Aging And Wrinkles
It seems that about the same time we outgrow acne we meet wrinkles. It hardly seems fair but there you have it.
Children have what is often referred to as the bloom of youth. Their skin seems to glow and, in effect, it really does glow.
The skin of children retains water….that ability reduces with time.
By the time the teen age years strike and hormones start to rage, the skin is sometimes plagued by pimples or acne.
With the discovery of Retin A this teenage problem has mostly been brought under control….at least for those who are fortunate enough to be financially able to see a dermatologist and get a prescription for it.
The youthful glow doesnt disappear overnight. It fades. It fades so slowly that it is hardly noticeable even from year to year.
We often refer to the changes that take place in the skin between the ages of 20 and 30 as maturing.
It is in fact a lessening of the skins ability to retain water. The skin begins to dry.
Somewhere around the age of thirty, most people will begin to notice very fine lines around their eyes or their mouths….these arent deep wrinkles…yet…but rather surface lines.
As the years slip by, the subcutaneous (the third layer of skin) begins to lose fat cells.
The dermis (the second layer of skin) begins to lose elastin and collagen. The epidermis (the first or outer layer of the skin) becomes dryer and thinner.
Wrinkles form. By the age of forty, those fine lines at age thirty have become wrinkles.
Time goes by and the skin has more exposure to sunlight. Facial expressions continue.
The subcutaneous, dermis and epidermis continue to lose fat cells, elastin and collagen. The wrinkles become deeper and more firmly etched into the skin as a whole.
