Aging Skin Changes

  1. Our skin is equipped with systems to care for and replace itself. Already after your twentieth year of life this process starts to slow down. The skin loses moisture and less sebum is produced, causing the skin to feel dry. Skin aging is visible through the appearance of wrinkles and creases in the skin. Good sun protection is essential for slowing skin aging.

The skin

  1. The skin contains all kinds of self-care systems. Sebaceous glands keep the skin greasy, the moisture level of the cells is maintained, cells are constantly "repaired" by the body, natural anti-oxidants suppress free radicals and nutrients are broken down for use in the cells. With all these systems, our skin is constantly being renewed. However, this process slows down as we get older.

Start of skin aging

  1. Our skin is already aging before the 25th year of life. You don't notice much of it yet. But the fact is that the cell renewal process is already slowing down. The first signs of skin aging appear around the eyes. It is therefore advisable to use anti-wrinkle cream under the eyes. In later life, the amount of collagen, a protein that ensures that the skin is elastic, decreases.

What can you do to delay skin aging - prevent skin aging?

  1. Use of moisturizing cream Avoid a lot of sun and especially stay out of the sun between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Use a day cream with SPF Do not smoke, because smoking constricts blood vessels, which causes poor blood circulation in the skin. Avoid stress

Effect of stress on the skin

  1. Cell turnover slows down when you are emotionally stressed. Due to a lot of emotional stress, the skin gets extra wrinkles, becomes limp and sagging. During stress, the hormone cortisol is formed, which causes the influx of sugar into the bloodstream. This provides more energy, but collagen and elastin in the skin are affected by it. The result is skin that ages faster.

Why is your skin getting drier?

  1. The older you get, the less well the natural protective layer of the skin still works. This causes the skin to lose moisture and makes the skin feel tight. Furthermore, the sebaceous glands work less and less well, so that the skin also becomes less oily. Drinking a lot is important to maintain the fluid level. Drinks that dehydrate your body should be avoided or used in moderation (eg alcohol).

Wrinkles and the sun

  1. Skin ages fastest through irresponsible tanning. UV-A has a major influence on the formation of wrinkles. It is therefore important to use a day cream that protects against UV-A. Are you really going to sunbathe or are you staying in the sun for a long time, use a sunscreen with a high protection factor, factor 30 or even 50.

Red spots on older skin

  1. More than half of the women develop red, tight skin at some point. The spots are often on the cheeks, nose and chin. Often it is a result of the bursting of superficial capillaries. This can occur as a result of;
