If you are one of them, we got you sorted with these skin health tips from dermatologists that serve as perfect beauty hacks for men and women. However, it is important to note the causes first and identify its characteristics, before hunting solutions.
Characteristics and causes of premature ageing:
Dr Chytra V Anand, Celebrity Cosmetic Dermatologist and Founder of Kosmoderma Clinics in Bengaluru asserts, “Ageing is fine but premature ageing is not. Premature ageing is characterised by fine lines, pigmentation, loss of vitality and elasticity as well as skin laxity. As we age, the skin’s extracellular matrix (which is the skin glue) starts weakening with loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.”
Echoing the same, Dr Kiran Sethi Lohia, Managing Director and Integrative Aesthetic and Skin Physician at Isya Aesthetics in New Delhi shares, “With pollution, stress, contaminated and unhealthy diets/food and blue light from our screens, we are aging faster than ever before and with lockdown resulting in self- analysis and research online, people are more aware than ever.”
