Skin aging is a natural process in the body that cannot be prevented. However, it can be postponed with more care. However, aging does not always make your skin look old and fragile. An unhealthy lifestyle, smoking, air pollution, and sun exposure also damage the skin. However, we know that prevention is always better than cure. So, think about taking care of and rejuvenating your facial skin until the job ends!
Before we talk about skin rejuvenation methods, it is better to know the signs of aging in the skin of the face to take timely action to rejuvenate the skin. Next, we mentioned some of the main signs of skin aging.
The first signs of skin aging begin with lines around the eyes, laugh and frown lines, and forehead lines. At first, these lines are dynamic. They will be revealed only when you change your facial expression.
Wrinkles usually appear from the age of thirty. (THE article “Why Is My Skin Wrinkling At A Young Age?” may interest you.) However, the aging process is different for different people. As a result, the appearance of these wrinkles depends on the genetics and lifestyle of the person.
Changes in the skin over time have caused the skin to loosen and sag, and below we will examine the leading causes of these changes:
As age increases, collagen and elastin production in the skin decreases. As a result, facial skin moisture is reduced. Crow’s feet lines laugh lines, darkness, and dryness of the skin also happen for this reason.
There is adipose tissue under the different layers of the skin. This fatty tissue maintains the shape of the face well. However, with increasing age, these fat layers become thin and disappear. As a result, wrinkles around the lips and on the forehead are more noticeable.

The facial muscles are located under the fat tissue. As fat tissue is lost, these muscles lose strength and become loose. The earth’s gravity pulls the facial muscles down and forms a triangle on the base.
Bones are the main structure of the face, with muscles and fat on them. As we said, losing fat causes the face to become thinner, and the loss of muscles causes facial skin to sag. As a result, the shape and angle of the face change.
The skin consists of three layers: epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. In addition to being connected to fat and muscle tissue, these three layers are also responsible for building new cells and repairing the skin. On average, about 30,000 skin cells die and are replaced every minute. However, aging, smoking, ultraviolet rays from the sun, and using inappropriate detergents disrupt the function of these cells to some extent.
Wrinkles, acne, freckles and stains, dryness, and peeling, are the most common skin problems that arise over time or due to improper care. One of the ways to prevent and take better care of facial skin is through skin rejuvenation methods. By doing different skin rejuvenation methods, you can significantly prevent skin aging. Of course, different measures can be taken to rejuvenate the neck, hands, and other areas, and we do not mean the skin is limited to the face.
