What kind of skin? Warning signs of "aging"

      Age is just a number, but the gradual wear and tear of our bodies cannot be denied. So, what are the signs that indicate we are beginning to age or entering old age? Besides checking our age based on songs we've heard, let's take a look at warning signs on our skin that suggest we may be getting older. It's better to pay attention to them and take care of ourselves promptly before they become more pronounced.

Warning Signs of Aging for Your "Skin" :
  • Crow's Feet : Crow's feet can result from various factors such as stress, environmental pollution, and the reduction of collagen production beneath our skin.
  • Raised Skin : Raised skin occurs when melanin granules work abnormally, causing the affected area to become darker and potentially larger as you age. It is often said that "the older you get, the more noticeable it becomes." As we age, our bodies produce less collagen.
  • Unfading Scars : Scars are remnants from healed wounds. Scars can heal slowly or quickly, depending on the size of the wound and, to some extent, your age. The older you are, the slower your skin's healing and repair processes become.
  • Uneven Skin Tone : An uneven skin tone looks dull and may indicate abnormal liver function, affecting the body's detoxification process. It's another sign of deterioration in your body.
  • Sagging Neck : Due to the thinner skin on the neck, if it lacks moisture and has a slower collagen production process, it can lead to wrinkles, sagging, and a loose neck appearance.
  • Dry, Wrinkled Hands : The skin on our hands is the most reflective of our age and skin condition because it is the organ that we touch most frequently. Therefore, it's important to take care of them, avoid touching pollutants, or engaging in activities that could harm our hands.
How to Care for Your Skin to Delay Aging :
  • Get enough sleep, around 8 hours a day, and try to sleep at a regular time to allow your body to repair and keep your skin fresh, not tired, with no dark circles or bags under your eyes.
  • Apply sunscreen regularly to protect your skin from UV radiation and prevent wrinkles and premature aging.
  • Drink 8 glasses of water per day to keep your skin firm and radiant. If you want to boost your antioxidant levels, you can also add freshly squeezed lemon juice to your water to help delay aging and reduce wrinkles.
  • Take care of the skin around your eyes, where wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles tend to appear more easily as you age. Besides using eye creams, you can also use a cold spoon to apply under your eyes in the morning and evening, which can help reduce puffiness.
  • Exercise your facial muscles with simple exercises like forming the letters A, E, I, O, U with your mouth. This muscle exercise can help lift and tighten your face, giving it a more youthful appearance.
  • Massage your face in a circular motion from your chin to your temples, helping reduce water retention and improving blood circulation. Regularly doing this can help narrow your face and make it look younger.
  • Try facial yoga exercises to help lift and tighten your face, delaying wrinkles and making your face look more youthful.

      If you start experiencing these symptoms, it indicates that your body is "aging." However, there's no need to worry because nowadays, we can use medical technology to slow down these signs of aging, making us feel young and vibrant.
