Youthful skin empowers life to strengthen confidence and influence your Life expectancy

  • Are you looking older than your age?
  • Are you feeling self-conscious due to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin?
  • Are you feeling less confident due to developing signs of aging?
  • Do you want to enjoy your youthfulness?

If any of the above points are your concern, then this article is for you. The anti-aging concern is not just centered among older-aged person, but also influences mid-twenties and thirties to think upon it.

Nowadays, we are living in such an environment where pollution is common and a faster life doesn’t allow us to take care of ourselves. 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. Wrinkles that made you turned off is a result of losing skin texture & tone due to both extrinsic and intrinsic causes.

Aging is aggravated by the factors that include UV-rays, pollution, stress, an unhealthy lifestyle, i.e., lack of nutrient-rich diet and exercise, smoking, and irregularity in face exfoliation.

Aging needs care, treatment, and precaution to protect skin from unwanted changes and that is why anti-aging term comes that has greater cosmetic attention among the people.

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.

Aging is seen through the following changes on the Face are as follows:

  • Wrinkles

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.

  • Loss of Volume

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.

  • Loss of elasticity & Deep Wrinkles

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.

Here we will describe every layer of skin in detail and how does it affect by the aging process are as follows:

  1. Epidermal Layers: This is the outer layer of the skin, which contains skin cells, pigment, and proteins that show the aging effect first. Since this layer directly influences by sun exposure or UV-rays causes the skin becomes more rough, dry, and fragile. The loss of hyaluronic acid and imbalance of melanin or extra melanin production makes facial skin tanned and fade. The decrease in sebum production results in skin roughness and dryness.
  2. Dermal layers: At the age of 25 the collagen production in the body gets started to decreases by 1% every year leads to dermal/skin tissue disorganization. On the other hand, the decline of functional elastin and this factor together leads to the aging process faster and more prominent. Therefore, fine lines and wrinkles appear and make you older than your actual age. Reduced microcirculation causes less efficient delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the skin ends up with less youthful looks.
  3. Subdermal layers: This is the deeper layer and final layer of the skin that shows the skin aging with sagging and volume loss of cheeks results in hollow temples and cheeks as well. The reduction in the number and size of lipid-storing cells in the adipose layer causes the aging process faster and more prominent.

Our biological aging is determined by age that has different patterns and processes with every individual. As we age, cell decreases their functionality and structural changes in the facial skin are noticeable results in dryness, roughness, fragile skin, wrinkles, loss of volume, hollow cheeks & temple, and sagging of facial skin.

The internal factors of aging are categorized into the following 3 categories:

  1. Hormonal imbalance: Decrease in the estrogen hormone (Instruction giving hormone) in the body leads to skin aging with the more fragile, dry and rough skin. This imbalance slower the cell messaging and the lack of nutrient and oxygen supply to the skin tissues causes the skin to be fade, dull, and less radiant. However, it also affects the proper blood supply causes the skin to become older. At a younger age, the connection between different layers of skin is very strong that allows the skin to be moisturized as the nutrient and oxygen supply to the facial tissues are very prominent.
  2. Genetics: This is the genetic makeup of our body that determines how we look or what type of anatomical or facial structure we have. It has a great role in the aging process because every individual has a different tendency to respond against the immune system or cell’s functionality of the body.

The phototype or skin type determines our aging process as someone ages faster and someone has less tendency towards the aging process.

A quick look on the prototype of the facial skin as follows:

  • Fair or phototype I – II and/or sensitive skin: It is more prone to wrinkles at an earlier age than darker phototype of V or VI.
  • Phototype III: It is prone to uneven skin tone, but wrinkles appear at a later age than phototype I or II type of skin.

The external factors that accelerate the aging process are as follows:

Before describing the external factor of aging, it is important to understand the oxidative stress that is triggered by various external factors as well as a bad lifestyle impeded the same. Oxidative Stress is a process of aging that occurs when skin loses their ability to reduce the effect of free radicals consists of a single unpaired electron in an outer shell. 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.

Oxidative stress is accelerated by the following External factors:

  • Sun: The harmful Ultraviolet rays of the sun cause photoaging that appears on the upper layer of the skin with red and black spots. This triggers oxidative stress and affects the anti-oxidant process of facial skin.
  • Pollution: Dust particles in the air, smoke, and harmful gases present in vehicles and atmosphere triggers the oxidative stress and reduce the skin’s ability to respond against the harmful effect of free radicals results in damaging cell functionality and premature aging occurs.
  • Smoking: Smoking has a key role in inducing the aging process because nicotine present in the cigarette can upsurge the numbers of free radicals and also intensify the sun exposure causes acceleration of oxidative stress.
  • Nutrition:It is very important to incorporate antioxidant-rich food in our diet as it is a good inhibitor of free radicals in our body. These antioxidant molecules can neutralize the free radicals that cause the damage to cells and aging faster. However, green veggies, fruits, and nuts must be in our diet chart.
  • Inappropriate skincare: Inappropriate skincare is also a responsible factor behind accelerating the oxidative stress because exfoliation is needed frequently to make skin clear, glowing, and rejuvenating. Effective sun protection is inevitable to avoid premature aging.

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. A holistic approach to skincare and healthy lifestyle prevents premature aging that is needed to be followed if you wish to have a youthful facial skin.

What are the early signs of aging?

  • Fine lines near the lips
  • Fine lines or crow feet near the eyes
  • Fine lines on the forehead

At an advanced stage, however, the following signs can be seen:

  • Sagging skin
  • Permanent creasing near the lips
  • Prominent wrinkles on the forehead

A quick listing of following the healthy skincare regime as follows:

  • Incorporate antioxidant foods in our diets such as green and leafy vegetables, nuts, and fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, dark chocolate, etc.
  • Regular exercise and walk influences blood circulation and maintains hormonal balance
  • Quit smoking
  • A sound sleep prevents premature aging
  • Use a gentle face wash
  • Wear sunscreen of 30 or 50+ SPF
  • A basic skincare routine should be followed by skin exfoliation with scrubbing, cleaning, toning, and moisturizing.
  • Regular cleaning of the skin removes chemicals & dust particles from the skin layer that causes oxidative stress.
  • Take Green Tea: Green tea is a rich source of antioxidants that battle with wrinkles and increases cell turnover.
  • Banana Mask: The mixture of ripe banana and honey acts as a great antiaging mask that tightened your skin if you use it frequently.
  • Apply olive oil: Olive oil contains polyphenols & oleic acid and powered with monounsaturated fats and vitamin B & D helps in improving the signs of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera is powered with beta-carotene, Vitamin C & E that prevents us from the signs of early signs of aging and moisturized the skin effectively.

It lifts and tightens loose skin over time, without any downtime.  Only one session of ultherapy is enough for most of the patients, but the further sessions can be taken, which depends on the need for skin laxity and the body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen-building process.
