How can one ensure that the skin doesn’t wither to a point beyond repair? Get a headstart to hold off the tell-tale signs of ageing.

As you age, your skin no longer sheds and renews itself as quickly as it used to. Typically, the visible signs of ageing are seen in the late 20s or early 30s. These changes start earlier but are not visible to the naked eye. Hence, it is only wise to take preventive steps if you want to retain the youthfulness of your skin. To know what your skin lacks is the first step in delaying ageing.

Describing the process of ageing, Dr Rohini Wadhwa, medical director, Skin Essentials, says, “The muscles of the face and the neck begin to sag and fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear. Wrinkles develop because natural substances like collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid decrease with age. These are responsible for providing the skin with its structure and volume. The ability of the skin to hold water also decreases and this, coupled with decreased production of sweat, causes the skin to become dry.”

As the environment wears down the surface of the skin, free radicals and loss of moisture causes the skin to show signs of damage in the form of age spots, wrinkles, and thinning or drooping. However, with proper care, all of this can be kept at bay.


A care regimen and healthy lifestyle choices can help delay the natural ageing process and keep the skin glowing despite the years.

A vast number of factors like excessive sun exposure, smoking, stress, certain drugs and chemicals, pollution and diet may cause premature ageing. The appearance of your skin is largely dependent upon moisture. Help it out by drinking enough water individual needs vary, but two litres a day is considered good for everyone and using a good moisturiser after bath and before bedtime every day. Hydrating the skin maintains its lustre.

Also, stick to a high-fibre diet as this clears toxins from the body. Eat fruits and vegetables like broccoli, orange, spinach and carrots. Add vitamin supplements to your diet, if necessary. Those who suffer from acne, should eat foods containing zinc (e.g. roasted pumpkin seeds, soybean) and avoid foods rich in iodine and bromides (e.g. shrimp, sea bass, leafy vegetables).
