It is important for you to be aware of the indicators of aging. Accordingly, you can consider anti-aging treatments. Your skin is the most visible indicator of aging. This explains why anti-aging treatments are designed to focus on your skin.
Your skin suffers damage from excessive exposure to the sun’s ultra-violet rays, dehydration, etc.
Here are common signs that reveal that you are aging:
1. Dehydrated/Dry skin

Causes: Over-exposure to the Sun, the natural slowing of cell renewal, inadequate skin care.
Solution: Our dermatologists suggest walking more, eating fresh and local foods, and eating slower. Get rest and sleep. Limit sun exposure, follow a consistent skincare routine, and get enough vitamin C.
2. Sagging skin

Causes: Collagen and elastin are the two important proteins that provide structure and elasticity to your skin. Over time, your body’s natural production of these proteins decreases.
Solution: Balanced diet with vitamin A, adequate exercise and sleep, a healthy weight, and limiting exposure to the Sun.
3. Fine lines and wrinkles
