Body Language: How Old Is Your Skin?

There comes a point in everyone’s life where we don’t quite embrace age (or rather aging) with the same verve and enthusiasm as we use to. In fact, we do everything in our power to conceal the years. But besides beautifying our face, the numbers can often speak (loudly) for themselves in ways you never even considered:

Neck, hands, and shoulder speak: Just like your face, these areas are often most exposed to the sun, drying air and pollution, taking just as much “abuse” and needing just as much TLC. Make sure they are moisturized daily (in fact a few times a day) and don’t forget to exfoliate to protect from the sun’s UV rays.

Hairy, Scary Habits: Not only does smoking cause wrinkles and potential life-threatening diseases and disorders, but it can make you age more quickly or give away your (real) age, by accelerating the graying of hair.
Get your move on: a sedentary lifestyle will also age you before your time. Not only do you risk a mind that slows down and some extra, unwanted pounds, but also the possibility of prematurely aging skin. People who exercise boost capillary functioning and collagen production decreasing the typically signs of (premature) aging, including unsightly cellulite.

Revamp your routine: As we age, our skin has different wants and needs. And, women over 30 or 35 hedging slowly but surely toward menopause or peri-menopause may also be heading toward changes in their skin. A decrease in estrogen levels may mean drier skin, more wrinkles, loss of elasticity and less collagen production, making skin looser. Experts suggest consulting your doctor or dermatologist.
