Fighting The Aging Process
Aging is inevitable but we can try and make ourselves more comfortable with the idea if we can slow down the process a bit. Aging affects both men and women alike and so neither one should shy away from using products that help to slow this process down.
Collagen and elastin are two important components that link the surface dermis and the deeper dermis of the skin layers. As their numbers decrease, it gives rise for the skin to droop and sag and develop wrinkles. Studies have shown that women begin losing collagen and elastin at around age 32. Whereas men begin losing collagen at around age 40.
Using anti-aging serums and creams in your mid to late twenties will help promote collagen synthesis and elastin synthesis so that when you hit the age of 32 or 40 you’re prepared.
There are other factors of course that play a role in aging. Dehydration, fatigue, allergies, changes in sleep patterns and hormonal changes, just to list a few will all affect the way our skin looks and feels.
The sun! As much as we love to soak up that vitamin D, we need to have proper sun protection on our skin to avoid wrinkles and dark spots developing. Sun damage can cause a decrease in collagen levels as well, even at a younger age.
Blue light! This has been a major disturbance in people’s lives in the last couple decades or so with the rise of screen use. Screens are everywhere now, and most people can’t get away from them. We will spend all day on a computer at work and then come home to a computer, phone, or tablet. Blue light disrupts our melatonin levels, which is essential for our sleep cycles. Therefore if those levels are off, so will our sleep cycles. Poor sleeping habits will lead to skin that looks aged especially around the eyes. Try to reduce screen time a few hours before bed, use a blue light filter on your device or ask your optometrist if it is an option for you to have put in your eye glass lenses.
