|Aging or Photoaging: Why Not All Wrinkles Are Necessary|
Nowadays, we’re constantly told to use multiple products that can reduce visible signs of aging, or even make them disappear altogether.
The truth is, not all wrinkles are the same and therefore, they shouldn’t be treated the same way.
Aging or Photo-Aging: Why Not All Wrinkles Are Necessary
First of all, let’s make this clear: Aging isn’t That Bad!
Aging isn’t something you should be afraid of: it’s natural and it happens to all of us, including animals and plants. It’s definitely difficult seeing changes on your face and the rest of the body, but once you learn to embrace them, you’ll feel less anxious about getting older.
Then, What is Photoaging?
Wrinkles usually first appear around the eyes, then around the lips and lastly, people start getting dark spots on their hands.
Photoaging is the type of aging that happens due to chronic exposure to UVA and UVB sun rays. This aging is different from intrinsic (regular) aging because it results from environmental factors, and it isn’t determined by genetics.
Signs and Symptoms
The most common symptoms are wrinkles around the parts of the body that are often exposed to direct sunlight, mostly eyes, forehead, and mouth.
Treatment and Prevention
The best treatment is limiting your exposure to direct UVA and UVB lights especially during hot weather conditions and peak hours (between noon and afternoon).
Don’t Forget Self-Care
Home remedies such as DIY Masks and Cleansers can have a positive effect on your skin, due to natural rich ingredients and lack of harsh chemicals.
As mentioned before, aging is a normal process and the sooner you embrace, the better you’ll feel. On the other hand, photoaging can be damaging to your skin and health, so if you must expose yourself to sun rays, make sure to regularly wear sunscreen when you leave the house and don’t forget to keep your skin properly cleansed and moisturized.
So This was it for today. I hope you have found this post helpful.
Have a Good Day! 😇
