Skin changes take place throughout your lifetime. They tend to take place slowly and often go unnoticed – until they become glaringly obvious. To best take care of your skin, you need to know what you’ll be facing.
Sun and age aren’t the only causes of skin changes. Your genetic makeup will also affect how quickly the signs of aging appear and the severity. You’ll observe a loss of firmness and elasticity, skin that appears dull and saggy, more lines and wrinkles, and sun damage will be more pronounced.
As you age, you lose collagen brought about by hormonal changes. The body begins to produce less estrogen throughout your lifetime, but it’s at the age of 40 that it becomes most noticeable. The loss results in less abundant fatty deposits, collagen and elastin.
Less estrogen results in less collagen that plumps the skin and gives it a youthful appearance. The skin loses volume, making it appear dull and saggy. Wrinkles and sun damage will be more pronounced. Less estrogen can also result in bone loss that affects the entire structure of your face.
Depending upon genetics, skin may begin to thin in your 40s rather than in your 50s when it typically begins to occur. Thinner skin opens the door to a greater risk of redness, along with broken capillaries and blood vessels. Your skin can also develop a dull, sallow appearance instead of the pink blush of youth.
Other changes take place when you turn 40. Your skin will be drier and less firm, particularly around the eyes and jaw area. It makes for a baggy and saggy appearance that makes you appear older than your actual age. Age spots and itchiness are often present. Hot and cold temperatures will affect your skin more than they did before.
You may discover that different types of skincare products are needed to support cell turnover, hydrate and repair skin. Peels can target melasma, sun damage, uneven tone, and rough texture. Topicals will provide some help for the top layer of skin, but you’ll want to incorporate laser treatments and other methods that reach below the skin’s surface.
