A great number of people spend a lot of money on anti-aging creams and procedures. Fortunately, you can use various natural treatments and make some simple lifestyle changes in order to prevent premature aging.
WHAT DOES ACCELERATE THE NATURAL AGING PROCESS AND LEAD TO WRINKLES?
Before purchasing anti-aging products, you should understand what results in wrinkles. Specifically, as you age, your skin becomes more fragile and less elastic because of reduced collagen production. Collagen is a protein that forms the structure of your skin. As you age, you also experience a fat reduction in the deeper layers of your skin. Also, you can experience a reduction in the natural oils that are responsible for providing hydration. In short, this reduced production can cause your skin to become loose, dry, and thinner, resulting in wrinkles.
The environmental and your lifestyle factors can accelerate the natural aging process. That’s why you may look older than others, even if you are not.
– Sun Exposure
The greatest factor that causes wrinkles and sagging skin is the frequent exposure to ultraviolet rays. In addition, ultraviolet rays break down the collagen as well as elastin fibers in the dermis layer of your skin, thus contributing to lack of connective tissue support. This reduces the flexibility and strength of your skin and leads to wrinkles. What’s more, the sun could also contribute to sun spots and other discoloration related to aging.
Solution: Wear protective clothing and use natural sunscreen. Even though you should get enough sun exposure on a daily basis to optimize your vitamin D levels, you should avoid overexposure by using natural sunscreen, and wearing protective clothing and wide brimmed hats.
– Repeated Facial Expressions
When you repeat some facial expressions over and over again, like smiling and squinting, a groove typically forms beneath the surface of your skin. Since the flexibility of your skin and the elastin fibers reduce over time, your skin cannot spring back into place.
Solution: You should avoid squinting by wearing reading glasses, sunglasses, or contacts.
Smoking has been found to speed up the aging process, particularly in the skin. Experts claim that smoking has a negative effect on the blood supply to the skin, thus causing it to look dull and old. That’s not all, it can also deplete your body of essential nutrients that play a key role in improving your skin health.
Solution: Quit smoking and avoid spending time around smokers.
