How Skin Changes with Age

How Skin Changes with Age
Have you ever wondered how skin changes with age? There are some obvious changes that we can all see and this comes from our internal processes.  We all know that ageing is an inevitable process, and as we grow older, our body goes through various changes. One of the most visible signs of ageing is the changes that occur in our skin. Our skin goes through a series of changes with age, from wrinkles and fine lines to age spots and dryness. While these changes are completely normal, it's essential to understand how your skin changes with age and how to care for it. Keep reading to learn more about how your skin changes with age.

1. Decline in Collagen and Elastin Production

Collagen and elastin are two proteins that are responsible for keeping our skin smooth, firm, and supple. As we age, our body produces less collagen and elastin, leading to sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. This also makes skin thinner, more fragile and more prone to damage.

2. Dryness and Itchiness

As we age, our skin produces less oil, leading to dry skin. This is particularly true for women who have gone through menopause, where a sharp decline in estrogen production leads to dryness, itchiness, and other skin issues. To combat this, it's essential to keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water, using high quality face cleansers and good moisturisers, and possibly avoiding hot showers or baths.

3. Age Spots and Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation or age spots are a common sign of ageing and result from overproduction of melanin in a particular area. These spots can appear on any part of the body, but they are most common on the face, neck, arms, and hands. To prevent them from forming, it's essential to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays by using sunscreen and avoiding long exposure to direct sunlight.

4. Loss of Facial Volume

As we age, our facial fat decreases, leading to loss of volume on the face, particularly around the cheek area. This can make the face look saggy and tired. A good way to combat these this is with facial exercises and massage, which our Revitalising Face Oil is great for.

5. Slowed Cell Regeneration

As we age, our skin's ability to regenerate slows down, leading to a dull and lifeless appearance. This also means that scars, acne marks, and other skin blemishes take longer to heal. Exfoliating regularly with our Exfoliating Radiance Tonic will help, as well as using to rest of our anti-ageing face products, and staying hydrated can help improve skin regeneration and give you a brighter, healthier complexion.

While ageing is a natural process that’s impossible to avoid, you can slow down the impact on your skin. By understanding the changes that occur and taking proactive care of your skin, you can maintain a radiant and youthful glow. You can protect your skin from the sun by wearing SPF, adopting a healthy lifestyle, and staying hydrated to care for your skin. It is always best to have a natural skincare routine that adapts to your needs as your skin changes with age. With the right products like Nakin's, like a quality moisturiser, cleansers, and serums, making these changes can keep your skin in good condition and maintain a natural radiance. Take care of your skin always and you'll keep feeling young even as you get older.
