The 4 Dreaded Signs of Aging and How to Combat Them

No-one likes getting old. That’s a fact. And no-one likes looking old either. That is also a fact.

So what do you do on that frightful morning when you drag yourself out of bed and into the bathroom, and notice a grey strand in your hair, or a wrinkle or two under your eyes? Do you crawl into a hole and never surface ever again? Do you walk around wearing a balaclava for the rest of your life?

The simple answer is ‘do not fear’. You combat the pesky bugger head on, embrace aging and more importantly, do something about it.

We have put together the 4 dreaded signs of aging. By doing this, you will know what to look out for, so that you can tackle the issue with full force. Remember, the best way to stop the clock and fight tired, old skin is with a proper anti-aging beauty skin care regime.  Your face and skin don’t have to give away your age if you don’t want it to!

1.      Turkey neck

turkey-neckIf you haven’t heard of this before, basically this can occur when the muscles in the neck start to sag. Gravity takes its toll and your skin unfortunately begins to drop. A lot of weight fluctuation in your life can cause this, as well as a breakdown of the lymphatic system.

Anyone, male or female, is at risk of getting this because as we age our skin loses its elasticity.

Solution? There are facial exercises that you can do to reduce the appearance, and there are neck creams and serums that you can apply to improve elasticity and firm the skin.

2.      Spotted hands

As you age, the veins on your hands can stand out more prominently. Brown spots and sun damage can also show your age.

Solution? Moisturising your hands every day with a high quality hand cream can prevent dry, rough and aged skin; or alternatively, you can get fillers to plump up your hands.

3.      Fine lines and wrinkles


A loss of elasticity and collagen reduces the skin’s volume and this causes fine lines and wrinkles. Frown lines are natural and begin to appear as you age, but if they are not properly cared for they tend to deepen and become more prominent.

Solution? You can combat fine lines and wrinkles with Botox treatment, fillers and lasers. You can also use moisturisers with antioxidant nutrients, and adequate sunscreen to protect you from harmful UVA and UVB rays. The Skinceutical range is really effective!

4.      Dull looking skin

As you age, your skin can lose its sparkle it once had. Over time, it is exposed to very harsh chemicals including sun damage, smoke and stress. The result? Your skin can lose its glow and start to look dull.

Solution? Give yourself a facial once a week. Cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise properly and your skin will start to regain its youthful radiance. Also, drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated!


Aging is an inevitable part of being human. Whether you like it or not, there will come a day when you start to look your wise self. However, that doesn’t mean that you cannot do everything in your power to fight back those years in the meantime!
