Certain contributors to aging skin, like hormonal changes and genetics, are uncontrollable. This type of aging is referred to as “intrinsic.” But there are also preventable extrinsic factors. Visible signs of aging occur when our bodies begin producing less collagen and elastin, resulting in wrinkles and sagging. In addition, dead skin cells take longer to shed and cell turnover slows, making skin drier. All skin types will inevitably age, but at different rates of speed and with different symptoms.
Three major causes are:
Sun Exposure: Most premature aging of the skin can be attributed to repeated sun exposure, which can cause skin to lose the ability to repair itself. Unprotected sun exposure takes its toll on skin with symptoms like wrinkles, age spots, spider veins, hyperpigmentation, and blotchiness.
Pollution and Oxygen Free Radicals:
Smoking :Smoking speeds up skin’s aging process by reducing blood supply to the skin and polluting the bloodstream with toxins. Reduced blood supply means the availability of oxygen is reduced, which results in unhealthy-looking skin. The term “smoker’s face” was added to the medical dictionary in 1985 – some distinctive characteristics of this skin condition are prominent lines and wrinkles, and a leathery texture.
