Growing old should be seen as a gift, but so many people worry about what they are going to look like that they can sometimes forget this. If you take care of yourself; eat well, protect your skin from the sun and apply lotion, growing old gracefully is definitely achievable.
Remember that the lines on your face tell a story so you shouldn’t be worried or ashamed of them. Instead wear them as a badge of honor and think about your well-lived life. There are some signs of aging that can be prevented or treated, such as dry skin and pigmentation. Have a look below at some of the things you can do to help prevent skin damage.
What’s The Reason Skin Ages
Everyone’s skin ages and there are several factors that have an effect on how our skin matures. Our skin loses its natural suppleness and elasticity and there’s not much we can do about that. The way we live our life can have a effect on it though and it can make it speed up the progression. Having too much sun exposure without any protection, habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol, and stresses such as work or relationship problems all have a massive impact on our skin.
Can I Avoid it?
Well yes, some of it can. If you avoid what we just spoke about above it will have a positive impact on aging but it’s a natural process that we are never going to get away from. You can do things such as using a high factor sun cream to help block out UV light, invest in a skin regime to keep it healthy which will help with aging, and try to live a healthy lifestyle with your food choices to name a few. Some people opt to look at options such as face lifts but this isn’t something that should be taken lightly, try having a look at this face lift surgery video for some more information. You can also consider using anti-aging creams which they do suggest you can start using from your early 20’s to see the best benefit.
What Should You Look Out For?
There are 7 signs of aging to keep your eyes peeled for. Dryness, crow’s feet, dullness, tired eyes, drooping, sunspots and fine lines. Crow’s feet and fine lines are normally the first to start appearing in your late 20’s. They can appear earlier if you live a particularly bad lifestyle, sounds scary doesn’t it? Starting to get wrinkles already in your 20’s but it is a gradual process and nothing to be too concerned about. There are some products such as plumping cream you can use to help but you probably won’t need these straight away. Environmental factors can make your skin dry out so instilling a good skin routine is enough for you to look after your skin in the early stages.
