Signs of Aging Skin

As we become older our skin tells a lot about us and can even give away our age. There are basically four different ages when our skin really begins to show. If you know what is coming then you can help to combat aging skin.

In the thirties is when the fine lines start to appear and the skin pigmentation will begin to get spotty. These fine lines usually begin near your eyes. This is because the skin creases more here with time. If you love to be out in the sun this area will be even more pronounced. To help hold back this sign of aging try using a good lift-and-firm eye cream with an SPF higher than 12.

When you are in your forties those tiny lines are starting to appear more around the eyes and the forehead, and the dreaded crow's feet have started to set in. On the cheeks you will begin to notice brown spots or broken capillaries. The skin pores may begin to appear to be larger. There are a couple of different skin-care products that you may want to start to use to make the aging of your skin less noticeable. You will still want to continue using the lift-and-firm eye cream, but also you want to help fade those brown spots. This can be done by using a photo-age corrector.

When you hit your fifties you can expect that the forehead fine lines have become more prominent and are more like furrows. Your smile lines are also beginning to show. The spotty marks on your cheeks are now blotchier. With menopause your skin is drier. Try using a wrinkle and UV damage corrector and a good moisturizer.

Once you reach your sixties your skin has begun to sag and has lost a lot of its elasticity. Those once-fine lines are pronounced. Those who have neglected to use sun screen over the years can expect to find more brown patches. The brown patches have become rougher and are raised. You will want to use a cream that helps to restore moisture to the skin. A good hydrating intense night cream that helps to give the appearance of having a more smooth and lifted look on your face.

There are preventive measures that can be done through the years that will help to offset the wrinkles and the skin from looking blotchy. Start now by using a good sunscreen. A sunscreen that has at least a rating of SPF 15 is a good healthy start. At night be sure to use a moisturizer to help keep your skin hydrated.
