Signs Of Ageing Skin

7 Signs of Ageing Skin

  Youthful, glowing skin is something we all want to maintain for as long as possible. Understanding how to recognise – and avoid – the signs of ageing skin is crucial for achieving this goal.

AGEING SKIN

As one ages, natural elastic tissue is lost, resulting in the skin to become loose.  There are many ways ones skin can age, and this depends on your lifestyle, the weather and genetics. Types of ageing differ from person to person, where one may experience pigmentation and another sagging skin for instance. 

Here are the seven most common signs of ageing skin so you can begin to fight them as early as possible:

WHAT ARE THE TOP SEVEN SIGNS OF AGEING SKIN?

SAGGING SKIN

Your skin produces less elastin and collagen over time. Without high levels of these, your skin can’t remain firm and strong and is more likely to sag.

Gravity and gaining and losing weight can also stretch your skin and cause it to sag.

DULL SKIN TONE

When dead skin cells build up on your face your youthful glow is compromised and your skin tone can appear dull.

Your skin renewal decreases about 7% every 10 years, which means fewer new skin cells to combat dull skin.

DRY SKIN

Your skin doesn't produce as much natural moisture as you get older. This can cause the uppermost layers of your skin dry out.

Sun damage and decreased cell activity can all also cause dry skin over time.

THIN SKIN

The lower layer of your epidermis slows its rate of cell production as you age.

This process thins out your epidermis and dermis and makes your skin more prone to wrinkles.

SKIN THAT EASILY BRUISES

Your blood vessel walls become weaker and thinner over time. Weak blood vessel walls are easier to break and cause bruising.

AGE SPOTS

As you age, your melanocytes (pigment cells) multiply more quickly and can cluster together to form age spots.

Age spots will most likely appear on areas of your skin that are exposed to the sun the most, like the back of your hands.

LINES AND WRINKLES

As your skin loses moisture, elastin and collagen, wrinkles can appear. The areas of your face that move the most, like your eyes and mouth, are particularly prone to wrinkles.

Smoking and excessive sun exposure can also speed up the formation of wrinkles.
