A “selfie” gives new meaning to” a picture is worth a thousand words”.
We start to notice the sagging looser skin, the tired dull sallow complexion. Then we zoom in closer and obsess over the fine lines , deeper wrinkles ,brown and red spots. These signs start to be visible in our 20’s and become more noticeable with age.
What causes this dreaded process of aging?
There are both intrinsic and extrinsic factors that contribute.
Intrinsic and Extrinsic Factors
Intrinsic factors are our natural aging process which is genetically determined. It causes collagen and elastin breakdown and reduces cellular regeneration. Extrinsic factors consist mainly of sun damage. The distressing news is that we can never stop the aging process of our skin, it starts in our 20s and is ongoing, but the good news is that we sure can slow it down.
