What could be more frightening than the thought of aging? One day, you’ll look up in the mirror, and signs of aging (wrinkles and fine lines) will be etched on your face. Merely this sentiment gives us shivers down our backs. But there is a chance you can delay the process of aging even though we can not put a stop to it. It gives us hope to feel young and beautiful for a more extended period. 

Man is always trying to find ways to reverse aging, to feel young again, or live a little longer, but unfortunately, flipping time isn’t a man’s job. But we can certainly live in the moment and try simple ways to stay young and healthy. To find a solution, we always need to look into the reasons for its cause.

CAUSES

Here are some of the most common causes of aging.

COLLAGEN REDUCTION

As our skin ages, the amount of collagen starts reducing. It is the main element in the skin responsible for its strength and elasticity. Apart from aging naturally, some other environmental factors like pollutants can cause it to break down. It results in thinning of the skin, making it appear saggy with time.

GLYCATION

If you love eating sugary food, we hate to break it to you that it is the sly villain having a huge hand in causing one’s skin to age. It directly attacks the proteins, collagen and elastin, which are responsible to keep our skin hydrated and plump. The renegade sugars react with them which causes our skin to look saggy, less supple, and creases start appearing.

PHOTODAMAGE

One thing we can not resist is going out on a sunny day and it is the biggest culprit taking part in the aging of the skin. UV rays when struck the skin, cause damage to the skin’s DNA. Along with that, they harm the elastin fiber, making the skin look saggy and losing its ability to bounce back.

PREVENTION

Once you are aware of the causes, it becomes easier to find ways to prevent them. Here are some of the key points that will help you stay young for a long time and prevent premature aging.

  • As aging is mostly affected by external causes, it is best to find a way to stop the extrinsic factors from penetrating the skin. This is where skincare products come to the rescue! Never go out without having a protective layer of SPF. Along with that develop a skincare routine that will help your skin stay in good shape.
  • Eating healthier can bring a drastic change in the appearance of your skin. If you start avoiding junk and sugary foods and start intaking a diet rich in nutrients, your skin will feel like never before. It is because the skin is the reflection of what’s happening inside your body. If you put clean and healthy food inside, it will have a reflection on the outside as well.
  • Hydration is another point to keep in mind because if you are dehydrated from the inside, your skin will definitely show the effects. It will appear dull, and if stays dehydrated for a longer time, it can cause the skin to form wrinkles.
