Anti Aging Advice - Top Tips for Helping Skin Age Well

There are a couple of different things that help the skin age. These would be intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging has to do with the genes that we have inherited and how they handle the stress of aging. Extrinsic aging however; are factors that we can control such as the environment in which we expose our skin to over a lifetime.

Intrinsic aging of course is also known as natural aging and will begin when we are in our middle twenty's. The production of collagen begins to slow down and the ability for the skin to kind of snap back in place also begins to slow at this time. The dead cells begin to shed slower and new cells are not produced as often. All of these changes may begin at an early age but usually takes decades for the true signs of aging to be visible. Depending upon your genetic make up will determine the speed at which the normal process will start showing. Those who have a disorder called “Werner's Syndrome” will start showing the signs of aging in their early 30's and may even start getting gray hair in their twenties.

We have no control over intrinsic aging but we do have a lot of control over the extrinsic aging process. One of the main things that we can control is our amount of exposure we allow our skin to have with the sun. Most of a person's premature aging can probably attributed to over exposure to the suns rays. In order for the skin to stay young longer it is important that you limit your exposure to the sun whenever you can. The sun can cause age spots, deep wrinkles and leathery looking skin far earlier than a person should have these signs of aging skin.

Believe it or not, but if you do a lot of facial exercises to supposedly help keep up a younger appearance, you might want to stop. When you start doing these types of repetitive movements of the face you are actually going to create more lines and wrinkles in the skin on your face. Every time that we use one of our facial muscles we begin to create a groove under the skin and this is when we start to see those fine lines on the surface. When the skin begins to age it will begin to lose the elasticity and those grooves are going to be permanently there on your face as wrinkles.

Gravity has a lot to do with our skin condition, unfortunately there really isn't anything we can do about how the gravity affects our skin as well as other parts of our body.

How we sleep on our face does have an effect on the aging of the skin. If you happen to rest your face on your pillow the same way every night for years and years, this is going to cause a variety of wrinkles in your face. Laying on your sides or on your stomach with your face buried in a pillow can cause chin and forehead wrinkles. If you lay on your back a lot, this will cut down on the facial wrinkles.

If you are a smoker, there will be chemical changes in your body caused by the smoking and this change will speed up the aging process of your skin. A person that smokes will have skin that is more similar to those who have been exposed to far too much sun during their lifetime.
