AT WHAT AGE SHOULD YOU WORRY ABOUT WRINKLES APPEARING AND HOW DO THEY FORM?
by Michael Ramirez
Most women notice the first signs of aging in their mid-20’s to early 30’s. Seeing wrinkles around your eyes for the first time can be startling, but it’s perfectly natural. Anti-wrinkle products won’t reverse aging completely, but they can slow down the process and give you time to age gracefully.
The Wrinkle-Forming Process
Although wrinkles may appear to pop up overnight, the process of wrinkle development occurs over many years. While everyone’s’ bodies age at different rates, here is a general overview of what you can expect in your 20’s – 60’s:
Your 20’s:This is the time when the raging hormones that contributed to your tortured teenage skin start to settle down and balance out. Don’t be surprised if you experience your first bout of noticeable skin dryness in your mid-20’s. This is generally the time when sebum production starts to dip a bit. As the skin dries, the first fine wrinkles around the eyes and mouth may start to appear. This is a good time to implement an anti-wrinkle regimen that includes anti-wrinkle serums.
Your 30’s: Your skin starts to become thinner as its elastin and collagen levels begin to decrease. It’s normal for the skin to become drier in your 30’s, and you may also notice increased skin sensitivity. Fine lines start to become deeper and more pronounced. Anti-aging serum can help nurture the skin and provide it with the moisture it needs to maintain some of its elasticity.
Your 40’s:A furrow may appear on your forehead in your 40’s, and you’ll notice a greater number of deep wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. Continuous loss of elastin is to blame for increased wrinkles.
Your 50’s and 60’s:Sun spots, roughness and wrinkles increase and become “set” in the skin. Think of the many deep wrinkles as “character marks” that showcase a life well-lived.
