Aging: Know the facts

About Aging

All living organisms grow old with time. By growing old, I am referring to the process of maturation. So am I referring to the elderly when I say “aging”? Definitely not, this is a common misconception. Aging is a process that is affected by many factors ranging from physical to social to psychological. Aging is a process that occurs as we grow; therefore it affects individuals of all ages.

When used in a general sense however, aging refers to the appearance of marks and symptoms on our skin that visibly differentiate us from being young. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, sagging skin, loss of hair, blotches, and puffiness under eyes are just some examples associated with aging.

Aging is one of the most widely researched scientific topics today. Almost everyday, newspapers offers some information regarding some medicines or processes that are being developed to stop aging. One theory suggests that our body is programmed for aging; another theory suggests that aging occurs because of exposure to free radicals.

Whatever the cause, there are certain measures that can be used to suppress the effects of aging. These can be natural, cosmetic or medical in nature.

Natural remedies for aging:

  • Applying glycerine mixed with rose water and lemon juice helps to smooth the skin and prevents wrinkles.
  • Milk cream mixed with a little flour powder acts as a natural scrub and applying it to the face helps in getting rid of the dead cells.
  • Coconut milk and aloe vera helps to rejuvenate the skin.
  • Honey mixed with rose water should be applied to the face for about 30 minutes and then washed. This helps in preventing aging.

Cosmetic remedies for aging:

  • Retinol is found in our body as Vitamin A. It is known to have visible effects on signs of aging. It is an antioxidant and increases the glow on skin by increasing the production of new cells. It also aids in the production of collagen fibers, thereby reducing wrinkles. It is also available in face creams.
  • Salicylic acid, a plant hormone, dissolves the protein keratin that binds dead cells. If used regularly, it reduces signs of aging, lightens skin tone, and reduces scars. If the skin has hyperpigmentation, mandelic acid would be a better choice than salicylic acid.
  • Green tea has antioxidant properties that help in skin rejuvenation.
  • Cosmetic surgery is done to tuck sagging skin. It also helps in restoring lost hair etc.

No matter how effective the remedies are, they will not work if you continuing take part in actions that will cause you to age. Common aging triggers include smoking, lack of sleep, and stress.  Smoking causes the destruction of vital skin components, thereby accelerating aging process. In a fast world, stress and lack of sleep are also two important causes of early signs of aging.

Aging is a process that will occur regardless of what you do, but there are many remedies that can help in reducing the visible signs. Make sure you are not taking part in actions that trigger aging before starting the remedies because they can render them useless.
