Moisturizing regularly keeps the cells hydrated and healthy
As you age, you will notice your skin becomes thinner. Moisturizing regularly keeps the cells hydrated and healthy. Preventing thin skin may not be 100% possible. Based on your genetics and lifestyle, this may happen at any age between 50 and 70. The dermal layer of your skin doesn’t rejuvenate itself like it used to. The cells don’t divide as quickly. Your skin may look pale or even translucent due to a reduction in pigment. The fat cells in the hypodermal layer will begin to break down and your skin will become loose, thin, and hang freely.
Preventing thin skin may not be 100% possible, but you can definitely reduce the thinning and increase the age at which it begins to take effect on you. As with most skin conditions, the #1 prevention method is to use a moisturizing sunscreen regularly. UV ray exposure speeds up the process of thinning skin by damaging the cells and drying out the dermal layer. Moisturizing regularly keeps the cells hydrated and healthy, so even though they don’t rejuvenate as much, they stay healthy longer. You can apply a moisturizer with at least SPF 15 daily and enjoy your thick skin as long as you can.
Understanding what is going to happen before hand gives you the power to do something to help prevent or lessen the effects of aging. Time stops for nobody. Everyone will have to deal with aging skin in some fashion. We can, however, reduce the thinning of your skin by using plenty of moisturizer, by using SPF 15, and especially by practicing good lifestyle habits. Get started today!
