Healthy, Beautiful Skin: Causes of Skin Aging

Your skin is probably the most accurate barometer of what’s going on inside of you. That means that unless all of your systems are “go,” your complexion will not look its very best! The good news is, if you take good care of yourself, physically and emotionally, your skin will look as robust and healthy as you feel.

Nothing stays the same, and your skin is no exception. The face you see in the mirror today will probably be different from the face you see in 10 years. But it doesn’t matter how many candles are on your birthday cake. With simple and sensible health and skin care strategies, you can look great at any age!

What causes skin aging?

Genetics, environmental exposure, hormonal changes and metabolic processes can all contribute to skin aging.

Intrinsic factors

Intrinsic aging or your natural aging process begins appearing in your mid-20s. This can include the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, loss of underlying fat and bones shrinking away from the skin due to bone loss, which causes sagging skin.

Extrinsic factors

Outside influences on aging include sun exposure, facial expressions (turn that frown upside down), gravity, sleeping positions, and smoking.

Lifestyle choices

The day-to-day choices you make can also affect how your skin ages. Smoking and excessive alcohol, lack of exercise, exposure to cold weather, stress, and lack of sleep along with general diet, food, or lifestyle choices can all affect skin aging.
