The aging process of skin is different for everyone. Aging is defined by genetics and factors we can not prevent, but it is also affected by our lifestyle choices. Your skin is saying a lot about your health: unhealthy eating habits, sleep derivation, stress, little to no time spent outside take their toll on skin. Mature skin shows clear signs of aging: crow’s feet, fine lines and moles appear and increase with time.
Skin start to sag and feel drier and finer, but it doesn’t have to be this way: if you pay attention to your health, spend lot of times in environments rich in oxygen and you pamper our skin with the right natural cosmetic products your skin will thank you the nurturing later by showing a glowing, youthful complexion and even, tighter texture. Turning back the hands of time is impossible, but the aging process can be slowed down.
Wrinkles might not be an indication of time
It’s a misbelief that wrinkles whould be treated after becoming visible. Aging of skin is a natural process that can be slowed down effectively by using natural cosmetic products. According to dermatologists, it’s best to start skin-type specialised anti-aging treatments between the ages of 25-30. An eye cream with a light texture should be a must in your skin care routine, and a tightening day cream or serum should also be considered.
What are the causes of mature skin?
After hitting 40 and 50, most women experience the signs of aging and mature skin: wrinkles, deeper fine lines, dry skin loosing firmness. Mature skin is also affected by external factors, such as air pollution, sun damage, electrosmog, and continued exposure to blue light from cell phones. Lifestyle choices also plays an important role in the degree of the aging process: smoking, alcohol consumption, neglecting skin care and not drinking enough water can also accelerate the aging of skin. After a certain age, collagen and elastin levels in the skin are reduced and thus its water binding capacity decreases. This can be improved by the rights kin care products. After reaching 50 or 60, skin becomes drier and more sensitive even to the changes of the weather or to previously used cosmetic products.
