How Your Skin Changes as You Age


When we think of aging skin, three things likely come to mind: wrinkles, wrinkles and more wrinkles! But the skin is a complex organ that endures significant wear and tear over the course of our lives. Sun exposure, air pollution, stress, nutrition, and hormonal fluctuations—not to mention your daily skincare habits—all influence how your skin looks at any given age.

Oprah.com recently published an article outlining how your skin ages, highlighting skin issues we’re likely to experience in our 20s, 30s and beyond—and wrinkles are only one common consequence of aging. For instance, did you know that sunken, hollow cheeks (common in one’s 50s) are partially due to loss of bone density in your eye sockets, or that a slow-down in cell turnover is often the culprit behind a dull complexion?

If you’re curious about what you might expect a few years down the road, or you’re wondering if it’s normal to get frown lines in your 20s, take a few minutes to read the article—you might learn something new!
