It is natural for your skin to lose its luster and firmness as you age. However, for some the onset of skin aging may be quicker than the others, primarily due to heredity. But there are several other factors as well that determine a person’s predisposition to early aging. These include your diet, lifestyle, stress level and environmental factors. While you cannot change your genes, you can certainly slow down the aging process by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
As you age, our skin’s ability to produce collagen – an essential protein responsible for keeping skin taut and supple – decreases. Reduced collagen and elastin levels result in skin thinning, which ultimately causes it to lose its elasticity and sag down. This results in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Facial creases are most prominent on the forehead, around the eyes, upper lip area and cheeks. Natural signs of wrinkling generally start to show between the ages of 35 to 40. But in case of early aging facial wrinkles and creases may develop a lot earlier, as early as in late 20s.
Causes of premature aging:
Numerous causes contribute to premature aging of skin. These include:
- Excessive Exposure to the sun
- A hectic and stressful lifestyle
- Crash diet or unhealthy eating habits
- Genetic predisposition
- Smoking and drinking
Smoking is particularly injurious to the skin. Smoke of cigarettes contains nicotine, which constricts blood vessels, affecting blood supply to the outer layers of the skin. It also affects hemoglobin’s ability to carry oxygen different parts of the body. This not only affects the out layers of the skin but also causes damage to the underlying collagen.
