No matter how hard we try to stop the biological clock you have to accept the fact that every living being on the planet ages. Skin aging is a consequence of hormones and genes as well as our surrounding and the way of life.
Science tries so hard to discover the secret of aging and learn how to stop it, it seems like the most it can do is minimize the signs and slow the process down.
WHY DOES OUR SKIN AGE?
The speed of aging is determined by our genes because our genes determine the length of life our cells will have. Free radicals are also factor that can affect and speed up aging, because they are toxins that gather around in the cells during some chemical processes. Free radicals can also speed up the process of aging because they are formed as a result of exposure to UV light, smoking, excess use of alcohol.
Modern and seeded up way of life is another factor that speeds up the aging mostly as a result of stress and tiredness.
Exposed to all these factors, the outer layer of the skin dries, damages start to show, lack of collagen in elastin affects the elasticity, and the fat tissue under the skin starts to disappear. As a result of all these factors the skin loses the tonus, becomes saggy and with visible wrinkles.
Most people try to suppress the signs of aging using Botox treatments, not even being aware about the dangerous side effects that this treatment can have. It is not just the pain, swelling, bruises and bleeding, Botox treatments can cause far more dangerous side effects as flu like symptoms, allergies, respiratory infections as well as dying of the treated muscle tissue.
