FACIAL AGEING

About Facial Ageing :

Ageing is a natural process; However premature Ageing isn't. Facial aging refers to how the appearance of your face changes with age. Facial aging occurs mainly as the result of skin changes and changes in the deeper soft tissues of the face. 

 

Aggravating Factors:

  • Sun

  • Smoking

  • Genetics

  • Stress

  • Lack of Sleep

  • Alcohol

  • Depression

  • A Diet Rich in Carbohydrates and deficient in Proteins

  • A Diet low in Fruits and Vegetables

Presentation :

  • Heavy Eyelids: Eyelid skin is already super-thin, and when it loosens with age, it creates a hooded effect.

  • Age spots: DNA and sun damage are behind dyschromias, or brown splotchy sunspots, which come from overproduction of melanin.

  • Thinning Eyebrows

  • Crepey Skin

  • Uneven Complexion

  • Dark Circles: It's loss of fat volume where the lower eyelid meets the cheek, and thinning skin, which makes increasingly prominent blood vessels under the eyes that much more visible.

  • Double Chin: More fat gathers under the chin, there's less collagen and elastin to keep skin taut, and the neck muscles start to sag, dragging the skin down

  • Hollowed Face: As we age and ligaments loosen, the fatty tissue in our cheekbones tends to drop down, making the cheeks look flat, the smile lines more prominent, and creating jowls along the jaw line.

 

FACIAL AGEING: Tips to Manage

The sun plays a major role in prematurely aging our skin. Other things that we do also can age our skin more quickly than it naturally would. Some tips prevent premature skin ageing are: 

 

  1. Protect your face from the sun every day by seeking shade and using sunscreen that is broad-spectrum, SPF 30 (or higher), and water-resistant. 

  2. If you smoke, stop. Smoking greatly speeds up how quickly skin ages. It causes wrinkles and a dull, sallow complexion. 

  3. 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. 

  4. Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables may help prevent damage that leads to premature skin ageing  Reduce a diet containing lots of sugar or other refined carbohydrates that can accelerate aging. 

  5. Drink less alcohol. It dehydrates the skin, and in time, damages the skin. This can make us look older. 

  6. Exercise can improve circulation and boost the immune system. This, in turn, may give the skin a more-youthful appearance. 

  7. Cleanse your skin gently. Scrubbing your skin clean can irritate your skin. Irritating your skin accelerates skin ageing. 

  8. Wash your face twice a day and after sweating heavily. 

  9. Apply a facial moisturizer every day. Moisturizer traps water in our skin, giving it a more youthful appearance. 

  10. Stop using skin care products that sting or burn. When your skin burns or stings, it means your skin is irritated.
