Seven Signs of Aging
- Hyperpigmentation – Dark spots, sun spots, liver spots, lentigos or discolouration of the skin are all forms of hyperpigmentation.
- Sagging Skin – Loss of elasticity caused by the reduction of collagen and elastin fibres
- Lines & Wrinkles –Natural part of the skins ageing process, but, in young individuals, this is a sign of premature ageing and could be caused by a variety of factors including prolonged sun exposure and smoking.
- Dry Skin –As the skin ages, Sebaceous glands produce less oil which is important for skin health and rejuvenation. This can make it harder to keep the skin moist, resulting in dryness and itchiness
- Open Pores – As the skin ages, the skin around each pore is not as collagen-rich or firm, resulting in pores becoming clogged or enlarged.
- Dull Skin – Due to the skin cell turnover rate reducing the skin can appear duller.
- Puffy Eyes – Eye tissue and supporting muscles around your eyelids begin to weaken. The fat that helps support the eyes can then move to the lower lids, causing them to appear puffy.
Changes in the connective tissue reduce the skin’s strength and elasticity. This is more noticeable in sun-exposed areas (solar elastosis). Elastosis produces the leathery, weather-beaten appearance common to people who spend a large amount of time outdoors.
As you age, the subcutaneous fat reduces, which:
- Provides less insulation and padding.
- Increases your risk of skin injury by 4 times
- Reduces your ability to maintain body temperature
- The Epithelial layer reduces in thickness
- Cellular turnover reduces greatly
Growths on the skin such as skin tags, warts, rough patches (keratoses), and other blemishes are more common as the skin ages.
