Although we accept the reality that our skin ages over time, the signs of skin aging may already appear around the age of 20. Many of these physical changes are harmless, but they can make us feel uncomfortable and even affect our confidence.
Changing our lifestyle and habits as soon as we detect the first signs of skin aging means that we can enjoy our youthful appearance for longer.
We want to keep your skin healthy and learned about what to look out for to know if your skin is aging early.
You Have Little Bumps On Your Face
These small bumps are called milia, which are small white bumps that usually appear around the nose and cheeks. They can develop when our skin begins to lose its ability to exfoliate.
Overuse of products like steroid creams can make our skin age faster and cause milia.
Your Lips Are Getting Thinner
If you notice your lips starting to thin around your twenties, your skin may be aging faster than normal. The main reason may be the decrease in collagen in the lips.
It can also be caused by dehydration, frequent use of straws, excessive sun exposure, and a lack of vitamin C.
Your Skin Gets Damaged Easily
Our skin may also be aging faster than we think if we have bruises that seem to mysteriously appear out of nowhere.
This is because our skin has become thinner than normal, making it more prone to bruising and slower healing. Moisturizing your skin frequently can help prevent this.
The Texture Of Your Skin Becomes Papery
Prolonged exposure to the sun without sunscreen is one of the main reasons for this to happen. The damage is due to the breakdown of elastin, which allows our skin to stretch and return to its normal position.
Those who use tanning beds frequently are also at a higher risk of this happening.
Your Eyelids Start To Droop
You may need to stop rubbing your eyes more than usual if you notice your eyelids starting to sag.
Also known as ptosis, droopy eyelids can also occur with frequent use of rigid contact lenses or it can be an effect of recent eye surgery.
The Tip Of Your Nose Has Changed In Shape
For most people, a change in the shape of the nose occurs naturally in their forties. Unfortunately, aging skin due to the harmful effects of the sun can cause this to happen sooner.
This can cause most of us distress. Fortunately, modern rhinoplasty procedures are minimally invasive and have consistent, natural results.
Which of these have you noticed on your face? What steps do you take to prevent your skin from aging?
