The Fastest Signs of Aging
When it comes to beauty and aesthetic wellness, slowing down the signs of aging is always one of our first concerns. Aging becomes visible in many areas and many forms, from wrinkles and under-eye circles to veins and sunspots on our hands.
Visible signs of aging are natural and inevitable – but staying aware of the first depictions of aging can help you to prepare your prevention plan!
These Are the Signs of Aging
It is natural for skin imperfections to appear as we age. This is greatly affected by our diet, our environment, or our natural genetics. However, there are a few factors that signal our aging more noticeably.
These are a few of the most common areas that allow visualization of facial aging:
- Sagging Skin
Sagging skin is not always caused by weight gain and loss – as we age, our skin naturally loses collagen and elastin, thus resulting in lower elasticity.
Skin will become heavier and sag in areas of natural volume loss under the skin. Loss of collagen also allows skin to become less healthy and to sag.
- Dull Complexion
Without exfoliation to promote resurfacing and cell turnover, dead skin cells can build up on the surface of your skin.
As they accumulate, you may notice that your complexion becomes more lackluster.
The stem cells normally present in skin become less effective for replacing damaged skin too; this is a normal aging process.
There are ways to improve the quality and quantity of these skin-based stem cells.
- Facial Dryness
As we age, it becomes more difficult for our skin to retain moisture.
Sun exposure and cell damage can further exacerbate dryness, as well.
The skin has natural barrier protection built-in, but aging diminishes this. There are ways to improve your ability to lock in moisture and maintain youthful skin turgor.
- Sun Spots
These surface-level imperfections are also called “Liver Spots.” They develop due to compounded sun exposure. You may notice these develop on your face, neck, chest, and hands by 40 years old, or earlier if your skin tone is fair.
These are basically signs of radiation damage to the skin, and this is truly oxidative stress. There are ways to prevent this and to reduce the damage that is currently present.
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles can be caused by a combination of facial dryness, loss of elasticity, sun damage, overactive facial muscles and environmental exposure.
Crow’s feet around the eyes and smile lines are some of the first to develop. Glabellar (forehead) lines are the most obvious sign of aging.
These wrinkles are treatable, and it is very possible to enhance your youthfulness and eliminate wrinkles.
How Can I Prevent Skin Aging?
Again, aging is a normal part of life, but there are plenty of practices you can put in place to help postpone the signs of that aging as much as possible.
Here are some of the best practices for preventing signs of aging and skin imperfection:
- Wear sunscreen!
- Use a gentle facial cleanser.
- Apply Moisturizer.
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles with Botox.
- Plump hollow or sagging skin with dermal fillers.
- Utilize biological improvement treatments like PRP or stem cells
- Institute a comprehensive program of antioxidants and inflammation reduction
