Every year passing, the variation between peers becomes more visible. Such as, some 30-year-old women may look like college students at this age, while others may be confused with their friends’ mothers. And the reasons that affect the appearance can be unexpected. We are going to talk about these reasons in this article.
We at Buzz Idea found out what are these factors that may be “stealing” our youth.
1. First of all, the trend of high cheekbones beauty
Since the cheekbones, from the 1990s came back in style, of the fashion models, some women began to get rid of their Buccal fat pads (who are fat masses in cheeks). The surgery itself is easy not complicated, and patients take it under local anesthesia therefore a surgeon makes incisions on the insides of the cheeks and removes the fat pads. This apparently banal procedure may have serious consequences, and plastic surgeons don’t recommend that patients with narrow faces undergo it, because a face that lacks a part of its natural structural frame may end up looking weak and exhausted in the long run.
For sure, cheekbones naturally defined look beautiful, but only if they’re a genetic gift from our parents and not the result of a surgical change of the facial structure. You should remember that the consequences of this procedure are irreversible, so it’s likely easier to love your chubby cheeks than to pay tribute to fashion and regret the consequences later.
2. Secondly, to do much salon beauty procedures
You’ve may be noticed that the skin of the women who overdo it with salon procedures and peels becomes unnaturally smooth with age, which can remind us of a wax doll. It probably leads to premature aging — the skin will become flabby and thin, and visible wrinkles and capillaries will appear.
Women’s love and passion for another popular procedure, Botox injections, may be appeared by the specific skin shine and flat forehead that is the result of muscle atrophy. It may lead to the loss of natural facial volumes, making the skin look elder. And regular facial designing, with the help of fillers, deforms the natural face anatomy and visually adds extra years. The side effects of these procedures are particularly visible on people who are younger than 35 years old.
The derivation: Beauticians and plastic surgeons have hard times to work with patients whose faces have been transformed by surgery and injections so many times. So later on in life a woman begins undergoing “adult” procedures, the longer she’ll be able to look young and natural.
3. Thirdly, Harsh diets
When a person loses more weight, the “diet face” , more chances, may appear. Due to the lack of fat, the nasolabial lines become visible, wrinkles become deeper, and the lack of volume around the eyes makes the face look exhausted and older.
After a person turns 40, it’s better to take off the desire to lose so much weight or trying to be in the same weight as you were a teenager. A study which was conducted on twins proposes that if a person’s body mass index becomes 4 points higher, a person less than 40 looks older, but a person over 40 looks younger. And after a person becomes elder than 55, they can gain 8 more points on the scale of the body mass index and still look younger than their peers who stick to a strict diet.
4. Fourthly, much or little physical activity
Not only an active lifestyle enhances health, but also gives youth. And this truth is backed up by a study that proposes that elder people who exercise regularly don’t just slow down the aging process, but they have the impunity and the cholesterol levels that may be similar to that of young people.
But you should set healthy limits, because another extreme of a sedentary lifestyle is immoderate physical activity, which may bring harm but not well. The director of the cosmetic clinic in London, Tracy Mountford, referred that after the age of 40, the loss of facial volume may be rushed because of the intensive workouts, and as a result, a person may look older than they really are.
5. Fifthly, “Sugar” face
A sagging skin tone, dull skin, bags under the eyes, inflammation and wrinkles on the forehead are all cause of a love for sweets. Sugar increases glycation — a process where the surplus glucose damages collagen and makes it inelastic, which speeds up the skin’s aging.
6. Sixtly, sleeping on your side or on your stomach
Scientists have figured out that people who sleep badly age quicker. 60 women from age 30 to 50 took part in a study which showed that sleep-deprived women experience signs of skin aging, like pigmentation, wrinkles, and lack of elasticity. Their skin became much more sensitive to environmental factors and its ability to retrieve after it was opened to the sun became lower.
According to another study, the way we sleep is very important too. Everyone changes their body position about 15-20 times per night. In 65% of cases, people sleep on their side, and this contributes to the formation of wrinkles on the face and neck. With age, evryone changes their sleeping position less often — the number drops from 27 to 16 times per night. And the longer one stays in the same position, the longer their skin has to deal with the adverse effects.
7. Seventhly, divorce
According to a study that was made by plastic surgeons, divorce may leave its mark on the face. Twins also participated in this study, and the results showed that people who went through a divorce looked about 2 years older than their siblings who were married, single, or even widowed.
8. Eighthly, antidepressant medications
Stress influenced the visual perception of twins too from the experiment mentioned above. The researchers believe that muscle relaxation reasoned by antidepressants may be a reason for skin sagging.
9. Last but not least, fuzzy philtrum
The philtrum is a small area between the base of the nose and the Cupid’s bow, and it’s a very important element of the facial structure. In young people, this area looks much defined, but with age, it becomes flatter in most people. But you can make the face look younger with the help of beauty products — apply a dark color of contouring product to the philtrum to create shade and then use a highlighter apply it above your upper lip.
