BASICS OF AGING
NUMBER OF YEARS
From the day we are born, we begin to age. As we enter middle age, our skin naturally begins to lose its elasticity and vibrancy. These signs are visible as fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, lips, and forehead. When we reach our 50’s and 60’s these signs can also be seen on the neck, chest, in front of the ears and the back of our hands. Aging skin gradually also becomes thinner, less able to keep hydrated and can have a sagging appearance.
CAUSES OF AGING
While our genes are encoded with how and when we will start to “look” our age, other factors can play a role. Diet has been shown to have a significant effect on our skin. Getting essential vitamins, nutrients, and hydration is vital to supporting healthy skin.
Environmental factors such as pollution, sun exposure, altitude, and climate can also play into aging our skin. Hormones are chemical messengers that control aging. As we age, these messengers decrease and cause aging effects.
Stress is also a factor. The stress hormone cortisol, can dehydrate, and cause sleep disruptions. Both of which are aging accelerators.
Lifestyle choices such as consuming alcohol, using tobacco and drugs, can also speed-up the aging process. Medications, over-the-counter and prescription medications can contain ingredients that disrupt hydration, sleep, hormones, digestion, and other factors within the body that lead to premature aging.
