The Ageing Process
Ageing is a part of life. It is inevitable for our skin to go through some changes as we age, but if we know how to care for and love our skin, we can embrace the signs of ageing more gracefully as time goes by.
To do that, let’s begin with understanding the skin ageing process. As we age, our cell regeneration rate drops and our skin starts to produce less collagen and elastin. That leads to the structure of our skin being compromised and signs of ageing like wrinkles, sagginess, dullness, and uneven skin tone occurring.
However, with the right skincare product, you can improve your skin’s condition and even protect it from visible signs of ageing. As long as you pick one that’s right for your skin type and can promote collagen production as well as cell regeneration, your skin can stay youthful and radiant for longer.
Age-Induced Skin Sensitivity
As we grow older, signs of ageing not only increase, but also become more noticeable. This is because our skin’s surface becomes thinner, rougher, and dryer with time, due to a slower cell regeneration rate and reduction in lipid production.
With these two factors at play, our skin takes longer to bounce back. When there are external triggers like pollution, UV rays, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and irregular sleep, our skin becomes less resilient and more sensitive.
Let’s find out more about how these factors contribute to increased skin sensitivity.
Exposure to UV rays is one of the major causes of premature ageing. When your skin takes longer to restore itself, UV exposure can worsen it by causing inflammation, sunburn, roughness, and dryness – all of which are classic signs of skin irritation. As such, it is recommended to always go out with sunscreen applied.
Nicotine, tar, and other toxic chemicals in cigarettes will affect the performance of skin cells. When said skin cells are unhealthy, they cannot function efficiently to regenerate and restore your skin. Your skin’s barrier will also be compromised, leaving skin vulnerable to more external aggressors.
The lifestyle we practice is always reflected in our skin. Bad habits such as late nights, an unhealthy diet, and lack of water consumption lead to poorer skin health. Your skin will start looking duller and more dehydrated, eventually becoming more sensitive.
Stress leads to the interruption of one’s sleep cycle and can also cause hormones to go haywire, all of which will reflect on our skin. Tell-tale signs are duller skin, dark eye circles, and breakouts. You may also notice your skin becoming more easily inflamed as a physical manifestation of any mental stress you may have.
