There are few inevitabilities in life, but ageing sure is one of them. We all fall prey to the hands of time and it just so happens that our bodies tend to take the brunt of this process. While it would be nice to look twenty five forever, we’re bound to start looking older as we pass age milestones and get a little life experience under our belts. The good news is that you don’t have to necessarily embrace ageing as it hits you. Sure, it’s all fine and well to age “gracefully” if that’s what makes you happy. But there’s nothing wrong with taking active steps to combat signs of ageing either. Here’s a little information that could help you to achieve this!
The age at which people’s hair goes grey differs from one person to another. But there do tend to be trends based on your race. Studies have found that (generally) caucasian individuals tend to start going grey in their mid thirties and Asian individuals start losing colour in their hair during their late thirties, while African-American individuals don’t tend to go grey until their mid forties. This isn’t something to worry about. It’s natural and something that will happen to all of us at some point or another. Grey hair is simply a sign that the pigment follicles in your hair follicles have died – the hair no longer holds as much melanin and goes a more transparent colour. Many people embrace this look. Just think of the traditional “silver fox”. But you can also always dye your hair if you want. If you go DIY, make sure to do a patch test for safety reasons. If you go to the salon, all of the work will be taken out of your hands and you have greater chances of better results.
Balding is also a completely natural process and happens to be much more prevalent in men than women. While there may not be a way to prevent balding (it is genetic), you can engage with procedures such as scalp micropigmentation in order to give the appearance of more hair on your head.
We get wrinkles as we age, as our skin naturally becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic. Our skin is less capable of protecting itself from damage as we grow older too! Now, there are various routes that you can take in order to prevent wrinkles. If you are still relatively young, you should pick up a thorough skin care routine in order to improve the all-round quality of your skin. People of all ages could also consider botox. This is a form of injection that freezes the muscles in your face, preventing the skin from wrinkling up.
While there are plenty of different signs of ageing that the majority of us are bound to experience, there are ways to combat them. Hopefully, the above information has given you some ideas and can get the ball rolling in the right direction!
