Your Guide To Reversing The 7 Signs Of Skin Aging—Organically!

Reverse The 7 Signs Of Ageing

Widely popularized by beauty brands, you must’ve heard, more than once, that there are 7 visible signs of skin aging. And while each of them appear at different ages—progressively, as you get older—lifestyle, environmental, nutritional, and genetic factors also contribute to how quickly or how delayed the process of skin aging will be for you.

As with anything else, prevention is better than cure but if you didn’t get the beauty memo in time, don’t worry; there are some steps you can undertake to reverse the 7 signs of aging—or at least, slow them down!

7 Organic Solutions To Reverse Or Arrest The 7 Visible Signs Of Skin Aging 

Uneven skin tone

 If you’ve noticed dark patches, discoloration or pigmentation that wasn’t there before, they’re early signs of skin aging. Hormonal changes cause your complexion and skin tone to become more uneven as you get older.

Identify what is the underlying cause of your uneven skin tone. If it’s a hormonal issue like PCOS, focus on getting things in control with your gynecologist. If the reason for uneven skin tone is aging, look for organic products that have rosehip oil which helps reduce pigmentation. It is rich in Vitamins A and C, and has Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids which improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture.

Dull, sallow skin 

 Youthful skin has a visible bounce and radiance, but as your skin begins to age, areas under the eyes can appear a little hollow or sallow (darker or like you have dark circles). 

Organic skincare solution for dull, sallow skin

Treat dull, sallow skin with a dose of vitamin C. A brightening agent, vitamin C can be found in organic sources like oranges, strawberries, marula oil, and kakadu plum. All of these ingredients can even help brighten the discolored skin on your lips.

Fine lines, wrinkles, or crow’s feet

The skin under our eyes is thinner than the skin on the rest of the face. One of the first signs of aging for most people tends to be the appearance of crow’s feet or fine lines and creases in the under-eye area. Similarly, you may notice more visible laugh lines around the mouth, or wrinkles on your forehead because your skin loses elasticity and doesn’t look as smooth as before.

Nature’s retinol, look for natural ingredients high in Vitamin A like carrot seed oil, cacay oil, bakuchiol and rambutan. And when it comes to antioxidants, they help slow down the process of skin aging by reducing oxidative stress. Licorice, pomegranate, caffeine, green tea and saffron are natural antioxidants, often found in organic skincare products.

Age spots

Sometimes, parts of your skin start to harbor more melanin than others cause blotchy skin. Sun spots and an increase in freckles or small brown dots on the face are all early signs of skin aging.

Here, too, brightening ingredients like lemon, papaya, and oranges will help treat age spots and even out your skin tone. But above all, most age spots are caused by progressive sun damage as we get older, so the best advice would be to make using sunscreen or sunblock a non-negotiable step in your skincare.

Dehydrated skin

As your skin ages, it’s unable to retain moisture. This is why younger looking skin is often associated with a ‘dewy’ and ‘radiant’ complexion, and older looking tends to look more dry, dehydrated and flaky.

Look for natural ingredients in your organic skincare products that hydrate your skin or act as a humectant (preserve skin moisture). Ingredients like honey, aloe vera, cucumber, and milk are great examples of ingredients that can rehydrate or retain moisture in your skin.

Visible pores & texture

As you age, your once baby soft skin will start to look more textured because of loss of elasticity and slower cell turnover. This is because you’re accumulating dead skin but the skin cell renewal rate is slowing down. This is sometimes accompanied by visibly large pores—especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin areas). 

Organic skincare solution for large pores and treat textured skin

Accelerate the process of cell renewal through an exfoliation routine—2 times a week. Use organic scrubs that are made with natural and gentle ingredients like sugar, oatmeal, almond powders, or clay. This will help even out the texture of your skin. Finish with a natural toner like spritzing rose water, green tea mist, mint water, aloe vera, or cucumber spritz to tighten and minimize skin pores.

Sagging

Elastin and collagen are responsible for keeping your skin plump, taut, and tight. As you get older, your skin produces less of both. This leads to skin sagging because the cells under are not primed to help it bounce back or look firm like it used to when you are younger.

If you’re looking to maintain a youthful appearance and want skin that’s plump and vibrant, keeping it deeply moisturized is the key. Look for face oils that are packed with good fats and antioxidants like pomegranate face oil, carrot seed face oil, rosehip face oil, avocado face oil, or even argan face oil. If you prefer creams, opt for moisturizers with natural butters like shea, almond, cocoa, olive or coconut butter.
