Skin Changes As We Age: Part Two

Thank you to Katherin at Skinway- here is part two of our aging skin series!

The aging process has many factors included such as ….
More exposure to sun light and UV rays which causes damage to skin at an earlier age
Hereditary factors affect our skin
Smoking stimulates a premature aging process causing cell damage underneath the skin
Pollution causes skin damage, closing the  pores which blocks skin from breathing
Our life style and daily routines too affect the skin leaving our skin lifeless
The sudden loss of weight also causes skin wrinkles as the fat content in the skin layers get reduced
Excess drug usage also makes skin look pale, dry and thinner
Skin as time passes loses its gorgeous glowing looks as it becomes too thin and saggy,
damaged, dry and pale. Skin coloration varies from dull to dark and vice-versa depending on the
individuals genes.

The fleshy skin layer gives a bony skeleton look as it becomes less energized.

We can rectify these skin problems with proper exercise. As the collagen and elastin
present in the connective tissue of the skin gets weaker or decreases in number, our skin is prone to
shrink and wrinkle  and looses fat, elasticity and smoothness.

Facial muscles get accustomed to our facial expressions  as the wrinkles form in the face.
Creases on the forehead, skin drooping on the cheeks and neck, shrinks at the margin of
lips, eye wrinkle marks , under eye swelling and dryness in skin all occur. Wrinkles can be treated with a healthy balanced diet which includes fresh fruits and vegetables, green leaves, dry fruits and some fitness exercises. Skin tone and texture can be maintained as healthy and nourished by drinking more water. Aging of skin is not preventable as it is a natural happening process. However here are some remedies can be made to achieve a sparkling skin.

Apply smashed banana pulp on the face, leave it for 20 min, wash it off with cold water. This
will make skin rejuvenated and supple.
Apply egg white on skin and under eyes, wash it off after it dries up.
Smash apple pulp and apply over the face and wash off after 15 min, it makes skin fill the
wrinkles with periodic use.
Avoid direct use of turmeric which may cause more wrinkles on a continuous basis.
Apply a mixture of lemon juice with sugar and apply in knee areas to remove darkening.

Use a natural moisturizing cream to massage the skin every night to get soft and supple skin.
Use sun screen lotion to prevent skin diseases due to over exposure to UV rays.
Mental health is also involved in maintaining healthy glowing skin. Physical fitness and mental
wellness are reflected on the skin. We can fight the premature aging process by keeping our body fit. Skin
maintenance is as important as feeling younger and healthier.
