Do You Look Older Than You are?

Look Older

Many girls and women who approach the Cosmetic Dermatologists and Skin Specialists do not want their skin to reveal their age. In fact, they are worried that they look older than they are and almost everyone wants to be told “Really. You look younger!”

Factors That Make One Age Faster

According to a leading cosmetic dermatologist at Clinic Dermatech’s state of the art clinics, a person’s age is perceived by the extent of external signs of aging that one shows. These are wrinkling of the skin on the face and the hands, the greying of hair, the sagging of neck muscles, and the like.

If you have any of the signs of aging, even if it is that one grey hair peeking from your hairdo or that hint of a wrinkle around the eyes, you will be considered older, even if you are younger.

Improper Nutrition Leads to Wrinkles

If you want to look young, you have to start young. Improper hydration and lack of moisturization make the skin dry. The skin too loses its elasticity and looks wrinkled, adding years to one’s age. Early wrinkles or sagging skin can also be due to exposure to hot water.

Sun and Stress are Bad for You

Early wrinkling can also be caused by exposure to strong sunlight and mental stress. Constant and frequent frowning can often lead to early wrinkling around the eyes and the mouth as well as on the forehead. Restless nights leading to inadequate sleep also results in the dark under eye circles as well as crinkles beneath the eyes.

Colors and Chemicals Grey Your Hair

Exposure to chemicals like hydrogen peroxide and others present in hair colors, hair dyes, gels and the like can lead to premature greying of hair. Washing hair with hot water can make the hair brittle and dry. It can deplete the melanin from the hair causing premature greying.

Exercise Helps the Skin

A gaunt and withered face due to dieting as well as rapid loss of weight can also one look older than the numerical age. The lack of exercise can cause the muscles to lose their tone and become saggy, leading to one looking aged. At times, being overweight can also make one look older.

Other Factors

The indiscriminate consumption of alcohol as well as excessive smoking can make a person look older than his or her actual age. The genes and hereditary factors also play a role in how one looks, whether younger or older.

Take Care to Look, Young,

For one to look young, a proper intake of a healthy balanced diet that contains all vital nutrients is vital. It will keep the skin and hair healthy and glowing. Drinking adequate water helps in conserving the skin elasticity and foils dryness. Consistent physical exercise tones up the muscles and gives radiance to the skin.

It is correspondingly imperative to stay relaxed. Avoid frowning and keep a straight upright posture. A smiling face always looks younger.
