Reverse Aging – Introduction
Reverse Ageing or slowing down the ageing process, A wise woman once said, ‘I don’t get old, I just get better!’. It is said that time makes things better. But the only thing that deteriorates with time is our quality of the skin. The process of aging is something that is natural and is avoidable. With time you will see changes in the way you look. Changes such as dark spots, wrinkles, dryness, and so on. Unknowingly we do several things that speed up this aging process. Instead of slowing it down we just give it a push. Moreover sometimes with a wish to stop it completely, we opt for ways which might completely lead to the damage of our skin.
Today I’ll be talking about this aging process and reverse aging of the skin. How to slow this process down with home remedies and how to look younger than ever. But before beginning, this article would also like to say that, Instead of hating this phase, try to embrace it.
🌑WHAT IS AGING AND WHAT ARE THE EARLY SIGNS OF AGING?
When we age, the topmost layer of the skin that is the epidermis begins to get thinner. This makes our skin look pale and makes the blood vessels below our skin visible. These blood vessels also become fragile, which can cause easy bruising or bleeding. During this time the fat deposited on our body also starts to thin out hence making it more fragile. Hence the changing weather conditions and the harmful UV rays start reaching the inner surface and hence causing damage.
Fine lines and aging are the earliest signs of aging. These lines began to appear during our 20s and began to deepen during the 30s. These lines are caused due to our facial expressions, like when we laugh or when we frown.
Age spots also start to appear with photo-aging. Flat, brown spots are seen on the back of the hands, the face, arms, and feet. Mostly these spots are visible on people with lighter skin. Dry skin apart from dull and itchy skin is also a sign of skin aging.
🌑WAYS TO SLOW DOWN THIS AGING PROCESS.
As I mentioned above, that knowingly or unknowingly we do certain things that result in speeding up this process.
