Science has developed a lot, but one thing that it still has not been able to do is stop the aging process. But with proper skin care and some natural home remedies, you can slow the aging process to a great extent.
Aging occurs in every layer of the skin. It is the changes within these layers that show on the skin’s surface as signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.
Youthful-looking skin is due in large part to the skin’s elasticity, which keeps it tight and smooth. With age, this elasticity diminishes as the body’s production of collagen and elastin reduces. This is a primary cause of natural skin aging.
A combination of other factors – both internal and external – contribute to skin damage and aging.
Two of the main internal causes of skin aging are poor blood circulation and genetics. Key external factors affecting the speed at which the skin ages are exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolent (UV) rays, pollution, smoking, excessive drinking, poor nutrition and an improper skin care routine.
Time will surely leave its imprint on your skin. But you can take steps to keep your skin looking younger for longer and prevent premature aging.
