Aging is NORMAL but a process that almost every person dreads.
Aging is synonymous to growth but most likely associated to degeneration which happens after an individual reach full maturity or when one reaches the age of 20 or just after puberty.
Everyone ages, it’s normal but one can age gracefully more than others through basic knowledge and of course some hard work and dedication.
Changes in the skin inevitably happen as years pass. Gravity causes skin to droop downwards due to its continuous pull on our bodies and facial skin. Also, exposure to UV light or Ultraviolet radiation, breaks down our skin’s connective tissue which speeds the natural aging process and becomes the primary cause of early wrinkling.
Here are some visible signs of ageing of the skin:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Thinning of the skin
- Appearance of age spots
Knowing all these signs, we can somehow delay the process of aging by taking special care of our skin.
There are 8 ways to reduce premature skin aging:
- Eat a healthy and well-balanced diet
- Protect your skin from the sun
- Drink less alcohol
- Exercise often
- Good skin care
- Plenty of sleep
- Avoid high amounts of stress
- Avoid smoking
Let it also be known that collagen plays an important role in maintaining a youthful skin. These are normally present in abundance together with elastin when we are young, but start to diminish as we reach the age of 35. Collagen and elastin becomes disconnected resulting in the sagging of skin.
Top 10 anti-aging ingredients:
