Causes of Aging Skin
What Happens?

Anti-Aging LifestyleAging skin appearance and the causes can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it.

There is no need to hide from the facts. The more you know, the more you can proactively take charge of your skin's aging appearance.

Essentially, as we age our metabolism slows down and our circulation becomes more sluggish.

As a result our skin gets short changed on the nutrients it needs to stay young and vibrant looking.

Skin begins to sag, becomes much drier and begins to lose its elasticity.

As you may have already noticed, aging also significantly slows down the skin's ability to heal itself.

Even small blemishes seem to take longer to go away.

Then there are highly charged oxygen molecules called "free radicals", which make a significant contribution to the deterioration of the skin's condition.

Reducing free radical activity is important to the overall health of your skin.

The presence of free radicals, which typically occur as the result of too much sun, environmental pollutants, a poor diet, smoking and stress accelerates the skin's aging process.  It's one of the major causes of aging skin.

Free radical activity is one of the most significant causes of aging skin. Fortunately, free radicals can be neutralized by antioxidants which are found in many of the components of skin rejuvenation products.

In order to keep free radicals and their adverse effects contained which will prevent premature aging of the skin you will need to adopt a proactive skin care regimen. A good facial skin care regime starts with using sunscreen on a daily basis. Sunscreen is essential, antioxidants just can't do it alone.

And, in case that's not enough, the causes of aging skin is also affected by changes with the gradual decrease in the production of elastin and collagen which adversely affects the skin's plumpness and suppleness.

The skin's firmness deteriorates which contributes to the sagging that begins to occur, allowing those dreaded wrinkles to start to appear, seemingly with wild abandon.

Bear in mind that stress, smoking, sun, insufficient sleep, excessive alcohol, lack of exercise, and poor diet all have a profoundly negative impact on the health and causes of aging skin.

Some of the major characteristics that all these activities have in common is wrinkle acceleration, along with providing an encouraging environment for the birth of brown spots and for the drying and sagging of skin to occur!

Add all these skin damaging factors together which contribute to premature aging skin and a good corrective action plan is in order; a simple yet effective facial rejuvenation skin care treatment regimen.
