The early signs of aging are found in the skin. The skin produces only lipids (fats) and proteins as its age, so the signs of aging can be seen on the outer layer. From then, it is possible to observe the progress of the skin and get an idea of the effects of the aging process.
The skin ages more quickly than other parts of the body because of the way it works. As time goes by, it loses its ability to produce collagen and elastin and the skin loses its elasticity and firmness.
The collagen and elastin may increase in thickness and firmness but they do not stay there. They start to break down and start to absorb into the body. The skin is the largest organ in the body and it absorbs the most so when it is still elastic it retains its collagen and elastin better.
The skin loses its elasticity and firmness as it ages so wrinkles may appear on the surface of the skin. Wrinkles are also an indication of old age and the facial muscles become weaker so there may be changes in the skin structure as well.
In the eye area, the amount of collagen and elastin decreases as a person gets older. The eye area is not involved in the day to day activities so the firming of the skin does not happen over a period of time.
Skincare professionals recommend that the skin in the eye area and the rest of the face need extra attention when you are using skincare products. The products should be light, moisturizing, and enriched with vitamins C and E. You can use products that contain vitamins C and E for hydrating the skin.
Some common signs of aging skin care include loss of elasticity in the skin, roughness, lines, and wrinkles. Another indicator of aging skin is the dryness of the skin.
There is less water content in the skin during the aging process and the skin dries out. When you have dry skin you will see the lines and wrinkles on the skin even if the lines and wrinkles are present in the other areas of the skin as well.
The external appearance of the skin changes as a person gets older. The facial contours will shift and change depending on the surrounding skin.
There are some advanced cosmetics which can improve the appearance of the skin and reverse some of the signs of aging. You can get soft, smooth, and supple skin.
Cosmeceuticals use organic and all-natural ingredients for skincare that do not have any side effects. It is essential that you consult your skincare professional before using any cosmetics.
