Your skin is your body’s largest organ, so it is vitally important to take good care of it. Did you know that hormones affect your skin and health as you age? Hormones are biochemical messengers that play a role in your metabolism, cardiovascular health, aging, sleep, memory, cognition, bone growth and sex drive.

Think of your body as a car and your hormones as the parts (i.e the engine, the brakes, the belts and hoses, the alternator, the radiator, etc.). Those parts must work together in sync so that the car runs smoothly. But if your brakes go out when you’re on the interstate or if your windshield wipers stop working in the middle of a storm, that will definitely cause a problem. The same with your hormones. When even one is off balance, you begin developing problems, including skin issues such as dryness, acne, fine lines and wrinkles.

Your body goes through constant changes, including your hormones. As you age, production of certain hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone changes, affecting your skin. Thankfully, there are several things you can do to support the hormone balance in your body: manage stress, eat a nutritious diet, get enough quality sleep and exercise regularly.

Additionally, Pensacola Wellness Solutions offers all natural hormone solutions for men and women. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy(BHRT) is the most natural and effective way to resolve the hormone fluctuations caused by aging and the external environment around us. Derived from natural ingredients, BHRT medications are designed to perfectly replicate the chemicals in your body that regulate hormone function allowing for better control of hormone symptoms. Avoid the risks that come with synthetic hormones that you find online, or other products promising unrealistic results and go with the natural relief from hormonal symptoms that only BHRT can.

Regulating hormone imbalances is key to ensuring your body – and your skin – stays healthy long in to old age. There are a few key signs that you can watch for, but scheduling a consultation with a hormone expert should be your first step in addressing any hormone imbalances that you may have. Pensacola Wellness Solutions specializes in accurately addressing hormone imbalance symptoms by creating custom tailored hormonal treatment plans specific to your needs!


If we’re spending all this time taking care of our skin, shouldn’t it stay perfect through the years? Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). However, as we age, sunlight and other factors reduce the amount of HA in our skin. The lack of HA will cause our skin to lose its structure and volume, which could create unwanted facial wrinkles and folds.

Using a dermal filler such as Juvederm® or Botox® is a safe and effective way to replace the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing out the unwanted wrinkles or folds.

At Pensacola Wellness Solutions, our team of specialists work hard on restoring your health, which includes your skin. Additionally, we want to ensure that you look as great as you feel. We would love to assist you in reaching your esthetic goals so that you can have younger, healthier and more vibrant skin.
Did you know that November is Healthy Skin Month? Here’s a few additional tips on how to keep your skin healthy from the American Academy of Dermatology:

  1. Wash your face every day and after exercising. Use a mild cleanser and lukewarm water.

  2. Use an antiperspirant, rather than a deodorant, to reduce sweating.

  3. Determine your skin type – oily, dry, combination, normal or sensitive – and choose skin care products tailored to that type.

  4. Examine your skin regularly for signs of skin cancer. Look for new or unusual spots, as well as anything changing, itching or bleeding.

  5. Protect your skin from the sun by seeking shade, wearing protective clothing and using a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

  6. Consider using petroleum jelly to treat minor injuries and moisturize dry skin and nails.

  7. Prevent blisters and corns on your feet by making sure your shoes fit properly. Wear nylon or moisture-wicking socks, and keep your toenails trimmed.

  8. Moisturize daily. Apply lotion or cream while your skin is still damp from bathing to lock in moisture and get the best results.
