Facts About Aging Skin

  • Changes in the skin inevitable happen as years pass.
  • Skin is not immune to the law of gravity.
  • Collagen and elastin production slows down a dramatic 65% between the ages of 20 and 80 years old.
  • The thickness of the skin decreases a staggering 6% every 10 years.
  • 90% of the visible signs of aging are caused by sunlight exposure.
  • TWENTIES: wrinkles first appear around the eyes and lips.
  • THIRTIES: skin becomes less resilient as elastin declines, allowing gravity to begin to have its way.
  • FORTIES: as elasticity begins to diminish, skin loses its memory and becomes less able to snap back. Repetitive movements such as frowns and squinting, as well as smoking , form the first permanent wrinkles.
  • FIFTIES: normal aging changes become more apparent; gravity is certainly a factor. Gravity combines with the decrease in collagen and elastin, causing skin and muscle to sag.
  • SIXTIES: hormonal activities have ceased to be a problem, and, as such, the skin is loose and sagging. If the skin has not been protected, lines, wrinkles, and dark spots develop.

Fall Skincare Tip

Your skin can appear dull and dry after a summer spent in the sun, exfoliation can remove the dull outer layer of skin, and unclog pores plugged by regular sunscreen use. But be gentle with exfoliation: A mild scrub, baby washcloth, or exfoliating cleansing towelette will do a fine job. Exfoliate only once or twice a week, and don't get over-aggressive, too-vigorous scrubbing can scratch, tear, and damage skin, compromising the glow that gentle exfoliation gives. Another exfoliation option: Microdermabrasion or glycolic acid peels. These procedures are more effective and quicker at removing the superficial dead layer of skin.

The bottom line: Sunscreen is a must, indoors or out, year-round, every day.
