The 7 Early Signs of Aging Skin

in Skin

When a person begins to age, the very first thing that shows their real age is their skin. As a person ages, their skin begins to change in a variety of different ways. These different aging signs are preventable and even treatable in some cases, so knowing what signs to look for can help you to better determine how to get rid of them entirely or prevent them from getting worse. 

Fine Lines

One of the very first signs of aging skin would be fine lines. These small lines can develop around the eyes and mouth, making a person look older than they actually are. The great thing is that fine lines are very easy to treat and prevent. A great quality beauty cream, when used regularly, can prevent and even diminish the look of this sign of aging. 

Deep Wrinkles

Deeper-set wrinkles happen with time and can make a person look years older than they truly are. Deep wrinkles can form from skin dryness, the way that a person sleeps at night and bad habits such as smoking and drinking too much alcohol. Deep wrinkles can be diminished with cream skincare products, but they are best left to a skincare clinic that can do more invasive treatments on them. 

Wrinkled Neck

Often referred to as a turkey neck, the neck area can show a lot of signs of aging just because it begins to sag and wrinkle over time. There are many exercises and skin creams that can be used to prevent and even get rid of this aging issue. Sudden and extreme weight loss can also cause the dreaded turkey neck, but this is just because of excess skin that is hanging down from this area after losing weight. 

Sagging Skin on the Face

When a person begins to age, their face may begin to sag. This is especially true for the cheek areas. These are often referred to as jowls and a lot of people experience this as they begin to get older. Facial exercises and skincare treatments can prevent and even reverse skin sagging, so this is something to consider if this is a problem that you happen to be dealing with yourself. 

Heavy and Droopy Eyelids

The eyes often tell a person's age better than any other area of the face and body. Both fine lines and deep wrinkles on the sides of the eyes can be signs of aging, but droopy and heavy-looking lids can also show a person's true age. As you age, the lids of the eyes can become heavier and may begin to droop and sag with time. Creams and treatments can help to prevent and reverse this skin issue. 

Skin Discoloration

Brown spots and hyper-pigmentation are also signs of aging skin. These spots are often the result of too much sun exposure or acne scars that have been left behind for years and years. These brown spots and skin discolorations are common on the face, neck and hand areas, so using a good quality cream is essential for getting rid of this problem and preventing it altogether. 

Lip Wrinkling

Just like the eyes, the lips can also age quicker than most other areas of the body. Lips that are aging tend to be dry, cracked and have a lot of fine lines and wrinkles around them. If a person smokes, this increases the fine lines and dryness that the lips experience. Again, good quality creams and lip treatments can help with this type of problem that you're having.
