What Ages Us

Have you ever had the experience of watching someone famous on TV and thinking, Wow, they look tired ? Then, you realize it’s the signs of aging. I had this experience recently while watching a politician speak. His face was lined and sagging, and he looked, well, very sad. There’s one major reason why we look old: We lose volume. Our skin stays the same, but when fat is absorbed, our face shows it the most visibly. This was the case with the politician — he had lost so much volume that it made him look old and tired. Reclaiming Our Youth

Jane Iredale. It’s good quality; protects from the sun’s rays, including UVA, which causes wrinkles, and UVB, which causes cancer; and, once you know how to use it well, it has rejuvenating qualities. Men may be at a disadvantage when it comes to covering up. There are a large number of cover-ups and hats available for women, but not many options for men. However, they can use baseball caps or cowboy hats to protect their face, and everyone can wear longer sleeves to prevent further exposure. If you notice your skin reddening, go inside because your body is telling you it needs a break. All this isn’t to say that we should completely avoid the sun. Some sun is good and useful, as long as we don’t stay outside too long and take measures to protect exposed areas like our face, arms, and neck. There are good, bad, and ugly sides to sun exposure, like most aspects of life. Choose wisely, protect and care for yourself, and eat well, and you can maintain youthful skin for years to come.

“When applied by a professional, fillers are an effective way to recreate the volume that makes us look younger.”

The appearance of volume is dependent on good levels of hormones, like testosterone and estrogen, to give the skin vivacity and elasticity. It’s like a balloon full of air: It starts out taut and full, and when the balloon lose some air, it gets crinkly. This affects the face more than other parts of our body because the face is the area that’s most frequently exposed to sun and oxygen. It’s why sunscreen and covering up the skin can protect us against radiation and some of the harmful environmental factors that cause aging. This is the reason we use fillers. Fillers give skin its fullness and create a youthful appearance. When applied by a professional, fillers are an effective way to recreate the volume that makes people look younger.
