potential environmental damage.4

Silica Supplements

Silica is a mineral that contributes to nail strength and hardness. Indeed, it helps strengthen the connective tissues that support nail growth. Adding silica supplements to your routine can support your nail health and help prevent nail brittleness and breakage.4

Iron Supplements

Iron is an essential mineral for our overall health. It performs a range of important functions, including oxygen transportation to the nails and other tissues. If you are iron-deficient, incorporating iron supplements, if recommended by a healthcare professional, can significantly contribute to the improvement of your nail health.5

Protecting the skin from harmful UV rays by using sunscreen and incorporating antioxidant-rich products can also help maintain skin health. Additionally, ensuring proper hydration, a healthy diet rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, and managing stress levels are crucial for promoting vibrant and glowing skin.

  • How can biohacking the face and neck area contribute to youthful-looking skin?

    Biohacking the face and neck area can contribute to youthful-looking skin through various techniques. These include facial exercises to tone the underlying muscles, facial massages to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage, and using targeted skincare products that address specific concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. Additionally, incorporating techniques like facial cupping or facial gua sha can help improve blood flow, promote collagen production, and enhance skin elasticity.

  • What is the role of cold therapy in biohacking beautiful skin?

    Cold therapy, such as using ice rollers, cryotherapy, or cold facial masks, can have several benefits for beautiful skin. Cold temperatures help constrict blood vessels, reducing inflammation, puffiness, and redness. Cold therapy can also promote lymphatic drainage, improve circulation, and provide a tightening effect, resulting in a more refreshed and revitalized complexion. It can be incorporated into skincare routines or used as a pre-makeup treatment for a youthful glow.

  • How does microneedling contribute to biohacking skin quality?

    Microneedling is a technique that involves creating tiny punctures in the skin using fine needles. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production, leading to improved skin texture, reduced scarring, and enhanced overall skin quality. Microneedling can also improve the absorption of skincare products, allowing for better penetration of active ingredients. It is typically performed by professionals but can also be done with at-home dermarollers or dermapens under appropriate guidance.

  • What are the benefits of incorporating infrared light therapy into a skincare routine?

    Incorporating infrared light therapy into a skincare routine can have several benefits. Infrared light penetrates deeper into the skin, stimulating collagen production and enhancing skin elasticity. It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Infrared light therapy also improves blood circulation, which promotes a healthy complexion and accelerates skin healing. Using infrared devices or seeking professional treatments can provide these benefits.

  • Are there specific supplements that can support biohacking for beautiful skin?

    Yes, certain supplements can support biohacking for beautiful skin. Collagen supplements, which contain amino acids essential for skin structure and elasticity, can help improve skin hydration and reduce wrinkles. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil or algae-based supplements, provide anti-inflammatory properties that support skin health. Antioxidant supplements like vitamins C and E or resveratrol can also protect the skin from free radical damage.

  • What strategies can be used to biohack strong and healthy nails?

    Nail health contributes to overall beauty, as strong and healthy nails can enhance the appearance of hands and contribute to a polished look. Biohacking strong and healthy nails involves maintaining proper nail hygiene, moisturizing the cuticles, and avoiding harsh chemicals or excessive use of nail polish removers. A balanced diet rich in nutrients like biotin, zinc, and iron supports nail health. Additionally, protecting nails from excessive moisture and trauma, using strengthening nail polishes or treatments, and avoiding habits like biting nails can all contribute to strong and beautiful nails.

  • What to consider when choosing skincare products for biohacking beautiful skin?

    When choosing skincare products for biohacking beautiful skin, it’s important to consider factors like the individual’s skin type, specific concerns, and ingredient quality. Opting for products that are free from harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and potential irritants can help prevent skin sensitivities. Look for products with beneficial ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, vitamin C, and botanical extracts that target specific skin concerns and promote overall skin health.

  • How can a healthy diet and nutrition support biohacking for beautiful skin?

    A healthy diet and nutrition play a vital role in biohacking for beautiful skin. Consuming a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats provides essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support skin health. Nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, and beta-carotene are particularly beneficial for promoting collagen production, protecting against oxidative stress, and maintaining a youthful complexion. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water is also crucial for skin hydration and overall skin health.

  • Can biohacking beauty for skin extend beyond external practices to include mindfulness?

    Absolutely! Biohacking beauty for skin can extend beyond external practices to include mindfulness and self-care. Managing stress levels through techniques like meditation, deep breathing exercises, or engaging in activities that promote relaxation can positively impact skin health. Prioritizing quality sleep, managing emotional well-being, and practicing self-compassion contribute to a radiant complexion. Taking time for self-care rituals, such as indulging in a facial mask, enjoying a soothing bath, or engaging in hobbies that bring joy, nourishes not only the skin but also overall well-being and beauty.
