Skin looking older than your age puts everyone in a tizzy, especially those in their 20s and 30s. Some signs of this process appear slowly, while others demand immediate attention.

For the most part, giving early attention with topical treatments is the first line of all natural protection. But when expensive creams and chemical ladened peels are no longer effective, what then?

New technology has brought a wealth of minimally invasive procedures to fight the signs of aging, as well as new, less irritating topical treatments. But what’s the most effective method to combat early signs of aging?

The state of skin

Skin from around the age of 25, begins to show the first signs of aging, becoming apparent on the surface of the skin. First, fine lines appear and turn into deep wrink- les, then a loss of volume and loss of elasticity set in, becoming acute and noticeable in time.

There are many different reasons for this. While many of the causes of skin aging are entirely natural and cannot be altered. There are, several other factors that cause skin to age prematurely, and these can be influenced.

A holistic approach to lifestyle and skincare can help to reduce the visible signs of skin aging and reverse premature skin aging.

The full understanding of the way internal and external factors affect skin’s structure and function can help to inform choices you have about treatment and care.

Sun is a friend and an enemy of your skin

The sun is richest and the only source of Vitamin D your body requires for maintaining healthy skin. But what is harmful is overdoing it.

We find it very easy to tell ourselves while stepping out of the car for a quick errand without a hat or skipping sunscreen on a cloudy day is harmless. But this is not true. No matter the overcast, UV damage will eventually catch up and the skin begins to show and impact the skin.

The hard part to understand is there’s a delay between when sun exposure occurred and when its effects manifest. So be kind to your current and future skin-self.

Avoid sunbathing for extended time periods at a stretch. And the same holds true for those tanning booth as well. Sport a hat and sunglasses, and always wear a broad- spectrum sunscreen. You’ll enjoy healthy, glowing skin for years to come.

We live in a modern world with hyped messages about how dangerous the sun is. We should remember that the ancient cultures knew how to use the sun to heal all kinds of illnesses, and bring about radiant health. We evolved as a human race for millions of years under the warmth and love of the sun. Sunlight in moderation does more good than harm. It is very important for good skin health too.
