When does your skin begin to show your age?
12 February 2013These days, it seems as though people are holding on to their youth for as long as possible and 60 has become the new 40. But unfortunately, even if people feel young at heart their skin can betray their real age, as a Gwinnett Citizen article recently explained.When people are in their 20s their skin is at its healthiest, as it has a vibrant glow and excellent collagen support to keep it supple. However, when individuals reach their 30s, the first signs of ageing begin to appear and fine lines can emerge around the eyes and forehead. Slight skin discolouration can also occur. These signs of ageing intensify when people reach their 40s as the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid decreases. “Those fine lines deepen, the corners of the mouth may begin to turn down, lip volume decreases, broken capillaries become visible and the jaw line begins to sag,” the newspaper noted. In their 50s and 60s, people will notice these signs become more pronounced as cell renewal continues to decrease, while the skin becomes drier and often sags further when they reach their 70s.
