Do You Know How Our Face Ages?


Signs of aging exist at every layer of the facial structure, including skin, fat-pads, muscles, and bones.

Generally as we age, facial bone changes, soft tissues (like muscles) fall due to gravity, and skin sags and droops downward.

We lose collagen and elastin, which can lead to the formation of dynamic wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Due to repeated facial movement, dynamic wrinkles eventually become static lines that are gradually etched into the skin over time. 

Fat-pads are located below the skin’s surface and help to provide volume, facial contours, and fullness. As we age, fat-pads get thinner and descend. As a result, our face may not look as round and firm as it did in our youth. Hollows can form beneath the eyes, drooping skin can cause deeper lines around the nose and mouth, loose skin can result in a sagging jawline, and fat can accumulate beneath the chin, resulting in fullness between the neck and chin (“double chin”). The loss and downward movement of fat-pads can also make the face appear deflated and sunken in the cheek area. 

Our facial muscles lie beneath our facial fat-pads. There are dozens of muscles in the face, but most people only actively use about half of them. Facial muscles get weaker over time. The loss of muscle tone and thinning skin can give the face a loose, sagging appearance. Our jawline loses its contour, and our profile becomes less defined.

As we age, we also experience a loss of facial glands, which results in less oil produced, contributing to less moisture in the skin.

Oily serums help the skin lock in hydration which prevents skin from becoming dry.

The bone structure is what gives us our unique facial shape and contour. A youthful bone structure has full and high cheeks and defined brow bones and less sunken eye areas. With age, we experience facial bone loss. This type of bone loss changes the dimensions and contour of our face, causing areas around our eyes to get larger, a decrease in the angle of our brow bone, and a less sculpted jawline.      

But there are ways to naturally return youthful appearance to the skin.

The most complete way is to work with an individual Beauty Coach that sees how exactly your face ages, what exercises or massage and how frequently you should do them in order to improve the changes, how to work with your bones and structures to return the lost volume.

 Face apps also work but they do not provide a personalized approach and you can do more harm than good without proper understanding of your individual needs.

Ageing is something you can work with and look and feel your best day after day.
