The secret to healthy looking skin at every age
To cultivate healthy-looking skin, it’s imperative to evolve your skin care routine according to your lifestyle and environment. Adjustments are often necessary to account for a change in climate, health status, or new skin care goals.
what are the signs for aging ?
As early as our 20s, certain lifestyle habits, environmental effects, and constant UV exposure begin compromising skin’s structural integrity. Our cell defences start to weaken in the face of free radicals, and our natural ability to fight off skin damage declines. Cell renewal and turnover rates begin to naturally start to slowdown, which can diminish skin brightness.
In our 30s, collagen (which keeps skin firm) and elastin (which keeps skin bouncing back) begin to degrade, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Cell renewal and turnover continue to decline, leading to uneven skin tone and a dull complexion. Some cells can even become inactive or turn into “zombies,” giving rise to damaging inflammatory toxins that accelerate the appearance of skin aging.
By our 40s, skin appears thinner and our naturally-protective barrier lipids are not as pronounced. Dehydration can be an issue. Depending on hormonal activity, a range of skin conditions may occur, including uneven skin tone or adult acne. More prominent signs of skin aging can also appear, such as large pores and hyperpigmentation.
After our 50s, our barrier lipid layer lessens, leading to less efficient moisture retention and more potential for sensitivity and dehydration. Chronic stress and inflammation both inside and outside of the body delays skin recovery, leading to lasting marks and longer healing times. By now, skin can show prominent fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, rough skin, uneven skin tone, and large pores.
