Here Are 5 Ways Your Face Will Change When You Get Older

  1. ADULT ACNE

 

 

If you think you are finally done with acne during your teenage years, think again. Unfortunately, acne is not just for teenagers and can actually make their way into your life again in your 20s. Coming to terms with adult acne is not easy but rest assured, you’re not the only one dealing with zits.Pimples popping up on the lower face and along the jawline is particularly a sign of adult acne, says Doris Day, MD, board certified dermatologist who

Pimples popping up on the lower face and along the jawline is particularly a sign of adult acne, says Doris Day, MD, board certified dermatologist who specialises in laser, cosmetic and surgical dermatology in New York City. Your hormones may be to blame as fluctuations, like before your menstrual cycle can explain the cause behind the hated acne beard. The pimples are usually deep under the skin and are painful to the touch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. HYPERPIGMENTATION

 

Hyperpigmentation will bite you in the back if you don’t slap on that sunscreen. Melasma, a form of hyperpigmentation, are brown patches that often occur on foreheads, cheeks and chin and are a result of sun exposure. Sun damage throughout the years causes increased levels of melanin, the pigment in your skin that produces colour.Sun exposure is actually the main cause of skin damage and causes more damage to you than just hyperpigmentation. In case you didn’t know, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light breaks down elastic tissue in the skin and will cause your skin to stretch, sag, wrinkle and become blotchy. So don’t forget that sunscreen the next time you’re out!

  1. DRY SKIN

 

Dry skin sounds like heaven to those who have had oily skin since their teens. But for those who naturally have dry skin, this may be an added nightmare to your beauty routine. Get ready to stock up on heavy duty moisturisers because your skin will get dry and flaky, which is a common problem among all adults. This is because as you age, you lose the oil glands that is responsible for keeping your skin soft. So moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!

 

 

 

  1. SINKING LOOKING FACE

 

When you are young, fat in the face is evenly distributed with some areas that plump up the forehead, temples, cheeks and areas around the eye and mouth. However, with old age, you tend to lose the “chubby” face as the fat loses volume, clumps up and shift downwards. Fat loss may sound ideal now, but it actually causes different areas of the face to sink, and skin starts to get loose and saggy. Fats are no longer distributed evenly in the face, and you might get slightly baggy around the chin.

 

 

 

 

  1. WRINKLES

The first wrinkles tend to appear on your face as a result of facial expressions, which are called expression or animation lines. If you’re very facially expressive, you might want to tone it down a notch because these can cause deep ones in the forehead and between the brows.Sure, you can be smiling, squinting and frowning without any thought now but as you age, your skin may not be able to spring back as often anymore as it loses its flexibility, resulting in wrinkles.

If you are constantly exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, you are also increasing the chance of developing wrinkles at an earlier stage. This is because UV light breaks down the collagen in your skin which is located deep down under the surface to support the skin. As UV light breaks down this much-needed support system, your skin becomes weaker and less flexible, hence resulting in droopy, wrinkly skin.
