The Causes of Ageing Appearance And Treatments to Alleviate It

  • 23, Dec 2021

As you age, your skin becomes sensitive and highly affected by several forces: sun, changes in temperature, and bad habits. While these factors speed up your ageing appearance, there are steps that you can do to help your skin stay young and fresh. To do so, it’s essential to know the possible causes of skin ageing, and the treatments you can try to relieve it!

 

The speed of how your skin changes appearance depends on several factors: sun, heredity, lifestyle, the food you eat, and other personal habits. For a quick fix, some people opt to get saggy face treatments in Singapore. Read on to know the causes of ageing appearance and the treatments to alleviate it!

 

Sun

 

  

Being exposed to sunlight is probably the most significant cause of your ageing appearance. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet light affects certain fibers in the skin called elastin. The breakdown of these fibers causes your skin to stretch, sag, and lose its ability to snap back after stretching.

 

Being exposed to sunlight also bruises and tears your skin more quickly and takes longer to heal. However, it won’t show right away, so it will come up later in life, while sun damage may not show when you’re young.

 

While nothing can completely reverse the effects of sun damage, the skin sometimes repairs itself. Lasers help undo some of the damage, so it’s never too late to start protecting yourself from sun exposure and skin cancer.

 

However, you can delay changes associated with ageing by staying out of the sun, wearing a hat, covering up, and using sunscreen. Try our Aikne Screen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays while covering up the blemishes on your skin to keep it glowing all day long!

 

Sleep position

 

 

 

Sleep creases result from how your head is positioned on the pillow and may start being more visible when the skin begins losing its elasticity. These creases are commonly found on the side of the forehead, starting above the eyebrows to the hairline near the temples and on the middle of the cheeks.

 

To try and remedy this, try sleeping on your back to improve your sleep creases or prevent them from becoming worse.

 

Dry skin

 

Having dry skin and itching is expected as you get older. Research shows that about 85% of older people develop “winter itch,” due to dry, overheated indoor air. Plus, the loss of oil glands that show up as you age may also worsen dry skin.

 

Anything further drying of the skin makes the problem even worse. If you feel like your skin is dehydrated and itchy, immediately see a doctor as this condition affects your sleep, causes irritability, or is a symptom of a severe disease.

 

To alleviate your dry skin, you can make changes through your diet and lifestyle, such as drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day. As for skincare, you could try to add a serum and use a heavy moisturiser at night. Include an exfoliant into your cleansing routines such as the Auras Peel can also help with flakiness and brighten your skin!

 

While the terms are interchanged most of the time, take note that there is a difference between dry and dehydrated skin.

Smoking

 

People who smoke are more at risk of having more wrinkles than nonsmokers with the same age, complexion, and history of sun exposure. This is because smoking brings out unsteady free radicals, attacking healthy cells, which leads to premature wrinkles.

 

Although it’s unclear which chemical in the cigarette causes the free radicals, people believe that it also interferes with the normal blood flow in the skin.

 

Final thoughts

 

Your skin changes with age, and that’s caused by exposure to the sun, doing personal habits such as smoking and diet, and the inevitable changes with normal ageing. As you get older, you may notice your skin isn’t as smooth as it once was.
