Aging Skin: 5 Things That Make Your Skin Look Older

Wrinkles and fine lines are unwelcome signs of the aging process. However, wrinkles are not the only things that make your skin look older. There are several telltale signs of aging skin, most of which can be treated or covered up to create a more youthful look. Here are five things that can certainly make your skin look older.

Dead Skin Cells 

Dead skin cells can make your skin look dull, leathery and older than it should. As you get older, your skin becomes less efficient at removing dead skin cells naturally. Gently exfoliating your skin every other day with a soft brush, sponge or exfoliating cleanser helps to loosen and remove these dead skin cells. However, the best way to exfoliate is to visit a professional.

Dry Skin 

Dry skin is more prone to wrinkles, crow’s feet and creases on the forehead. Keeping your skin moisturized will help to keep it soft and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Uneven Skin Tone 

Uneven skin tone can range from subtle differences in the shade of your skin to obvious blemishes. Concealer, foundation and other cosmetics can cover imperfections and give your skin a more youthful look. However, these only mask the issue. You’ll find treatments for these problems at our med spa in San Antonio.

Sun Damage 

Sun damage is one of the biggest causes of premature aging skin, wrinkles and skin blemishes. UV rays from the sun can accelerate the aging process and leave your skin feeling dry and rough. Protecting your skin from UV rays is one of the best things you can do to prevent wrinkles.

Broken Veins 

Broken or spider veins on your face can be caused by a number of things, including sun exposure, alcohol, coughing, allergies, hormones and even changes in the weather. Whatever the cause of broken veins, they can usually be treated.

Dead skin cells, dry skin, uneven skin tone, sun damage and broken veins can all contribute to the appearance of aging skin. To find out about all of your treatment options, contact us today at Spa Black in San Antonio and book a consultation!
