Skin aging is something that almost everyone wants to avoid as much as they could. Skin aging is not only unsightly, it also shows how old you look. Let's face it, no one wants to look wrinkly and dry, that is why the anti aging market has boomed into a multi million dollar industry. But in order to delay and treat skin aging, we must first know what the signs and symptoms of skin aging are.
Did you know that signs of aging start to appear as early as 13 years old? The teen years, also known as the adolescent period is when changes on the body start to occur. There's acne and acne scars. Fine lines also start to appear. It may not be really considered as a serious sign of skin aging because the body hasn't fully developed yet so there's a chance that it will improve. But of course there's also a chance that it would get worse, especially when unhealthy habits start to kick in.
The real signs and symptoms of skin aging appear during the early 20's to early 30's. This is the period when minor wrinkles start to appear as well as fine lines and skin sagging under the eyes. Pores also tend to appear bigger and you'll also notice a slight loss of elasticity on the skin. Wrinkles start to get very prominent during the early 40's. And as a person ages more, the lines tend to get more and more prominent and the skin gets saggy and dry.
Now that we know the signs and symptoms of skin aging, may this serve as our reminder that we should take care of our skin as early as possible before it's too late.
