Aging

Aka fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, skin thinning, skin thickening, fragile skin

Introduction
Aging is a natural and continuous biological process, and skin inevitably changes with age. In the case of beauty industry, the word aging means dermal aging or simply aging skin. Dermal aging is a type of physical aging, it is caused by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors.

Intrinsic factors progress as a consequence of growing older and altered skin cell function results in fine lines, wrinkles, skin thinning, decreased skin ability in wound healing, and an increased susceptibility to wounds that fails to heal. Whereas extrinsic factor is an aging process caused by radical action, stress, ultraviolet rays and other environmental. It is characterized by skin thickening, rough texture, coarse wrinkles and age spots.

1. If you were wondering when is the best time to start using anti-aging products, the answer is simple: now! And that applies whatever age you are.
2. Numerous changes occur in our body as we age, our skin has no exception. The intrinsic changes are the main causes of aging and the a fact of life that we cannot stop:-
  Quality of collagen and elastin declines:-
    - This process is known as elastosis, it weakens the skin support ability and resulting in a loose and sag skin; increased visibility of the pores; fine lines and wrinkles; skin is more susceptible to damage; longer ear lobes and the appearance of sleep line.
  Cell renewal rate decreases:-
    - This leads to cell desquamation (dead skin cell shedding) process slows down, keratinocytes naturally losing moisture content remain on the skin surface longer and resulting in a rough, dull, tired, thin, crepe and wrinkled skin.
  Excessive melanosomes and unevenly distributed melanin:-
    - The activities of melanocytes become abnormal when they are injured or damaged due to the intrinsic factors and extrinsic factors such as UV rays, resulting in hyper-pigmentation and dark spots
  Inactivity of sebaceous glands:-
    - When lesser sebum is being produced to maintain skin natural moisturizing ability, this results in dry, flaky and itchy skin.  For men, this process occurs usually after the age of 80. For women, the gradual decrease occurs after menopause.
  Loss and thinning of subcutaneous fat:-
    - Subcutaneous fat is stored under the hypodermis layer. The loss of fat resulting in skin loosening, sunken eyes, hollowed cheeks, skin losses firmness, looks less plump and less smooth.
  Shrinking bones:-
    - It may become evident after age 60 and cause puckering of the skin around the mouth, dropping of the nasal tip and accentuation of the bony structures in the nose.
  Fragile blood vessel:-
    - Relate to this are bruising (bleeding under the skin), cherry angiomas (small bright red raised bumps) and varicose veins (blue bulging veins).
  Abnormal keratinization by the cellular mitosis:-
    - Cellular mitosis is generally known as the growth and the division of cells. This causes the epidermal structure is disorganized and misshapen, skin looks rough, bumpy and uneven.

 

No one has figured out how to stop the aging attributed to intrinsic factors, but there are ways to prevent the extrinsic factors which hasten the aging process.

1. Photo aging
  Some dermatologists suggest that as much as 90% of skin problems associated with aging are the result of too much sun exposure.
  It breaks down the collagen and elastin, and interferes with its new production.
  It acts as a turbo charge for the production of melanocytes in sun exposed area.
2. Free radical damage
  When cells create energy, they also produce unstable oxygen molecules. These molecules called free radicals. It has a free electron that bond to other molecules in the body causing proteins and other essential molecules not to function as they should.
  It causes damage and dysfunction of healthy cells such as, DNA, protein and lipids. It also weakens skin immune functions.
3. Drinking and smoking
  Alcohol is able to dilate small blood vessels in the skin and cause minor breakage in the veins which can result to the appearance of dark spots or skin pigmentations, these damages can be permanent.
  Nicotine in cigarette depletes the vitamin C level of the body, it also creates trillions of free radicals leading to free radicals damage.
4. Repetitive facial expressions or resting face in the same position
  When the facial muscles are repetitive used, grooves beneath the skin are formed. As we age, the ability of the skin to spring back decreases and the grooves develop into permanent lines and wrinkles.
  Frown lines (lines between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet (lines that stem from the corner of the eye) are common examples of this problem.
5. Unhealthy lifestyle
  Regular exercise helps improve blood circulation and invigorates skin. Lack of exercise causes insufficient supply of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells and idle activities of cell functions.
  Stress and worries increase the production of adrenaline, making your skin look sallow and pale. Chronic stress may also cause muscle to be stiffed and tensed, obstructing the flow of blood to the skin.
  Too little sleep makes the body unable to repair and renew itself.
6. Exposure to extreme weather
  Cold winds and low or heated temperatures can be very drying to skin. Dry skin is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.
1. Proper skin care routine
 

Steps

Remarks

1. Deep cleansing 

Always remember to use a makeup remover to thoroughly remove all makeup

Use a face wash designed for oily skin and pat dry the skin gently without vigorous rubbing. Avoid over drying cleanser with SLS (sodium laurel sulfate)

2. Serum, moisturizer and masque

Start using anti-aging products which help promote collagen and elastin synthesis; fight free radicals, antioxidants; repair damaged skin cells; promote cell renewal rate; and etc. Ingredients you may look for are vitamin C, peptide, retinols, antioxidant properties and others.

3. Exfoliation

Use a grainy exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and promote cell regeneration. 

4. Sun Protection

Choose a broad spectrum sun protection with physical blockers, such as titanium dioxide and zinc dioxide. Look for SPF at least 30 and PA+++ for optimum protection

5. Makeup

Keep makeup as light as possible and use makeup only when absolutely necessary. Always use an oil free foundation or makeup products

2. Promote healthy lifestyle
  Consume foods with antioxidant properties such as green tea, grape, blueberry, prune and carrot which are high in vitamins A, C, E and beta carotene which help terminate the free radical chain reaction. Avoid deep fried, high-carbohydrate and high-sugar foods.
  Drink plenty of water (at least 2 little per day) daily to replenish your skin.
  Maintain a healthy lifestyle such as regular exercise, stress management, quit smoking, control alcohol consumption, and get sufficient sleep!
3. We should have different skin care needs at different stages of our lives:-
  Ages 20 – 35:-
    - 75% of skin damage has already occurred, mostly from over exposure under the sun.
    - At this stage, overactive sebum secretion and cell regeneration begins to decline.
    - You should develop a complete skin care routine to assist in the skin natural functions. Focus on hydration, gentle exfoliation and sun protection.
  Ages 36 – 49:-
    - Skin becomes drier and elasticity begins to decrease.
    - Visible fine lines and pigmentation becomes more pronounced.
    - You should use richer moisturizer, and products that able to boost cell regeneration and synthesis of collagen and elastin.
  Ages 50+:-
    - Your skin now loses its elasticity and becomes thinner, more sensitive and less able to retain moisture.
    - Look for extra rich moisturizers and avoid excessive sun exposure. Use anti-wrinkle products to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
