Aging

The skin is the largest organ of the human body. During early stages in life, the skin performs at peak conditions. However, as we grow older the skins’ functions slow down and we begin to see signs of aging. There are many factors associated with skin aging which can be broken up into two main categories: intrinsic and extrinsic.

Intrinsic Factors

Heredity- Heredity is a chronological and genetic factor that we have no control over. How we age is encoded into our DNA which is passed down from our family. This is why some people get deep wrinkles while others do not. This does not mean, however, that what we look like as we get older is written in stone. We can control the extrinsic factors and help our skin age gracefully and beautifully.

Extrinsic Factors

Environment- The most destructive environmental factor responsible for rapid aging of our skin is sun damage. Too much exposure to harmful UV rays causes premature wrinkles and skin disease. Studies have shown that UV light damages elastin which causes the skin to sag and wrinkle while also slowing down its ability to repair itself. Limiting sun exposure can help to slow down the aging process.

Another environmental factor that is harder to control is pollution. When we are exposed to chemicals in the food we eat and chemicals in the air such as car exhaust and cigarette smoke, free radicals are formed. This deprives our skin of vital oxygen and interferes with normal blood flow which causes our skin to age more rapidly.

Life style- Nutrition also plays an important part is skin aging. Everything that we take into our body affects skin wellness. This is why it is essential to drink plenty of water, as sufficient water intake and a balanced diet containing vitamins and antioxidants, enables the liver to remove toxins and waste from within the body.
