The first noticeable sign of ageing from 25 onwards are fine lines and wrinkles. These
lines appear on different areas of the face and body, and are easy to spot.Sagging skin
is the biggest concern in an ageing body, and it is not untreatable.
Here are some ways to control sagging skin:
Protect your skin from the sun every day : Whether spending a day at
the beach or running errands, sun protection is essential. You can protect your skin
by seeking shade, covering up with clothing, and using sunscreen that is broad-spectrum,
SPF 30 (or higher), and water-resistant. You should apply sunscreen every day to all
skin that is not covered by clothing.
If you smoke, stop : Smoking greatly speeds up how quickly skin ages.
It causes wrinkles and a dull, sallow complexion.
Avoid repetitive facial expressions : When you make a facial expression,
you contract the underlying muscles. If you repeatedly contract the same muscles for
many years, these lines become permanent. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce lines
caused by squinting.
Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet : Findings from a few studies suggest
that eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables may help prevent damage that leads
to premature skin ageing. Findings from research studies also suggest that a diet
containing lots of sugar or other refined carbohydrates can accelerate ageing.
Unless you’ve lost massive amounts of weight and have an unusual amount of extra skin hanging
loose on your body—which is its own unique issue—loose or sagging skin is a common problem that
comes with age.
Apart from wrinkles, a loss of elasticity is another sign of ageing skin. With age, your skin
loses its tautness and becomes loose. With ageing, the combined effects of our genetics, sun
damage and lifestyle choices affect the elasticity of our skin. Skin sags primarily due to the
loss of volume and also because of a decrease in collagen and elastin.
Over time, there are a number of factors that affect the way skin looks. This is especially true
of facial skin, which is nearly always exposed. As the body ages, genetic factors, changes in
weight and sun damage can all have serious effects on the skin’s elasticity and, therefore,
Collagen and elastin give your skin its natural elasticity and keep it firm. Elastin fibers
inside the skin are proteins that help the skin “bounce back” from contracting into facial
expressions and stretching, allowing it to return to its original smooth form. Collagen is
another critical protein that forms the skin’s structure. These building blocks of the skin
keep it smooth, flexible and elastic.
As you age, your body simply produces less collagen and elastin in the skin. As this happens,
the impact of normal stretching and contraction from facial expressions and exposure to the
elements is more permanent and sagging, as well as fine lines and wrinkles, are the results.
