Aging is a natural process. However, it’s not a welcome process. Even though there hasn’t been any proven technique to reverse aging, there are a few ways to delay the signs of aging appearing on your skin. So let’s talk about the signs of aging, and what you can do to protect your skin and look youthful for a longer duration of time.
1st Stage of Aging
The most earliest signs of aging are the lines on your face – expression lines, laugh lines, frown lines and so on. You might not care about these lines if you’re in your 20’s but ignoring these will build the foundation for more evident signs of aging like wrinkles, etc.
The best way to fight these earliest signs of aging is by making sure you follow a good skin regime – cleanse, tone, moisturize, and sun protection. You can also use the occasional face mask to tighten your pores and deep cleanse your skin.
2nd Stage of Aging
This is when wrinkles show up and you can feel a certain loss of firmness and elasticity in your face and neck area. The wrinkles can be slight, not too much evident if you’re wearing the right colors and the right outfits. But these skin issues are there. You have to take control of the situation before deeper wrinkles show up.
The best way to fight wrinkles, and loss of firmness and elasticity is by using skin products targeted for anti-aging. There are many brands available in the market today, where you can find skin products to deal with your skin problems according to your budget. So invest well and delay these signs of aging.
3rd Stage of Aging
If you’re going through menopause, or are pre/post menopausal, you’re going to come across a lot of skin issues, especially if you don’t have good lifestyle choices like balanced diet and regular exercise.
Menopausal effects resulting in sagging skin, dryness and puffiness are common issues you can encounter. The best way to deal with these is, again, following a good skin regime. Here, you have to use skin products which include elements like AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), Retinol, peptides, collagen, anti-oxidants and of course, Vitamin C. Also, make sure the sun protection is above SPF 50.
And of course, no matter which stage of aging you’re in right now, you have to make sure you follow a good balanced diet, sleeping patterns, and regular exercise to retain the radiance and glow of your skin.
