The lack of nutrient-rich food and imbalance of daily routine, which lacks exercise and a healthy diet acceleratethe aging process so faster. However, aging occurs so early even younger people need a course of treatment as well.
Biologically, aging is fine line development on the areas below the eyes, around the chin, cheek and nose,as well as neck and forehead, tells the aging process in the form of wrinkles and sagging skin.

According to the DNA damage theory of aging, it is a result of the unrepaired accumulation of naturally occurring DNA damages. DNA has a coil-shaped double helix structure in the body that has two parts, i.e., mitochondrial & nuclear DNA. The alteration in the DNA structure, either it is of nuclear or mitochondrial causes the aging process. Aging is of two types, one is apoptosis or cellular senescence that comes indirectly and another one is increasing cellular dysfunction that is a direct effect of DNA alteration.
Wrinkles are fine lines appear on the outer corners of the eyes and forehead as we age and become more noticeable when we laugh. It is also called as crow’s feet and may appear around the age of 30. But, everyone has a different aging process that is determined by genetics and their way of living. The prominent site of wrinkles is the outer corners of the eyes and forehead. At the early stage of aging, the wrinkles and fine lines appear when we change our facial expression while laughing or speaking and known as a dynamic wrinkle. But it becomes static and more prominent as we age further and medically known as a static wrinkle. The static wrinkles are visible regardless of the muscle action. The static wrinkle sites are creasing near the lips, forehead, jawline, and nasolabial folds make the sad mouth appearance.
The loss of volume in the facial appearance can be seen through the lipstick when it starts bleeding as the lips get started to thin over time followed by the sagging facial skin. The loss of facial volume can be seen through the flattened cheek, turkey neck or thin and sagging neck, and sagging skin that is more prominent on the cheek, brows, and nose. The folds that appear between the nose and mouth are known as nasolabial folds that are linked to sagging skin and loss of volume in the facial stature.
As we age our face loses its elasticity & firmness and causes the skin to hang loosely. This is caused by thinning of the outer layer of skin, i.e., epidermis and flattening the area between where epidermis & dermis come together. Due to the effect of losing elasticity & developing wrinkles, the skin becomes drier, fragile, and less radiant, however, one needs anti-aging treatment.
The aging can appear at any age if we do not follow a healthy facial regime and lifestyle, but it is more prominent among the people who are around the age of 50 or 50+.
Skin aging occurs at every layer of the skin and shows the noticeable changes in facial appearance.

These electrons decrease the skin and cell functionality against normal response leads to premature aging. These free radicals cause damaging skin cell structure and break down the essential skin components such as hyaluronic acid, collagen, and functional elastin.
It is inevitable to take care of our skin to avoid premature aging. The 3 key visible signs of skin aging are fine lines or wrinkles, sagging skin or loss of volume, and loss of elasticity or deep wrinkles. It is possible to avoid these visible signs of aging if we follow a healthy lifestyle and proper skin regime.
