Have you ever wondered if you look older than you are? Quite a few people suffer from this problem. The causes of premature aging of the body can be very different - from genetics to lifestyle or some chronic diseases.
What are the signs of faster aging of the face and body?
You have pigment spots
Pigment spots can appear in different places, mostly on the face and hands. Some call them "age spots". They are darker non-relief spots that usually become noticeable after the age of 30. They are caused by the harmful effects of UV rays, but hormonal balance also plays a role in their appearance.
Your skin is very dry
Dry skin is a sign of dehydration and poor skin maintenance, but it can also be a sign of premature aging. The sun, smoking, and even stress are also contributing factors to hydration imbalances.
Crow's feet wrinkles
Wrinkles on the face appear at some point and this appearance is inevitable. It is bad when they start to be noticed too early. Crow's feet wrinkles are the most common problem. They form in the outer corner of the eyelids and are most noticeable when smiling or mimicking. They are a sign of the breakdown of collagen in the eye area, as well as difficulties in the body in terms of the synthesis of this important protein. As we age, this synthesis weakens more and more noticeably.
Brown spots not caused by the sun
You may think you are protecting your skin from the sun's rays, but that's not enough. Some other types of radiation that are invisible to the eye, such as that from mobile devices, also damage and age the skin. This radiation may be the cause of the brown spots of unknown origin that have appeared on your skin.
Your skin has lost its glow
Face skin cells divide slowly. Their renewal processes are not as fast and this can cause the skin on the face to sag, making you look as if you have lost your glow. This also applies to the neckline, the skin of the hands, the back.
Your cheekbones are drooping
Another sign of premature aging is the sagging of the cheekbones on the face. It occurs again "thanks" to a decrease in the amount of collagen in the skin. Youthful contours gradually begin to be lost. Fortunately, there is a way to counteract this process and that is facial exercises that tighten the facial muscles. Like the muscles of the body that can be well trained and toned, those of the face are also subject to proper training.
Rough heels are a big problem that can be very difficult to solve. Sometimes their skin remains too hard and rough despite the efforts you put in and aging can be one of the possible reasons for this.
Your lips are thinning
The unpleasant problem of thinning lips is due to the loss of collagen in them, which makes them juicy and plump.
