Although aging is a natural part of life and is expected, it can be somewhat distressing. Even when it’s graceful and you look lovely, the first few signs can still be quite alarming.
Whether it’s drier skin, grey hairs, or crow’s feet (oh, how we dread that), it’s not unusual to worry and fret over how people see you now –particularly when you’re still quite young (in your 30s and 40s).
So, what can you do to delay the visible signs of aging or at the very least, minimize them? In this blog post, we’ll look at a few of the most common signs of aging and recommend proven solutions that will help slow them down or stop them completely.
Whether it’s on your head, eyebrow, or your privates, grey hairs can be unsettling. It’s puzzling to go to bed at night without noticing anything and then wake up to find that there’s a strand or more of grey hairs where they weren’t the previous night.
So, what can you do if you’re suddenly finding grey hairs where they shouldn’t be? Start by examining your lifestyle. It might sound obvious, but many women don’t consider this first. Stress is a huge trigger factor.
Haven’t you noticed that women in positions of power and influence –read: women who do not get adequate sleep at night and deal with a ton of stress- tend to age faster than their contemporaries? If you have been or are dealing with a lot of stress, then you need to slow down and get more rest.
Hyperpigmentation or Dark Spots
Several things can cause dark spots, and they aren’t necessarily age-related. For instance, your face may have dark spots from acne scars, hyperpigmentation, skin tags, hormonal issues, environmental issues, excessive sun exposure, or breakouts.
Whatever the cause of these dark spots, the one thing we can all agree on is that they can adversely affect your looks. While you can try to correct or eliminate the dark spots with natural oils, serums, lotions, or lifestyle changes, this takes time.
And sometimes, you just don’t have the time for natural corrective solutions, which may not work by the way. So, what can you do? Well, how about trying RF microneedling? This non-invasive solution can help fade dark spots and acne scars, and restore your natural complexion faster.
Fine Lines on the Forehead and Around the Mouth
Your face typically loses about one percent of its collagen deposit every year. So, by the time you’re in your mid-30s, you’d have lost about 20-30 percent of the collagen that keeps your face firm and smooth.
This often shows in the form of fine lines on your forehead, around the mouth, the neck, and some other parts of the body. Other factors such as prolonged exposure to the sun, genetics, age, and race can influence this. The easiest way to reduce these fine lines or smooth them out is Botox.
However, if you don’t care about these lines, you can still live with them. Just make sure to up your collagen production –collagen supplements can help increase your natural collagen levels.
